Mundia withdraws legal representation in sodomy case involving farmer, G12 pupilBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 7 Aug 2019
Lusaka lawyer Christopher Mundia has withdrawn legal representation in a matter in which a 53-year-old farmer and a grade 12 pupil are accused of engaging in sexual acts against the order of nature.
In this matter, Douglas Quentin Watt of farm number 4007 in Chisamba and a 17-year-old male juvenile are charged with two counts of unnatural offences and two counts of being in possession of obscene materials but pleaded not guilty to the first two counts.
In count one, it is alleged that on unknown dates but between May and July 17, 2019, in Lusaka, Watt had unlawful carnal knowledge of the 17-year-old juvenile against the order of nature.
In count two, the juvenile on the same dates, in Lusaka, allegedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of Watt against the order of nature.
In count three, Watt on July 17, this year, in Lusaka, allegedly had in possession of obscene pictures and videos on a cell phone tending to corrupt morals.
And in count four, the juvenile on the same date, in Lusaka, also had in possession obscene pictures and videos on the cell phone tending to corrupt morals.
Previously, the duo could not take plea in the third and forth counts as the Director of Public Prosecution had not yet issued consent to prosecute the charges.
And when the matter came up before Chief Resident Magistrate Lameck Mwale, Tuesday, trial could not commence as the State was not ready to proceed with the matter.
Earlier, a defence lawyer informed the court that Mundia, who was representing Watt, had withdrawn legal representation in the matter.
The matter has since been adjourned to September 4, this year, for commencement of trial.
