The court heard that on February 22 this year, Mercy Banda (23) and Mitchell Siziva (23), who were visibly drunk, budged into the police station and demanded access to their arrested colleague, leading to a confrontation with the police officers.

In the ensuing melee, Banda and Siziva insulted the police officers and fled the scene.

They were later arrested and charged for verbally assaulting the law enforcement agents.
