A bus driver of Lusaka whose identity has been withheld was yesterday killed in cold blood by a call boy in Matero.
This happened when the junkie call boy demanded for money from the conductor which he gave him. However, the call boy was not happy with what he was given and he demanded for a K1 more from the conductor. This argument escalated to a fight between the conductor and the call boy, prompting the driver to leave the bus so that he could rescue his conductor.
However, the call boy picked a sharp stone and threw it at the bus driver, which landed on his throat, slitting it open. He bled profusely and was rushed to Matero Level One hospital where he unfortunately was declared dead on arrival.
The call boys fled the scene immediately after the incident and have not returned since then.
