New details emerge on missing Livingstone Sunhwa

Livingstone’s sister Pride Sunhwa has revealed that authorities at St Mathias Tsonzo High School assaulted the missing student and banged his head into the wall until he could no longer speak.

Livingstone was being punished for an alleged offence of stealing sweets and snacks from the school tuckshop.

Speaking to ZBC News, Pride said Livingstone was assaulted in full view of the students just after break time.

She said authorities started beating him, asking how he gained entrance into the tuckshop, while smashing his head into the wall.

Selina Tadya, who is the mother of Livingstone and Pride, lost her husband almost a decade ago and was looking up to Livingstone to be the father figure for the family in future.

Livingstone’s father also died under unclear circumstances, while working in a mine in Mozambique.

No arrests have been made so far but the school head, Maxwell Sambona remains suspended, pending investigations.

Human remains believed to be those of Livingstone were discovered deep in a valley located some distance away from the school.
