CARE International Country director Mark Vander vort’s Zambian wife Aggie has appealed to all women and non-governmental organizations in the country to come to her aid after a dispute in her marital home which resulted in her husband poisoning her.
Events that she told the Zambianstar are that on the fateful day Mrs. Vander Vort went home with a friend and found a cake bought by her husband which she alleged that was poisoned by her husband.
She said one of her children warned her not to eat the cake because it was poisoned. “Mum don’t eat that cake I saw dad putting poison on that cake”. The daughter narrated how their dad had prevented the three kids from eating the cake.
This caused alarm by the 34-year-old mother, and prompted her to report the matter to the Victim Support Unity(VSU) at Central Police were the Director Tresford Kasale has since confirmed that the Cake was taken to the University Teaching Hospital for sample testing for poison traces.
VSU director said in a telephone interview with Zambianstar that UTH results indicated that the cake contained traces of poison and the matter is before the director of public prosecution Mutembo Nchito awaiting further instructions.
He explained that the couple has since being advised to go to court and settle the matter because they were other accusations.
Meanwhile Mrs. Vander Vort has accused the police of being bias because the husband bought them airtime right in her face and drove his car the day she went to report to the police. She said it was difficult to fight a man who was a financially giant and white. She complained that if the husband was Zambian he could be in jail at this moment; now that he is white the law will drag its feet. She has since asked the church to pray for her.
