Police today picked up a body of an unidentified man between the ages of 50 and 55 in Lusaka’s Zingalume Compound.

In a statement, Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo said the body had a head injury but all body parts were intact.

“The body was discovered at about 05:00 hours by members of the public near Egoli Lodge who later alerted police. The body of the victim which was found with head injuries was in a green T-shirt, Khaki trousers and in a black leather coat and has been deposited in UTH mortuary awaiting identification and postmortem. The body was found with all body parts intact as opposed to reports going round that some body parts were found missing,” said Katongo.

“Police in the area have since engaged the local leadership to discuss the need for community participation in policing since Mwembeshi Police Post which was gutted by members of the public is still non-operational.”
