  1. These are UPND cadres that have infiltrated institution in order to destabilize the nation. HH is too power hungry that he can do anything to get in to state house.

  2. @KCI. Don’t be so obtuse. Two innocent human beings were executed/ murdered in broad daylight.

    These two individuals had family. For a minute understand what impact this has upon thier family.

    There is no way this constable carried out killing two people without higher authority. There’s more to this.

    Think for a moment if one of your family was killed would you celebrate

  3. Police are trained for less than 1 year then you expect them to professionals in their execution of duties over highly learned individuals? Let’s them introduce a proper college for this fellas before they gun us all.

    • Very dull. How many months or years do the USA Police train? Police course if you may Google has a number of departments specialized in several activities. Combined Police courses can take 12 years or more. The more reason there are in house courses. Some done abroad. Detection of crime course for example can take 4 years alone. Google on the Indiana Police University Academy in the USA. Initial Police courses are done within one year; including drug, immigration and customs excise law enforcement agencies. What is important is the truth found in the School Certificate achievement at Senior Secondary School level.

  4. Kampyongo is responsible for their deaths. This lunatic in the picture is a gun hungry mascot who will face the full wrath of the law by being sentenced to death. You cant play with guns and execute innocent citizens with impunity.

  5. This is the last nail in the coffin of PF. Funso: Nindani anamutuma constable uyu? PF=PFinished! This is unprecedented, the closest comparison is American police brutality but this exceeds all. Kampyongo should be quizzed hard over this one. His careless mouth.

  6. The information is lacking a lot of facts and it is somehow unprofessional to even announce the name of the suspect so early. While it is good that someone is being held responsible for the heinous crime, I hope this young man will be afforded a fair trial by the state and hopefully he is not just being sacrificed to protect the big fish.

  7. After initially vehemently denying it was not police bcoz the officers only discharged teargas cannisters, the same mouth is now shamelessly announcing it was the police after all……justice needs to be done & swiftly.

  8. @Scouser, who is celebrating? These death would have been avoided if HH did not go to the police with cadres. Let this police officers also answer to his actions may be we will know who made the order.

  9. What’s wrong with ZP…do you not take smart photographs of your officers when they graduate or for their IDs…you have a photo of an officer looking like a thug.
    This officer needs to get proper lawyers …he has every right to say its higher command, ministers Bowman and Stephen K who issued instructions for extreme force to be utilised.

  10. We will await a court ruling on this matter. One is innocent until proven guilty. Let us not discuss matters that will be before courts lest we be cited for contempt of court . There is a lot more to this story than most of you known. The intelligence I saw will shock many people when the actual case is before courts. All I will say is that opposition need to be tamed

  12. I feel sorry for him. He is the sacrificial lamb. If he had fired without orders he would have been arrested the same day. The chain of command should bear the consequences. He was following orders! Mulekeni mwana imwe! Let us call for his freedom, please!

  13. Who gave this Constable the orders to shoot? Was the shooting random or targeted? Is it ZPS’ Policy to shoot and kill innocent and unarmed Civilians? Was Constable acting alone? This appears an inside job and planned in advance of the shootings. We wouldn’t be surprised if Constable Nyundu is just a Cover-up. To get to the truth an Inquest is required.

  14. This is a case of finding a scape goat you can’t charge a lone policeman without charging the commander, they are trying to save themselves by sacrificing a young naive officer . shame on you Kampyongo. Pf is a crafty dubious part headed by Lungu. wake up Zambians, after elections the policeman will be free while you Zambians will be suffering .

  15. It looks like a fabricated, fictitious and Bogus person impersonating to be A Policeman. They could have picked up any one in police custody to pretend to the the accused. Why take so long over a strait forward issue? Anyway the truth is notorious it will come right sooner. The PF govt is not trusted on a number of issues….eg Gassing city market fire to-date the culprits are not known. We are fcuked up nation

  16. Isn’t this the same Esther Katongo who said that, deployed policers were not given GUNS? So what did this constable use to kill those two innocent lives? Ine I’m now confused.

  17. This is a set-up job. There is no way a lone Constable could have shot and killed Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda at two seperate locations. Who allocated Cons Nyundu with a gun and ammunition and then ordered him to shoot and kill two people? The ZPS Command must be held accountable. Is their a Ballistic Report showing Nyundu shooting the two victims? It was said Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda were collateral damage or pawns in a chess game. So who was the target? More questions than answers.

  18. Smt I wonder. People cry for the arrest of the culprit. Culprit is arrested ati, he cannot be the one. So tell us the culprit.

    48 houses – the case is in court but cadres still want the real owners, if you know them, then show us.

  19. IF ITS TRUE GOOD FOR THE FAMILIES
    BUT KNOWING PF THIS IS JUST A PLOY TO DISTRACT FROM THE TRUTH
    LETS WAIT FOR THE COURT TO ENLIGHTEN US FURTHER
    THE TRUTH WILL BE REVIELED GOD WILLING

  20. 48 Houses There will be an enquiry as to whether they are to be bull dozed to the ground
    So we see who squells loudest ITS the only way

  21. One nabbed, we still have Police Officers who killed Mapenzi, Vespers, and Frank Mugala on the loose. Not even quarter of the job is done yet, until we get the others as well. Police are still waiting for the President to ask for a report to do what they are supposed to do

  22. Abaasula banankwe bamubutuka! You see! You should learn to evaluate every instructions you receive from your boss, especially if you have st.u.p.i.d one’s.

