Chilubaís fate to be known this Friday

THE fate of former Republican president Federick Chiluba over corruption charges he is facing will be known this Friday when judgment comes up in the Lusaka Magistrates Court. 

The judgment to be delivered by Ndola High Court Registrar Johns Chinyama, sitting as a magistrate, was last month deferred to this Friday in light of the consent judgment passed to allow Chiluba file his submissions out of the court's time.

Chiluba's corruption case closed in March this year and judgment was set for July 20.

In an interview recently, Chiluba's spokesperson Emmanuel Mwamba said the parties in the matter sat in chambers after Chinyama called for a meeting in light of the consent judgment passed to allow Chiluba file his submissions out of court's time.

Mwamba said state prosecutor Mutembo Nchito then informed the parties that he would not respond to Chiluba's submissions because the reply to the submission for defunct Access Financial Services Limited (AFSL) former directors, Aaron Chungu and Faustin Kabwe, were adequate.

In this matter, Chiluba is separately charged with Kabwe and Aaron Chungu for theft by public servant, involving about US $500,000 public funds.

The Post from covering the theft case following an application by Chiluba's lawyer Robert Simeza, who expressed concern about an article in that day's newspaper headlined 'Chiluba refuses to swear to tell truth'.

Magistrate Chinyama said the article was misleading and highly prejudicial.

The matter comes up for judgment this Friday.
