A senior traditional leader in Southern Province has made glaring allegations claiming a state operative attempted to supply a poisonous substance through him to eliminate opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema. Chief Mukuni of the Toka Leya people alleges State agents have been trailing him after they realised he is one of the prominent figures attending court sessions for incarcerated Hichilema who is charged with treason. Hichilema has been remanded in custody for close to a month now. Chief Mukuni claims the operatives have extended their sniffing to his counterpart chief Hamusonde who is a relation of Hichilema. “Last week, they sent a young lady who is Tonga speaking to seemingly make it look tribal. The lady said she was a businesswoman who had been sent by some people in Malawi to deliver something to me so that I can give Hichilema’s wife who was in turn to give Hichilema in prison a night before he attends court. “I realised that whatever was to be given was poison. This was to make it look as if I and his wife did kill him [Hichilema],” he claims in an interview with The Mast. Chief Mukuni said he realised he was dealing with a state agent when he escorted her to the car and later called her because only the child answered. Both Hichilema and his wife Mutinta have made similar allegations accusing the PF government of ulterior motives. But the government has consistently dismissed the allegations saying what was happening to Hichilema was as a result of failure to respect the law. Observers have also condemned Hichilema’s prosecution as politically motivated.

The State has ceded some ground in the Hakainde Hichilema court wars by entering a nolle prosequi in the obstruction of the Presidential motorcade case. When the matter came up before Magistrate Greenwell Malumani state advocate Gamaliel Zimba informed the court the Director of Public Prosecution had issued instructions that the case be withdrawn. A nolle prosequi can be issued by the state at any time discharging an accused person usually due to insufficient evidence or any circumstances the office of the DPP may deem fit. The case can however be re-instated in the light of fresh evidence. However, Hichilema is still in court on the treason charge that comes up on Thursday before Magistrate David Simusamba. The court will rule on the efficacy of the treason charge and also guide on the certificate of committal of Hichilema’s treason case that is being challenged by his legal team.
