The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lillian Shawa Siyunyi has entered a nolle prosequi in the case where President Edgar Lungu’s spokesperson Amos Chanda and Daily Nation Newspaper owner Richard Sakala were facing contempt of court charges.

Chanda, Sakala are scheduled to appear before Magistrate Felix Kaoma at 12:00 hours today in a matter where UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema applied to cite them for contempt.

Chanda is accused of making prejudicial remarks on Aljazeera TV regarding a matter which was actively before court, which remarks were published in the Daily Nation Newspaper.

But the DPP has this morning signed a nolle prosequi, discontinuing the case.
“Now these presents are to authorise the entry in the record of proceedings that proceedings against Amos Chanda, Richard Sakala and Daily Nation Newspaper Limited are discontinued by my direction pursuant to the powers vested in me by section 81 (1) of the Criminal Procedure Code Chapter 88 of the laws of Zambia,” stated Siyunyi.

  1. Zambia forward. Only God can stop the hell that has been come against us as citizens of this country. This battle can only be warn by being on our knees and pray for God to us have mercy upon us.

    The devil has taken over our lives using political elements who have no kindness to us majority suffering Zambians. They only think of themselves while portraying that they are there in those officers for poor citizens. We must pray for deliverance as a nation.

  2. One needs to surrender to God to remain sane in this country!

    Really.

    It is not safe to be in the hands of “frightened little men and (women”!

    State of emergency to protect yourselves when you are already overprotected.

    Afraid of people you have already jailed!

    Try them and let the courts decide!

    How long has Mwaliteta been held without trial! You people are really heartless!
