A 51-YEAR-OLD University of Zambia (UNZA) lecturer has been dragged to court for allegedly indecently assaulting a female.

Austin Mbozi is facing one count of indecent assault on females, contrary to section 137 (1) of the penal code Chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

It is alleged that Mbozi on September 28, 2020, in Lusaka did unlawfully and indecently assault a female.

However, when the matter came up yesterday before Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile, the State informed the Court that the accused person, who is on police bond, was not before court.

The State said it was the first time the matter was coming up and asked that it be adjourned to November 12, 2020, for plea.

Magistrate Mikalile adjourned the case to November 12, this year.
