I went on telling her about the drugs and my sisters. ” Oh my God that woman is really stained in
her heart” she shook her head.
” How can she treat your entire family like that. It’s not like you people took something of hers. It’s
just too much I think she’s sick in the head, a normal person cannot harbour so much hatred in her
heart, it seems so impossible” she added.
” Now let’s talk about you” I changed the subject slowly rubbing her hands.
” How are you holding up and am sorry for not coming yesterday, I had a long day and I only got
home late at night. Being faced with Clara’s macho man who wanted to get the recording from me.
I thank God, I saw him earlier before he entered the yard and I was ready for him. I left the house
through the back door and called on the cops who caught him searching the house. I bet he was

so she did favour me by taking me for prayers and giving me medication which my wife never did
Both my sisters were called to testify and Mulenga and Clara’s nephew too stated their testimonies
to Clara’s doings. I saw her head down she couldn’t look up at anyone.
Clara was present to give her account against Jennifer but all her allegations seemed to be failing.
In the end the Judge ruled Jennifer innocent and set another trial to prosecute Clara for now being
the main suspect in the murder. Staying she would be charged jointly with other charges of drug
trafficking, forging of documents to obtain the Kamanga company and properties using fraudulent
A lot of people that came for the hearing to hear the case of the famous story on social media now
cheered loudly as the Judge pronounced Jennifer not guilty on all charges labelled on her.
