  1. So, this criminal Law Enforcement Officer had all the time to hang around after shooting dead two people in the morning between 07 and 08 hours and later stabbing another at 19:55hrs? Is 07:00hrs and 08:00hrs the same as 19:00hrs and 20:00hrs to you? LT, it appears you have serious issues with storytelling or is it news writing? Always trying extremely hard to confuse your readers!

    • Kavindele junior dodged 3 bullets from some guy who still works for Ba Edgar, over a girl-friend. Thank God the guy didn’t use a knife, this time he could have been a fugitive too.

    • #Njonginjo you are surprised!
      Zambia Police Service is more concerned with traffic policing than community policing.

  2. It appears he did the stabbing the night before the shooting and the case was reported to Bennie Mwiinga Police. He should have arrested that night and detained, but it appears he was offered special treatment and allowed to roam free. The following morning he went on a shooting spree and people have now died. Police could have prevented those deaths. There another Police officer who shot another cop in Munali a few months ago and is on is still on the run. Are we safe with these cops????

  6. This is the result when recruitment is marred with corruption. How can anyone person with a sound mind go on a killing spree over a girlfriend? Police officers go under some grueling and dehumanizing training that toughens them up that no amount of $hit when they start working can make them flip overnight.
