Stolen Earth moving equipment, worth K1.2 million, recovered


Police on the Copperbelt have recovered an earth moving equipment that was stolen 2 weeks ago from Sino Hydro Company.

Copperbelt Police Commissioner Joyce Kasosa says the front-end loader valued at 1.2 million Kwacha has been recovered from Mufumbwe district of North-western province.

She declined to give more details as investigations are underway.

Ms Kasosa also showed ZNBC News crew a benz minibus that was stolen a fortnight ago from Musina in South Africa.

The minibus belongs to Farai Mutelo, a south African national who was robbed at gun point.

The police commissioner explained that the minibus was abandoned after the criminals realised that they were being tracked on the Kitwe Chingola road.

And Mr. Masina commended the Zambia Police Service for recovering his minibus.

He has explained that he had lost hope after South African authorities told him that the bus was driven out of that Country.
