Murder suspect in court

A MAN of Nsataneni village in Ndola indicted for the murder of two women has appeared in the Ndola Magistrate’s Court for mention.
Jack Kaponda, 35, told chief resident magistrate Paul Chisha on Wednesday that he understood the charge when it was read out to him.
Kaponda is charged with two counts of murder.
“You cannot take plea before this court hence you will only be coming to this court for mention as we await instructions from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on how to proceed on the matter,” Mr Chisha said.
It is alleged that Kaponda  on dates unknown but between December 31 last year and January 2 this year in Ndola,  murdered Nelly Kabunda and Edina Mutobola.
Mr Chisha adjourned the case to March 3 this year for another mention.
