State asks court to convict Mukata


The state has asked the Lusaka High court to convict Chilanga law maker Kaith Mukata for murder.


This is because the state feels it has proved its case beyond any reasobable doubt.


In this matter  Mr. Mukata and his co- accused Charmian Musonda are accused of having killed a security guard Namakambwa Kalilakwenda.


The state has argued that Mr. Mukata was in possession of a gun showing that he might have shot the suspect.


High court Judge Susan Wanjelani has also  been told that circummultiple evidence show that Mr. Mukata might have committed the offence.


The state further argued that both Mr. Mukata and his co-accused were at the crime scene and some witness testified that they head the  gun shots at  the accused Law Firm.


On Mr. Mukata’s co- accused Musonda , the state urged the judge to use the evidence before the court since she opted to remain silent.


This is accroding to the written submission filed in the Lusaka High court.


On the other hand Mr. Mukata has argued that he should be freed because  the state has failed to prove the allegation beyond any reasonable doubt.
