Widow to late ZAF Flight Sergeant Mark Choongwa breaks down during burial
Widow to late ZAF Flight Sergeant Mark Choongwa breaks down during burial

The Family of slain Zambia Air Force Flight Sergeant Mark Nchimunya Choongwa has vowed not to rest until justice prevails.

Sergeant Choongwa who died over the weekend was laid to rest on Wednesday at Leopards Hill Memorial Park after a solemn send-off Church service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross attended by hundreds of people.

He died whilst in police custody at Woodlands Police but the Police Command has heaped the blame on detainees claiming they beat him up after he became unruly.

Police also attempted to falsify documents to show that he died in a road accident but the family became after discovering that the vehicle he was driving on the fateful but minimal damage.

The police later change its position and wrote another document which showed intense beating as the cause of death.

Brother to the deceased Reverend Chilala Choongwa told Reporters at Leopards Hill Memorial Park that the family is determined to get to the bottom of the matter.

Reverend Choongwa also revealed that preliminary findings from the post-mortem shows that his younger brother sustained a broken spin and bled profusely from the spine which led to his death.

He said it is clear that Sergeant Choongwa was beaten using Sjamboks or very sharp object.

And speaking at the Church service at Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Cross which was attended by ZAF Acting Deputy Commander Brigadier General Kapotwe Chintu, Warrant Officer Reverend Wigan Mwape says the Air Force’s resistance to revenge Sergeant Choongwa’s death is not a sign of weakness but maturity, respect for God, rule of law and human rights.

Reverend Mwape, in his sermon said life was a sanctity that needed to be protected.

“Our resistance to revenge flight sergeant Choongwa’s death is not a sign of weakness but a sign of maturity, respect of God, rule of law and human rights. Therefore, I concur with the Head of State that we appeal to powers that be to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to book without fear or favour,” Rev Mwape said.

“His death may sound like there is a misunderstanding between our colleagues (Zambia Police) and us but we have a very good working relationship. But in each service and in every community, there are always wrong seeds. I’m therefore confident that God, who never slumbers, will deal with culprits where the long arm of the law fails to reach.”

Reverend Choongwa says his brother’s soul will not rest until justice is meted on the person who took his life. 

And Acting Deputy Air Force Commander Brigadier General Kapotwe Chintu has appealed to the family to remain calm and allow the law to take its course.

Brigadier General Chintu says there is need to be patient and allow the law to be exhausted in order for justice to be attained concerning the death of Flight Sergeant Choongwa.

Meanwhile, Military sources have revealed that ZAF personnel are angered by the killing of Sergeant Choongwa.
“It’s only that military personnel are not allowed to speak to the media, otherwise we have information on the people behind the killing of our colleague. People in our circle are angry,” the sources said.

“We know that police officers were planning to write a report purporting that he was involved in a road accident. But the Air Force insisted that the post-mortem be done at Maina Soko Military Hospital instead of the University Teaching Hospital. The post-mortem was done at Maina Soko and it was found that he was beaten with Sjamboks.”

Flight Sergeant Choongwa, 34 is survived by a wife, Esther, and two daughters.

    • This death has now been politicized and that is why you see a lot of ZAF officers running like headless chickens. WHY because Mr Lungu talked about the death of this officer. Yes it is sad that the officer has died due to our lack of thinking because we Zambians praise to see somebody being beaten until something like this happen that is when we kind of try to show crocodile tears. Had this guy been alive and well after police brutality, we would all be happy to see a man being kicked by the police. Had this same response being done in the previous brutalities by police especially on citizens of this country, this killing would not have happened. Time and again people have called on Mr Lungu to tame/leash his police but seems like he has unleashed the police brutality on his voters the…

      If this is true then the Police must be taken to task! No, inmate goes in with pangas or metal bars in the cells! Please see this case to it’s logical conclusion. Police sometimes get too overzealous when forcing confessions from suspects, very unprofessional indeed! It should be a Police Service and NOT FORCE bwana Kanganja. I think a lot needs to be done at that School in Lilayi. You cannot have a course that is shorter than a woman’s gestation period (9 months). Six months someone graduates, what do they learn, how to slap or sprint/run? Sivintu nikisi!

    • Very true 1.9 komboni: I remember having a simple accident where i hit into the car in front of me. The one I hit wasn’t even so worried but the cop at Kabwata wanted to book me for DANGEROUS DRIVING!! Imagine the unprofessionalism! It took a senior officer who objected and i was booked for careless driving and insurance took care of everything. These police officers need a serious upgrade in both personnel and the training skills they receive.

    • I hate the new culture in Zambia of blaming the victims. Somebody can seriously say that a person was killed because he was unruly? Really? Over a vehicle accident? Mapenzi was similarly killed for participating in a demonstration. The same idyots are saying that LAZ should be destroyed because Linda Kasonde is against PF. It is as if Zambians are cursed with poor quality thinking.

