KALULUSHI Municipal Council (KMC) is concerned with the increasing number of unexplained deaths in the district.
KMC spokesperson Beauty Undi said in an interview that 11 strange deaths have so far been recorded in the last eight months.
“We have picked 11 dead bodies this year alone. Most of the bodies are found with missing body parts,” Ms Undi said.
Ms Undi said the situation is getting out of hand and people are now living in fear.
She urged the people of Kalulushi to always inform police when their relatives go missing, as most of the dead are not identified.
Ms Undi said it is unfortunate that the municipality is spending a lot of money on burying unclaimed bodies.
She cited last week’s incident where council police discovered bodies of two people who died in mysterious circumstances.
Ms Undi said one of the bodies was found in a decomposed state, and had no hands.
