Kambwili’s Continued Absence in Racism Case Irks Prosecutors

Chishimba Kambwili’s continued absence in a case where he is accused of uttering racial remarks has displeased the prosecution team.

A public prosecutor has said if Kambwili fails to appear in court in the next sitting, he may apply for a bench warrant against the National Democratic Congress leader.

This is in a matter Kambwili is facing a count of expressing or showing hatred, ridicule or contempt for persons because of race.

It is alleged that on February 19, 2019, Kambwili, who is on bail, expressed racial remarks on Rajesh Kumar Verma.

When the matter came up for trial before magistrate Humphrey Chitalu, Kambwili, whose lawyers are Christopher Mundia, Gilbert Phiri, Keith Mweemba and Zevyanji Sinkala, was not present in court.

Brian Syanyengo, a prosecutor, told the court that officers prosecuting the matter were not in court as they were on leave and that Kambwili’s lawyers were also out of town attending an annual general meeting.

He, however, said in an event that Kambwili fails to appear in court tomorrow, (Tuesday), the State would have to apply for a bench warrant.

Syanyengo said Kambwili absconded court when he was supposed to appear for mention and “even today he has not appeared”.

    Bench warrant is permission to arrest a person who is refusing to appear before a court of law , just like what CK is doing. WINA AZALILA.

    This CK needs to be aware that politics are not the real threats to his well being but obesity and high emotions which affect his heart function. Take it easy man you have done enough but it’s just not your time yet.

    The fact is that you know that Kambwili is on duty and state is pf including the prosecutors no wander they always enter anoller prosecu. The fact is there is no Peace in Zambia.Therefore No equality and justice then no Peace.

    How does CK plans to be an executive if he rubishes the judiciary. He didn’t even need to be there in person he could have sent his surety. All these behaviors will cost him. I don’t think this man can look after Z ‘ s interest. He is just trying to save his own skin,
