MBABANE – Investigations into the death of businessman Victor Gamedze continue to intensify as a top lawyer is said to have recorded a statement with the police on his knowledge about the murder of the football administrator.

It should be noted that the attorney is not a suspect in the matter but was merely sharing information with the police on what he knows about the murder.

Information gathered from reliable sources was that the lawyer had tried to warn Gamedze that there were people who wanted to end his life but the businessman did not believe him.
This lawyer cannot be named because of the sensitivity of the case.

Apparently, the lawyer had been specific that the assassin wanted to kill him on Sunday, the day he was eventually gunned down.
The man of the law is said to have called Gamedze on his mobile phone and informed him that there were people who were planning to end his life and the businessman laughed it off.
When recording his statement with the police, the lawyer mentioned the names of the people who had shared such information with him.

However, their names cannot be revealed as this may jeopardise police investigations.
The lawyer was early this week called to the Mbabane Police Station after the law enforcers got word that he had some information concerning the murder.

He then recorded the statement in secret for his own protection from the suspects, as the police believe there are still more arrests to be made in connection with the murder.
“The lawyer was informed a few days before the murder about the plot and he thought it was a joke. The person who told him then allegedly repeated the same information again before the day of the murder. He stated that he was told it was supposed to happen at Somhlolo National Stadium and this was when he knew that the people were serious. Fearing for his life, he could not go in person to Gamedze to inform him as the people who informed him would know since Gamedze was being followed,” the source stated.

After recording the statement, the lawyer was released.
