A Zambian national living in South Africa has died after falling from the sixth floor of a flat in Sunningdale area – Pretoria in unclear circumstances.

And the South African Police are investigating the circumstances that led to Mr. Dickson Mailoni Kakoma’s fall from the sixth floor.

Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanue Mwamba has confirmed to ZNBC news in a statement that Mr. Kakoma died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Mr. Mwamba said it is believed he was pushed from the 6th floor from a flat.

He explained that information gathered so far shows that after a night drinking with his friends, Mr. Kakoma decided to visit his girlfriend, also a Zambian national at the said flat in the early hours of Sunday.

Mr. Mwamba said the girlfriend has given a police report that she was not at home and was working in a night shift, when the tragic incident happened at her place.

The funeral is being held in Pretoria and details regarding repatriation of Mr. Kakoma’s remains to Livingstone, will be released later.

    • Sad news.

      Alcohol is destroying so many lives and families in this world.

      Maybe Lungu should make a statement urging citizens to either abstain, or reduce intake of alcohol.

      A sober nation is a healthy nation.

    • I really feel sorry for Emmanuel Mwamba. The guy has never had peace like Frank Bwalya.
      Just too many funerals at his embassy.

  1. Most Africans are not respected at all in this country. I am not simple minded and, I will never participate in deadly activities whereby innocent lives are sacrificed on the basis of being different from my appearance.
    I know that many Africans who are none South Africans are innovative hard-workers and, they also perform very well at several South African universities. I am saddened by the above news. Hopefully, the late victim of such a senseless murderous act will be the last one. Zambians are very friendly people. Any reasonable person can exclusively recognise and truly appreciate Zambians for their unmatched hospitality, after visiting innumerable countries on all five continents. Zambia is the best country which I have ever visited in my entire natural life. Zambian best assets…

  4. Don’t be judgmental. Let the investigations continue. People should not comment about issue they are not sure about. Lets be civil.
