Police in Lusaka are investigating a case of Obtaining Goods by False Pretences involving a Traditional Healer who is believed to have gotten away with a motor vehicle belonging to his client.
Investigations reveal that the complainant has a son with a mental health condition, hence he engaged the said traditional healer to treat his son.
Since he had no money to pay, he was asked to surrender his motor vehicle together with the white book as surety before the commencement of treatment.

This was contained in a statement availed to One Love Radio news by Zambia Police Deputy Public Relations Officer Godfrey Chilabi.
“He is believed to have fled to a named neighboring country, a manhunt has been launched,” Mr. Chilabi stated.
