Allow me space to explain what I witnessed two days ago in Monze. On Sunday 15/12/13, around 20:00hrs our brother in-law passed away at Hilltop Hospital in Lusaka.

He was a teacher in Lusaka. On Monday his relatives decided to take the body to Monze so that they could bury at the farm.

On Wednesday, the man was put to rest. After burial the two families sat down to hear how the death occurred, surprisingly the late brother in-law’s relatives accused our sister of having killed him even when they knew their relative was for some time on life saving drugs.

They went on to say our sister didn’t clean their relative on time and that she didn’t inform them in good time which my sister accepted as a mistake on her part and as relatives we paid K150 to ask for forgiveness but the man’s relative could not accept it.

Surprising among the relatives of this late brother were two catholic nuns and a nurse who were in the fore-front refusing and instigating that our sister killed him. I was very disappointed with this behaviour because one would think he/she has found the beacons of hope and justice in these women of God but that was not the case.

I therefore call upon the Church leadership in Monze to investigate it and bring hope to the widows. Furthermore, this family plans to consult a witch finder to investigate how their brother died but we don’t care because no one tempered with his life.

This kind of behaviour is a shame to the Catholic Church which preaches peace and justice. This ill treatment of our relative has been reported to Monze police.

“When will this end even the beacons of peace and justices are instigating it.”
