Father axes his son to death for damaging a TV set

General News Father axes his son to death for damaging a TV set


A 64-year-old man of Mpatamato Township in Luanshya district yesterday axed his son to death for allegedly damaging a television set.

Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga identified the deceased as Henry Chirwa of house number 382/ 24 in Mpatamato Township.

Ms. Katanga said the matter was reported to the police by the brother to the deceased, Stephen Chirwa 36, who alleged that his elder brother had been murdered by his father Jaston Chirwa of the same address, using an axe.

She explained that the deceased sustained deep wounds on the neck, ribs and left leg.

The deceased’s body is lying in Roan general hospital.

The Copperbelt Police commander added that Jaston Chirwa has since been arrested and police have instituted investigations into the


  1. That man needs to be allocated a place in the mental block. Breaking a TV should never amount to death, you can easily replace the it unlike lost life that will never be replaced. Man and material things things, not a good combination. These are very extreme actions that should never be considered!

    • These PF! At 38 & 36 years old men, still staying with their retired Luanshya Miner. PF not providing jobs to these 38year olds. Sitting home watching Kambwili on TV, he ends up smashing the hell out the TV.
      And the father can’t tolerate… it.. pa kasembe!!

    • @Nostradamus

      Your conclusion is completely out of line, no wonder Zambia is in the S.hit it is in. People like you!

    • Those are the Chishimba Kambwili supporters in Mpatamato constituency. Ifintu nafibipa mu Copperbelt.

  2. Saulosi, it was not even a flat screen tv. It was a hunch back! Ki Ki Ki Ki Ki
    Anyway, may the soul of the departed RIP.

  3. What was someone older than 36 still doing in the father’s house? This is how the clueless drunk has run down this country. The sooner we see his backside the better.

  4. If the younger brother is 36, then what was the dead doing at his father’s palace? Those are the consequences of overstaying in a parent’s home and you start bullying him over his hard earned TV. Release the old man. Its not a must that we should sympathize with the dead even when they died due to their foolishness.
