Happier Times: Dr Tasila Tembo-Peters with Lieutenant Nigel Mwaba


  1. Well done military police. I was actually very worried that he had taken his own life. Now he will have his day in court.

  2. Excellent job by our competent men in uniform . Remember that you can run but you cannot hide. This advice also applies to all those diasporans who have a habit of insulting our president and government because they think they are invincible by virtue of their geographical location. Let me warn you that the day you return you will answer for your crimes as we are aware who you are

  3. Do people who do such nonsensical things think they will get away with it? The world becomes a very small place when you are a criminal.

  4. Ba kaizar Zulu it’s just a matter of time you will be answering for your own crime becsuse they are waiting for you we haven’t forgotten.

  5. Kaizer Zulu, Bally is coming and everything gonna be alright. You are reading wrong books and that is why you think your language is an act of patriotism. You sound like a son of a dictator.

  6. Thank you to our Military personnel for capturing this evil man. Hope he rots in jail and faces the wrath of his crime in there. No Presidential pardon for evil people who kill others and deprive their children of a parent. He must pay for his evil deeds!!!

  7. It was a mismatch. I don’t know what the doctor was thinking, but hey, that is becoming the norm these days as women pass 40 without a man, they fall for young turks. Unless the culture of pestering women to marry is dealt with, we shall see more of such things. Marriage is not for everyone. Witchdoctors also should be caned for attributing singleness to some bad aunt or uncle who is bewitching the single woman. Even some false pastors are ‘delivering’ single women and ‘releasing’ husbands.

  8. Even kaizar Zulu…. The most useless and foolish fool is here preaching the law??…. Zulu just know that your says are numbered and with or without your president you will rote in jail we shilu we….

  9. The Saint, u’re devilish. Are u trying to justify Dr Tembo’s murder? Liberal thinkers believe that two adults who enter into a relationship should be at liberty to do so and also to end it if it fails. The modern world would not hv emerged if liberal thinkers did not influence society in the right way. The church and its advocacy of the devine right of monarchs to rule would still be conducting religious inquisitions and there would hv been no right to vote.

  10. He must be tried and if guilty must be hang by the neck until pronounced dead by a qualified medical practitioner.

  11. All those asking why people are replying to my comment, is it my fault that my comments attract attention? Isn’t the point of this forum to facilitate discussion and debate? Why are you so scared of me ? Useless

  12. @Kamwi, the capture of that murderer is symptomatic of how Kaizer Ze zulu and all those have dehumanised Zambians will be captured and answer for their offences – remember KZ is public number one enemy

  13. It’s becoming embarrassing to call yourself a Zambian these days. Dr Tasila Tembo’s head was cut off from her body Boko Haram-style. Imagine the kind of pain she must hv endured at the hands of this savage! I had expected this to cause outrage from my compatriots. It wasn’t forthcoming. Not even from her fellow Christians. I hv compared this with how Sky news reports outrageous murders in the UK. They give the story wide coverage for an extended time. Not in Zambia, the world’s one and only Christian country.

  14. Peace keepers are now becoming useless to the country….who will save us???? If our own authorities are killing us………..this are people who are making the name of authority to look shame in the eyes of civilians

  15. Please!!! my heart bleed when Zambians are quiet about such a heinous act.
    Tasila was a woman and surprisingly women organisations are quiet, sad. The media houses are too busy with politics.
