Bishop Mambo pleads guilty to contempt, apologizes to Supreme Court

CiSCA chairperson Bishop John Mambo has pleaded guilty to contempt of court in the Supreme Court.

This is in a matter in which Bishop Mambo was charged with contempt of court for writing a letter to Chief Justice Mambilima over the Savenda vs Stanbic Bank judgement in which he alleged that judges involved in the case seemed to be interested in achieving personal ambitions.

When the case initially came up on July 17, Bishop Mambo had denied the charge but opted to change his plea today, admitting the charge.

Bishop Mambo also apologized to the court saying he did not mean to bring the name of the court into disrepute.
