Chakussanga, host of a weekly radio public affairs call-in program, was shot to death in his home. His money, cell phone and car were untouched. He had recently been focusing his radio show on “political and electoral education” and told friends he had received threatening phone calls and text messages. Chakussanga was 32 and left a wife and four children, the youngest born on the day he was killed.
