A MAN of Kitwe has pleaded guilty to stealing cash and women’s suits all amounting to K2,200 from his employer.
This is in a case in which John Mecha of Kitwe’s Racecourse township pleaded guilty to theft when he appeared for plea before Kitwe Senior Resident Magistrate Prosper Mwila on Wednesday.
“Your honour, I admit the charge. I was given the properties to sell but I did not take back the money,” Mecha said.
It is alleged that Mecha on dates unknown but between September 27 and 29 this year stole K700 cash and assorted women’s suits valued at K1,500 from Christine Mumba.
Magistrate Mwila adjourned the matter to October 10 this year for written facts.
In the same court, a 25-year-old taxi-driver of Racecourse has pleaded guilty to assaulting a 30-year-old woman.
When the matter came up for plea, Robby Kapalu told the court that he assaulted Judith Sankalimba because they differed.
“Your honour, I understand the charge. I slapped her on her lips because we differed,” Kapalu said.
It is alleged that Kapalu on August 22 this year assaulted Ms Sankalimba thereby occasioning her actual bodily harm.
Magistrate Musonda adjourned the matter to October 10 this year for written facts.
