Mujuru’s death: Focus on Amai Mujuru first.

Mujuru’s death: Focus on Amai Mujuru first.
Published: 21 January 2012 (1699 Views)
It was refreshing to hear Amai Mujuru calling for a thorough probe for her late husband's death and now to see her on the frontlines of seeking justice by taking the lead in questioning witnesses. While I cannot share the same pain for her loss, I find our focus as a country on the last few hours of the late Mujuru's life to be misplaced. In the modern world, when a husband dies, the person of interest is the wife. They must make sure her hands are clean.

As it stands, we are told the late Mujuru left his home in Chispite; his matrimonial home. If this is true, then it is most likely the last person who saw him before he left was his wife or one of his immediate family members. Obviously he said something before he departed and as a nation we need to know what he said. I find it funny that his next day's plans are coming from a beer hall when he was at his house prior to the beer hall visit.

I feel the inquiry should have focused on Amai Mujuru first and she must have answered questions similar to these:

When was the last time she saw or spoke to her husband?
What did they talk about?
Did they argue about something?
Where did he leave the keys to the house and why?
Was he in a hurry when he left the house?
Does she have the keys he left in Harare or someone else has them?
Does she know if he kept the house key separate from the car keys?
Did he drive by himself or he had a driver?
If he drove himself, how often did he do this?
Does she know if he had a girlfriend?
Did he show any signs of stress/distress? Did he report that anything was bothering him?
What time did she receive the call informing her about the fire?
Who informed her?
Where was she when she received the call about the fire?
How did she get to the farm?
How long did it take her to get to the farm?
Why was he at the farm and why was she not with him?

I understand the pain the Mujuru family is going through but to hear that the keys that were supposedly left in Harare were eventually found in Mujuru's own bedroom complicates everything. Yes the police could have been negligent but how did the keys that were left in Harare suddenly turn up in Mujuru's bedroom in Beatrice?

I am sure Amai Mujuru will gladly take the challenge to answer some basic questions so the country can move on. As it stands, there is too much on the the General's table and anything on that table could have caused his death; murder, suicide, or accident. I don't suspect foul play on Mujuru's family but I just think it is important for them to clear the air.
