Murder suspect Shabu Benos has appeared before Lusaka Magistrate Albert Mwaba for mention.

In this matter Benos is jointly charged with the Mumba Mutanuka for allegedly killing her boyfriend Revees Malambo.

When the matter came up the defense lawyers informed the court that thieves had broken into the house of the suspects.

The suspects told Lusaka Magistrate Albert Mwaba that the thieves stole a vehicle and left some writing on the wall.

Benos and Mutanuka asked the court to find out how far the police have gone in investigating the case of burglary saying the thieves might have stolen important documents that are needed for their defense.

But the state objected to this application saying the issue being raised by the defense has no bearing on the murder case.

Magistrate Mwaba later adjourned the matter to the 6th of March for Mention.


  1. They probably connived to kill him for his money, gents let us not fall prey for these fake coulords masquerading as angels or they will finish us.

    • These are serious issues that every Zambian should be concerned with. Either UPND, PF, UNIP, MMD, UPP, NAREP or whatever party you call yourself. People are dying like chickens at the hands of both Men and Women and the kind of NEZ, Jay Jay and the rest are not saying anything. You are too obsessed with insulting Lungu instead of analyzing these deaths. This is the evil that needs the attention of every Zambian. Reeves was one of the number one sponsor of UPND but non of you UPND guys are saying anything regarding his death. You are busy talking nonsense about some paper owner who is owing Zambians huge money through Tax invasion. Your own sponsor has been killed in Ninja style but you are all quite. What is wrong with you?

  2. They probably connived to kill him for his money, gents let us not fall prey for these fake coloreds masquerading as angels or they will finish us.
