Deputy chief justice in crisis meeting with lawyer, judge at centre of bribery

Deputy chief justice in crisis meeting with lawyer, judge at centre of bribery

 Deputy Chief Justice Marvin Mwanamwambwa Friday

Mwanamwambwa

afternoon held a closed door meeting with notorious Lawyer  Eric Silwamba and Supreme Court judge Evans Hamaundu.

Justice Hamaundu’s is one of the Supreme Court Judges who reportedly received hefty bribes from Stanbic Bank to set aside a High Court judgement that ordered the bank to compensate Savenda Management Services for maliciously listing it as a bad debtor.  According to available records, the bribes were channelled through Eric Silwamba.

Deputy Chief Justice Mwanamwamba has not been mentioned in the bribery charges so there is curiosity within the judiciary as to why he could be having  meetings with ‘suspects’ at the height of the scandal.

The meeting was held in justice Mwanamwambwa’s chambers and lasted for about three hours. The Watchdog will soon publish what was agreed in the meeting.
