Namulambe appears in court on assault charges


Former Mpongwe Member of Parliament Gabriel Namulambe has appeared before the magistrate court in Mpongwe district for assaulting a business man.


Mr Namulambe 49, appeared before Magistrate Dominic Lesa for one count of assault, causing bodily harm on Monday.


Details are that, on January 8, 2017, the former law maker is alleged to have assaulted Reagan Maison Njobvu 44 of Shaka Investment Farms in Mpongwe, following a dispute.


And when he appeared before the court, Namulambe asked the court to grant him more time to seek a lawyer.


However Magistrate Lesa turned down the request, adding that Mr Namulambe should have acquired a lawyer as soon as he committed the offence.


Magistrate Lesa has since adjourned the case to February 24, 2017 for the commencement of trial.


  1. I lost respect for Namulambe the moment he jumped from MMD to join PF, his interview on Muvi tv The Assignment proved that he was a gullible and selfish leader serving himself than being a servant of the people. Let him face the wrath of the law

  2. @Igwe, how does PF come in? Namulambe and the guys he assaulted are all Upnd members so what has PF got to do with this issue?
