POLICE in Chipata have instituted investigations into the death of a Malawian who was found dead in Chisitu Compound on Friday. Eastern Province police commissioner Grace Chipalila said police have not yet picked anyone in connection with the death of Chimwemwe Phiri who was found dead in an unfinished shop on Friday morning.

Chipalila said Phiri's parents were Malawians who were working at a named farm in Chisitu area. Phiri's father, Kalonga, said his son went missing on Wednesday and was only found dead on Friday.

He said he was deeply saddened with the death of his son whom he said was reliable in the family.

And Kanjala ward councilor Jealous Phiri said he was concerned with the increasing number of Malawians in the area.

Phiri said some Malawians, who came to look for employment in Zambia, were living in the country illegally.

He appealed to the Eastern Province administration office to look into the issue of Malawians who were illegally staying in Zambia.

Phiri implored the Immigration Department to do its work properly.
"Let the Immigration Department play its role because we have a lot of Malawians here, we do not know how they came here and that is not the work of the police but the immigration," Phiri said.

And a grade three pupil of Kanjeza Primary School in Katete district has drowned in an open pit that contained water.

Chipalila confirmed the death of Shadreck Miti, a pupil at Kanjeza School in chief Kawaza's area, who drowned on Tuesday.
