THIRTEEN boys suspected of being members of the notorious ’90 Niggas’ gang appeared in Kitwe Magistrate Court for plea.
The juveniles are suspected to be members of the notorious `90 Niggas` gang which has been terrorising Kitwe residents for some time now.
They appeared before Magistrate Leonard Tembo and pleaded not guilty to the charge of Idle and disorderly conduct.
It is alleged that on April 4, this year the 13 boys did conduct themselves in a manner likely to breach the peace. Their ages range from 13 to 18 years and are all residents of Bulangililo Township in Kitwe. They are alleged to have stormed a school and started demanding alms from pupils and other members of the public. They are also alleged to have harassed members of the public in Bulangililo before police officers were called in. Police rounded up some of them as others fled the scene.
Mr Tembo has since adjourned the matter to April 30, this year for mention and the 13 Juveniles have remained in police custody.
