Masebo’s ex-husband linked to murder of Ruth Mbandu

THE plot thickened in the Ruth Mbandu murder yesterday when police in Lusaka confirmed recording warn-and-caution statements from Lusaka businessman Dick Masebo and his mother Mercy Namonje, according to the government funded and controlled Daily Mail.
The statements were recorded from the duo at Emmasdale Police Station, according to Lusaka Province police chief Solomon Jere who declined to give further details as the probe continues.
Dr Jere said an undisclosed number of members of Mr Masebo’s family have been questioned and released.
The police chief said after interrogations, “Mr Masebo and the rest of the family are free…it is not true that we detained them. We recorded warn-and-caution statements from them and they left.”
Mr Masebo and his mother are expected to report back to police sometime this week as police close in on the suspects, according to Dr Jere.
Dr Jere said the police, “will not rest” until all the missing pieces to the puzzle fit and individuals involved in Ruth’s murder are booked.
Ruth’s murder has sucked in the most unlikely people with police recently recording a warn-and-caution statement from the dead girl’s mother, Victoria.
The former NIPA student was murdered on July 13 under unclear circumstances that has led police to arrest five people, including the deceased’s uncle and a lay preacher to help with investigations.
Three of them have already been charged with murder, pending court appearance as soon as the police consolidate their case.
