Nivea Lotion Theft Lands Chipata Women in Court


A 53-year-old woman of Chipata who is alleged to have stolen Nivea lotion from Shoprite has requested to take fresh plea in the Chipata Magistrates’ court claiming that she was in a confused state after taking Anti-Retroviral Therapy drugs when taking the previous plea. Linda Kabunda who is appearing before resident magistrate Betty Mwiinga pleaded guilty to the charge of theft when she first appeared in court but changed plea the following day when facts of the matter were about to be presented by the state. On Monday, when she appeared for mention before resident magistrate Destiny Kalusopa because magistrate Mwiinga was out, Kabunda told the court that she wanted to take fresh plea.
