Barbaric Congolese Run Amok, Shoot Zambian

Barbaric Congolese Run Amok, Shoot Zambian

A ZAMBIAN was at the weekend shot and wounded when Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) nationals ran amok at Mokambo border over the death a 17-year-old- boy from that country.

The irate nationals rioted when word went round that the boy they were about to bury was bewitched by his Congolese parents, who stay in Zambia.

In the ensuing confusion, 23-year-old Frederick Mwandwe was shot and wounded in the border town by DRC security officers.

This came to light when Mufulira District Commissioner Beatrice Mithi informed Home Affairs Deputy Minister Stephen Kampyongo who was in the company of Copperbelt Police chief Mary Tembo during a visit to Mokambo border on Saturday.

Ms Mithi said the Congolese forcibly entered Zambia in an attempt to leave the body of the boy, indentified as Chabu Kanyinda, who died on Friday.

She explained that the teenager was admitted to Ronald Ross Hospital in Mufulira but when he died, the body was taken to DRC from where his parents hail for burial.

The Congolese ran amok when word went round that the boy was allegedly bewitched by his parents.

Ms Mithi said after entering the Zambian side, the Congolese placed the coffin on a Toyota Hiace registration number ACE 8999 which was at a bus station.

Ms Mithi said in the fracas, Mr Mwandwe of Zambia Township in Mufulira was shot and wounded by DRC security officials.

And Ms Tembo said police officers were dispatched to the DRC side of Mokambo to assist the injured Mr Mwandwe get back home but they were denied entry by their counterparts.

    these stupid Congolese are a war like blood thirsty people, they are always fighting and now they want to bring their barbaric nonsense into our county. F**K Congo! can Belgium please colonize these savages again because that’s the last time they were ever peaceful when they were controlled like dogs of the white man.

      Re you just trying to show how much hatred you have for these congolese? You should get the story right and use your brains to analyse before insulting. This boy was shot at and wounded accidentally when the security officers were trying to disperse the crowd. This could happen even here in Zambia. Were we not killing each other just recently in Rufunsa? There is no need to insult guys, lets be objective.

      Chachine where ever you find congolese you find trouble even overseas. they are out of hand!

    It is sad that life has been claimed. Tumfweko stops inciting people. Zambians and Congolese are brothers and sisters since before independence. There are congolese and Zambians who have parents from both side of the two countries. Stop this kind petty reporting.

      I like your comment my man, God bless you!

    Interesting! When i was young, someone was told to translate the phrase ‘jesus in synagogue’ and rightly so, he translated it as ‘yesu aleshina utwana twankoko’! Iam prety sure this ‘jesus’ who was battered fits that description!

    The zambian government should do something at kasumbalesa border because congolese are running the market on the zambian side instead of zambians running it. Most security guards on the zambian side are congolese.Let us sort them out

    Tumfweko block these demonic idiots trying to insult Jesus may the fire of God come on you satanist never again to insult the name of The Lord every time you insult the name of The Lord a the curse of The Lord

    #To much & #Kandi, your comments have no traces of a civilised zambian. Not all Congolese are the same not all zambians are the same. Last week there was a similar story in Zambia, would that mean that all Zambians are bastards? Think twice before throwing up!

    • mikey Kaingu   November 12, 2012 at 10:16 pm

      Zambians can be foolish at times that’s true but I have dealt with Congolese in various parts of the world and they have the same behavior always inciting problems.

    An amicable solution must be found that will bring about the bond to look at each other as brothers.They need us even in their stupidity so said just as we need them in our peace.Lets engange them meaningfully and prayerfully.
