Nakonde man shoots dead wife, lover in front of his childrenBy Mirriam Chabala on 28 Jul 2017
Police have arrested a 33-year-old Nakonde man who allegedly shot dead his wife and her lover in front of his children last evening.
Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo confirmed this in a statement.
“Police in Lusaka have arrested a 33 years old man identified as Peter Siwale, a clearing agent in Nakonde of Muchinga Province also of Lusakas Mean wood Phase 2 for allegedly shooting dead his wife identified Charity Namuko aged 30 together with another man identified as Andrew Chibesa aged 27, whom he suspected to have been having an affair with his wife. This happened on 27th July, 2017 between 18:00 and 19:00 hours in Meanwood,” Katongo stated.
“Brief facts of the matter are that the suspect trailed the victims who are both teachers at a named school in Kaunda Square to some place in Meanwood using a friend’s motor vehicle where he saw them in a romantic state. He then picked the two who he took to his home where he is alleged to have shot both of them dead in the presence of his children.”
Katongo said the man later took his kids to a neighbor’s house and asked them to take him to police.
“His wife sustained a wound on the right shoulder and right side of the chest while the other victim sustained a wound on the left side of the chest. The suspect later went to the neighbor with the children and requested that he be taken to the police. A pump action shotgun has since been recovered from the scene with three empty cartridges. The suspect is detained in Police custody while the bodies of the deceased are in UTH mortuary awaiting postmortem,” stated Katongo.
