Chiluba, will they get him back to court?

The Task Force on Corruption is reportedly having problems filing in the appeal against the acquittal of former president Fredrick Chiluba.

Information received indicate that Task Force prosecutor Mutembo Nchito drafted the appeal but it has no consent from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The notice of appeal was filed in a Lusaka magistrate court registry but the senior clerk rejected it saying it has no authority of the DPP.

The Post reported in its Monday edition that the state has appealed and filed in seven ground of appeal which the paper outlined in its printed version.

But Task Force chairman Max Nkole disputed the story on radio Phoenix saying he has just indstructed the lawyers to proceed.

By late afternoon, the Watchdog was informed that the Task Force was struggling to file in the appeal but it was not yet clear if the DPP has given his consent
