The Lusaka Magistrate Court has discharged popular musician Fumba Chama popularly known as PILATO after the state entered a nolle prosequi.
Magistrate Aridah Chulu however warned Pilato that he had not been acquitted and he may be re-arrested for the same offence if fresh evidence is availed.
Pilato had been charged with one charge of conduct likely to cause the breach of peace following the release of his song titled A Lungu Anabwera which supporters of the PF deemed defamatory to President Edgar Lungu.
?And Pilato told Journalists outside court that he was happy with the decision by the state to discharge him just as he happy was when he composed the song ‘A Lungu anabwera’.
Pilato said the truth was the most arrogant reality on earth.
He has since vowed that he will go ahead and compose more similar songs.
Pilato was accompanied by scores of his fans including some musicians such as Maiko Zulu.
