A WOMAN who assaulted a four-year-old boy who trespassed on her home in Ndola’s Ndeke Township on New Year’s Day has been sentenced to five years simple imprisonment.
The Ndola Magistrate’s Court found Madrine Numwa, 40, an MTN employee, guilty of assault on a child.
When the matter came up yesterday, Magistrate Changa Chitabo convicted Numwa after the State proved its case
