Two people have died in Senanga after taking medicine administered to them by a man claiming to heal
AIDS and other ailments.
Brother to one of the deceased people Pumulo Mulemwa told ZANIS in an interview today that his sister Musowe Moomba aged 34 years who was charged K 500,000 was allegedly given powdered medicine and injections on Thursday to improve her fertility.
Mulemwa narrated that his sister immediately fell ill and was taken to Senanga District Hospital around 17:00 hours but died later in the evening around 22:00 hours.
The other victim, 50 year old Mwangala Sebaba of Katuya Compound was given four injections at a cost of K100, 000 which the healer purported could heal HIV and AIDS.
Mr Mwangala also died shortly after the injections on Thursday.
Henry Mutanuka who allegedly administered the medicine on the two has since been arrested by Senanga Police and has been remanded at Senanga Prison.
The relatives to the deceased could not bury the victims today after medical staff advised that they could only conduct post-mortem on the two tomorrow.
