Palm Sunday: Lightning kills one, three in critical condition

One woman died instantly while three other people remain in a critical condition and are hospitalised at Kabwe General Hospital after being struck by lightning on their return from celebrating Palm Sunday in Kabwe’s Makululu compound.

The four, all congregants of United Church of Zambia met their fate shortly after the celebrations when some rain started. The deceased was dressed in a Women’s Christian Fellowship (WCF) uniform and has been identified by the congregants while the other three include two children whose condition is unstable and are admitted to Kabwe General Hospital.
