26 Year Old Zambian Man Drowns Himself To Death

A 26 year old man identified as Lewis Mukuni of Lusaka’s Garden house township has committed suicide by throwing himself in a well within his yard.

Police deputy Public relations officer Danny Mwale says the incident is suspected to have occurred on May 9, 2022 when he was discovered missing from his room.

Mr. Mwale says preliminary investigations revealed that the deceased cellular phone was found in his room with a number of saved draft messages saying that he had accumulated so much debt in his life and that he had no means of repaying back.

He says on May 10, 2022, around 07 hours the deceased body was discovered floating in a well by one of the family members who went to draw water.

Mr. Mwale says the police and fire brigade officers managed to retrieve the body which was found tight around the neck as well as both legs with a rope.
