    Apparently those thieves never stole anything, does it mean if they hadn’t encountered the girl, they would have proceeded into the house. Jumping out of the yard after killing the girl just goes to show that, their purpose was accomplished. Which is very bad, no one should take the life of another as a means of survival, I suspect they must be ritual killers. So residents are no longer safe even if they are in a wall fence. Therefore, avoid going outside to use the bathroom at night, rather use a toilet pot or something that you can use and empty it in the morning. Rip.

      That is sad development, for sure.
      But I have few areas that needs to be filled up? What did she go to outside at that time? Nkana East have toilets inside the house, could it be that it is one one of her boy friends? Was the noise inside the house too loud not to hear such an encounter? This should be a person close to her because before hitting her, she should have shouted for help. God is in full control, what is done in the dark will come in the light one day. RIP

    Very sad indeed. I live in the same neighbourhood. The same night a couple living in Kaleni Street was also attacked and both are in Kitwe Teaching Hospital. Then we have a girl and a boy both battling for their lives. There were attacked in the same neighbourhood Could this be connected as it happened on the same day in the same area? Poliice must find these guys and sort them out
