An unemployed man accused of forgery and attempting to obtain a loan by false pretence has been remanded in custody after the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court revoked his police bond.

Lusaka Magistrate Nsunge Chanda cancelled Pious Chibamba Manyonga’s police bond after noticing that there were no letters of introduction for his sureties.

Ms. Chanda said releasing accused persons on police bond or bail is a serious business which calls for thorough details of sureties.

She then granted Manyonga K20, 000 bail in his own recognisance with two working sureties in the like sum.

“Which police officer can be looking for a house number in compounds? I have no time for bench warrants. You will be remanded in custody until you meet the bail conditions,” Ms. Chanda said.

In this case, Manyonga is facing 10 counts of forgery and uttering false documents and one count of attempting to obtain K85, 000 loan from Zambia National Building Society (ZNBS) by false pretences.

In the first count particulars of offence are that with intent to deceive or defraud, Manyonga jointly and whilst acting together with others unknown, forged an introductory letter in the names of Ngenda Wamunyima by purporting to show that it was issued by the Lusaka District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) when in fact not.

In the second count, he is accused of knowingly and fraudulently uttering the same to Marshal Chileshe of ZNBS. In count three he is charged for forging a National Registration Card in the names of Ngenda Wamunyima by purporting to show that it was genuinely issued when in fact not.

In the fourth count, Manyonga has been charged for knowingly and fraudulently uttering the same NRC to Mr. Chileshe while in count five he is accused of forging an e-government pay slip in the names of Ngenda Wamunyima. In the sixth count, Manyonga is charged for uttering the same pay slip to Mr. Chileshe.

In count seven, Manyonga is charged for forging another e-government pay slip in the names of Ngenda Wamundila while in the eighth count he is charged for uttering the same e-pay slip to Mr. Chileshe.

In the ninth count Manyonga is charged for forging another e-government pay slip in the names of Ngenda Wamundila while in count 10 he is charged for uttering the same pay slip to Mr. Chileshe.

In count 11 Manyonga is charged for attempting to obtain K85, 000 loan from ZNBS by pretending that he was Ngenda Wamundila, a Ministry of General Education employee. Trial starts on April 15, 2019.
