A 56-year- old woman of Chisangano Village in Mpango area of Chongwe district in Lusaka Province, has allegedly been murdered by her 28 year old son.

Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Danny Mwale who confirmed the incident in a statement stated that the deceased has been identified as Ruth Nyanvula and is believed to have been murdered on 22 November around 23:00 hours near Mpango Secondary School by the suspect identified as Joshua Bwalya.
