17-year-old dies from suspected love portion.

Love portion gone bad

A 14-year-old girl from Eastern Province has found herself in jail for trying to make her 17-year-old boyfriend’madly’ in love with her by administering a ‘love mixture’ in his nshima that allegedly killed him.

Eliza Tembo, the 52-year-old grandmother who is thought to have given the little girl the love potion, is also reported to be in custody alongside the juvenile.

Investigations have shown, according to Zambia Police deputy spokesperson Danny Mwale, that the victim was tending to animals on July 1 of this year when the suspect made nshima for him and his buddy.

“After watching his companion consume a chunk of nshima, the deceased told him to stop, saying that his girlfriend had made enough food for just him.

Before they both experienced diarrhea and began vomiting in the evening, the two young boys kept caring for livestock. The gravely injured victim was sent to Chipata General Hospital, where he passed away on July 4, 2022, at 1:00 a.m., “he claimed.

In order to determine the precise cause of death, Mr. Mwale claims that the deceased’s body is currently in the hospital mortuary awaiting autopsy.
