Bobi mourns Wameli
Very sad day! Just learnt of the untimely passing of our dear brother and Head of our Legal Team, comrade Wameli Anthony from the U.S. where he’s been admitted for treatment. Details will be provided in due course. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
In June 2021, Wameeli fell ill and was rushed to hospital after complaining of stomach pains, and at some point, it was rumoured that he might have been poisoned due to his political affiliations and human rights activism. By then, His wife, Olive Wameli said then that the lawyer was unable to talk.
The lawyer was a few weeks later in June 2021 flown out of the country to the Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts in the United States of America for further treatment.
He has been the head of the National Unity legal team that deals with thousands of cases tat are politically motivated.
