TWO brothers have beaten a villager of Kalomo to death following a dispute over a piece of land.
The brothers, Reuben and Cenisios Siamakwamba of Siamanyana Village in Chief Siachitema’s area have since been arrested and are detained at Kalomo police station.

Ms Chikwanda said in an interview that the incident happened on Thursday last week around 15:00 hours and was reported to police by the deceased’s father, Positive Hachitema.
