Headlines

The Chipàta Magistrate Court has maintained that trial in the matter where suspended Patriotic Front (PF) Provincial Youth Chairperson Emmanuel Jay Banda is charged with unlawful assembly will take place on the 24th and 25th of September 2020.
This follows an application by the defence to have the case deferred to another date as Mr Banda is also scheduled to appear in another Court in Lusaka.
Mr Banda, who was aided by a walking stick, appeared for mention before Senior Resident Magistrate Boniface Mwala pending the commencement of trial on the 24th and 25th of September 2020.
However, Magistrate Mwala denied the application to change the dates for trial, stating that his court set the dates for trial earlier than the court in Lusaka.
He said changing the dates for trial will affect his diary as matters in his court will also be affected.
Magistrate Mwala stated that there will be consequences if Banda does not appear on the stated dates.
