A Kabwe based man suspected of practising homosexuality has killed his lover. Mubanga Mwansa kicked the yet to be identified man on the manhood and later attempted to kill himself but failed though he sustained serious injuries. He is currently admitted at Kabwe General hospital’s ward 9.
Mwansa is said to have killed his lover, whom he was living with in Makululu compound after a dispute in the night leading to Saturday morning. After realising that the man had died, he attempted to kill himself by cutting his vein but the suicide attempt flopped. He was later picked by police and some members of the community who took him to the hospital.
Mwansa, a son of a deceased army officer is a widely suspected of practising homosexuality in Kabwe night clubs within and outside the former mining town.
Certainly, once he recovers the police will charge him for murder of the unnamed man but it is not clear whether they will charge him for homosexuality also as it is not allowed in Zambia.
