UPND President Hakainde Hichilema leaving the court

Defence lawyers have asked the Lusaka Magistrate Court to ignore the certificate of committal to the High Court for treason trial for UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his co-accused.

The lawyers have submitted before Magistrate David Simuusamba that the certificate of committal has been issued on a bad charge and therefore it is null.

They have also raised concern that the certificate was issued by the Deputy Chief State Advocate instead of the substantive Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

They further contended that if indeed the DPP had delegated the issuance of the certificate of committal, there was no letter to prove such delegation.

They also pointed out that the names of the accused appearing on the indictment are at variance with the ones appearing on the certificate of committal.

The defence team has submitted that the State’s action borders on constitutional matters which must be referred to the High Court for determination.
And the State could not respond to the submissions by the defence lawyers.

The State instead asked the Court to be given enough time to respond to the arguments by the defence.

Magistrate Simuusamba has since granted the application by the state for matter to be adjourned to tomorrow, Friday,5th May after the defence reluctantly agreed to the application.

Earlier, Magistrate Simuusamba ordered that the State gives back all the property which police officers seized during the arrest of Mr. Hichilema and his co-accused which include vehicles.

This was after he found merit in the argument by the defence lawyers that the said property was ceased without a seize warrant.

  1. A very busy day for me and the team but alas we are making progress. You cannot keep abusing people’s rights. Eventually the truth shall prevail. We are strong and ready

    • I followed the the case today. The state lawyers look so disorganized and don’t seem to know what they are doing. This case is surely a waste of time and state resources. Like Chipimo said it will lead to great embarrassment of those who came up with the treason charge.

    • The names of suspects and those on certificate are different. UPND lawyers should have let case to high court.

    • @ NEZ…..A very busy day my asi…busy commenting on Lusaka times ati busy day…please get a real job iwe makaka

      I thank you

    • You wonder if HH’s lawyers are really after making money by prolonging the case. Or its about keeping him inside by delaying the case, so that he can rot and they move on with new leadership at the UPND Helm. Basically to frustrate and drain him down.

      The very people defending HH are the same guys who behind the doors have saying its time for HH to go.
      You can tell the State will prolong this case. It also appears the defence team want the same thing, to prolong the case.

    • The lawyers representing HH, have let him down.

      They strike me as not up to the job

      Thanks

    • Ati “kikiki” chi Nez nabo ubufi! Nez (New evil zombie) advise Human Hyena (HH) that he should consider shaving his hair or he will start breeding a colony of lice in that afro of his.
      As I’ve said before best the cretin is released- but despite his continued lockup no one is bothered except Nez who pretends to be following the Hyena everywhere like a fly on its “arse.whore” as Nez friend chiyaya would say. Shame Human Hyena has failed to gather support for its release its wife Mutinta was busy threatening saying the nation would come to a standstil???? Delusional cretins these United Dunderheads!

    • This no time for village humor. You friend is wasting away.

      Just talk to ecl nicely.

      What has ecl to lose if you dont recognise.

      Ecl is president . Like it or not.

    • The proud and unhumble will be downtrodden. ECL is doing great work without interference from cray HH.

    • The UPND lawyers can raise as many preliminaries as they wish, and the state lawyers will not object but respond after careful study of the preliminaries so raised.

      This means that the state lawyers will be requiring time to study the raised preliminaries.

      Of course the innovative lawyers are UPND lawyers who are grabbing every opportunity in their way to maximize profit.

    • @NEZ
      YOU TAUNTED THE GOVERNMENT NOW YOU CAN SEE WHO IS ACTUALLY RULING.
      DEFINITELY NOT THE FAKE PRESIDENT,hh.
      YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME

    • That demon Katondo Boys is back from Pretoria. Has he come back to eat some Mumbwe Fhili pussi?

    • Even Somalia has a better judiciary than Zambia. Just something very, very wrong in Zambia. Really sad.

    • This is for the long haul. Lungu must be proven conclusively that he is a cracked up tinpot dictator, in the full glare of the international community. No short cuts.

