Tokota Boys Found with Case to Answer

Eighteen members of the notorious Tokota Boys gang have been found with a case to answer and put on their defence on all three charges.

In the second count, they are charged with unlawful wounding or Poisoning Contrary to section 232 (b) of the penal code of chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.

Particulars of the offence are that the 19 suspects on the 30th of April 2018 whilst acting together with intent to injure or annoy, caused noxious things namely faeces to be taken the Juvenile.

In the last count the 19 are charged with kidnapping or abducting in order to subject person to grievous harm contrary to section 257 of the penal code of the Laws of Zambia.

The matter has since been adjourned to tomorrow, 9th October, 2018 for defence.

    Take them to correctional faculty for them to be adjusted. However, some of them might have been forced into the group. Let those if any is found go free but, with a monitoring eye on them by community members of their locality.

    Putting them behind bars doesn’t mean they hated. Please let them be taken to Mwembeshi Maximum prison for 25 years since they are still young.
