LAZ had summoned Mutembo to appear before its disciplinary committee following a complaint of professional misconduct.
Mulusa lodged a complaint alleging that Mutembo conducted himself unprofessionally when he appeared before a parliamentary committee and pledged on oath not to prosecute cases in which he had vested interest.
To the surprise of parliament, Mutembo has proceeded to prosecute the case of former president Rupiah Banda and further awarded suspicious nolle prosequis to businessman Rajan Mathani who he owes billions of kwacha.
These two cases were highlighted during the confirmation stage and Mutembo pledged to declare interest. However, he proceeded to actively participate in the decisions of the two cases.
Mulusa believes Mutembo was in parliamentary breach as he neglected to hold the house regulations. Mutembo is also caught up in a series of financial impropriate cases. He also forged a a signature on a judgement by judge Gregory Phiri.
Mutembo arrogantly refused to appear at the LAZ hearing saying the DDP can’t be subjected to a lower office.
Since Mutembo refused to appear, the committee asked Mulusa to make submissions indicating action that should be meted against the truant DPP. Mutembo and his partner Fred M’membe, the PF chief propagandist, were found guilty of defaulting the Development Bank of Zambia out of over K14 billion loan.
