During killing another guy of Rwandese ethnicity after an argument, a brother and sister of that descent have been detained in Kafue.
Angela Letitsia, 24, and Emmanuel Nizeyimana, 20, are thought to have hired a taxi driver to help dispose of Dusabimana Furujotse Mukwiye Ngono’s body after keeping it at home. Dusabimana is Angela’s husband.
The two siblings, in the sight of Prince Himoonze,51 the taxi driver, chopped off Mr. Ngongo’s legs before they could dispose of the body in Mazabuka because his body wouldn’t fit in the car.
Police in Zambia arrested the pair after learning they were in possession of offensive weapons, according to deputy police spokesperson Danny Mwale.
Following an investigation, the trio—which also included the cab driver—was questioned in relation to the offensive weapons and blood-stained clothing discovered in a basin with what appeared to be fresh human blood.
He claimed that the two Rwandese, a brother and sister, eventually admitted to killing Mr. Ngono, a fellow Rwandese and Letitsia’s spouse, after a fight they had on Monday at around 2:00 a.m. in Kafue Town.
“Facts of the matter are that the body of the deceased was kept in the house and on Tuesday, around 23:00 hours the two suspects approached a taxi driver, Himoonze over the disposal of the body who after seeing the body of the deceased advised the two to cut the legs for it to fit his vehicle. The two legs of the deceased were cut in the presence of the taxi driver then rapped in some clothes and put in a basin which was later loaded in the taxi a Hnda HRV registration number, BAC 6256,” he said.
Mr Mwale said the vehicle was driven from Kafue to Mazabuka’s Magoye area where the deceased’s body was dumped.
“Officers were led to the area where after a search, the deceased’s body was discovered in the bush. The body was found in a decomposed state ,but facing upwards with a swollen head, neck and the two legs were separate from the body. The body has since been deposited in Mazabuka general hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem. The three have been detained in police custody ,” he said.
