Court commits owner of 10 killers to High Court


A CHINESE national whose 10 dogs mauled a 13-year old girl to death has been committed to the High Court for trial by the Lusaka magistrates’ Court.

Shi Yaming of New Kasama Farm no. 289 a director of Kingo farm is charged with manslaughter.

It is alleged that Yaming on November 8, 2023 caused the death of Sharon Banda when he failed to restrain his vicious dogs.

The accused had the charge explained to him by magistrate Mwandu Sakala who committed him to the High Court for trial as manslaughter is not triable by the Subordinate Court.

Yaming’s lawyer Newman Muyatwa asked the Court to admit his client to bail but magistrate Sakala directed that the application should be made before the High Court.

Over a month ago, a 13-year old was attacked by a pack of dogs at Kingo farm around 05:00 as she made her way to the toilet.

Before the victim could reach the toilet, she was attacked by 10 growling aggressive dogs that attacked and mauled her to death.

Allan Banda, who woke up to the sad news of his daughter’s passing reported the incident to the Marcopolo Police Post and the pet owner Yaming was apprehended.
