    MTSsRIP,
    the culprits don’t deserve to be among us..
    umutima wakwa satana
    they should be punished for their sin
    may God Almighty help our men and women in uniforms find em as soon as possible

    • P.M

      Iam almost certain that they were butchered by fellow Chinese mafia. This has happened on several occassions in South Africa. Police must not concentrate on thinking Zambians did this. Mark my words this is the work of Chinese mafias.

      • Margaret

        I doubt it is Zambians or other Chinese…They are not in competition with Zambians or Chinese. They have started a business in a corner of little South Africa and Chinese are feared and hated by other arriviste as they cannot compete with Chinese business ethics, production, efficiency…Chinese work they are not just drunken sleazy managers.
        How sad that foreigners should use our country for their dirty turf wars and one upmanship.

      • Musopelo

        Very true I also strongly believe it’s fellow Chinese. They don’t like competition and kill each other

  10. Patrick BWALYA

    It’s such negative and sad developments that erode investor confidence.This heinous crime has painted a very bad picture of the security situation obtaining in the country where criminals are daily having field day with impunity.

  11. Chishimba kambwili(imbwili)

    I will comment later on.am consulting my sg

  12. O.M

    I was in Mumbwa several times. Those Chinese were living inside the shop and had CCTV cameras. It should be easy for police to trace the killers. If the equipments for image storage were removed then high possibility of fellow Chinese men.

  13. Simfukwe

    Very sad the way some zambians talk against Chinese can surely result in this heartless murder kambwili now have seen? Ukulandalanda kulaletelela

  14. Charles micklay

    • Edgar characters lungu

  15. Jms

    Mind you stop bloodshed, stop stealing, stop making people suffer due to your negligence,make poor people laugh although the economy is down you may blame Chinese, Zambians or any other tribe but the thing is how can you come all the way from China living away from any close relative while knowing that Zambia today is corrupt, zambians are suffering,the economy is high etc please we should be careful how we do things otherwise we will blame innocent people M.T.S.R.I.P too bad we should pray hard that it will never happen again its shameful

  51. PATRICK JB BANDA

    Too bad for the Chinese, Where was the security guard for this to take place, Please please Zambians Don’t kill, CHINESE are good investors in ZAMBIA they build good projects like Roads,schools , hospitals,etc,but TURKISH they do nothing ,but just firing the workers and abusing them, better to kill to Turkish people ,they are just dogs

  55. sobelenge

    Black people,that’s stupid. Don’t you know there are zambians living in China. And if zambia is for zambians does mean we should be killing foreigners? Think before you comment. It’s evident that you have no intentions of traveling abroad judging from your stupid comment,but one of your relative will,how will if the same befall them and you get such comments like yours? Grow up wechimuntu.

  61. kerico44

    AT LAST,CCTV FOOTAGE, in circulation. Very bed. indeed.

  62. Jorginho gs

    Rest in peace, to bad

  63. MARY

    I bellieve that Zambians can reach that extent of killing people in such a way

  64. bwalya

    sad development

  65. Lindiwe Ncube

    To hell chinise rubbish. Kill them all

  66. Kings

    Note That We Have A Very Poor Security System In Our Country, And This Habit Of Staying Behind Shops Is Very Bad, Some Years Back It Happened In Lusaka To A Certain Couple Who Were Also Staying Behind Their Shop. With This Nation’s Poor Security People Should Learn How To Position Themselves To Avoid Such Incidences. God Will Not Let The Culprits Go Scolt Free. Zambia Is Becoming Scaring. What A Sin.

  67. WaZambia

    From watching the video and seeing his dress code it looks like Its probably one of their workers. How did he so easily break into their house without a gun. They probably opened for him because they know him. No wonder he even killed them so they dont catch him. Their workers should be investigated first.

  68. WaZambia

    You see I told you. News has just been released that he has been caught. He was working as their salesman police say. Some things are don’t need rocket science to figure out.

  69. Tumbwi

    When politicians invite citizens by using hate speech/language, this is what happens. Certain people in society believe lies. If it was not for the footage from the CCTV, already some people were saying it is a rival businessman. Politicians with no vision.

  70. D'mar

    Death is certainly not a good thing, but am surprised no one has mentioned how a young Zambian student was murdered in China over a girl, I can only remember his surname he was Tembo, in short am saying these guys are like South Africans they are only good in a foreign land when you are in their land awe sure Uzachucha

  71. Chaminach

    Nothing happiness for no reason ..

  72. kelvin

    The guy is just stupid and he likes money to much. here at the station everyone knows him when it comes samples.

  73. kelvin

    AND I DONT THINK IS A ZAMBIAN LAST NAME FIGO

  74. killan mweenga

    The murderer is now in the hands of the police officers. This have now become good in which the murderer has to be punished with hard labour and not to kill. There’s a rumour that the murderer was with the other Chinese people.
    Too bad.

  75. Mk

    Very unfortunate the Chinese being killed by a little boy …I can’t believe it…

  76. Civilised

    Lindiwe Ncube your comments are evil. Don’t allow those thoughts to fill your heart. Whether the Chinese have wronged you that’s not the reason you should celebrate this murder.

  77. enalo

    Commendable police officers deserve ellevetion. A bar to each officer.
