There was drama at the Lusaka magistrates’ court yesterday when William Harrington, through his legal counsel, asked the court not to entertain a lengthy adjournment being sought by the state in the Silvia Masebo corruption inquiry case.
The was after state asked the court to adjourn for 21 days the case were William Harrington is challenging the decision by acting Chief justice Lombe Chibesakunda not to constitute a tribunal to investigate corruption charges against tourism and arts minister, Sylvia Masebo.
When the matter came up for inter parte hearing yesterday, the court was expected to hear the arguments from Harrington’s lawyer Gilbert Phiri and the Attorney General’s chambers. However, the chief state advocate, despite having received the written submissions from the applicant’s lawyers, requested that he be given an additional 21 days to file written submissions.
Harrington, speaking through Phiri, contended that the adjournment being sought by the state was excessive as he would equally need time to respond to the written submissions.
The court, in its ruling, agreed with Harrington’s argument and consequently ordered the state to instead make submissions within 14 days from yesterday, and that Harrington should respond within seven days after the state’s submission.
After the Harrington response, the court will enter judgment on whether a tribunal should be constituted to investigate alleged corrupt acts by tourism minister Sylvia Masebo. The verdict will be delivered in open court.
Of-course she will be acquitted who’s is gullible to think this is going anywhere
What churns my stomach is why money is wasted on these court cases
Small country with small minds occupied by ignoramus subordinates, if this is news at all
Mushota ,,at least good contribution today for the very first time and not that kind of cheap and senseless braggadocio.
i have observed that most of your comments lacks merit. i wonder what kind of a person you are. Remember the Dora Siliya case? it started the same way after MMD left Gvt & Dora is in court. The same can happen with Sylvia. Whether money is wasted or not justice should prevail that is why courts are there.. not all in the jury are pro PF. I believe the jury should be pro justice.
For the first time, Mushota you have talked sence. What took you so long?
Yes from the time Daniel Mwamba (aka Mushota) exposed herself she has become more sensible in her comments
masebo sperm bank time will come for you explain all issues.
yuo think ukwa will be president for ever.
U call a lady a “sperm bank” honestly. A hard working lady like Hon Masebo who needs respects good for nothing psychos like u. Tell me how were u conceived? Ddint your sick old erectile dysfunctional monkey call father deposit his dry low count slow moving rotten sperm into your mother cervical cancerous cinyo? What about your miserable siblings? Were they conceived with urine? Wasnt it the same sperm u r despising n using it to descredit a fantastic lady. Noko ngatabamutomba epo kawiso kafwila dont blame other beautiful women who manage to attract men. Cibole cobe ****** we.
Why are you taking long on masebo,, yet you are quick on RB, Dora and others??
British qualified Gilbert Phiri is a sharp and brilliant Lawyer, wish this was an open trial with re examination, the Lombe Chibesakunda’s advocate would crumble. Watching Lombe Chibesakunda’s hiding and abuse tricks with interest…………. Abash corruption , Abash office abuse in Lombe Chibesakunda’s
the one who works in the field must eat what is in the field,bravo masebo ur a un touchable now madam and safe in the hands of pf for the next 90yrs to come.
If we didnt have so many people in Zambia believing in this tribal proverb, Zambia would have been a better place by now, even better than Zimbabwe
@ Bauer: What kind of thinking is this? Proud of theft? You should be ashamed of yourself. Anyhow PF will not survive 2016 and People will be held accountable. Keep on Dreaming; Zambian people will sort you out, by the ballot.
This case is going nowhere for as long Chibesakunda top PF carder is at the helm of the Judiciary
Masebo will always use ichinena to jump from one ruling party to another, watch the show.
This lady was mentioned in the hearsey corruption scandle at local govt. Now it is uwto. This women is not clean and she fails to burry her tracks…
Masebo , your chinena is waning slowly, it will not yield the sweet berries for the future government
What are the corrupt practices is she alleged to have committed?
the use of insults when refering to political persons or just about anyone should not be condoned and even published. We are all very frustrated with the happenings by top political leaders and curruption but let us stay civil even when we comment. Masebo is a mother to children and deserves to be respected and when found guilty then she will pay for her alleged sins not till then.
Sata calls Chanda Chimba as chanda chwimbwi. He calls Fackson Shamenda as F***k. These are parerents. Let respect for politicians start with head of state.
Ba pf u know very well that what’s soup for the goose is soup for the gander! If u can be quick to act on cases involving opposition, do the Same with your cadres.
Is Zambian Tourism only about Wild Animals nothing else?? Mostly see Masebo with Game Rangers around her?? Hope you have not made them your body guards instead of guarding the Animals from Poachers
