The Commissioner added that the police are looking into a recorded call that Kaluwaya had with one of his friends where he confessed to having killed his girlfriend.
It was reported that in the recording, Kaluwaya said he killed Mapalo because she dumped him for another man despite him putting a ring on her finger. The recording reads:
“I told her that let’s go somewhere and talk, we then went somewhere near the bush…We then talked about our relationship. She couldn’t cooperate. She told me that she has found a new guy called Patrick. She then told me that she no longer loves me, but she is ready to give me a child. She said she can give me anything. We then enjoyed ourselves,”
“Later the argument continued again because I was hurt, for her to leave me!. That’s how I strangled her neck, till she died. I then hit her with a piece of tree on the head. I don’t believe that she is still alive, if she is alive, then she must thank her God. I hope they will find her body. This is my last call, I hope that you will find my body, my phone is on, and the people who will pick my corpse will communicate…I’m using a small phone, no password…I’m gone!.”
