The Garry Nkombo puzzle is finally being pieced together with police recording a warn and caution statement from the Mazabuka Central lawmaker over the 2013 politically publicized murder of Henry Chanda.
Chanda was killed in 2013 during the politically charged Livingstone by-election when he was pushed off a moving car.
Nkombo shockingly resigned his Chief Whip position in parliament last week raising eyebrows on the genesis of his decision.
The decision may have been prompted by the imminent arrest over the four year old murder case that never fully got concluded.
LUSAKA, 17TH SEPTEMBER, 2018 – We have recorded a Warn and Caution statement from Mr Garry Nkombo, UPND Member of Parliament for Mazubuka Constituency in relation to the death of Harry Chanda which happened on 25th February, 2013 in Livingstone of Southern Province.
One person identified as Henry Harry Lungu of Libuyu, Livingstone was arrested in connection with the subject offence and was jointly charged with unknown persons for Manslaughter, contrary to section 199 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia and was convicted on 09th March 2017 and is serving a six year sentence with hard labour.
We continued with the investigations so as to link other people who could have participated in the commission of the offence hence the summoning Mr Garry Nkombo who has been Warned and Cautioned for Manslaughter. Investigations have continued.
