Mob Kills Former PS On Suspicions Of Gassing.

Former Town Clerk, Mr. Timothy Haakuyu, has been murdered along with two of his colleagues in Gwembe by a mob who accused them of being part of the people behind the terror gassing attacks.

This happened at Munyumbwe, 32km from Gwembe.

Mr. Haakuyu also served as PS in the Ministry of Labour and Social Security under President Rupiah Banda.

His fate was shared on Facebook by his neighbour and ZRA employee, Nkweto Tembwe. Mr. Hakuyu used to live in the Civic Centre area.

This comes after President Edgar Lungu’s appeal to members of the public to stop taking the law in their own hands and allow law enforcers to take charge.

And in a related incident, Evelyn Hone College has had a gassing incident this afternoon.

      You are foolish. This is your PF hoping idiots like you blame HH and hopefully stay in power. GBM says he knows who is behind it. Why doesn’t he tell the nation than allow innocent people being killed.

    Let’s allow the invisible hand to take control of this country

      Suspected UNDP used pepper sprays in 2016. Few were caught with imflemable substances at the height of fires. But for the poor judges they would have entered. So UPND is potential suspect! A security wing worthy it’s salts could start its investigations from here.

    The Government must stop citizens to patrol during night and allow the security wings to patrol, innocent people will be killed and crimals will be hiding in the name of patrol, both party cadets for both ruling and opposition must stop patrolling

      Who are you to “finish them”. The country has laws and it’s only idiots like you who think you have the right to take the law into your hands. Stupid idiot.

    In addition to the above story, Lusaka Times reports that: “Former Local government Permanent Secretary Timothy Hakuyu has died. Mr Hakuyu died in the early hours today, Thursday 20th February 2020 after a mob intercepted him, searched his car and found him with offensive weapons. According to sources the former PS was stopped by the mob who insisted on searching his vehicle. It is alleged that during the search, Mr. Hakuyu who was in the company of two others was found with Axes, Syringes, and masks, which infuriated the mob to attack.”

    Chanda, you are really foolish and you think like a maggot.


    But I don’t understand this(One of the senior citizen Ba Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba said he knows the master minders of gassing schem,why is the police quiet,they would have summoned him so that this problem come an end,but nothing is happening!what will the people think? people are dying on a daily basis and yet ba GBM knows the one behind it!I remember the His Excellence President Edgar Chagwa Lungu promised a huge sums of money to anyone who can review/have the names of the gassing schem culprits!Come on,the issue bad,yet others are relaxing comfortably.😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    The death of our former Ps of local Goverment, late Timothy hakuyu and 2 other colleage is a regretable experience which has come at a time when the nation is grappling with issues of gassing and ritual killings.The call to invite scotlandyard police to investigate the issues behind the veil of ritual killings and gassing by an opposition leader, is a presumptious and an undermining political undertone, meant to mask and sway away the peoples attention from the crux of the matter.It is crystal clear that people sponsoring terror are not non entities but disgruntled fellows leaving in the afternoon of their political career,with no regard to the value and dignity of human life.For instance Scotlandyard will not tell us why ritual killers are changing into cats.The emerging facts are quickly pointing to political sponsored terror aimed at saturating the political atmosphere with so much acrimony and cause a brake down of rule of law.We urge the police to act proffessional like you have done in the past.

    No matter how much you feel be calm and let the law take its course unlike taking the law in our own hands. Any way rip

  17. Kasonkama reuben

    I suggest the government to empower the zns and zaf to arrest the situation wich is detrimentle b4 many lives are lost.

    • Richard

      if this bustards keep coming to our beautiful house’s, we will take law into our own very hand.
