South African police hunt for a Zambian accused of murdering girlfriend and son

Published

THE Zambian High Commission in South Africa has appealed to a Zambian national being sought by Pretoria Police in connection with a case of alleged murder of his girlfriend and son to surrender himself. Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba disclosed that South African Police Service (SAPS) has sought the help of the Embassy to help locate Mr. Banda. Amb. Mwamba has called on Mr. Abassy Banda to report himself to the police so that he could help with their investigations. The South African Police Service (SAPS) from Sunnyside Police Station in Pretoria, have opened a case against 28-year old Banda, holder of passport number ZN382769, who is a suspect in a murder case of two people. Banda, whose whereabouts remain unknown, is on 27th February, 2017 alleged to have set ablaze the house of his girlfriend at Barclays Square Flats in Pretoria. His son aged three years old died in the house while the mother died later in hospital. The mother has been identified as Jacklyn Manganyi, and the three-year old as Nkaceko Masauso Manganyi. Mr. Mwamba said Zambians in South Africa were well known to be of good behavior and good reputation and it was in this spirit that he called on Banda to hand himself to the Police. He said a matter like this needed to be handled well so that it does not tarnish the good image and reputation that Zambian nationals enjoyed in South Africa. “Our nationals have been known to be law abiding residents. They have been known to be people of exemplary good behavior and good reputation. It is in this spirit that we urge Mr. Abassy Banda to surrender himself to the police so that he can give his account and his side of the story,” Mr. Mwamba said. “Mr. Banda is assured of our support as he is deemed innocent before the law until proven guilty in the Courts of Law”. The High Commissioner conveyed his condolences to the family of the deceased and wished for speedy investigations so that the bereaved could quickly find closure on the matter. This is according to a press statement issued by Nicky Shabolyo, press Secretary at the High Commission of Zambia to South Africa in Pretoria.
