Former minister who shot opposition supporters to appear in court

Former Health Deputy Minister, Solomon Musonda is on Monday next week expected to appear before the Kabwe High Court for plea.

This is in the matter where Dr Musonda, who is also Chitambo MP, is charged of causing bodily harm with intent to maim, disfigure or disable, contrary to the laws of Zambia.

ZNBC’s reports that Dr MUSONDA was arrested in June for allegedly shooting a PF supporter, JACKSON MUSAKA in SERENJE.

He earlier pleaded not guilty to the charge before LUSAKA Chief Resident Magistrate, Charles Kafunda.

Magistrate Kafunda later transferred the case to the Serenje Magistrate Court which committed Dr Musonda to the High Court in Kabwe.

This followed a recommendation by the Director of Public Prosecution, Chalwe Muchanga that the case be prosecuted by the High Court.
