ZAMBIANS should ignore insinuations and innuendoes being circulated by some individuals and media houses that the Annel Silungwe Tribunal investigating suspended Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito has postponed its siting for the second time because it is lacking truth against the DPP, civil rights activist Brebner Changala has said.
Mr Changala who had petitioned President Edgar Lungu to constitute a tribunal to investigate Mr Nchito over a range of allegations said the tribunal that adjourned three weeks ago would certainly resume its sitting next week on Tuesday.
Mr Changala said he was aware that the tribunal had postponed its sitting for the second time because one of the members had international engagements prior to the adjournment which he had to fulfil and it was therefore incorrect for some individual to begin peddling lies that the tribunal had failed to commence its formal sittings.
Mr Changala however said the biggest challenge the tribunal has had was how to manage information and how to disseminate it to the general public by the secretariat and that some malicious individuals sponsored by the clique had taken advantage to peddle lies about the tribunal.
He said knowing the anxiety that had been created, it was important for the tribunal secretariat to effectively manage information so that people could remain adequately informed as opposed to listen to speculation.
