Mungwi man jailed for axing a friend he ‘caught’ having sex with his wife.

The Kasama Magistrates’ Court has sentenced a 36-year-old peasant farmer to three years imprisonment with hard labour for axing his friend.

Nonde Chewe of Pandwe Village in Mungwi District was charged with unlawful wounding for axing Moses Bwalya on the head after he allegedly caught him having sex with his wife on May 16, 2018, in his matrimonial bed.

When the matter came up Thursday for written facts and sentencing, National Public Prosecutions Authority Public Prosecutor Ali Goma informed the court that Chewe axed his friend when he found him in action after waking up in the night on the material day and later went to inform his neighbors that he had axed his friend.

This matter was before Principal Resident Magistrate Vincent Siloka.
