  1. As usual its a combination of Bemba thieves and their counterparts from the East…I regret marrying Clement Sinkamba after being enticed with stolen money…

    • Names looks like those battered in Shesheke.
      Hope the officers who arrested those criminals won’t be fired tomorrow.

  2. Why their last names is eastern and northern regions of zambia.these two regions are been messed up in all sectors of zambian life.SAD

  3. These are currently under going severe torture and they are wishing they were not born. Police make sure you squeeze their balls and add pilipili to their backside. Pluck out one eye and one testicle from each one of them. Let this be a lesson to others

  4. Sympathy for the police and a firm belief in the Judeo Christian ethic will convict these men if innocent or guilty.Peter Carlos Hinds.

  5. The Barbadian police could see other people sin.But they(the Barbadian police)can not see their own sin.Where they arrested travelers at the airport.Gave them laxatives.And then went through the excreta looking for illegal drugs.Then prince Charles heir to the British throne could plan a meeting with these nasty and immoral dogs.”A dog returns to his own vomit and a pig to his mire.”.Bible.Peter Carlos Hinds.

  6. The police are so naive.That they can not recognize.That their boots uniforms and armory.Could be the spoil of immoral wars.Imported.Yet they use this apparatus.And are seriously injured in the end.Peter Carlos Hinds.

  7. So that ratio is false which says out of ten people six Bemba’s are thieves. Look at this group which has been nabbed,three are from eastern province,two are bemba speaking and a Namwanga.

  8. What exactly did they want from that house? The items mentioned don’t warrant taking a person’s life. …not that anything else can justify murder. Me thinks there’s more to this than we’re be told.
