LUSAKA High Court Judge Kazimbe Chenda has threatened to lock up Marshlands Consortium Director, Tobias Haanyimbo Milambo, for failing to answer questions in Court.
This is in a matter in which Tomorrow Investments Chief Executive Officer, Chanda Katotobwe and his wife, Felistus Kabwe Chibamba have sued the 3 Marshlands Consortium directors for the restitution of Ultimate Insurance Company, whose shareholding was fraudulent changed.
Judge Chenda threatened to lock up Milambo, after noting various evasions and inconsistencies when answering questions in cross examinations.
And in his testimony, Milambo conceded that Marshlands Consortium Ltd never paid any money for purchase of shares of Ultimate Insurance Ltd but paid in kind.
When asked to give details of the payment in kind that Marshlands Consortium paid, Milambo failed to produce any evidence of the payment.
Meanwhile Milambo denied that he was part of the people that forged Valuations and Deeds of transfers on behalf of Marshlands Consortium Ltd which were submitted to Ultimate Insurance Ltd.
When asked why he has not produced any copy of the Valuations reports despite all the cases including criminal proceedings requiring these reports to clear his name and Marshlands Consortium Ltd, Milambo answered that he didn’t see the need for the documents.
And on a document that is shows a forged signature of Mrs. Felistus Kabwe Chibamba, Milambo agreed that he had not brought any evidence to dispute the forgery of Felicitas K Chibambas Signature.
He also admitted that assertions that Felicitas K Chibamba’s Signature was forged is unchallenged.
The matter has been adjourned to 9th November, 2020 for continued trial.

A 31-year-old nurse of Kitwe allegedly raped while on duty in ward, police say

A 31-YEAR-OLD nurse of Kitwe has allegedly been raped by her workmate, a clinical officer while on duty.

It is alleged that incident happened at Care well private clinic in Nkana East while the victim was working when a clinical officer identified as Mathew Fwalanga took advantage of her.

Copperbelt Deputy Commissioner of Police  Bothwell Namuswa has confirmed the incident in an interview.

Mr Namuswa said the suspect remained behind to study after he knocked off from work.

He said the victim asked to use the suspect’s phone but as she returned it, Fwalanga grabbed her hand and twisted her right hand from behind, pulled her into the ward.

Mr Namuswa said Fwalanga then forced her to bend down and pulled down her uniform trousers and pant and then penetrated her.

“It is alleged that the nurse asked for help from the suspect to phone the security guard so that she can send him to buy food. It was at this point that the clinical officer took advantage of the victim knowing that they were only two in the clinic and raped her,” Mr Namuswa said.

He said attempts by the victim to shout for help did not yield any results as there was no one at the clinic.

The deputy provincial police commissioner said after he finished raping her, the suspect left the health institution and is currently on the run.

“We have launched a manhunt to bring the suspect to book while the victim has been taken into hospital for medical examination and treatment after she complained of abdominal pains, “he said.

This comes barely days when Zambia is commemorating 16 days of gender activism to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.
