POLICE in Shiwang’andu have arrested two men for allegedly murdering a 50-year-old teacher of Chumbu Primary School.
Mr Francis Bwalya was allegedly murdered by Lawrence Malama, 20, and Leonard Mulenga, 24, while he attempted to rescue his son, Humphrey, who was involved in a fight with the two suspects while drinking beer.
Muchinga Province commissioner of police Auxensio Daka said in an interview yesterday that the incident happened on Wednesday evening in Shiwang’andu.
“Mr Bwalya sustained a deep cut on the head and it is believed a piece of wood from a damaged canoe was used in the murder,’’ Mr Daka said.
He said police have detained Malama and Mulenga.
