Police in Lundazi district on Saturday foiled an attempted bank robbery at Zanaco by three armed robbers. Eastern Province Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala confirmed the attempted bank robbery. Sakala said before the incident, police in Lundazi received a tip off from members of the public that there were criminals from Lusaka in town, who were intending to rob the bank. He says police then laid an ambush for the criminals who broke into the bank at 22:50 hours but fled immediately after realising that there was police presence. Sakala says that the notorious criminals left behind a bag containing more than 20 detonators, screw drivers, pliers, picks and other breaking instruments. He says police managed to identify the number plate of the Audi vehicle which the criminals were using. Sakala, who refused to disclose the number plate for fear of jeopardising investigations, says police have launched a manhunt for the robbers.

Unionised staff at the Copperbelt University have resolved to resume work following the appointment of an Adhoc Committee by the University Caretaker Committee to investigate the allegations levelled against vice chancellor Prof. Naison Ngoma. And the Unionised staff have since demanded that Prof. Naison Ngoma be sent on forced to leave to allow the Adhoc Committee carryout investigations on a level playing field. Copperbelt University Academic Union General Secretary Willy Ngosa on behalf of the three stakeholder Unions said the decision is an indication that the Care Taker Committee has studied the grievances brought before it. Ngosa said the decision taken by the Care Taker Committee shows that they have got reasonable grounds to believe that the Vice Chancellor should be removed from office on grounds of misconduct or inability to perform the functions of his office. “This also vindicates the Unions and shows that our concerns are genuine and not premised on malice hence need to be acted upon impartially and in the best interest of the institution. We,therefore, await the outcome of the inquiry by the ad hoc joint committee within the stipulated time frame as this matter is of utmost urgency,†Ngosa said He added demanded that Professor Naison Ngoma be sent on forced administrative leave of absence with immediate effect for an impartial investigation to be seen to have taken place. “This is because Professor Naison Ngoma’s presence at work may negatively affect the investigations. We hope and pray that the Joint Committee will seriously look into these grievances as they adjudicate over this matter of national interest. We therefore, await the outcome of the investigations. In the interim, unionized CBU workers will resume normal duties as they await the decision and recommendations of the Joint Adhoc Committee,†he stated.
