A ‘Zimbabwean business tycoon’ and three other criminals among them a 28-year-old woman have been sentenced to five years imprisonment for theft from a motor vehicle.

The criminals robbed a security guard Francis Kunda from Zambezi Portland Cement.

The security guard was sent by Zambezi Portland Cement managing director Gomeli Litana to withdraw the money.

This is in a matter where Owen Msimanga 48, of house number 161 in Matero, Norman Nguni 47 of house number 1126 Chunga Lusaka, Charles Lunga 45 of unmarked house in Matero, and Ethel Lyambai 28 of house number 1772, Muchinga Road, in Chunga, Lusaka.

The three Zimbabwean Nations and the Zambian woman are charged with theft from motor vehicle.

Particulars of the offence are that the four jointly and whilst acting together did steal K142,082 property of Gomeli Litana.

When the matter came up for plea before Ndola Principal Resident Magistrate Obbister Musukwa, Msimanga who introduced himself as a business executive, Nguni as a business tycoon, Lunga as a vendor and Lyambai as a business lady all pleaded guilty.

The three Zimbabwean Nationals said they stole because they wanted to pay for their children school fees, while Lyambai said she wanted to use it for sustaining the family.

In mitigation, the four asked the court to forgive them because they did not waste the courts time.

But Magistrate Musukwa said cases of theft from motor vehicle were on the rise in Ndola.

“Cases of this nature are so high in the district and a custodial sentence is appropriate. For the first three accused, I sentence you to 5 years imprisonment with hard labour while the fourth accused I sentence you to 5 years simple imprisonment effective today,” Magistrate Musukwa said.
