—–A senior government official in Serenje district has appealed to the community living along the Tuta road to assist looking for a man who has gone missing after he was allegedly shot by a Zambia Wild Life Authority (ZAWA) game scout two weeks ago.
Serenje District Commissioner Charles Mwelwa confirmed to ZANIS in an interview today that Chibuye Chikola has not been found since he was shot two weeks ago.
Mr Mwelwa said Chikola went missing after he together with Lipson Mambwe of Mpelembe area who is currently admitted to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) nursing a gunshot wound were allegedly shot by a ZAWA game scout after they were found fishing in Kasanka river.
Mr Mwelwa said after Chikola was shot he ran into the bush and has not been found since then.
