Police does ‘suulia’ on Castro

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

It was a major let down last Monday when throughout the weekend the

police had promised a big media conference to announce the latest

issue of the disappearance of Castro Destroyer and his lady friend

Janet Bandu.

The media interaction was planned for Monday. When the time came, and

the media was gathered at the venue with the hope of getting juicy

angles to the two months old saga of the missing music icon, it ended

up with no twist to the tale whatsoever.

Saying it was a disappointing news conference would be stating the

obvious. What the police said at the conference was what has been

known by the public for over two months.

In essence, they said the police were still looking for the two people

and had not closed the case until they were found dead or alive or

until after seven years if they are still not found.

This was already known to the public. The media and by extension the

public were expectant of getting any new information about the

situation from the police only to be apprised with rehashed

information they already knew about.

Perhaps, as some have intimated, what might have precipitated this

planned interaction by the police has got to do with the assertions

made by a lawyer last week that he had information of the whereabouts

of Castro, and he would make it known at the end of September.

The lawyer, Maurice Ampaw’s assertions and subsequent stance that he

would only come out with his information at the end of the month was

condemned by many.

Some had said he should have volunteered whatever information to

police rather than in the manner he was doing it.

So the police met with the press and told them what they already know

and then in the evening when he was called again, the lawyer said he

would present whatever information he had to the police and won’t

reveal it at the end of September anymore.

Meanwhile, as this charade goes on, two families are grieving over the

fact that they have still not heard from or seen their relatives two

months after they went missing at Ada during a jet skiing session at

Aqua Safari.

Hopefully, the police will increase their efforts in searching for the

two and hopefully whatever loaded gun of information Mr. Ampaw has

will be enough to aid the police to shoot down their inability to look

for and find the artiste and his friend.
