GBM’s unlawful drilling case fails to take off


UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba’s unlawful drilling case failed to take off today before the Lusaka Magistrate court as the trial magistrate Ireen Wishimanga was not present.
Meanwhile a Lusaka businessman who was arrested for writing “free HH” on the walls of government complex in Lusaka has appeared in Court.
In this particular matter which is among the many meaningless cases heaped on opposition leaders, Mr. Mwamba is jointly charged with nineteen other people for unlawful drilling.
In the second count the 19 who are jointly accused with Mr Mwamba are alleged to have assembled on 27th February 2016 in Lusaka without permission of the President to be trained or drilled in military movements or evolutions.
The 19 were arrested after police found them exercising at a fitness gym located on Mr Mwamba’s property along Luanshya road in Lusaka.
Meanwhile a Lusaka businessman who was arrested for writing “free HH” on the walls of government complex in Lusaka has appeared in Court.
Sikaula Mwanakatwe has since pleaded not guilty to one colonial count of ‘Idle and disorderly person’ contrary to section 178 of the Penal Code.
It is alleged that Mwanakatwe whilst acting with other people did conduct himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace. (While alone in a toilet)
He has applied for bail and asked the court to compel the police to return his cell phone, keys and a vehicle which were seized from him.
Lusaka Magistrate Tandose Chabala has reserved ruling on the matter to tomorrow.