    • i feel that even HH wife and GBM with the wife they shod be blot to book kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.

      m, sata said, more money in your pocket this is wat is happening now so be it mushipe mathar is doing just that making more money.

      time wasters, HH will ever be a republican precedent of zambia.

    • “…SET FREE”! NIMASOBELA. HH NOW IS A VIC (VERY IMPORTANT CRIMINALL) AND HE HAS TO FINISH ALL THE PROBATION AND POSSIBLY REMAIN IN THE BOARDING SCHOOL OR CONVICTED OF TREASON. AS IT STANDS NOW HE IS PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE UNTIL PROVED INNOCENT.

    • AT LEAST BA ECL BAZABAZAKO KUMATU TONDOLO. ENZE ANYANYA MUNYAMATA NA DICTIONARY YAKE YAMA INSULTS. NI, “SELA TUBOMBEKO”, YA PRACTICAL IYI YAMENE.

    • Fellow oppressed Zambians your days of sorrow will soon come to pass.The tables will turn soon. We are just waiting for courts to reach a certain point when we are very sure Justice will not prevail we shall strike like a python. The strike will be fast and lethal.PF is too over confident when they don’t know that the person they are persecuting is a product of the Aglo American Empire. HH can not be killed like a Dog. Zambia shall pay heavily.Tell Lungu if he has ears to listen.He should cry when time come.

    • HH must be the one to inc-rise the mukobeco number of people to hung d to 171. i hope they will not let go of a hut less leader like hem. foreword ku mukobeko.

  2. And i quote…” i will fall on you like a ton of bricks” …
    ” l look very small but i walk around with a big stick”

    2021 and beyond….its PF

    I thank you

    • Katondo Boys welcome back. 2020Vision has been keeping these toothless UPND minions at bay. 2021 we are still the winning team!
      While you were away Commrade, Kambwili was fired and Hadolf Hitler was arrested like a Nazi Rat!

  3. Chagwa is full of illegalities- pinched PF candidacy through treachery, sworn in by office clerk and not Chief Justice as required and now wants to use a deputy to pervert Justice? If there is money exchanging hands behind the scenes to pervert Justice, may the recipients never live to enjoy that bloo.dy money! May their lot be cursed so that they find no peace under the sun for they feared not Jehovah to speak the truth but used the name of God to commit unparalleled evil! May their love of money consume them and be their curse to all their generations! I pronounce generational curses on all these wicked people peddling injustice in the land of Zambia! May their end be a sad one!

    • Her name is marriam bah,she is the one who has signed the certificate to commit the case to the high court, her mother is Ugandan, her father Malian. She got no single drop of Zambian blood in her.

    • “If there is money exchanging hands behind the scenes to pervert Justice, may the recipients never live to enjoy that bloo.dy money!”
      THE ABOVE SENTMENT SUITS EXACTLY INTO THE ONE YOU ARE SYMPATHISING WITH. MONEY IS SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO THE PUBLIC FROM HIM. WHAT GOES UP DUBIOUSLY WILL ALWAYS FALL DOWN.

  4. Ba muuso ki malasambwa abatu, ki toompolo tuna kwa mulonga ya! Just who the hell saw treason in this case?I thought only Mushotas of this world in full “erection” mode would see treason where there is none! Bukuba ki ncwa, apuu!

  5. THE CASE WILL CONTINUE DRAGGING ON AND ON WITH ERRORS COMMITTED DELIBERATELY TO PROLONG HIS INCARCERATION. THEY WILL LOCK HIM WITH AN INMATE SUFFERING FROM DRUG-RESISTANT TB. WHEN HE HAS BEEN TAUGHT A LESSON, THEN HE WILL BE RELEASED AFTER ACQUIRING TB.

  6. OK. I FEEL BAD FOR SAYING THAT. BUT I FEEL THE LAWYERS FOR HH ARE NOT HELPING HIM. THESE LAWYERS WILL BE ARGUING AND MAKING MONEY OVER MATTERS THAT ARE IRELEVANT. THE LAWYERS SHOULD KNOW HH HAS A FAMILY, WIFE AND CHILDREN. HIS FRIEND GBM HAS DESERTED HIM. HH IN INCARCERATION THINKS ZAMBIA IS ON FIRE OUTSIDE. BUT THATS NOT TRUE.

