Zambian Artists Jordan Katembula and Wilson Lungu have been taken to court on charges of cheating and forgery.
The duo commonly known as JK and Wile who were acting as real estate agents have been charged with cheating and forgery after they allegedly sold a fake plot in Lusaka’s Chudleigh area at a cost of K300,000 early this year.
It is alleged that JK and Wile approached a Chinese man and offered him land for sale and were paid the sum of K60,000 upon signing the contract of sale by the man who expressed an interest in buying it.
The duo was later paid K240,000 after delivering the tittle deed which was signed by the Commissioner of Lands and Surveillance General but later the document was discovered to be fake as the land was not available physically.
The matter was taken to court in July, 2019 but JK and Wile have never been to court except their colleague whom they allegedly connived with from the Ministry of Lands.
The matter which has been allocated before Magistrate Nsunge Chanda has been adjourned to January 9, 2020.
