Over 50 Arrested In Chingola Riots

Over 50 people have been arrested in connection with the riots that broke out in Chiwempala Township in Chingola District on the Copperbelt.

The unruly rioters took to the streets to protest the alleged failure by police to arrest a man they suspect to have been behind the alleged ritual killings in the district.

They blocked roads, burnt three motor vehicles and one house all properties belonging to the same person.

The rioters did not only damage property but also rooted various goods among them groceries and household goods.

Copperbelt Police Deputy Commissioner Wamunyima Wamunyima has stated that police managed to bring to book some of the rioters who are currently detained at Chingola Central Police.

Officers from the Zambia Army and Zambia Police have since managed to contain the situation.

    In zambia, witchdoctors from congo are welcom but prophects are not need in our country. Our leaders in do go 2 witchdoctors 4 promotion and protection. A christain nation but evildoers left free bcoz police offer seek protection frm them. Kikikiki… Chambia,chambia…on cross road

    Prevention is better than cure. If the police is not active in the early hours this is what will be happening. This will contribute to what was happening sometimes back when people were killed like chickens and remove their private parts. It was very easy to catch those culprits but the police did nothing. If it will be like this even in the coming days then let the civilians do what they can do. Thank you.

    Zambia police is just reactive but not proactive. They deal with results only but not the cause, why? Its time we start dealing with causes. We don’t encourage lawlessness but if issues are not deal with this may be the result.

      God is watching and will surely help the mother Zambia,,it’s a christian nation after all.but what is happening will slowly ruin this tittle

    They could’ve just killed the man behind rituals, we can’t allow rituals in Zambia

      Rituals are more useful and more helpful and most supportive than any other things in their blood streams.
      They’re killers,don’t trust them.

    The police in Chingola know exactly who is behind the killingly. They can not catch him/her because they get paid off! Th3 way forward is to effect mass transfers for all policemen to other districts – preferably to the newly created ones. People of Chingola have cried for protection for far too long but the police would rather hide behind their uniforms – to pretend they are doing something about the situation when in fact not.
    The PF want to blame the opposition for everything bad yet they dot know the police are not happy – hence they don’t care about the security problems on the copperbelt. They know that once people on the copperbelt are not happy with the current government then thy will vote PF out! KUYA BEBELE! YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING FOR US!!!

    These guys only apprehend innocent people not culprits.its like we have a bunch of supporters of evil doers in the people we have entrusted with our safety.even here in nchelenge,criminals are left scotch free even when evidence of the offence is there.two days later the same people come back and terrorise us more in the community.there is just something wrong in our society today.
