Tortoise threatens man
Another bizzare incident has occured on the Copperbelt in which a man has received a letter delivered by a tortoise threatening him for failing to settle a debt.
In September, a Kitwe resident received letters from NAKONDE delivered by a tortoise and a dove asking him to pay K50 million he owed.
This time the incident involves a Ndola resident, Mumena Mushinge, who allegedly owes a Tanzanian national, Sumba Wanga K26.9 million.
The tortoise carrying the letter written in Swahili was found at Mr. Mushinge’s residence on President Avenue Thursday morning.
The letter from a Mr. Jean Marie has given Mr. Mushinge three days to pay the money or face serious consequences, which include death.
A ZNBC news team that rushed to Ndola found scores of residents trying to catch a glimpse of the tortoise at the central police station.
The tortoise wrapped in white cloth had a suspected human borne tied on its back, and some beads.
Police had a tough time controlling the crowd which was demanding to see the tortoise.
