State has slapped a disorderly conduct at a police Station charge on Emmanuel Mwamba

IN addition to the other court cases he is facing, the State has slapped a disorderly conduct at a police Station charge on Patriotic Front (PF) chairperson for publicity and information Emmanuel Mwamba.


The former ambassador is jointly charged with Jacqueline Chopa, 49, a businesswoman Gideon Tolopa, 42, also a businessman and Gift Kachingwe, 32.

Allegations are that on February 27 this year, Mwamba and the other accused persons jointly and while acting together conducted themselves in a disorderly manner at Kabwata Police Station.

The accused pleaded not guilty before Lusaka magistrate Amy Chilangwa and trial starts on May 20 for trial.

Mwamba is already appearing in two other courts charged with Espionage and assault on a police officer.

At the High Court, Constitutional Court Judge Kenneth Mulife has been removed from a case in which a former research advocate sued him for defamation of character.

The plaintiff, Bright Kaluba, claimed in his lawsuit that the judge defamed him when he allegedly accused him of being unethical and unprofessional.

Mr Kaluba cited the Judge, who was sued before he was promoted to Constitutional Court bench, as first respondent while AG is the second.

But the AG applied that the court should strike out Judge Mulife from the proceedings because he was improperly joined to lawsuit, a plea High Court Judge Charles Zulu has since granted.

But the AG will remain as respondent.

“I find nothing to dissuade me from granting the application. It should be restated that the object of the State Proceedings Act is to protect servants of the state from being personally held liable for actions arising out of their official duties,” Judge Zulu ruled.
