ZAMBIAN HELD IN DURBAN ON TERROR CHARGE FREED

1

A Zambian National, Paul Sikazwe who was detained at Westville Prison on charges of causing alarm and panic at King Shaka International Airport, contrary to the Aviation Act, has been freed.
Sikazwe appeared in a Durban Court this Thursday afternoon and pleaded guilty to the charge of causing panic and alarm.
The Judge convicted him to a R15,000 fine suspended by R12,000( meaning he only paid R3000.00) and released him upon paying the statutory fine.
Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanuel Mwamba confirmed the development.
On Friday last week, Sikazwe joked to an airport security officer that he was carrying a bomb when the lady asked him the content of his hand luggage.
Police quickly swung into action, searched and detained Sikazwe for causing panic and alarm.
Nothing was found in the bag and his pleas that he was merely joking went unanswered.
There was celebrations outside the court when Sikazwe was released, and was greeted by Zambians led by ZASA leaders in Durban and Pietmarizburg-KZN
