UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has asked the Lusaka Magistrate Court to bring his treason case to tomorrow as he has decided not to go for judicial review.

On Friday last week, Mr. Hichilema’s treason case was adjourned to June 12 for him and his co-accused to seek judicial review in the High Court over the certificate of committal signed by deputy chief state advocate.

But Mr. Hichilema’s lawyer Mulambo Haimbe has filed a notice to abridge time by bringing the case to May 30 or any suitable date.

Mr. Hichilema has asked the Lusaka Magistrate court to hear his case on Tuesday, May 30th 2017.

This is because he has opted not to seek judicial review as advised by the court to challenge the validity of the committal certificate signed by deputy chief state advocate Marriam bah Matandala.

Mr. Hichilema through his lawyer Mulambo Haimbe has filed a notice for principal resident magistrate David Simusamba to abridge time thereby hearing his case on Tuesday or any nearest date suitable for the court as opposed to June 12th where it was adjourned too.

The legal counsel says the defense team has been instructed by the accused not to exercise that option of challenging the certificate of committal.

He says if the court brings the case forward the state will not be prejudiced in anyway.

The UPND president was granted judicial review as accused persons have been committed to the high court for trial on instructions signed by the state advocates and not the director of public prosecutions.

It was the contention of the defense that he certificate was defective as Matandala who signed it had not submitted a letter in court to show that she was authorised by the DDP to issue instructions.

  1. Dull (HH) Kaponya has finally seen through the treachery of his greedy lawyers. Let’s go to Mukobeko and hang/behead this thug.

      Deport him afterwards back to Uganda where he is really from, I am told.

    • Kudos. Your savegeness, heartlessness, devilishness confirms the statement that Zambia is divided and it must be so. I guess you and mushota are from NE Rhidesia. We have now known what kind of people you are and we now know how to live with you. If you are in Zambia and intelligent you will see the différence. The devil who united us with the devils comitted a devilish mistate. We are hurt because of the persecussion of persecution by persecution. I am saying so because I am hurt not because of tribalism but because you and Mushota are savages, heartless, inhuman and un-Zambian. You started by calling others tribal tribal tribal and now you want to start killing them using state machinery. you will kill a few not all. The bottom line we know the devils to live with.

    • His lawyers have finally realized that playing with techinicalities is not the best way forward for their client!!! This is after how many days of having their client in jail without bail???? I said it before, and I will say it one more time.

      HH’s best way forward has always been going through the process, his lawyers know if guilty and he knows the Penal Code has a noose to his neck. He made a very f00lish mistake and we all make those once in a while.

      Go through the process and your conviction in place and plead for clemency … ECL is very forgiving, HH would at least have a chance to live and enjoy his wealth. Anything else will be disastrous for him. That’s his only way out … the evidence against him is overwhelming

      I have been saying this for a long time. Right now they are planning of yet another set of different preliminaries.

      They have seen the bank account and have taken note that it is fat.

      They wasted all the 14 days with their advantageous preliminaries, and still wanted more days to meet their desired income.

    • It’s Zambian Judiciary’s integrity under trial, NOT HH. The judiciary is being abused by lungu to fight his political nemesis as he goes for third term & wamu-yayaya.

      How do you charge a COOKIE, a GARDEN-BOY & a SECURITY GUARD for treason?

      No normal judge can entertain this case which has no evidence but relies on illusions. It’s BAD AT LAW as Judge Malumani put it.

      FREE HH
      FREE MWALITETA
      FREE BAROTSE ACTIVISTS
      FREE ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS

    • @ maloza. I concur with you. Even the way the treason charge sheet was changed says it all:-

      1st they said treason arose from the traffic incident.
      2nd they changed & said treason was committed during unknown events on an unknown date betwn September 2016 year & April 2017.
      3rd they did another chipante-pante & then changed the charge sheet again claiming that HH wanted to be received as a president in Mongu

      That is enough evidence to show that the charges are cooked up by Évil PF & dull lawyer lungu.

