Controversial artist Clifford Dimba also known as General Kanene has been remanded at Kamwala Remand Prison after being put on his defence in the assault case against a 38 year-old woman of Lusaka.
Kanene is charged with assaulting Modrine Chisenga after a dispute at a tavern in Chawama last week.
Principal Resident Kenneth Mulife found General Kanene with a case to answer with the prosecution having objected to the defendant’s application for bail.
General Kanene will have to wait until November 10 for bail hearing and will be remanded in custody.
General Kanene was four months ago pardoned by President Edgar Lungu after being convicted of defilement.
He was also appointed by President Lungu as Ambassador against Gender Based Violence.
