Court summons Kambwili after Tayali accuses him of tampering with evidenceBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 10 May 2018
The Lusaka Magistrates’ Court has summoned NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili to appear and answer for contempt allegations leveled against him by Chilufya Tayali.
Tayali has alleged that Kambwili tampered with evidence in a case in which the latter is facing three counts of forgery, uttering false documents and giving false information to a public officer.
Recently, the State, through Chief Advocate Margaret Chitundu had made an application in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court to institute contempt proceedings against Kambwili alleging that he had tampered with evidence before the court.
However, Kambwili’s lawyer Keith Mwemba had asked the court to throw out the state’s application saying the court had no jurisdiction to entertain such a matter.
And giving the ruling on the matter, Lusaka principal resident magistrate David Simusamba had asked the state to bring the said complaint before him and if he was satisfied, the matter would be allocated to a different magistrate to hear the alleged complaint.
Magistrate Simusamba referred the matter to the chief resident magistrate Kenneth Mulife who then allocated the matter to magistrate Nsunge Chanda.
“Whereas your attendance is necessary to answer to the complaint of Chilufya Tayali for the offence of; Contempt of court contrary to section 116 (c) of the Penal Code CAP 87 of the Laws of Zambia. And whereas it is alleged that you Chishimba Kambwili in Lusaka, did cause an obstruction or disturbance in the course of judicial proceedings by tempering with evidence which is subject to active court proceedings,” read the Summons addressed to Kambwili.
A date for his appearance is yet to be communicated.
