By NA­TION RE­PORTER A STU­DENT of Apex Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity ap­peared in the Lusaka Mag­is­trates’ Court yes­ter­day for tres­pass­ing in State House with in­tent to com­mit a felony.

Mu­landa Zulu, 24, a fourth year phar­macy stu­dent, has been charged with crim­i­nal tres­pass, con­trary to Sec­tion 306 (a) of the Pe­nal Code Chap­ter 87 of the Laws of Zam­bia.

Par­tic­u­lars of the of­fence are that on April 12, 2018, Zulu en­tered State House premises with in­tent to com­mit a felony.

Soon af­ter his ar­rest, on April 13, 2018, Zulu’s grand­fa­ther Fen­wek Sikazwe told the po­lice that his grand­son came from Ma­saiti around 2013 for stud­ies at Apex Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity.

Mr. Sikazwe, a head teacher at Tick Li­layi School, said Zulu had no record of mis­chievous be­hav­iour, adding that nei­ther did he drink beer or smoke cig­a­rettes.

“I fur­ther state that he has no record of men­tal dis­or­ders. I wish to state that as a grand­fa­ther, I also some­times have a men­tal prob­lem of los­ing mem­ory and sev­eral good Sa­mar­i­tans have as­sisted me on many oc­ca­sions.

“As such I sus­pect that my grand­son Mu­landa Zulu had a men­tal re­lapse when he found him­self at State House on 12th April, 2018 at night.

I also wish to state that my grand­son does not or is not af­fil­i­ated to any po­lit­i­cal party,” Mr. Sikazwe said.
