THE Kitwe High Court has ordered a medical examination to determine the age of one of the suspected Tokota gang members facing charges of kidnapping, poisoning and acts intended to cause grievous harm.Kitwe High Court judge-in-charge Timothy Katanekwa made the order yesterday after dissatisfaction with the age-related documents presented by the boy’s mother.
This is in a case legal aid board counsel Mwendalubi Kapukutula applied to the court to allow his client’s mother to take birth-related documents to prove that the boy is 15 and not 20 years old as indicated on the prosecution’s records.
But when the inquiry came up yesterday, Justice Katanekwa said he was concerned about the erasures on the under-five clinic card.
