Naked man escapes lynching by mob

Rural News Naked man escapes lynching by mob

An unknown man in Chibombo District last night escaped a possible mob justice after he was caught naked near John Chinena Market.

A ZANIS reporter who accompanied the police and Chibombo Central Ward Councillor Robby Malindima to the scene, found a mob of people from the market and the nearby village questioning the man about where he had come from.

The man, who at the time had been given some clothes by some good Samaritans, could not however explain clearly where he had come from and how he had found himself in such a situation.

According to an eye witness, the man was spotted standing by the roadside near the market around 21 hours by some passersby.

The eye witness narrated that people did realize at first that the man was naked as he was standing in the darkness.

The eye witness said people only became aware that the man was not wearing anything after the headlights from the oncoming vehicle illuminated the place where he was standing.

The eye witness further said upon realising that he had been noticed the man tried to run away but was pursued by a mob.

And area ward councillor Robby Malindima said he was called by some informers at the market about the incident which he also reported to the police immediately.

Mr Malindima said it was difficult to establish the particulars of the man and what had transpired at the time because he could not speak clearly despite the mob not beating him.

Meanwhile, Mr Malindima commended the police for the quick response which he said had saved the man from possible lynching.

The Police have since arrested the man.

    • For people who live in a place called Chinena, why are they afraid of nudity! The man is from a nudist colony headed by Miles Sampa

  1. With such a name of the area how can you surely not expect to find naked people ? The guy was in the right place where his physiological needs could be taken care of…ha ha ha.On a serious note maybe the guy is just mentally disturbed or he has dementia.This habit of beating up naked people because of associating it with witchcraft must end.

    • Yes a naked man in John Chinena is not surprising.He thought he will find a chinena.Ki ki ki

    • Hahahaha ati John who? That place of watermelons
      The naked guy is just mad, that’s why he couldn’t even comprehend anything.

  2. YES! it is a crime to expose ur nakedness in public. in Fact u should thank the people for not beating him up, twasanta mwane..

  3. One wonders the sources of all these accidents in that area. They should question him properly, he could have been wanting to drink blood from accident victims.

  4. It is not allowed to be naked in public but the people have no right to beat up anybody found naked. People should instead help such people as nobody knows what is wrong with such a person. People must never take the law into their own hands.

  5. There should question him a lot of people have died in that from road accidents.What was he doing in the nite naked on the road side?Police please do your work and see if he not a stankist.
