Lusaka ~ Mon, 25 Jan 2021

By Chris Phiri

The family of National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) senior prosecutor Nsama Nsama shot dead last month have demanded that the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court holds an inquest into his killing.

Mr Nsama was shot dead 23rd December 2020 as police were dispersing UPND supporters who were offering solidarity to their leader Hakainde Hichilema who was summoned at Lusaka police headquarters over a land-related matter.

Lawyers of Mr Nsama’s relatives, Mulenga and Wallace Advocates, have said in the request for an inquest filed in court that the death of Mr Nsama was unnatural and they want an inquest to be conducted.

The lawyers have been retained by Chaste Nsama and Katele Nsama, the co-administrators of the estate of Nsama.

“We have been instructed by our client that on or about the 23rd day of
December, 2020, Mr Nsama Nsama died of suspected gun shot, near the
National Prosecution Authority premises along Independence Avenue in the Lusaka district and province of the Republic of Zambia, His death was unnatural,” they said.

“In view of the foregoing, we are under strict instructions to demand, which we now do, for an inquest to be held on the death of Mr Nsama Nsama. Our demand for an inquest is premised on among other legal provisions, Section 3, 4 and 8 of the Inquests Act, Chapter 36, Volume 4, of the Laws of Zambia.”

The lawyers stated that for case reference, they enclosed the Zambia Police Brought in death certificate, Coroner’s authority for burial; and the probate appointing the personal representatives of the deceased‘s estate.

“We believe our application is in order and that you will expeditiously cause an inquest to be held on the unnatural death of Mr Nsama Nsama,” they said.

    The main culprit of Nsama’s death is H H why did he wait to go to the police for questioning until he brought in Nsama from Kafue to die an innocent person to die for the rich crook who want to win an election.

      Your idiocy is beyond belief

    • Governor

      Honestly speaking why Should HH be blamed for police brutality. Tell me you watched Jesus’s movies before how many people paid Solidarity to him when he was arrested. Let the culprits be brought to book.

    The PF police killed your relative and the president even fired the two deputy IGs for the police mistake. Just go and get your compensation from the government.

    You can’t say HH is the culprit. That case was active before the courts of law until yesterday when the courts of law ruled in HH’s favor. So why did the police surmone a person on the case that is before the courts? This is was pure political. Let the police take the blame.

    Any thinking Zambian can conclude the motive of some one waiting for that long without reporting to the police until he had arranged, the killers and the person to be killed then he went on to hire buses to carry Nsama from Kafue all the way from outside Lusaka.
    The blood of Nsama will not rest not in vain God knows exactly what someone and his helpers did.
    The police cannot be innocent as well as they were in the same plan to kill for Satan.
    The death of Nsama was planned by someone really planned in weeks the evil one will be punished.
