Unpaid govt retiree jumps from Findeco house

 

A 62-year-old Government pensioner  has jumped to his death from the 16th floor of Findeco House after the PF  government failed to pay his K16, 000 pension again.

The man was picked from the floor with his head smashed.

Police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo said the police are hiding the identity of the former government worker until his next of kin is informed. was found with a smashed head.

“A male adult aged 62 of unknown residence jumped from one of the floors at findeco house and fell on a balcony and died instantly. He was found with a smashed head, fructured legs and hands,” Katongo said.

There is no money to pay retirees because Edgar Lungu is using all the money to build flats and casinos all over Lusaka.

    If the man was 62 it means he retired in 2010 at 55.I retired in 2011 and I got my pension in 2012 ECL was not president then.How did Watchdog come to the conclusion that that the man commited suicide because of none payment of his pension? Usually people who commit suicide leave a note was one found on him?

      That is what happens when people vote on tribal lines and not on merit.

    Instead of killing myself, I would first kill one of those that is responsible for my plight. That way I think I would have made a greater and positive impact.

    Lungu should just resign becoz instead of paying that man he stole his money to build those flats and paid thugs to damage HH’S house. The man menomeno is a satanist

    The pf government is garbage. We need a Zambian government that would manage to pay its retirees without fail. Shame on you pf for spending taxpayers’ money sending useless police thugs to bash HH’s house without any apparent reason than paying the retirees. Lungu’s government pushed Zambian peace into a dustbin.

    Let me tell u about CK. CK was just a scrup metal dealler who sold all the metals in Luanshya Mine. Now he is quetionong ECL who can get a Loan from any Bank in Zambia. If CK is clean like KK’s hand carchief, let him tell the Nation the source of his wealth. He can only sheet those who does’nt know him.

      It is really disturbing and heart breaking to read some of the comments concerning the unfortunate death.I personally do not support in any way anyone committing suicide.We as Zambians who call ourselves Christaians must sympathize with his family.
      In Zambia,being a retiree is equal to destitution and poverty.That is why people have now engaged themselves in officaial corruption right from plot 1 to the cleaner on the street.I wonder what type of Zambia are our children going to find in 50 years when 99 % of people reading this story will be dead.Yes! don’t make fun of this situation because every body is going to die and will leave all the corruptly gained riches behind.