    • chisenga I have been saying the same thing. he needs to fire his legal team if he wants a fair chance at freedom. I am not for any of the two HH or ECL but this fiasco is affecting the countries image.

    • Ah a, do lawyers have any other way of making money or it is through this same business? Who said lawyers are there to help you?

      The only time layers will help you is when you can’t afford one and the state gives you a lawyers or lawyers to help you out.

      Am sure that is not the case here. And this is always how lawyers get business. There is nothing strange about what the lawyers for UPND are doing.

      So just allow them to work. You mean you don’t like it when you friend’s businesses are booming?

      This business opportunity they have is no different from many other businesses they have always done through out their lives.

    • HH LAWYERS PLEASE LET THE CASE GO TO HIGH COURT.STOP RAISING IRRELEVANT PRELIMINARY ISSUES.
      YOU ARE THE ONES DELAYING THIS CASE.
      WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN HOW YOU MISLEAD UPND OVER THE ELECTION PETITION BY RAISING PRELIMINARY ISSUES EVERY TIME YOU APPEAR IN COURT.
      WHAT SORT OF LAWYERS ARE?IN THE LONG RUN HH WILL STAY IN PRISON FOR TOO LONG AND YOU WILL START BLAMING ECL BECAUSE OF YOUR DELAYING TACTICS.
      PLEASE GO TO THE MAIN CASE FORTHWITH.

    • As a citizen his entitled to counsel. Otherwise if they had refused he would have seemed others. I don’t feel a 16 man legal team is necessary. This issue will keep beinf adjourned and lawyers on both sides will have charged billables. Both sides are now trying to be creative because the case is thin. HH will remain in prison. Remember that lawyers will argue in court, outside its ‘my learned friend and colleague’.

  7. Why is the defence fighting tooth and nail to keep the treason within the magistrates court, if you know what I mean? Looks like someone is directing this defence what to say.
    The treason must be heard, not the same as petition….kikikikikiki.
    If he is released we simply pick .him up again, back to correction..

    • @Terrible you an amateur at law so don’t expose your ignorance. The PF want to take bad case at law to high court, but UPND lawyers want to take the PI to be determined by high court. This means that the case being fault it will be thrown out without it reaching at the stage were HH is being put to defend himself for treason.

  8. A COOKIE, a GARDEN-BOY charged with treason for trying to overthrow a Government!

    Only in Zambia a failed state with an illiterate police & rotten judiciary.

    – Free HH
    – Free Mwaliteta
    – Free all Political prisoners

  9. HH’s lawyers are big let down.i wonder which law school they went to.they always delay cases.look,whether HH’s lawyers like it or not,this treason charge will go to High court.
    IF THE OFFICE OF THE DPP HAS ALREADY ISSUED A LETTER OF COMMITAL,IT MEANS NOBODY WILL REVERSE THAT.SO THE BEST WAY IS TO LET THE HIGH COURT JUDGE START HEARING HH’S TREASON CASE THAN KEEP ON DELAYING IT IN A COURT(MAGISTRATE WHICH CANNOT HEAR A TREASON CASE).

    Its clear in the new constitution that a DPP or anybody representing this office can sign on a letter of commital to High Court.but as usual HH’s lawyers want to cheat him that this wrong.I DOUBT VERY MUCH IF HH’S LAWYERS WILL EVER WIN HIM ANY CASE!!THE MORE YOU DELAY,THE MORE YOUR CLIENT SUFFERS IN CHIMBOKAILA!!HH FIRE THOSE DULL LAWYERS!!

  10. I am impressed with the UPND Defence Team. They are pounding the Law making the Prosecuting Team confused and pedestrian. There is a difference between mastering Law and PF Cadreism. Clearly the Treason charges are trumped Up and the State is just inflicting pain and suffering on innocent Souls. The Prosecuting Team is bungling the Case b4 the Whole World ,making Zambia a laughing stock. HH and others have no case to answer and they should be released and the charges dropped. HH is getting value for money Legal Advice from these lawyers. As they say u pay peanuts u employ monkeys.

