The Mpongwe Magistrate court has found former Mpongwe lawmaker Gabriel Namulambe with a case to answer.
This is in a matter which Mr Namulambe is alleged to have assaulted Reagan Maison Njobvu a businessman of shaka investment farms.
When the case came up for trial, the arresting Officer Cosmas Katebe produced a medical report which stated that the complainant sustained a painful forehead and bruises in the chest walls.
In his cross examination, Mr Namulambe, however, argued that the complainant only complained of a sore eye contrary to the medical report issued to the police.
Magistrate Dominic Lesa has since adjourned the matter to 17 March 2017 for Mr Namulambe to commence his defense and organize his witnesses accordingly.
Namulambe, 49 of Mpongwe on January 8, this year is alleged to have assaulted Reagan Maison Njobvu 44 of Shaka Investment Farms in Mpongwe thereby causing him bodily harm following a dispute.
