A man of Lusaka’s Woodlands residential area has shot dead his ex-wife after a fight this morning, police have confirmed.

Police say Kenneth Makina, 42, a teacher at Lusaka’s Nyumba Yanga Secondary School, handed himself to Woodlands police station after committing the crime.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has identified the victim as Charity Jikubi, 39, a Police inspector working under Kafue but was seconded to ZESCO.

Katongo explained to journalists that Jikubi was on separation with her husband and had come to Lusaka to collect her wardrobe from her husband’s home where a fight ensued. She said the suspect then shot Jikubi four times and also wounded his landlord in the process.

Katongo says the incident happened today at about 08:10 hours.

“It is believed the two were on separation and the deceased had gone to pick up a wardrobe from the suspect’s home in Woodlands that’s when a quarrel started and in the process the accused picked his 9mm pistol and shot the victim, four times while another bullet hit the landlord on the right thigh and he is receiving treament at UTH,” Katongo said.

She said the victim was pronounced dead on arrival at UTH while a pistol was recovered from the suspect, adding that the body of deceased has been deposited at UTH mortuary.
