Kitwe gangs at it again
Those notorious gangs have not been completely wiped out because there are others who are still harassing people as early as 20.00 hours. If you decide to walk in the night, they will attack you.”
A NUMBER of notorious gangs have emerged again in Bulangililo township of Kitwe where they are terrorising residents. But Copperbelt Police Chief Charity Katanga said she has not yet received such a report and promised to make a follow up on the matter. Residents in the area said that a number of notorious youth gangs had emerged and were harassing people, forcing them to be indoors as early 1:.00 hours. Davies Chibuye , who was in the group of Bulangililo residents, told the Daily Nation that people were being forced to be in-doors as early as 20.00 hours because they feared to be attacked by the notorious youth gangs. “Those notorious gangs have not been wiped out because there are others who are still harassing people as early as 20.00 hours. If you decide to walk in the night, they will attack you. “In some cases , you find young boys in the streets, insulting elderly people and the elderly people fear to react because if they do that, they will be beaten up,’’ Mr Chibuye said. And some women in the area have appealed to the Government to deal with the emerging notorious youth gangs because they were a danger to society. Exhilda Lungu said government must be firm on the emerging gangs which were terrorizing the innocent residents of Bulangililo ward. “These notorious youth gangs must be checked because it is from such groupings which produce rebel groups which bring confusion in countries. As a country, let us not worship wrong and evil acts, but put these evil acts to a stop,” Ms Lungu said. Kitwe has experienced an emergence of notorious gangs among them, the 90 Niggas, Sons of the Devil (SOD) and the Tokota Boys. The groups were wiped out by the police, but their remaining colleagues continued harassing and beating up people.
