HH wants Lusaka High Court to enter default judgement against Nawakwi after she failed to defend her defamatory remarks

Headlines HH wants Lusaka High Court to enter default judgement against Nawakwi after...

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has asked the Lusaka High Court to enter Judgement in default against FDD leader Edith Nawakwi after she failed to file in her defence within the stipulated timeframe.

According to the interlocutory judgement in default of defence filed in the Lusaka High Court, Mr Hichilema through his lawyer Mulambo Haimbe of Malambo and Associates contends that the defendant failed to offer any defence to the writ of summons nor given any notice of intention to defend the summons and should have a judgement entered in default.

The interlocutory judgement in default demands that the plaintiff be awarded damages for libel, be awarded aggravated and exemplary damages to be assessed while the defendant be directed to retract the defamatory words against the plaintiff in relation to the acquisition of the property along Serval Road in Kabulonga.

The UPND leader is demanding for US$ three million in damages from Ms. Nawakwi.

  1. It will be crude, hateful, vengeance for hh to proceed with this case in the manner he wants it against a woman. This is the chap who wants to lead Zambia for he hates women. I challenge ECL to quicken the commission of inquiry on privatisation, esp where hh was involved!

    • Gender has nothing to do with the case. I ‘m sure the judge will give Nawakwi enough rope to hang herself. There will be no judgement in default.

  2. A very hateful man with no shame. You can only act this way if you are guilty. Madam nawakwi has now no reason to defend herself against such silliness when there will soon be an inquiry into this arrogant guy’s theft. Why should she waste her time and money. Face the inquiry mambala and stop picking on women. Meanwhile weekend is before us. Time to open that 20 year old whisky. What are you all doing for weekend mwebantu

  3. Why call it harassment now after cheering her on a few months ago ? She might be a woman but certainly no ordinary woman coz she is a former finance minister who was in charge of privatization at one time. Let her just unmask him as she claimed, min of lands is open 5 days a week to avail all necessary documents.

  4. HH guyz lets not forget history. Remember the nights with Nawakwi when you together in UK for studies. That’s bro, ibweshemo umutima…
    Nawakwi naena, why not call your friend Mutinta Hakahinde blend her hair and talk about the “defamation”. If Mutinta went home with a nice hair do and told HH that it was Nawakwi’s work, HH will drop all cases.
    Don’t do $ex, just be romantic!!!

  5. Whn u consider that she’s one of those people who hv held high political office in the past, u don’t expect her to be behaving this way. At her age, one expects her to be sober in her language. She gets in needless political fights against a man she’s not trying to wrest power from. It’s hard to understand wht her role is in politics. It’s not too late to say, sorry and consign this matter to the past.

  6. Some Zambians hate people for nothing. This lady was on an anthill accusing HH of theft, but she has chickened out when taken to court. This is pathetic. Why can’t you work hard to generate your own resources instead of displaying petty jealous.

  7. @ Millington Mambwe: please just advise your Angel Edith to produce evidence. HH can bit just be insulted anyhow and keep quiet on account that he wants to be president; that is not a passport to be showered with terrific insults. Nawakwi really behaved like a rabid dog against HH and we all got somehow convinced that she had concrete evidence and that HH was a devil in a sheep’s skin. He really got soiled big time. If she has no evidence, let her compensate him. She really behaved worse than a housewife from Kuku compound. Mr Hambulo should reign on her otherwise she will take him down along with her at this pace she is going.

  8. @paul which courts of law have ruled it as defamation? It is just a silly self entitled man with insecurities who feels belittled and not defamation. How can the truth be considered defamatory? let him face inquiry then once the findings have been made he can decide to pursue that case.

  11. So the defamation is just on the Sable house. The accusation of HH dubiously acquiring the intercontinental hotel was not included in the defamation case? What does mean

  12. Nawakwi is an adult who should face the consequences of her actions .I was particularly interested to read what her new found lawyer Tutwa was going to say in this case . Even the PF Thugs that were supporting her have deserted her .They have now using married Solola Tayambwa

  13. Let the Law take its course. If Nawakwi is guilty then she must pay for what she started. If HH is guilty then he must pay what he’s done. No gender involvement here, let’s be free and fair!!!! Meanwhile @ Kaizar Zulu, yep weekend is on, hanging out with some friends at a pub on Friday night, the Saturday attending a BBQ organised by some Zambians.

