Relatives of slain graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) corporate affairs manager Issah Njauju have asked the state to speed up investigations on the murder of their relation a year ago.
Ibrahim Njauju, spokesperson of the family said the slow pace of the investigations into the murder of the number three strongman at ACB worries the family.
The family is the latest to push for quick investigations into the murder which shocked the nation.
“We are urging the state to speed up the investigations so that we know the truth, we know who killed our brother and for what reason,” said Ibrahim.
He said the family still mourns Issah whom he said was very helpful in the family and always sought peace whenever there was trouble.
Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said the law enforcers are working round the clock to find the killers of Njauju.
He said the family and the nation should be patient as investigations can sometimes take long.
Njauju was found dead on July 4 2015 with his body half-buried near Lilongwe River and his Toyota Hilux double-cabin vehicle burnt to ashes behind the presidential villas in Lilongwe.
