Police Gun Down Seven Armed Criminals

Police in Lusaka have gunned down seven notorious criminals suspected to be foreign nationals in an exchange of fire recovering four firearms among them, three Pistols and one revolver with rounds of ammunition.

Police spokesperson Esther Katongo says the incident occurred on Thursday between 19:00 and 20 00 hours in Lusaka’s Makeni Simson area after Police received a tip off from members of the public.

“A search in a motor vehicle which the criminals were using, a Toyota Ipsum registration number ALX 8160, silver in color, a further recovery of 36 rounds of ammunition of a revolver, two number plates bearing registration numbers AAJ 4317 and ABM 9712, two masks, four reverts, 22 assorted cell phones, assorted foreign currency among them Chinese, Indian, Zimbabwean, Malawian and Singapore currencies was made” she said.

Katongo added that the criminals are suspected to have been behind a spate of aggravated robberies experienced in Lusaka targeting foreign nationals.

  30. Joe London

    How are foreigners make it easier to move around without even fearing the police? Moving with guns from their countries to wherever they want to use them without fearing any one or the police.

  31. Joe London

    The police must introduce and mount RoadBlocks as they are a good thing like what used to happen in the UNIP days.

  45. Hendrick Johannes

  48. Dave doff

    So in Zambia the police kill everyone without reserving none for evidence? ??

  49. Kondjeni

    We the people of Namibia are very proud of the Zambian police for doing what the Namibian police couldn’t do against these thieving marauders. We know that the good riddance of these enemies of progress is not political but a safety precaution. It’s a good lesson that if criminals have managed to break down Namibia they can’t succeed in Zambia. Thank you for refusing to accept lawlessness. I understand that they have been going to Zambia often. Criminals shouldn’t be entertained anywhere in the world. In our language also spoken by the deceased thugs we say “otwa pandula unene” (Thank you very much). Zikomo the people of Zambia.

  50. Tim

    Zambian police please bring their body to Namibia

  51. Tobias

    Who gave their correct names and identities that they are all namibians as they were exchanging fire and die? I ask cose criminals they evere carry wrong documents n no body talk to them ovasa. I heared there was one of my cousin n i m still doubting of preparing to get the body from there. I don’t support criminals so ovasa oita yavo.
