Suspected poisonous mushroom claim three lives

Rural News Suspected poisonous mushroom claim three lives

Three people of the same family have died in Kalabo District Hospital after eating suspected poisonous mushrooms.

Officer –in-Charge David Kabongo who confirmed the development to ZANIS explained that a six-year-old child was brought in dead while his mother died few hours later.

Dr Kabongo further explained that the father to the six year old boy died on the third day of his being admitted.

Dr. Kabongo however, said he could not tell whether or not the trio died of suspected poisonous mushrooms because the hospital did not have the right equipment to test the type of poison.

He said they were merely informed by the people that brought them to the hospital that they had consumed poisonous mushrooms.

Dr. Kabongo however, said he could not tell whether or not the trio died of suspected poisonous mushrooms because the hospital did not have the right equipment to test the type of poison.

The trio includes Pelekelo Namboo 29,Likezo Liswaniso 28 and Likezo Liswaniso Jr 6 all of Lueti area.

The family of the deceased persons have not yet claimed the bodies causing space shortages as the mortuary only had one functioning fridge and can only accommodate six bodies.

The development has left the local authority with no option but to place a notice which if no one comes forward to claim the bodies at the end of 14 days the local authority will have to dispose of the bodies.

Acting Council Secretary who is also Deputy Director of Works Kenneth Sampa confirmed having notified the public about the three bodies.

  1. This rain season has been the worst in a while! I looked for but never saw any Tente. Ifyanafyabene fyekafyeke no tente entire Kabwe Kapiri road

  2. Do you know the tente you were looking for? How can you say the whole rain season there was no tente on Kabwe-Kapiri road, when the stuff was plenty in December and January? Next time ask for Tente when looking for Tente!

  3. Lovers of the mushroom called Tente will tell you that it is bountiful from December through January then partially disappears only to re-appear once again as a winding up in March.
