Kamba pleads not guilty to one count of proposing violence

PF Cadres
Patriotic Front Lusaka province youth Chairman Kennedy Kamba has pleaded not guilty to one count of proposing violence.

This is in connection to the violence that took place last week involving rival PF cadres in which one person was killed and several others injured.

Appearing before Magistrate Obbister Musukwa today, Kamba pleaded not guilty to the charge of proposing violence on 7th November in Lusaka.

Magistrate Musukwa has since adjourned the matter to 27th November and 10th December 2013 for mention and commencement of trial respectively.

Kamba has since been granted bail after his lawyer Abraham Mwansa applied for bail to which the state did not object.

Mr. Mwansa told the court Kamba is a businessman and a known Patriotic Front member who will abide by the bail conditions.

Magistrate Musukwa granted Kamba a K3,000 kwacha cash bail with two working sureties of fixed aboard, and warned him against interfering with witness or risk having his bail revoked.

Kamba who was spent a night in detention was arrested yesterday after undergoing questioning for two hours at Lusaka Central Police.
