Mujuru Frustrated By Police Investigations Over Husband Death

The police are making a second round of probe to try and establish the cause of Mujuru’s death.

Addressing sugarcane farmers at Mkwasine Estates in Masvingo last Friday Mujuru said  “I am still in the dark about how exactly my husband died and the Mujuru family is still waiting for an explanation on how he died. I am still in the dark like all of you who also want to know what exactly happened to him’’ she is quoted in The Herald as saying.

She further says Zimbabweans did not expect the late freedom fighter to die that way.

“I do not think that you expected him to go that way. We are now waiting for an explanation so that we can be free’’ she said.

Mujuru said she was humbled by people who are paying respect for the late retired general whose suspicious death united Zimbabweans in mourning him when he was buried at the national shrine.

However, her remarks come as media reports at the weekend indicated that police have lunched a second round of investigations into the late Mujuru death with strong suspicion that he could have died before the fire gutted his farmhouse.

Police commissioner general Augustine Chihuri said a report was compiled and submitted to the courts for an inquest.

Media reports at the weekend claim that police are now making another round of investigations amid suspicion that former army general could have died before the fire started hence implicitly suggesting there was  ‘’human hand behind’’.

It is further suggested that there were conflicting statements from the 23 witnesses interviewed among them farm workers, police officers manning his farm and other security details.

The late Mujuru was burnt beyond recognition at his Beatrice farm in August which raised eyebrows.

Mujuru’s death is reported to have further divided Zanu-PF as some unconfirmed reports link his death to the succession battle.
