Luanshya man found naked with kambwiliBy Joseph Mwenda on 8 May 2017
In these photos, a Luanshya man identified as Michael Mwewa was found naked with a hoe this morning after he dozed into deep sleep during his stealing mission.
Owners of the house in Ndeke township where he allegedly went to steal, told News Diggers! that Mwewa was woken up at around 05:30 hours in the sitting room with a kambwili between his legs, as he struggled to explain the circumstances that led him into the house.
“We asked him what he was doing in the house, he said ‘I was at a club, they have beaten me and they took my clothes’ but one of the people identified him as a hardcore criminal who was in Katombolya prisons for children,” the source narrated.
Residents gathered to witness the bizarre incident and after interrogations, they drove the suspect, in his birthday suit, to Luanshya Central Police where he was detained.
“When we went to the police, the officers opened the docket and advised us to go back at 08:30 so that we can check properly if he had stolen anything from the house,” Mutale Mulenga who witnessed the incident explained.
When we came back, we found that he entered through the window and his clothes where outside, so he intentionally removed his clothes to create some charms. He had been wearing coffee brown Timberland shoes, white ripped jeans, a white sweatshirt and two boxer shots.”
He said it was clear that Mwewa kept the hoe between his legs while taking a nap behind a sofa, so that he could attack anyone who confronted him in the night.