      The rotten judiciary with corrupt judges like Simusamba, Sunday Nkonde, Matthews Ngulube (a recipient of ZamTroop funds), ConCourt judges headed by a WEAK Chief Justice Irene Mambilima are such a disgrace.

    • The uncivilised statements on this blog are appalling to say the least. Do we have people in Zambia who can train others in blog etiquette. Others use vulgar language, others do not even understand the topic at hand, others have turned every thing political even where unnecessary, others are debating on political lines removing all objectivity from their thinking. We need editors who can filter out trash from blogs.

    • Maloza, be very careful HH may end up being jailed and that will be your end and no one will do anything about it. Start mobilizing your fellow UPND followers to go apologize at the courts and plead that HH be released. We don’t even know who is in charge of state machinery because even Lungu was told off for interference.

    • B R Mumba, Sr. What evidence is there against HH’s treason case? You people surprise me. You probably haven’t been following this case. You see, even if you hate HH you should try to be objective at times. I understand you may have some hatred for HH because of your tribe but believe me, there’s no case to talk about. Go and read the penal code, unless you choose to be ignorant. By the way, I am a northerner but I know just how most but not all Bembas hate Tongas. Hatred of each other’s tribes will not take our country anywhere. I find it difficult to imagine that a person can hate another because of the name of his tribe. It’s really difficult for me. I can promise you that no normal person can find HH guilty in this case unless some judge under state house influence.

      Don’t mind Kudos. There’s a lot of us from the Northern region who see HH as a Zambian who doesn’t deserve to be treated the way he’s being treated. We will pray for him so that the devils mistreating him will one day pay for what they are doing. My interest is to see my country make progress economically, socially and politically. I don’t care about the tribe of the person who delivers that progress. If it’s HH or any other person from a different tribe so be it.

    • Ba ZESCO Mabumba … first of all I wanted to ask you if you have even watched the incriminating video for your hero HH. Secondly, I want to find out if you even know the relevant laws applicable to your hero’s case and why he is being charged with treason.

      Thirdly, how is it that you are able to tell by divine intervention that B R Mumba, Sr is a tribalist and hurtful? By all accounts, do you even know who B R Mumba, Sr is other than seeing his face and name online?

      Fourthly, how is it that all the legal experts fully understand the gravity of HH’s case but only minions like yourself offer simplistic monolithic views on such a complicated issue at law? Please ask the above and I will be ready to debate further.

Or is it a question of Under 5 just being stubborn and not taking cousel from his lawyers ..this is a non bailable case you can raise all preliminaries you want and the court will gladly grant you enough rope to rot in jail to your hearts content and your pocket’s misery . At least common sense has prevailed, shall we got on with the trial now please.

If the lawyers were serious enough, the moment Magistrate Simusamba decided to deliver “ADVISE” HH’s lawyers to seek a judicial review instead of making a “FIRM DECISION”, the lawyers should have raised a ‘red flag’. How does one go for a judicial review where there is no decision to challenge? How does one take advice for judicial review? Funny, ehhhhhh?????????

    One goes for judicial review to challenge the lower court decision or a decision of an administrative body concerning factual findings or legal findings. So, you take advise for judicial review????????? That same Friday, HH’s lawyers should have stood down the matter to consult with their client, and…

Now they have to plead for another hearing…lets hope there will be space

  32. @Mbaluso u dont know what u are talking about. U ignore Legal Advice at your own peril. Don’t forget that this Treason Charge was initially precipitated by the Mongu Motorcade Incident and when the State was cornered it entered the Nolle Prosqui on the Motorcade Charge. Although the Charge has been dropped for now the State can reinstate it any time. Defence is covering all these possibilities and on balance they have advised HH to now commit to the HC. The Defence has done its home work and has shredded the Treason Charge. We now know that HH was arrested and charged b4 the investigations were done and were never done. We now know the Arresting Officer who is also the Complainant and a Witness. We know the Arresting Officer presided over all the Charges and what he did was unprocedural…

    What will be the ramification when the state enter a nolle after a highly publicized arrest? The state shall be deemed to be any abused of human rights and The President may fire Top police officers to clean his image.

