One male juvenile aged two years has been burnt to death while another one aged four years has sustained severe burns all over his body after the house they were sleeping in caught fire. The victims have been identified as Angel Phiri and Cleotus Matomola aged four years.

Zambian Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo, revealed that preliminary investigations indicate that the mother of the children Nelia Phiri together with other two women who she lives with identified as Violet Phiri, 20 and Monica Phiri aged 15, left the children sleeping alone in the house and went out clubbing leaving a candle on.

“They managed to put out the fire but unfortunately found that one child was already burnt to death while the other had severe burns,” Katongo says.
