Kabompo Central Ward Councilor Victor Muhanga has bemoaned the death of a 30 year old man who died after being given herbs by relatives to stop him from drinking beer.

Mr. Muhanga said told ZANIS in an interview today that people should stop administering herbs to others because it is dangerous due to the unknown contents and dosage.He said it is sad to lose such a young energetic young man in such a manner as such deaths are avoidable.

Mr. Muhanga advised families to learn to utilize counseling services from clinics and hospitals to help people addicted to any drug or alcohol abuse as herbal medicines have never been a good choice for solutions.Police in Kabompo confirmed having arrested and detained one suspect a relative to the deceased in the matter who was brought with the herbs.The incident happened on Wednesday, 6thJune, 2018 at M8 compound.

The deceased has been identified as Misheck Kasoka, 30, of Katupisha village in Chief Sikufele and his relative identified as Charles Kapusu.
Meanwhile, the area councilor has also condemned the death of a 65 year old woman of Kabulamema area in Kabompo district who was recently found dead with a broken skull, suspected to have been a victim of witchcraft.

Mr Muhanga has appealed to the traditional leadership of Kabompo to help intervene by counseling their subjects against such acts as not all old people are wizards.He said people should not suspect and kill elderly people because it is barbaric and inhuman to do so, adding that police should strongly investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.

    Blame God.This is why we tell you that God is a jerk.The Bible says, “You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!” (Psalm 139:16).So God knew (he is omniscient) this drunkard man and that old lady were going to die but he could do nothing to prevent the mayhem instead remained hidden in the name of giving us free will and choice.If God really exits then he is evil bcoz him being omnipotent (all-powerful) & omniscient (all-knowing) he would used his “divine” intervention but bcoz he is imaginary no help was given to prevent these sad deaths.

      @Mbili Yakale....You answered your own question. We don't feel or see anything. Of course, you can't imagine what nothing looks like. It doesn't have a look. It's not a thing. What does a rock feel? What does a plastic bag see? What did you feel and see before you were conceived? What did you feel before the Earth was formed? Nothing. Nothing. There as no you to feel or see anything. There will be a pile of decaying flesh with no ability to generate consciousness. Soo what you're asking is similar to, "What does a computer compute when it's unplugged and its battery has fully discharged?".

      @pathako pinu it all depends on who your god is. You need deliverance. My God is not a cruel God. Some of these deaths we just bring them upon ourselves. Does someone really need to take a concoction to stop drinking alcohol? God acts with his mighty power when we engage with him in prayer. Draw closer to God and He will draw closer to you.

      @ Christ Ambassordor...You live in Illusion fantasy.Tell TB Joshua & Bushiri just to heal one amputee or when are we going to see an amputee getting healed apart from healing people with “malaria”.As long as this does not happen everthing boutta your god is imaginary. Okay imagine if we say ,”Dear God, almighty, all-powerful, all-loving creator of the universe, we pray to you to cure every case of cancer on this planet tonight. We pray in faith, knowing you will bless us as you describe in Matthew 7:7, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Mark 11:24, John 14:12-14, Matthew 18:19 and James 5:15-16. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen”.Imagine if we say ,”Dear God, almighty, all-powerful, all-loving creator of the universe, we pray to you to cure every case of cancer on this planet tonight.

      You may hate this Pathaku pinu but his reasoning is sound. He can cause a mental revolution 0

      I AGREE WITH PATHAKO ON THIS ONE The same God you worship is the same God of The brutal slave master, the brutal apartheid master & Cecil Rhodes, the same God of Muslims who sold & castrated Black Africans the same God of a judgemental, & unforgiving Donald Trump all people who really view you Black Africans as subhuman, & disposable cargo, to be traded, & discarded at will. In the olden day The Pope said Black Africans had NO SOUL, so it was free for all to brutalise, & exploit the Soulless Black ones! IF THE ABOVE ARE GODS CHOSEN ONES, & THEY WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, I FOR ONE DON'T WANNA BE IN THAT HEAVEN, COZ ITS REALLY HELL, but back to reality, Religion is just a hoax & fairytale, used to exploit the docile ones. NOT FOR ME!

      Pathako pako I don't agree with you.God exist. It the god in this small book called the bubble who doesn't exist. As Africans we have always believed in true God and not this god with a pen and return instructions and ends up going against logic. Africa wake up.

    Pathako your days are numbered, you will nash your teeth when your time of tribulation comes. Keep your foolishness to yourself, God is not to be mocked. Remember the life you are living is not yours we all live borrowed lives.

    All dear me, no one blames God and be luck in this world. God is our creator, thus everyone must fear Him. God is above everything you can praise here on earth. Let us learn to be humble before Him because God is the source of life and He created us. In view of my writing just blame yourself for lack of understanding about God.

      @Frank, please do not forget to ask him to help you learn how to express yourself correctly so His word can be heard.

      GOD OF ABRAHAM & JACOB, MY FOOT!! If you are a Black African, go to Israel, home of Gods chosen children of Abraham, & Jacob, & let's see if they will treat you with respect, & dignity. Only after that can we sit down, & debate whether the whole Jacob /Abraham hoax is good & healthy for Black Africans. Your brother's are being held in detention / concentration camps in the Negev desert as we speak, awaiting deportation back to Africa, as "They risk contaminating the pure blood of God's chosen people' You either know this already, or you will bury your head in the sand, continue to live in denial, despite the evidence before you.

    Never argue with a fool....only him will say there is no God..... Something to do with his foundation..... On how one was raised in a family.....more to say.. If the Father was not responsible to the family...... So understand his foolishness.......
