Brick-maker crushed to death

A-26-YEAR-OLD Chipata brick operator was on Thursday crushed to death by a brick-making machine.
Eastern Province commissioner of police Alex Chilufya said in Chipata yesterday that Clifford Kumwenda was crushed while welding the brick-making machine, which had been switched on.
“Clifford, an employee of Unisource Brick Making Company, was crushed by a brick-making machine and sustained a deep cut on the right side of the head as his head came into contact with the crusher,” Mr Chilufya said.
He said Clifford bled from the mouth and nose and later died of excessive bleeding.
Meanwhile, police have arrested a 35-year-old man in connection with the murder of a National Parks and Wildlife Department game scout who was shot dead by suspected poachers last month.
