DPP takes over Amos Chanda case and immediately discontinues it

 

Here is one perfect example of abuse of power.

With impunity, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lillian Shawa Siyunyi has entered a nolle prosequi in the case where Edgar Lungu’s spokesperson Amos Chanda and Daily Nation Newspaper owner Richard Sakala were facing contempt of court charges.

Chanda, Sakala were scheduled to appear before Magistrate Felix Kaoma at 12:00 hours today in a matter where UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema applied to cite them for contempt.

Chanda is accused of making prejudicial remarks on Aljazeera TV.

It was HH’s lawyers who took Chanda and Sakala to court but in yet another clear example of abuse of power, the PF regime took over the matter just to stop it.

Remember we told you when the DPP applied to take over a similar case involving religious minister Sumaili that the aim is to enter a nolle?

And when people take the law in their own hands you complain!
