THE elder brother of late Mufumbwe MMD parliamentarian Misheck Bonshe yesterday revealed that the family is surprised at the sympathy being shown by the government, which they failed to show to the deceased when he was suffering.
And UPND vice president Richard Kapita has said chief Chizela of the Kaonde people allegedly received money and a brand new GRZ vehicle in order to strengthen MMD campaigns for the Mufumbwe by-elections.
But chief Chizela refused to discuss the allegations, saying it was not true because he had not been to Lusaka recently.
In an interview, Willies Apoloso said when Bonshe was admitted to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH), only leaders of opposition parties visited him.
“When I heard that he was sick in hospital, I travelled to Lusaka and for the six months Bonshe spent in UTH, I never saw any Cabinet minister but I only saw leaders of the opposition parties and as a family we are surprised that government is trying to be sympathetic today. Is it because of the by-elections or not?” Apoloso asked. “We don’t know but we believe government is supposed to take care of someone when he is alive and we think they condemned him Bonshe to death.”
