OBVIOUS Mwaliteta, the Lusaka province UPND chairman has been placed on his defence by the Kafue Magistrate Court while his co – accused James Sichomba has been acquitted in a matter where the duo stood charged with one count of being in possession of dangerous weapons.

In a ruling, Magistrate Kawana Mwamfuli set January 15, 2021 as date on which Mwaliteta would commence his defence.

In acquitting James Sichomba, magistrate Mwamfuli said the prosecution failed to link the accused to the commissioning of the crime.

She however found Mwaliteta with a case to answer and placed him on his defence, saying the prosecution proved beyond any reasonable doubt that he was found in possession of the said dangerous weapons.

The two accused were represented in the matter by Mulambo Haimbe of Malambo and Company.

The act is said to have been commissioned during the Kafue District Council chairmanship by-election last year.
