Kalabo Central UPND Member of Parliament Chiinga Miyutu’s son Wamulume has been found with a case to answer in Mongu High Court for the alleged murder of an Immigration Officer in Kalabo District of Western Province.
This is in which Wamulume Miyutu aged 24, a student at the Catholic University in Kalulushi is jointly charged with 23 year old female Akamandisa Nyambe both of Kalabo District for murder contrary to section 200 of the Penal Code cap 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
In passing the ruling, yesterday, Justice Judith Mulongoti said the evidence adduced by the prosecution had established a prima facie case against the accused.
This is in a case in which Wamulume and Nyambe while jointly acting together in Kalabo District did allegedly murder 23 year old Kalabo Immigration Officer Amis Siame between 14th and 16th of December, 2015.
In his defence Wamulume told the court that he received a call around 21:00 hours on 14th December, 2015 from Precious Sinonge of Kaoma who told him to go and check on her sisters Oranta and Nyambe who reportedly were being beaten by Siame on 14th December, 2015.
Miyutu further told the court that he received a call from Akamandisa that she had been beaten and injured on the left ear of which they agreed to meet at Pilgrim School near Orantas’ house.
He said they later met at the school around 22:00 hours and went to the neighbour’s place where the children that were being kept by Oranta Nyambe had remained.
Miyutu added that he had never seen the deceased but just heard from his ex-girlfriend Oranta Nyambe that she was now in a relationship with Amis Siame.
In a statement that was given earlier at Kalabo Police Station by Akamandisa and read by the arresting officer Chanika Sallu in the Mongu High Court, it stated that Siame was beaten twice with a pot on the head by Miyutu.
The body of Siame was on 16th December, 2015 found facing downwards in shallow waters of the Luanginga River beneath a canoe that was covering the head and part of the shoulders.
A post-mortem was conducted and showed that Siame died from brain haemorrhage.
Justice Judith Mulongoti adjourned the case to today the 13th April, 2016 for Akamandisa Nyambe to give her defence.
Scores of Kalabo and Mongu residents are flooding the Mongu High Court to listen to the murder case of the Kalabo Immigration Officer.
