A son to former president Frederick Chiluba has been convicted of theft of a mobile phone by a Magistrate Court in Lusaka.

Chiluba Jr 32 was convicted for theft of a cellphone, brand Samsung S7 valued at K8,500 ($850).

Delivering the verdict, Magistrate  Nthandose Chabala said the presecution team had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt and he sentenced the former president’s son 8 months imprisonment with hard labour.

Chiluba junior allegedly stole Brenda Chisha’s phone in September last year.

During trial, Chisha told Magistrate Chabala that she met Chiluba in Woodlands around 18:00 hours on September 2, 2017 and he asked to use her phone.

“I have known him for years and it was an S7 so I gave him and he used it for two minutes then gave it back to me. About 10 minutes later, he came and asked to use the phone again and I gave him but he started moving further and further away from where we were. I then asked Isaac, who will be a witness to get my phone from him and that was the last time I saw the phone,” Chisha narrated.

“On Sunday he was caught and taken to Kabwata Police. When I asked him where the phone was, he said he had forgotten it somewhere. That same day, the uncle came and assured me that they would buy me another phone.”

Chiluba ruled Zambia from 1991 to 2001.
