A – 22 – year – old woman of Kabwe’s Kawama compound is in police custody for allegedly stabbing her 30 -year – old ex lover to death.
This was disclosed to ZANIS this afternoon by Central Province Police Commissioner Solomon Jere in Serenje.
Dr Jere stated that the woman by the name of Bupe Mupeta has been charged for murder contrary to section 200 of the penal code after she stabbed her 30 – year – old ex lover Willie Zimba.
The Police Commissioner said the incident occurred on Friday evening when the deceased Zimba who is said to have been coming from a
drinking spree approached Mupeta, who is married to another man and demanded for sex which the lady declined to offer him.
He said that while in a relationship with Zimba, Mupeta found a man and got married but Willie Zimba insisted that the relationship
continues with her even though she was married as he still loved her but that Mupeta constantly declined to his sexual advances.
Dr Jere said on Friday, while Mupeta was at home chopping vegetables, the drunken Zimba approached her demanding for sex and when she
refused, he hit her with a bottle and in her defence the irate Mupeta got a knife and stabbed him.
Dr Jere said Zimba was later around 14:00 hours rushed to Kabwe General Hospital but unfortunately it was too late for the hospital to
serve his life.
He said Zimba’s body is lying at Kabwe General Hospital mortuary awaiting a postmortem while Mupeta who has since been charged with
murder, is currently detained at the police station.
