A 29-year-old Zambian police officer identified as Albert Kamasumba, killed his estranged wife, Deborah Kasakula before shooting himself dead after he learnt that she was getting married to someone else.
The incident was said to have occurred on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, in Pamodzi Township, Ndola. According to local media, another version of the report said Deborah left the police officer because she was tired of constant abuse.
The couple who lived together in Chifubu Police Camp had been separated for some months and Deborah had gone back to her parents in Ndola’s Kawama Township.
After learning that she wanted to marry another man in Kitwe, he went on rampage and shot her and another family member said to be her sister. “It is alleged that after knocking off from work today, the officer went to his wife’s house in Kawama and shoot her and her sister then later he ran to Pamodzi Community Police Post where he shot himself outside,” one officer told the media
