Chishimba Kambwili addressing Journalists at his house
FILE: Chishimba Kambwili addressing Journalists at his house

Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has asked Lusaka lawyer Lewis Mosho of Messers Lewis Nathan Advocates to stop joking by demanding for a K 5 Million as costs over a single application he made before the High Court.

This was in the matter in which Mr Kambwili and Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Gary Nkombo wanted to be joined to the impeachment case before the High Court which was dismissed on grounds that the two parliamentarians had not laid sufficient grounds to guarantee the court to join them to the case as joinders .

According to a letter addressed to Mr Kambwili’s lawyers Messers Malambo and Co., Messers PNP, Messers Keith Mweemba and Messers Christopher Mundia Mr Mosho is claiming for a payment of K 5 Million which is to be settled within 48 hours or he will without any further notice institute bankruptcy proceedings against Mr Kambwili and Mr Nkombo upon which through the bankruptcy order their parliamentary seats shall be declared vacant by the Speaker of the National Assembly.

But Mr Kambwili has described Mr Mosho’s demand of that sum as a greatest joke of the year.

“You go to court and make one application to be joinder to the case and it is dismissed, you ask for a K 5 Million, I could have been a lawyer and I think all lawyers could have been flying by now”, Mr Kambwili has said.

“Tell Mosho to behave like a lawyer and not a politician because lawyers are supposed to live above God and have integrity in everything they do but if Mosho wants to come on the political scene he will be bruised because we are ready for him,” He has said.

Mr Kambwili says he is aware that Mr Mosho is a President Edgar Lungu’s sarogate and a friend who does some transactions for the head of state but his time for reckoning will soon come.

On May, 24 this year the Lusaka High Court dismissed an application for a joinder by Mr Kambwili and Mr Nkombo in which the duo wanted to join the proceedings in the impeachment case as interested parties but the court dismissed their application and awarded K 5 Million costs to the petitioners lawyers.

Meanwhile the case in which Kambwili and others are charged with 34 counts of being in possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime has been adjourned to November 30.

The matter which is in relation to Mwamona Technical Services Limited a company suspected to be owned by Kambwili could not take off because the Magistrate – in – Principal Resident Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile is out of jurisdiction.

The suspect is jointly charged with his son Mwamba and some representatives of Mwamona Technical Services Limited.

    • Kambwili is Right, Mosho made himself look horrible and is probably a racist who doesn’t like Kambwili because he is Bemba ( like me). I dont like that Lawyer

      This morning I has Sausage and eggs with three toasts and Coffee

      This is life, In Zambia they dont even have breakfast properly, what a joke

      I love Europe

      Thanks,

    • Sad fact is most Lawyers think by charging such high fees they will get rich fast, the truth is they are just scaring away prospective clients and end up with having only one case a year which they end up losing. As I once mentioned the legal system in Zambia needs to be changed to allow more out of court settlement cases and to completely do away with legalis language so that even a layman to law should be able to defend him/herself in court without neede

    • Mosho, he will experience God’s roughs soon.
      Mosho and Stabic might currently the worst life destroyers in Zambia.
      Did he ever think of former Post Newspapers employees?

    • I just shared these fees with two lawyers here, they kind of upset that lawyers in our country behaves like that. There should be a standard fee under Attorney General office.
      One of them asked “.. do you have Attorney General system”. I said sure, but I have no clue who he is and what his job is. Pretty sure he is not same as we learnt in Civics.
      I said “.. no worries, Kambwili are not my family and Nkombo is not my friend”.

    • Tribalism is a cousin of Racism. All racists are tribalists and all tribalists are racists! Tribalists here are more likely to H-attack the Chinese and are more likely to H-attack the President or those who are not Tonga or their grouping on this site. Now I am sure you H-understand where I am coming from.

    • CAREFUL CK, LAWYERS DON’T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE YOU POLITICIANS USE. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KEEP COOL FOR ANYTHING YOU SAY OR DO WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU IN THE COURTS OF LAW. YOU SHOULD BE SPEAKING THROUGH YOUR LAWYER NOT USING THAT MOUTH OF YOURS. TAME IT!
      Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3:1-12

  2. Just pay and stop accusing the Head of State. You told the world that you are rich whereby you can fly to England for breakfast and have dinner in Zambia. You also mentioned that you are richer than the Head of State. In bemba they say, ICINWAPOFU CALETELELE PWELE. Your foul mouth will cost you. In Parliament you said that you belong to opposition but why do you cling to PF position? Just let go the Parliamentary seat and re-contest to prove your popularity in Roan Constituency.

    • African politics. Destroying opponents source of income and livelyhood. When they are up there, they think all will ever be okey. A few years ago CK was the darling of the PF. He leaves now and he his is an arc enemy. What is wrong with our skin kanshi. Is black a curse? Sometimes I think so. Sometimes I wish i was not African. It feels so shameful. I conquer with Nathan Nyirenda’s song. Maybe tatwakwata amano. Whites are far much much ahead.

    Wait a minute, this article claims the ZMW 5 million Kwacha was awarded by the court, is that right? Either way this almost amounts to extortion… how do you pay another lawyer for petitioning the court to join a case? Was this Mosho Kambwili’s lawyer or what?

    A really failed state… using underhand tactics to get rid of your political opponents.

    Fun thing though is when Lungu is sued, he is represented by the Attorney General using taxpayers money which is very unfair to those suing him who have to pay from their own personal resources.

  6. ”Lawyers are supposed to live above God or gold?”Tell me it’s a wrong statement from Lusaka Times.God cannot be equated to corrupt elements like lawyers.They swindle clients of their hard earned income.God is above mundane things and should be revered.

  9. lawyer Mosho has lost it………. he is threating kambwili and nkombo…… I totally disagree with his tactics…..
    let him be realistic………… if we have to assess the cost incurred in proceedings of the main matter, it can not amount to K5m……………….
    Mosho is disgracing the legal profession……. Look at how he handled the Post newspaper case……….. very chaotic………………. Sometimes live up to God’s principles………… Dont not be a hired gun for someone……………
    Even Tayali ‘s case can not amount to K5m

  11. I don’t think this Mosho guy is a good lawyer. I hear he has integrity issues. How can a normal lawyer demand K5m, just because they play with big money, firetenders, dribbling shoprite,closing the post, they think everybody has such kind of money which they play with, with their politician friends.

  13. The only time I will say Kambwili has balls is when he leave PF and stand on own feet. Otherwise I just see a lamp of flesh with a loud mouth. People who talk too much have not time to think. Now that his seat about to be nullified we will see what he is made of. Tonga will never forget what CK and we all know long he can survive in jail. If he can not last 5 minutes in jail, I wonder how long he last with his wife.

  14. The whole law system under lungu in Zambia is messed up…..basically any one in PF is above the law and any judgment against any pf can be ingnored and they can do as they pleas….all this decay while you have a president who is supposed to be a lawyer ??

    This is why I don’t like lungu. He has zero morals and zero integrity….

  15. Chishimba mwaiche kosa fye, insteady of going to London for tea and back for dinner in Zambia you should try having both in Zambia. Your honourary degree has not helped you much. You spent money on it and then you cannot even take care of yourself. Fainting will not help you this time.

  20. Ba Kambwili, aya malibu yakuilombela! Ifya kusonkomona fyafulisha. If you are not careful, this and other pending cases, could signal the end of your political career. Imwe lyonse fitala na mampiti! Teti mutekanyeko? You are just finishing yourself – putting the last nail in your political career!
