The Kitwe High Court has acquitted Melissa Neiman the 32 year old woman of Chingola who was charged with one account of murdering her 9 year old child. Melissa was charged with one count of murder contrary to the laws of Zambia. It was alleged that Neiman on 16th July, 2016 administered a poisonous insecticide “Doom” to her 9 year old child who died while she survived after taking the same poison contrary to section 200 Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia. Neiman is alleged to have picked up a quarrel with her lover which led to the unforseen circumstances that led to the death of her 9 year old child. The state called 11 witness to testify in the matter. And in delivering Judgement, Kitwe High Court Judge Justice Timothy Katenekwa acquitted the accused on account that the prosecution team failed to prove the case. Justice Katenekwa stated that the 11 state witnesses relied on circumstantial evidence which failed to link the accused to the murder. Justice Katenekwa said it was clear that both Melisa and her son ingested poison on the fateful day but the prosecution failed to link her to the act, doubts arose in the case and such doubts are usually resolved in favor of the accused.

Unionised Workers at the Copperbelt University are disappointed management announced the date for reopening the University without addressing the many issues affecting the institution among demands that Prof. Naison Ngoma is removed. The union representative have said the announcement by the Copperbelt University Management to reopen the Copperbelt University on the 25th March 2018 amidst many unresolved issues was ill-timed and as usual without consultation with the stakeholder unions. “For instance, the vote of no confidence in Prof. Naison Ngoma has been trivialised by the Minister of Higher Education stating that Prof. Naison Ngoma will not be removed as lecturers and other workers are just demonising him for no good reason. This statement is extremely disappointing to the workers who have provided sufficient evidence of his incompetence and maladministration in the dossier submitted to the Minister of Higher Education” on of the union representative said. The workers at the Copperbelt University have insisted and remain resolved not to perform their normal duties for as long as Prof. Naison Ngoma is forced on them. “It is therefore strange that the Copperbelt University Management and the Minister of Higher Education could allow the opening of the institution as the returning students’ reception and settling into campus will be negatively affected due to the current industrial unrest at the Copperbelt University” they added. The Unions have further accused Prof. Naison Ngoma that he selfishly upgraded his economy air ticket to that of business class in the amount of $ 3,360 (K33, 600.00) using Copperbelt University finances during his medical trip to India. They said their members will remain committed to continue with normal duties immediately on condition that Prof. Naison Ngoma is removed as Vice Chancellor of the Copperbelt University and that Irregular suspensions are lifted and full salaries for unionised workers placed on half salaries illegally is restored.
