Four members of the same family have appeared before the magistrates court for an offence of assault.
Particulars of the offence before magistrate Jennipher Bwalya was that Izukanji Simbule, Cliff Simbule, Sylvia Simbule, Mapalo Simbule and Wiza Simbule allegedly assaulted Chrisantius Changwereza hereby causing him occasioning actual bodily harm on December 24.
They appeared in court but could not take plea because Izukanji Simbule one of the accused was absent.
Justin Tembo a surety of Izukanji said the accused was studying at Copperbelt University and would ensure he was present at the next sitting.
