  1. Gosh, who in their rightful mind would want to slaughter a defenceless kid sure. If i caught anyone like that i could honnestly kill without thinking twice

  2. THIS IS SICKENING GUESS THESE MUST BE RITUAL KILLERS WHO SALE HUMAN PARTS FOR MEDICINAL USE. PLIZ SUCH THINGS DONT WORK AND SPARE LIVES OF THE INNOCENT. i TRUST OUR COPS THEY WILL CATCH UP WITH THE CULPRITS

  3. Bakamushi. They have bad manners. What ritual killing sure? They live in poverty in these villages, if there was any magical powers anywhere couldn’t they have had a better life. They need to be educated on these issues before they hurt more children.

  4. MAY GOD INTERVENE TO SEE THESE MEN BROUGHT TO BOOK…THIS NIGHT I WILL PRAY FOR THE ARREST OF THESE MURDERERS AND GOD SHALL ANSWER..LET US JOIN HANDS IN PRAYER BRETHREN..THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE

  5. I am seriously waiting for PF/UPND pact members to say this is the presidents fault……somehow someone somewhere will link this to the failures of the current government to govern. Anyone? Someone? PF? UPND? anyone at all??

  6. first and foremost the govt in this case MMD should no only screen people or investors comin into zambia but also those stupid nigerian films.i havent been to zed in a while but i hear the nigerian way of thinkin has really caught on, these are the consquences.these people have extreme bad manners and obviously people there are buyin into st u pidness as usaul.This is just beginning, the country has high unemployment rates leadin to survival of the fittest.This govt needs to implement policies o improve the lives of the ordinary people.bear in mind this big business in south africa and will lead to more cases. get well soon little one

  7. I’ve always wondered how it feels like to cut off another man’s balls. So if these devils are caught please let me know, I might just finally get to rip off someones’ sperm factory with my bare hands.

  8. IT IS SAD STORY TO HEAR,WHO ON EARTH WOULD WANT TO KILL A 4 YEAR OLD CHILD? THIS GUYS ARE DANGEROUS TO SMALL CHILDREN . PARENTS MUST GUARD THERE CHILDREN WELL UNTIL THESE CULPRITS ARE CAUGHT..HOPE THE POLICE MOVES IN QUICKLY AND APPREHAND THESE CULPRITS BEFORE THEY STRIKE AT ANOTHER INNOCENT CHILD. MAY THE ALL MIGHTY HEAL THE INJURED BOY QUICKLY AAMEEN .

  9. Shame for this act why a young powerless and defenseless child? Please people in the villages start thinking with your heads not attacking innocent ones. This act should never have happened if people are well educated or hungry for money , in anyway the govt has contributed to many evil acts in Zambia. Lets all send our prayers to the 4 yr old and wish him a quick recovery from the wounds.

  10. My God….I hope that poor child survives with no memories….awful story…shall say prayers for the little one. The criminals must surely be known to other villagers….hopfully they’ll soon know what life with hard labour means.
    Get better little one..you are loved.

  11. Sad news. Why attack an innocent child. I hope the police apprehend the culprits quickly.

  12. those animals just need to be sent the police unite C5 and spread with bullets they dnt even deserve jail time now lets hear the civil society speak against execution of such fools the only way to put an end to this is to hang such sadists and reaffirm the once true meaning of mukobeko prison

  13. Hah! am speechless………What kind of desperation is that where you even follow kids at their homes,so sad.kids will need 24hrs police security,Lets have that human resource that go wasted waiting for the tourist to go launch an auto shop.

  14. good god versus evil. If God exists and he is both willing and able to stop evil why doesn’t he stop it? my best guess is we’re praying to empty space.

  15. God heal this innocent child and protect all those who may be in danger so that this does not happen again. So sad that a once healthy child will now remain with scars and sad memories. Punish those animals who caused this.

  16. #22 its a sad occurrence but if God really has the power to heal the child as you are wishi ing then I’m sure he also had the power to stop the event from happening. Why did he choose not to? the unfortunate fact which we hacve to come to terms with is that there is no God.

  17. @24 Kapelwa indeed there is God and our God is alive and watching over us and this poor child ,thats why justice will be seen, if there was no God this child may have even died but thank God it survived,I believe everything happens for a reason so its not that God could not prevent this from happening, theres a reason why this happened, maybe to bring the culprits to book so that they do not repeat their act etc etc…..plenty of reasons.

  18. Gosh, Zambians!!! God this God that… #21Kapelwa is right, Zedians u pray to an imaginary saviour who is never there when you’re in need. What a waste of time!!

  19. ……..or maybe God is a Zedian, he’s never on time. Always seems to come in too late for any help, you’d be better off hiring your own bodyguards if you need protection.
