Former AVAP director Bonnie Tembo dies

FORMER Anti-Voter Apathy Project director Bonnie Tembo has died in unexplained circumstances.
He was taken to Lusaka’s Chingwere clinic as a brought-in-dead case.
Police in Lusaka’s Matero area are holding a female, Gwendolyn Chanda, 41, for both her safety and circumstances surrounding the death of Mr Tembo.
Mr Tembo’s daughter Irene said his father’s passing was full of several stories that the family is currently studying.
“I can confirm that my dad passed away on Thursday in the afternoon. We have received overwhelming stories from some members of the public concerning his death,” she said.
Police deputy public relations officer Rae Hamoonga said in a statement yesterday that Mr Tembo was on Thursday travelling from Chipata to Lusaka and that at Luangwa, he sent a text message to Ms Chanda informing her that he was unwell and was coming back to Lusaka.
“When he arrived, Mr Tembo went to her house and found a daughter of Ms Chanda who gave him the keys to the house.  Mr Tembo later went to sleep in the bedroom,” Mr Hamoonga said.
He said that upon reaching the house, Ms Chanda decided to take Mr Tembo to Matero Reference Clinic where he passed on at 13:20 hours.
Mr Tembo is survived by a wife, daughter and son.
