Patient killed after hospital escape

A 30-YEAR-OLD man has been beaten to death after escaping from Kasama General Hospital in an attempt to avoid medical treatment.
It is alleged that Cephas Bwalya, of Chimanga village in Chief Chitimukulu’s area in Mungwi district, who had been admitted in Kasama General Hospital, sneaked out in the nude in the early hours and trespassed in one of the hospital compound houses.
“The suspect sneaked out of the hospital around 02:00 hours and entered one of the houses in the hospital compound. The residents suspected him to be a wizard and beat him. He sustained several injuries and died,” Northern Province Commissioner of Police Richard Mweene said.
