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The second count of failure to take precaution against causing injury could not be withdrawn because it is solely up to the State whether to withdraw or not.
