General News Chinese national gets two weeks community service for assault in Chinsali

A Chinese national, Zhu Yongjiang in Chinsali District of Muchinga Province, has been given two weeks Community Service by Chinsali Magistrate courts after he was found guilty of assault.

Appearing before Chinsali Magistrate court’s Senior Resident Magistrate Julius Malata, was Zhu Yongjiang, 53, a foreman at Musanya Construction Camp charged with one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm contrary to section 248 of the penal code chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.

Particulars of the offence are that on 14th November, 2020 at Chinsali district of Muchinga province, the accused did assault Edwin
Mungulube, 34, of the same construction camp thereby occasioning him actual bodily harm.

It is believed that Taser gun was used to assault his worker which resulted in Munugulube sustaining a swollen left forearm. The weapon has since been forfeited to the state.

And Magistrate Malata said as the court has found the accused guilty of the offence and sentenced him accordingly.

In his mitigation the convict pleaded for leniency from the court saying he was remorseful for his actions.

“I understand that what I did was wrong and am sorry, may the court forgive me, “, he asked.

Magistrate Malata said the court had heard all what the convict had said in his mitigation but that case he committed is serious though a misdemeanor adding that the cases of assault have become common and increasing each day.

He said the court has therefore, sentenced the accused to two weeks community service so that he can learn to respect the local people in
the same way he respects his co-nationals.

“Zambia is a legal state and the Law punishes anyone regardless of status in society,” he added.

Magistrate Malata further ordered that the convict shall do the two weeks community service work from 08:00 hours to 12:00 hours every day.

  3. A taser gun was used and his sentence is community service for two weeks? Has the victim sued in civil law? who were the lawyers?

  4. Chinese are laughing at Zambian justice – they will next shoot to death Zambian workers as have done before, all this is mediocrity of justice. Do that in China, you join a mental detention camp with 000s.

  5. I don’t understand why Zambian men are rushing for enlargement when the Chinese have small organs yet they have taken almost all girls in villages. May be even the tiff between the 2 guys arose from women. I think the sentence was too lenient because of the fact that he used a weapon. I advise the victim to sue for compensation. I hope it hasn’t left him crippled for life.

  6. Magistrates are too lenient when
    It comes to Chinese.Is it orders
    From the Top?Or is inferiority
    Complex?seen so many such cases.

  7. He needs to be sent back to China after the 2 weeks, which in itself is a joke. Zambia needs to send a strong signal to anyone that thinks they can abuse any Zambian

  8. Ayatollah only men in diaspora go for enlargement surgery because their things have grown small due to moving to cold climates

  9. “the court had heard all what the convict had said in his mitigation but that case he committed is serious though a misdemeanor adding that the cases of assault have become common and increasing each day” so the magistrate decides to give him two weeks of community service!!!! Does that make sense? The man should have been locked up for two years plus three extra years suspended for five years. I have never heard any Zambian sentenced to two weeks community service. Black Zambians are just sent to jail but for a Chinese a magistrate has to look for sentences that are hidden in the cobwebs of our statute books.
