The High Court has set June 23 this year as a day to start trial of businessman Ali Kaka Chinemba charged of murder for allegedly killing 20 year-old Davie Kadzuwa Banda with a pump gun in Manja Township, Blantyre last year July .
Chinemba’s lawyer Zwelithini Chipembere confirmed that they have been communicated by the court that trial will start on June 23.
“We have court correspondence which indicates the case will start on June 23,” said Chipembere.
The murder suspect, currently on bail, handed himself to Soche Police on August 4th , 2014 for killing Kadzuwa Banda after picking a quarrel over a wrongly parked lorry that was off-loading sand next to his house in Manja Township.
Kaka once faced the arm of law in February 2012 when he was arrested together with lawyer Ralph Kasambara and three others for detaining and assaulting three people who reportedly attempted to assassinate Kasambara and petrol-bomb his offices and residence in Blantyre.
He was also once arrested at Chileka Airport for allegedly using his father’s passport to travel outside the country.
Kaka has twice tried his luck in the political field but miserably failed to make it to the National Assembly after losing the Blantyre City South Parliamentary elections consecutively- 2009 and 2014.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
