DPP Issues Consent to Prosecute Mwaliteta’s Offensive Weapon Case

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has issued a consent to prosecute UPND Lusaka Province chairperson Obvious Mwaliteta for allegedly being in possession of offensive weapons during the recent Kafue by-election.

When the matter came up today, the state informed Lusaka magistrate Alice Walusiku that they were in receipt of a consent from the DPP to prosecute Mwaliteta.

In this matter, Mwaliteta who is jointly charged with James Sichomba, was accused of being in possession of machetes, stones, knives and wooden pick handles in Kafue district.

When the duo first appeared before court, they could not take plea because the court had not yet received consent from the DPP to prosecute them.

Mwaliteta and his co-accused will appear in court soon for a possible plea and commencement of trial .

The suspects are each on a K5,000 bail in their own recognizance.

    I’m seeing hatred,fury,desperation and vengeance creeping into politics.This is sad because it’s leading us to civil strife and ultimately genocide.Let us pray hard to avert this demon slowly engulfing us.

    PF cadres arrested in Sesheke are free, but had offensive, lethal weapons also. Fair justice in Zambia ?6

    The law should be equal for all. Yes mwaliteta should be arrested and prosecuted if he was found with offensive weapons but so should have been those PF cadres found with weapons in sesheke instead of firing police officers who caught them.

    Teach these thugs a lesson,they are the same people raping and killing innocent souls

    Just as I personally don’t condone violent political activities, I think the arrests are not very fair. I am not supporting anyone but we have heard of some cadres with similar offences who have gone scot free. justice should not be selective. What Mwaliteta and his co-accused did is not right. I don’t know what he thinks. The law must take its course. The law should visit some PF cadres as well. Those threatening Kambwili are well known but have not been arrested for a simple reason being that they might spill the beans because there’s an involvement of a PF bigwig. Let’s be fair when dealing with violent crime.

    In Zambia the problem is that political appeasement has destroyed our real human nature such that as long as am a diehard of a certain political part I don’t mind any evil perpetuated by the cadres.I encourage each one of us to continue with the heart of encouraging all sorts of evils but one day the same cadres will injure,kill or do all sorts of evil against our own relatives and I pray that the police will not do anything and we should not forget to say pamaka.

    We are living in a country controlled by fake politicians, pastors,teachers, social scientists,physicians and literally fake everything including food and medicines not to talk about fake relationships. People just want to eat from everything. The cracks VB in the opposition is as a result of greedy for goodies which some sense they may not posses , shame.!!
