A motor cyclist has been lynched and beaten to death by an angry mob in Mwinilunga district. This is after the motorcyclist hit an eight-year-old boy who died on the spot.

North Western Province Deputy Commissioner of Police, Bonny Kapeso, confirmed the incident that happened on Wednesday around 17.00 hours.

Mr Kapeso said the motorcyclist, who has not been identified and riding an unregistered motorcycle, hit the boy of Kaloza village in chief Sailunga’s area of Mwinilunga.

He said the boy identified as Alex Kamuza, aged eight, died on the spot.

Mr KLapeso said both the bodies of the boy and the motorcyclist are lying in Mwinilunga District Hospital mortuary.

In a related development, a Grade Six pupil of Kamapanda Basic School died of head injuries after falling from a speeding vehicle in Kabompo district.

    Why? Don’t people know the meaning of accident? I dont think this motorcyclist wanted to kill the young boy.

    I dont know what it will take to expunge the third world mentality.

    This incredible need to kill should be fought agaisnt in Zambia. This was an accident. If this young man was riding recklessly on an unregistered cycle he should have been reprimanded for it, NOT killed. This is a one of the measures of a civilised society.

    Sata needs to tell Zambians in Mwinilunga that an accident is an accident. No one should be killed over it. I agree with Nubian Pricess, Voice of Reason and others. Please

    Its not the first time that such dangerous driving has happened in that area rwesulting into deaths. Thugs are relocating to that province and behaving like they own everybody. Offenders in the past were let free after simple detention because the law has no teeth. Now people always adapt to events and behave in a way deemed appropriate for themselves. Killing of such a driver will send a warning to the excited i.d.iots mushrooming the province that they need to respect human beings. If the public is not protected by the law they will protect themselves. tit for tat. pride comes before a fall. Please do it again so they will learn to respect people of that marvelous province.

      Disappointed by your comment, very stupid indeed. Do you know that .. that could have been you? Or your father.. or brother..? Think before you comment mwe..

      Yes… D… It could have been my FATHER, or BROTHER, who was killed by the terrorist who ran over that poor boy.

      The only solution to Drunk Driving (Or Reckless Motorcyclists) is to KILL the offenders. Only REPEAT OFFENDERS (but never caught) would DEFEND a MURDERER!

    :-?we Zambians made lots of noises when a Zambian truck driver was beaten to death in Congo after killing a funeral mourner with his truck. Aren’t we doing the same thing that the Congolese did? Where is our Zambian civility?

    Innocent Congolese were beaten up and their goods looted by Zambians saying that Congolese are devils,animals… These Congolese were innocent but they suffered for the mistake committed by other people in Congo. Don’t rush in judging others, look at how Zambians are behaving toward their own brother. It was an accident why did those people kill their colleagues.

    THIS IS THE SAME AS WHAT HAPPENED IN CONGO WHEN A TRICK DRIVE ACCIDENTALLY RAN OVER A PERSON AND WAS BURNT ALIVE. DON’T GET ME WRONG. I KNOW HITTING TO DEATH A CHILD IS TERRIBLY BAD. BUT, INSTANCE JUSTICE BY PEOPLE WHO INTENTIONALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS A SERIOUS CRIMINAL OFFENSE AND IT MUST BE BROUGHT TO A STOP IN ZAMBIA. WHILE IT WAS BAD LOSING A CHILD THE MAN WAS STILL INNOCENT AS HE WAS NOT TRIED FOR CARELESS DRIVING RESULTING INTO SOMEONE’S BELOVED CHILD’S DEATH.

    When people in west read this they just think these guys are savages, of course people in west are savages in their own ways, a terrible thing happened but instant justice is wrong.

    Heeee Zambians are savages my goodness. During Chiluba we never heard of this, I think people look at images of their leaders. Chiluba had the Miyanda (humble), Silwambas (clean-smart), VJ (cool), Ali Amir (attorney General).
    No people on TV see: Sata, GMB, Chishimba Kambwili, Willie Nsanda.. let me stop here to avoid scaring people.

    too bad for both child and motor cyclist.people are tired of these acidents which can be avoided. penalties for those who cause accidents which can be avoided is too linient in our country. me too would have beaten him to near death if he had knocked my son. but i would not do the Nigerian style of klling and burning the 4 students who stole a laptop as seen on yutube.

    Cyclits and drivers are recless, they do not give courtess to pedestrians. That boy was too young and small, the cyclist should have been careful. I don’t know what to say but these drivers are recless.
