Elephant Tramples Lundazi Man to Death

A 38 year old man of Lundazi district has been killed while his six-year old son was left unconscious after being attacked by an elephant in the field.

Esau Mvula of chief Kazembe’s area met his fate when he was preparing his crop field near his village around 09:00 hours on Tuesday.

Mvula’s son Stanley is still battling for his life in Lundazi District hospital.

Kazembe ward councilor Emmanuel Miti narrated that on the fateful day whilst preparing their field an elephant emerged from the bush and attacked Stanley who was thrown at a distance.

Miti said Mvula was killed when he attempted to rescue his son.

He said Stanley sustained body bruises and was only picked up from the scene by the villagers who heard him screaming after gaining consciousness.

Miti said after the matter was reported to Kazembe Wildlife camp officers moved to the site and killed the elephant to avoid a recurrence of what transpired.

The condition of the boy is said to be stable.
