Female Suspect Commits Suicide in Police Cells

A 33-year-old female suspect has committed suicide in police cells in Chingola District.

Police in Chingola on Friday arrested and detained Kalumbu Sakayaya for allegedly stealing a mattress, belonging to Moses Sinyali of Soweto area in Chingola.

But Sakayaya, a resident of Soweto township, committed suicide in police cells on Friday using a Chitenge material, Copperbelt Police commissioner Charity Katanga has stated.

“The incident happened on February 22, 2019 between 07:00 hrs and 13:05 hrs, in which the suspect was alone in police cells detained for the theft of a mattress, a property of Moses Sinyali, 33, of house no. 55, Butungwa Rd Soweto compound, Chingola,” Katanga stated.

“The body is in Nchanga North General Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem to determine the cause of death. Inquiry file was opened.”

    This story sticks. Something somewhere is not right. Two things, first; the story does not mention which police station cell she was detained in. However, if it is at Chingola central police, I bet there could have been one of more offenders locked up in that cell, especially that it was on a Friday. So the fact of her being alone on that Friday morning is questionable. Are police telling us the truth?
    Secondly; how could a person take their own life solely because they stole a single mattress? No matter how unstable that woman was, going that far as the last resort in that circumstance is also quite questionable?
    To add more questions to this jigsaw puzzle, one would ask, why was she allowed to go into the cell with a chitenge material?
    Also the timing when the incident is said to have taken place is not adding up. 07:00 – 13:00…questionable I would suggest. Becuase we are not told when she was arrested and what time she was locked up…but for the sake of augment, if she was arrested on Thursday, Feb. 21..then taking her own life would have been done in the night, not wait until morning. Is someone trying to miss lead us here…questionable I believe. But this story is not as clear cut as it is simply reported by police, they could be more to it.
