The Ndola Magistrate Court has detained seasoned comedian Webster Chiluba popularly known as Kasaka after he failed to present an accused person who allegedly swindled six teachers after he promised them jobs in the teaching service and to help them get registered by the Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ).
Mr Chiluba signed as surety for Mathews Silungwe 28 a musician of Ndola’s Kabushi Township who was charged with impersonation and six counts of theft.
It is alleged that on September 25, 2018, in Ndola, with intent to defraud, Silungwe falsely represented himself as an inspector from the TCZ to Grace Sokoni.
It is also alleged that Mr Silungwe stole Six Thousand Two Hundred and Thirty kwacha from Silvia Nalungwe, Daniel Phisi, Natasha Mwansa, Ketty Siwale and Herald Mwila.
Further, it is alleged that Silungwe used different mobile phone numbers to call some teachers and threatened them with deregistration if they did not register and had not applied for their licenses with the TCZ.
