When the matter came up for continued trial in the Kasama Magistrate Court this morning, the state informed the court of its decision to discontinue the matter.

Patrick Mucheleka, Samuel Ngwira, Elias Mubanga and Kelvin Bwalya were arrested late last year during the Lukashya Parliamentary by-election for the offence of causing malicious damage to a type writer, printer and generator, a property of the Zambian Government.
