Kambwili leaving court

Opposition NDC shadow leader Chishimba Kambwili has been saved by the Magistrate Court which has given him bail.

Within a few hours of being in cells, Kambwili was reported ill after his blood pressure shot up. He was rushed to CFB, a privately-owned hospital in Lusaka where he was hospitalised until Tuesday.

After being discharged Kambwili was taken to Woodlands Police station then Magistrate court where state prosecutors failed to show up forcing the Magistrate Court to adjourn the case to Wednesday. He was taken back to Woodlands and his conditioned became bad forcing the police to take him to UTH as they were reports that some private hospitals had been instructed not to take him in.

The Magistrate Court however granted Kambwili a K10,000 bail with two working sureties.

The court has also ordered Kambwili to surrender his passport.

Kambwili was arrested by the ACC and charged with 39 counts.