  11. Hang in there Bwana HH its all not in vain,you see even Jomo Kenyatta was jailed,Mandela was jailed and Martin Luther King Jr sacrificed much for his people to be free today.

    • IMWE PLEASE, DON’T COMPARE JOMO KENYATA, MANDELA AND ML KING Jr. THESE PEOPLE STOOD FOR THEIR RESPECTIVE NATIONS AND BEYOND. HH STANDS FOR TONGALAND AND HIS POCKET. NOT FOR ZAMBIA, WAPII. PLEASE, DON’T DEVALUE THESE NOBLE MEN WHO NEVER STOLE ANYTHING FROM THE PUBLIC.

  12. Hey guys, have you noticed what I have? HH is waving instead of the UPNDonkey forward sign. He has been corrected already?

    • Peter and Terrible shut your mouths you APES from Zinjanithropus era. Abash tribal sentiments they are un civilized in modern Zambia were people have inter married.PF don’t pull Zambia in welensky time of Rhodesia. We are a democracy and we shall remain so. This ka Lungu is just a ka human being part of a large society of Zambians.We shall not allow Kaponya type of Governance when the world is fast developing.Tell Lungu we don’t fear him.

  13. HH’s lawyers are at it again.any officer with Authority from the DPP can sign on letter of committal to High Court.ask prominent lawyers such as Prof.Patrick Mvunga,Sikota Wina and they will confirm it to you.
    Moreover,can magistrate Simuusamba reverse the decision already made by his boss the DPP to refer HH’s treason case to High Court?NEVER!!so these lawyers are just prolonging HH’s stay in Chimbokaila.HIGH COURT JUDGES ARE THE ONES WHO CAN CLEAR OR CONVICT HH!!!
    Please upnd for once HIRE PROMINENT LAWYERS TO HELP JUSTICE VINCENT MALAMBO!!!lawyers like Keith Mweemba,Marthar Mushipe,Nelly Mutti,cant win your HH any case in court.KEITH MWEEMBA(BEBETO) IS AN EX-FOOTBALLER AT LUSAKA DYNAMOS FC AND HE IS ALWAYS AT A TRAINING GROUND DRIVING A FINISHED TOYOTA COROLLA.CAN SUCH A LAWYER…

  14. The only competent Lawyer on Human Hyena’s (HH) team is Vincent Malambo the rest like Mashapless Mushipe and that clueless Mwimbu are just featherless vultures that have come to chew the remaining ill begotten funds Human Hyena amassed from the privitisation of ZCCM and other State Assets! Karma is a bitter pill to swallow! The only ones who are happy about this are HH’s fake legal team! Mushipe and Mwimbu how many cases have these two jokers ever won? I think they are in the same class as Wynter Kabimba! Jokers!

    • @2020vision
      How are you my friend…you are really killing all these UDPN bloggers….balibe mau
      @Mr Kudos….yes sir things are happening…we busy trying to to put Hungry Hyena where he belongs…..FYI..Treason carries death sentence….i will be glad to sign his death certificate
      …No Pulpable pulse

      …No breath sound on auscutation
      …Pupils fixed and dilated..not reactive to light and therefore i pronounce him dead

      2021 vote PF ( Edgar)

      I thank you

    • @Comrade Katondo Boys (Real) thanks and good to hear from you again comrade! We must also thank the likes of comrades Kudos for always defending our true hard working and caring Leader One ECL! Many thanks also to the likes of Oval Head, Snr Citizen, Patriot abroad, Nubian Princess, Terrible, Ndanji Khakis, Njimbu, and too many others to mention …even Mushota has now joined Team PF!!!!! Let’s not forget comrade Saulosi one of the oldest if not oldest Pro PF commentator! Guys one family- we may disagree on some internal matters but we remain a united PF online commenting community that wishes the best for all Zambians! We wish the best for all including United Dunderhead members to be saved from the sa.tan.ic blood thirsty spell they are under!

