A psychiatrist from Lusaka’s Chainama Hills Hospital has told the Lusaka High Court that James Bwalya who is accused of abducting and raping 13 women in Lusaka is not fit to undergo trial because he has an anti-social personality disorder.
Dr Patrick Musoni however indicated that Bwalya does not have a mental illness.
And a physician from the University Teaching Hospital has told the Court that Bwalya’s spine is dislocated as it has a deformity at the thoracic and lumbar spine.
The mental examination report has revealed that Matthews Sikaonga is mentally sound and fit to undergo trial.
Meanwhile the State advocate Bob Mwewa wants the court to order that Bwalya undergoes trial since he has no mental illness.
Bwalya’s lawyer Osborne Ngoma has objected to the application on reasons that the findings of the psychiatrist are clear that his client is not fit to stand trial.
