Zambian Stoned to Death in SA Mob Attack

PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

Pretoria -Thursday, 13th September, 2018

A 28 years old Zambian national has been stoned to death by a group of enraged taxi and minibus drivers in a town of Klerksdorp, North West, South Africa.

Rabson Zulu, holder of passport number 528427 was stabbed with a knife before being stoned to death together with four (4) other foreign nationals by a group of over 30 drivers in collaboration with the local community.

According to the information made available to the Zambian High Commission in Pretoria, Mr. Zulu was murdered over the weekend in a case of alleged mistaken identity at a tuck shop located in Pinasdorp area where he had gone to buy washing powder to clean the car for his relative who he was visiting.

It is alleged that the enraged mob of taxi and minibus drivers together with local people wanted to carry out a revenge attack on an identified foreign national of West African origin for allegedly killing one of the taxi drivers who was accused of raping his employee.

After realising that they had killed an innocent person, the mob fled the scene with no arrests made so far.

Mr. Zulu’s mortal remains have since been deposited at Tsepong government mortuary awaiting repatriation to Zambia.

His death comes barely few weeks after another Zambian national, Kenneth Sikopo was shot dead in cold blood in Germiston in the same country.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa His Excellency Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba has expressed shock at the death of Mr. Zulu.

Mr. Mwamba says the mission was saddened that an innocent life was lost in bizzarre circumstances.

He said  the murder of Mr. Zulu was extremely unfortunate as he was a law-abiding resident in that community.

Mr. Mwamba has since called on the Police to carry out thorough investigations to ensure that Zulu’s murderers face justice.

He has also wished the bereaved family and the entire Zambian community in South Africa God’s strength and comfort during this difficult time.

Mrs.  Naomi Nyawali

First Secretary Press and Public Relations.

Zambia’s High Commission, South Africa.

    Mwebantu bakwa Lesa,if this isn’t xenophobia then what is it?Has it become a crime for foreigners to visit SA?It’s saddening to see what these South Africans are doing to foreigners especially Zambians who played a key role in their quest for freedom.These people are not grateful.I hear stories from people who’ve visited that country before that they are very lazy and not serious with work,once industrious foreigners are seen doing their work with the seriousinness it deserves,they are taken for enemies.Now,the question is should we start acts of reprisal or not?To most of these S Africans life is cheap,killing a human being is the same as killing a rodent or lice.Am appealing to fellow Zambians not to lift a stone in retaliation to what they have been doing.One day,as a nation they shall cry for help to the people they are killing.God in heaven is not blind to what our brothers are doing to us.They are blood thirsty,but they will slaughter one another one day.But okey chabipa sana ku mwaiche wesu baipaya .

    South Africans are lazy people, any foreign nationals they come across becomes a challenge to them.

  35. Big k

    When they are employed all they wait for is the first salary, when they are paid they stop going for work.
    So had working foreign nationals are targeted because of jealous. A word of caution to my zambians, don’t expose yourselves too much when you go to that country. Especially in drinking places you show off too much. Spend your had earned money wisely and avoid moving at awkward hours.

    this makes a very sad reading. how the hell could they have mistaken mr zulu for the alleged west african. may the Lord comfort the bereaved family. for those agitating for revenge, please revenge is for the Lord. remember in the book of Luke when Jesus said “forgive them father for they do not know what they’re doing”. mhsrip.

    I think enough is enough.Even God has set the judgement day to seperate the two groups of people.These monkeys have completely sown that they hate us so much that they will not stop killing us.These people they are killed belong to families it’s a great lose to these families.Please Zambians we have toraled enough,Let us start cuting these people’s heads.Let us start killing them.We have enough of them in Zambia.Even the Isralites used to fight and kill where possible and necessary.

    Sad development, many South African men are illiterate and savages.They are also a lazy lot who want to consume alcohol 24/7 without working but stealing and murder they love.Many South African women love getting married to Zambian men hence the hatred against this young man,sad indeed.
