State enters Nolle in cab driver murder in Solwezi District

General News State enters Nolle in cab driver murder in Solwezi District

The state has entered a nolle prosequi in court case in which three Zambians of Asian origin and their Zambian counterpart were jointly facing a charge of murdering a taxi driver.

In December last year, the four whilst acting together allegedly brutally killed Bowas Kyabene a taxi driver by strangling him with a rope and later dumped his body in Chingola.

When the matter came up for commencement of trial, the state informed Kitwe high court judge Catherine Makungu sitting in Solwezi that it was discontinuing the matter against the three Zambians of Asian origin.

The three Asians whose case of murder has been discontinued include Ponniah Subramanian, Naazel Muhammed and Ashok Kumar.

However, the state told Judge Makungu that it was ready to proceed with trial against Boswell Kapepe, a Zambian who now remains accused of killing the taxi driver.

    • This is what happens when you dont invest in modern forsenic crime fighting techniques like DNA labs.

  1. Crime control is very poor in zambia, police and justice system are very corrupt. Criminals just pay and are set free.
