CORPORAL Joy Shapela, a Zambia Army soldier of Chindwin Barracks in Kabwe who shot dead the notorious Mailoni brothers in Luano Valley last year, will be honoured during Zambia’s Golden Jubilee independence anniversary celebrations next week.
Central Province permanent secretary Edwidge Mutale said yesterday that Corporal Shapela, 29, will be among 41 people who will be honoured on October 24 in Central Province.
On June 24 last year, while in the company of three local people, Corporal Shapela shot dead Mika, Stephen, and Fabian, who were collectively known as the Mailoni brothers. But Feston Kalipenta, Oliver Kalipenta and Kalumba Chola, who helped locate the fugitive brothers, will not be honoured.
