Mwamba appears in court

Share

Mwamba at Woodlands Police post today

By LusakaTimes

Former president Frederick Chiluba’s spokesperson Emmanuel Mwamba has been arrested and charged with contempt of court.

Mwamba who handed himself over to the police in the company of his lawyer John Sangwa was by press time appearing in court.

This follows an order by High Court Judge Gregory Phiri’s who demanded for a thorough investigation meant to identify the author and publisher of contemptuous and scandalous articles commenting on murder suspect Mathew Mohan’s case that were published on Zambian Watchdog.

Earlier in the day, Mwamba was detained at Woodlands Police station after he was interrogated at Police headquarters.

At around 10:40 hours, nine uninformed police officers took Mwamba to Woodlands Police station where he was arrested and detained.

Mwamba’s lawyer had a bitter exchange of words with police officers when they forced him (Mwamba) to remove his shoes and enter a police
cell where he was to be detained.

  1. fred mmembe and michael sata at work. dont worry my brother emmanuel you will be free as their is no proof in what malupenga claims you did. you dont own zambian watchdog neither are you editor as the owners are in UK. if you blogged under a psuedo name like we all do it cant be traced to you. really this is fishing in a tea cup

  2. You thought your Boss has been let free by RB and you can also talk rubbish about the Law, we will see who will talk for you. Your lawyers are also facing consiplance for murder, i end here.

  3. Former spokesperson?This chap was fired?Anyway what goes around,comes around!This guy was big time!Let him feell the heat.Seluka musapato!!!!

  4. Interesting! John Sangwa is representing him when he himself is in court over forgery. Are there no other clean lawyers any more.Well, they say innocent till proven guilty!!

  5. Lady Gaga, you live in fools village, this is techinology age, you can be traced any where, if you think using your psuedo name you can’t be traced you are fooling your self. i can even see you if i want to connect the equipment to trach you. this 2010 and not 1991 when FTJ was in power hooooo!

  6. IT IS BECAUSE OF UN-EDUCATED BUFFOONS LIKE #5 Unworried Bachelor THAT I ALWAYS COME ON BOARD AND WRITE MY MIND AWAY. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU THUG? HOW CAN YOU INSULT A LADY LIKE THAT JUST BECAUSE YOUR GRANDFATHER OF A WITCH IS PF PRESIDO AND YOUR HOMO COUSIN IS OWNER OF THE POST? THE FACT IS EMMANUEL MWAMBA WAS ARRESTED AT THE INSTIGATION OF MALUPENGA.HOW DID A FOOL LIKE YOU END UP OUT OF ZAMBIA? YOU BRIBED SOMEONE? IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING CIVIL, SHUT THE *&^% UP. ANYWAY, YOU ARE JUST EMULATING YOUR BUFFOON PRESIDO

  7. Guy has been arrested and is in court with the consent of disgraced DPP.Let him have his day in court as well.Yes the PF magazine is behind this but if he is found wanting,the Zambian “law” will take its course

  8. Some people on this blog are very shallow! Full of insults and insinuations without proof. This issue is straight forward, leave it to the courts, some of you on this blog will end up just like Mwamba. The chap writes from Zambia and thinks he cannnot be traced all PCs are machines with serial numbers and the implication is that if you like insulting and running commentary on court issues you will be traced and arrested. Watch out all you with foul language! Some of you, it really reflects very poorly on your upbringing.MWILATEMWA KULANDA ICHINWA PUFU!

  10. chitimbwa@3, read carefully, it says former president FTJ’s spokesperson. He is still the spokesperson. On the other hand, looks like there’s only a handful of lawyers in Zedland and they represent every Mathew and Ranjan. Aren’t there any clean lawyers left, assuming they’re guilty?

  11. #3 It reads; “Former prezident FTJ’s spokesperson…” and not “Former spokesperson…..”. So the man still haz hiz job.

  12. #14 & 15 Her Ladyship Don’t be funny. Zambian cops can not trace you through the computer. They relied on Malupenga saying it was Mwamba who wrote the story. the Post can write all they want and its ok but when someone else writes something, then its an issue.

  13. This chap is too boss over chiluba,s scandals he thinks RB will save him like he has saved ka Chiluba. Let him face the law,besides he is been represented by wrong laws facing court charges also.

  14. To those of you who think you are hidden under false names on the internet, will be disappointed. Each and every computer in the world has a unique address which is also sent with your messages on the internet. They are designed like cell phones which also have a serial number and this number is sent and recorded by the service providers with each and every call or message you send. Its actually very easy to trace you. Be careful next time and avoid what has happened to our friend. I rest my case.

  15. Ba LT were are my postings?dont behave like cowards?remove me from this blog space if you dont want my postings otherwise you will be wasting my time blogging only to be deleted.did i insult anyone?

  16. Nkani yalula… mwamba is in hell. He thot he and chiluba were the same person. I hope your stoga is just fine. Mu cello nimobaba ka. Wenzo funika ku matero iwe. chosa beloti kekeke. Chalila pazed no single day is dull yabaa.

  17. is mmembe running the judiciary why do you people like to hate on the post, watch them grow and you continue hating you losers

  18. lady gaga you are obviously IT-challenged and your ignorance in that regard is astounding! Writing under a pseudoname does NOT protect you from being traced and identified. Those of us in the know are just waiting for you to come back and see what will happen to u based on what crap u have been writting.

  19. SORRY MUNDALA WITH THOSE ZAMBIAN CELLS ARE YOU STILL MMD IF NOT YOU ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO JAIL I HOPE YOUR FORMER BOSS WILL SPEAK TO RB THAT IS A SMALL CASE COMPARED TO YOUR FORMER BOSS’S CASE BUT IMAGINE HE IS OUTSIDE IT IS WHO YOU KNOW LAWS OF ZAMBIA

  20. I never thot Mwamba had a following,till today. Emmanuel got too big headed and thats what it is when you go around bragging and defending crooks, you become one and thanks to RB for allowing this to take place-justice really. For those of you bringing in POST or PF, for once learn from your stupidity and see the spade as one and there is no way an opposition will be listened to especially in this sort of political scenario pa Zed. If Emmanuel has some defence to make, he is a lawyer he must be well learnt to justify himself or else UZAGONA PANSI,achosa na nsapato.PEACE

  21. #Lady Gaga
    Am astonished by your lack of IT understanding…..don’t feel very comfortable that you are blogging using a nickname. They can easily trace you….its very easy my dear. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.

  22. LT what do you mean by,I quote,”At around 10:40 hours, nine uninformed police officers took Mwamba to Woodlands Police station…” end of quote. I wonder what kind of police men we have in this country, how come the are UNINFORMED? Is this the new way of saying they are not uniformed? Mmmmm. Anway, this guy thinks he owns Zambia. No doubt he now will be a statistic.

  23. #1 LADY GAGA
    dont comfort or cheat yourselves,proof or evidence is there
    (1)There is 20 minutes recorded telephone conversation between mwamba and malupenga.
    (2)The chap emailed the article to Malupenga which was later published on the Zambian Watch dog.
    So lady,if he is your boy friend,am sorry,start looking for others before month-end because your landlord will……ahhh………am sorry once more.
