Chief Siachitema of Kalomo district in Southern province has condemned the setting ablaze of Senior Chief Mweemba’s palace of Sinazongwe district by unknown people recently.

Chief Siachitema said the barbaric act should condemned by all well-meaning Zambians and urged the Zambia Police Service to investigate the matter fully and bring perpetrators to book.

The traditional leader who spoke through his spokesperson Johns Chiboola said it is unfortunate that people can start attacking traditional leaders in this era.

He told ZANIS in an interview today Chikankata that there is need for police to thoroughly investigate the matter and let the culprits face justice.

Recently, Senior Chief Mweemba of Sinazongwe District sustained severe burns after his palace was set ablaze by unknown people around 03:00 hours.

Southern Province Commissioner of Police Bonny Kapeso identified other victims who were burnt along as Clement Hantoboolo 37, Paul Sinakatonga 48 and Mubita Mubita 19 who sustained severe burns all over their bodies and property whose value is yet to be ascertained was destroyed.

The victims were rushed to Maamba General Hospital where they are currently receiving treatment.

    • Sometimes our media in Zambia are too much fake news. Who said it was arson? It could be just normal fire which could have started by the faulty equipment in the house. Let the investigation be done people. I for one do not think tonga people will sink so low to set ablaze their chief all because he welcomed Mr Lungu.

  3. HH MUST ISSUE A STATEMENT.
    WE ARE STILL WAITING TO HEAR FROM HIM.
    CITY MARKET WAS GUTTED BY FIRE BY UPND BECAUSE HH PROMISED ARMAGEDDON IF HE WAS GOING TO LOOSE THE ELECTIONS.
    ALL THE FIRES THAT WE EXPERIENCED PLUS THAT ATTEMPT ON DAILY NATION IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.
    HH AND UPND IS A TERRORIST GROUPING.

  5. I personally would like to know what actually transpired to have such an incident . The traditional leaders ought to be respected by every one in fact they are more close to their subjects .
    Why should some one want to kill an innocent chief in his village !

  6. So what happened to the fires that got started? Who did we find as the arsonist? Unfortunately, we are still wondering mean while some parties are thinking you jump into the confusion first in order to garner support? Let’s wait and wait for police reports since the first arson …

  7. Do some people ever sleep at the mention of the Hakainde Hichilema or HH” s name ? Do they ever take a nap going by their empty comments which are solely characterized by nothing but tribal hatred ? By the way, what is the qualification for some one to become president of the land in Zambia, is it tribe or whatever ? Furthermore, who is the culprit who brought in the stinking norm that certain a certain tribe/ tribes is/ are superior to others ? What a stupid assertion which comes from *****s who claim to be educated and God fearing yet what prevails in their brains is maggot thinking and demonic behavior. What a dull people.
