Former Post Newspapers employee, Abel Mboozi has engaged Lusaka lawyer, Kelvin Bwalya, to prosecute Lusaka lawyer, Nchima Nchito on charges of impersonation.
In this matter, Mr. Nchito is accused of having carried out his work as a lawyer for the Post Newspapers in Liquidation, when he was not appointed by the company’s Provisional Liquidator.
But Lusaka Magistrate, Greenwell Malumani adjourned the matter to June 5, 2017, for possible response by the state to the preliminary issues raised by the defense.
This was after Mr. Bwalya had asked for more time to study the case and also to obtain more instructions from his client on the matter.
In this matter, Mr. Nchito has refused to take plea, urging the Lusaka Magistrate court to dismiss the charge, because it is against the law.
Mr. Nchito has argued through his lawyer, Musa Mwenye that Directors of a company in liquidation, are allowed to hire lawyers.
