Please try the following: Enable sytax hightlighting for the language you are using in Kate or KWrite (assuming you are using Linux or *BSD). Export the file as HTML.
Launch LibreOffice Writer (*not* LibreOffice Writer Web), open the HTML file and save it as ODT. You can then import the ODT file into a Scribus text frame with all colours intact.
