“2 Yr Old Glendale Boy’s Death Looks Like Its Not Politically Motivated”
Police Spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba has hinted that preliminary investigations by the police have so far revealed that the death of Professor Lumbe, the 2 year old Glendale boy whose mysterious death was linked to politics by his father, Rambai was not politically motivated.
Addressing journalists in Harare this morning (Tuesday), Senior Assistant Commissioner Charamba said the police was currently seized with the unfortunate incident but they were currently waiting for post mortem results for the case to be concluded.
“Concerning the murder … not murder but unfortunate incident which resulted in the death of the 2 year old Professor Lumbe, from Mazowe, we are still waiting for results from the post mortem.
However, preliminary findings do not point to politically motivated violence as previously claimed by some sections in society. However, as the police we are seized with the matter and we are currently waiting for the post mortem results for us to conclude the matter,” she said.
The late Professor’s father, Rambai claimed that his son was abducted and murdered four weeks ago because he had defected from Zanu-PF to the opposition National People’s Party (NPP).
Lumbe who is the Mazowe North parliamentary candidate for NPP told mourners at his son’s burial that his son, Professor went missing on a Saturday afternoon but was only found dead by some kids harvesting soya beans on Sunday.
“This came as no surprise considering that we are living in a politically-charged environment where I receive a number of threats on my family. There are a number of cases where Zanu PF activists came and threatened me saying I was not a member of Zanu PF anymore, so I didn’t deserve to stay on the land that I was given by Zanu PF.
I was told clearly that my involvement in opposition politics endangers my family… Their warning was straight-forward that I was putting my family in danger and I was supposed to make a choice,” Lumbe told mourners at his son’s funeral.
