Zambia’s Catholic Radio Icengelo reports that thieves broke into the St John Catholic Church in Kamfinsa, Kitwe.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Monday when the thieves broke into the church building and stole a tabernacle containing the Holy Eucharist.
Church speakers also stolen
Kamfinsa Dean, Fr Ferdinand Banda, said thieves also went away with two church speakers and an electric Genset. The Genset was later found abandoned in a nearby maize field.
