Magistrate Malumani’s professional misconduct

HH waves at supporters after court trial

Dear editor,
Magistrate Greenwell Malumani mislead the nation when he found the incarcerated UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema, with the case to answer.
  The trial judge erred both in fact and law as the public perceived him to have proved the accused guilty of the offence beyond reasonable doubt. This explains why he had the accused put on his defense. However, the accused elected to remain silent.
  But when he acquitted HH many proponents of justice have questioned his professional misconduct over the case.
  However, notwithstanding the credibility of the witnesses’ evidence tendered against the accused, the Magistrate would have handled the case professionally.

  As the eye and ear of the administration of justice, I feel the case was unprofessionally handled by Magistrate Malumani.

  1. Justin Mupundu does not understand the Role of a Judge in Court.Its up to the Plaintiff and Respondents to present facts and evidence to the Judge and the Judge after weighing the evidence can then pass Judgment. The burden of proof lay with those who claimed to have been insulted. After violently raiding HH’s home these State Witnesses should have been charged with Aggravated Robbery. They ransacked the home,stole HH’s assets,teargased the occupants ,traumatised HH’s Family etc. After this Barbaric Raid the Robbers/ witnesses expected HH to say to them “thank u very much”.What nosense is that? If HH was not a peaceful citizen all these Raiders should have been shot dead after all they had no search or seizure Warrants and were trespassing in HH’s compound. To make matters worse the Witnesses dismally failed to prove that HH uttered those words. Magistrate Mulumani handled the case fairly and professionally.

  5. When a judge says, “you have a case to answer” he does not mean he has found you guilty; you are simply being asked to respond to allegations. In this case HH responded with silence because it was not up to him to prove his innocence; the complainants needed to provide reasonable proof, which fortunately they did not.

    Judge Malumani gave equal opportunities to all parties involved to argue their cases; instead some witnesses chose to lie and apologize in court. How then did you expect a credible judge to handle the case? Who erred in fact and law? The police confessed that they did not investigate, but watched TV as source of evidence. They could not answer simple questions of how the route lining was arranged despite claiming they were in western province at the time of the alleged overt act.
