Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili will face trial after pleading not guilty to fraud charges on Monday following his arrest last week.

State prosecutors accuse Mr. Kambwili of forging a signature on an official document and presenting false documents and he appeared in the Lusaka Magistrate Court where he pleaded not guilty.

The offences are said to have occurred as far back as October 2013 and were initiated after a complaint by EPP President Chilufya Tayali.

“I understand the charges your honour and I plead not guilty,” lawmaker Mr. Kambwili, 50, told Senior Resident Magistrate David Simusamba.

Magistrate Simusamba has since set the trial date for March 6 2018.

Mr. Kambwili has emerged as President Edgar Lungu’s fervent critic who has accused the Head of State of grand corruption and theft.

In interviews shortly after leaving court, Mr Kambwili said “I am extremely excited that the matter has come to court. As you know there has been so much mud thrown at me.”

“This is chance for me to be cleared once and for all. I am extremely excited that the matter has come to court because i have received so much mud from Tayali claiming all sorts of things but bringing the matter to court is the best way for one to be cleared so we will wait until we adduce the evidence in court and we will see, wina azalila (one will cry),” he said.

When he was arrested last week, Mr Kambwili repeated his corruption allegations against President Lungu.

“Lungu is drunk with his corruption and he is getting confused day by day, and those saying Lungu is not corrupt are foolish. I want to tell you Lungu – I know you are listening – all those monies you are getting… you will not enjoy it. We know you, Lungu and your family, and we are watching you.”

  1. Prove yourself sir. I still will not easily forget how you spoke to a then post report while you were minister of information. How you insulted the Tonga people. How you defended ECL, and how you danced with them at all thise govt funded rallies. Tell us because it takes a thief to catch one. We want to know how you shared the spoils.

    • Am kind of confused here. Is it not tayali who took this buffoon to court for him to be insulting the president. Why is he not mentioning tayali? Little does this buffoon knows that his case has a trickled down effect once found guity. It means all his business thrived on corruption and thieving.

    • Mr. CK, please spill the bean even on the election so someone can be taken to court to explain how he became president with very questionable numbers and hiring a Ugandan into a server room.

    • I do not understand why Kambwili feels exited that he will be appearing in court over fraud charges relating to his signing and uttering an Annual Return for a company in which he is neither a Director or Secretary.Under the current Company Act 388 article 184 paragraph 2,the Annual Report can only be signed by a Director and Secretary of the company.According to Mr Kambwili,he is neither a Director nor a Company Secretary of Mwamona Investment Ltd and over and above this he has no shares in the company.What then is he excited about this.This case has nothing to do with politics but has everything to do with his cheating for which regrettably,he faces a clear conviction.

  2. Why is Kambwili not providing evidence?
    We are tired of allegations.
    All he needs is to use that big neck and mouth of his to call a press conference and let everybody know what he knows.
    That’s what u get from these fake PHD holders-little substance

  5. Sir, Mr Tayali strongly he has evidence against you. That is why he has brought you to court.
    I suggest you do the same for ECL if you have strong evidence to adduce in Court. We will be very excited!

  8. Because the Law isn’t politics. I wish you well. A tactful politician avoids such misdemeanors, I wonder why you’re excited. They have given you what you wanted?

  10. If Kambwili and Hichilema win cases against Tayali, it will be good time to teach Tayali a good lesson he will never forget. Let him get money and chew today but when dragged to court he will be left like Chanda Chimba because those who used him dumped him and never went with him to prison. Hope Tayali’s sponsors will help him to pay compensation otherwise that will be the end of this empty tin- Tayali.

  11. Those that God wants to take out of society he first makes them mad.
    Zambia is on the brink of clean politics but first we must go through the proverbial the darkest hour is just before dawn. Let them rant and rant insult and insult halucinate and halucinate.

  12. Just find him quilty for having a NO NECK – easy one for the magistrate. Find him with a case to answer, put the i.diot on defence, find him guilt and sentence him to 7 days simple imprisonment – DONE DEAL – convicts cant contest the presidency

  13. They want you to be broke while they are accumulating more riches. One interesting fact is that if Kambwili was still in government these cases would not have arisen. Politics at play!

    • He’s gone. His modus operandi are the old KMB type. I say old because today’s KMB personnel are able to articulate issues constructively. There no more pickpockets there and should some silly pickpocket from the archive venture there, he will be skinned alive.

  15. This is a classic difference between a honorary degree and the one that is earned. Kambwili speaks like a two-year-old by mixing a lot of issues. If he has cases against the head of state this is not the time to confuse it with a private citizen (Tayali) taking him to court and his alleged corruption by the head of state. Chishimba mwaiche, just prepare for the forgery case you are facing. When you are done with it then resurrect your corruption cases with the head of state. Take this as an opportunity to take someone to court and not just rantings. If you are man enough as you claim resign your MP position and recontest under your NDC party after all you are the president of that party. Why are you clinging to that position since you do not agree with the party that sponsored you? It…

  16. … It shows that you are a coward and you are not sure of yourself. We need an opposition leader in parliament and your party could be that. But going by your level you will probably be shooting yourself in the foot.

  17. The level of reasoning ck is displaying to the world is worrying. The so called Masters degree holder is exposing his dullness. The person who can not distinguish between Tayali who took him to court and the President. To him whatever is against him is initiated by ECL. Zambian politicians have taken us for granted becoz of the Zambian court keeping the straight forward cases for so wrong without disposing them off. Ck has already proved that he is no longer PF looking at the way he behaves and the court is still allowing him to draw public money as his fake salary.

  18. Kambwili is a coward imwee, cowards always makes noise like him, when the case first come to court he pretended to be sick, now that it has been moved to a later date he says he is excited. Hope he does not go to corrupt anyone for his case to be extended for ever. The advantage with him is that he has a lot of money to buy anyone on this case…watch him