    Politics aside what happened is really a very sad episode, the family should get justice for the sad, and very violent death of this young man who had so much promise.
    First of all what has happened to the same police that were on duty? Have they been arrested yet? Ba Lsk times please update!

    • And imagine 2020, even if the ZAF officer was a bit hostile (which I strongly doubt he was), why didn’t they contact the Military Police (who are the rightful people to deal with military issues and personnel, not ZP who are suppose to deal with civilians) and just restrain him by sitting him at the reception not holding cells? They were not suppose to beat him to death. Justice for the family, those officers should be dealt with firmly.

    • @ 2020vision,
      The people that were also found in the cell who police purport beat the ZAF officer should also be separated and detained in different locations probably guard rooms and not police cells. An independent commission to investigate what led to the death must be constituted. Meanwhile a civil suit must be filed against government!

      I can’t help imagine how the country and its citizens will be assured of safety if institutions that are supposed to protect and provide security let trivialities of “uniform politics” drive a wedge between them in their well defined professional roles!

  6. The death of Sergeant Choongwa thru ZPS beatings should be blamed on Lungu who as Commander-In-Chief gave orders to the IG to infiltrate poorly trained PF Cadres into ZPS and other govt Institutions.Lungu is not only a Criminal himself but a Person who believes and stands for violence and lawlessness. Lungu does not respect the Rule of Law,Human Rights, Good Governance etc. Lungu should be made to account for spilling the blood of Mapenzi Chibulo, a PF Supporter who was shot dead by Police in his bed in Kitwe, a UPND Supporter shot and wounded by the Police at the High Court and now Sergeant Choongwa who has been beaten to death in Police Cells. Lungu is responsible for these deaths and others unreported becoz he is Head of the Defence Forces. ZPS should be reformed and PF Cadres…

    Please, stop politicising this death that should have been avoided. We all grieve at the brutal manner a fellow Zambian has been killed by police officers. It does not matter whether one is Bemba, Tonga, PF or UPND. Killing somebody in the gruesome manner that Sergeant Choongwa has been killed is all wrong.

  10. The rot in the Police Service begins from the rotten recruitment service. Children of govt officials are sucked into the police through a corrupt recruitment process. It should surprise no one that most of these kids labor to carry firearms due to their minute body sizes, and their attitude have an air of “what can you tell me? You think I am happy to be a cop? I am not supposed to be doing this shiit job were it not for lack of employment at BOZ. And I will beat the daylight out of you if you ask me one more question and no one will touch me because my father is a top govt official”. Hence this rampant abuse of power out there. The Service is in name only and simply meant to mask the brute force driving the police. Let’s have a clean vetting process at the entry process.

What were they doing when someone in their custody was being beaten UNTIL he died? Were they enjoying it and cheering along, perhaps even betting on his life! This is sickening. Something has gone wrong in Zambia. The Devil seems to have descended to mingle with those given authority.

You mention the devil thus as it was at Golgotha so it must have been at the police station! What happened then has happened and it seems without proper interventions it will recur ad infinitum!

Yet there are plenty people who are being tortured brutally & killed by police. You walk into any police station & you’ll be subjected to broad daylight brutality, whether u r PF or UPND.

    – Brutal assault on UPND cadres did NOT wake up HRC. (remember the video of 4 Paras kicking a cadre on the ground?)

The late was taken to police custody by some police officers ,the late was detained by police officers on duty the record of all the inmates must there in the police Occurrence Book,so if all the suspects are known why are we wasting time with the investigation.If the post-mortem he had broken spin and caused by Sjamboks the question is who provided the Sjamboks.It is my prayer that who ever was involved be exposed by Holy Ghost Fire.

    • Zambian Eye.
      You are collect.The brother who died was beaten by the police, period.
      If the post-mortem results are saying the victim died from beatings and the sjamboks were used,who provided the same sjamboks,because when one is detained by the police in cells,all the belongings of the detainee are remained at the police reception. The problem with Zambia police is that they think that they are above the law.
      Now you can see the widow and the two daughters that have remained behind,who is going to provide for them.
      God is there and who ever was involved in the death of our friend won’t run away from justice.
      Cain in the bible thought he was clever when he killed his brother Abel.
      The blood of Choongwa is on your hand who ever did this.God is great and you will suffer for the sin…

  16. TO MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ZAMBIA: Evil is Evil no matter who does it: Thy shall not kill. That is the commandment no. 07 from God the Creator Himself: therefore who ever did that will face Him and that day is coming soon. Is it the training recruits get at Lilayi and Kamfinsa, No. It is the Satanic demons hanging in all Police Stations in Zambia. Most of the Police Officers are drunks and drink together in the name of Satan. Very few Police men are Christians, many are driven by the devil (Satan). You need Commanders in Police like Brenda Muntemba and Dr. Solomon Jere those who value human lives (Tested Christians). Lastly all Police men repent before judgment comes you will not call for reinforcement that day. It will be on your own not even you wife will come to your aid. Thanks:…

