Late Mr Buleya Lule’s wife has, through her lawyer, written the Attorney General (AG) Chikosa Silungwe asking him to reconsider the government’s position on her K250 million compensation following the death of her husband in the hands of the Police.
Late Buleya Lule died in February, 2019 in the hands of the Police as he was arrested following the suspicious death of one 14-year old Goodson Fanizo, a boy with albinism in Dedza.
Following the results of an autopsy that revealed that late Lule died due to electrocution, his wife, through her lawyer, George Jivason Kadzipatike, sued the DPP led government for a compensation, but the efforts yielded no fruits.
Over a year later, Mrs Lule, through the lawyer, has asked the government to reconsider its position on the matter.
Confirming the development, AG, Dr Chikosa Silungwe, has said his office has indeed received the letter and they are going to make their position on the matter soon.
Twelve Police officers including acting Commissioner of Police for Central Region, Evalista Chisale, are now in Police custody for allegedly being involved in the death of Buleya Lule.
