A 33 year old man of Sansamwenje Village in Chief Kafwimbi’s area in Isoka has been murdered by a mob of mourners.
Muchinga Police Commissioner has confirmed the development to ZANIS in Isoka today.
Mr Katanga explained that irate mourners pounced on Thomas Sichamba 33 years old at the grave yard during the burial of another man who was murdered earlier in the course of last week.
He said a mob of mourners pelted stones and hit Sichamba with stick until he died.
The Police Commissioner narrated that the mob got angered when the headman gave a speech at the burial site in connection of rampant murder cases taking place in the area.
He added that in the process of mentioning the issue of hired murderers locally known as the JAMBAZI, Thomas Sichamba now the deceased stood up and started running which attracted the attention of the mourners who chased and stoned him to death.
Mr Katanga disclosed that police visited the scene of crime and found out that Sichamba sustained multiple head and body injuries due to the stones pelted on him.
The body of the deceased Thomas Sichamba has been deposited at Isoka district Hospital mortuary waiting for postmortem and burial.
The Police commissioner has since urged the Isoka residents to stop killing each other in cold blood as the law will catch up with assailants.
