Kitwe High Court To Rule On Tokota Case In October

By Paul Shalala

The Kitwe High Court has set October as the time it will rule whether the 19 suspected members of the notorious Tokota Boys gang have a case to answer or not in the three charges they are facing.

This follows the prosecution’s closure of its case this morning after the last of the eight witnesses finished testifying against the 19 suspects today.

When the matter came up this morning, Kitwe High Court Judge-In-Charge Timothy Katanekwa gave the defence up to 14 September to file its written submission and advised the state to respond by 21st September.
Justice Katanekwa said in his October session, he will rule on the matter.

The 19, who are mostly bus drivers, conductors, shopkeepers and unemployed youths of Kitwe, are facing three counts which are acts intended to cause grievious harm, unlawful wounding or poisoning and abduction or kidnapping.

They have been remanded in the Kamfinsa Correctional Facility for the past three months after their arrest as the three charges they face are unbailable.

Earlier, a Police Detective Sergeant who arrested 15 of the 19 suspected members of the Tokota Boys old the court that Mwamba Siame who is popularly known as Mayweather is still on the run.

During cross examination led by defence lawyer Mwendalubi Kapukutula, Sergeant Peter Mujuku, who was the eight prosecution witness, said investigations into Mayweather's whereabouts are still ongoing.

Mayweather is believed to be a top commander of the Tokota Boys gang and was captured in a video where he assaulted a 17 year old teenager of Mulenga Compound who he later forced to eat his own faecal matter.

During trial, the state presented the said video as evidence and it was viewed in court.

Meanwhile, Justice Katanekwa has sentenced a 56 year old peasant farmer of Chingola to 20 years imprisonment for having carnal knowledge of his own niece.

Passing sentence in an incest case which has taken over a year to prosecute, Justice Katanekwa said he was going to be lenient to Feneti Kayombo especially that he was an old man.

He described the convict’s act as irresponsible.

Justice Katanekwa said it was sad that Mr Kayombo took advantage of his niece at the time she was nursing a snake bite.

However, the Kitwe High Court Judge-In-Charge gave Mr Kayombo leave to appeal if he felt the sentence was not fair.
