Two shot dead


TWO residents in Kapasa Township in Lusaka have been shot dead by Zambia National Service (ZNS) personnel who were carrying out an eviction exercise.
The third person was rushed to Levy Mwanawasa Hospital in a critical condition after sustaining a gunshot wound on his left leg.
According to eye witnesses found on the scene, the two men who had been killed were among others who resisted to be moved from the area by ZNS soldiers who had sealed off Kapasa Township near Kenneth Kaunda International Airport.
The eviction exercise sparked a riot by squatters who charged at the officers in an incident which lasted for about three hours.
Acting police spokesperson Charity Chanda said she had ‘scanty’ information about the shooting.
“I have received information by officers who rushed there this morning but I am still waiting for more information. Right now, I only have scanty information,” she said.
