and Mathews Zulu.

The Tribunal probing suspended Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito says calls for Justices Ernest Sakala and Mathew Ngulube to recuse themselves from the hearing are premature.

Tribunal Secretary, Mathew Zulu says such demands are just aimed at derailing the process.

Mr. Zulu has told ZNBC News in Lusaka today that none of the complaints and claims against the two Justices have been brought to the attention of the tribunal.

He urged anyone with complaints to follow the proper channel and take their complaints to the tribunal.

Mr. Zulu says the public and those involved must let the tribunal do its work without interference.

He said the Tribunal remains resolute and steadfast in completing the mandate given to them by President Edgar Lungu.

Suspended DPP, Mutembo Nchito and various stakeholders have demanded that Justices Ernest Sakala and Mathew Ngulube recue themselves from the hearing, accusing them of being interested parties.

And the Foundation for Democratic Process FODEP has welcomed news that president Lungu intends to amend the terms of reference for the tribunal constituted to probe Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito.

FODEP Executive Director McDonald Chipenzi says there is nothing wrong for the terms of reference to be amended if some of the charges against the DPP are defective.

Mr Chipenzi was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.

He however says steps to amend the charges might also mean that proper ground work was not done.

Mr Chipenzi has appealed to the tribunal to work within the timeframe as it probes Mr Nchito, in an effort to ensure that justice is not compromised.

Meanwhile, Mr Chipenzi has said the tribunal should ensure that its proceedings are open to the public.

He says public hearing of the tribunal is necessary for transparency to prevail.

    • When people were calling for Mutembo Nchito ” not” to be the prosecutor in the matter that – RB is suing Mmembe, he said that there was “nothing wrong” with him taking up RB’s case to prosecute his partner in crime.

      Now Nchito and Mmembe have mobilised stoogies who are making noise, calling for the two Justices to recuse themselves.

      What a load of rubbish !!!!

      Since Nchito claims he is 100% innocent and wants this hearing to be in the public. Then why is worried that they are there to get him.

      They can only get him if he as skeletons. And I were him, I would keep silent and turn up to vindicate myself.

      However, he knows and we know he is guilty – sh***ting in his pants.

      Besides ,its only an enquiry, which has been set up to fact find and make recommendation for…

    • Corrections..!

    • Forgive me if my wrong, but wasn’t Nchito throwing tantrums to be included in the Mmembe case when even PK Chishala could see that the man had a conflict of interest in the case? What a load of nonsense!

  2. Forget about Rainbow party Mushota.
    This party was brought in dead. It is in Post newspaper alone not on ground.
    Kabimba does not have what it takes to be called HE. Far from it.
    He is a quack, failed lawyer, cheek, pompous nothing more but useless

    • Nchito appears to be a man without morals. He is the first person who should have rescued himself from a number of cases .As a matter of fact he should been suspended a long time ago to pave way for investigations against him to run smoothly.

    • You can talk, what about the current head of state. Am sure he is a very successful lawyer.
      Any fool can be a head of state, only a wise man can govern.

  3. @ Mushota… Perhaps the rainball Party has promised to restore your virginity which you lost when you were only 16 yrs .. Sha!!!!

  4. Like Sex, Great conversation only happens in private. What I hear from learned colleagues in private is that if President Lungu allows Mmembe and the tandem of evil cartel to control the situation, he should count himself jailed after leaving office. Here is Lungu’s mandate; disarm the cartel or face the music. Mmembe and the cartel suffer from that illusion of respectability, because his media outlet – Post and organizations like FODEP / LAZ are used to indoctrinate the larger public into a false sense of moral superiority.
    Justices Ernest Sakala and Mathew Ngulube should refuse to be bullied into recusing themselves from the tribunal. Justice Ngulube was bullied into resigning his position as Chief Justice, this is no time to take lectures from people without morals.

  5. In a hypothetical sense, we do not believe that the former Chief Justices Mathews Ngulube and Enerst Sakala had ever publicly quarrelled with nor declared Mutembo Nchito and his associates as sworn enemies. Hence the childish cries to request that the two former Chief Justices recuse themselves from the Tribunal sounds extremely absurd.

    Nchito and his friends are just revealing that they clandestinely (secretly) sowed bad seeds against the Justices Ngulube and Sakala in order to weaken the Judiciary as they plundered the national financial resources for their businesses. We wonder as to how louder Nchito and Mmembe would have been yelling if the Late Mukelebayi were to be alive today to adjudicate in the Silungwe Tribunal. This Tribunal will expose tons of rotten rats.

  6. Ububi ulichipuba? Ichipuma ukubipa! Ati rainbow fyototo fyototo uko kwine ba shetani ba kantu!

  7. PF /MMD cadres amaze me with their shallow thinking.
    The former chief justices were corrupt and remained corrupt. Under Levy their names were on the Zamtrop Account therefore it’s equal important to note it was Mutembo who was a chief prosecutor at the time and it’s Levy who made it clear that they have to go and not Mutembo
    This tribunal will not only bruise Mutembo even the Lungu as well and as things stand PF died with Sata and this is why Kabimba is using his connection with those delusioned PF hardcore supporters by Lungu’s leaning to Banda. The outcome of the 2016 elections will mark the end of Lungu. I do not know how Mulenga Sata feels to be at state house and witnessing his dad’s hard earned political party dismantled at a neck speed by a man with no vision of his own

    • The former Chief Justices will only be termed corrupt if any charges were proven in a competent court of law, not by The Post or its minions.

