About 30 relatives of Moses Simuwelu, the PF cadre who was murdered by PF thugs are planning to camp at State house for a hunger strike to compel ailing dictator Michael Sata to respond to their request for compensation.
Moses Simuwelu was killed last year during the PF intra party violence following the endorsement of Sata for 2016 presidency by then defence minister Geoffrey Mwamba alias GBM.
According to a story in the Daily Nation newspaper, the family has written to both PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba and Sata demanding for K150,000 compensation but the duo have ignored them and have reportedly been protecting the criminals who murdered Simuwelu.
Uncle to the deceased, Lackson Simuwelu accused the PF leadership of interfering with investigations by threatening the police officers who were handling the investigations with dismissals.
To distort evidence and complicate investigations, the late Simuwelu’s friends who picked him from home have also reportedly been displaced or sent to go and live in far flung areas and the family does not know where they are.
An earlier postmortem report doctored by the state revealed that Simuwelu died of natural causes but a second one done by Dr. Neil Nkanza contradicted it.
This is the second high profile murder case involving PF cadres that Sata has been shielding, the other one is that of NIPA student Ruth Mbandu who was murdered inside Matero stadium, housing PF MP Miles Sampa’s football team.
Sata and police Inspector general Stella Libongani and her deputy Solomon Jere have the full report naming the culprits who gruesomely murdered Mbandu but they have kept quiet while the murderers are freely walking the streets and some enjoying the privileges of parliament.
