The Zambia elections have turned deadly and dirty as the current President, Edgar Lungu faces a tough opponent, Billionaire, Hakainde Hichilema, popularly known as HH.
This morning, the opposition leader was blocked from the court where NDC leader, Chishimba Kambwili was in court.
HH said Kambwili was arrested for trumped up political charges and did not commit any crime.
He said Lungu is a dictator and he must be removed from office.
The incident at the court follows the death of one of HH’s supporters who was stabbed by Lungu’s supporters and died in hospital last week.
Please watch the video Above for more details on HH being denied entry into court.
Kambwili is a former Zambian minister and leader of the NDC. He was planning to challenge Lungu in the 2021 Presidential elections.
Kambwili was charged with three counts of forgery, uttering a false document and giving false information to a public officer, in relation to the registration of Mwamona Engineering and Technical Services Limited.
In October 2013, with intent to defraud or deceive, Kambwili allegedly forged a ‘No change return’ (Companies Form 71) purporting to show that it was genuinely signed by his son Mwamba, when in fact not.
It is further alleged that Kambwili, knowingly and fraudulently, uttered the same document to an officer at Patents and Companies Registration Agency.
According to a complainant from Economic and Equity party leader Chilufya Tayali, the registration of Mwamona had anomalies.
He submitted that a national identity card number belonging to Kambwili’s sister Sampa was used to register his son, Mwamba, as one of the directors of the company.
Tayali’s contention was that Mwamba was a minor at the time for him to obtain a national registration card (NRC) and be registered as a director of Mwamona.
Tayali said the documents, in particular a no change return at PACRA, were signed by Kambwili on the pretext that they were signed by Mwamba.
