UPND to sue Kabimba over allegation of killing PF cadre in L/stone

The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) has commenced legal action against Justice Winter Kabimba over his allegations that the opposition party is behind the killing of Western Province Minister Obvious Mwaliteta’s houseboy, Johan Lyakoka.

Justice Minister Winter Kabimba is quoted in today’s edition of the post newspapers alleging that the UPND is behind the killing of Johan, but Southern province police commissioner Charity Katanga has disclosed that results of a postmortem carried out show that Johan was killed in a road traffic accident.

UPND Livingstone by-election campaign manager Garry Nkombo says the UPND will pursue Mr. Kabimba through the legal channels on the matter.

Mr. Nkombo told a media briefing in Lusaka this morning that his party is also writing to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) on the breach of the electoral code conduct by Mr. Kabimba and Mr. Mwaliteta, as PF campaign manager for Livingstone, for issuing inflammatory remarks contrary to the conduct.

He has also appealed to President Michael Sata to discipline Mr. Kabimba stating that he is not only a threat to himself, but to the party and the country as a whole.

But according to ZNBC PF news, Kabimba who has never won a case as a lawyer, has urged the opposition party to go ahead if they have money to waste.
