Chinese murder shocker

ZAMBIANS have expressed shock over the gruesome murder of three Chinese nationals in Lusaka’s Makeni area.

The Zambians who described as unacceptable the gruesome murder of Chinese nationals have requested relevant government authorities to investigate the case thoroughly and bring the culprits to book immediately.

On Sunday, three Chinese nationals were brutally murdered by their workers after a dispute. It is reported that there was a dispute between the Zambian workers of the warehouse and the Chinese owners who confronted some of their workers on the issue of stolen money and items within the warehouse.

In retaliation, the workers allegedly killed and burnt the wife of the warehouse owner along with a young Chinese couple that worked in the same warehouse.

Confirming the incident, Police public relations, Esther Katongo said Police in Lusaka received a report of a fire at the warehouse from a member of the public.

Ms Katongo told the Sun in a statement that when Police rushed to the scene together with the fire brigade and whilst there, it was discovered that owners of the warehouses were not at the scene of fire and a further inquiry led to a search of their houses located behind the warehouses.

“Police spotted blood stains on the floor right from the entrance and a machete with blood stains was also found inside the house on the floor near the bed. A burnt body of a female Chinese national namely Hu New Cao, aged 52, has been retrieved from the inferno. A search for other two remaining Chinese Nationals has continued,” Ms Katongo said.

One more suspect was apprehended yesterday in connection with the murder of a Chinese national at Blue Star Company Limited warehouse in Lusaka’s Makeni Area.

This has brought the number of suspects apprehended to two.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has confirmed stating that the suspect was picked up in Ndola on the Copperbelt.

Reacting to the alleged gruesome aggravated robbery and murder, Zambian from all walks of life turned to social media to condemn the act in all its forms and manifestations.

Below are some the reactions of Zambian facebook followers on the Lusaka Sun/The Zambian Sun official page:
