  1. It’s a very sad development. Whatever was the case, people must learn to practice self-restraint. Now 3 lives have been lost 2 shot dead and one to be sent to the gallows. And then some NGO comes to tell us that there shouldn’t be the death penalty? Power doesn’t come from the barrel of a gun

  2. It is not a good way to handle betrayal. These workers stored his livelihood off his head and sweat, and flourished on the back of his works. They stole his life away.

    But taking his vengeance this way isa bigger crime of conscience. Its an expression of deep anger and not mercy.

    And he has loved himself so much that he didn’t kill himself on the matter because he wants to tell a story, a story of vengeance, a story of thr wrong way to express injury.

    Sad events

  3. Tarino whoever you are you are a sadist what does it matter whether he is a pf upnd or any party cadre 2 precious lives have been lost and that is all you can think about?

  4. This is a very sad development for a small but fast-urbanizing place like Chibombo. It’s probably related to principal-agent conflict in business but settling differences this way is not who we are in Zambia. I’m sure the police will do the needful. Flippant commentary should never be extended to such sad events.
