Killing an old man on mere allegations without proof.
People still believe that someone can have magical powers to make others insane or disappear?
What a load of rubbish! Do you really think that with all the people having affairs with others people’s partners, stealing and the hatred in this so called christian country, the population would still be 15M+?
There would be a serious reduction in the population of zambia!
Wake up people!
We will soon be catching flights to go into space whilst you are debating on how someone can travel on a broom or bottle top!
Dear friend, ubuloshi (witchcraft) exists. For this reason I have never set foot in Zambia for 30 years now, scared. There are all kinds of wizards and witches. Some specialize in breaking into your house and making love to your wife/husband on your bed while you have been shifted to the floor. These things do exist and the Bible speaks of it: Deuteronomy 18.10-12
I think this journalism in the article above stinks, just where the hell did this ***** go to school? You write one story after another instead of missing three stories all over like this. I’m not reading masalamusi aya anymore.
Kampyongo where are you?Look at the seeds of violence which were sown last season?
