UPND’s Patrick Mucheleka and two others appear before the Kasama Magistrate Court

General News UPND's Patrick Mucheleka and two others appear before the Kasama Magistrate Court

UPND Deputy Secretary-General Patrick Mucheleka and two others yesterday afternoon appeared before the Kasama Magistrate Court charged with two counts of malicious damage and aggravated robbery.

The three who include Elias Mubanga and Samuel Ngwira both UPND members could not however not take plea due to lack of instructions from the Director of Public Prosecution.

According to the facts before the court, the trio is said to have caused the damage by use of force to three type-writers and a printer valued at K13.970 property of the Government of the Republic of Zambia.

The matter has since been adjourned to 30th September 2020 for possible instructions from the DPP

The trio has since been transferred to Milima state correctional facility as one of the charges is non-bailable.

Meanwhile, five UPND youths arrested in Kasama Tuesday night have been released on bail.

The youths who include Ron Chivube, Evaristo Mwenya, Steven Kunda, Emmanuel Sitikuso, and Steven Sichilongo appeared before the Kasama Magistrate Court charged with two counts of Assault.

Facts before the court are that the five whilst acting together did Assault Gilbert Mulenga and Justin Mulenga causing actual bodily harm.


  1. Aggravated robbery of a printer and type-writter by Mucheleka. 2 more weeks in jail.
    Mean while Chitalu Chilufya and his Indian colleagues of HoneyBees with tones of expired medicine empted from Indian storage warehouses, are there on TV announcing covid-19 numbers.

  2. Yangu baMucheleka. Mwebeshikulu bamfumu.whatever happened! You are now being treated like a common criminal! Yama, fimo infintu kuloleshakofye amenso. And follow the rightful procedure to complain. You are in our prayers though.

  3. why does this DPP take so long to always issue instructions?, it has become a norm now for political opponents to be punished at enforcement stage and not after judgement by the courts. people will languish in prison all for nolle prosecui to be entered. how i wish there was a way to sue arresting officers at individual level for wrongful detention.

  4. Quick at arresting the opposition but PF cadres, who are the real threat to security, enjoy the protection. PF cadres destroyed a UPND campaign vehicle in Kasama in full view of the Police but no one has so far been arrested. Let us all peace loving Zambians condemn political violence.

  5. What a dangerous modus operandi of bringing food onto the table for one’s beloved family. I pity Mucheleka, but he and the other goons should not have stooped so low to the point of behaving like bandits. Let the full force of the law take its own course to deter the would be evil perpetrators.

  6. Am told upnd were campaigning with one main player on red card. Whatever they get should have 2 percent added, the absence of one key player. This thinking may be not true. Usually a team on red card gets more sympathy. Maybe we remove 2 percent..
    Calculate what favours your mind.

  7. These are the thugs in upnd. Imagine every election having to deal with such savages. We thank our men and women in uniform for swiftly apprehending these criminals. We hope the full wrath of the law is unleashed on them. Remember the damage these idlots did will cost our tax payers. This is a very serious crime.

  8. Kaizer zulu be like a god in this country….time will come when you will be 6 feet’s under the ground and your children or grand children will suffer because of the pain you have thrown on Zambians… You think you are untouchable Mr Man…every second that passes moves you towards your grave……

  9. Tabbie we are all going to die. When every human wakes up, it means they are a day closer to their graves , including you. You must be very dull and hurting deep inside. It is not my fault that the party you support is not favoured by the majority of zambian. Zambian do not tolerate tribal parties. You will continue wishing me death while I continue living my life. I ain’t scared of death because I have achieved so much more than you will ever achieve even if you were reincarnated in the next life. My kids are educated and I will ensure that they serve this nation in future too cause I am teaching them how to be patriotic. What are you teaching your ugly kids
