UPND East Top Official in Hot Soup over Pres. Lungu Recognition Debate

UPND Deputy National Youth and Sport chairperson Michael Chuzu has landed himself in trouble for allegedly proclaiming that his party does not recognize President Edgar Lungu as the legitimate leader of Zambia.

Chuzu appeared in the Chipata Magistrate Court in a matter he is charged with seditious practices for allegedly stating that his party does not recognize Edgar Lungu as duly elected because he is unwell.

Chuzu was put on his defence after he was found with a case to answer.

The prosecution called four witnesses to prove its case.

Chuzu was arrested in 2016 when he appeared on Chipata TV and stated that his party does not recognize President Lungu.

He was jointly charged with Chipata TV news editor Iris Mwale who was

later released through a nolle prosequi before she was turned into a state witness.

The duo were charged with seditious practices contrary to section

57(1)(b) of the penal code chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

Particulars of the offence where that on September 26, 2016 in Chipata the duo jointly and whilst acting together with intent to raise discontent among people of Zambia, seditiously uttered and published a seditious publication concerning the government of the republic of Zambia containing the following words, The position of the party UPND include me, the national management met on Saturdayย  and our position is that we do not recognize Edgar as a duly elected, so for us at the moment, we do not have a president,โ€

The matter which is before magistrates Philip Mpundu comes up for mention on 7 August and 10 September for defence.

  38. Kauchingu

    Simple logic, he can be our president, and not recognized by some, only when you deliver well to pipo , then they will recognise you. If ECL will deliver meaningfully to pipo of Zambia, they will recognise him ,even chizuka will. Recognized or not recognized let him deliver. Let schools be funded, hospitals have drugs with enough man power and good machines. Then the issue of recognition will a dream. Even parent face critics let the critics strengthen plot one .

  39. boyka

    Mukakeni!!

  40. Jomwa

    My fellow Zambians,I personally iam surprised to hear that upnd does not recognise Lungu as the president but how do they recognise mama inonge as the vice now my question is that who is that the boss to mama inonge? If inonge is the vice President but how then there must be a president to whom inonge reports. All in all upnd MPs recognise inonge, then Lungu is there president as well.wait the time will come when you will be recognising your hh

  41. Mike seke

    Iwe ECL chifundo chepesako ndaba aba bathu bachilamo manje.Ubamange mapiko so that ba ZP babasebelese bamang’ombe aba ndaba bakuchita hinder chitukuko.Elo boma ikabamanga usabamvelele chifundo ati ukabachose.Bakamangiwa balilalila ubamvelela chifundo nakubachosa.Baka choka bakutukwana awe mwandi mapemphelo ponya kumbuyo manje EDGAR balangiwe bakang’one aba vakuti vawo.