    The state lawyers have not much experience on treason cases nor the DPP.. on the defence team , Malambo and Mwiimbu has. The state lawyers may not have the time for pre- trial sessions with witness due to poor case brief management. this is different with defence lawyers……
    The issue of opting for trial are matter of prudence and avoid issue of jurisprudence for case law when there is no case. The HIGH COURT shall either dismissed a case when it lack merit because of a bad charge or defective element.

  37. We hope UPND is now listening to what they would have previously thought as dissenting views. They were thinking that whoever says something contrary to their views was out to get them. Just a few years ago, they were busy insulting Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu and saying that the Catholic church wants to bring genocide into Zambia. Peter Sinkamba was called Chamba man. Michael Sata was CNP. Guy Scott was Muzungu wopusa. Fast forward, the Catholic church is speaking for the voiceless and the Pentecostals are evil and, HEMCS (MHSRIP) was a saint compared to the devil currently in the seat, Peter Sinkamba’s ideas are saving the day. Guy Scott is now a darling. Please note the difference how the PF responded to the Pastoral letter from the Bishops a few weeks ago and how UPND would have…

    • Imagine these people. and all the while they think Zambians are so dull such that they don’t see all this. Remember the protests aginst the appointment of Mutembo Nchito as DPP in 2012 or so?? upnd youths were beaten by police over the same issue. Today, Mutembo would have even been AG had upnd won the election…

      Please note the difference how the PF responded to the Pastoral letter from the Bishops a few weeks ago and how UPND would have would have responded if they had perceived that it was targeted at them; it is quickly dying away without much insults as some people had expected. Either there are no advisors in UPND or someone is extremely stubborn and wants to fight his battles on many fronts. Sorry to say this but traditional leaders like Mukuni and the other one, whose name I have forgotten, who said that only a Tonga should take over from Mazoka are making UPND look very tribal. Wako ni Wako as the Chewas would say.

  38. This is what happens when tribe becomes the determinant in one’s decisions. The accused(hh) is tonga, all his co-accused are tonga, defence lawyers: malambo, muchende, mushipe, mweemba, mwiimbu, haimbe. His vuvuzela Zambian watchdog is managed by Lloyd himaambo and clayson hamasaka, both tonga. These emotional tonga lawyers will lose a seemingly weak and easy case.SAD

    • ITS TRUE EVERYTHING ABOUT HH IS TRIBAL. YOU CANNOT HAVE A NATIONAL PRESIDENT WITH SO MANY TRIBAL TRAITS. EVEN HIS WORKERS AT HOME ARE ALL TONGA, WHAT A CREATURE IS HH? LUAPULA,NORTHERN,MUCHINGA AND EASTERN ARE THE ONLY PROVINCES WHICH CAN GIVE HIM THE PRESIDENCY BUT WITH THIS KIND OF TRIBALISM ITS EACH REGION FOR ITSELF AND GOD FOR US ALL. MOREOVER THIS MAN WILL BE CONVICTED AND THEREFORE NOT ELIGIBLE TO STAND IN 2021. BUT THE SENTENCE WILL BE LIFE IMPRISONMENT AND NOT DEATH SENTENCE. ZAMBIA IS VERY PEACEFUL WITHOUT HIM AROUND.

  39. They’ll rip him off before they have him released- not to mention Charles Milupi is gunning for UPND Veep and is likely to be running mate in 2021- GBM’s treachery has been exposed and the tribal hounds will get him out of UPND.

  40. if HH is tribal , who are you? If the lawyers are tribal, how about your lawyers?
    from my analysis, be sober gentleman…. let the case proceed… don’t find tribal in every thing…. Are you very holy , more holy than UPND?
    Imweeee…….

