A 95 year woman of Kapiri-Mposhi has been brutally murdered while her grandson has been seriously injured by people who accused the old woman of practising witchcraft.
The old woman’s body with three deep cuts on the head was later dumped in a bush.
The 95-year old has been identified as Lukumbi Balaka of Mukonchi.
Central Province Commissioner of Police, Joyce Kasosa said in Kabwe yesterday that a sharp instrument was used in stabbing the woman by people who have since fled Mukonchi. The woman’s grandson managed to escape with serious injuries.
The grisly attack happened on Tuesday this week.
Ms Kasosa said this was the second attack on the woman and that police were on the ground investigating the matter.
