Kabwe,  May , 20, 2013, ZANIS–Two children were burnt to ashes

which happened in his constituency around 02 hours today

involved a mother and her two children.


Mr Mapoka said the family could have left a lit candle when it

retired to sleep.

one  year eight months old baby James Nakaonga of the same family.


He said the mother of the children Bedsheba Liche, 25, survived death

to assist the family to bury the two children.
