Hakainde-Hichilema
The anxiously awaited case in which UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and five others are facing treason charges has commenced in the Lusaka Magistrate Court this afternoon.

And Mr Hichilema has refused to take a seat before Magistrate Greenwell Malumani in protest against what his lawyers say is the way the opposition leader has been treated.

Mr Hichilema who is represented by a team of lawyers comprising Vincent Malambo SC, Hon Jack Mwiimbu, Keith Mweemba and Martha Mushipe is appearing for mention and an explanation of the four charges slapped on him.

Mr Hichilema’s wife Mutinta, family members, opposition MMD leader Nevers Mumba, People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti ,ADD Leader Charles Milupi and some of his supporters are present in court.

Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba is conspicuously missing from the court session.

Security is tight at the court premises with Police in full riot gears manning the court and nearby places.

And defend Lawyer Jack Mwiimbu told the court that the other accused persons other than Mr Hichilema we’re severely tortured even on their private parts.

He said the accused were made to open their mouths and pepper sprayed in the mouth causing excruciating pain

Earlier, Magistrates Kennedy Mulife allocated the matter to Magistrate Malumani after reading out the Case and names of the accused persons.

The court Room is full to its capacity with other siting on the floor.

As Mr. Hichilema walked into the court room from a holding cell, his party members where seen flashing the party symbol in court.

      In a christian country more than 50 years after independence when you see this happening and when you hear police looting items in HH’s house, breaking items and ‘urinating?’ In a suspects house, when you hear a mere party cadre Kennedy kamba claim that the PF won’t allow the UPND rally to go ahead and police cancel the permit, when you hear mumbi phiri say we can confine HH and you see the police rush to arrest HH on treason charges, when you hear a former priest frank bwalya celebrating at a rally that HH is drinking from jail just know that iliko bad Zambia!
      Be worried very worried if you don’t understand the meaning of democracy.

      And all his bunch of lawyers are tongas. Can’t this dude do anything without involving his tribe’s mates. This guy is a definition of tribalism and he thinks he can be president like that. Tonga lawyers are dull. They can’t win an of your case. Just recall how they chickened out leaving you alone to fend for yourself.

      So they are telling me in zambia, one can be arrested for a crime committed by someone else?

      – Why is HH’s driver not the one being charged? He’s the one who was behind the wheel & refused to stop. NOT HH.
      – Why are the actual UPND cadres who hurled insults not being charged?

      Anyway with a rotten judiciary & illiterate Police Force headed by an Ex-Katondo Street Forex Trader Minister Kapyongo, one can’t expect much.

      TONGA CHIEFS, YOUR SON IS NOW A DEFENDANT IN COURT
      ================================
      This is not customary “Kangaroo”courts where you make unnecessary comments. Tone down or you will be for contempt. We will hear whether your SON is innocent or guilty. A fair trial is now underway. It’s not Chagwa’s EXECUTIVE but Mambilima’s JUDICIARY. I am calling on all LT paraded Tonga chiefs to enroll under a very special grade one class. Only one subject will be taught, which is CIVICS. The first lesson will be the distinction between Customary Laws and Civil Laws. We shall touch a little bit about Criminal Laws too. Come one, come all!

      – HH is like Jesus, who on palm Sunday was welcomed on palm Sunday entering Jerusalem on a donkey. HH received a thunderous welcome when he entered Mongu in an old Toyota GX.

      – The following week Jesus was accused of treason for calling himself King of the Jew. Lungu the humble snake, has slapped HH with death sentence treason. He’s just fulfilling prophesy by Prophet Bushiri.

      – Garry Nkombo is like Simon Peter who confronted the roman soldiers as they arrested his master at night in garden of gethsemane & cut ear off a soldier. However Garry was clobbered by PF brutal police.

      – Kaizer & the PF Police who raided HH are the Roman soldiers who went to arrest Jesus, whipped 40 lashes on Jesus. They tortured HH’s co-accused with poisonous teargas, squeezed balls of HH’s son & servant & put pepper-spray in their mouths. They’ve tortured HH by making him sleep on a hard floor without a blanket or mattress.

Ed Milliband is Labour Party and he conceded defeat to the Torys’ David Cameron and has since left the helm of the Labour Party!! He didn’t petition anything and accepted that the British voted for Cameron. Don’t deceive people, here hh lost and REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE RESULT!! The majority here in Zambia chose ECL not hh.

    IT IS GOOD THAT THE TRIAL HAS STARTED SO THAT WE CAN FOLLOW THE ARGUMENTS AND MOVE AWAY FROM SPECULATIONS. I can see that one of the charges is using insulting language against ( I think against HEAD OF STATE)” Hyena(Chimbwi) no plan”,wonder if that too is treasonable, but there shud more. Also by refusing to take a seat I think HH is delaying his case even longer. THIS MAY BE A LONG HAUL FOR HIM as the STATE MAY CHOOSE TO EVEN RESORT TO PRELIMINARIES just to dig in. IT COULD HAVE HELPED TO DIALOGUE AND PERSUADE THE STATE TO ENTER A NOLLE PROSEQUI, on conditions BUT HIS SUPPORTERS HAVE INSTEAD RESORTED INSULTS. ELISHA MATAMBO got a NOLLE PROSEQUI and he has been QUIETE. That is what state machinery does when one dares it too much-BRACE FOR A TOUGH TIME!!.

