Bishop Edward Chomba has denied appearing in Court to testify before Justice Mwila Chitambo where he is said to have insisted that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is a Satanist.
In a letter addressed to Messrs. Dindi and Company, lawyers representing Mr. Hichilema and obtained in Lusaka, Bishop Chomba lawyers say their client did not swear an affidavit in the High Court with respect to the injunction application before the court in which he repeated the defamatory words complained of.
The lawyers said their client is equally surprised that the Times of Zambia edition of 8th January 2015 carried a story alleging that Bishop Chomba told Justice Mwila Chitambo the defamatory words complained of by the way of repetition.
They said they are of the view that the story was a gross misinterpretation of the High Court proceedings and is also clearly prejudicial to their client.
The SBN Legal practitioners have since requested the Times of Zambia to take necessary measures to correct the wrong impression created to members of the public.
