Three Chinese nationals from the same family have been gruesomely murdered and thousand of Kwacha is suspected to have been stolen from the family resident in Kitwe’s Garnatone Township.

Their assailants used axes, iron bars and stones to kill victims, in a murder that has shocked many residents.

Three other Chinese Nationals from the same family are nursing injuries after being hacked in the same attack.

Police suspect two Zambian nationals to be behind the murders and have launched a manhunt for them.

The Chinese nationals are proprietors of Golden Kings Investments Company Limited a firm involved in the manufacture of roofing sheets and other materials.

Both Copperbelt Police Commissioner Joyce Kasosa and Kitwe District Commissioner Chanda Kabwe confirmed the brutal killings.

Police have identified the two men on the run as Norman Kachingwe and John Mwanza.

Kachingwe and Mwanza were employees of Golden Kings for close to two years.

Police have further disclosed that the two went away with colossal sums of money.

A check by a ZNBC News team at Golden Kings Investments Company Limited situated at plot 35 Thorite Street has discovered that a safe was also ransacked.

Police have identified the three Chinese Nationals as Wang Gang, Wang Wei and Wang You whose ages are still being ascertained.

Kitwe District Commissioner Chanda Kabwe said preliminary police investigations indicate that the three were killed between 20.00 and 23.00 hours last night.

Mr. Kabwe who visited the private business premises in the presence of police officers has since sent a message of condolences to the Chinese Ambassador to Zambia.

He said police are closing in on the suspects and have assured the Nation that justice will prevail.

Tony Shi a member of the Chinese business community in Zambia is urging police on the Copperbelt to assure their safety.

And the future of 70 employees of Golden Kings Investments Company Limited hangs in the balance after the killings of the owners of the Chinese run firm.

    • This is horrible!!!
      Isn’t that the President of PF in Kitwe this week? Does residents even have respect for their president? If I were Lungu, I will rather just stay in Woodlands than deal with those Jerabos. He needs fire his officials for not cleaning up streets before presidential official moving of office to Kitwe.

    • Rubbish!
      The suspected criminals were employed by the very people they have murdered.

      Learn to do your politics away from tragedies like this one.
