PF Legal Counsel Makebi Zulu has dismissed assertions that the PF Government is trying to secure a conviction of incarcerated UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and five others.

Mr. Zulu, who is also Eastern Province Minister, said this in Lusaka during the PF Interactive Forum yesterday.

Mr. Zulu said that the ruling party has no interest of securing a conviction of the UPND Leader saying it’s the responsibility of the court to either convict him or set him free.

And Mr. Zulu has said that the move by President Edgar Lungu to ask the Catholic Bishops to visit Mr. Hichilema at prison in the spirit of political dialogue is not in any way proving that he is behind his arrest.

Mr. Zulu emphasized that President Lungu has no powers at the moment to release Mr. Hichilema unless he is convicted.

Mr. Zulu said that even people calling on him to have mercy on the incarcerated UPND Leader are doing so without understanding that the constitution does not give President Lungu any powers to release a suspect.

    The only reason you represent pf is because you are a pf cadre not due to your legal prowess. Oh how proud your ugly parents must be to have a waste of sperm like you.

      PF bandits of visionless Edgar are hypocrites! Don’t ever believe anything else they say or yap, only the opposites is true.
      HH is only charged & not convicted, until proven otherwise beyond any reasonable doubt.
      Has the persecution of HH & any dissent voices from PF minions improved the economy?
      Dictatorship in PF of Zimbabwe, dictatorship in PF of Rwanda & dictatorial autocracy in PF of Zambian leadership of visionless Edgar.
      Let the presidential petition be heard & Lungu must give power to the speaker according to the amended constitution which Lungu signed. Mind you, Lungu even forgot the date of day he signed this same constitution.
      Release HH now!

      Then there will be no dialogue if HH is not convicted, and then immediately pardoned by Edgar.
      Its clear now Makebi is saying that PF is seeking continuous court appearances, no trial at all, like others like Mwaliteta.

      If Lungu is not involved how come he lets his police and cadres break the law with impunity. HH has been tranfered to mukobeko against the court order. So who in his or her right mind can accept the verbal diarhoea that Lungu is not involved? For I know too well only the president and his stooges can defy a court order in African countries.

      PF even lying you have now lost it. Mugabe you are copying is by far smarter than you. He does not engage in cheap political suicidal gimmicks of arresting opposition members and send PF cadres to burn markets and chop mourners’ limbs like you.

      PF you are pathethic as the name susgests. For your info KK and Chiluba we forgave but you thugs will see what made a leopard have spots very soon.

      Remember what I say comes to pass.

      Free HH you…

      Zulu says the President has no say in HH’s case, but permission has to be granted by the President for HH to be visited by the Church elders! What a contradiction.

      This is utter stupidity I am not a person of law but I know that the case is being prosecuted by DPPs office …. and now tell me why DPP cannot enter a Nolle in this case. In case you still dont get it let me give you an example..DPP insisted to prosecute the contempt case against Amos and Richard Sakala. Immediately she was allowed she entered a Nolle and the case was discontinued. Where do u think that came from? Please Makebi dont take us for FOOLS we know the President can stop this case when he so wishes its a matter of instructing the DPP Period! Just say he doesnt want to involve himself in it and not even if he wanted he wouldnt bla bla. It tiring Tell some gullible chaps that πŸ™

      You believe PF if you are daft. Lungu and PF say one thing and do the opposite. Zambians are now slaves of Lungu.

      He is not stating every option available to Lungu. The state is the one taking HH to court and who’s the head of state? LUNGU as head of state can ask his prosecutors to withdraw the case! I’m sick and tired of these ****** hoodwinking the ignorance of some zambians. Shame on you and I pray to God to forgive your sins and mend yours ways!

    This statement i baseless the PF accepts and rejects at the same time. It’s only a toddler who can be hoodwinked by statements from PF sycophants.

    Makebi Zulu should not take Zambians for fools. Lungu is Head of State and Commander of the Military. Lungu is in charge of the Zambian State Machinery at President. HH was arrested and charged with Treason at the direction of Lungu. HH was arrested and remanded by the State. The State arrested and remanded HH in Prison in order to convict him for allegedly committing Treason. If the PF Govt does not want to convict him for Treason why is the State keeping HH and 5 others in Jail? To punish,kill or poison them for what? HH and 5 co-accused did not commit Treason so why arrest and imprison them for a crime they did not commit? Why is the State not bringing HH to the Treason Trial? The State has no evidence that HH and 5 others attempted to overthrow the Zambian govt by force. Obstructing…

    But HH has told us that there is no president in Zambia, but himself why not just walk out of prison on his own.
    What is he afraid of, the law has he changed his mind to start respecting judges and the police.

      Dont put across infantile arguments even if there was no president in Zambia the laws still apply even if abused. When arrested even in Somalia or Libya you just cannot walk out. You remind me of primary school arguments

    I don’t agree with NEZ insulting people but I agree with him that if this man is indeed a lawyer, he cannot make such a statement in the professional sense. No learned lawyer can say such a thing. He knows deep down in his heart that what is saying is not true. Ok, imagine this man was HHs defense lawyer, do you think he can say such a lie? Of course not. He is saying what is saying because he’s a PF cadre, not as a professional lawyer. People should be honest and have integrity.

    Look at Vincent Mwale, when the whole PF is lying about the burnt Market, he stands up in Parliament and speaks the truth. That’s integrity!!
