In a story that can be described as stranger than fiction, a 17-year-old boy has died after he ate Nshima allegedly laced with a suspected love concoction.

The Nshima was prepared by the 14-year-old girl-friend of the deceased.

The girl has been detained together with her grandmother who provided the love concoction.

The incident happened in Kasenengwa District, Eastern Province.

Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, DANNY MWALE has confirmed in a statement, identifying the girl’s grandmother as ELIZA TEMBO, aged 52.

Preliminary investigations indicate that HOWARD, while taking care of cattle, ate the Nshima, prepared by his girlfriend, and later developed diarrhoea and started vomiting.

Mr. MWALE says HOWARD eventually became severely sick and was taken to Chipata General Hospital, where he died on July 4, 2022, around 01 hours.

Police have opened an inquiry file in the matter to establish the actual cause of death.
