The Ndola High Court has sentenced to 18 years imprisonment two out of the five Ndola women who inserted a bottle into another woman’s private parts.

This is in a case where five women were alleged to have assaulted Denise Mwanakumbwila and occasioned her actual bodily harm on December 1, 2018.

In count one, it was alleged that the five jointly and whilst acting together, abducted Denise with the intention of putting her in danger of being subjected to grievous bodily harm.

In count two, the five were charged with indecent assault on a female after the victim was suspected to be having an affair with the husband to one of the accused women.

However, the other three accused have been acquitted.

When the matter came up for sentencing this morning, Ndola High Court Judge-in-charge Emelia Sunkutu said the lower court was on firm grounds to convict the two.

In mitigation, Legal Aid Counsel Kenneth Tembo said the convicts were remorseful.

However, Judge Sunkutu said the wickedness among young people was shocking adding that the act offended and insulted the women folk.

During the entire trial, the victim refused to testify before court after she disappeared, a situation which has saddened Judge Sunkutu.

      CHISHIMBA Kambwili says change of governments every five years will cause political instability in the country. And Kambwili, the chief government spokesperson and information minister, has insisted that only Jesus Christ can solve the current energy crisis in Zambia. Speaking on Radio Phoenix’s Let the People Talk programme yesterday, Kambwili said it was not safe to change government every five years, especially when the ruling party like the PF had not failed. “If you are going to change governments every after five years like some tribal pundits are urging the people of Zambia even when the PF has not…

  3. “However, Judge Sunkutu said the wickedness among young people was shocking adding that the act offended and insulted the women folk” – the Judge needs to be specific and call out young women instead of generalizing young people like she is disappointed that such a barbaric act was not performed by young men.

  4. …just send the two women to national service or prison correctional services for a few months, they don’t deserve all that. We have to teach our young how to survive in our current poverty situations and NOT kill them mentally!

  9. Mother jailed for dumping

    ELIZABETH CHATUVELA, Mongu
    “THE Mongu High Court has sentenced a 24-year-old woman of Mongu to 12 months simple imprisonment for attempted infanticide.
    Lusaka judge Justice Sharon Newa sent Kapanda Ngongolo to the correctional facility for a year for attempting to kill her child, who she dumped in a pit latrine.
    Ngongolo pleaded guilty to the offence”
    This one who attempted to kill an innocent baby is jailed 1 year but women who mistreated an offender are jailed 18 years. How fair is this? You have killed them. I am disappointed with NGO CC for supporting this. The offender was guilt that is why she disappeared. Reduce the sentence to one year. 18 years is death sentence! It is not fair.
