Mwaliteta’s houseboy hacked to death

OBVIOUS Mwaliteta’s 19-year-old houseboy has been murdered in Livingstone in unclear circumstances.

And Mwaliteta, who is Western Province minister and PF campaign manager for this month’s Livingstone by-election, has pleaded with all political players not to resort to murder in a quest to gain political power.

Joana Liakoka was hacked on the head with a suspected machete in Livingstone where Mwaliteta has set up base ahead of the February 28 by-election.

Southern Province police commissioner Charity Katanga said police would wait for postmortem results before making a conclusion on Liakoka’s murder.

Katanga, who visited the Batoka mortuary and the murder scene, said there was no indication of an accident.

“We shall, however, wait for proper results (post-mortem) before we can say much,” said Katanga.
