    This is crazy she stole k37,232 then she has to refund the poor man k30100 and pay a fine of k5000 which adds up to K35100 what kind of justice is this and anyway let’s also talk of the high taxes in Zambia most of average earnings in Zambia is k5000 but look at the contrast with the tax we pay it’s unbelievable the government can’t do anything for us without borrowing

    I repeat the judge must be checked thoroughly. Look at how serious the case is and look at this part of the sentence “In count two and three, Ms Nakamba, in each count, sentenced to six (6) months simple imprisonment but that the sentences will run concurrently. The jail terms are with effect from 10th October 2018”. Surely???
