Three people of Chief Sekute's area in Kazungula district have been killed by an elephant.

Southern Province police commissioner Charity Katanga confirmed the incident and indentified the deceased as Rosemary Kankolo Mapena, 59 of Mwilu village, Chuma Siabene, 53 of Siakantu village and Francis Mwangala, 53 of Mufana village.

"The incident happened on Thursday and according to reports, the elephant which was on rampage first killed Mapena around 06:00 hours. Then it killed Siabene around 08:00 hours and then... pounced on and killed Mwangala... They were in the field harvesting," Katanga said.
