    • The main thing is not the name. The main thing is the offence. Is Chitotela Tonga?. Poor reasoning!!!

    • 1.0 crime is crime no matter the amount. I’ve heard your kilt insinuating that the arrest of Chitotela is as a result of his differences with Edgar. Yet you were calling for Chitotelas blood.

  2. Many a legal Aid counsel do this. I would not dismiss this based on tribe.
    I remember a few years back when my younger brother sued one of the public Universities due to an unlawful suspension he was given. The legal counsel indirectly asked to be greased so that he could devout more time to the case, we refused, threatened to report him to ACC, he apologized saying he didn’t mean what he said. From them onwards the counsel had less and less time for the case. Luckily the then minister of education Dr. Kaingu intervened in my brother’s suspension.

  3. Sadly that is the reality of life, we arrest petty thieves that steal in shoprite but leave the big thieves, we even protect them.

    • You are not alone. Some years ago I hired a lawyer to prosecute a case for me against some court officials. Now because the case was straight forward and I was going to win, the concerned officers bribed this lawyer. He stopped coming to court whenever this was due. After almost a I realized that I had been tricked so I just decided to drop the case.
