A 28-year-old pastor of Lusaka’s Meanwood Phase One area has been dragged to court for assault and unlawful carnal knowledge of a woman against the order of nature.

In this matter, Francis Mukuwa is charged with unnatural offences contrary to section 155 (a) of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

It is alleged that between December 1, 2018, and January 2, 2019, the accused had unlawful carnal knowledge of a woman against the order of nature.

And in count two, Mukuwa is charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm contrary to section 248 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

It is alleged that on January 2, 2019, Mukuwa assaulted the woman and occasioned her actual bodily harm.

However, when the matter came up before Lusaka Magistrate Faides Hamaundu, Mukuwa could not take plea as he was not present in court.

The matter has been adjourned to Wednesday, this week.
