    Such cases will be increased due to poor harvesting in some provinces of Zambia

    How many it’s of maize did the old man stole?And killing the old man wasn’t a solution at all,the owner of that Field should have just taken the old man to the police,so that the police does its job,or he should have just just confiscated the maize,and let go off the old man,now him he took the Zambian laws on his own hands minus considering the implications afterwards.
    I suggest that this man must be arrested, and consequently be jailed for failing to take the right step of the law.

    His was an old man, probably suffering from Dementia (memory loss) and desperate for food, he may have not even eaten for days..probably his children don’t care for him. Best was to ask why he was doing it …and then make a decision based on his motive.
    May the law take it’s course…no one should ever raise a hand to an old person. Honour your father and mother so you may leave long in the land that the Lord your God has given you.
