The Lusaka Magistrate Court on Tuesday heard how five other people accused alongside UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema of treason were tortured whilst in detention at Lilayi Police College.

And the Prosecutions team has made slight changes to the treason charge slapped on Mr Hichilema and five others by alleging that Mr Hichilema and five others to overthrow the government of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu on unknown dates but between 12th October 2016 and 12th April 2017.

Meanwhile, Mr Hichilema and his co-accused have been moved from Lilayi Police Training College to Lusaka Correctional Facility after Lusaka Magistrate Greenwell Malumani ruled that the accused are no longer property of the Zambia Police since they have appeared in court.

And Mr Hichilema who appeared for mention and explanation of the charge looked relaxed and composed and smiled at his supporters told the court that he fully understood the charges slapped on him.
He also the Court that he was attacked like a common prisoner for 15 Hours with his family.

Mr. Hichilema is jointly accused with five others, who include Hamusonde Hamuleka, Muleya Hachinda, Laston Mulilanduba, Pretorius Haloba and Wallace Chakawa for Treason, disobeying lawful instructions and insulting language.

The defence team comprising Vincent Malambo, S.C, Nelly Mutti, Hon. Jack Mwiimbu, Laston Mwana, Martha Mushipe, Chad Muleza, a Dr Mbushi and Keith Mweemba pleaded with the court that Mr Hichilema be allowed access to visitations from family, lawyers and a family doctor.

Hon. Jack Mwiimbu informed the court that those accused besides Mr Hichilema were severely tortured even on their private parts.

He said the accused were forced to open their mouths and pepper sprayed causing unimaginable pain.

And Mr. Malambo told the court that Mr. Hichilema was denied access to meet his Lawyers, his friends, his supporters and Doctors further demanding that the State disclose a purported stranger who visited Hichilema in the night on pretext that he was a pastor.

“Your Honour we ask for a forensic investigation as to who this Pastor was and how he was allowed to have access to the accused when the visitors that matter to him like Lawyers, Doctors, friends and family were being blocked?” Mr. Malambo asked.

Mr Malambo also pleaded that the accused should be allowed reading materials and that as a matter of law and humanity, punishment should only be effected after conviction.

He said the lawyers were not allowed in the last two days of Mr Hichilema’s detention at Lilayi and that before that, each lawyer was only given 20 minutes which he said was not enough time.
He said after speaking to the Inspector General of Police, health personnel were sent to him but not a Doctor urging that the Court must intervene to allow his doctor to assess his health.
Mr Malambo demanded that the family doctor examines him especially considering the amount of teargas Mr Hichilema suffered.

He said not even under a one party state which he said were difficult years were for political prisoners treated like this one in decent times.

“He was attacked at his place of residence at night. He was not a danger to police. Teargas was discharged in the room he was with family,” he told the court.

“HH was actually apprehended on 11th April without warrant. The manner of his arrest should cause concern to this court,” Mr. Malambo said.

And another defence lawyer Keith Mweemba also submitted that its unconstitutional for the accused to be incarcerated whilst waiting for charge sheet from the Director of Public Prosecutions Chambers.

Mr Mweemba said the court has jurisdiction to separate the charges so that the accused is not denied speedy justice.

The prosecution submitted that they would like for the matters to be referred to the High Court and a request was also made for the prosecution to give guidance on how to proceed in light of the Treason charge not triable by the Subordinate court.

But Magistrate Malumani quizzed the prosecutions as to what their intention was by combining a felon and a misdemeanour for it to be treason.

In Count One which is Treason, it is alleged that Mr Hichilema and others on unknown dates but between 12th October and 12th April prepared to overthrow the government of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

As the Magistrate was reading out the charge on treason, the court room broke into loud mummers.

In Count Two which is on Disobedience of lawful orders, it is alleged that on 8th April 2017 in Western Province, Mr Hichilema disobeyed an order of command that was duly made while in Count Three which is on the Use of insulting language, it is alleged that Mr. Hichilema on 11th April used offensive language towards police officers.

Among the people that were present in court are his wife, Mutinta Hichilema, Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) leader Dr Nevers Mumba, Alliance for Democracy and Development leader Charles Milupi, People’s party President Mike Mulongoti, UPND Members of Parliament and other party officials.

