Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The wife of Zambia’s former President Frederick Chiluba was today acquitted of five counts of receiving stolen property and money from her husband, the Lusaka-based high court ruled.

The court found no evidence to make a case, Emmanuel Mwamba, Chiluba’s spokesman, said by phone from Lusaka, the capital.

A lower court found Regina Chiluba guilty in February last year of illegally receiving $87,000 and three residential properties from her husband. Frederick Chiluba was acquitted of corruption charges in August 2009.
