Acquit me of murder, Mukata asks Court of Appeal


FORMER Chilanga Member of Parliament Keith Mukata has asked the Court of Appeal to acquit him of murder on grounds that there was no evidence linking him to the death of his security guard.
On February 28 this year, the Lusaka High Court convicted Mukata of killing Namakambwa Kalilakwenda on May 6 last year at his law firm, AKM Legal Practitioners, in Lusaka’s Rhodespark.
He later appealed against his conviction arguing that the court erred in law and fact when it found him guilty of the offence.
Mukata, who is being represented by lawyers Mutemwa Mutemwa, Kasumpa Kabalata, Milner Katolo, Keith Mweemba and Wilis Muhanga, told the court that Judge Susan Wanjelani erred when she admitted evidence which was not on record, leading to his conviction.