  15. Spaka like lilo and NEZ;has any South African protested in Durban outside the venue where president Edgar Lungu addressed the Economic Forum today?we have watched ECL on SA TV channels such as e-News,SABC and even here on ZNBC addressing the Forum in SA.
    You told us that regional leaders will force ECL in SA to release HH.has any leader done that to ECL in SA?
    Please stop dreaming and making HH look big when he is only well known in 3.5 provinces of Zambia.ONLY PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU (WHOM HH AND HIS UPND DO NOT RECOGNIZE AS ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT) HAS POWERS TO FREE HH.IF NOT,HH MAY ROT IN JAIL!VJ Mwaanga(a known upnd cadre) has realised this fact hence crying for upnd to urgently have dialogue with president Edgat Lungu!!

  16. A lot of lawyers in HH’s defence team are useless.only Justice Vincent Malambo is a true expert there.the rest can only be compared to that late lawyer whom giant Michael Sata once said to be a very dull lawyer whom he cannot hire even if he killed a rat!!!
    Who in his normal state of mind can believe that magistrate Simuusamba can reverse a decision made by his bosses at DPP’s office?am not a lawyer,but i simply cant see that happening.so HH’s lawyers could have objected to let the case be taken to a court (High Court) which is competent to handle a Treason case than waste time in a court (magistrate court) which will never handle a treason case.THEY SAY “JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED!!”SO LET THE LET THE HIGH COURT HEARS HH’S MONGU SAGA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THAN WASTING A MONTH…

    • Katondo boys welcome to the game.I want to tell you that soon tables will turn as the case is going the state prosecutors will be completely embarrassed.The case will open a Pandora box .I can see the petition issue rising out of this case.The net looser is PF and Lungu.

    • SO, IT IS TRUE HH WAS TROUBLE-PRON. SURE, ZIKO YANKALAKO ZEE MANJE. I THINK LET HH STAY PA CHIMBOKAILA FOR A WHILE, BASEVENZEKO NCHITO BANTU. HH, ENZE ANYANYA. ONE WOULD THINK ZAMBIA WAS ON FIRE AND A NO-GO-ZONE. OR THAT ZAMBIA WAS ON A STAND STILL. KEEP HIM WHERE HE IS BANTU BASEVENZEKO KUMATU TONDOLO.

  17. #15, you compare this person who plundered Zambia’s wealth from privitazation to Mandela, Kenyatta and Dr. Martin L. King? I get it! It is a joke!!

    • Sharon 23.Lungu has sold ZCCM , FINDECO and soon ZAMTEL and INDENI.He even chewed the widows’ pension and his license was grabbed . HH did not sale any Zambian asset it was Chiluba,Sata,Valentine Chitalu and Nawakwi.so leave HH alone.

  18. You PF chaps. Lies, deciet and evil have short legs. Lungu knows he is in trouble as soon as he leave that office. The bad part is none of the people around are his friends and the will dump him when his time to face justice comes. My advice to lungu is do what is right in God’s eyes. Let the petition be heard and free the innocent man.

    • threats, threats, and more threats…how do you expect the other provinces to give you more votes if you clearly saying when we come into office, we will be vindicative??? You donkeys never learn…

  19. Stupid lawyers let the case commence. You stand better chance at the high court.It is sometimes difficult to scare or threaten Judges than magistrates.

  20. Magistrates and judges do not report to the DPP. The DPP is not there boss. They even say ask lawyer like Sikota Wina. Damn! When did Sikota Wina become a lawyer? Maybe I have been away too long. Dull PF zealots can make you weep. Our country has been flashed down the toilet.

  21. Magistrates and judges do not report to the DPP. The DPP is not their boss. They even say ask lawyer like Sikota Wina. Damn! When did Sikota Wina become a lawyer? Maybe I have been away too long. Dull PF zealots can make you weep. Our country has been flashed down the toilet.

    • iwe it is there boss. Magistrates and judges they report to the DPP.

      research before you post stup!d comments you ka small HH.

  22. It’s stupid how people waste time posting here for things that have no substance in life. The arrest of HH is bogus and ECL has given all of you some nonsense to waste your precious time debating and posting. F***lish Zambians with nothing but to do in life wasting time and sunk in stupid HH cases that is nothing but persecution. Find a life than wasting time here!

