The Zambian national burned to death last Wednesday has now been put to rest in Nakonde District of Muchinga Province.

Simon Sinkamba was beaten to death in Mwaka Village in Tunduma of Tanzania by an angry mob. He was suspected of being ritual murderers.

The body of 24-year-old man was taken back to his country and buried over the weekend.

His brother Yotam Sinkamba claims Tanzanian police refused for a post-mortem due to the bad state of the body. It is reported the body had no both legs and it is not yet known whether those were chopped off or burnt.

However, the brother said Tanzanian police have indicated an investigation will be done to ensure justice.

The brother was with Simon at the time of attack last Wednesday at around 16:30 hours at Manga Area of Mwaka Village in Tunduma of Vwawa District of Tanzania. Both were attacked for allegedly being behind ritual murders.

The two brothers were speaking Bemba language.

Meanwhile, the Regional Police Command in Tanzania has refuted any ritual murders have taken place in the area.

In the morning uniformed and plain clothed security officers were spotted at the office of the District Commissioner Field Simvinga.
