Police in Mazabuka have arrested a 32 year- old man identified as Bargner Siamayuma in connection with the murder of man identified as Hartman Michelo aged between 42 and 45.
Michelo was allegedly stabbed on Tuesday at a drinking spree of illicit brew locally known as Kachasu at Airstrip Compound.
It is alleged that the victim Hartman Micheelo was drinking alcohol with the accused person Bargner Siamayuwa at Airstrip Compound and the suspect asked the victim to also buy a round of beer, but Michelo did not have money to do so.
This led to a misunderstanding between the two prompting Siamayuma to produce a knife and stabbed Michelo in the neck and he died instantly.
The suspect was apprehended by irate members of the public who beat him up and nearly set him ablaze but was only rescued by Police who rushed to the scene.
Meanwhile, Police in Chinsali are looking for suspects behind the death of a 76 year- old man identified as Bernard Kanekwa of Kawama village, Chief Mpumba whose body was found in his field.
The deceased was suspected to be a wizard after one of his relatives died in October, 2018 and was later beaten and chased from the village by the suspects whose names we have withheld.
This is according police public relations officer Esther Katongo.
