Hichilema’s First High Court Attempt Set For Monday

The Lusaka High Court will on Monday hear incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s petition asking it to quash his unlawful arrest.

High Court judge Betty Mungo’mba will hear Hichilema and the Attorney General pending determination of the petition on Monday.

And the Constitutional Court has set June 15 as date of hearing the petition in which Hichilema and his five co-accused asked it to strike out provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code which forbids those accused of committing capital offenses like treason and murder from getting bail.

Last Monday, Hichilema, who has been behind bars for two months now, filed two separate petitions in the High Court and ConCourt, asking them to severe provisions of the law which bar courts from granting bail to suspects charged with murder, treason, aggravated robbery and other capital offenses.

Hichilema is also seeking monetary compensation for unlawful arrest.

      The whole reason why HH has been transferred to Mukobeko Maximum Prison, is the jailers Lungu, Kampyongo Amos Chanda and Kaizer Zulu felt ashamed of themselves to see that HH has a lot of visitations and he doesn’t eat food from prison. So they want to break his backbone, they want to see him eat prepared food in prison. They know he committed no offense and is coming out. They want to show him that there are rulers. You know politics is like business you have to gumble to succeed but this one will backfire and has backfired against them.
      Already in PF itself there’s a big opposition., and the opposition they face with UPND, to tell the truth Lungu is not sleeping.
      Lungu is in office for 9 months remaining with 4years. Now the way they have started, there are going destroy the core of PF and I know kumawa, is the only province that will remain with PF. If you are thinking PF is there for another 4 years, you are cheating yourself. Even Lungu himself doesn’t believe PF will be there, is afraid of his own shadows.
      I neither support PF nor UPND, I see there actions and policies they have. Both parties are violent and arrogant.
      Let them just bring civility in politics so that everyone participates freely. That is what we begging from these major political players.

    • hummer where it hurts

      Yes the courts should finish this case,it is tarnishing our image and disuniting the people.

  4. Awa na moyo msadala

    So when he become president is he going to allow bail for such offences.he is such a fool,wasting court’s time.petitions of doom.that is the new constitution that he demanded

    Which compasation?

    • Mumba kennetj

      I now. Come to believe that HH has wrong thoughts. Before voting he was claiming that he has already won the the elections. Now his case is before the court and hearing is yet not started and he is claiming compensation for his arrest Pls HH those lawyers you have are just milking you. You can not petition your case on two courts. Let the high court rule if you are found guilty then appeal to the next stage . this time just wait no need of talking this and that .you did business and your friends also know about law. Why you and your wife are trying to instruct the police and the judiciary what to do .just wait for the law to take it’s course. Secondly tell your wife stop asking country men and women to rise up against the state over your detation. This could read to another treason case of your wife. Don’t be bitter if you are not elected. O be president at a particular period.

    HH is our brother,lungu is our brothers.don’t be too quick to say. we love them all.we may tell ourselves. But perhaps the truth is that we are keeping away because we are afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing.Remember the kindest words and actions are often the simplest(Ephesians 4:32).Be patient and understanding, good luck.

    THE CASE HAS NOW STARTED. IT WILL DRAG ON AND ON UNTIL THE MAN LEARNS A LESSON OF HIS LIFE. HE THOUGHT HE WAS SO POPULAR THAT THE WORLD WILL TURN UPSIDE DOWN WHEN HE GETS ARRESTED. WE ARE ALL HAPPY ENJOYING OUR PEACE. HE TRIED TO PLAY A FAST ONE ON THE ZAMBIANS BY BURNING A FEW SOFT SPOTS AND ORGANISING FIVE UPND CADRES IN LONDON POSING WITH FOUR PLACARDS FOR A SELFIE , ATI PROTESTERS. ALL THAT HAS DIED A NATURAL DEATH. HE TRIED TO BAD MOUTH ZAMBIA TO THE EU. BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM, MUTATI HAS JUST MANAGED TO GET A HUGE LOAN FROM EU…KIKIKI….WHILE HE HAS SECURED FOR HIMSELF A ROOM AT MUKOBEKO.

    You would be well advised to tackle this problem a gently,in some cultures, people express their feelings openly. Whether they are happy or sad,others know how they feel.A Bible proverb says:”As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it.”(proverbs 15:23,25:11) There is wisdom in knowing what to say and what not to say,what to do and what not to do.It may be hard for others to understand this.what about our reactions today? Do you find it difficult or embarrassing to show your feelings? Millions can have solid hope of seeing HH.Do’nt let others dictate how you should act or feel,do’nt try to be a pillar of strength for others,Do’nt try to be too strong get it out from your system.Realize, though, that no matter how much we love another person,we cannot control his or her life.The Bible warns that prolonged anger is dangerous.The Bible urges us”throw your burden upon JEHOVAH himself,and he himself will sustain you”(Psalm 55:22),
