THE Lusaka Magistrates’ Court has acquitted former National Democratic Congress (NDC) party Chishimba Kambwili of forgery and possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime amounting to over K6 million.

Delivering judgment in the matter today, Lusaka High Court judge Mwaka Mikalile, sitting as a principal resident magistrate, acquitted Kambwili and others because the prosecution failed to prove the allegations against them.

Magistrate Mikalile said Kambwili during his defence provided the court with evidence of his legitimate sources of income.

She said Kambwili also provided evidence of the contracts he had with companies such as China Henan and had various businesses which he was running.

The court also acquitted Mwamba and Mwamona Engineering Technical Services.

And in acquitting two ZRA employees – Brano Musonda and Mulenga Kapilima, magistrate Mikalile said she found them not guilty as they had authority to prepare the tax clearance certificate for Mwamona Engineering and Technical Services.

Kambwili’s lawyers Keith Mweemba and Gilbert Phiri did not show up in court today.

Kambwili was accompanied by his wife Carol while Matero PF member of parliament was also at court to offer support.

PATRIOTIC Front member Chishimba Kambwili and his wife Carol arrive at the Lusaka Magistrate's Court for judgment in a case the former National Democratic Congress president is facing 39 counts of possession of property reasonably suspected to be proceeds of crime.

  1. Magistrates can be easily bribed. They are his friends. This Chimbwili has bragged openly about his corrupt practices but his connections are proving to be too much to handle for enforcement. They eat from the same plate.

  2. The UPND was saying the cases on the IG were politically motivated. Even cases on this former NDC leader were to politically kill an opponent by the fallen regime.

    Please make sure all court cases are cancelled, acquitted, on these two before as you wish appointing them into your government.

  3. PF was only avenging Kambwili’s party destruction. He destroyed them so much, they simply wanted to make him busy with something. Sheer waste of our money. Its unfortunate the man couldn’t stand long. Understandable

  6. Pardoned of one appealed offence and acquitted for others that were hanging over his head under the PF, but at what a cost! He sold his soul for a morsel of bread. He would have been Vice President, maybe!

    Is this is the same case he was pardoned for my c0rrupt d!ctat0r Lungu on his last day?
    Strange reasoning that just because you have legitimate sources of income, then you could be corrupt and a thief. Zambia!

  8. Judges are not being controlled anymore, this is an example coz if it was the last regime they could have influenced the courts. The judiciary is back to normal. So let them work according to the law…..

  9. This one needs to be fed to crocodiles in Lungwa, Kafue or Zambezi rivers. We are tired of this non entity & empty space in Zambian Politics. PF dont make a mistake of making this carbon dioxide exhaled air your next leader. Gosh !!
