The State discontinued the case on Tuesday 26th January, 2016 after Copperbelt Deputy State Advocate Nkumbiza Mumba applied that the case be discontinued when it came up for continued defence.
The duo who pleaded not guilty, are alleged to have on July 18th, 2015 jointly whilst acting together unlawfully obstructed a Zambia Police Officer, Inspector Lungu in due execution of his duties in Kitwe.
The two were expected to appear for continuation of defence, after Kitwe principal resident magistrate Ikechukwu Iduma had found them with a case to answer and put them on defence.
Magistrate Iduma discharged the case following instruction for the director of public prosecution DPP through Copperbelt Deputy State Advocate Mumba.
