Ndola man arrested for killing man who attempted to sleep with him




A 28-year-old man from Ndola will always regret accepting a 60-year-old man’s invitation to drink beer.

This is due to the fact that the 60-year-old man who had  intercourse with him after kissing him in the neck died as a result of being thrown off of him during the process.

Daniel Chileshe was allegedly abused indecently by George Kunda before being forced to the ground.

After being detained, Kunda told police that Mr. Chileshe, who is now deceased, had tried to kiss him and sleep  with him before pushing him to the ground. Mr. Chileshe had enticed Kunda to a secret location near Kabufu Bridge.

Bricklayer Kunda was accused with murder and aggravated robbery in this instance, but the charges were ultimately dropped to manslaughter.

According to court documents, Mr. Chileshe invited Kunda to join him for a drink on July 4, 2020.

It was reported that the now-deceased Mr. Chileshe asked Kunda which beer he was drinking while they were in the car and then went out and bought him two bottles of castle lite.

After that, the two went to the now-dead Mr. Chileshe’s request to touch Kunda’s nipples at the Kafubu River Underbridge.

When Mr. Chileshe arrived, it is claimed that he began kissing Kunda’s neck and then asked him if they could have intercourse.

Kunda then objected, knocked Mr. Chileshe to the ground, and stole his car.


Kunda is accused of causing an accident after hitting a Zesco pole in the settlement of Twapia.

Kunda begged the court for leniency in his mitigation, saying that being locked up was a tragedy and that he now regretted his conduct.

Kunda pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter and aggravated robbery when the case was heard by Daniel Musonda of the Ndola High Court.

Mr. Justice Daniel Musonda considered the mitigating before making his decision.

He claimed that after saw Kunda being indecently abused, he pushed the victim, inflicting injuries on him.

“I will deal with you leniently and in count one I will sentence you to six years imprisonment with hard labour while in count two I sentence you to a minimum sentence of 15 years. The sentences will run concurrently. Meaning you will serve 15 years,” he said.
