Kitwe police arrest two more murder suspects

General News Kitwe police arrest two more murder suspects

POLICE in Kitwe have arrested two more suspects in connection with the attacks and murders that have rocked the city in the past two weeks.

This brings the number of suspects arrested so far to five.
Copperbelt Province police commanding officer, Antonneil Mutentwa, confirmed the arrest of the two suspects in an interview in Kitwe yesterday.

Mr Mutentwa said Reuben Nyirongo, 24, who was arrested at the weekend, led the police to the arrest of the two.

Nyirongo informed the police that he was in the company of the arrested suspects at the time a Kitwe resident, Gilbert Zimba, was attacked.

He identified the two as Lameck Chomba, 28, of house number 433 in Kitwe’s Old Ndeke Township, and Christopher Siwale, 31, of house number 680 in the same area.

Mr Mutentwa said Siwale and Chomba were picked up around 14:30 hours on Tuesday from Chingola where Zesco had engaged them in some casual work.

The police received information that Chomba and Siwale were among the 1,000 casual workers Zesco had contracted to work on some power lines in Chingola.

They were found with a purse, jersey, and two cell phones.
One of the phones belonged to Mr Zimba.

The first suspect was arrested last week on Thursday in Kalulushi, while two others were arrested in Kitwe’s Ndeke Village Township some days later.

And bandits on Tuesday night snatched K4 million from a 68-year-old Ndola resident.
Police said the incident happened near Kamfinsa Mission on the Ndola-Kitwe dual carriageway as the victim was driving back to Ndola.

Police explained that a car that had been trailing the victim suddenly parked next to him and the bandits produced a gun as they demanded for money.

Police identified the victim as Gorge Mwansa of house number CH 852, Chifubu Township.

In Chipata, a three-year-old boy of Mthiransembe Township drowned in a well on Tuesday evening.

Eastern Province police chief, Emlyn Mushondwa, confirmed this in Chipata yesterday and identified the boy as Alick Banda.

“A three year old child fell into a well in Mthiransembe. Mr Frank Banda of House number G38 reported the accident to police on Tuesday evening and said that it happened around 18:00 hours,” Mr Mushondwa said.

  1. Punish those chaps who have been killing their friends!
    if possible tie big Chains on their legs and make them sweep town centres without brooms but with their bair hands!


    Chop off their ears and one full hand from each of them!!

  2. Please custrate those baggers because they don’t have human rights.What those bustards have are criminal rights hence no police officer or citizen would be in trouble with the law if you do according to prof.Taxation’s suggestion.

  3. whats going on in kitwe,lately we had scandals of those baggers stealing copper,robbers and now killers.kitwe is full of idiol youths,who desire to stash more cash without a job.It will do more good if the police can make others learn from these culprits ,otherwise it will be worse,I suggest mukobeko should be reintroduced,an eye for an eye is what can save us from these terminators.
    tie there balls to a track and do 180km/hr
