Bailiffs yesterday morning pounced on Mushipe and Associates a law firm belonging to UPND lawyer Martha Mushipe for allegedly failing to pay rentals.
A ZNBC news crew that rushed to the scene found bailiffs removing office furniture and equipment.
One bailiff said the law firm has accumulated rental arrears of 14 000 dollars and 15 000 kwacha.
Efforts to reach Mrs. Mushipe for a comment failed as she could NOT be accessed from her office.
Journalists were blocked from entering the office by a firm’s employee.
A visibly annoyed secretary at the law firm said Mrs. Mushipe would only talk to the media after the case is dealt with by the courts of law.
