  1. The robbery will expose people who had gone to the casino for any other business. Cameras when switched will reveal filth that goes on in casinos.
    Overall that’s a very sad development to lose colosal sums of money.

  2. That is the end , our Zambian police, if it was 4 Opposition carders they could have been in police custard by now . but when it comes to that , the case is already closed . even if the carder was in mporokoso they could send the presidential Jet to go and erst him

  3. What a thing….. Is it the economy that has pushed people into this kind of practice or it’s just their proffession

  4. Am sure the premises had CCTV. The thieves will be arrested soon
    who steals phones nowdays? they will be easily tracked down using the mobile tracking system at any service providers.
    Am sure wherever they are they are spending careless its just a matter of one opening his eyes and putting ears on the ground. Let the nose smell that money in the air

  5. IT USUALLY STARTS AT THE POINT OF SHARING THE LOOT. ONE ROBBER IS NOT SATISFIED WITH THE PORTION GIVEN AN DECIDES TO SPEW THE BEANS.

  6. Hmmmm so casinos do actually make a lot of money. As far as apprehending the robbers is concerned that is a long gone conclusion.

  7. Comment:This is the real job police are meant for not harassing UPND and other opposition party members for for trivial offences. Prove your selves that you are worth the Chinese card box houses PF is building for you from borrowed money.
    Half the police force manpower is made up of PF cadres without police training as they are merely given police uniforms to pursue opposition party members holding rallies and visiting different towns. The can not stop a robber in a cassino.
