Zambia Police investigation team into the ritual killings have recovered suspected cooked human hearts and livers and other uncooked body parts.
Minister of Home affairs Stephen Kampyongo said that the investigation team working with one of the suspects who is suspected to be the mastermind led the investigation team to the recovery of parts which have since been submitted to the forensic laboratory for examination.
Speaking when he delivered a ministerial statement in Parliament on Thursday, Mr Kampyongo said some neighbours to the suspect are also suspected to have eaten the cooked human body parts unknowingly.
Mr Kampyongo however said the investigations are still ongoing and the suspect is scheduled to appear in court soon.
The Minister however said the police have intensified security measures to curb the spate of suspected ritual murders.
He also explained that suspected ritual killings are a result of false beliefs promoted by some traditional healers and herbalists who claim that the use of human body parts in rituals can help people accumulate wealth.
Mr Kampyongo has since called for community participation to help bring the culprits to book.
He has also urged the members of the public to desist from taking the law into their own hands.
Mr Kampyongo disclosed that since October 21st, 2017 the country has recorded seven suspected ritual killings of males between the age of 25 and 40.
