FORMER Church of God overseer Bishop John Mambo says 2017 will be remembered as the year the nation saw a rise in killings between lovers.

Bishop Mambo said in an interview that spousal killings in 2017 were shocking adding that the incidences are an eye-opener on the urgent need for Zambia to engage in prayer for couples and those that are intending to get into marriage.
Mr Mambo said the murders that happened in 2017 raise questions as to whether people that engage in relationships understand the word ‘love’.
