The case in which incarcerated UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has sued State House press aide Amos Chanda and Daily Nation proprietor comes up today in the Lusaka Magistrate Court. It is not yet clear if the state will obey the order to avail the accused before the court of law as he was not presented at the last sitting despite the court ordering that he be made available. On June 27 Chanda appeared before Magistrate Felix Kaoma for contempt of court charges. The matter was adjourned to July 5 for taking of plea and possible commencement of trial. The contempt charges are based on complaints by Hichilema and five others over a story that appeared in the Daily Nation headlined ‘HH acted foolishly’ that the newspaper published on June 1 quoting President Lungu’s press aide who appeared on an Al Jazeera ‘The Stream’ Programme on May 30. Chanda is quoted as having said “…there was no witch-hunt in the arrest of Mr Hichilema as the predicament he faced was purely out of his recklessness and foolish behaviour of endangering the life of the President even after power sirens signalled the coming of the presidential motorcade.†Hichilema has also sued Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili for contempt of court in a matter before Magistrate Irene Wishimanga.

The Zambia national team will tackle Tanzania in the semi final of the 2017 Cosafa Castle Cup at the Moruleng Stadium. Coach Wedson Nyirenda’s side made it to the quarterfinals after having beaten Botswana 2-1 courtesy goals from Brian Mwila and Justin Shonga. Nyirenda will be hoping that his side build on the quarterfinal victory by beating Tanzania who edged out hosts South Africa via a 1-0 result. After a series of international friendly matches the set up is fairly familiar among the local players with Nyirenda likely to line up a central defence partnership of Isaac Shamukompa and Webster Mulenga while skipper Donashano Malama and Diamond Chikwekwe will be deployed as wingbacks. In the holding role will be Jack Chirwa with the attacking role falling to Shonga and Mwila. Zambia last won the Cosafa Castle Cup in 2013 on home soil and is gunning to lift the trophy again. South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe have each won four COSAFA Castle Cup titles since the tournament was first played in 1997, with Angola (three wins) and Namibia the only other teams to lift the trophy. Match kicks off at 17h00. The post Zambia Clash with Tanzania in Cosafa Semis appeared first on Zambia Reports.