  23. @ Mendacity why are you posting and reading here if you have better things to do?? The truth is that it is paining you that even on this forum PF is in The majority and your ka god HH is rotting in jail and life goes on in Zambia bb

    • Mambwe which majority when we voted HH won with 1.8million people and ECL lost with 1.7 million people.Provinces are just numbers.Presidentail election are won by the number of individual voters who cast a vote for you.So HH is the most popular leader that’s why you are pesercuting him.Bakabolala your time is near that’s the mistake you have made.AKUNA TINA AKUNA KULALA

  24. WHO IS HH WAVING AT? BECAUSE ALL CADRES ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE VICINITY. THEY ARE KEPT 300 meters AWAY AND ROADS ARE CLOSED. THEY CANNOT EVEN SEE HIM. THE MAN DOES NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING OUTSIDE JAIL.

  25. The manner in which the State is handling this case shows that our Judiciary is now totally compromised by Lungu and his Criminals. The DPP is under severe pressure to convict HH for Treason without any valid grounds. The Treason Charge on HH is meant to eliminate him politically,kill the Petition and then for Lungu to establish his One Man Party Dictatorship Rule. Lungu is abusing the Police and the Courts to achieve his political objectives. Its not going to be easy and the UPND Lawyers are doing a fantastic job and making the Prosecuting Team look like kindergarten lawyers. Lungu is forcing the Prosecuting Team do what is legally untenable. Lungu will fail to achieve his treacherous political objectives.

  26. Some comments can make you laugh. How can the DPP be a boss to a Judge at the Magistrate court? Please guys research before you post misleading information on public forum.

  27. boma ni boma tate!!!!!!!!!!!

    arest even the wife and GBM with the wife to.

    make them explain how they thot they were presidents like lungu . and make them ask for forgiveness alase!

    why are some media age-nest the ruling party? time wasters, HH will never be a republican precedent of zambia.

  28. You are wondering why preliminaries?

    Ah a, do lawyers have any other way of making money or it is through this same business? Who said lawyers are there to help you?

    The only time layers will help you is when you can’t afford one and the state gives you a lawyers or lawyers to help you out.

    Am sure that is not the case here. And this is always how lawyers get business. There is nothing strange about what the lawyers for UPND are doing.

    So just allow them to work. You mean you don’t like it when you friend’s businesses are booming?

    This business opportunity they have is no different from many other businesses they have always done through out their lives.

  29. HH must be the one to inc-rise the mukobeco number of people to be hung d to 171. i hope they will not let go of a hut less leader like hem. foreword ku mukobeko.

  30. Kudos , Oval Head, Snr Citizen, Patriot abroad, Nubian Princess, Terrible, Ndanji Khakis, Njimbu, Mushota and too many others to mention. I plea is this that in law every factual matter and ingredient of law relating to the charge matters very much. The DPP is the only owner allowed by law to sign a committal to the HIGH Court.
    The court has procedures for example order 53 of the HIGH COURT ACT guides matters brought before it.
    A classic example NJimbu cannot be tried in the name mbinji and a death sentence be passed and NJIMBU is killed. Your lawyer will raise preliminaries to established if Njimbu is mbinji worth dying? Technicalities are permissible in law and they favour the defendant in criminal cases…
    The HH treason case is to establish the wrong committed in law and facts as…

  31. The HH treason case is to establish the wrong committed in law and facts as the court was not there in Mongu or anywhere.The court will not allow illegality simply to convict someone. The court will pass it sentence be it the magistrate court , HIGH COURT, COURT OF APPEAL OR SUPREME COURT.The DPP is not above the law and HIS action is subject to the court of law. Except on the Nolle prosequi
    Lawyers of state and defence are court officials that need respect by every citizen.For example if your wife decides to sue you (Njimbu) for divorce and engage a lawyer, you have no right to insult, threaten and kill your wife’s lawyer. You will be surprised that the lawyer who engage may talk to your wife’s lawyer in a polite manner whilst you fuming with rage during your divorce proceedings…

  32. Kudos , Oval Head, Snr Citizen, Patriot abroad, Nubian Princess, Terrible, Ndanji Khakis, Njimbu, Mushota.
    My advice be tried by the courts and you will appreciate the service of a lawyer. Take my piece of advice as life has its twist and turns. Today it HH ,tomorrow it will be you before the court on others charges besides treason. Issues of land ,obtaining money under false presence , theft by servant, murder, assault , divorce , defilement etc are rampant. One day you will a victim. Ask Tayali of his acquitted rape case.

