Music promoter and ex-boyfriend to Information Minister Dora Siliya, Mark Mubalama has promised to bring Congolese Rhumba musician Koffi Olomide before the Lusaka Magistrate court to answer to a charge of assault.
This is in a matter were Koffi Olomide is accused of assaulting Photo Journalist Jean Ndayisenga.
Mr. Mubalama is Koffi’s promoter in Zambia and explained that the suspect could not come to court today because he is in Zimbabwe for another musical function.
Mubalama has asked the court to give him time to travel to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo -DRC- to serve the summons on Koffi.
Prosecution Lawyer Gilbert Phiri informed the court that his client attempted to serve the summons on Koffi, but he refused to get them.
In response Mubalama has asked the court to give him time to travel to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo -DRC- to serve the summons on Koffi.
Lusaka Magistrate Mwandu Sakala has since adjourned the matter to August 23rd for Plea.
In this matter, Ndayisenga is privately prosecuting the matter after he was given permission by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Lillian Siyunyi.
Ndayisenga was allegedly assaulted by Koffi in 2012 in Lusaka and the matter was reported to the police on 2nd January 2013.
