02 February 2020 :
Lusaka businessman Nshinka Kaputo who murdered Multichoice employee Precious Mangesana who was his lover, on 29 January 2020 was sentenced to death by hanging and 25 years imprisonment with hard labour four causing grievous harm to his three-year-old daughter.
High Court judge Catherine Phiri said it was unfortunate that Kaputo’s selfishness to possess the child resulted in Mangesana’s death and causing injury to the child.
Justice Phiri said that parents have equal rights to a child, but in carrying out his selfish motives, Kaputo ended up injuring the three-year-old who was innocent.
In this matter, Kaputo was facing charges of murder and intent to cause grievous harm.
Kaputo on 5 October 2017 shot dead Mangesana and wounded his daughter.
Mangesana met her fate when she went to collect her daughter, who was the bone of contention between the two, from Nshinka’s residence in Lusaka’s Meanwood area.
