According to BBC, Frederick Chiluba Jr was convicted of stealing a Samsung S7 edge, valued at $843. Former Zambian president Frederick Chiluba’s son has reportedly been sentenced to eight months in jail for stealing a mobile phone.
Chiluba Jr stole the device from a woman, Brenda Chisha, on September 2, 2017, and “traded it for drugs in a notorious slum in Zambia’s capital, Lusaka”.
A report by Zambian Watchdog said that Chiluba Jr was convicted after the court found that the prosecution had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt.
He was prosecuted for alleged embezzlement in 2002 but acquitted after a six-year trial.
