  1. He needs deliverance….he is possessed..not normal for a 53 yr old. Once a thief always a thief may that’s why he can’t give up old habits..

  2. How can you deport a person who has not even seen a passport.When I want to go to Lundazi I can walk or cycle and come back no one about a passport we are friends and relatives just displine as any one

  3. Good day Readers,
    it is very unfortunate that such an old man can do this,I don’t actually understand why,but let us first find out why he did this,what motivated him to do such a thing at his age.
    Let us not forget what Jesus said when the group of people came to him with a lady accused of being prostitute,they said according to the law this lady is supposed to be stoned to death,but Jesus said amongst you who have never committed a sin must start throwing a stone at her,and the time when he was writing on the sand one by one all the accusers disappeared,why?
    Because there is no one on earth who is pure,only God,that is why when dealing with issues like this,we should not deal with in flesh but in spirit (spiritualy).
    If we deal it with flesh,that is why now governments of the world are putting wrong doers in prisons instead of living churches,I have said LIVING CHURCHES, to deal with those issues,why I am saying this is because some cases needs God’s intervention as you know Demons fear Jesus very much.Therefore some acts are demon or devil motivated situation and if you put that person in prison,you did not actually sort out the root of the problem,tomorrow when he is out of prison he is likely to do the same thing.
    Be blessed.
