POLICE in Ndola have arrested People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president George Mpombo’s 17-year-old son for allegedly shooting his lover to death with a pistol when he learnt that she was pregnant.

The accused is alleged to have later beheaded the 17-year-old girl before dumping the head in a bush.

Police spokesperson Charity Chanda confirmed the incident in an interview yesterday and identified the deceased as Ruth Phiri of Pamodzi Township in Ndola.

Mrs Chanda said police have also picked three of the suspect’s accomplices identified as Kennedy Mumba, 21, Brian Kachinga, 26, and a 16-year-old boy after he disclosed that they aided the crime.

She said Mr Mpombo’s son, whose name has been withheld, admitted having allegedly shot his lover after she told him that she was pregnant by him and that he buried her body in Chiwala before dumping her head in a bush near Mulungushi bus station within Ndola.

“We have exhumed a headless body of a 17-year-old teenager of Pamodzi Township in Ndola. This girl is believed to have been pregnant by Mpombo’s son. So, when she went to tell him that she was pregnant for him, he got upset and grabbed a pistol from the house which he used to shoot her,” Mrs Chanda said.

It is alleged that “after shooting her, he cut off her head, which he concealed in a plastic bag before dumping it in the bush, while he buried her body in Chiwala area in Masaiti”.

“Unfortunately, the body is in a decomposed state, but we have picked up both the body and head,” Mrs Chanda said.

She also said Mr Mpombo’s son allegedly led police to the scenes of crime.

The boy has been charged with murder and will appear in court soon.

Meanwhile, two people have died while six others are nursing serious injuries in Isoka District Hospital after they were involved in a road traffic accident on the Isoka-Muyombe road.

Muchinga Province police commissioner Auxensio Daka said the accident happened when a light truck Mitsubishi Canter collided with a Toyota Noah which was being driven by Noah Sikanyika.

Mr Daka identified one of the deceased as Sydney Munthali, 34. The second victim is not yet identified.
The driver of the truck is on the run.

In another incident, a 22 -year- old woman of Kwacha in Kitwe has died after falling off a moving motor vehicle.

Copperbelt commissioner of police Charity Katanga said Mary Musonda died on the spot on Wednesday on Enos Chomba Avenue after she tried to change positions while on board a moving vehicle.

Ms Musonda, who was seated at the back of a van, a Toyota Hilux, which was being driven by John Kaseya, 41, suffered head injuries.

    • So sad. Violent video games and violent movies are to blame. I hope the boy doesn’t receive presidential pardon and later appointed “Ambassador against Gender-Based Violent Crimes.”

    • There is no such thing as, “IT JUST HAPPENS” – just shows how SPLOIT the brat is – TOTALLY NO RESPECT FOR LIFE – HE HAS COMMITTED TWO MURDERS – the mother & the unborn child!!
      It is cases such as this one, that Death sentence is sometimes called for!! Why should he be a burden on society when jailed for life( rather 2 life sentences!!)??

  4. due to improved technology, too movies and computer games are being accessed by the young ones and they think they can do those things in reality. The boy and his accomplices must have been playing Grand Theft Auto (GTA) of late.

  7. This didn’t have to happen, I feel sorry for everyone involved. So many lives have been destroyed. I pray to God that he gives the girls family comfort and hope in trying to understand what’s going on for it is well in Jesus name.
    The other thing I want to say is as parents let us talk to our children as they’re growing about everything that they’re experiencing let us also create an environment were our kids come to us first when something is wrong in life no matter what the situation is. Let us also teach our children from a very young age about Gods commandments because in them is the best foundation of respect and love. Teach our kids to read the book of proverbs so they can learn wisdom.
    Let us tell them about sex and the consequences, protection and abstinence. Imagine what a…

  8. If this is true, let the young man face the wrath of law squarely. That is weird. In what mood were they to start chopping off the head of a dead woman, a girlfriend for for that matter? Even when you no longer hold any love for someone, not to that extent .

  12. Court, we don’t want to hear that the charge has been changed into attempted murder or attempted man slaughter when evidence is there. All the evidence that the court may need in this case is available, so I see no reason why the case will keep on adjourning until finally it will be stale.

