General News Police nab suspected killer of Choma Taxi driver
Police in Southern Province have picked up a suspect in line with the murder of Choma taxi driver Emmanuel Mizinga.
 Southern Province Deputy Police Commissioner Godfrey Mwanza confirmed the arrest of the “real suspect”.
“Actually, yesterday itself we continued to do our investigations.We have since managed to pick up one suspect who is currently helping us with investigations,” says Mr.Mwanza.
“We have made one arrest and the investigation is on – going.The two we picked yesterday were helping us with investigations but the one we have arrested now is the real suspect in line with the murder.”

Mr. Mwanza says the suspect will appear in court as soon as all police processes are completed.

Meanwhile, Choma Central Member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa has condemned the murder of Emmanuel Mizinga, a taxi driver and says such criminal activities should never be allowed to happen.

Mr. Mweetwa said police should improve the security system around the district to prevent the loss of lives of people who are making humble efforts to fend for their families through the transport business.

The Parliamentarian has appealed to the Police Command to intensify police patrols as lawlessness may affect the provincial headquarter’s economy.

A Choma taxi driver with a Toyota Platz vehicle registration number AKB 165 was on Saturday morning murdered and his remains dumped near a named lodge near the railway line in town.

The Southern Province Deputy Police Commissioner  confirmed the murder and identified the deceased as Emmanuel Mizinga, 32 of Choma’s Zambia Compound.

Mwanza revealed that the deceased was found with deep cuts on the neck and a knife which is suspected to have been used in the murder was discovered next to his remains.


  1. They won’t name the so called “real suspect ” because it it’s it is a pf cadre

  2. Mweetwa tawakwata amano. How do you say such must not be allowed and expect the police to be in every Taxi as the guys fend for their family? Who allowed it in this case? It is a case where the MP has to say something even when he has nothing to say. Shame on you. Murder is not accidentally done but planned move where those capable of preventing it are put in the picture before it is executed. Allow the Police to be in our bedrooms to stop our wives to kill us when ever they will find it necessary to clear us out of their way. Is it practical bwana MP?

    • @ pink toe mwilafulwa elyo mwasuka fimo fimo as even though you meant to advise the MP, your ire clouded structure of what you wanted to say. Anyhow the MP Mweetwa could have stressed on his appeal for police patrols and at least adding commendation to the police for the ongoing investigations that has netted the suspected murderer of the taxi driver than leaning political.
