Tone down when appearing in court, Magistrate warns KambwiliBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 29 Aug 2019
Lusaka Magistrate Nsunge Chanda yesterday warned National Democratic Congress (NDC) party president Chishimba Kambwili to tone down when appearing before her court.
Magistrate Chanda said she had received an application against Kambwili, but could not disclose what it was about, and only advised him to tone down, saying his behaviour was important when appearing in court.
This is the matter in which Kambwili is charged with contempt of court.
When the matter came for mention and fixing of trial dates, Wednesday, Magistrate Chanda adjourned the matter to September 9, for continued trial and extended Kambwili’s summons.
She, however, added that she had received an application against Kambwili, but didn’t want to disclose what it was about because she had set it aside.
Magistrate Chanda warned the accused to tone down to avoid similar applications in the future.
“When you are on summons and appearing before court, accused person, you tone down! We don’t want any other application to be made. When somebody is on police bond or summons, the behavior is important. I don’t want to tell you the application I have received, because I have set them aside,” Magistrate Chanda said.
In this matter, Economic Equity Party (EPP) leader Chilufya Tayali 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.
Particulars of the offence are that Kambwili on March 6, 2018, in Lusaka, did cause an obstruction or disturbance in the course of judicial proceedings by lodging documents at PACRA to alter the details and records of Mwamona Engineering and Technical Services, which were subject of active judicial proceedings.
It is alleged that the changes made were particulars of the two directors namely; Mwamba Chishimba and Carol Chansa, of which Mwamba Chishimba was changed to Mwamba Kambwili and Carol Chansa to Carol Chansa Chipande.
