Man in court for murdering his wife for alleged infidelity

Rural News Man in court for murdering his wife for alleged infidelity

A 32-year-old man of Itezhi Tezhi district, who is facing a charge of murdering his wife for alleged infidelity, has appeared in the magistrate’s court for mention.

Justin Kachulwe, a farmer of Shikumbe village in chief Musungwa’s area in Itezhi Tezhi district is accused of murder contrary to section 200 of the penal code, chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

Particulars of the offence are that on 10 January 2020, in Itezhi Tezhi district in Central Province, Kachulwe murdered his wife, Fiona Mulube.

When the matter came for explanation of the charge before magistrate Keggan Litia, Kachulwe said he understood the charge.

Magistrates Litia then informed Kachulwe that the magistrate’s court has no jurisdiction to handle his case as it is only triable in the High court.

The magistrates then told the accused person that he will continue appearing in the magistrate’s court until it receives instructions from the Director of Public Prosecutions to commit him to the High court for trial.

Magistrate Litia has since adjourned the matter to April 14, 2020 for another mention.

Kachulwe is alleged to have killed Fiona after he found her with another man.

  1. “Magistrates Litia then informed Kachulwe that the magistrate’s court has no jurisdiction to handle his case as it is only triable in the High court”

    Why is above always the case, should these not be referred to the High Court at the first instance? …

  2. Nsimbi ever heard of due process? Anyway guys let us learn to have a bit of pride. If your woman cheats it’s either one of two things: you married a nymphomaniac or someone else is filling an emotional void left by you. As for me I ensure that my wife Regina is spoiled once in a while. In return she has been my pillar of support. I am not saying we don’t argue. However we respect each other which is why we have been together for Many decades. Kz

  3. These are some of the things we talk about, the, inefficiency in govt is our biggest enemy. Now there will be an extra cost of having this accused person appear in the magistrate court instead of him simply being arraigned from the start at the High Court. Efficiency will make life easier for everyone and can even prevent corruption.

  4. Why didn’t he just chase her? He’s one of those men who say: ” I would rather see you dead than with another man”
