Katete pregnant woman raped, killed

A woman carrying an eight-month pregnancy has been raped and strangled in Katete, Eastern Province.
Unknown people raped and murdered the heavily pregnant woman in the early hours of Sunday.
Eastern Province Police Commissioner Grace Chipalila confirmed the murder of Eneless Sakala, 29, of Katete’s Ibex Township.
Ms Sakala’s body was found naked with deep cuts on the forehead and marks on her neck. She also had bruises on her private parts.
The woman could have gone out on Saturday night before she met her gruesome fate.
Ms Chipalila said Ms Sakala’s attackers could have pounced on her in a different area but later dumped her naked body near Ibex Township, where she resided.
“This woman died from strangulation,” Ms Chipalila said. The body was discovered without any clothes near Katete Stores and the mosque.
Ms Chipalila said police had instituted investigations to establish who the attackers were. Zambia National Women’s Lobby (ZNWL) said it was saddened by the raping and killing of the woman and urged the police to quickly catch the criminals.
