Police in Chamboli Township yesterday fought running battles to disperse unruly rioters who run amok after word went round that police were keeping a woman suspected to be a witch.
The unruly rioters damaged motor vehicles including one belonging to the police.
Police had a tough time to contain the rioters who continued stoning police vehicles and other private motor vehicles in Chamboli’s K section area.
Meanwhile, a woman believed to be in her 70’s is battling for her life in Wusakile Mine Hospital where she was rushed after the unruly rioters descended on her.
However, police managed to apprehend a number of unruly rioters who were taken to Wusakile Police Station.
Efforts to get a comment from Copperbelt Commissioner of Police proved futile by broadcast time as her mobile phone went unanswered.
