Today I went to visit Ellen Kadango at her residence. She is a victim of political violence. MCP cadres wanted to burn her and colleagues in her car until some good Samaritans pulled them out of the burning vehicle. This was on Election Day in Salima.
Her ordeal is very disturbing and traumatic. She and her colleagues were kept prisoner at Salima MCP Offices for close to 2 hours where she overheard her captors deciding whether to kill them or turn them over to the MDF. I salute those who stood for good and removed her from the car. We may differ politically, but it need not come to this.
I call upon the administration to bring to book all perpetrators of violence during and after the election. To Ellen – they can break your bones but not your spirit! I am wishing you a speedy recovery.
I make one promise to you, I will not rest until your story and those of others who have been victims of organized political violence get justice.
