We’re off to a winning start!! Patson Daka’s 48th minute goal was enough to see off the West Africans and give the nation a positive outlook for the rest of the tournament. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the stadium, but that’ll change soon, looking to give you guys a full experience. Nonetheless, I got to watch the entire 90 minutes, and without being too biased, it’s fair to say Zambia dominated throughout. Manager Beston Chambeshi got all the tactics right, and with over 50,000 people cheering them on at the stadium, the boys did not disappoint. Guinea did provide the occasional scare, especially with such a tight scoreline, but we managed to see the game through. The linesmen also disallowed two very disputable goals, but we’ll allow it & just take the win. Notable performances (for me) came from goalkeeper Mangani Banda, Boyd Musonda and Edward Chilufya. Overall, it was a good show from the Junior Chipolopolo and we wish them & the manager the very best in the next game. LET’S GOO!!

The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) laid their cartel loyalty before all to see when they appointed Lusaka lawyer Musa Mwenye to represent lawyer Nchima Nchito in his personification case. Nchito is in court on a charge of personating a Post Newspapers in liquidation lawyer and has denied the charge. A warrant of arrest had been invoked by the Lusaka Magistrate Court with Nchito successfully appealing for its quashing on account of it being unnecessary. Lawyer Mwenye took the stand in defence of Nchito on instruction from LAZ. Nchito is the lawyer for Fred M’membe’s Post Newspapers in liquidation but liquidator Lewis Mosho has been insisting that the lawyer’s services were terminated once the liquidator took over. Magistrate Greenwell Malumani adjourned the matter to April 3, 2017 for hearing. LAZ president Linda Kasonde was in attendance alongside former Director of Public Prosecution Mutembo Nchito. Nchito has been caught up in crossfire given the Post Newspapers in liquidation’s long standing battles with tax authorities that the defunct publication allege is politically motivated. The defence team led by lawyer Rabson Malipenga opposed LAZ’s appointing of a lawyer to defend Nchito saying it was outside their mandate but Magistrate Malumani passed it saying the law was not categorical.

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema climbed down his high corporate horse to project a man of the people image as he interacted with the locals at Chelstone Market in Lusaka. Hichilema spiced his visit by getting down to eating a meal of nshima at the market as he interacted with the people of Munali Constituency. The UPND leader has often been accused of being too corporate with a disconnect with the ordinary people on the ground. A by-election is looming in Munali Constituency after the High Court nullified incumbent Member of Parliament Nkandu Luo’s seat on November 22, 2016. Professor Luo has appealed to the nullification in the Constitutional Court but the 90 day cap set by the amended constitution is nearing opening up Munali to political activity.
