Hichilema Remains In Jail; Case Adjourned To April 26

Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema will stay in custody for another seven days after magistrate Greenwell Malumani adjourned his case to study preliminary issued by the defence.

Malumani says 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 stranger that visited accused at 2AM.

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 2AM and also into the torturing of 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 has adjourned the case on preliminary issues to 9:00hrs on Wednesday 26th April, 2017.

      To enjoy the tantalizing sweetness of Honey you should succumb to the viciousness and stinging power of the Bees.The southerners would have said”Kalya u zumanana”,meaning only those that persevere eats the fruits.

    • Joseph Chawina

      UPND Lawyers wasted all the days allocated to hearing the Elctoral petition on flimsy preliminary issues.This is what is happening now.The difference is HH will continue to be incarcerated in remind while his lawyers waste time and accumulate legal fees which must be paid.It is to the Lawyers advantage that the longer the case takes the more financial smiles appear on Vincent Malambo’s face.

      For one to enjoy the tantalizing sweetness of honey, he should succumb to the viciousness and sting power of bees.In some regions they would have said”kalya uzumanana”. Meaning only those who perseveres eats the fruits.

    This one is destined to rule over Zambia and make people’s lives a lot better. He will end poverty, ravaging disease, unemployment, crime, inflation, stupidity brought about by silly Edgar and his cronies etc. The international community recognizes him and in his honor a ststue will be erected for his inspiring services he has rendered to the country. On the banknotes we shall carry his portrait along with that of Kk and Mwanawasa as these were the only leaders that impacted the nation positively. Edgar will be arrested and executed on the day the country will be commemorating its national independence. In fact we shall lobby stakeholders to support a constitutional amendment to allow Zambia recognize two independences: one from the colonial administration and the other one from the brutal and merciless dictatorship of devil Edgar.
    Long live HH and long live liberation struggle.

    • Muntu Wabulongo

      iwe ngati wasoba vokamba just keep your mouth shut or since you are using your zte phone you better switch it off. coz you are the same people you are bringing Zambia down so you mean that when Jesus Christ was on the cross with those two thieves he just the same as they were which is not the case they were thieves but he was a blameless soul. so if you are talking about other thieves murderers etc to be released then you must think twice because you might end up being one of those who were that Jesus Christ should be crucified but Barabbas be released thus think twice

  32. Commando

    I feel sorry for mr HH.A piece of advice to him is that if God has purposed that HH will be president of Zambia,it will come to pass.But he has alot to learn from our late president Micheal Sata(m.h.s.r.p) who lost the 2008 disputed bye elections to Mr Rupiah Banda.When some PF supporters started protesting that the elections had been rigged,Sata told the PF protesters to stop.Personally,i haven’t heard HH say the same to his UPND supporters.In the Bible,Saul was king over Israel but he disobeyed God,consequently,he was rejected from being king over Israel and God had chosen David king in place of Saul and enemty erupted between the two,time after time Saul wanted to kill David bcoz of jealous but David was very peaceful towards Saul such that even when an “opportunity”presented itself for David to slay Saul he refused by saying i can’t harm the anointed of God.It may not be the same case with HH but he should wait peacefully untill his turn according to God’s programme.

    • Jazz

      1. Sata was not arrested when PF cadres were protesting. 2. Sata lost to Rupiah Banda. Don’t talk about lessons that don’t exist.

    HH deserves punishment because he has put the lives of people on danger .

    • blake

      Which people were put in danger I was their n the man did nothing the thing is that people showed more love to HH than lungu

      • shaka zulu

        Blake, it does not matter whether UPND cadres in Mongu showed more love to HH than Lungu but the fact still remains that H.E. Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the head of state of this country, and indeed HH should be punished for putting innocent peoples lives in danger.

    the truth is that,even if we break some shops,burn down markets and when we are caught we wil be the only ones in problem so I advise every reasonable Zambian to be calm,hh will not take us out from jail.

    I enjoy comments from both parties but not insults and cursing. I feel if he hh didn’t commit any offence he could not been detained and face charges. For example a vehicles can over take each other I have never head of any driver suing another driver for over taking hence, we need to understand what transpired and the consequent it takes. I feel we let the court dicide and above all rioting isn’t a solution. Tukaculilamofye nabakakala bakashale. Prison no kunobe let’s not wish ourselves to there in the name rioting in showing solidality and don’t incite others to do so on media when u yourself won’t be involved it is not fair.u may fight in towns it will take half a year in some villages to resort to that

    You are just wasting your time to comment these rubbish just wait the court to handle the case, God’s time is the best

    Anyone who will be sworn in as a President of the republic of Zambia deserves the respect and as such whoever tries to dare him he will face the wrath of the law no matter what the race, tribe, clan and colour he belongs to ( whether he is handsome, ugly, tall or short) the law should be uniform to all . There is no segregation at all. Now to those opposing the law if for instance HH was president of the republic of Zambia was he going to allow such lawlessness to take place without law enforcers doing something about it? If the answer is yes then HH can not make a good president at all and he is not yet ready to be our president. Let him try to be a movie star or actor. We don’t want comedy at all when it comes to issues of governance we want seriousness and no lawlessness. Is he going to rule the country where lawlessness thrives ( God forbid) ?As a leader he should lead by example to follow the laws correctly not verse versa.