Tongas are fan and selfish, when HH lost to ECL they started beating people from other provinces, Easterners, Luapulans, Northerners and Muchingans. The question is what crime did they commit? Did the people in the said provinces take revenge of what the southerners did? The answer is NO, showing that the Easterners, Luapulans, Northerners and Muchingans are mature people. When late MC Sata lost to PL Mwanawasa no people from the said provinces rose against the Lenjes or Lambas. Please judge for yourself.

    LT, where are the other two charges before Terrible makes a comment. Unlike ********** he does not comment on hearsay or propagate false news.

    As for the picture of HH, posing to be thoughtful, it’s typical of people who want to pretend to and make a show to be thinkers. They copied this from postures of thinkers like Nyerere, KK, Mandela. Dont be fooled, its just a copycat pose, I am sure that HH has been gifted with money, but he arrived late when brains for politics were being dished out. Just watch them they are quite a few but I can’t mention their names. The tragedy is that they actually believe it probably because of sycomphants surrounding them.

    I’m saddened by this pf upnd hatred. It makes people so free to the extent of being intoxicated plus these Human Rights haa. But anyway that’s the goodness of democracy. Go to some of these Middle East countries, some of this nonsense, you won’t wake up the nxt morning. just don’t know where we’re heading. By the way this “freedom of speech” why can’t it be called “Freedom to insult”

    Please this behavior of Lungu you are supporting will come to haunt you and it will be too late to realise. Just wait. Ask Tayali he will tell you.

    As for the start of the case itself, as per my prediction last week, it will follow the petition case, UPND lawyers will apply for adjournments, use all sorts of diversionary tactics including refusing to take a seat or plea whatever LT means. Maybe it didnt matter for the petition as no individual was personally affected. But this is different, there is a guy whose stay in Remand prison will be prolonged for every theatric antics of his lawyers. But at the end of it all, the lawyers will blame the judiciary for his extended stay.
    The inclusion of the famous lady is also curious, she is facing charges before LAZ for which she may lose her license, at that time they will ask for an adjournment to find a replacement. But its good for making money anyway.

    HH,I am non partisan please note that you are not supposed to be treated like that. Sincere apologies however UPND and PF are the most rubbish parties to have ever emerged on the Zambian landscape. And I am told we have a human rights commission in Zambia. PF has lamentable failed, the economy is in doldrums only to end up torturing opponents

    All believers need to pray for the sick , widows,widowers, poor,rich, oppressed, oppressor, orphans, and all people.
    the story of Jacob and his children reminds us that even though we come from different mothers and fathers, we had one spiritual FATHER. OUR FATHER LOVES US THOUGH WE MAY HATE EACH OTHER…….
    The worst part of our lives is that we think we are better than the others when we all sinners needing GOD’s grace……
    Tell us if your love for either HH or President Lungu makes you a better Christian before GOD…..
    Do you think this world will a better place without HH or Lungu….
    These men are mere mortals who will not live beyond 100 years. Eternity belongs to GOD alone…. Watch and pray for your salvation

    Most of GBM’s associates have told him that he’s being used. It’s likely he even left the country on Good Friday. UPND is a Party of the Tongas, by the Tongas, for the Tongas. Mutinta Mmembe has already announced at Duncan, Gilbey & Matheson that she wants to reclaim her father’s Party, so where does that leave GBM? Has Situmbeko Musokotwane, Kabinga Pande, Geoffrey Lungwangwa, Princess Kasune, Mutale Nalumango, etc approved HH’s exhibition of such unreasonable conduct?Surly, there must be a smart way of wrestling power, not what are seeing

    Wait a minute, I thought a magistrate court cannot hear a treason case. Is this another time wasting tactics by Lungu and his minions?

    ‘Mushota’ doesn’t really exist as a single species. She/he is a mystical creature that metamorphosis-es to different forms when it suits them. It is astonishing that some bloggers can ‘agree’ 100% with someone who is so incoherent, inconsistent, is always deliberately a pain in most peoples sides and laughs at normal human functions, while proclaiming to be the ‘high and mighty’ achiever. Whoever this person is, or these persons are, its all a sick venture of playing with peoples’ minds – especially the gullible.

    HH Cannot let go there is a lot at stake here his SA friends have told him to keep fighting on it is a follow up from privatisation.let HH know that terrorism will not win him votes in Zambia.Look at the peace that has prevailed the few days he has been in prison and by the way if you are innocent you surrender peacefully to avoid harm once you go hiding in bunkers you are guilty to get you out it is either taser or teargas be wise ask US police.

    For the sake of effecting continuity in the administration of UPND, as HH faces a long-term legal battle in Courts of Law, the party must appoint GBM as UPND’s ACTING PRESIDENT.

    The trouble with our justice system is that suspects are considered guilty until proven innocent. HH isn’t yet a convict, however some of his rights have been taken away. Police should consider placing him under house arrest, that will restore atleast his conjugal rights. As a Tonga Bull he really needs it

    Just like the economic JERABOS are scrambling for a share of the Kitwe’s mine dump in the Copperbelt Province, a fleet of “JERABOS-Lawyers” are scrambling to enlist themselves up to share HH’s wealth in a newly discovered fertile treason case.