In passing ruling, Magistrate Malumani said the accused was entitled to medical facilities and services as this was a human right.

“I therefore, grant the accused rights to medical services and in case the accused has no personal doctors the state will provide,” he said.

He said the accused person has a right to seek legal representation and access to his lawyers any time he deems fit further stating granting visitation to his wife, children and five other family members whose names must be submitted to the authority.

Magistrate Malumani directed that Hichilema to be transferred to Chimbokaila from Lilayi police camp.

“Since the accused person appeared in court, is no longer a property of the Police as such can never be held from any other cell apart from the Lusaka correctional facility. He should be given access to all necessary things like mattress, food, water, and blanket and any other the accused may need,” he said.

The Magistrate however said state agencies were justified to limit the numbers of people to visit the accused for security reasons.

Mr. Hichilema’s lawyers also raised preliminary matters seeking the court to separate the charges slapped on him.

They told the court that the prosecution should be made to separate the charges as according to them, felony and misdemeanours case had been mixed.

The lawyers contended that Mr. Hichilema would be afforded a speedy trial if the charges were separated.

Magistrate Malumani also directed that Mr Hichilema must be allowed access and visitation by his spouse, children and five other family members.

He also directed that Mr Hichilema must be allowed to interact with his lawyers for at least an hour and not 20 minutes.

The Magistrate also directed that the State should allow Mr Hichilema access to personal medical service from a medical doctor of his choice.

Magistrate Malumani directed that all his rulings be adhered to.

He adjourned the matter to Wednesday, April 19 2017 and proceedings will be held in the morning in Court 12.

Meanwhile, the Lusaka High Court dismissed the application by UPND lawyers compelling the State to present party president Hakainde Hichilema to court following his detention last week.

In a ruling delivered on Tuesday, High Court Judge Gertrude Chawatama said she agreed with the submission of the Attorney General that it is the role of the trial court to establish the validity or otherwise of the charges and the trial court would enquire into the same.

She said the court was of the view that the proper authority at this stage to receive meaningful representations.

“Habeas corpus proceedings are not designed to forestall criminal proceedings. Habeas corpus cannot be used as remedy an internment that is allowed by law. This is not a fit and proper case for a writ to issue,” she said.

      I do not support treason but this case is what my grand pa would say WASHAOUT. This charge is going no where as there is no evidence HH tried to overthrow Mr Lungu. Watch this space and yes I am a common citizen and not a lawyer. (2) Yes HH was or could have been in the convoy but there is not really evidence HH was on the the convoy as per the video. So ni WASHAOUT chabe. Making HH popular again continue doing good work ba PF.

      It’s not like, by torturing them ‘there’ it will deprive them having children. They had already had children. The tortures are synonymous with the crime being carried here.

      Was the magistrate doing him a favour by transefering him to Chimbokaila? Liyali Police detention is a much better holding facility compared to Chimbokaila. Anyway I believe the Lawyers asked for that transfer. HH’s Lawyers don’t know their heads from their behinds and have misled their client on too many occassions but this Human Hyena (HH) cretin is also a daft chap to be blindly following them- Chimbokaila is Zambia’s worst prison! If HH can survive 6 months in Chimbokaila he will have my respect!

The courts normally requires exhibit to analyze the extent of an occurrence from the accused person. I can tell you one thing My president ECL on this one has dented his image. If I were his advisor I wouldnt have arrested HH in that manner because just the way he was arrested it leaves so many questions unanswered. In fact the international community has lebelled Zambia having a dictatorship regime. People who didnt know HH the whole world is searching to find out and thats not good.

      HH has not insulted any one but merely poked fun at the brutal PF regime for being clueless.This is absolutely true. The problem with PF miscreants is that they belong to dark ages when one had to respected by virtue of being in position of authority without earning the respect.

      Even in them dark ages it can be argued that, when elderly man was caught stealing like what Lungu and his stooges are doing, they lost respect because of their conduct. Respect has to be earned not by force.

      All the mess Lungu is creating is damaging Zambia ‘s reputation as a peaceful country. Does he really deserve any shred of respect? I say NO. Only mad people with shrunk brains should respect the heartless torturer and killer.

