    How can three lives I mean human lives be lost for a car? How? and why? Has life become so cheap like that?
    With society morals decaying that fast there is urgency to introduce a subject in primary and secondary schools where humanity and morality would be taught. Without emphasis on these we would be hearing and seeing more and more deaths and robberies..

    Economic prophets, preach against these. These are real serious social issues and not the prophecies of people’s birthdays and winning netball teams that you are busy with? Political chiefs (Lundu, Lukwa) and political pastors (Bvumbwe, Gama) turn your attention to challenges that matter to the society most. Address them in your spheres of influence. Conduct studies of most common sins and package your sermons against inhumanity and materialism. Lead us out of envy. If the murdered family (RIP) was political we could have heard your loudest noises and bangs. Let us sound alarm for every robbery and murder regardless of who the victim and suspect are.
    Let us do something. Restore death penalty.

    WITH THE BEHAVIOUR OF KAMLEPO, one can see how this man kills a relation

  18. And the human rights bodies are championing for the scrapping off of death penalties in these situations

    1. zack ib says:

      And they dont even care that those dead had a right to live

    2. Adzonzi says:

      and they will just be silent………they only speak when the police shoot a robber and not the other way round…shame shame shame!!!!!

  19. Che nsomba says:

    Gone just like that? How does someone dream of wiping out the entire family just like that???No remorse. This man should also go. Naense apite!

  20. Che nsomba says:

    Zoona. Why wipe out the entire family of your relatives just like that without any remorse. Death sentence should be carried out on this person. Koma mwabanthu banyakhe mulije lusungu!
