NANCY SIAME, Lusaka
MINISTER of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has urged members of the public to stop commenting on the arrest of Chilanga member of Parliament Keith Mukata and his wife Charmaime Musonda.
Mr Kampyongo says people should leave the matter to the police to investigate it.
The minister told journalists yesterday that it is regrettable that the law-maker is in that kind of a situation but that it is not right for people to be making up stories surrounding his arrest.
“Police are going to advise on what will follow. It’s therefore important that people stop speculating and give space to the police to do their work,” he said.
And police spokesperson Esther Katongo said a post-mortem has been conducted on Namakau Kwenda, the security guard who was allegedly shot dead by Mr Mukata and his wife.
Ms Katongo, however, said that the post-mortem results have not yet been released to her.
Mr Mukata and his wife were picked after a shooting incident on Saturday at the legislator’s law firm in Rhodes Park, Lusaka.
Mr Kwenda, who was manning the premises, was shot in the chest and died instantly.
Meanwhile, Mr Kampyongo has commended law enforcement officers for ensuring that the country was incident-free during the visit of Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe.
