    Shame upon the Phiri’s. They ought to learn how to solve misunderstandings, and not fighting., over petty issues. Shame for the 16 year old boy. He lost a father and his future. Zambian men must change their attitudes. Stop fighting and learn to sort out differences amicably… If they can kill each other over a battery cell phone.. Look at how they mobbed a female Diplomat, and looted like imbeciles.; and thereafter attempted to kill her, and 3 years on they have no capacity to pay or compensate what they stole but they instead plot to asasinate the victim and in abuse of the judicial process. Something wrong with majority of men in Zambia.
