UNZA lecturer, student in court for theft of accomodation feesBy Mukosha Funga on 12 Jul 2017
A University of Zambia lecturer and a student have been sued by the state for theft of student’s accommodation fees.
Edward Sichali, a lecturer, and Mend Sankutu, a student, allegedly stole K33,500 from five people who wanted accommodation.
According to Sichali’s indictment, the 29-year-old lecturer stole K15,500 from two students whom he promised to secure accommodation for.
“On unknown dates but between 1st January 2017 and 31st January 2017 in Lusaka did steal K10,000 cash which was entrusted to him by Phillip Banda to pay accommodation at the University of Zambia on his behalf, property of Natasha Mwila,” read the first count of theft by agent.
In the second count, Sichali is accused of stealing K5,500 entrusted to him by Mwansa Chimundu to pay for accommodation on his behalf.
And in a separate indictment, Sankutu is alleged to have stolen K18,000 from three students; Felix Yusiku, Chihola Ndumba and Joyce Mumba in a similar fashion in November 2016.
When the matter came up, the duo pleaded not guilty.
Trial commences soon.
