Gang plucks pastor’s eye

A CLERGYMAN from African Methodist Episcopal Church (AMEC) in Kalulushi has lost his left eye after suspected members of a gang calling itself the “70 Niggas” struck him with a machete a few houses away from his home.
Reverend Anthony Chikunga, who is also Kalulushi District Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) secretary, said in an interview yesterday that the incident happened on November 23 this year, around 20:30 hours, as he was walking home after visiting his uncle in Kalengwa North.
He narrated that as he walked home in the mine area, he saw a vehicle parked just a few metres from his home, and that four men stood nearby, while two sat on a sewerage pipe.
Rev Chikunga said as he approached his house, the people in the vehicle honked and flashed lights at full beam, and before he knew it, someone struck him on his left eye with a machete, while others beat him up so hard that he lost consciousness.