  18. This man suffered a great deal of pain in his ordeal. The Zambia Police has effectively become a militia. Traffic Police, a Stock Market for corruption. I am not political, but the PF in using the police to advance their political agenda has made the police assume that they wield more power than other service units. It is no secret that the rule of law has weakened during the tenure of Edgar Lungu. Look at the constitutional amendments- how many are meant to improve the lives of Zambians and how many simply were passed to advance Edgar Lungu’s cause? This is not a just society, the police kill more people than criminals do, the police actually know criminals. This is as much a crime on those that comitted it as it is on those that stood by and watched.

  19. This case has brought to light many murders or killings by the Zambia Police Force that have ben covered up in the past. If surely a defence personnel can be beaten to death and cops try to cover up. Then what happens to ordinary citizens. It had to take the entire defence force to subdue the police into not covering up the death of fgt Sgt. Choongwa. What happens at UTH when conducting postmortems asks for many answers than questions. Where is the rule of law and are not equal before the law?

I would like to confirm that we are relieved that we have not lost any lives from our upnd team in London following the terrorist attacks in Westminster yesterday . We are also glad that no Zambian lives have been lost. It is sad that the pf government in conjunction with their cadre high commission in London have not issued a statement as we have many Zambian economic refugees in UK who have been forced there due to pf failures. Rip to the four that have lost their lives. Meanwhile here pf police are killing innocent national army workers and covering it up. Pf does not care about life

The Benny Mwinga Police post sager is one of them. I was battered by a cop who had no good reason to do that but because he derived joy when one pleads as he is battered. That happened many years back and up to now they have not changed. One of the reasons being that some are not fully trained but just infused into the system when their relative kisses the dust.

Pf goons believe any tonga speaking person support UPND. Because Tongas have resisted to be cowed like other tribes by the Northerners and Easterners hence the killings. Genocide start like that. This is not the end but the beginning of more killings supported by PF and Lungu. God is in control and time will come when all these things will be exposed and those involved brought to book. In the meantime God is in control.

Someone has lost a life here, a husband, father, brother and so on. Leave politics out of this. Zambians get civilised.

  33. There is too much political paranoia and raw hatred by Zambians of different tribes. It is important to simply keep the focus on the lose of life and the pain, fear and anger that the Choongwa family is currently going through. Zambia Police leadership needs to arrest all the officers on duty and those who were in the same cell with Flight SGT. Mark Nchimunya Choongwa and charge them with murder until all investigations are concluded. This will be a good message to the public, its’ own officers and it will also allow for a clean investigation.
    The postmortem has indicated that Sjamboks were used to beat to death this gallant officer of ZAF. This simple fact already implicates the Zambia Police men & women on duty on the day of Flt. SGT. Choongwas’ death. I am truly heart broken by…

There is no politics involved here but criminal elements abated by the i.d.i.o.cy of a president who seem to be living in a different world. This hate from PF got to stop. No matter how much the PF want to hide the fact that they stole this election the truth remains the truth. THEY STOLE! So let them enjoy their stolen goods and stop harassing people because of tribe. Whites practice racism on us then us f.o.o.lish africans turn against each other just for power! Whites believe in numbers while we believe in tribalism. How f.o.o.lish!

    Punish all killers we pray
    For peace in our getto
    Naughty young men killing innocent people
    Then walk free in the streets our gettos
    Naughty men feel good when killing innocent people
    Then walk free in the streets our gettos
    Thousands of people are killed in our getto
    Thousands are homeless their homes burnt down
    Our children don’t go to school like they used to before, they all hide fearing for their lives
    Punish all killers we say
    Punish all killers we say
    Punish all killers we pray
    For peace in our getto
    We are tired of funerals every week end
    People killed with knives and guns
    We don’t need no trouble no more
    Let people die naturally…

  40. In my limited understanding of the circumstances surrounding this tragic and humanly despicable act of a brutal murder clearly pointing at a government police agency a full independent inquiry and review of related matters of police brutality is required. The intake female officer at the precinct must be thoroughly debriefed under oath or else be thrown into the same population of so accused detainees. The HRC cannot be issuing statements only in the face of tragedy, but must be proactive by monitorinng the methods ,practices ,interactions, jail facilities and oversight of these thugs masquarading as officers of peace. There is no justification for example not to have lighting or even videos in holding cells. R.I.P. OFFICER.

  43. What is the daily incident report (dir) saying?? Who arrested him. Who was on duty at the inquiries. The record of who was in cells is there let them be interviewed not only by the police. This case is very simple Babylon has denied our friend oxygen permanently and must be taken on.
