In a bid to clamp down on homosexuality, a court has handed a severe punishment to two gays who were caught banging each other back in 2017.
Online report says Japhet Chataba and Steven Samba who booked a lodge in Kapiri Mposhi community of central Zambia were arrested after a female worker alerted her colleagues after she peeped through the window and saw them having s£x.
They were reportedly convicted in 2018 by Kapiri Mposhi Magistrates’ Court but they took the case to the high court. The High court judge, Charles Zulu however handed them a 15 year jail sentence after refusing to review the verdict of the lower court.
“The trial court cannot be faulted and there is no basis to review or substitute the conviction and I further find that there were no irregularities by the trial court,” Judge Zulu said, the state-owned Zambia Daily Mail newspaper quotes him as saying.
