Student in court for invading State House
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.
