Mukata’s Appeal Judgment Set For May 23

The Court of Appeal has set May 23 for judgment in the appeal case in which murder convict Keith Mukata  appealed against both his the death sentence and conviction  slapped on him by the Lusaka High Court.

In his appeal which was heard by president of the Court of Appeal Chalwe Mchenga, the appellant, through his lawyers, submitted that he was not guilty of murdering his security guard Namakau  Kalilakwenda, saying he might have been shot by intruders.

One of Mukata’s lawyers, Keith Mweemba, submitted that the police had a duty to investigate each aspect of a murder because “if they do not, the accused might have been prejudiced” and set free on a date to be announced by the Court of Appeal.

But the state argued that Mukata, who was UPND Chilanga Member of Parliament at the time, was connected to the shooting of the Kalilakwanda.

The state asked the court to dismiss the case and uphold the sentence.

    Now What Is The Benefit Of Sentencing Someone To Be Hunged Or Life Imprisoment When The Children Of The Dead Person Are Not Taken Care Of? Mulekwata Amano Guyz In Your Judgements, Let The Offender Be Responsible For Whatever The Needs Of That Family That Has Lost A Parent In That Manner Than Packing The Causer Of That Problem In Maxmum Prison Awaiting Death With Free Food, Its Pointless. As At Now Who Is Helping Those Children Left By That Guard? I Think Inonshita Baleculafye When Mukata Is Safe In Mukobeko, Nani Uushakafwe Pano Calo? Foolish Judgements.

    If you was belong to the ruling party their can withdraw your case now I’ve head in the statement that you are a opposition my dear you will be jalled.

  13. justice

    I think the best is to hung him so that his children face the same problems the children of the deceased are facing. He is very stupid. How do you take someone’s life and you expect to live on. Death on you.

  14. Razor

    He should have just appealed the sentence and not the verdict. Maybe the sentence can be commuted to twenty years but verdict remains guilty.
