The Slain Female Police Cop was found with used condoms in her bag”.
“Sad Tyson died a painful death as police officers had chocked him with deadly teargas before he shot himself”
The Kabwe police officer Esther Mulobwa who was shot dead by her husband Pythias Tyson Mwape, a soldier of Chindwin barracks who later turned the gun on himself was allegedly promiscuous to the extent that on the material day, she was found with a used condom wrapped in tissue in her handbag, sister to the deceased soldier has disclosed.
Christine Mwape Mpemba, aged 53 and a resident of Lukanga in Kabwe said that her deceased brother disclosed to her that Esther Mulobwa was also drunk after having delayed to get home. She was allegedly found at the office after 19:00hrs by her husband when in fact her duty was ending at 16:00hrs.
“On the material day, Tyson was working from Mulungushi University and when he knocked off after 16:00hrs, he found that his wife was not at home so he went out and again returned an hour later but still found the woman had not yet returned and after the fourth unsuccessful check he decided to follow her up at Kabwe Central police station where she was working from and found her in the office around 19:00hrs. When he asked her, she claimed that she had extra work to do but this infuriated Tyson as the woman was apparently looking drunk and he got her so that they could return home together.
On their way home she demanded that he buys her some beer at Kwesu (drinking place at the Kabwe mall) but after only taking two drinks she began dancing like a person already drunk hence the husband decided that they leave. At home he told the children to go into their bedrooms while they remained two of them where after a protracted argument and tugging, the handbag dropped and offloaded a wet tissue on which a used condom was wrapped,” narrated Mwape Mpemba who also added that the marital problems were known by senior military personnel. After the handbag dropped, the argument got worse and that forced elder children to wake up and went at the seating room where they also saw a used condom with sermen inside. Tyson then asked the children to get back to their rooms. It was after that argument that the husband lost temper and shot dead his adulterous wife.
Ms Mwape narrated that her brother had on numerous times complained about his wife’s immorality as she was also still engaged in an affair with her former lover and father of her two children who is alleged to have been in Kabwe on the fateful day. Esther’s lover is a Zambia Air Force – ZAF personnel based in Lusaka. She blamed the police anti robbery squad for their failure to use civility to capture her brother. She said the police attached emotions because one of their own was killed. She further said that the police fired very toxic teargas in the house where Tyson was which up to now was still chocking the family members. Efforts to get a comment from Central province commissioner of police Joel Njase failed as he ignored the phone calls and query messages sent to him.
And all of Esther’s big children have told investigators that their mother was wrong as she refused to apologize for being found with a used condom.
