    • Kitwe robberies and unprecedented house break-ins should be made public so that those not yet attacked could take precautionary measures.It would information of massive crime on the kopala is being deliberately surpressed.

    • If you are going to carry a pistol, surely you would use it to defend yourself. Instead, it is stolen with the cash. WTF!