  14. Waona manje Edith, shooting without aiming has come to haunt you. Iwe naiwe kaizer Zulu wamvela ati ma whiskey Yako na humble one has pushed the country into default mode. We told you suckers but you were so stiff naked rolling in flashy cars bought by tax payers. Now we’ve officially become chambia, so go Xangdong n plead for mercy.

  15. Nawakwi has tempted a very shrewd man.

    HH as been GRZ antagonist for decades.
    Many a GRZ has failed to nail him or make him broke.

    This is a man who made lungu and pf bankrupt the economy fighting him in elections….

  16. These are just gymnastics of lawyers, don’t be excited. HH is up against a bigger force. That judgement will be set aside pending criminal proceedings spearheaded by the PF mercenary Chilufya Tayali. He’s already set the pace. Surely can’t you people see that?

  17. its like abena Luapula have been blinded over the privatization issue,ba Luapula please follow the history not speculations.was HH in government?, what role did HH play?,who signed on behalf of Zambia?,who approved the sale of all these companies?, Nawakwi was in government by then,why didn’t she file in legal proceedings over this matter?,why bringing it now when we are about to vote?, please ba Luapula don’t be used just bcoz you have been given that K50 & a bag of mealie meal, that will last just a few days.think of our country’s future and how it has been missmanaged otherwise we will never progress if we continue having mindsets like yours.answer all these questions yourself before you conclude over the privatization issue

  19. Ba Nawakwi, just apologise kuli ba HH. Me I appologise when I was wrong he forgave me otherwise I would have been swept clean by him. Just appologise ine nali pusuka.

  20. Madam Nawakwi, just appologize to HH. I did that when I was foolish and he forgave me. I was stressed with his case, because everytime I would travel to Livingstone on a bus and with very very little transport money, sometimes no money for food that, I had to plead with him to forgive me like a foolish fool. I’ll never defarm that man again, otherwise I leant a lesson. Just appologize Madam otherwise those sausages will be grabbed

  21. If hh is innocent then let him face inquiry with confidence. For me I have read some of the evidence and to be honest I don’t think the state would even need top lawyers to prove beyond reasonable doubt that hh did not follow the law during privatisation. Even chilufya tayali can take hh on by himself. Ask kambwili about him

  22. Just to say Kaiser, an adage goes “Silence is golden.”
    You sponsored Edith. She said she has evidence. Rule of the law is what we all what to prevail.
    Why’s she failing to appear before the courts of law?
    Is she hoping that since you set her up the courts will dismiss the case without a hearing?

  23. HH never initiated the programme of privatisation it was started by govt its self in this case the MMD govt.who recruited various organisations to help complete the exercise,and at 29yrs of age the organisation which HH was working for was called in to participate.In every undertaking the final approval of invoices or payments are done by an official of the organisation in this case it was someone in goverment so we may ask was it Nawakwi approving on behalf of govt or was it the secretary to the cabinet or treasury?.Besides at that time there was no provision of declaring intrest when handling such an exercise for all those who undertook there various interlect and professions in the privitisation exercise,they were free to work out what they were assigned to do including Ba Lungu when…

  24. If you Kaizar Zulu you are man enough, who knows that HH stole, take HH to court or to police. We’re tired of hearing hearsay in the papers. Do us a favour by taking HH to court because you’re a convinced that HH stole. Go, give a testimony so that HH is convicted or you will be jailed for being a false witness. If I had proof I would have done that. It doesn’t pay to be a false blower or not to report what is true to police or to court.

  25. Unprincipled PF cadres here, were ululating Nawakwi’s misadventures that were sponsored by their masters. Now with tails between their legs, they pathetically potray Nawakwi as a woman under ‘attack’. This is not the first time PF’s ‘dogs of war’ have been used to try and bring HH down. Nawakwi is an adult, let her face the consequences. Where are her backing singers?
