Ex-police chief, Katanga, to know fate Thursday, as bail application ruling adjourned


Former Police deputy Inspector-General, Charity Katanga, will have to wait until Thursday for her bail application pending appeal to be decided on by the Lusaka Magistrate Court.

Chief Resident Magistrate, Davies Chibwili, was on Monday sheduled to deliver ruling on the bail application, but adjourned to February 29, 2024.

This was after the applicant applied for an adjournment for the Court to take into consideration their reply to the State’s opposition to the bail application.

Magistrate Chibwili granted the request for an adjournment stating that it would be in the interest of justice for him to consider the applicant’s reply.

“This will not prejudice the state in any way. Part of the ruling speaks to the absence of the applicant’s reply,” he said.

On February 19, 2024, Katanga was sentenced to three years simple imprisonment for being in possession of Higer Buses worth K26 millon through proceeds of crime.

The Director of Public Prosecutions had already filed an application to have the buses and K1.5 million forefeited to the State.
