Zambian Wife, Maid, Nabbed in Connection With Murder Of Businessman Mervin Kaufman

A Doctor  At Nchanga  South Mine Hospital  Is Said to   Have Connived  To lie About Cause  of Death of Mervin Kaufman
A DOCTOR at Nchanga South Mine Hospital is said to have connived with the wife of Mervin Kaufman to write on the death certificate that Mr Kaufman had died of Pneumonia when he was actually taken to the hospital already dead.
Mr Kaufmna the proprietor of both Kauftech and Cartek died on November 24, 2012.
Police sources have told The Independent Observer that the body of Mr Kaufman was found with seven cuts and it seems he could have been killed at home.
The cuts were; broken right rib, three deep cuts at the back of the head, broken nose, cut on the lower left eye-borne and another cut on the upper right eye-borne.
The source said the purpose of exhuming the body was to ascertain if there was any foul play and the suspected foul play was poisoning.
But after opening the brain, the Russian pathologist who has been in the industry for the past 20 year said the six injuries on the head and the broken rib were the cause of Mr Kaufman’s death and not pneumonia.
The pathologist was clear that according to brain communication (that was after the brain was opened) the manhood was cut after Mr Kaufman had already died.
In further clues to link to the wife was that in what had never happened for many years, the wife of Mr Kaufman, Peggy Meleka and her young sister Emily Meleka went privately to Nchanga South Hospital mortuary and took the body to Ambassador St Anna’s for embalming without the knowledge of anyone.
“This does not happen in Zambia where women without the accompaniment of men would transport a body of person except in cases of still babies.
“The embalmer who has been in the business for over 20 years said he had never been threatened in his life like the way Mr Kaufman’s wife did to him. He was told only to embalm the face and never to go beyond and if he did she would sue him and finish him off,” he said.
He said Mr Kaufman’s body was never washed before burial and after exhuming we discovered that the inner clothes had a special seal which nobody could open unless the family was informed.
The source said the manhood of Mr Kaufman could have been cut between Nchnaga South Hospital and Kitwe. It seems the manhood was pulled first, before being cut because what just remained was a hole and the whole shaft was taken out.
According to police clues the investigators started questioning the female domestic work Helen popularly known as Bana Luncky who was living at Musenga farming area after Mr Kaufman had died.
Helen was reported to have been paid more than six times her salary soon after the incidence.
After questioning police officers advised her never to inform her boss of the discussion they had but Helen called her boss and informed her that police officers were pursing her.
That made her as an accomplice in the matter.
Ms Kaufman then rushed to Musenga, picked Helen and went to hide her at one of the places along Solwezi.
Zambian Wife, Maid Nabbed in Connection With Murder Of Businessman Mervin Kaufman
POLICE in Chingola have arrested three people in connection with the sadden death of Mervin Kaufman the proprietor of both Kauftech and Cartek.
Those arrested include his second wife, his female domestic worker and the young sister to his second wife.
Mr Kaufman the great rider and motor bike manufacturer, died in December last year in what was then alleged to have been pneumonia resulting from his long distance rides from  Zambia to South Africa and back.
According to the investigations made by The Independent Observer, Mr Kaufman’s first wife had suspicions of foul play on her ex-husband; this was after some close friends to Mr Kaufman had alerted her about that possibility.
She then reported the matter to police and asked for exhumation of the body which was buried in Kabwe.
It is reported that the second wife was also taken to Kabwe to show police officers where Mr Kaufam had been buried for autopsy investigations.
Upon reaching the burial site in Kabwe, she initially showed police officers the place which every relative had known as Mr Kaufam burial site.
“But to the amazement of the investigators after exhuming the coffin, the body was missing. After probing the woman, she then took the police officers to the new place where she had reburied Mr Kaufman.
“After exhuming the body they discovered that private parts were missing together with the heart. Police have since intensified investigations and they are leaving no stone unturned.
“Police officers have realised that they are dealing with a very sophisticated cartel. This has made the Copperbelt Commissioner to get the docket from Chingola to Ndola and she has since placed highly trained investigators to be on top of things,” he said.
The source said one of the business executive in Chingola working at a named firm,  opposite Mulonga water and Sewerage Company had bought the body parts for suspected ritual purposes.
And to ensure that no sharing of clues in court, police have detained the trio in three different remand custodies, the young sister is alleged to be remanded in Solwezi, the domestic worker is in one of the police stations in Ndola while the suspected master minder is reported to be at Ndola Central police station.

    It is interesting how people are rushing to call Peggy names. This story is inconsistent. What happened to being innocent till proven guilty?
    I am surprised the issue of the family moving the body is a big thing, What if Mr.Kaufman did not have relatives close by to do that? How was the body moved from South Hospital to Ambassador St Anna’s? The whole story is not adding up.

    Let the law take its course.

    Take this story to the people drafting the constitution so that it is reference material as they debate the Death Penalty Clause. I have been reading about some excited NGOs opposing the same. In Africa, we need the death penalty. Balumendo this could have been you, your brother, your uncle or your father. Elo nokupaupa bane tucefyeko.

    Mervin at one time repaired my vehicle he was very very good with his works sad that such a bank if knowledge/skill and professionalism can be slaughtered like that.

    NB: People believe and practice what they see I say so because this whole thing is like an episode from the Nigerian movies that have flooded the Zambian homes.
    If you analyse the same movies SIX things stand out and these are MURDER, SEX, WITCHCRAFT, SATANISIM ,TOP CLASS CRIME & GETTING RICH QUICKLY AT ALL COST.
    All the above bring about moral corruption why entertain it.

    Guys we have to act by eliminating one of the root causes in this case the BAN THE NIGERIAN MOVIES totally from our homes.

    Our POLICE are very professional and GOD fearing they will get to the bottom of this issue and justice will prevail.

    My his soul rest in peace.
