Kaizer Zulu Court Aides
Kaizer Zulu Court Aides

The court case involving President Edgar Lungu’s Special Assistant for Politics Kaizer Zulu has been discontinued.

According to court papers this morning, the state has discontinued the matter after receiving instructions from the Director of Public Prosecutions chambers not to proceed.

The matter has been discontinued due to insufficient evidence.

Mr Zulu, 43 a civil servant of Lusaka’s Woodlands area, was facing two counts of threatening violence and failing to take precaution against injury.

Last week, Enock Kavindele junior withdrew the Criminal complaint he filed with the Police against Presidential Political advisor Kaizer Zulu which followed a shooting incident at Chrismar Hotel.

Mr. Kavindele 42 made the withdrawal in an application before Lusaka principal resident Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile this morning.

He told the court when the matter came up for trial that he and Mr. Zulu have decided to put the past behind them as brothers.

Mr. Kavindele said his decision to withdrawal the matter is without any coercion stating that as a Christian, forgiveness forms the basis of his beliefs.

Magistrate Mikalile however, only granted the withdrawal of the first count that of threatening violence.

The second count of failure to take precaution against causing injury could not be withdrawn because it is solely up to the State whether to withdraw or not.

  1. It appears ruling party politicians or those in good books with them basically play ”organized crime syndicates”. I mean if this is not what organized crime is about, then what is it?

    • The president appoints the DPP

      The DPP overrules the court of laws and including the prosecutors.

      When and if the Court of laws convicts someone, the president has the power to pardon the convicted person.
      Why have the Court of laws?
      Why and what proof does one have that a judge NOW CAN NOT and will NEVER convict a pro PF.

      Well I learnt something today- the incumbent regime is and will always be above the law.
      Unbelievable
      A sad day for the judiciary system

      Thanks

  2. This was expected. No one is surprised. We all know Lungu has no guts to fire anyone. Just look at how he handled the Hapunda issue hiding behind Chama. When Lungu met Hapunda at the airport, a day or so after the latter was fired, he reached out to him and said it was Chama who had fired him. That’s the day I knew that the man had no courage. If he couldn’t take responsibility of firing small Brian, do you honestly feel he can fire big wigs like Chikwanda and Kambwili? He can’t. This gun man Zulu knows a lot about Lungu, they have done dirty deals together, that’s why he has grown wings. But the demons in this gunman will manifest again. It’s just a matter of time before he is involved in another scandal. Watch the space

  3. I have applied to adopt two Zambian babies, (one from Serenje and the other from Chipata). I want to change their names to something quintessentially Zambian.

    So I think one is going to be Nolle and the other Prosequi. Nolle prosequi This tells the most story of our politician relationship with our Judiciary in this generation. Very historically apt, I think. Of course, I’ll give them a middle name too that is normal for those regions!

    • Try “Corruption” and “Thuggery” as middle names. It will sound great and it will reflect reality of Zambian Judiciary relation with particular political party.

  5. I thought this thing of “nolle prosequi” for pals/or for favor ended with Mutembo Nchito?? If the state has no evidence, why dont you just acquit the guy? But we know there is plenty of evidence ….

      Just imagine.I think they are the ones who would contaminate us with their ill gotten loots from road contracts.And as Kabimba said who would competently close his eyes to pray when Kaizer is present.

  6. It is clearly a political decision. There is evidence and witnesses. It all begun with the spineless Kavindele being coerced by the powers be, to withdraw his complaint. One justice for the privileged mafias and another for the ‘ordinary person’. There is no rule of law in Zambia. There is the rule of capricious men behaving according to the whim of their interests.

  7. What a sad development for Zambia! This is an indictment on the DPP, Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani and Lusaka Police Commanding Officer Charity Katanga. I don’t know whether these people have a clear conscience over this development. Edgar Lungu will one day answer for this manipulation of the justice system. People are watching and the truth will always be the truth and one day all the lies will be exposed.

  8. @KINGS

    You have a point.
    But the other point is this Kavindele boy might have been the aggressor in the drama.
    Zulu was armed. What was he supposed to do? Fold up his arms and wait for what?
    Zulu had to fire to scare the attacker away in self defense. Otherwise what was the gun for?

  9. The prosecution has obviously looked forward and decided not to embarass itself by pursuing a case where the key witnesses would have turned out un coorperative. The key witnesses have shown that they would not be helpful in this case. Unless they were other witneses, this case was headed for a loss

  10. As I stated would happen. This is good in the fact that the case actually made it to the courts. The police did their work as well. Kavindele Junior like father was a cowardly lion. Or maybe a woman was involved, so embarrassment averted. DPP though is a joke, a very big joke indeed.

    Viva President Nawakwi.

  13. My heart goes to the boy, and his relative MP Uncle who was called names for bailing him out for a lesser charge. The Uncle MP was warned not to help a relative, regardless that we are a ‘Christian Nation’. What double standards!

  14. One wonders what fuss and is special about this case.
    GBM has had 12 cases of assault out which 8 are of causing serious body harm. In all the cases, complainants have with drawn cases from court on account of reconciliation. There has been no such outcry. Why on Kaiser. Simply because he is political adviser to the President, he must be hanged. Kavindele has withdrawn the case and told Court that he is a Christian whose faith is anchored on forgiveness. What more do Kachemas expect. Please 2016 come quickly. We need to put this matter to rest. We have told you that you will not win on economic crises. Even if it will $1 = K50, HH will still lose. Why no cow dung or smell of he-goat in State House

  15. Edgar Lungu never wanted Kaizer Zulu to be prosecuted.Zulu should have been sacked when he was arrested.
    This country’s poor governance is leading us to a disaster.I only hope the new constitution will save us.
