Lusaka Magistrate Sylvia Munyinya has acquitted four United Party for National Development (UPND) supporters who were charged with being in possession of offensive weapons and materials.

Remmy Mukoba and three others were accused of being in possession of one plastic bottle of glycerine, two plastic bottles of potassium Pamanganette, one bow and three arrows outside the Lusaka Central Prison during the time their leader, Hakainde Hichilema was in detention for treason.

But when the case came up for judgement today, Magistrate Munyinya freed the accused persons.
