A SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD boy in Kitwe has been arrested for allegedly hitting his older sister to death using a pounding stick.
The boy apparently got upset over nshima and allegedly picked up a pestle and hit his 18-year-old sister at their Mulenga Township family house where she collapsed.
Sarah Mubanga, 18, of House Number MS 404, Mulenga Township was hit on the back with the pestle by her brother, Kelvin, of the same address.
Copperbelt commissioner of police, Mary Tembo said the incident occurred on Saturday around 18:00 hours.
After being hit, Sarah tried to run but failed because she was too frail after the attack.
Their landlord assisted the girl to get into her mother’s house but she later died around 20.00 hours.
She had complained of a severe backache before she died.
Ms Tembo said Kelvin had since been arrested and charged with murder.
He would appear in court soon.
