Why Mukata, co-accused face murder charge


THE Lusaka High Court yesterday heard that Chilanga member of Parliament Keith Mukata and his co-accused, Charmaine Musonda, were charged with murder because they were the only people who were present when Namakambwa Kalilakwenda was shot dead.

Mukata, 45, a lawyer and politician, and Musonda, a business executive of 2158 Lusaka West, are charged with the murder of Mr Kalilakwenda, 63, who was a security guard at Mukata’s law firm in Rhodes Park.
When the case came up for continued trial before High Court judge Susan Wanjelani, detective chief inspector Mubita Moya said during his investigations, he found that the vehicle where the firearm was hidden in a basket under plates was being driven by Musonda.
