Home » Judicial » Interpol After Zambians On Zim Wanted List

THE International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has issued a red notice for the arrest of two Zambians who escaped in Zimbabwe after being found with explosives in December last year.

Luke Chisale, 30, and his colleague Jeremiah Musandu are wanted by security authorities in Harare to face charges of possessing explosives without permission as well as illegal entry into Zimbabwe.

Interpol, which has published details of the two Zambians on its website, said the duo was born in Lusaka and speaks Tonga and English.

The international police said Chisale and Musandu are also facing charges of theft and are wanted by judicial authorities in Harare for prosecution and could possibly serve the jail sentence over the offences.

The portraits of the two have not been published on the website but Interpol has called on anyone with information about the two to report to Interpol or the Zambian national police.

Zambian Police spokesperson Charity Chanda also confirmed the issuance of the red notice, saying the explosives were found in the hotel room where the two had lodged during their visit to Harare.

“They wanted to use the explosives to break the safe which contained money but they failed and just ended up stealing the camera,” Ms Chanda said.

The issuance of the red notice for the arrest of Chisale and Musandu brings the number of Zambians wanted in Zimbabwe to three.

This is after a red notice was issued by Interpol for the arrest of another 28-year-old Zambian suspected to have been involved in a string of thefts in Zimbabwe.

The man, only identified as Simulata, is said to have eluded the Police dragnet in Zimbabwe for a long time, a situation that has forced authorities to seek the intervention of Interpol.
