TWO NDOLA teenage girls have been fined K500 for defaming a woman they said was born while her mother was on her periods.
The 34-year-old woman of Bwana Mkubwa told the Kabushi local court that she felt humiliated when two teens insulted her and called her a villager during a public gathering.
The woman narrated that the girls, both in their early teens, also called her a villager because she had been wearing the same clothes for some time.
She said she felt insulted and humiliated in public.
In their defense the teenagers dismissed allegations of defaming Nuya saying they had no reason to call her names or insult her as they considered her a mother to them.
But Magistrate Paul Kayula sitting with Mildred Nalwize warned the girls of stern action for disrespecting elders in the future.
The court fined the teenagers K500 to be paid in monthly installments of K200 for the first two months. They were also warned as to their future conduct.
