The Lusaka Magistrates’ Court has found Republic Progressive Party leader James Lukuku with a case to answer in a matter he is charged with expressing or showing ridicule or contempt for persons because of race.
But in the second count, which alleges that Lukuku, between 1st November 2018 and 5th November, 2018, he uttered words and published writings expressing and showing hatred, ridicule or contempt
for Chinese nationals wholly or mainly because of their race, place of
origin or color in a speech titled, “Kitwe riots against China are
welcome, let us multiply the riots in a million folds” sent to five
WhatsApp groups, the magistrate established a prima facie case against him.
