    THE Police force is still investigating the alleged plot to murder the Deputy Minister for Works, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe.


    On Thursday, the Deputy Director of Criminal Investigation said in Dar es Salaam that covert and overt evidences were now being collected from various individuals and mediums.

    ''We are still gathering evidence and we are also awaiting medical reports to ascertain whether he was poisoned before we respond accordingly,'' he said.

    Dr Mwakyembe was flown to India early this month after suffering from a mysterious skin disease suspected to have emanate from noxious infections.

    The Deputy Minister was reported to be suffering from a skin disease scientifically known as Exfoliative Dermatitis the cause of which was yet to be established.

    Police comments came to light after Mr Mwakyembe claimed in February over the possible plot to kill him and other high profile leaders and some renowned businessmen.

    Dr Mwakyembe had complained that there were plans to kill him, famous businessman, Mr Reginald Mengi and the Minister for Water and Irrigation, Prof Mark Mwandosya.

    Others he had named include the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr Bernard Membe and the Same East Legislator, Ms Anne Malechela.

    Mr Kasala was responding on the questions put forth by journalists to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Said Mwema on Wednesday and promised to provide answers for the question yesterday through his officers.

    ''We call on the members of the public with evidence that can help police to get proof of these allegations to present them to us and we will treat them with confidentiality,'' he said.

    In another development, police have vowed not to bow to a six months ultimatum given by a sect of opposition leaders asking the law enforcer to stop what they have termed as oppression against opposition politicians.

    ''We are guided by rules and regulations and we will not stop doing our work because of politicians' pressures.

    ''In fact we are not even giving heed to their ultimatums,'' Mr Kasala injected.

    Deputy minister for Works, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe

    By Mkinga Mkinga,

    The Citizen Reporter

    Dar es Salaam. Mysteries surrounding the health condition of the deputy minister for Works, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe, took a new twist as police questioned six people.

    The Police launched investigations aiming at establishing whether claims that the deputy Works minister's illness resulted from deliberate poisoning were true.

    Dr Mwakyembe was flown to India about three weeks ago after his health condition deteriorated due to an illness, which was yet to be disclosed neither by him or the doctors treating him.

    The Criminal Investigation Department (CID), an arm of the Police Force, is said to have decided to dig into the widespread rumours claiming that poisoning could be the cause of Dr Mwakyembe's illness.

    Talking to The Citizen on condition of anonymity because he is not the spokesman of the police, a senior police CID officer said at least six people have been questioned so far.

    "Our questioning them does not mean they are suspects, we're just looking for information to help us create the bigger picture and establish whether there is anything worth pursuing in the rumours," said the source.

    The source said that the Police Force has decided not to ignore the rumours especially because, several months back, Dr Mwakyembe had reported to the law enforcement organ of receiving threats over his life.

    He said since April when Dr Mwakyembe reported about the threats, the police has managed to obtain several leads, which he declined to divulge.

    He said the deputy minister gave them a list of people whom he was suspecting, therefore, "making it easy for us to have a starting point".

    The deputy director of Criminal Investigations, Samson Kasala, who told a press conference yesterday at the Police Headquarters in Dar es Salaam about investigations on reports that Dr Mwakyembe's illness resulted from poisoning, confirmed these police activities.

    But he said they would also need scientific proofs to make them conclude categorically that the Kyela Member of Parliament was indeed poisoned.

    "We want to obtain some scientific proofs from the doctors who attended to or are still attending Dr Mwakyembe. Only then shall we be in a position to take our investigations further," Mr Kasala said.

    Mr Kasala said they would also need to question Dr Mwakyembe himself for them to establish the truth of the matter.

    He also said that even though doctors took oaths not to divulge health information to any third parties, the police would look into what the law says when such information is crucial to investigation of a crime.

    Mr Kasala said that other security organs would also be involved as more information is sought after. "We cannot rely on mere words only… after justification from medical doctors we'll be in the better position on how best to continue," he said.

    Dr Mwakyembe was flown to India early this month when his health condition deteriorated following what was reported to be some kind of skin malady.

    Among people who have publicly hinted that Dr Mwakyembe might have been poisoned, who is his close ally, was the minister for East African Cooperation and former National Assembly Speaker, Mr Samuel Sitta.

    Speaking in an interview with a local television station recently, Mr Sitta said he had never seen a person's skin disintegrating in the manner in which Dr Mwakyembe's was doing.

    However, Mr Kasala could not say if Mr Sitta was among those interviewed in the course of the investigations.

    CCM leaders are infamously known for their Kremlin-like tactics of liquidating people who appear to pose a threat on their 'interests'. It has done so to the late Horace Kolimba and same thing later happened to Chacha Wangwe and now they've vainly attempted to eliminate Mwakyembe, thanks God that Pollonium used is said to have already been expired.

    Even so, why did they have to wait this long before considering an inquiry? It entirely sounds derisory and, to me, this investigation is a mere artifice just designed to expiate themselves from their spiteful ways.

    Inatia kichefuchefu. Malalamiko yalitolewa mwezi Februari na mpaka Mwakyembe anakimbizwa India hawa wanaojiita Polisi walikuwa kimya halafu leo bila hata aibu wanaibuka kuongea takataka zao! Ni dhahiri kwamba jeshi letu la Polisi ni vikaragosi vya mafisadi.

    Na kwa bahati mbaya sana kwa wabaya wake hili halitakaa litokee kwa wakati huu. Mwakyembe will live to his full age hili wala si kwa hisia bali uhalisia ili wote wenye mwili wajue kuwa kwa Yesu kuna uzima.
