KAIZER ZULU STEALS STATE HOUSE VX, BUT POLICE CHARGE HIM WITH OFFENSE IN WHICH HE CAN ONLY BE JAILED FOR 6 MONTHS OR A FINE OF K450
Former State House gunman Kaizer Zulu hid a government Land-cruiser VX when he left State House, police have revealed .
But police will not charge Zulu with a serious offense of theft but have instead charged him with a misdemeanor or small offense called ‘conversion not amounting to theft.’
There is something seriously wrong with the police dealing with PF criminals. Infiltrating and compromise is total.
According section 291 of the Penal Code of Zambia, if a person is found of guilty of this small charge he can only be jailed for 6 months or less or be fined K450.
‘Any person who unlawfully and without colour of right, but not so as to be guilty of theft, takes or converts to his use or to the use of any other person any draught or riding animal or any vehicle or cycle however propelled, or any vessel, is guilty of a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for six months or to a fine not exceeding one thousand five hundred penalty units, or to both.’
