Veteran Politician William Banda

Trial  has failed to take off in a case in which Veteran Politician William Banda and 10 other  United Party for National Development (UPND)  cadres are charged with the offence of obstruction of police officers.

 

This is because one of the suspects and the prosecutor handling the matter were not before the court.

 

The suspects include William Banda, Gilbert Liswaniso, UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema’s press Secretary Brian Mwiinga and others.

 

In this matter, it is alleged that the suspects obstructed police officers when they tried to stop them from arresting Mr. Hichilema on April 10, 2017.

 

Lusaka Magistrate Fides Hamaundu noted that trial has delayed starting and urged parties to be present during the next court sitting.

  2. The laziest ministry in Zambia is Justice.
    But, in general Zambians we are too slow. Courts are only quick way of proving the fact.
    In Zambia lunch is from 12 to 14hrz.
    America is 30 minutes, anytime you

  4. Since when did Tekere become a ‘Veteran Politician’?

    LT stop this wanton abuse of terms or go back to Journalism School.

    Veteran cadre, yes; or better still – oldest cadre. Veteran politician, NO …NO …NO!

    All Zambia’s veteran politicians were well listed in social studies and civics text books and tekere came nowhere near that revered class. So stop laundering the hoodlum!

  6. It is only in this failed state called Zambia where suspect are assumed guilty before they are heard in the court of law, and some citizens either love it that were or they are so ignorant of human right laws. It is the duty of human rights organizations to teach the citizens of their rights especially concerning court process.
