Court adjourns Chiluba corruption judgment to Monday

JUDGMENT in the case where former president Frederick Chiluba is charged with corruption has been adjourned again to Monday August 17, 2009. Chiluba's spokesperson Emmanuel Mwamba announced the adjournment around 09:15 hours this morning at the Lusaka magistrate's court complex.

"The court will not be sitting today, it will be sitting on Monday. The judgment has been adjourned to Monday 09:00 hours, so we should come on Monday 09:00 hours," he said

And in an interview outside the court building, Mwamba said Ndola High Court deputy registrar Johns Chinyama, who is sitting as magistrate in the Chiluba case, had indicated that he was not ready to pass the judgment yet.

"He called all the lawyers to his chambers and announced that he was not yet ready. So we don't know what that means, if it's him who is not ready or the judgment. He just said I am not yet ready," Mwamba said.

Scores of Lusaka residents, some senior government officials and Chiluba's family members this morning thronged the magistrate's court to witness the landmark judgment involving the former Republican president.

This is a corruption case in which Chiluba is charged with Access Financial Services Limited director Faustine Kabwe and Aaron Chungu for theft of public servant involving about US $500, 000 public funds. The case was closed in March this year.

Judgment in the case was initially set for July 20th and later suspended to today in light of the consent judgment passed to allow Chiluba file his submissions out of the court's time.
