Lusaka  residents  have  expressed  serious  concerns  on  the  continued instant mob justice on  people  suspected  to  be  thieves.

Joe Mbewe one of the concerned resident has observed that the country has sufficient laws to deal with suspected criminals and called on the public to desist from taking the law in their own hands.

Mr. Mbewe was reacting to recent reports of a man of Misisi Compound who was allegedly beaten to death on suspicions that he was a thief.

Another resident only identified as Jason urged the residents to avoid moving at night and also adhere to the security measures being undertaken by law enforcement agencies.
