Lusaka magistrate magistrate Sylvia Munyinya has sentenced a 27-year-old teacher of Samfya district in Luapula Province to two years imprisonment with hard labour for defaming President Edgar Lungu.

In this matter, Enockson Banda was facing four counts of Defamation of the President and possession of obscene material.

Banda had initially denied the allegations but changed his plea to guilty on Friday saying he insulted the Head of State because he was angry.
