Police in Kalumbila district are looking for an unknown person who hit and killed a cyclist in a hit and run accident that happened on the Kasempa- Mutanda road in Kalumbila district.

He said the body of the deceased is lying in Solwezi General Hospital Mortuary awaiting postmortem.

Mr Namachila disclosed that a manhunt has been launched for the unidentified driver who is yet to be charged for causing death by dangerous driving.

In a related incident, a 27 year old man of Ngumbo village in senior chief Kalilele’s area died after being run over by an unknown motor vehicle on the Solwezi-Chingola road.

Mr Namachila said Lewis Ngumbo was hit by a motor vehicle that was going in the same direction after the unidentified driver failed to keep to his lane.
