The case in which owners of the defunct Zambian Airways were sued over the K14 billion they obtained from the Development Bank of Zambia comes up in the High Court today.
The directors of the defunct Zambian Airways who included Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito, Post Newspaper owner Fred M’membe and Nchima Nchito are in court over the loan they refused to pay back to DBZ.
The directors appealed against an earlier judgment by High Court Judge Nigel C Mutuna who ordered the Airline to pay back the loan. They appealed to the Supreme Court.
The matter was sent back to High Court by the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Zambian Voice executive director Chilufya Tayali has applied to join the case on behalf of the tax payers for the money to be paid back.
