A 28-year-old Indian national has appeared in the Lusaka Magistrate Court in Zambia for using derogatory language against a Zambian national.
Patel Shahnawazy was alleged to have verbally showed ridicule and hatred to Ian Chilenga because of his race.
Shahnawazy was arrested on Thursday last week and remanded in custody after a video of him insulting a Zambian went viral on social media.
A concerned member of the public reported Shahnawazy of SD investment to the police.
The suspect could however not take plea because the prosecution is waiting for consent from the Director of Public Prosecutions -DPP.
Meanwhile, Lusaka Magistrate Lameck Mwale has granted a K15,000 cash bail to the accused person.
Magistrate Mwale further ordered the accused to provide two working sureties to be bound in the sum of thirty thousand kwacha but in their own recognizance.
The matter will come on May 3rd, 2019 for mention.
