PRESIDENT Sata has sued United Party for National Development president Hakainde Hichilema for alleged defamation of character.

Mr Sata has also sued proprietors of the Daily Nation and Zambian Watchdog Richard Sakala and Lloyd Himaambo, respectively, for the defamation.

He has further sued lawyer Robert Amsterdam, who is acting for former President Rupiah Banda and his son, Henry, and University of Zambia history lecturer Choolwe Beyani.

This is contained in writs of summons filed in the Lusaka High Court yesterday by President Sata’s lawyers Ellis and Company.

Mr Sata has sued Mr Hichilema and four others in connection with stories published in the Daily Nation and on the Zambian Watchdog, regarding an alleged false statement suggesting that he is protecting his “rich friends Mutembo Nchito and Fred M’membe from paying back the K14 billion owed to Development Bank of Zambia”.

He is seeking an injunction restraining Mr Hichilema from defaming him.

“The plaintiff claims an injunction restraining the defendants and each of them, whether by themselves, their servants or agents or otherwise from further publishing or causing to be published the similar words defamatory of the plaintiff,” reads part of the summons.

The head of State is further claiming general and exemplary damages for defamation of character and interest at current commercial bank lending rates.

He is also claiming further or other reliefs as the court will deem fit and costs.

Mr Sata said Mr Hichilema’s statement that “he [President Sata] will not get away with lies” published by the private newspaper and the online publication means he lacks integrity and has aided and abetted corruption and the abuse of public funds.

  6. About time too. HH ngombe sizasila. The others will have to sell their dogs and cats to keep from going to jail.

    The circus that has been criminalizing Mmembe and Nchito must stop forthwith. People must make statements based on evidence, not petty jealousy and rabid malice.

    • Evidence so far suggests that the President is indeed protecting his rich friends from paying back K14b the guaranteed to pay back if their business failed to do so. Who in the history of justice has gone to complain to the president on a civil matter and has been heard as loud as Sata heard M’membe and Nchito? Just one example.

  7. Let this tribal group prove their allegations before the same courts they are protecting from reforms.
    Hope they will not cry when the court rules in favour of Sata that, they are Sata’s judges.
    This is the most civil way of answering back by the President.

  8. If you cant win an argument, best thing to do is try to muzzle the opposition either by sheer police brutality or suppressing freedom of speech. I guess he will have to fire all the judges before this case goes to court as it is very clear to all and sundry that he has been defending Nchito and Membe to stop them from paying back what they owe the Zambian tax payer.

  9. Very good move. Zambians should learn to speak based on evidence not just ranting. Let hichilema proove in court that Sata is protecting Mutembo and Membe. We are waiting to hear the truth in court. Sata vs HH.. Wapya Munzi.

    • I agree with you. Sata has not said that Nchito and Mmembe should not pay K14billion. All he has done is to institute an investigation against the judges for their alleged misconduct. It is important for the judges to explain that they conducted themselves above board in this and other cases. The way the case was withdrawn from Judge Hood raises a lot of suspicion – the way judge Mutuna behaved toward the accused raises a lot of questions. Justice must be seen to be done for it to be justice. So HH should not make such an allegation and he is let free to lie. He must prove his allegation. It is natural justice. And if he has proof (on a balance of probability) he will win the case which will even be helpful to his political career.

  10. We hope the president is not using state machinery to sue people left,right and center. He is heading for the record books of becoming Zambia’s worst president ever. This issue is in the public interest and should be debated in parliament free of charge and not waste tax payers money by taking it to court where everyone knows that the president is fiddling with the judiciary to give him favourable outcome or he fires them. Mr President, you work for Zambia PLC not the other way round. The Zambian people shall have the last laugh.

  11. This is a good start. It is not unfamiliar for Zedians to make unfounded statements and then break a sweat when called to account. There has to be a new dispensation in peddling of information… It feels strange because it is a new way of addressing an otherwise accepted bad habit in our society!

  23. I am made to understand that the president is immune from prosecution which means that the people he has sued cannot do the same to him. One wonders the job of parliament if they are not allowed to debate issues such as Finance Bank, Dual Citizenship etc. We have a president that has shown that state house knows it all and hence the with immediate effect decrees that we have now become accustomed to. I now understand what KK, Chiluba and Mwanawasa said about Sata not being presidential material. Once you start engaging in fist fights with your own people, then know that you have lost the plot.

Abash intimidation, Ukwa better brave himself for tough times ahead.

  27. Mr. President. Being called names by the opposition and all comes with teritory. When you venture into politics you should be thick skinned. And from the little law I know on defamation, an action in political cases will not lie. You have all the State Machinery and Instruments of Power at your disposal. Why should the entire Presidency be engaged in a fight at a dinner table over a few pieces of chicken with the opposition? It is deemining. It is time you rose above pettiness. Grow up. Sha!!!

