Police hunt for thieving truck driver

Police have launched a manhunt for a Lusaka based Truck Driver for allegedly stealing copper concentrates worth about $80,000.

GOODSON MUTEMELA of Lusaka’s Zani Muone is alleged to have stolen the Copper concentrate for Zamfast Logistics where he was employed as a driver.

Deputy Police Public Relations Officer DANNY MWALE says MUTEMELA was on December 28, 2022 assigned to ferry the consignment from Kasumbalesa enroute to South Africa through Lusaka but was alleged to have disconnected the vehicle tracking system and switched off his mobile phone.

He says police were alerted and immediately instituted investigations into the matter.

Mr. MWALE adds that Police officers later discovered the Shacman Truck abandoned without the consignment along Ndola – Kapiri-Mposhi road near Kafulafuta weighbridge with the keys in the ignition.

He adds that Police have continued with investigations.

Mr. MWALE has since appealed to anyone with any information which may lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to any nearest police station.

This is contained in a statement availed to ZNBC News in Lusaka.
