First witness paraded in Wittika murder case

Dalitso James has told the court that he started working as a houseboy for Allan Wittika on 6 August 2023. He says other workers were a garden boy and security guard but late Wittika and the house boy were the only occupants of the house.

On the day Wittika was found dead, according to James, Witika left for work around 6:45 am. Around 9 am, Wittika’s workmate showed up to inquire about Wittika’s whereabouts. The security guard had knocked off around 6am while the garden boy did not show up for work.

Around 11 am, two Coca-Cola employees showed up at the house while his uncle arrived at the house around 12pm to equally check if he was there. Later on, they all heard that Wittika had been found dead in a vehicle in Area 15.

He was subsequently arrested on 20 September 2023 and released from Police custody on 15 October 2023.

James was Police’s first suspect.

James has told the court that Olive Nkhono never visited Wittika’s house.

Nkhono is believed to have been in a relationship with both late Wittika and the accused Lester Maganga.

Asked if he knows anything that would connect Maganga to the death of Wittika, James told the court “palibe chomwe ndikudziwapo”.

Asked again if he knew Maganga, James replied “sindikuwadziwa”.
