Richard Chileshe, a PF cadre and Kitwe businessman known as “Chile 1,” was sentenced to five years in prison with hard labor for copper theft, along with three others.

Chileshe, along with John Mapoma, Victor Bweupe, Evans Mulenga, Mukwapatila Tembo Kapango, Kelvin Tembo, and Davy Ngosa, were accused of stealing 30 copper blisters worth K1 million and hiding them in a garage in Mindolo township. The court, on the other side, acquitted Bweupe, Kapango, and Tembo.

When the case came up for judgment, Kitwe principal resident magistrate Ikechukwu Iduma blasted Chileshe, Mapoma, Mulenga, and Ngosa with a five-year prison sentence.

Mulenga was one of the defendants, and in his absence, the court issued an arrest warrant for him. Chileshe, on the other hand, was due in court Wednesday to face allegations of threatening violence.

In this case, Chile 1 is charged with threatening violence in violation of Zambian law. On July 15, 2015, Chileshe is charged of discharging a loaded firearm with the intent to cause alarm to anyone.
