CHIFUBU PF member of parliament Frank Ng’ambi has pleaded not guilty to one count of assault. This is in a case where Ng’ambi is charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Particulars of the offence are that Ng’ambi on June 7, 2019 in Ndola did assault Mubanga Chikomo Ng’ambi. When the matter came up for plea before Ndola magistrate Chinga Chitabo on Friday, Ng’ambi pleaded not guilty.
“I understand the charge. I deny the charge,” Ng’ambi said.
His lawyer Kenneth Tembo then applied for bail pending trial. Magistrate Chitabo then granted Ng’ambi bail.
“I grant you bail of K2,000 in your own recognizance with two working sureties,” magistrate Chitabo said.
The matter has been adjourned to July 11, 2019 for commencement of trial.
