CRUEL! Congolese Burn Zambian Alive For Bashin 2 Of Their Own

CRUEL! Congolese Burn Zambian Alive For Bashin 2 Of Their Own

A ZAMBIAN truck driver has been burnt to death in Congo DR, forcing a border shutdown at Kasumbalesa.

The driver, who has been identified as Derrick Chanda, was driving a Mercedes Benz truck registration number ACP1329 belonging to Orodere Transport of Lusaka and transporting cement into the Congo DR.

Sources at the Zambia Revenue Authority customs office at Kasumbalesa and police confirmed the incident that happened at Lumada, 20 kilometres into Congo.

According to the sources, a group of Congolese blocked the road at a sloppy area demanding that the truck allows them to pass as they were going for burial.

The source explained that the truck tried to swerve and in the process overturned and spilt the cement which was looted by the same people, including suspected Congolese police officers.

“When they looted the cement, the story changed from going for burial and now they accused him of having hit one mourner and they pushed him back inside the truck and burnt him beyond recognition,” the source explained.

“So the drivers from Tanzania, South Africa and Zambia have all parked, the border has since been closed and as a show of solidarity, they are demanding that the Congolese border closes permanently and Congo isolated because of the behaviour of the Congolese. It’s barbaric…so they wanted him to give them money…the lorry boy escaped and we are told he is from Ndola and currently he’s at Kakoso clinic in Chililabombwe.”

Chanda together with his helper was believed to be from Ndola.

A delegation from Zambia yesterday crossed into Congo to establish what caused the driver to be burnt to death.

    This is very barbaric and uncalled for.
    Plz let’s not allow our emotions cloud our judgement. We can’t group every Congolese to be barbaric. This situation can happen to anyone.
    Bros n sisters let’s show restrain. N let the government deal with the offenders.

    God bless Zambia.
    Derrick rest in peace brother.

    The Bible says “Love Your Neighbor as you love thy self.” “Two wrongs do not make a right.” KK ALREADY TAUGHT US!!!!!!”. This is the time to call for restraint. Our Congolese brothers and sisters who live with us here in Zambia, are innocent of this Crime! Why then should we take our anger on them? LET US BE REASONABLE my brothers and sisters. One day we shall need Congo and another day the Congolese will need us! DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE A NEIGHBOR? LET US NOT BEHAVE LIKE FOOLISH SOUTH AFRICANS WHO HAVE LITTLE MEMORISE!!!!!!!!!

    There is no need to resort to revenge killings (unless you have a Congolese truck bearing down on you for no reason!). Let us be civil about this but also realize that this is what happens when we do not address situations when they first show in small ways. Now we are told a lot of injustices have been going on! For how long? This is like Andeleki waking up after 20 years to de-register a political party!!! Sounds familiar?

    The govt should make a formal protest to DRC govt and have those criminals prosecuted.
    Keep the border closed until their govt can provide assurance that our drivers will be safe. Or else develop a dry dock at Kasumbalesa and let them pick everything from there.
    But we should not mistreat theirs in our Land. It is these kind of acts which bring devine curses. Remember we have lots of Zambians in DRC.
    Ex 23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

    We can not hate all thew Congolese because of the actions of a few Villagers.

    Tit for tat is NOT a fair game. Ofcourse those congolese babarians need to get their share of judgement, but we should not sink so low as a nation as to behave like them. No! We’re too civilised to retariate in that uncultured fashion. Please, fellow Zambians, lets restrain ourselves, and allow the investigative wings to do their job properly. But the Congolese gov should also have quickly issued a statement to apologise for the uncalled for behaviour of their countrymen and women. Viva Africa.

    These our congolese brothers are very ungratefull and very cruel. How dare do they kill someone in such a barbaric manner.They hav invaded our country like no mans business without documents. I advise goverment 2 swing into action and deport all illegal congolese in zambia.They hav beaten the finger that feeds them.

  17. Pimpslim   July 8, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    truck drivers and bus drivers in Zambia a very arrogant

  18. Flame$   July 9, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    Do on to others as you want others to do unto you. if the congolese feel burning a zambian is right way to settle a dispute why should we treat them different. after all we have more congolese to burn here without documents.

    No Zambian trader is allowed at Kasumbalesa border MARKET (in Congo), whereas there are so many Congolese traders at our Chisokone market, they are arrogant, rude, cruel and FREE to trade in anyway. They have made brothels in markets. Are they untouchables???
