Runway Cop Shot Friend over Failure to Arrest TV Debtor

07TH JANUARY, 2019 – Refer to the earlier statement on the shooting of Constable Kapila at Munali Police Post.

Brief facts concerning Constable Kapila’s shooting according to eye witnesses   are that the suspect Constable Kabasiya and wife had a television set which needed to be repaired and later be sold.

 

The television set was taken to a named technician (tv repairer) within Kaunda Square and after some days, the technician paid a deposit of K500 remaining with a balance. However, on 4th January, 2019 at around 20:00 hours, the wife to Kabasiya went to Munali Police Post to have the technician arrested because  it had taken some time  for him to pay the balance.

 

She found Constable Kapila on duty who advised her to take civil litigation because  the matter was civil, but the woman  insisted that the technician be arrested.  Constable Kapila stood his ground and Kabasiya’s wife left. A few minutes later, Constable Kabasiya appeared at Munali Police Post in uniform armed with an AK47 rifle.

 

He wanted to confirm if the technician was detained and he proceeded to check in the cells and in the Arrest and Prisoner’s Property Book (APPB) and he did not find the name of the technician.

 

He went outside where Constable Kapila was standing and started pestering him about the whereabouts of the technician, but Kapila told him that they had not arrested him. Kabasiya insisted and started threatening Kapila that he was going to shoot him and he later fired the gun.

The suspect is still on the run and a manhunt has continued.

    Chendabusiku its not posible to nub a already passed person, yes itsn’t possible when a suspect person decides to end his or her own life for fear of been arrested by the authority that person can never be caged but only God will judge the same person bcoz of: (1) for first crime committed (2) for ending self life when time has not called.u just have to leave it to our supreme judge, God ‘almighty’ and that’s how it is.
