POLICE in Mbala have arrested three women for allegedly axing their relative to death on suspicion that he was practising witchcraft.
Northern Province Commissioner of Police Charity Katanga said in an interview from Kasama yesterday that suspects are Elestina Nalumbwe, 66, Pelajar Nalupundwe, 32, and Rebecca Nankolombwe, all of Matanga village in Mbala.
The victim was Changala Sichula, 43, of Sini Chisesa village in Mbala.
Sichula’s body was found in a decomposed state last Friday in Matanga village in the shallow waters of Katompwezi stream.
