  1. THESE CHINESE INVESTERS MUST NOT TREAT ZAMBIAN WORKERS ON ZAMBIAN SOIL,THEY CAN DO THAT IN CHINA NOT HERE OTHERWISE THEY RISK THEMSELVESN GETTING KILLED .TIT FOR TAT ZAMBIANS WILL REACT WHICH WILL BE VERY UNFORTUNATE.CHINESE SHOULD LEARN TO TREAT ZAMBIANS PROPERLY

  2. And yet you do not prosecute the same Chinese when they shoot Zambians and when their unsafe factories blow to pieces Zambian workers. Zambia is very ripe for a revolution!

  3. #s 1 AND 2, TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT. THERE ARE BETTER WAYS FOR NEGOTIATING FOR PAY RISE. BUT NOT KILLING A PERSON. THE MAN MUST BE TRIED AND ONCE FOUND GUILTY, HE MUST BE GIVEN A BEFITTING SENTENCE TO DETER WOULD BE OFFENDERS.

  4. ZAMBIA IS A VERY CALM COUNTRY AND SHOULD REMAIN SO- ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THE ECONOMY SEEMS TO BE HEADING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. MURDER CASES SHOULD ALMOST BE ELIMINATED AS IT USED TO BE A FEW DECADES AGO. FEW DECADES AGO MURDER WAS NEWS, AND I MEAN NEWS. MEANING IT WAS RARE.

  5. MALIKOPO YOU ARE SPOT ON,THESE CHINESE SHOULD BE TREATED IN THE SAME WAY AS THEY TREAT OUR POOR ZAMBIANS WORKERS.THEY SHOULD NOT TREAT OUR WORKERS LIKE SLAVES BUT I DONT ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO KILL OTHERS BUT SOMETHING THESE THINGS HAPPENS WHEN ONES HEART BOILS SO THE CHINESE SHOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY ABUSE A ZAMBIAN WORKER OTHERWISE THINGS LIKE THIS IS BOUND TO HAPPEN.COME ONE CHINESE BUCKLE UP OR PACK UP AND GO BACK TO CHINA BEFOREW MORE ZAMBIANS TAKES LAW IN THEIR OWN HANDS.

  6. if they have now arrested the “murderer”. who are those that they earler arrested for the same case? someone enlighten me here.

  7. China is a thrid rate country though it has MONEY and the Chinese have never been a superior race anywhere in history.
    So whay do they mistreat Zambians???

    Tit for Tat or tat for tit.

  8. this was a pure accident, there was no murder committed. A good lawyer can easily win this case. A trolley was pushed and it accidentally hit the chinaman!

  9. The police must merely inform us that they have arrested a suspect and refrain from declaring people guilty before they are brought before court.Ruth Mbandu’s “murderers” are still appearing for mention despite the police suggesting that they have a wealth of evidence against them.
