Duplicity

  BREBNER Changala is an honest, diligent and perhaps naïve public spirited citizen who now finds himself in the eye of a storm he least expected.

Tribunal mistake

THE decision to open any part of the Silungwe tribunal to the public was a serious mistake. It has given Mutembo Nchito and his business partner Fred M’membe an opportunity to vilify and scandalize people who have no opportunity of responding.

Collateral damage

THE unsolicited disclosure that Mutembo Nchito issued a nolle prosequi to Dr. Rajan Mahtani, the owner of Finance Bank on instructions from then Attorney General Mumba Malila, begs the question and fortifies our recommendation that the Silungwe Tribunal should be held in camera.

Professional dishonesty

  FRED M’membe, the editor of the Post Newspaper must declare interest in the Mutembo Nchito tribunal than continue to posture as an objective and disinterested party.

The hour has come

  It is futile to cast aspersions against the President for constituting a Tribunal against suspended Director of Public Prosecution Mutembo Nchito. This exercise is long long overdue. President Lungu is fulfilling his campaign promises to dismantle the cartel and win back billions of     kwacha stolen from public institutions by individuals who thought themselves above […]