  23. This is what happens when you let police investigate themselves and you take months to bring someone to book when thi could have been done in 7 days…it all points to incompetent leadership of Lazy Lumgu!!

  24. Let the able Courts of Law rule. May the two deceased people continue to rest in perfect peace and God strengthen their families.

  25. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POLICE ARE HARASSED INTO SERVING THE INTERESTS OF THE RULING PARTY INSTEAD OF WORKING AS A STATE INSTITUTION WHOSE MANDATE IS TO PROTECT ALL PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA. WE HAVE A GOVERNANCE PROBLEM IN ZAMBIA. A CONSTABLE KILLING TWO PEOPLE AND IT TAKES MORE THAN A MONTH TO IDENTIFY HIM? THE PRESIDENT WAS ON A HOLIDAY IN NYIMBA ON THE DAY OF THE SHOOTING? ANOTHER PARA TROOPER POINTED AN AK 47 HH’S LAWYER AT FRANK TAYALI AT CABINET OFFICE ON THE SAME DAY? WERE ALL THESE NOT PLANNED? CRY THE BELOVED COUNTRY!

  26. #Rogers Molobeka, please it is not Africa twasebana. American police have killed more civians that any other police force in the world. It is not good for police to kill the civilians. But let us wait for the confessions. And see how the case unfolds. We need to know the motivation behind this man shooting and killing innocent people.

  27. For you who are commenting as if you know much, I think you better let the law take its due course. If you know something put your(self/selves) forward legally as witnesses otherwise you may land your(self/selves) into contempt of court hot soup.

  28. Can you please find out who instructed him to shoot before you rush him to the courts. Looks like they are trying to cover up something.

  29. So, this was the sniper, HH was talking about! Now that he has been arrested, the name of his master should also be revealed. Fanwell Nyundu might have held the gun, we want to know who ‘pulled’ the trigger!

  30. There has to be someone who was handling this constable. Had the shooting orders been issued by the senior officials, then how come only one constable opened fire and only two bullets? This is something beyond apprehension.

  31. His background needs to be checked thoroughly. There are possibilities that he has affiliations with UPND. Or could have been hired by Hakainde Hichilema to kill Nsama Nsama Chipokya and Joseph Kunda.

  32. Somehow I have a feeling that this will lead to a big fish soon. We can expect law and order situation in Lusaka, like the one on December 23 when Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kunda were killed.

  33. This is just the henchman. We want to know who ordered him to kill Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kunda. We also want to know how Hakainde Hichilema claimed that it was a sniper who killed the two persons.

  34. It is a bit difficult to believe that this constable killed them on his own. Nsama Nsama was at a restaurant buying breakfast when he was shot. The bullet hit him in the head, as if the shot was taken to kill him instantly. Joseph Kunda was killed among the people. Can anyone believe that this constable went to the restaurant, killed Nsama Nsama, came back and shot Joseph Kunda, who was protesting among the thousands of UPND cadres. This is a bit unbelievable. There are some missing links.

  35. Let’s not jump to the conclusion as yet. Wait till the investigations are completed. More skeletons will tumble out of closet in days to come. Just wait and watch.

  36. By this logic, Hakainde Hichilema should be the first person to turn in as witness. Within a couple of hours of the incident, he had claimed that it was a sniper who shot the two innocent men. Have you ever thought of this? Where did he get the information from? Why didn’t he tell the police about it in advance if he knew about it? Did he tell it after the incident? No. He preferred to make the claim, addressing his supporters! Wow!!

  37. Can you please explain what interest of ruling party was served in the killing of Nsama Nsama? He was to prosecute HH. His killing would affect the case and help the accused, who is HH. The only beneficiary in this killing is Hakainde Hichilema. That is the motive for the murder. In my opinion, HH must have hired the constable to knock off Nsama Nsama Chipokya.

  38. You are right. There is more to this and it needs to be investigated. As you claim, if the seniors have ordered the firing, why only Fanwell Nyundu fired and all the other were just standing? Don’t you find it suspicious?

  39. Police or solders act on instruction from above. Why has it taken long to give the answers to the nation? Was the police officer under threat when he was in a group of other officers?

  40. Police men must be very careful and learn something from this,don’t just be excited for nothing, you will be alone and alone to answer charges. They just use you.

  41. Kikikikikikikiki. Yaba. Kwena you have broken my ribs. The Sacrificial Lamb . Ali mundalama umwaice pakusumina to be the sacrifial lamb. Obvious his Pastor will have a good tithe. Who can say NO to be a sacrificial Lamb when Covid has distroyed economy? when elections are just around the corner. I hope he is really a Cop.

  42. it’s clear this man meant to kill. for who did he do this. who sent him. who benefits more from the killing and the confusion there after. hope the trail will reveal all this
