Civil Society Organisations have asked the parliamentary committees probing the maize scandal to investigate the mysterious death of Admarc secretary, George Bakuwa who died in Zambia when Admarc was in the process of purchasing maize.
Making the call, Human rights defender, Bright Kampaundi said that Bapuwa might have been killed.
“He died at the center of these maize deals and although it is said that high blood pressure claimed his life, it seems there is more that we do not know about his death.
“The parliamentary committees must make sure they investigate his death so that we know what really happened,” he said.
Kampaundi added that Bapuwa knew secrets in the deal and that might have led to his death.
“In this country people who have the knowledge of government secret dealings are often murdered and the same might apply to Bapuwa,” he added.
Recently, Parliamentary committees probing the infamous maizegate left for Zambia to conclude investigations in the maize scandal.
Speaking in an interview chairperson of the inquiry committee, Joseph Chidanti Malaunga said that they did not leave on Sunday as planned because they were waiting for clearance from the Zambian government to start off.
“We were supposed to leave on Sunday but the Zambian government did not give us a go ahead then to visit Zambia for the investigations.
“Right now we have received a confirmation from the Zambian embassy that we can go to Zambia and conduct the investigation, so we are leaving on Tuesday,” he said.
Malunga said they would meet officials from both the Zambian Corperation Federation (ZCF) and Kaloswe.
“We want to hear their side of the story since we have concluded our investigations in Malawi. We will also meet officials from the Zambian government,” he said.
