Court subpoena Mpinganjira to testify in Mphwiyo shooting case

High court judge Michael Ntambo has summoned evangelist-cum-politician Brown Mpinganjira to testify in a case which Macdonald Kumwembe together with lawyer Ralph Kasambala and businessman Pika Manondo are answering attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder on Mphwiyo.

Mpinganjira: Summoned to testify

Mpinganjira: Summoned to testify

This follows some witnesses mentioning Mpinganjira’s name  in court.

It all started when Mphwiyo in his tesmony said he was receiving pressure from ministers and politicians  to authorize payments but refused.

He said at some time, then Peoples Party (PP) Publicity Secretary Hophmally Makande instructed Mpinganjira to give Mphwiyo an ultimatum of 10 days to either authorize a payment or will face some unknown actions.

During his testimony on Monday Makande denied issuing or directing Mpinganjira to warn Mphwiyo saying during that time, he was too junior on party rank.

Mpinganjira was appointed PP Vice President for the Southern Region.

However, on Tuesday morning Judge Ntambo wondered why Mpinganjira was not being listed as a witness.

Director of Public Prosecution Mary Kachale told the court that if the judge sees it fit to do so then he can be subpoenaed as a witness at the end of the hearing.

The Judge then announced that he has subpoenaed Mpinganjira to testify on January 15.

The case has been adjourned to January 12.

Not sure where Mary is taking this case. We forget that some of the convictions this paper have erroneously attributed to her are about mr Nyasulu. Any way let us see where this particular case actually goes

If he’s summoning on the basis of names mentioned in the court, then he needs to go further and summon the likes of Bruno Kalemba and Bophani. The court needs to unravel both sides of this saga – who shot mphwiyo and why, and what the law enforcers did in the days or weeks after.
