Mukata to hang

MUKATA

CAROLINE KALOMBE, Lusaka
A SOMBRE and quiet mood gripped the courtroom as High Court Judge Susan Wanjelani convicted Chilanga Member of Parliament Keith Mukata of murder and sentenced him to death by hanging.
Mukata, 46, a lawyer and politician, and his co-accused Charmaine Musonda, a business executive of 2158 Lusaka West, were charged with the murder of Namakambwa Kalilakwenda.
Ms Justice Wanjelani, however, acquitted Musonda of the same offence, saying there was no evidence that she participated in the crime despite being present during its commission.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
