Family Of Vendor Shot To Death Demands $5 Million From ZRP After Receiving Only $200 For Burial

The family of Annatoria Kaseke, a Harare vendor who died after being reportedly shot in the chest and abdomen by Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) officers has demanded $5 million as compensation for her death. Kaseke who is said to have been pregnant was shot and killed by ZRP officers who were trying to enforce a directive to ban commuter omnibuses from entering the CBD. Police Commissioner General Godwin Matanga, apologised for the deaths and his organisation donated $200 to the families of the victims.

Gift Nyandoro who is representing the victims wrote to Minister of Home Affairs Obert Mpofu demanding $5 million compensation. Part of his letter reads:

Therefore, we are instructed to demand on behalf of our client that the d-ceased’s surviving spouse, children and dependants be compensated to the tune of $5 million within seven days from the date of demand, failure of which our client will be left with no option but to take appropriate legal action as remedy for the same.

We believe this will be necessary for such a legal suit will also be on a punitive scale against your office.

….Justice demands that the surviving spouse, children and dependents of the deceased be compensated for justice delayed is justice denied.
