This is not a circus, court tells Kambwili’s lawyers


LUSAKA magistrate Nsunge Chanda will not allow her court to be misled by lawyers representing Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili, who missed a session on grounds that they are attending to matters in other courts.
The magistrate is disappointed that Kambwili’s four lawyers absconded court despite knowing the dates for hearing.
Magistrate Chanda was displeased yesterday when Kambwili appeared before her without lawyers in a matter he is charged with contempt of court.
“This court is not a circus where lawyers can just come and say we have matters in the High Court [and seek for an adjournment],” she said after learning that Kambwili’s lawyers were all absent.
