A Zimbabwean national has pleaded guilty in the Lusaka Magistrate Court to staying in Zambia illegally.

Tsiko Tsungiriralupenyu 29, an accountant by profession, appeared before Magistrate Sheila Mweene and admitted the charge of unlawful stay in the country contrary to the laws of Zambia.

It alleged that Tsungiriralupenyu between February 18 and March 21, 2014, unlawfully stayed in Zambia without valid documents.

And when the accused was asked if he had any lawful authority that permitted him to stay in the country, he responded that he did not have any valid documents.

The court therefore recorded a plea of guilty and adjourned the matter to April 2, 2014 for facts.

The accused person is remanded in custody.
