DEC Officer, 2 Others to Hang

A DRUG Enforcement Commission (DEC) officer and two others have been sentenced to death for aggravated robbery.
Ndola High Court judge Charles Chanda convicted Michael Mukombola, a DEC officer, Gilbert Nkata and Lastone Simpasa and sentenced them to death by hanging after finding the trio guilty of aggravated robbery.
“I find you Mukombola, Nkata and Simpasa guilty of one count of aggravated robbery and convict you accordingly,” Judge Chanda said as he read out the judgment yesterday.
Judge Chanda said based on evidence presented before him, none of the three men disassociated himself from the use of a firearm.
