HH remains in jail as court adjourns to April 26

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Treason charged Zambia’s leading opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema of UPND will remain in prison as court has adjourned his matter to April 26, 2017.

Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called is facing a treason charge which carries a death sentence in Zambia if convicted.

When the case came up Thursday, Magistrate Greenwell Malumani adjourned it to next week saying he needed to study preliminary issues raised by the defence.

Magistrate Malumani said some of the issues raised were a bit complex and need time to be studied.

Defence lawyer Vincent Magistrate Malambo admitted that his court has jurisdiction to have an inquest into a stranger who visited Hichilema around midnight.

Malamba is also demanding that the alleged torturing of co-accused that included spraying of HH and colleagues private parts.

Malambo says the magistrate court has jurisdiction to open an inquury into a stranger who visited Hichilema at midnight and also into the torturing of the co-accused.

In response, Magistrate Mulumani said that the matter was too complex and that he needed time to look into the matter so a ruling can be made.

Magistrate Mulumani then adjourned the case on preliminary issues to 9:00hrs on Wednesday 26th April, 2017.

The matter is yet to go to the High Court as it cannot be tried in the Magistrate court.

  1. Kwena iwe Edgar Lungu nautumpa sana, how can you be threatening the people of Southern Province like that, are you a god or do you realize at some point that you were just created by God iwe mambala ? You do and talk rubbish things, do you ever gauge what you want say to the public ? Let me remind you of one thing, people don’ t survive because of you, never ever you cheat yourself like that. It’ s becoming extremely clear that you are over intoxicated with power such that it has now gone to the top of your head. Do not think the same army you are talking about including the police cannot rise against you if the situation gets out of hand than expected. You have infringed people’ s rights iwe ka idiot dictator and you talk rubbish thinking you can frighten who, atase we mbwa we ? Ifyabupyani, bushe ba Sata nga tabafwile, ico cifulo nga walicimwene we kalishilu we ? Nomba ulefwaya ulecushe mweyo yabantu nobutungulushi bwabula ukulondoloka, when in our history had Zambians experienced such misrule other than in this short space of your rubbish administration of thugs, ba kabbova ? You talk of law and the constitution which you yourself has failed to respect, which you and your own foolish thugs are busy abusing day in and day out and you want to apply it to other people ? Iwe uli kapuba fye and you are not even fit to be a president, let alone a drunkard, your career. You have destroyed this country to the extent where tribalism is now above par because of the bad language you have promoted. You are busy abusing innocent people leaving your criminals walking the streets scott free, what kind of a president are you ? Ukalapila iwe, do not think you shall remain there and the same abuse you are imposing on innocent souls shall follow you one day. Stop going into churches in order to hide there but instead go public into praising the Devil your father whom your serve and worship. Furthermore, you have made this nation to qualify into a ”Satanic Nation” instead of a ”Christina Nation” because of you and your thug cohorts.Let God Almighty who created the Universe, the visible and the Invisible strike you dead whichever day you are going to hold the Holy Bible in your evil and filthy hands in order to hoodwink the general public that you are God fearing.

  2. The root cause of Zambia’s problems is the Stolen August 2016 Election and the Petition Hearing thereafter.Lungu and his fellow Criminals will Never allow the Petition Hearing in any Court becoz they know they will be found guilty of having stolen the Elections. To stop the Petition Hearing Process at ICJ Lungu has decided to kill the Petition by imprisoning and killing the Petitioners themselves. Lungu is prepared to set the Hut alight by smoking the snake out of the Hut. If the snake does not come out he will burn the Hut and hopefully kill the snake in the process. The State of Emergency will not solve Lungu’s Legitimacy problems and will worsen the Economic situation.With the State of Emergency Lungu and Mutati should expect Economic and Travel Sanctions to be imposed on the Illegitimate Lungu Regime.Whichever way Lungu’s problems will compound as long as the Petition is not heard and disposed off. The AU and SADC need to step in and solve the Political Impasse in Zambia b4 the situation degenerate into a Civil War like we saw in Rwanda.Jacob Zuma of South Africa should take a Lead Role in this process.

  3. HH must find new lawyers. This bunch of lawyers is just milking him. They have started pursuing other issues fir instead of the treason case. that’s how they behaved during the erection petition and led to the elapse of time before presenting the cases

    They are interested in money. The longer hh satys in Jail the more money they will get. Next time u will hear them talking of hHs conjugal rights that he must begiven time to make love to his wife Wile in detention. GBM can do that for him. He has taken over all HHs functions