Time to drag each other to courts is NOT there what we want is the way forward for Zambia under Mr. Sata’s leadership. LEAVE A LEGACY OF REDEEMING ZAMBIA FROM THE SHAMBLES OF POVERTY AND NOT THE LEGACY OF TAKING INNOCENT CITIZENS TO COURT!!

  31. He who comes to equity must come with clean hands. Therefore, a good judge will have to look at Sata’s character before arriving at a judgement. This is the guy who claimed that Kaunda’s Government was sheltering Sadam Hussein’s family during Gulf War I. He is the guy who was awarded a paltry K1,000.00 exemplary damages in the Supreme Court in addition to Justice Ngulube falling short of calling him a liar, when he said he was economical with the truth. He is the same fellow who campaigned on the 90 Days Promise. He has more skeletons in his closet than Leopards Hill Cemetry has. Go ahead and sue, but make sure you take the stand so that you are cross examined and the truth will be brought to the fore.

What a bad head of state who is bussy suing people. What is wrong with this man? It is also clear that Sata said the opposition are protecting their rich friends. I mean just what does Sata want of this country, so he gets no opposition and only PF should be yapping every day? Disgusting

  35. Actually Sata has turned the courts into his family and only business. He wants all the money HH has to himslef using the courts. Lawyers also have no principles because they can make money out of foolishness. Infact, what needs to be reformed in Zambia are the priviledges lawyers have, how can they be sent to court by someone who can’t be sued? Is Sata suing as head of state or in his personal capacity? Infact HH and his team should walk out of court and create a proper impass if Sata won’t attend in person then we see what happens

  36. Thats why people say politics is a dirty game and its not for the faint hearted otherwise you can end up suing the whole nation. The fact is that only about 29% percent voted for SATA in the last elections and this implies that there are alot of critics whom he can either win over by his deeds or repel even his sympathisers. This is the reality of life. If Chiluba, Mwanawasa and RB pursued this avenue of dragging critics to court everytime they critised their policies, this country could not have moved an inch. Criticism is the best antidote for success…..

  39. CAUSE `N` EFFECT
    There are many injustices taking place in or judicial process from the lower courts through to the highest court. By personally choosing to intervene exclusively in the case of Membe and Mutembo, tow high profile individuals whom he incidentally has strong ties with, the president opened a can of worms. Through this overtly suspicious act, Sata invited scrutiny, criticism and ridicule. Many people are outraged and HH and the media are only echoing the views of the majority. 

    I thought the president only had faith in imported justice. How come he is now seeking judicial recourse from the same local judiciary he calls corrupt. More hypocrisy? Sbd`s failing to lead!

    NO AMOUNT OF INTIMIMIDATION AND FEAR MONGERING  WILL SUPRESS THE VOICES OF THE PEOPLE.

What makes this dictator think that he is above the law and do whatever he likes? He insults people left, right and centre but can’t stand the heat when tables are turned against him. Just the other day he was busy insulting us Zambians in the UK that we are sweepers on council benefits. The problem with PF supporters is that they deliberately ignore their leaders failings just becoz he is one of them. This man is a danger to our hard fought democracy and must be stopped before it is too late.

I mean, the ‘Pamberi e ZANU PF’ canary episode he staged before SADC, if that is not ‘masalamusi’ in the skull then I beg to be shown a mad man. All those around him cheering him must one day be made to account why they installed and sustained a demented lunatic in power.

  53. The law of justice demands that if the President cannot be sued by citizens then he cannot sue any citizen either. The President’s protection from defamation lies in the Constitution not by the President actually suing any citizen. With an independent Judiciary, this is a sheer waste of national time. If the President loses these suits can the Courts award costs against him? Where did our President get this bad habit of trying to make a quick buck at every turn? Don’t we pay him enough? When is he going to learn that he has lost his status of individual citizen for five years and that he is no longer Michael Sata the individual but His Excellency the President of Zambia, that he is now a Constitutional institution rather than Michael Sata banshi Mulenga?

FTJ regretted the move but it was too late. The same thing will happen to Mr. Sata. It is said, “People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.” Even what was supposed to be hidden by the tribunal will now come out. My advise to HH is just gather your ‘ammunition’ and let the Zambians know the facts. We in the terraces know that Mr. Sata has been misled on this move. Pass me a bucket of popcorns while i enjoy this drama.

Its only that our president has short memory & this man could just be digging his own grave as he make HH popular. Meanwhile, Sata doesnt know that the majority Zambian s are not happy with the way he is governing the country & even his own cadres & one day Ukwa will find that he has sued all the Zambian people for defamation. Does this man have advisors i wander, is the wife DR not helping? We know he only has 7 guns probably he has seen an opportunity to make abit of some coins to add to the 7 guns. Meanwhile, all forward thinking Zambians let us mourn for our beloved country!

