Muyimbwa Charles, a neighbor narrated to us that they last heard councillor shanon talking on the phone while in the bathroom.
“We last heard her talking on the phone at around 9:30 am with some people we didn’t know, after some hours at around 1 pm, we discovered that her door was not open, we became suspicious” Said Muyimbwa.
Muyimbwa and other neighbors started knocking on the door while calling her phone but there was no response.
“We went and opened up the small window at the bathroom and we found out that shanon was lying in the bathroom. Immediately we engaged the local leaders who authorised us to break the door,” Muyimbwa said.
