MAGISTRATE-COURT

Meanwhile, the matter in which George Nsonga, 54, who is facing one count of defilement and was scheduled to commence his defence yesterday failed to take-off due to his illness.

The Defence counsel consequently applied for the adjournment of the matter to enable their client George Nsonga seek medical attention as he was unwell.

Defence Lawyer Agness Banda told the court that Nsonga was un-well to commence his defence which was scheduled to start yesterday.

Mansa Magistrate Moses Mulenga granted the application saying the accused has the right to seek medical attention when unwell.

The magistrate has since adjourned the matter to August 23, 2022 as the day on which Nsonga will start his defence.

This is in the case of the People vs George Nsonga, UPND Provincial Coordinator for Luapula who is facing one count of defilement.

Particulars of the offence are that on March 9, 2022, in Mansa District, George Nsonga willfully and unlawfully had carnal knowledge of a minor below the age of 16 contrary to Section 138 clause 1 of the Penal Code, Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia, as amended by Act No. 15 of 2005 and Act No. 2 of 2011.

  4. Oh ok so HH can go to anywhere in the country but any other president from a different party of Zambia cannot go Southern province freely for fear of being booed. But the rest of Zambia accept A president from Southern Province. Interesting!!! When Zambia wakes up from this stupor things will be different,
