The Lusaka Magistrates Court has set Friday, February 20, 2015 as the date, on which Director of Public Prosecutions -DPP- MUTEMBO NCHITO will appear in court and take plea.

Lusaka Magistrate, LAMECK MWALE has since issued a summon for Mr. NCHITO to appear in court.

Magistrate MWALE is expected to preside over the matter.

This follows the filing in of a new complaint against Mr NCHITO by former Finance Deputy Minister, NEWTON NGUNI.

Mr. NGUNI earlier filed the complaint in the CHONGWE Magistrate court, which was however quashed by the Lusaka high court, on grounds that the lower court was out of jurisdiction.

Mr NCHITO is facing nine charges of abuse of office among other charges, contrary to the laws of Zambia.

He is on March 13, 2012, accused of allegedly abusing his office by entering a nolle prosequi, in a matter involving SHUBERT SINKALA.

The DPP is also charged with procuring execution of documents by false pretences, contrary to the laws of Zambia.

Mr. NCHITO is also on dates unknown, but in or about JANUARY, 2011 by false and fraudulent representation as to the nature, content and operation of a document, said to have procured the execution of a document, namely an order of court.

The DPP is also facing charges of uttering false document, contrary to the laws of Zambia.

In other charges, Mr. NCHITO, on dates unknown, but between JANUARY 1 2008 and December 31 2009, as Chief Executive Officer of Zambian Airways, was party to contracting of a debt by the said company.

This was despite knowing or having reasons to believe, that at the time the debt was being contracted, he had no reasonable or probable ground of the company’s capacity to pay back the debt to the Development Bank of Zambia and other creditors.

    • Do you think there is a ‘cartel’? Haven’t you noticed that the only people who talk about ‘the cartel’ are their opponents? Do you have proof of this cartel?
      Let us be objective and not pre-judge the case. By the way, are the people bringing these charges clean? Remember, “He who seeks equity must come with clean hands”. Nguni is hardly an angel (maybe a fallen one!).

    • Has it crossed your mind that N’guni has also done his homework? He he has lawyers backing him. Dont think this case is being taken lightly. There is alot at stake. If the magistrate lets the course of the law to take its course, people will be surprised what will be uncovered. Wait and see. This is only the start

  3. The entire DPP in court? Shouldn’t this process be halted and a tribunal set up? But then again I do recall Mutembo arguing that tenure or indeed privilege and immunity do not cushion one from criminal courts so I guess he is in the right place at the right time…..

  4. Animal farm. Other animals are more special than others but it is one farm. The animals agreed to be EQUAL after their boss died, but later on some animals claimed to be more important than others which caused an uproar in that farm.

  5. Mutembo is going to jail.
    If he is clean, why should he hide behind the tenure of the DPP.
    DPP is an institution not Mutembo

  8. Mutembo went for RB without any reason, but just to fix him. Let him feel how it feels to be fixed as well. But it is worse for him for he truly owes us 14 billion.

    As a citizen, I need a share of the 14 billion Kwacha like yesterday.

    We have had enough of Mutembo, Fred and Kabimba.

    Our duty as citizens is to ensure that Kabimba, Mutembo, the Post and Guy scott do not (and strictly so) come to power. Not during our lifetime.
