  1. Lusaka Times what kind of headline is “Police man who has allegedly murdered his wife arrested”. This is pathetic journalism.

  2. Very sad indeed. Very sad. i would like to hear his story. It is good to establish the root cause of anything to ensure it does not happen in the future.

  3. Then you hear UPND wants to remove the death Penalty in Zambia what a stupid move. Rather than remove it the govt should be enforcing it so that people will be afraid to commit heinous crimes of murder. in Zambia the crime of murder will only increase because of late people have seen Mathew Mohan free, Some other woman who murdered the girlfriend to her husband was freed, then the former Chilanga MP was freed etc so what will stop people from committing murder knowing there is a way out after a few years in prison especially if you are rich?
    justice is only for the rich. most deathrow inmates have their sentences commuted to simply years now and when they are out you hear that police gunned down a suspect who was recently released from prison but was involved in another crime.
