Give Kambwili bail, demands HH

Filed under: Breaking News |
Opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has demanded that NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili be granted bail.

Hichilema noted that all the charges Kambwili is facing are bailable hence there was no reason why he was kept in detention where he fell ill and need medical attention.

Kambwili, who is PF Roan Member of Parliament, was picked from hospital on Tuesday, taken to Woodlands Police station then court and is now under police custody as the matter could not take off.

“We keep demanding that he be given police bond or bail as the matters he is charged with are all bailable. These are basic human rights enshrined in our constitution that even hardcore criminals are accorded.

“We appeal to the conscience of those who preach morals and values in our Christian nation to practice what they preach,” said the opposition leader in a short statement.

Kambwili was last week arrested and charged with 37 counts of receiving money believed to be proceeds of crime in the sum of K5, 246, 195 and two counts of taking pecuniary advantage.

But according to the indictment taken to court, Kambwili has been charged with 34 counts of possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime contrary to the Laws of Zambia.

He is alleged to have committed the offences on dates between May 5, 2014 and September 9, 2016.

But his supporters argue that the PF ‘rogue’ MP is only being persecuted for his political stance.

  1. There is an unwritten law, ” the law of reciprocation” which is what ever you do to someone is bound to happen to you. Ask K K , his child shot Tabeth Mwanza like a an impala, using the then Chief Justice the murderer was let off the hook. Years later the then Chief Justice left office unceremoniously after being exposed and later on K K felt how it feels to have a child shot dead. ECL you hypocrite some day you will feel it.
