A SWARM of bees attacked a 66-year-old farmer in Kabwe at the weekend, leaving him nursing stings all over his body in Kabwe General Hospital.
Central Province commissioner of police Lombe Kamukoshi identified the victim as Jonathan Susu of Chilumba area.
Ms Kamukoshi said Mr Susu becomes the second man in Kabwe to be attacked by bees this month.
On May 17, 2015 a 93-year-old man identified as Abraham Kaseba of Chamanimani township died after he was attacked by bees at Chamanimani market.
In the latest incident, Mr Susu was attacked by the insects on Saturday around 14:00 hours in Makululu township as he was cycling his bicycle.
“He was attacked by a swarm of bees and he was rushed to the hospital [Kabwe General Hospital] and he is in a stable condition,” Ms Kamukoshi said.
She said Mr Susu also sustained a fractured left ankle in the attack after falling from his bicycle.
