Police in Kasama district of Northern Province have launched man hunt for two suspected armed robbers who are alleged to have shot dead a Mporokoso businessman yesterday .

Northern Province Police Commissioner, Mary Chikwanda, has confirmed the incident and identified the deceased businessman as James Chilambe who was in his forties.

Ms Chikwanda explained that Mr Chilambe was on his business trip to Kasama town on his canter truck when he met his fated near Zacharia Chanda on Mporokoso road where a gang of four armed men shot him in the head and died instantly.

She narrated that the robbers, driving an unregistered car, had earlier over taken the deceased and later stage a plot that they had a break down yet they just wanted to kill Mr Chilambe.

The police Commissioner said so far two of the suspected robbers have been arrested and are in police custody in Luwingu while the other one is in Kasama police custody respectively.

Kasama District has recorded two businessmen being shot at and one being gruesomely murdered by an angrily mob in a week’s time.



  1. The news is bad and very sad. Someone is working their lungs out to make a living then these criminals want it on the easy. Ba mwana chiwa. Lock them away for the rest of their natural lives.


  3. “….Kasama District has recorded two businessmen being shot at and one being gruesomely murdered by an angrily mob in a week’s time…..” This statement is confusing. Can someone clarify what it means please?

  4. Criminality has increased with the ascendancy of Sata into power. Not surprising what with evil symbols like snakes on the table!

  5. Why are you complaining about the grammar? But that’s what the police reported and wrote in their official reports. It is very clear and straight forward ZP language, you former Zambians naimwe!?
