Zambia nurse student named Mapalo Masiku, a 21-year-old girl, who was murdered by her boyfriend, Kaluwayo Mwika, was buried on Wednesday, December 16, in Luanshya, Copperbelt Province, Zambia.
Mwika, 29, committed suicide by hanging immediately after killing his girlfriend. It is believed that Mapalo wanted to end the relationship because she had found a new love.
However, this didn’t go well with Mwika so he lured her somewhere near a bush where he strangled her to death.
Central Province Commissioner of Police, Chola Katanga, who confirmed the incident, said Masiku was a second year student at Chitambo College of Nursing and of House Number 351, Mikomfwa Township in Luanshya, Copperbelt Province.
Mr Katanga said the incident happened on Sunday, December 13, within the nearby bush of Chitambo College of Nursing.
He said Kaluwayo allegedly hanged himself at Chito Area, about 18km from the scene of crime, Chitambo College of Nursing.
Police spokesperson, Esther Katongo said initial investigations indicated that the victim had a misunderstanding with her boyfriend who had just completed school at the same College.
Mrs Katongo said the suspect is believed to have called a friend to the victim to give direction to where the body was.
May the soul of Mapalo Masiku, the nurse student of Zambia rest in perfect Peace..Amen
