Court Hears Plot to Kill Mpezeni through Witchcraft

The prime suspect in the alleged plot to kill Paramount Chief Mpezeni through witchcraft has suffered a setback with his lawyer asking to be recused from the case for professional reasons.

Senior Legal Aid counsel John Phiri has applied to recuse himself from defending Zenasi Dube who is charged with conspiracy to kill the Mpezeni through witchcraft.

Phiri asked the court to adjourn the matter to the next High Court session to allow the accused find another lawyer.

Lusaka High Court Judge William Mweemba who is currently conducting sessions in Chipata granted the application and extended Dube’s bail.

Particulars of the offence are that Dube of Mwami border area, on 25

January, 2018 jointly and whilst acting together with another person unknown did conspire with intent to kill by means of witchcraft one David Jere, the current Paramount Chief Mpezeni.

Several headmen from Mpezeni’s area were in court when the matter came up but the Paramount Chief Mpezeni was not in court.

Mr. Dube, please have respect for the royal highness. traditionally, that is a terrible and dangerous issue. you are playing in the lion’s jaws. I don’t believe in witchcraft but I know it exists. you are even lucky to be alive up to now. you are playing with fire ba Dube. namyumfwilo uluse mbuya. any way you know what you are doing, let me not down grade you because that trade is not my area. ukose mudala pali nkani apa.