      Issuing opposing views does not amount to insulting. But it amounts to holding those abusing the public trust to account.

      PF and minions will surely pay for these barbaric acts of torture against the detained UPND supporters on fake charges.

      Exactly my thoughts! This is becoming more interesting maybe the state might have intelligent information not yet in public domain. How else can the they date the case from 12 October 2017? The other issue is why was HH hidding in a locker in his home for more than 14 hours if he knew he was totally clean? You can’t tell me from 21 hours to 11 hours the following day day HH did not know what the police wanted from him. Again, such police presence and display which have never happened before in the past fifteen times that HH has been arrested also suggest something bigger. I suspect there could be more than what meets the eye in this all fiasco; Let us wait and see, as Liwewe would put it.

When one is in a drunken state, they are unstoppable. Let each province state have a regional governor, with own unique structure. It is clear we can’t have one Zambia. This is the only way of balancing power and putting a stop to the bad contagion from Lusaka! Why should the whole country suffer because of Lusaka?

    We were better off as a secular state. Since the declaration, too many religious fanatics committing atrocities in the name of religion! Which investor or tourist would want to risk going to a very unstable country like ours?

    So the attention has sucessfully been shifted from hearing the pettion to hearing treason charges..what a clever way of doing it.you can imagine it’s like a cinema hall changing to a movie that was not expected.

      Attention successfully shifted from Chagwa economic failures! How can a family survive on Kaloba month after month? Aren’t we ashamed as a people to be over 10 billion dollars in debt? How I wish the failing economy was receiving the same attention and zeal. What we are preoccupied with is how to get at each other’s throat instead of getting busy with work like the Chinese do. Our children should inherit a better Zambia but that takes discipline and hard work. Chagwa seems not in control! It seems his subordinates are in charge of sensitive national affairs and that is a very dangerous scenario for our country! The inevitable economic downward spiral is right ahead for those with foresight! It will be the common man to pick the pieces and cost!

    Where the f**k was GBM? I thought the man should be one of the arrested. I feel for hh. anyway whats the way forward for upnd incase its forever leader never made it? Can the southerners allow a northerner to lead them? I feel and believe all people are watching this very closely. GBM do you really think you can be accepted by the southerners to lead them? what is your heart saying? be sincere and follow your heart, otherwise you’re wasting your time following your party blindly.

    HH was supposed to be caged with GBM.These chaps thought they were on top of the world and ECL gave them enough rope to hang themselves.Let the Police and courts of law do their work professionally without undue pressure from any body

    Eeeeeish……..now we are being told that HH and others planned to over-throw the govt.between Oct.2016 and Apr.this year???The question to ask now is WHERE WERE THE SECURITY OPERATIVES ALL THIS TIME,just to bring out such issues after a traffic offence?I think there is need for the president to start getting worried now with these guys.How safe is ECL with this security really???

    You social refugees in foreign countries do not mislead us at home. Let the system assess HH.If he is inocent he will be freed

    There are lots more charges prosecution can add. HH really pushed the boat out. President Lungu calmly ignored and the state warned UPND time and again in their protests and refusal to acknowledge the will of the people. Now it’s time to understand their folly. It’s not playing out the way they threatened. Because sensible people just want security for their families and selves.

    The prosecution should not lose it. HH and his empty tins do not recognise ELC. What do you expect?The can do anything especially with the big drum-GBM.The Tonga introvert has sold all his morals. Makolo bamalesa kusobela na bana osamvela. Its lesson to HH. When you are freed dump GBM

LUSAKA TIMES YOU MUST LEARN TO DO YOUR JOB AND BLOCK BLOGGERS LIKE MUSHOTA WHO ARE VERY DIVISIVE AND DONT ADD ANY VALUE TO THE FLOOR. CAN LUSAKA TIMES WAKE UP FROM SLUMBER. BLOGGERS WHO ARE DIVISIVE IS THE LEAST ZAMBIA NEEDS NOW. LETS BE PROFESSIONAL AND POST THINGS THAT ARE CONSTRUCTIVE. TIME IS PRECIOUS TO WASTE ON NONSENSE. LETS VALUE TIME

    You mean their balls? That’s pretty uncomfortable, I can imagine. I wouldn’t do anything funny for hh, not worth it.