      Equally Mutembo remains innocent until proven otherwise by competent organs of the law. He is not innocent just because The Post and its minions say so.

      That is the beauty of the rule of law.

  8. No vision of his own but of the Zambian people and that’s why we voted for him and we will give him another vision for 2016 to 2021 And vote for him again. While you and your hate will disoriented you.

  9. Can the Zambian Government update us on the steps they have taken to make sure Zambia is safe following the recent terrorist attacks that killed and targeted 148 Kenyan University Christian Students a few days ago since Zambia was on high alert following the Westgate attack in Kenya in 2013. Uganda and Ethiopia seem to be protecting their citizens well. Zambia needs a well trained counter terrorist Police and Army unit and all immigrants need to be screened thoroughly. We are a Christian nation and we are praying and we also love and welcome immigrants however we need to take preventive measures. What is the African Union doing to ensure safety from terrorists attacks in Africa, we need action and not just meetings. Declaring Psalm 91 and the blood of Jesus Christ over Zambia.

    • Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu says government has heightened security measures following online reports that Zambia is among the countries targeted to be attacked by Al Shabaab Militia.
      Mr. Lungu told ZNBC News in a phone interview that people should also be on alert following these reports.
      He has appealed to the media to help government in sensitizing the masses.Leaked intelligence reports published by Standard Digital News state that Al-Shabaab who are linked to the recent Kenya attacks are contemplating attacking Kenyan interests in other countries starting with Zambia.However the report states that the timing, targets and methods are unclear.

    • The way we know Nchito if he had that much dirt on Ngulube he would have taken him before his so called task force. We know he wrote a letter to his “brother” Musonda at zanaco theartening to crush him if he stood in his way when the matter came up he didn’t recuse himself. We all knew he hated savior chungu because of roan air but he dudnt recuse himself. We all know he hates RB with a passion again he didn’t recuse himself so what is good for the goose! Just face the music because you know you where never fit to be DPP

    • Poor Mutembo. He probably thinks he is a Zambian who is entitled to a free, unbiased tribunal; that he is “not above the law”, but at the same time, he is “not beneath the law”; the the President will be duty bound to uphold the constitution and not let discredited ‘gun’s for hire’ drag the DPP to court without following what the constitution says; he thought he lived a free society where the judiciary is free from manipulation by the executive. He thought he could fight for his rights. But obviously he is mistaken. RB and his gang of thieves will try to make sure he does not. However, the Zambians will have their say come 2016. Watch out Lungu!

  10. But how come 90% of the probling members of the tribunal are all from the same region as Edgar Lungu.

    These guys have already predetermined the case.

    In short, the corrupt, tribal and useless tribunal has already found Muembo Nchito with a case to answer.

    • Hilda Malama
      Does it occur to you that most normal pipo don’t think like you? I did not even notice the idiocy you just puked.

  11. Edgar Lungu is really a useless and vision less president.

    Instead of consetrating his energy to fight the cause of the falling kwacha, the Embassy Park Man choses to fight Mutembo Nchito.

    How I wish he had died on the day he collapsed during women’s day.

    I think Zambia does not need Edgar Lungu.

  12. The best way of doing away with Edgar Lungu is to pray that

    he leaves this country.

    We depend on the Embassy Park to do us a favour.

  13. Mutembo Nchito is more popular nowadays than Edgar Lungu.

    Zambia is being ruled by a very dul president.

    N one can despute that, edgar lungu is innsane.

  14. We all know Justice Ngulube is corrupt. He received money from Chiluba to pay for his children fees in the UK and resigned in shame. He must recuse himself from this tribunal. Mutembo Nchito was hired by President Mwanawasa to prosecute Chiluba and his cohorts that included Justice Ngulube who was the recipient of corrupt money from Chiluba. He definitely has an interest in this tribunal.

  15. Mr. Zulu,

    It is most unfortunate that your knowledge of the principles of Natural Justice is equivalent to Hon. Chikwanda knowledge of financial matters, absolute ZERO.

    According to your “reasoning” (more likely stupidity), “…Justices Ernest Sakala and Mathew Ngulube to recuse themselves from the hearing are premature…”

    No Mr. Zulu, in order to avoid “perceived bias” (do you know meaning), now is the time to sort out absolute INDEPENDENCE of the Tribunal.

    By the way Mr. Zulu, what is your educational back-ground? Cadre? Typist? Learned person?

  16. knownymous
    Are you trying to show you know the Queen’s language? The word count is restrictive to write what you are trying to show off. At a neck spend means too quick

  17. The truth is Mmembe and Mutembo want to turn this tribunal into a personal war and vendettas. History always repeats itself. To them it is not conflict of interest when it is them prosecuting but is when they are being prosecuted. Mukelebai Mukelebai tribunal was tried in camera which Mmembe and Mutembo defended and prosecuted. This has been their medicine. It is has now become poisonous because it is them to taste it. They think themselves as standard and reference for moral standing which is a farce. The Chairman will rule that Mutembo’s concern are noted but the two justices will remain on the tribunal. Mmembe is finished and will be history in couple of years. He knows it that he has lost it and has no control over minds of Zambians anymore. His paper is nothing but lamentations.