WITH THE ACCIDENT VICTIM ONE WONDERS WHETHER IT’S TIME CARRYING PEOPLE ON OPEN TRUCKS IS OUTLAWED. “Ms Musonda, who was seated at the back of a van…”. THIS WASN’T A VAN. IT WAS AN OPEN OR PICKUP TRUCK.

  15. Attempted murder how, when there’s a dead body? Well. I agree with Gara @18. This Mpombo must have been on some drug. Hard substance abuse is a silent scourge that’s ravaging our youth & authorities are looking the other way. Ndola is a hub of drug use probably fuelled by the somali community. Our DEC is busy fighting political battles while we are losing a generation to drugs.

    • He failed to handle the pressure from his parents to excel in his studies hence opening up to the devil who took advantage of his desperation, but as christians, lets just pray for both families. Both families have lost a child here. The other family has lost their daughter through murder and Mr Mpombos family too has lost their son because that boy is going in for many years if not for the rest of his life and all the dreams they had for their boy are shuttered now. Mr. and Mrs. Mpondo will go down to their graves as sad parents. Let us also pray for the boy to repent of his sin and find Jesus in his hearts. There is no sin that Jesus can’t forgive moreover the Lord does not even delight in the death of sinners.

      The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.

  19. Yaba these kids are just problematic, Mr Mpombo must be arrested for exposing his pistol to his underage child. It is sad that young people at such tender age can commit such crimes. This is not the Zambia we grew up and it is clear children are being exposed to dangerous things that have serious repercussions. I blame put the blame on the parent who did not keep his weapon safely.

  21. Comment: Watching too much of tv has caused the young man to do that.
    In these movies and Tv programs that are been broadcasted today Fornication, Adultery, Murder, Drankardness and Nudity has been leveled to things you can just normally do and get away with!! Oh boy not in reality…..
    Be careful with what you allow your eyes to see and what you allow your ears to hear for such things shape a human being!!

    • @ The Equalist,
      You are spot on. Here in the UK some courts have now started naming and shaming the so-called under age murderers. A spineless teenager so barbaric to the extent of beheading an already dead victim!

  25. Heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the family, I watched the lamenting mother on Muvi TV main news two days back and I feel so sad now that after hearing her lamentations, I was sure the girl was simply abducted and will be found, but this?

    For that little devil to lead the Police to crime scenes, it is clear that he is the criminal behind the evil and barbaric act, let the law therefore take its fullest course. I even get surprised that some people can be advocating for the abolishment of death sentence, a dog like this deserves a firing squad, beheading or hanging until every trace of blood in him is erased from life history.

  30. Mushota, we all make mistakes! Killing someone deliberately is planned! There is no excuse at all for taking someone’s life. The culprits should face the harshest sentences. Mpombo’s son is a delinquent for whatever reasons. There is a lack of respect for life here. A 17 year old is able to understand that sleeping with a girl can end in pregnancy. I hope thisgirlwas not under age!
    What has happened to Zambians? Everything is taken casually! We also have foreigners killing Zambians yet nothing is done about it!

    • It’s like the African mind reverts to its natural savage state when stress pushes through past a level where ‘civilising’ education and natural cultural nature cross.

      But Murder is worldwide. The human mind can cross thresholds. Crushing Poverty, history of enslavement of a people contributes.

  33. The human mind is a treasure trove. What was he thinking dropping the head off near the bus station? He’d buried the body. Did he carry in in a plastic shopper bag? Well, maybe a psychological malfunction of kinds proving, 17 years is too young to be having Sex. The consequences may prove too difficult to handled. God accept the poor girl to his light. May her family find peace in love they have for each other. Ooooh Gives you goosebumps.

  38. It is very possible that this boy is not killing for the first time, he must have done it before and unfortunately he was not caught. I mean were did he get all that courage to do such a sane thing, killing two people and slaughtering over a petty issue. Otherwise he is not 5 years old so he was 100% sure of his actions and he deserves to rot in prison. Let God himself forgive whilst he faces his charges.

In Jesus name. Let him be jailed. SGBV issues is bot allowed.
