Njoya T’s Wife Walks to Freedom on Child Assault Case

The Lusaka High Court has set free Njoya Tembo’s wife Brenda after overturning her five year jail sentence for assaulting her 14-year old niece with a cooking stick.

High Court judge Mwila Chitabo struck off the conviction saying that the magistrate misdirected himself in convicting Tembo’s wife.

Brenda allegedly used a cooking stick and a pressing iron to assault her niece with teachers from her school Woodlands B confirming the assault in their testimony.

Chitabo accused the magistrate of not having based his decision on a legal basis as the prosecution team neither presented the cooking stick nor the pressing iron as evidence.

The judge said that the evidence of the five witnesses was not collaborated with Njoya Tembo who double as Zambia Association of Musicians chairperson not allowed to testify.

    Mr Tembo,useless Tembo you’re aren’t suppose to be ZAMU president .
    you lack leadership in your blood

  15. Razor

    Anyway that sentence was just too harsh. A simple suspended sentence would have sufficed seeing that she was a first offender & at the same time looking after the child. On top of that she would also have to go for counselling as part of the sentence.

    It’s anfair how can the judgd sent her free?That’s bad act sorry o poor

  32. The Voice Of Peace

    This case is confusing now, judges over stepping each other’s judgements and the victim ( the niece) was not brought up in court so that the judge can see the burns and hear her statement. Judging based on the picture was wrong, secondly releasing her without clearing the public’s mind is a nightmare. Our courts have become porous to all impurities of the society, we no longer have confidence in most judges and their judgements, God is the only true judge and he is coming soon.

  33. Sydney Kambatika

    With such judgements but u still claiming to be a Christian nation.I really feel for that child who was being mistreated.let’s learn to be truthful my fellow Zambians so that we have peace in our hearts!!!!
