Opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has won the case where he is charged for use of insulting language against officers who went to arrest him on April 10, 2017.
Delivering the verdict Monday morning, Lusaka Magistrate, Greenwell Malumani said the state witnesses lacked credibility and professionalism.
Magistrate Malumani observed that the police arrested the accused person on all charges including treason without any investigation.
The Magistrate stated the state has failed to prove that the accused person committed the offense before court. He says there was no credibility in the case brought before him by the state.
This means Hichilema only remains with one case which is treason charge and Magistrate David Simusamba will this afternoon give guidance on how the case will move.
