Chanoda writes unreserved apology to Mutembo, Supreme Court judgesBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 24 May 2019
PF sympathiser Chanoda Ngwira has apologised to Supreme Court justices Mumba Malila and Albert Wood for threatening them with criminal action after the duo accepted to give witness statements in Mutembo Nchito’s matter.
Ngwira has further apologised to Nchito for the threats directed at the two judges, saying he had reflected on his conduct and will never interfere with the course and due administration of Justice.
On Friday last week, the Constitutional Court ordered Ngwira to apologize to justices Malila and Wood, as well as, Nchito for interfering in the matter in which the latter is challenging his removal as Director of Public Prosecutions.
Constitutional Court judge Palan Mulonda further ordered Ngwira to publish the apology on all media platforms used to publish the alleged contemptuous material within seven days from the date of the ruling.
Last year, Ngwira wrote letters to justices Malila and Wood, threatening them with criminal action if they did not step down after the duo accepted to give witness statements in Nchito’s matter, an action which led the latter to apply for leave in the Constitutional Court to commence contempt proceedings against the PF sympathiser.
In separate letters addressed to justices Malila and Wood dated May 21, 2019, Ngwira appealed to the two judges to accept his sincere apology for the threats directed at them.
“Please accept my sincere apology for the threats directed at you in my letter of 2018 that was addressed to you in relation to accepting to be a witness and giving witness statements in the matter of Mutembo Nchito v. the Attorney General. I have reflected on my conduct and I want most sincerely apologise for my threats. I take full responsibility for my actions and hope that you find it in your heart to forgive me,” Ngwira stated.
Meanwhile, in another letter addressed to Nchito’s law firm, Ngwira equally apologised for the threats against the two judges, saying he would never interfere with the course and due administration of Justice.
“Please accept my sincere apology for the threats directed at the Justices Albert Wood and Dr. Mumba Malila through my letters addressed to the two Justices dated May 21, 2019 in the matter of Mutembo Nchito v. the Attorney General. I have reflected on my conduct and I want most sincerely to apologise for my threats. I take full responsibility for my actions and hope that you find it in your heart to forgive me. I will never interfere with the course of Justice and due administration of Justice,” stated Ngwira.
