State Enters Nolle in CBU Lecturer’s Murder Case

The State has entered a Nolle Prosequi in a matter where a 26-year-old man was accused of killing a Copperbelt University lecturer in cold blood in Kitwe.

Particulars of the offence were that in October, 2019, Chiluba Mwale, 26, allegedly stabbed Dr Maximillan Mainza to death.

Apart from the murder charge, Mr Mwale was also facing charges of aggravated robbery and rape.

When the matter came up for continued trial, the State informed the court that it was not proceeding with the matter as the Director of Public Prosecutions had entered a Nolle Prosequi in the case.

The suspect who had been at Kamfinsa Correctional Facility since his arrest last year has since been set free following the nolle prosequi entered in the case.

  1. Yes since a person who died is a Tonga no problem unless if he was from Eastern or Bemba ,Tribalism even with justice now In Zambia is serious the same for retirement only other tribals should be retired in nation interest but old Easterners and northerners they are brought back to work as PS ,Governors ,civil servants God save us

  2. Certain things can make you wonder whether you are dreaming or not. So this means that we now have a crime without a criminal. What happens next? The heat dies down? A murder is a murder, justice must be served for goodness sake. A big joke.

  3. There is no justice in zambia. The relatives of the slain lecturer must just take the law unto themselves and kill this murderer. They will also be acquitted through a nolle.
