A 41-year-old Zambian truck driver has been found dead in a suspected brutal murder in Johannesburg’s Benoni area. The driver has been identified as Chanda Field Mwila, holder of passport number ZN 599530, He is of house number 11 Mapasa Road, Chilenje South in Lusaka. A statement by the Zambian Mission in South Africa states Mwila was found dead by Johannesburg police on Saturday May 13, 2017 in Benoni. “The deceased who was a truck driver under African Cargo Management (ACM) is believed to have arrived in South Africa from Zambia on Wednesday 9th May 2017 on duty to deliver Cargo for the company he worked for,” Naomi Nyamwali, press secretary at the Zambian High Commissioner to South Africa states. Nyamwali explains that Mwila was reported missing on Friday 12th May 2017 by his workmates after he failed to return from where he had gone to buy groceries for his use. “It is reported that the late Mr Mwila had asked for the Company vehicle to assist him with his local movements. “Circumstances leading to his death are not yet clear, however police preliminary investigation indicate that he was brutally murdered in a car hijacking case as the Company car has not been found,” the statement reads. Nyamwali states that the Late Mwila’s body has since been deposited at the Springs Mortuary in Johannesburg awaiting repatriation to Zambia for burial proceedings. Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has expressed sadness and shock at the manner in which Mwila met his death. Mwamba said the Mission will continue to liaise with the Police to ensure that this murder and that of other recent deaths were resolved and perpetrators brought to book.

…”We May Be Poor, But We Have Respect For Elders”, says BJ Ngosa. Celebrated Zambian gospel singer-cum-pastor BJ Ngosa has come off the woods to defend respected local clergy Bishop Joshua Banda and Bishop Joe Imakando following derogatory attacks at the hands of South Africa-based Malawi businessman Shepherd Bushiri. Bushiri calls himself a prophet and has allegedly used the pulpit to amass wealth. He is due to visit Zambia where he recently opened a mine, but took turns to deride Bishop Banda and Bishop Imakando for allegedly being behind the deportation of his spiritual father recently. Bushiri, in what many Zambians believe was disrespectful tone, warned the Zambian government and the senior Bishops who would be the age of his biological parents. The flamboyant preacher even went to the extent of challenging the Zambian government not to touch him because he is “anointed”. But young Zambian pastors have said no to Bushiri’s uncultured behaviour. “Bushiri should not be allowed to come to Zambia…the men he has accused are innocent and he has no respect for what they have done to make Zambia what it is. “Immigration offices should take this request very serious. We maybe poor, but we have respect for our elders. “If you can’t respect Bishop Imakando and Bishop Banda then you have no place in what they have given birth to. “What evidence do you have and what scripture gives you the power to insult our Spiritual fathers? “The same way you feel about your father so do we,” BJ Ngosa writes.
