Ndola Couple Killed ‘Mob Ascends On Them, & later Pile Tyres on them before setting them Ablaze’

IRATE residents in Ndola have burnt to death an elderly couple suspected to have been practising witchcraft.
The residents in Kasongo area on the Ndola-Kitwe dual carriageway pounced on Jungo Chisola, 80 and his wife Mutengu Sankananu whom they beat until they passed out and later piled tyres on them before setting them ablaze.
Mr Chisola’s body was burnt beyond recognition, while his wife had her right leg dislodged from the body and intestines pulled out.
Copperbelt Police chief Mary Tembo, who confirmed the incident, said two people had since been arrested and would appear in court soon for murder.
She said arrangements had been made to carry out a postmortem at the crime scene.
The residents accused the couple of being behind the death of a man who died in a road traffic accident.
Last week, Deputy Inspector General of Police Solomon Jere warned members of the public against taking the law into their own hands.