  41. Some of you are happy to see accused in prison for a long time. Have a human heart and condemn govt for keeping people long without trial. In the meantime govt spend a lot of money keeping accused in prison instead of buying medicines, paying students etc

  42. @robmwale or is it robhamwale do you know why you have always been losing elections ? It is because imwe ba UPND you think you know it all even when Peter Sinkamba advised you here on this forum you refused to see sense and as usual called him all sort of names. Even on the Presidential Petition upto now you still insist you were not heard and even blame the Concourt judges when infact it was your lawyers with they preliminaries. ECL will rule this country until the next elections what you were supposed to do is strategize for 2021 . Show us Zambians in 6.5 provinces that you are democratic hold a convention, how do you call ECL a dictator when you yourselves last held a convention 10 years ago ?

  43. The level of blogging is appalling. There is a lot of misuse of a treason charge in Zambia judicial system. I don’t support any political party or anyone but looking at the charges and not even a single charge will fall under treason. I have had a privilege to read about a treason charge in Zambia in the past and in what circumstances one can be charged for treason in Zambia. There is two actions that will warrant a treason charge in Zambia (1) using force to overthrow the Govn’t and (2) Aiding the enemy of the state or someone to over throw the Govn’t. I will let you be the judge on HH case and blog sensibly . BTW i am a grade ten drop out but self made millionaire.

  48. Mambwe , am not UPND or PF like you….. Politicians have destroyed this country……. Look at Kaunda, Chiluba, Banda and Lungu….. Can you compare them with Jesus?

  50. The fact is that no treason grounds exist or have ever existed. There is no State lawyer eager to prosecute this case. No one wants to take responsibility for a sham – except of course the political persecutors like Lungu and the breed of imbe..les that surround him. And then some sadist non-thinking bloggers here are calling for a noose around HH’s neck. How about calling for the same for your relatives when they get charged frivolously?

  52. @Harold Muna typical UPND cadre you know everything the only thing that puzzles me is why have you failed to convince Zambians to vote for you . You have been losing since 2001 can’t you sit down and think?? . I think you have the wrong candidate but then again you know everything

  53. I AM SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE ARE YAPPING AT THE RATE AT WHICH HH’s CASE IS FAST TRACKING AT THE EXPENSE OF THE OTHER POOR CONVICTS!

    WELL IF YOU HAVE CASH, HIRE LAWYERS FOR THEM BECAUSE THE LAST TIME I CHECKED THE LAWYERS MANDATED BY GOVERNMENT (LEGAL AID) TO REPRESENT THEM ARE NOT DOING MUCH TO HELP THEM FAST TRACK THEIR CASES… AND THAT IS HH’s FAULT RIGHT???? ALA BANE TULEIKALA FYE!

    AS FOR THE TREASON CASE! I HAVE GRABBED MY POPCORN AND READY FOR THE DRAMA SERIES!

  54. But how does one change his mind so freely in a dictatorship? People need to understand that there is no direct translation for treason in our local dilects. Treason was created by the same people you cry foul to when you feel your democratic rights have been abused. It’s the same people who killed through hanging if you were in violation of your allegiance to sovereign or state. So when people start using terms like dictatorship in Zambia, spare a thought to people who are not so privileged to even have any form of representation.

  55. @Mambwe – Nowhere did I profess to know everything nor state that I am a UPND member. What does that say about your ‘analysis’ in making such assumptions? My point was that any one objective enough should be able to discern that this case smacks of nothing but ‘vengeance’. My comment was not about who has won or not won what. Not now anyway. It was about process and justice – and its misuse. It is about anyone else in a similar situation who suffers at the hands of a capricious regime that only knows intimidation and harm as a way of covering its inadequacies.

  56. @61, vengeance or not, underfive deserves a few months in correction for endangering the President’s life or refusing lawful instructions. Why do donkeys fail to understand a very simple thing like that?

  57. HH’s legal team need to stop giving bad advice. This matter would have been heard by now had it not been all the shilly shallying they do in courts. Poor HH, has had to endure all the weeks in jail for what? Maybe the courts would have found in his favour by now(not!).

    The best is for him accept husband guilt, to apologise and let President Lungu pardon him. It will be humbling, but he needed to be grounded. He went too far. Think he should be allowed migration to USA, where they’ll send him to Guantanamo Bay if he pulled his misbehaviour against the state.
