By Oswald Sichone in Kafue
A 28 years old man of Kafue’s Greenfield area has died after he was run over by a Zambia Railways Locomotive Train in Kafue.
Kafue District Commissioner Gibson Spencer Sinkala confirmed the death of Gift Chidila to Kafue Times in a telephone interview.
A Kafue Times News Crew that rushed to the scene of the accident found Police Officers collecting the remains of Chidila whose body was cut into two pieces.
Sinkala told Kafue Times that the accident which happened on Tuesday, 20th July 2021 at 10:30hrs involved a Locomotive Engine which was coming from Lusaka to Kafue.
He disclosed that the accident occurred in Shikoswe along the rail line between Lusaka road and the road going to NCZ.
Sinkala said the deceased was walking along the Railway line with headset in both his ears which made him fail to hear the hooting from the train resulting in it running over him.
The body of Chidila has since been deposited in Kafue General Hospital mortuary awaiting burial.
