Senior government officials survives car robbery but sustains injuries

By Nalumino Nalumino

 

Crime appears to be on the rise in the recent past in Kabwe, the provincial capital of Central Province situated about 138 kilometers north of Zambia..

 

This development calls for the security wings to combine their efforts and investigate the criminal elements involved with destabilizing peace and traumatizing the lives of innocent peoples’ lives.

 

The latest incident of the Provincial Permanent Secretary Denny Lumbama who was attacked on Sunday October 19th, 2008 by six armed robbers who attempted to steal his motor vehicle should make every Kabwe resident and Zambians insecure .

 

The senior government official who had gone to visit his grandmother at Railways Township around 18:00 hours was attacked at the gate of his official residence when he returned home.

 

The local police chief Brenda Muntemba Sichilembe confirmed the development saying Mr. Lumbama was badly injured, as he was beaten by the robbers and was only saved when an alert female motorist put her head lumps on full beam when she realized that a person was being attacked.

 

The thieves had a backup vehicle that they were using and when they drove off, it was difficult to know exactly the direction of their escape rout. However, the permanent secretary’s car was abandoned after the criminal on the run had problems with the immobilizer.

 

Just a month ago, a prominent businessman popularly known as TITA, was abducted together with his wife and over K100 million stolen before they were abandoned. The couple which is highly dedicated to their business suffered at the hands of criminals who may have even harmed their lives but it was not over unless God permitted it.

 

There are several other crimes taking place in this town which never knew crime. The challenge is: will the residents allow this situation to continue or they will collaborate first among themselves and secondly the security wings in putting a stop to this no sense.
