Kitwe Businessman Gets Aggravated Robbery Charge for Copper Theft

Police in Kitwe have arrested Daniel Makina Director of Nkana Academy College of Education in Kitwe for allegedly intercepting a truck laden with Copper in Kalulushi District.

Makina, 43, of Nkana East and son to Proprietor of Nkana Academy College of Education is alleged to have intercepted a truck laden with Copper.

Copperbelt Commissioner of Police Charity Katanga said police had been carrying out investigations in the matter that happened last month.

She said Makina was cornered on Friday just after attending the Nkana Academy College of Education graduation, a school where he serves as director.

Police have charged him with aggrieved robbery.

Katanga said Makina, in the company of others intercepted a truck laden with copper worth millions of Kwacha in Kalulushi District.

“This theft of copper occurred sometime in August, so on 14th September, 2018 the anti-robbery picked up the suspect, and a female was also picked in connection with the same on 15th September 2018, and they were both questioned as they are jointly charged. A white truck which was loaded with copper was recovered. Investigations were instituted and two pistols were picked and alleged to have been used in the offence,” Katanga said.

She said apart from the aggravated robbery charge, other charges such as failure to secure a fire arm are expected to arise.

Makina is a well-known business figure in Kitwe District and is commonly known as D-Mark.

    Let the law take it”s course. It is not fair for someone to become rich over other people”s sweat and deaths.From the beginning ,miners die and get injured during the process of copper extraction and they manually work hard but they are paid lowly by most mining companies. Then someone comes and get the merchandize on a silver plate , anyway , katwishi.

    It is a big lesson to the Malina family! The word of God against mistreating others shall always be proved right! Imagine , the lecturers and all the other workers have now stayed for 14 months without pay! About 4 months ago twenty six lecturers were fired for just complaining about the 9 months unpaid salaries . the Malina family is made up of saddists! You see now, the cries of the workers have attracted confusion of the minds of the members of your family! Please pay your workers and the lord shall listen to your prayers in your distress otherwise worse thing may come on

    This is God who is revenging on behalf of the lecturers who have not been paid for 15months now.. The father to the criminal always pretends that they is no money to pay the workers and in his lies, he invokes the name of God that he is saying the truth.. The whole family only looks at their interest and not the interests of others.. It’s not too late for the family to repent otherwise the carlamities are just beginning. The next thing will be the downfall of the college because God has head the cries of the lectucturs
