MONICA KAYOMBO, Ndola
THE families of the two police officers who were killed in Ndola on Tuesday as they attempted to thwart a day-light robbery involving K231,500, want
the culprits brought to book quickly.
John Phiri, family spokesperson for late detective sergeant Francis Kunda of Peter Singogo police camp, said in an interview yesterday that his family is grieving the loss of a father, uncle and provider.
“We are appealing to the police to hasten investigations into the matter so that the criminals who are on the run can be brought to book,” he said.
Mr Phiri said his family has been robbed of a pillar and breadwinner.
Martha Kunda, one of Mr Kunda’s daughters, said she has not yet come to terms with the death of her father who was also her good friend.
“I just collapsed when a friend of mine called to tell me that my dad had passed on. I never believed her because I was with him in the morning before he left for work,” she said.
Mr Kunda is survived by a wife, Enesi Daka, and seven children.
And Margret Chilubula, the widow of late sergeant Bernard Chilubula, 45, has also called for quick investigations into the matter and arrest of the suspects.
She said if they are not arrested, the criminals will go on rampage killing more innocent and productive Zambians.
Meanwhile, the burial of the two slain police officers will take place today at Kansenshi cemetery in Ndola.
