Sata talks about M’membe’s conviction

Patriotic Front president, Michael Sata says the conviction of Post editor-in-chief Fred M’membe on contempt of court was predictable because government has always wanted to silence him.
Mr.M’membe was this morning found guilty by Lusaka Magistrate David Simusamba for contempt of court together with the Post newspapers in connection to an article authored by US-based Zambian professor Muna Ndulo titled “The Chansa Kabwela case:A Comedy of Errors”.
But Mr Sata tells Qfm in an interview that the MMD have always wanted to silence Mr. M’membe.
He says the court’s guilty verdict for the Post editor-in-chief was expected,adding that there is nothing strange about it.
