The Katete Magistrate Court experienced a bit of drama after the court adjourned the matter involving a Chinese national due to lack of an interpreter. A Chinese national identified as Zhou Feng has been charged with threatening but the matter failed to take-off due to lack of a Chinese interpreter. The Chinese national is charged with threatening violence by discharging a gun at a night club. On June 7, 2018 the accused threatened Derrick Moyo a bar tender at Kings night club by discharging a fire arm. The case was adjourned due to the non-availability of an interpreter as the accused could not understand English. The matter was adjourned to Wednesday next week as the court was still looking for an interpreter who can interpret English to Chinese and vice versa.   The post Katete Court Adjourns Matter Due to Lack of Chinese Interpreter appeared first on Zambia Reports.
