Killer Cop Appears in Court

A fugitive Zambia Police Constable Edwin Kabasiya who allegedly killed his fellow Police Officer Lenox Kapila in Lusaka’s Kaunda Square has appeared before the Lusaka Magistrates Court for explanation of the charge.

Kabasiya who earlier handed over himself to Chipata Central Police Station in Eastern Province after being on the run made his appearance before Magistrate Jennifer Bwalya on one count of murder contrary to the laws of Zambia .

However, the suspect could not take plea but had his charges read out to him because the Magistrate Court has no jurisdiction to hear and try him for his murder case.

In the meantime the suspect will only be appearing for mention while awaiting instructions from the DPP .

State Prosecutor Brian Sinyengo has since set August 26 for another mention

In January this year, Constable Kabasiya shot constable Kapila for refusing to arrest a technician who was repairing his television set.

    Foolish Cop!!!! Stupid Cop!!! How can you kill your fellow Officer instead of killing animals in the bush?? You were supposed to be a Poacher not a Police officer because you do not qualify to be a Police officer. Ba DPP don’t let this case die a natural death but take this culprit to Court until he is jailed and work in Prison. We are watching you Zambia Police and DPP!!! Thanks

    Killing your friend over a TV set sure…..instead of investigating on big issues like 48 houses which the owner is not known. What kind of training did you go for. You deserve it and justice on this case should prevail.

    The reason why I like Zambia Army, ZNS and ZAF Bcoz the are very disciplined. You will never find them mufyabupuba. Government should start employing matured men and women not utubaice utu kabwela kasenda na loan thinking Zambia belongs to his father.

    No human beings are perfect.Just look at your behaviour you are not correct also.

  31. SEE MIND (MWAMPO)

    VERY STUPID! SEND HIM TO LIBYA OR IRAN HE GO AND FIGHT THEIR !!!

  32. Chitsekedi

    The only best solution to these police habit, is to charge them accordingly , we have seen a lot of these police murderers enjoying peace and acquitted.But if it was a civilian, he would have been already charged with murder case.The L.A.Z must employ people who are trained to do their jobs and not destroyers, trained criminals and promoters of injustice in Zambia. You are just destroying enocent future Zambians, because they Will also pick it up from your rubbish.

  33. Chuma

    Today is him and tomorrow is me remember no matter is a police officer or who else killing someone is a sin.
