False Alarm: There was no gassing at Arthur Wina Basic school in Chilenje- Police

Share

Findings of Police Investigations in to a report of Malicious Administration of a Chemical substance (gassing) at Arthur Wina School in Chilenje

After receiving the report of alleged gassing at Arthur Wina School between 12 00 hours and 12 30 hours, it has been established that the whole issue came about as a result of a false alarm raised by a pupil in the grade nine class in question who shouted “gas.”

This brought about commotion and a stampede as all the pupils jostled for safety.

Therefore, as Zambia Police, we dismiss the report of alleged malicious administering of chemical substance reported at the said school and state that the whole scenario was as result of an alarm which led pupils to panic. It was a hoax.

We further call upon school authorities to help in giving hope to their pupils during this period and discourage them from raising false alarm.

  1. Why are you not asking GBM who is doing this gassing? If Someone from the opposition party had said it you could’ve arrested him. And if what he said is true, why is he not rewarded the K250, 000?

  2. False alarm, ok! But there’s a real alarm video of pupils from the same school at Chilenje clinic showing on Zambianwatchdog.

  3. Now that most of us knows that PF is behind the gassing and rituail sacrifice! Sunddenly its getting quite..
    Practice of human sacrifice usually consist of very influential members of high society, people who believe they will never be prosecuted for such horrible actions.”
    “Taxes is one thing, but eating people is another.”
    ZAMBIA WILL SOON BE FREE!

  4. THIS GASS!NG [email protected] IS JUST A LOAD OF BALONEY, & SUPERSTITIOUS S.H!T!!
    95% of Zambi@ns are so superstitious, hence the work ethic & culture IS SO POOR, as they believe they can be lazy, steal & not work hard but be rewarded in heaven, by prayer, or relying on Charlatans like And2ew Ej!madu, or (God)fridah Suma!li.

  6. There is nothing like gassing going on in Zambia. No ritual killings, no humans turning into cats.
    The problem president who can’t control ignorant, superstitious citizens.
    It is just sad that parents are stoning own children accusing them of “gassing ” turning into animals.
    People who should be in jail this week for alarming citizens are:
    1. Charity Katanga
    2. GBM
    3. Sunday Chanda
    4. Thug Kamba

  8. Seer1 does it again! He has just dropped another bombshell on Zambia! While PF is busy accusing UPND of being behind the gassings, the PF Seer1 has pointed his finger at PF whom he has accused of misusing his charms and powers to intimidate and kill people! The Ring Leaders must come clean on this one! Why is the Guidance Minister quiet?

  9. Can’t tell when police are serious or not serious, same as PF leaders, just sides of the same coin….kikikikiki…trust them at your own peril, haven’t you seen enough of them in the last 9 years? Especially the last 6!!

    The Finance minister Dr Ng’andu last week showed the impact of PF on the economy in just nine years after inheriting healthy foreign reserves from RB.

  10. @ Zedian ..:do really conclude that video on watchdog confirms gassing at that school. ?That’s the problem we have in Zambia ubufi, gossip and believing any nonsense on social media especially Facebook.

  11. Another alarmist in the name of Kennedy Gondwe(BBC correspondent in Zambia) was supporting the fake ritual killing on BBC this morning. He was asked which part of Zambia is this happening and he failed to answer. Where are we heading to in Zambia with the likes of Kennedy Gondwe?

  12. The Police must act to arrest anyone be they PF or UPND who is raising tensions and causing false alarms that have led to a state of panic and deaths of almost 20 innocent people at the hands of ignorant and violent mobs.

    We need the police to move in to stop this hysteria on social media, in the market places, at schools, places of work and at bus stations.

    What is happening today is something we have never seen and the Police must act to curb these false rumours and witchhunting.

  13. Nostradamus,no senses ma be you are the one behind he ” Gassing”. cause there is no way a normal person who can say that. you`re blind?
