TWO juveniles accused of murdering their friend by stabbing him with a broken bottle, at a bar, have appeared in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court for explanation of the charge.

The incident happened at Lusaka’s JCS bar in Long Acres on April 6, 2019 when the duo allegedly murdered Sebastian Lungu, 20.

Before Lusaka Magistrate Ruth Kapulo yesterday were the juveniles aged 16 and 18 of Six Miles area and Kalingalinga compound, respectively.

It is alleged that on the material date, the two murdered Lungu, contrary to Section 200 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.

The accused persons, who were neatly dressed and looked composed, told the court that they understood the charge.

At this point Ms Kapulo explained to them that they could not take plea before her as the case can only be tried by the High Court and they will continue to appear for mention awaiting instructions from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to commit them to the High Court.

The matter has been adjourned to May 27, 2019 for mention.

According to then acting Police spokesperson Danny Mwale, Lungu was stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle during a fight at JCS bar in Long Acres.

Mr Mwale said Lungu, of Mtendere East, picked a quarrel with his friends and was stabbed with a broken bottle in the fight after which he died.
