Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema will be back to the Lusaka Magistrate Court in what has become his second home after being incarcerated on the non bailable charge of treason. Legal gymnastics in the past one month have not restored his freedom with lawyers moving back and forth probing the veracity of the charge. Last week the legal team struck some minor victories with the state conceding some ground when they entered a nolle prosequi on the traffic offence slapped against the opposition leader among other charges he is facing. Hichiilema will be in court on the alleged use of insulting language with Magistrate Greenwell Malumani expected to make a ruling. The use of insulting language is just a sideshow with the treason charge under magistrate David Simusamba still under scrutiny and is also coming up today. A ruling is being awaited on the credibility of the treason charge with the defence alleging that the charge is unreasonable. The defense team has also challenged the certificate of committal to the High Court that was not signed by the Director of Public Prosecution but by her subordinate. Hichilema has been behind bars since being violently arrested on April 10 at his house. He is facing treason charges that face a maximum of a death sentence if convicted The post Hichilema Back in Court; Will He See Light Today? appeared first on Zambia Reports.
