Incarcerated UPND president Hakainde Hichilema will come face to face with State House press aide Amos Chanda in the contempt of court charges that the latter faces. On June 13 Lusaka Magistrate Felix Kaoma summoned Chanda, Daily Nation proprietor Richard Sakala, and Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili for contempt of court charges after a complaint from Hichilema and five others facing treason charges. 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 and his co-accused contend that the comment was libellous and exposed him to ridicule and hatred. Hichilema is facing treason charges and has been n custody since April 11 when he was bundled away by police after a raid on his house.

Another former minister in the MMD government has walked free in an abuse of authority case less than a week after Agriculture Minister Dora Siliya was acquitted on corruption charges. Maxwell Mwale who crossed over to the Patriotic Front in the heat of the August 11 elections was in June 2015 convicted of abuse authority of office by facilitating the issuance of mining licences to a Chinese firm. He was sentenced to two years with hard labour but appealed with the High Court ruling that there was no way he could have influenced the process of awarding the licence to Zhongui International Mining Industry Group Limited and its related companies. High Court Judge Mubanga Kondolo said that said the mining licences were awarded by a team of experts at the Ministry of Mines. Mwale was represented by Makebi Zulu advocates. On Friday the Lusaka Magistrate Court acquitted Siliya was charged with two counts of abuse of authority of office for allegedly cancelling a tender for installation of a radar system, and instead accepting a free offer from Italian firm Selex Systemi Integrati. When the case came up for ruling before Ndola High Court registrar Joshua Banda, sitting as magistrate, he found Siliya with no case to answer.
