The Lusaka High Court is tomorrow expected to preside an interparte hearing in the matter in which opposition UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has sued Times of Zambia Newspaper for defamation.

The court has also set January 25, 2016 for interparte hearing in a matter where Mr. Hichilema has sued Zambia Daily Mail Newspaper for defamation.

Mr. Hichilema has sued Times of Zambia, over articles published on December 28, 2015.

He also filed a suit against Times of Zambia based on another article published in the Sunday Times of Zambia on December 27, 2015.

Mr. Hichilema has also sued the Zambia Daily Mail Newspaper citing articles published on December 27, 2015.

He was accused of having blasted Chieftainess Mwenda of Chikankata District of Southern Province for welcoming Patriotic Front-PF Secretary General Davies Chama.

Mr. Hichilema has contended that the damage he stands to suffer owing to the articles cannot be redressed, if he was to lose the 2016 General Election.

This is contained in statements of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court.


  1. Ba HH! just drop those useless charges may be they can help to boost and enhance your popularity since you are dreaming of becoming a president……..

  2. A man who is clearly Tribal by his own admission and conduct and public perception, is in court to befuddle our Learned Judges!

    Of course they will throw this case out, based on that very fact. You can ‘t act one way and celebrate that fact publicly, then bristle because people point out the error of your way! Need to be a really bad lawyer to lose this one.

    Judges should appeal to the good common sense (which Zambian politicians may have), of all political parties to conduct themselves with respect in front of their electorate. Please, stop the drama and wasting court time.

  3. Effectively, the damage he stands to suffer owing to the articles cannot be redressed, if he was to lose the 2016 General Election BUT CAN IF HE WON??? Is this the suggestion here?

    • @ Patriot Abroad: You have been such a nisance lately! Do you actually have a decent job or you are busy selling cheeseburgers and chips at McDonalds, Kentucy or Burger King! What an you are!

  4. Why should you tell him to drop the charges you same people were saying it was true he phoned the chief? Let the all truth come out in court too many fake accusations on this good man. Times and Daily mail should be punished

  5. Patriot, you indeed has never stepped a foot in law class hence your atterances. Firstly, this is a reporter’s version far from exactness. What is to be heard tomorrow is on an affidavit and not statement of claim. You also display ignorance of elements for defamation!

  6. Patriot abroad you will soon be useless like a used condom 11 august is drawing near HH like any other citizen has a right to sue

  7. Comment:Chama and Tayali have really toned down on their out bursts could this be the dose they have taken. It is pay back time. Mumbi is next.

  8. I hope Tongas will not cry like a child left by his mother when their god is taken to court. Today it is a court of law and when your HH is taken there it will be PF court.

  9. Patriot Abroad you are right Makwingo is useless like a used condom hahahaha……….what is there to insult first of 0

  10. A man claiming for k1000 from all employees including cleaners getting less than that. Lets help him recover from intoxication from anointed chibwantu he got from his masters of the univers.

  11. I wish I was tall enough to see the ‘handwriting on the wall’ for August 2011….I missed elections last time, not this time around….
