Incarcerated UPND president Hakainde Hichilema is fighting his treason detention on two fronts in the High Court and Constitutional Court. In the High Court Hichilema wants the court to quash his arrest labelling it unlawful and free him while in the Constitutional Court another action has been instituted seeking that he be granted constitutional bail while his matter drags on in the High Court. Treason is in league with aggravated robbery, rape, murder, motor vehicle theft among non bailable offences. Hichilema who has an army of lawyers has been detained from April 10 and charged with treason. He was moved to Mukobeko Maximum prison last week after Lusaka Magistrate David Simusamba committed him to the High Court. On Monday Attorney General Likando Kalaluka applied that proceedings on the treason case in the High Court be stayed until the matter in the Constitutional Court was exhausted as the action duplicated the proceedings in the High Court. However, Hichilema’s lawyers objected to the application for a stay arguing that the action in the Constitutional Court was invoked using a different legal provision. The High Court is set to make its ruling on Friday while Constitutional Court will rule on Thursday. Hichilema and five others are currently holed up at Mukobeko Maximum prison with the possibility of a death sentence should they convicted of the crime of plotting to usurp state power as alleged by their indictment.

The Zambia national team will be back in action this evening in a match against South Africa at the Moruleng Stadium in North West Province. Zambia go in this match on the back of Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Mozambique in the Cameroun 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier while the Bafana Bafana are riding high having beaten Nigeria 2-0 over the weekend. Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has carried a squad comprising local players with his eyes set on the Cosafa Castle Cup and the African Nations Championship (CHAN). The team excludes Zanaco and Zesco United players that have continental engagements ahead. Zambia commences its Cosafa campaign on July 1 with a fixture against Botswana with two back to back CHAN matches against Swaziland in July. Nyirenda will be hoping that the result against South Africa puts behind the disappointment of defeat on Saturday. The two nations have met on 17 occasions and have won five matches each, while seven matches ended in draws. Bafana last played Chipolopolo in January 2015, where a solitary goal by Thuso Phala was enough to hand the South Africans only their fifth win over the 2012 Afcon champions. Kickoff is at 19:00 hours. FULL LIST GOALKEEPERS: Allan Chibwe (Power Dynamos), Charles Mweemba (LumwanaRadiants). DEFENDERS: Isaac Shamujompa (Nchanga Rangers), Billy Mutale (Power Dynamos), Lawrence Chungu (Power Dynamos), Webby Mushili (Red Arrows), Alex Mwamba (NAPSA Stars), Donashano Malama (Nkana) Jubell Sakala (Nkwazi) Eric Chomba (Nkwazi). MIDFIELDERS: Stanley Nshimbi (Red Arrows), Godfrey Ngwenya (Power Dynamos), Nsofwa Mwansa (Lusaka Dynamos), Collins Sikombe (NAPSA), Fwayo Tembo (Power Dynamos), Mwila Phiri (Green Eagles), Paul Katema (Red Arrows) STRIKERS: Lubinda Mundia (Red Arrows), Ronald Kampamba (Nkana), Justin Shonga (Nkwazi), Mwila Brian (Green Buffaloes) (Source: Fazfootball) The post Chipolopolo Seek Redemption In South Africa Friendly appeared first on Zambia Reports.
