- Updated: July 15, 2012
Police are closing in on people suspected to have slain National Institute for Public Administration (NIPA) student Ruth Mbandu.
The Zambia Police Service has stated that investigations in the case in which, Ruth Mbangu, was murdered in unclear circumstance have reached an advanced stage as police had gotten strong links which they were following.
In a telephone interview with Mwebantu New Media, Zambia Police Service Deputy Public Relations officer Charity Chanda confirmed that police are still investigating the murder case and that a post-mortem that was conducted would help with the investigations.
Meanwhile Ms Chanda has appealed to members of the public to help find the perpetrators so that they are brought to book.
The naked body of the 19-year-old girl was discovered dumped near her home in Emmasdale, Lusaka at House Number 33/11 without the facial skin, eyes and ears removed.
And in a statement released yesterday, Ms Chanda confirmed the body was found at house number 33/11 with the facial skin, eyes and ears removed.
“Police visited the scene and preliminary investigations show that a hard object might have been used to hit her on the head. We suspect that the murder took place at a different place and the body was just dumped there. There were no signs of a struggle and the amount of
blood found at the scene was little,” she said.
Ms Chanda said a pair of flip-flops and underwear was found at the scene and that police have already conducted a post-mortem to help with investigations.
According to the deceased’s mother Victoria Mbangu, a widow, Ruth, a second-year human resource student at NIPA, left home on Friday to visit her uncle in Kabanana township.
