Court Adjourns Siwale’s Defamation Case

Trial in the case where New Labour Party leader Fresher Siwale who is charged with defamation of the President failed to take place on Monday.

In this matter, Siwale is alleged to have, on April 22, 2018, with intent to bring the name of President Edgar Lungu into ridicule, published defamatory matter by word of mouth to which he said the President of the Republic of Zambia was not the actual Edgar Chagwa Lungu but Jonathan Mutawale.

Siwale is also accused of having called for the arrest of President Lungu for having three National Registration Cards.

However, trial could not proceed because the Magistrate-in-charge Alice Walusiku was out of jurisdiction.

This came to light after State prosecutor, a Mr Ngozo, informed magistrate Felix Kaoma, who adjourned the matter on behalf of magistrate Walusiku, that he was unable to proceed with trial because his court was out of jurisdiction.

Ngozo then proposed that the matter be adjourned to April 10 and 11.

Magistrate Kaoma asked the Siwale whether he had any objection to that effect but he said he had none.

    Ba siwake ikaleni fye ngatapali ifyakucita. you are fighting a losing battle. mobilise your party because your claim will never materialize in any Zambian court. If you want popularity go round the country to sell your party. that’s what some one who wants to be President does. look at Harry Kalaba, he has started. but you are confined to Lusaka and the Prime Tv. awe mune kuwayawaya fye.

    To stupid so called Zambians it matters less being ruled by someone who is not what he is ka? Why don’t you approach issues with an open mind and let the claimant have his day in Court? What if he is right, will you then swallow your pride and congulatulate him with shame?
