THEFT CASE INVOLVING A KAPIRI MPOSHI PATRIOTIC FRONT OFFICIAL ADJOURNED TO 7TH JUNE

The matter in which Kapiri Mposhi District Patriotic Front Vice Youth Chairperson Chikalawa Zulu who is facing charges of malicious damage, theft and three counts for altering a false document has been adjourned to 6th and 7th June for continuation of trial.

This is in a matter in which 28 year-old Zulu is being prosecuted for stealing 28 rail slippers belonging to Zambia Railways Limited.

Also appearing before Kapiri Mposhi Resident Magistrate Obrien Katyamba in the same matter were Gillan Kabwe aged 38, a businessmen and Peter Mwabilwa, an engineer at Zambia Railways Limited.

Particulars before court were that between April 23 and 24, 2018, Zulu, Kabwe and Mwabilwa; jointly and whilst acting together, allegedly did steal 28 rail slippers the property of Zambia Railways Limited contrary to the laws of Zambia.

The value of the Zambia Railways Limited rail slippers believed to have been stolen is K40, 720. 

All the three men have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

When the matter came up for continued trials, defence lawyer, Jeremiah Sinkende from a Kabwe based legal firm Kabesha and Company sought indulgence from the court to accord him ample time to enable him peruse through the case record.

Sinkende argued that the charges appearing on the indictment were defective thereby making it difficult for him to defend his client.

He stated that his clients were disputing the value of the 28 rail slippers that are alleged to have been stolen, adding that there is need to attach value of the rails in terms of measurements.

Sinkende further contended that the manner in which the charges were framed up on the indictment had the potential to put him in an awkward position to adequately represent his clients.

However state prosecutor Michael Sakala objected to the application by defence lawyer indicating that the charges had been rightly framed and that the case had reached an advanced stage considering that five state witnesses had already testified in the matter.

But defence lawyer Sinkende disagreed with Sakala’s position on the matter, stressing that his clients had the constitutional right to be adequately represented.

Resident Magistrate Katyamba however quashed one charge of altering a false document, which will now see the accused persons face four charges, namely malicious damage, theft and two counts of altering false  documents.

 

The matter has since been adjourned to 6th and 7th June, 2018 for continued trials.
