Nyau fighting for life after being clobbered

A 29-YEAR-OLD Nyau dancer in Chipangali is battling for life after being clobbered by an instant justice mob for allegedly whipping a teenage boy in the neighbouring district of Kasenengwa, Eastern Province.

The masquerade, from Nyaviombo area under Chief Chikuwe, was beaten by a mob after he allegedly injured the teenager during a Gule Wamkulu performance at Chinthona village in Kasenengwa.

The incident occurred on Sunday when a group of Gule Wamkulu from Nyaviombo went to perform at Chinthona.
A group of seven Nyau dancers was entering the dancing arena when one remained behind and attacked a boy, whom he injured.
“The masked masquerade attacked and injured the minor on the eye,” the source told Zambia Daily Mail. “He sustained a cut near his eye.
This angered the community members, who clobbered the Gule Wamkulu.”

Sources revealed that the Gule Wamkulu, who belongs to a secret society, was critically injured and then unmasked before other members of the community went to his rescue… -Zambia Daily Mail
