FAMILY of slain UPND cadre Grazer Mutapa continues to wait in agony for closure in the gruesome killing of their relative, as the Lusaka High Court adjourned judgment in the case and did not set a new date.
Some family members mumbled in displeasure as the court announced that the judgment in the murder of the UPND cadre was not ready, and so could not be delivered yesterday.
They complained that the adjournment was despite the court having set the judgment day almost one month ago.
“We spend a lot of money coming here hoping that we will get a conclusion to the case involving our late relative, and today was supposed to be some sort of closure for the family, but we still go back home without a conclusion,” one of Mutapa’s relatives said.
They charged that the unending court proceedings were both financially and emotionally draining for the family members who have kept going to the courts seeking a conclusion in the matter.
Four suspects accused of murdering Mutapa were committed to the High Court for trial in the matter.
Mwewa Yapanshi, 24, Billy Semani Kansenya, 25, Moses Lungu, 31, and Maxson Phiri appeared in the High Court before Justice Gertrude Chawatama on murder charges.
The quartet was committed to the High Court for the gruesome murder of Matapa on February 23, 2015 in Mtendere, and judgment in the matter was being awaited.
