The deceased was then admitted to Kasama General Hospital where he later died the following day.


Ms Katanga added that a post-mortem conducted revealed that Mr Banda died due to head injuries sustained on the forehead and will be put to rest today in Lusaka.


She said police were still looking for Simwanza who is still on the run.
