The commencement of defence in the murder case involving Chilanga UPND member of parliament Keith Mukata has been set for tomorrow, Thursday as the co-accused Charmaine Musonda was reported unwell.

Mukata and Musonda are accused of murdering a security guard, Namakambwa Kwenda, on May 6, 2017 at the latter’s law firm in Lusaka.

When the matter came up for commencement of defense, only Keith Mukata was present before High Court judge Susan Wanjelani while Musonda was reported to have been admitted at University Teaching Hospital.

Allegations in this matter are that the duo killed Kwenda at Mukata’ s law firm, AKM legal practitioners in Lusaka’s Rhodes Park area.
