ruth mbandu complexity

Dear President Lungu

As family of late Ruth Mbandu, we are still mourning her untimely death due to cruelty. She was only 19 years when she died without any meaningful explanation from authorities. At a time when there was headway, we were informed that one of the government official, at the time of late Michael Sata’s administration, was involved in the cruel murder of our daughter.

But soon after the revelations were made public by a Mr. Solomon Jere who was then under the Police Service, there was no revelation as to who the said government official was. In no time, Solomon Jere was hastily and suspiciously sent into Foreign Service without giving him chance to finish what he started in the case of the death of our daughter. We are now offering this background because we want to conceptualize the intention of this open letter.

We have heard all sorts of insinuation and accusations pointing to Miles Sampa as having a hand in the death of Ruth. We don’t know whether this is true or not but we ask you Mr. President to facilitate the release of the report that Mr. Solomon Jere made regarding the said government official who was involved into the killing of Ruth.

Yes, the case may have been closed in court but our memories on Ruth’s death will never be closed. We still mourn and still ask questions because despite the number of years that have passed, we still fail to move on with a fact that Ruth is gone.

Clearly, the death of Ruth was ritual and sad. Her face was peeled off and her eyes were taken off. From our own observation, Ruth was murdered by someone for some purpose. We are also aware that she was raped at the time of her death, although this fact has not been publicized. We are also aware that she was pregnant at the time of her death.

All these are details that have never been offered to us openly but given to the family through sources at the police. Now that the case is long closed, we would want you our humble leader to help with release of the investigation report which Solomon Jere announced pointing to someone in government.

As you go round to market your candidate in the coming Lusaka Mayoral elections, please do remember that our family is at pains seeing that you are busy propping up an individual whose name is embedded into the controversy of the death of our daughter.

We hope our letter will receive considerable response.
Martin Mbandu
Family Spokesperson

  1. The truth may be hidden from us mortal men but our God who sees & knows everything & who is in control of everything knows the people & their motive behind the death of this young lovely & innocent lady. May the guilty over what the perpetrators did be with them until they confess & seek first the families & God’s forgiveness in this clearly rutual murder

  2. UPND bushilu muleke. You write in your stupid article that you don’t who this senior government official is and yet you are again mention Miles Sampa as the guilty one. Desperation will kill you. It’s all because you want to discredit him.

    • YOU IDIOT DO YOU HOW IT FEELS TO LOSE A YOUNG CHILD, MAY OUR GOD VISIT YOU SO THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO LOSE A YOUNG GIRL FULL OF DREAMS TO RUTHLESS BANDITS WHO CUT HER LIFE SHORT

  3. After 2021, we shall request for a DNA of the fetus after exhuming and we shall get the DNA of miles sampa to conclude the investigation, Kilometers your Miles are up.
