The continuous out-burst in the media by late Robert Chasowa’s associate Black Moses is giving Inspector General of Police Peter Mukitho sleepless nights and has since pleaded for truce, Nyasa Times can reveal.
Black Moses has been a police target after the authorities managed to eliminate Chasowa in a bid to conceal Mukitho’s underground activities in relation to last year’s civil society’s demonstrations.
Chasowa, who was until his death a Polytechnic student, was found dead on the college’s campus and it was later revealed he was killed.
In an exclusive interview with Nyasa Times, Black Moses revealed that Mukitho has been on his knees pleading to stop giving any information to the media in relationship to Chasowa’s death.
“He has been calling pleading ‘Achimwene cheMoses chonde tatiyeni tikumane kuti tikambirane bwino bwino” ( My brother Moses can we please at least meet and resolve these issues). I know what is in his mind. He wants to bribe me, yes he wants to give me money so that I remain silent but that will not happened,” Moses revealed.
According to Black Moses, Mukitho last called him on Wednesday night asking for a meeting to resolve issues surrounding his arrest and other matters in relation to Chasowa’s saga.
Moses, who is President of Youth, Freedom and Democracy (YFD), challenged he would not allow the truth to be corrupted by the authorities late alone Mukitho, arguing it would be hard to forgive “them” following the killing of Chasowa and other people that were killed during the last year’s July 21 national demonstrations.
“It was around 10pm when he called. But why is he not coming out and tell the nation the truth about what happened to my friend Chasowa… And what about those people that were killed by police in Mzuzu during the demonstrations? There are a lot of questions to be answered than asking me to come into terms with them,” challenged Moses.
Mukitho and some other top police officers have been implicated in Chasowa’s death. According to earlier revelations, Black Moses and Chasowa were hired by Mukitho to infiltrate and defuse plans by civil society groupings to hold another demonstration in September last year.
Chasowa was later murdered after he threatened to divulge information to the public when Mukitho failed to pay them their agreed fees amounting to K10 million.
Currently, the Police are under fire from both local and international human rights groupings demanding clear explanation on the Chasowa’s death.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
