Opposition UPND Copperbelt Chairman Elisha Matambo and three others have walked to freedom after the State entered a nolle prosequi after three months in detention at Kamfinsa State Prison.

They were arrested on August 14 2016 for and charged with aggravated robbery after they intercepted a motor vehicle that was allegedly carrying pre-marked ballot boxes heading to Kitwe along the Ndola-Kitwe dual carriage way.

They wondered why the materials were heading to totaling centres in Kitwe when voting had closed and results were being awaited.

The officials suspected that the votes in some polling stations in Kitwe were going to be manipulated as they would favour the Patriotic Front.
But when the matter came up in the Kitwe High Court, state prosecutors from the DPP’s Chambers announced that they were entering a nolle prosequi.

  1. Political arrests can’t survive in court. The new constitution states that the prosecutor should give reasons for entering nolle prosequi. Any reasons given?

  2. The urge to get an IMF bail out will compel them to do the right things. PF is the worst nightmare I have experienced

  3. PLAYING WITH THE LAWS & NOT BY THE LAW. I HOPE THE SPACE THEY HAVE CREATED IN PRISON WILL BE OCCUPIED BY THE RIGHTFUL OWNERS SOME DAY

  4. Kabomba, I feel sorry for people like. Read the whole story why they were arrested. From your English I can tell your level of education.

  5. This is a true reflection of chipante pants dogs, pretending to have knowledge but proving to be so ignorant of even a simple wording in law such as aggravated robbery. The ones who should have been behind bars are Kabotolo himself and Kaizer Chisindesunde. They have no case against the opposition in this case. These dogs must release all those falsely accused.