  33. Ah a, do lawyers have any other way of making money or it is through this same business? Who said lawyers are there to help you?

    The only time layers will help you is when you can’t afford one and the state gives you a lawyers or lawyers to help you out.

    Am sure that is not the case here. And this is always how lawyers get business. There is nothing strange about what the lawyers for UPND are doing.

    So just allow them to work. You mean you don’t like it when you friend’s businesses are booming?

    This business opportunity they have is no different from many other businesses they have always done through out their lives.

  35. Advice, you may not be conversant with the law. Sometimes, you need to be open minded. Lawyers have a knowledge of the law and when you have a brush of the law , they can be of great help. Lawyers like all professions has professional ethics to keep. The clients’ interest are paramount . A doctor loves to see his patient free from illness so is with lawyers.
    Have you ever heard of pro bono services by lawyers…or ex curia.
    Lawyers have case briefs which they share with other opposite party’s lawyers before court trial as a matter of courtesy(ethics).They may even agree that the certain matters are sensitive and need to be heard in camera. Take an example of a case of child defilement, the evidence of minor may be heard in camera….
    In this HH treason case , my advice to the…

    • Now, the UPND lawyers don’t open their minds properly.

      Last time their minds remained open until the petition expired.

      There must be a balance in every action. You can’t be so open minded that you even lose your focus.

      There are things in life while open mind has to be regulated.

      When you are married you are married baba. Don’t say I want to be open minded.

      You can’t keep looking at other women in the name of open mindedness.

      So, if the focus is academic you are free to choose open mindedness in preference to having your petition expired.

  36. In this HH treason case , my advice to the state let the DPP herself take full charge of the case otherwise the defence teams may have a great field day in court. The defence have a state counsel as their lead counsel. The state has Jonas Zimba as lead counsel. I don’t doubt counsel Zimba of his ability but this is a high profile case that requires the DPP involvement…Judge Mchenga(When he was DPP), Mutembo and Attorney General are examples when handling high profile cases. This HH case shall end up in a nolle….

  37. Advice , be real . The case of HH is treason , a criminal case…
    Marriage is a civil case. The petition you are obsessed is a civil case and never should it cloud your mind when addressing the treason case.The principle of law in criminal law are absolutely different from civil law. The analogy of Marriage fall far the below the standard of proof in criminal law.
    Marriage Act Chapter 50 of the Law of Zambia is not the Penal Code where the ambit of treason falls.
    Open mind in law is where the lawyer admits that law is right in interpretation against his client without applying rigour in order to please the client.
    My friend be in court and you will appreciate the service of the lawyer. Justice is painful when you are the victim. No wonder the law favour the weak in society. The…

  38. The powerful under the State can arrest you and detain you but your safety is in the court of the Law… You can be accused of insulting the President, be detained and taken to court but the onus to prove you guilty lies in the prosecution. The whole process to prove you guilt may be painful when you are detained but when the state fail to prove you , you have the right to sue the state not the President….
    Your remedy is damages from the state. The Ministry of Justice have an account called Compensation and awards where successful litigant against the state are paid.. This is tax payer’s money….
    My advice , I could have said much ….. but……

  39. The challenge facing the prosecution office(NPA) in criminal litigation are cases of misfeasance, nonfeasance, malfeasance of public officers. If illegality was committed against the victim ,the state stand to lose in the matter. Mundia Sikatana in the Shamwana case won the case of treason on grounds of torture and inhuman treatment…..
    Anyway , the HH case it is a wait and see case whether conviction will be made. The successful conviction case of treason was of Captain Solo and the DPP was Mukelabai.

  40. Ba PF bonse mulifinangwa. Do a bit of night school, maybe, just maybe you can think like humans.

  41. There is no person called Captain Solo.. it was Steven LUNGU.. i think you know where he hails from.
