An anonymous woman in her early twenties was allegedly slain in her house in Lusaka’s N’gombe compound by her boyfriend.
According to the neighbors who spoke to Millennium Radio, the dead was cohabiting with an unknown individual who they believe caused the death in mysterious circumstances.
According to neighbors, the woman recently moved into her one-roomed residence in N’gombe, where she was discovered dead this morning and was last seen on Saturday.
They claim that despite the residences being too close to one another, no struggle or call for aid was heard, and that the body was located in the house only today.
As members of the community gathered as onlookers, the body was picked up by police at the time the Millennium Radio news team arrived at the scene of the crime.
And visiting the scene, Roma ward chairman Matthew Mulenga expressed concern that parents are failing to handle the girl child by encouraging them to stop cohabiting since it is inappropriate.
Mr Mulenga believes the loss of the young woman is tragic, but he is hopeful that the police will get to the bottom of what happened.
