The Zambia Law Development Commission Director Hope Chanda has appeared in court on two counts of corrupt acquisition of public property.

In the first count, it is alleged that Ms Chanda willfully failed to comply with procedures when she awarded a contract worth 60,000 Kwacha to Chipo Mushota Nkata for consultancy services.

In court two, it is further alleged that the suspect willfully failed to comply with procedures when she awarded a contractor for catering services to Vinnid Innovation.

When the matter came up in court today, Ms Chanda pleaded not guilty to both counts.

After taking plea the state applied for an adjournment which was granted by Lusaka Magistrate Greenwell Malumani.

The matter has since been adjourned to August 27th for commencement of trial.
