State enters nolle in another Nevers case

Filed under: More News |
MMD president Nevers Mumba has said Kitwe is looking like a dumpsite because the Patriotic Front (PF) government has failed to work and was now concentrating on arresting the opposition leaders on trumped up charges.
Dr Mumba was speaking in Kitwe this morning when the State entered a nolle prosequi (no prosecution) in a case where MMD president Nevers Mumba and seven others were  charged with unlawful assembly when they were found driving from  Lufwanyama district to visit Chief Shimukunami after  earlier visiting  Chief Nkana.
The outspoken MMD President said, instead of working to address the problem of garbage in the city centre and the shortage of mealie meal which has led to the increased price of the essential commodity, the PF is busy intimidating the opposition through arrests on trumped up charges.
“State is right to enter a nolle prosequi  because the accused had no case, but the Patriotic Front (PF) government was only trying to fight political battles against their perceived  rivals at the expense of service delivery.
“Look at the way Kitwe is looking, it is like a Malabo ( a dump site) because PF is not doing its work of service delivery. It is wasting a lot of time arresting the opposition on trumped up charges.
“We don’t want politics of hatred and intimidation, but we want politics of service delivery. Kitwe yalwike kwati ni malabo (dumpsite) because the PF is concentrating on arresting the opposition,” He said.
Dr Mumba advised the PF government to stop politics of  intimidation, harassment and hooliganism and concentrate on issues of  national development.
He said the PF should concentrate on  addressing the problems of heaps of garbage in the city of Kitwe, the shortage and sky rocketing prices of mealie-meal in various parts of the country.
And in entering the nolle prosequi, Copperbelt Provincial Prosecution Officer Anderson Simbulyani told Kitwe  Magistrate Penjani Lamba that he was in receipt of fresh instructions  from the Director of Public Prosecution to enter a nolle prosequi and  free all the accused persons
After receiving the instructions from the State to enter the Nolle Prosequi,  Magistrate Lamba said she had received the instructions from the State to discontinue the case and so the accused were free.
“I have received the instructions from the State to enter a nolle prosequi and so the case is discharged. You are free to go home, ” said  Magistrate Lamba.
This is a matter where Dr Mumba and seven others were arrested on  December 11, 2012 for unlawful assembly as they were driving from  Lufwanyama District to visit Chieftainess Shimukunami after earlier  visiting Chief Nkana.
Dr Mumba was arrested together with Lufwanyama Member of Parliament(MP)  Annie Chungu, Muchinga MP Howard Kunda, Masaiti MP Michael Katambo,  Kafulafuta MP James Chishiba.

Others were MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu, Copperbelt MMD provincial women chairperson Edith Mataka.
Earlier after the State a nolle prosequi, the defense lawyer made an  application for the costs because the accused had incurred a lot of  expenses in legal fees and traveling from Lusaka to Kitwe for court  sessions.
But, the magistrate dismissed the application, saying  the case had not gone very far and so it she would not grant the  application to the accused persons.

  1. quote…”This man could not even attend my mother’s funeral.”

    My advice to you is to abandon this thought altogether as it is not within your jurisdiction. The relationship btwen your papa and mama ended, (not withstanding the fact that papa disregarded the sired child in this relationship-for reasons best known to himself, if any, other than utter stupidity).

    I wish you the best that life can offer. Remember that A SHIP is always safe at the shore, BUT it was not built for that. Take risks and achiev more. All the best!

    PS: Never ever sire children outside wedlock! Lest you are burnt! Stay blessed.

  6. Its high time the government starts to think about what the opposition are saying if they are clever let them get amano from unclever people rather than arresting them every time they suggest something.

  7. The appointment of Muhabi Lungu as Director of Communications in the Office of the MMD President is recommendable.The Sunday Interview showed that these ZNBC Staff,seem to have taken a position to just be a mouth piece of the PF.That’s why they cover prominently non-factor individuals(even without verifying issues with genuine MMD Officials) like immoral Namugala,Traitor Kachingwe,Unprincipled Americano Sunday Chanda etc.Mainly the pipo who supported Mutati.

  11. Zambia Shall Be Saved.What’s happening to Dr Mumba is like the Bible story,where Pharoah hardened his heart,so that Moses could not lead the Israelites out of Egypt.Definately the Zambians shall be released from the cruel and dictatorial administration of Sata(n).God loves Zambia.God’s Glory shall be known in this nation.Zambia has been prophesied to be a Light House,and shall be so.Zambia is moving towards the Year of Jubilee(50Yrs) next independence anniversary.Jubilee is a year of freedom.Indeed Zambia shall be freed from demonic rulership.Godly Leadership is not a terror to the pipo.

  15. Zambia needs serious prayers. Christians it is time to pray for Zambia without ceasing, everything happening in any nation is a reflection of the state of the Church in that nation.

  18. Zambia Shall Be Saved.The battle is the Lord’s.What’s happening to Dr Mumba,is like the Bible story, where God hardened Pharoah’s heart so that Moses could not lead the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt.God will definately deliver Zambians out of the ruthless,tyranny,dictorship hands of Sata(n).God’s Name shall be Glorified.God loves Zambia.Sata(n_ is just diging his own grave of misery.

  20. Never mind, a nolle does not discharge a case. So Mumba should re-open the case/s once a change of govt occurs. These are enough grounds for the removal of immunity of a president once out of office, whether alive or dead.

    • HH and Nevers do not misbehave and expect to be let free.Remember that we are in charge and know that any time you misbehave we will visit you.This time you will not survive the hook.

      • @ Chililalila,
        Can you please define misbehaving? If truth is told to you, it does not amount misbehaving. If you are reminded of the 90 days promises, it does not amount misbehaving. What then is misbehaving in your vocabulary?

    • which world do you belong to? Who do you take the general population for? Remember just arresting this man costs money in the form of transport and man hours for the police and court staff. Unfortunately most of your kind do not know how to calculate lost opportunity or time as a result of engaging in non profit or beneficial activities.

  27. Yes, it worked but a drain on meager public resources on cases no sensible magistrate can convict a person.
    We need some serious soul searching wether this is the type of president we wanted, obsessed with jailing and distablizing the opposition!
