Martha Mushipe

The Zambia Police have summoned controversial UPND legal counsel Martha Mushipe to appear before them at 10:30 hours at Force Headquarters today.

According to the UPND media team, Mushipe has been summoned for unknown  reasons.

Mushipe, who has been a dedicated UPND counsel for many years had been involved in a series of clashes with the Electoral Commission of Zambia and recently the Constitutional Court, was also reported to the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) for alleged misconduct.

She was a key member of the UPND legal team in the ill-fated 2016 presidential election petition.

In the past, Mushipe had her Law Firm searched by state police for undisclosed reasons, which the UPND later called an infringement on her rights as a citizen.

The UPND has also warned that many of their dedicated members will face the same issues.

“We also wish to put it on record that many party members and UPND sympathisers  are likely  to face similar summons under Edgar Lungu’s illegal leadership  should the party opt not to bring such matters to international attention.

“We call upon all the members to be highly supportive of all members who fall into similar percecutions,” UPND explained.

    • Very nice Ba PF you are doing it at the time your illegal president is at the UN.

      This will strengthen the evidence against the PF ‘s persecution of the media and the lawyers who support the opposition.

      Mushipe is going to tell us what she was summoned for very soon. If it is to intimidate her then Lungu and his regime balimuchibe.

      Meanwhile at the UN word is going round that Lungu is Mugabe ‘s protege and most
      sensible leaders are avoiding his company at all cost.

    • Do I sense a compromise here to persuade MUSHIPE to withdraw the petition and character assassinate HH?

      Or they want Mushipe to persuade UPND for a government of nation unity to make it easy for Lungu and his PF to borrow money on friendly terms.

      If UPND accepts this UNITY GOVERNMENT madness that will be the end of UPND.

      Nicky and Tswangirai of UK and Zimbabwe respectively paid a heavy political price for that mistake of going to bed with rivals just to have a taste of leadership in government.

      PLEASE HH DO NOT LEAD UPND INTO A STUPID UNITY GOVERNMENT WITH PF STOOGES AND THUGS lest you get painted by the same brush.

      Just persvere and offer strong opposition to keep these thugs in check before they borrow and blow the money on behalf of poor Zambians.

      • Mushipe cannot be persuaded to withdraw nothing,

        Mushipe has nothing to withdraw, no case not petition as the only petition died out due to total lack of evidence.

        What Mushipe is being pursued for is falsifying of evidence, a very serious case in law.

        Mushipe falsified the so-called ‘evidence’, and as the public was waiting for the said evidence UPND lawyers and officials were in a panic as some of the people they claimed were witnesses refused to take part, saying they did not know anything and did not want to be involved in falsehood.

        That is what caused the UPND to continue running away from there own petition. As time goes, you will here much more coming out of the same camp.

        You know, what the UPND wanted to do was an organized (disorganized) plot to commit serious crime against the state and the people of Zambia.

        Some people saw that, but most of the UPND supporters followed blindly not knowing what was going on.

        ‘Take the elections materials to court’, so that you do what to the materials (conniving with some elements in the judicial system)

        ‘hand over power to the speaker’, iwe, iwe, iwe! for what? so that you do what? You thing it was for nothing?

        Just wait for the revelations to come out.

          You are such a delusional PF stooge!

          If the evidence Lady Mushipe has was falsified why is the police interested in her?Why has Lungu instructed Mushipe to report at the police station? Witnesses reported to give evidence the first day of hearing but the concourt judges adjourned so that those witnesses could be threatened by PF thugs. No protection was accorded to the witnesses.

          Let me tell you why. Mushipe has all the evidence which the PFConcourt refused blatantly to hear to avoid an embarrassing situation where their credibility would be exposed by using time frame gymnastics and a series of unwarranted adjournments. However, their effort was fruitless as the PF also questioned the credibility of these judges now and want them removed.

          Now the US has told IMF not to support PF in any way until the petition is heard in full and the evidence Mushipe has on behalf of UPND presented to the court, Lungu is panicking in the US and has instructed hist stooges to summon Mushipe so that they can persuade her to destroy the evidence she has which might cause panic in PF if the decision to hear the petition goes ahead.

          Remember when Mushipe discovered one person who voted six times and that Chavula person who Lungu has hidden, the international monitors were present at ECZ. They witnessed part of the evidence which Lady Mushipe has.

          If what I have told you is not true, Lungu would not have panicked to get the police to intimidate Mushipe.

          Lungu and his PF Balichibe. The other day Amos lied that US congratulated Lungu, why should it take the under secretary to convey the congratulatory message and NOT the ambassador who is just a stone throw away from Lungu ‘s residence? Truth came out when Lungu ‘s views were aired on ZNBC that he was not happy with US stance of his political and media intimidating tacts.

          Kaya taza nvelako after Mushipe briefs HH and UPND why she was summoned.

    • MUSHIPE IS NOT A FAMOUS AS A LAWYER IN ZAMBIA, HER LAW FIRM HAS SUCCEEDED TO ATTRACT A LOT OF FLIES LATELY.
      SHE HAS CAUSED PAIN TO THE LEGAL FRATERNITY AT MANY A TIME AND PLACE.
      THIS BRINGS WITH IT SOME SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT THE CONDUCT OF WOMEN WHEN THEY ARE EXPOSED TO HIGH POSITIONS IN TERMS OF DECISION MAKING CAPACITY!!
      THE CASE OF THE CONCOURT IS ONE OPENED AND CLOSED CAN OF WORMS…. WOMEN JUDGES CRYING FOR JUSTICE WHEN THE WORLD WAS ANTICIPATING JUSTICE TO BE PRONOUNCED, DELIVERED BUT THERE WAS NO COLLECTIVE WILL TO DO THIS!!
      AS FOR THE FEAR OF MASS ARRESTS GRIPPING THE UPND, WE WOULD HOPE THAT THEY CAN RECALL ALL THAT THEY HAVE DONE, THEY MUST REMEMBER THAT THE SOVEREIGN ENTITY OF A COUNTRY MUST SOAR ABOVE ANY PARTISAN BELIEFS AND ASPIRATIONS, THE GUILTY WILL ALWAYS GUILTY BE AFRAID!!

    • So priscilla Isaacs is in hiding why, but why if she conducted these elections in free and fair manner?

      I said before that Esau, Priscilla and other ECZ officials will soon be sacrificed by Lungu and his PF just hold on to illegal power very soon. He will instruct his boys to kill these guys one by one to completely conceal the evidence because under pressure they are capable of talking and spilling the beans.

      For the first time in Zambia ECZ chairman is living under police guard, why?

  3. Police should tell the nation what is going on with Priscilla Isaac who colluded the the ugandan Emmanuel Chavula to have access to the ECZ results room during vote computation. This man is believed to have manipulated the figures in favour of PF. IG and your police we are waiting…

  9. No peace loving Zambian citizen can condone the tribalism and intimidation being infringed on the opposition party (UPND) by the ruling party (PF). How do you expect peace to prevail in the country when leaders in the ruling party are preaching hatred speeches supported by the bootlickers?

  10. I kindly call upon all peace loving Zambians to be highly supportive of condemning all leaders promoting abuse of human rights and such matters be brought to International attention. More especially at the moment when President Lungu is attending the UN Conference.

    However, i’m appealing to UPND to publish the facts,evidence and grounds presented to the Courts of Law when they petitioned the 11th August, 2016 General Elections. Let everyone know since UPND had no adequate time to be heard in Courts of Law.

  11. As long as we do not have credible and popular Government in place victimization of innocent people like Counsel Mushipe will be the order of the day.
