Lawyer detained over attempted rape
A LIVINGSTONE–BASED lawyer, Phillip Mukuka, has been detained by police for allegedly attempting to kill a fellow attorney, Enia Kaingu.
The incident is said to have happened on August 8 this year between midnight and 05:00 hours.
Police spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said in an interview that Ms Kaingu reported at Victoria Falls Police Station that she met Mr Mukuka a day before the alleged incident.
The two met at Dry Manzi before they proceeded to Royal Livingstone Hotel for some drinks, after knowing each other as lawyers.
While at the hotel, Mr Mukuka allegedly attempted to force himself on Ms Kaingu after unzipping his trousers.
After the two left the hotel together, Mr Mukuka is said to have driven to an unknown direction, a move that left Ms Kaingu uncomfortable.
