GOVERNMENT has assured the people of George, Lilanda and Zingalume townships in Lusaka that security personnel are working round the clock to ensure the areas are safe and secure.

On Thursday a man was murdered in Zingalume Township by unknown people. The ears, heart and private parts that were removed from the body were later discovered dumped at a named church.

Three weeks ago, four people were found dead in George Township with missing ears and private parts.

Information and Broadcasting Services Minister Chishimba Kambwili has warned that criminals will not be allowed to commit cruel acts with impunity.

Mr Kambwili warned people behind the recent spate of killings in Lusaka that the law would catch up with them so that they answer for their barbaric and heartless acts.

He has called on members of the public to support the police in their crackdown on the criminals behind the spate of suspected ritual murders in which seven people have been killed in less than a month.

“The people behind this lawlessness live in the community and Government, therefore, urges residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious elements to the police”, Mr Kambwili said.

Meanwhile, Youth in Action for Sustainable Development (YASD) has condemned the brutal killing of youths in suspected ritual killings.

YASD programme manager Zebedy Lukwesa said his organisation was saddened by the continued killings on the youths in Lusaka.

Mr Lukwesa said it was unacceptable for the nation to be experiencing barbaric behaviours as it Zambia is a Christian nation.

  1. Why are ritual murders common before elections in African countries?Typical example is Tanzania, just recently before their elections, there was a spate of murders involving body parts harvest of albinos.Unfortunately there are still people who believe in black magic for luck charms.As if grade 12 is not a deterrent enough to improve the litracy of this people aspiring for offices.How will a d#ck or ear of a body multiply votes? Amazing don’t we all agree that we Africans are at the bottom of the gene pool?

  2. I admire the PF government for being “DETERMINED” in almost doing something to achieve everything for the people of Zambia! How many times and for how long is the citizenry going to live listening to this “DETERMINED?”

  3. …you don’t handle such matters with kid gloves….I heard the other day police appealing to members of the public to come forward and report anyone they may suspect…and that the info shall be treated with high confidentiality…that’s underrating the issue at hand….the police are supposed to come up with a considerable price tag(say K50,000) for anyone who can offer info to apprehend and convict these cruel bandits…..
