Thousands of Malawians led by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera on Sunday paid their last respect to slain former nurse, Lucy Kadzamira, sister to mama Tamanda Kadadzamira airhostess for Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda.
Kadzamira was killed by her suspected garden boy identified as Arafat Gonani who is current in the hands of police.
The suspect also went away with vehicle Mazda Demio Registration number DZ 4606 white in colour.
Kadzamira’s funeral in Dedza brought together leaders of different political parties despite the ongoing political squabbles over the outcome of the May 21 polls.
Some of the notable faces at the funeral were, Joyce Banda of People’s Party (PP), Minister of Homeland Security Nicholas Dausi, former member of Dedza East Constituency Juliana Lunguzi and other MCP top officials were present.
The body of Kadzamira was found in a decomposed state at her house in Lilongwe following the arrest of the garden boy.
It is said that the suspect offered Detective Sub Inspector Chinsanje of Nsalu Police Unit a motor vehicle Mazda Demio Registration number DZ 4606 white in colour for sell but the officer got suspicious of the transaction and he immediately arrested Arafat Gonani.
“The Anti motor vehicle theft Unit at Central Region Police Headquarters was informed of the matter so that it is investigated further,” reads in part the police report.
Added the report: “The Anti Motor Vehicle Theft Unit Officers visited the Directorate of Road Traffic and Safety Services which according to their records, shows the motor vehicle is owned by Ms Lucy Kadzamira and her proxy is Mr Collings Kaliza.”
Meanwhile the police are hunting for other suspects.
