Police Extend Warrant of Arrest to Nchima Nchito in Fred M’membe Case…Mutinta Still Under Detention

Police have extended their hunt to respected lawyer Nchima Nchito over their pursuit of former Post Newspapers Managing Director Fred M’membe.

M’membe is currently at large with police keeping watch at his Nangwenya road residence in Rhodes Park where they have been camped after searching his home yesterday and picked up his wife Mutinta.

Mutinta is still being held in custody at Kabwata Police Station after she was bundled away last evening.

The police are holding out to have her reveal the whereabouts of her husband who is on their wanted list following the warrant issued by the Magistrate Court.

The Lusaka Magistrate has also issued a warrant of arrest of Nchito who has been the lawyer representing M’membe and The Post Newspapers.

Nchito like M’membe is also accused of posing as an agent of The Post Newspapers that is facing liquidation.

The provisional liquidator Lewis Mosho is pulling all the strings hoping to force M’membe into cooperating with the liquidator in listing all the assets under The Post Newspapers.

M’membe has been accused of concealing some of The Post Newspapers assets and also not giving all the records to Mosho.
High Court judge Sunday Nkonde appointed Mosho as provisional liquidator of The Post after some former employees filed a motion of winding down the tabloid.

The paper was closed last year following a disputed K51 million tax debt owed to the Zambia Revenue Authority.
It has since been re-incarnated as The Mast under the ownership of M’membe’s wife Mutinta.

      A war is made up of battles. When japan bombed pearl habour during the course of the second world war they were confident they could win the war from that attack and many more battles in the pacific. The outcome was very different after Nagasaki and hiroshima. The side fighting for the greater public between Fred’s and ECL’s will win.

    This is Mafia terrorism. Why ask him to list the assets if he is not the owner? Mosho will one day face justice.

      Mosho who stole K48 billion from Shoprite is now the person pursuing clean pipo! And the judiciary is full of wolves. I agree; this is Mafia terrorism. Mosho, you will one day face justice as well as those you represent.

        Imagine that is how rotten our country has become.Edgar rescues the Thief Mosho and lets him loose on innocent pipo.Instead of Mosho going to jail he is in the forefront of sending even eminent persons like Nchito to jail.Edgar must go together with his criminals.

    It is amazing what is going on Zambia, we really don’t know where we heading to. It’s like everything you look at or hear is in reverse.
    Why is Mutinta Mazoka being detained and denied bail. Isn’t that what is called a violation of individual human rights. There is a total breakdown of law and order in Zambia the police are inept and corrupt, the judiciary is nothing to write home about. Very corrupt, one cannot run to the judiciary for remedy and protection. Lord have mercy on mother Zambia.

    Leave Mutinta alone she doesn’t know that M’mbe is homosexual man(biosexual) and he got fund to promote LGBT rights in Zambia which is normal because homosexuals are Zambians too.Now the PF regime is killing the freedom of the press in Zambia
