Chilanga Member of Parliament Keith Mukata and his wife Charmaine Musonda Mehl Mukata have been warned and cautioned for alleged murder of Namakau Kwenda.

Mr Kwenda a guard at Mukata’s Law firm was shot dead while Mukata and his wife were found with a gun at the scene.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo said that Mukata and his wife were cautioned and warned but police were still waiting for a postmortem report to proceed with the case.

“We could not do this yesterday, because the accused persons requested that they be Warned and Cautioned in presence of their Lawyers who only managed to come through today,” he said.

Mr. Mukata and Ms Musonda are alleged to have shot dead Namakau Kalila Kwenda, aged 63, a guard at the offices of AKM Legal Practitioners, his law firm in Lusaka’s Rhodes Park area.

The shooting happened 40 minutes after mid-night on Saturday, and police picked an empty cartridge at the scene, as well as a Pistol, with 6 rounds of ammunition, which was in the boot of a BMW car, registration number BCA 7262.

    • Keith will not spend any more time behind bars. This country is a joke. By warning and cautioning the accused, the police will claim that they have not charged them; a technicality that allows the accused to walk out of custody without having to pay any bail or bond. For the lady that killed her husband in Woodlands, she was charged and held behind bars until judgement was passed (selective law enforcement). What a shame. A rotten county

    • That’s how Zambia is a failed state. Mwaliteta has been jailed without bail and without being brought before the court since August last year for apprehending Kaffir Zulu with stuffed ballot boxes. Keith Mukata will not be charged with murder. At most he will be charged with manslaughter and he will then be released on the basis of self – defence. This case is not going anywhere because he is a PF snitch who masqueraded as UPND.

  1. Really sad…warned and cautioned for murder, where is this rotten country going under this corrupt govt …prison is only for the poor and opposition. I wonder what the caution was – ” Hey Mister please do not kill innocent people with your pistol again”

  3. In Zambia the rule of law is an unheard of animal. Tiz has just announced that under pf Zambia is at its most intolerant state with abuse of human rights and unfair application of law. It is sad that Zambia is now a case study of a failed dictatorship. I cry for my country.

  6. Mukateka is pf pretending to be UPND. The went drinking with Kapyongo. Kapyongo was with Mukata when he shot the guard. Murder is bailable if you are pf. Innocent people are being jailed for fake charges. I regret being Zambian ubupuba bwachila kuli Lungu chipumputu no brains.