  59. It is shocking to hear a head of state sueing citizens on defamation allegations. What is more shocking is that such presidents do exist in the world. This is only in countries where laws are not respected. A citizen can not sue a sitting president because of his/her status with immunity of being sued. Where then, is the citizen recourse? We have had four passed presidents and non ever sued a citizen while in office. Ist that the presidency office has ceased to be regarded as the father of the nation? or may be Zambians put wrong people in position of authority?. The challenge is with the judiciary to handle this matter as Zambians wait for fairness in the eyes of the law in our nation.

  64. Mr Sata is abusing his presidential privileges. UPND should seek a Judicial review on whether Mr Sata’s decision does not amount to unfair justice since all are supposed to be equal before the law.  The Judges should guide on whether Mr Sata’s lawsuits  should be allowed or not. From a layman’s point of view, Mr Sata should waive his immunity, if he wants to sue individual citizens.

  65. Justice for all is right it does not make sense for the president to start suing anyhow and without purpose at all. The president should also realize that he is in power and all are looking at him as a president but if he starts intimidating citizens then we are a lost nation for sure. This is the first madness of its kind in Afriaca if not in the world where the whole president sues citizens instead of protecting them. Anyway where there is madness anything is possible and we seem to in it for a rude shock. What a president I end here!

In the olden days, everyone involved would have been visited by SITET, but Sata is more civilised. Lets see what proof they have together with every jackass who has been pandering this lie for so long now. Tumimone nomba imwe bakapoli.

  69. Rather suprising. If President can not be sued by Citizens, then the President should not sue Citizens!.:x

  70. #82 Kamwendo, 
    RB sued a lot of people for defamation and other fabricated cases. He discontinued the cases after loosing the elections because he had no evidence or the judges to fix the outcomes. The Presidents who were called thieves did not respond because they were in fact thieves!! We have London judgements pending and a fugitive son of a president, what evidence do you need to show that these people plundered the country.

  72. How can a nation tell they have a leader in place? It is very very simple. A true leader never has time for small matters especially concerning his critics as he is spending hours not ending on important issues like how to improve education, agriculture, job creation, ensure media freedom, imporving relations with other nations to the benefit of his country. This can not be said of Sata even for a second. He is busy suing his citizens. When did a sitting in president give testimony in court. This is using under hand methods to supress freedom of expression. The target PF we know is that Mmembe is facing stiff competition from Dairy National Paper and free online news, he is again at it fighting competition through the president’s office. It won’t work Fred….

  74. Remember what Super Ken said, Sata is good for Opposition not President. I feel sorry for those that serve under him just to have a job, in their heart of hearts they really do not believe in him if they have been to school. How do you intimidate the people you govern, the same things he was bringing against Rupiah he is doing them, politics is really dirty. Sata is not clean we all know that so he should not use the Judiciary to silence the opposition he should just prove himself right.

  76. When Sata was in opposition, he could insult his opposition left and right but that he is in Govt. you dare not criticise him. We are in for rude awakening. Who does not know that M’membe and his colleague Mutembo Nchito are Sata’s friends? HH was merely making a remark about it and stating what was common knowledge. M’membe promoted Sata through and through mainly driven by the pseudo nationalism to sustain his hidden agenda.

  77. How we miss Rhupiah already. Msogoleri must have a very big heart. In my opinion, the ex – president was more tolerant and this left alot of room for people to debate.Even when something was false, the man rarely reacted. Lomba aba ayasu, akabakambako patonto, yakwela kale BP, pela akachite kupona siku liyakina coz in that office, people talk. How many lawsuits are we going to see b4 the next election? only God knows but surely this is not the way to go. May be he thought it was a luxurius job but let me tel him, this is one thankless job. No matter how good the effort, people will still remain disgruntled. Be tolerant bashikulu

  78. Zamboy. Your Senga words are true to the point. How this could be translated into English without losing the actual tone and meaning of your words and I quote “Lomba aba ayasu, akabakambako patonto, yakwela kale BP, pela akachite kupona siku liyakina coz in that office, people talk”.

  79. @71 Politico Observer, you are dead right! This case, like the “Chiluba is a thief” case, will bring a lot of information about the president to the surface. It is survival time so the defendants will dig out anything relevant that they can tell the court. We are looking forward to the beginning of this case. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones!!! Good luck to the plaintiff and to the defendants.

  81. Who is above the law? Should we practice equal justice for ALL? What does our constitution say about the president suing citizens or citizens suing the president? Those that have taken Law say something that makes sense, don’t shy away.

  83. We have a president who thinks it’s ok to insult people and yet it’s not ok for others to return the favour. He insults former president Bush, during a meeting which was open to the media which was so irrelevant (there’s a place and time for such) . What was he thinking when he knows the whole world is watching? He imprisons someone for 3 months because they said someting he did not like! He is now on a suing binge and suing anyone who even sneezes in front of him! He needs to learn ethics and communication because he clearly deos not know how to deal with people. What’s with the scare tactics and the intimidation? Surely you can not sue or put the whole nation in prison now, can you?
    Please Mr. President, if you don’t know your job, let others do it for you, who know how!
