    Those murderous who killed the two couple Chinese Nationals,in whichever way,are just people who are well known,people who have been staring at those Chinese Nationals,who knew their movements,thus the time they sleep and wake up,hence they killed them,so the Zambia police,and the general public should make eure that they work hand in hand and bring these culprits to book.Thank you,one Izzy,a concerned unza student.

    It’s a complex murder and the investigators should leave no stone unturned. Hacking people to death like that is inhuman and it goes with so much anger… Like vegeance. Who knows, maybe the couple killed other people in their country or elsewhere, and then came to invest in Zambia. The world is too small. Be clean guys. You don’t kill others and go and shine your candles elsewhere. Unresolved murders or crimes can attract such similar vegeance acts. Let the police investigate the root cause of the attack,mfor it to be able to deal with the violence. You don’t steal and kill people in Zambia and then go and invest in China or shine in the UK. The world is a smal place, the victims can trace you and seek instant justice. Be clean before you invest. Zambia is full of hate crime and some people are satanists and thieves just by orientation.. So the attach may be from local disgruntled Zambians/haters, who cannot live well at seeing others progress. Even the stigma against the Chinese by locals or political disgruntled people can be the root cause.. The murder is gruesome and it shows so much hate and anger..

    I DONT APPROVE THE HEAVY MUSHROOMING OF CHINES IN ZAMBIA BUT KILLING THEM IS NO OPTION. this is not the way zambians behave. is it because of the hard times zambianz are facing now. change the govt and grow the economy.

    This Act could portray a wrong picture of Zambia and scare away investors. Apart from wanting to rob the place the criminal just hated the people he murdered in cold blood. They may treat us bad sometimes in our own country but lets not pay them with ills such as this, this is not us , its never been Zambian to do such. Lets shy away from such acts.
