Businesswoman admits assaulting ZaloumisBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 16 Oct 2018
A 30-year-old businesswoman has admitted in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court that she assaulted local farmer, Maria Zileni Zaloumis, popularly known for her successful tomato farming business, when the two were in a fight.
Mubaba Mangilashi is alleged to have assaulted Maria on September 15, this year, occasioning her actual bodily harm after she allegedly found her husband in Maria’s house.
The story of Mubaba and Maria had recently made rounds on social media, alleging that Maria grabbed Mubaba’s husband, Justin Phiri.
According to a Facebook posting by Mubaba, she confirmed having engaged in a physical fight with Maria after she found her husband in Maria’s house, a person she considered as her mentor and friend.
Mubaba had further stated that she felt so much pain and betrayed after a person she considered as her mentor, started hanging out with her husband.
And when the matter came up for plea before Magistrate Alice Walusiku, Monday, Mubaba admitted having assaulted Maria.
She further explained that the assault occurred when the two engaged in an argument.
However, after hearing her explanation Magistrate Walusiku entered a plea of not guilty and adjourned the matter to October 29 for commencement of trial.
Meanwhile, the matter in which a 38-year-old businessman of George Compound is alleged to have had carnal knowledge of his seven-year-old son against the order of nature has been adjourned to October 31 for continuation of trial.
Victor Mukuka is charged with one count of unnatural offence, but had pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Nsunge Chanda last month.
Particulars of the offence are that Mukuka, on dates unknown, but between January and May 10, 2018, in Lusaka, had unlawful carnal knowledge of his seven year-old son against the order of nature.
However, when the matter came up for continuation of trial, Monday, it failed to take off and was adjourned to October 31.
Last month, Mukuka’s neighbour Anna, a hairdresser, had testified that she had been neighbours with Mukuka since 1997 and he was currently divorced.
She had further testified that at one time when she was in her salon, her six-year-old son told her that the victim had sores.
Anna further said that when she checked him, she discovered that the boy had rash on his private parts and sores on his buttocks.
