Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS - By NA­TION RE­PORTER

IT is mad­ness for Lewis Mosho to de­mand K5 mil­lion in dam­ages, Roan mem­ber of Par­lia­ment Chishimba Kamb­wili has charged. But Mr. Mosho says he can­not com­ment on bank­ruptcy pro­ceed­ings that his clients Robert Chabinga and Henry Mu­lenga in­tend to com­mence against Mr. Kamb­wili and his Maz­abuka Cen­tral coun­ter­part Gary Nkombo. Mr. Kamb­wili was re­act­ing to a re­minder in which Mr. Mosho’s law firm Lewis Nathan Ad­vo­cates has warned the two MPs that they risk los­ing their seats through bank­ruptcy pro­ceed­ings if they fail to pay the K5, 000,000 in costs the High Court awarded against them. On May 24, 2018, Lusaka High Court Judge An­nesie Bobo -Banda awarded the costs against the duo af­ter dis­miss­ing their ap­pli­ca­tion to join the case in which Mr. Chabinga and Mr. Mu­lenga ap­plied for ju­di­cial re­view of the al­leged de­ci­sion by Speaker of the Na­tional As­sem­bly Pa­trick Mat­i­b­ini to table the im­peach­ment mo­tion against Pres­i­dent Lungu in Par­lia­ment. Later, Lewis Nathan Ad­vo­cates and two other law firms rep­re­sent­ing Mr. Chabinga and Mr. Mu­lenga pegged and de­manded their costs at a col­lec­tive to­ken of K5, 000,000. But speak­ing to jour­nal­ists yes­ter­day shortly af­ter ad­journ­ment of the case in which Mr. Kamb­wili is charged with his son Mwamba and two Zambia Rev­enue Au­thor­ity of­fi­cers for al­leged cor­rupt ac­tiv­i­ties, the Roan MP de­scribed the de­mand as a joke of the year. “Go and tell Mosho that that is the great­est joke of the year…You go into court and you make one ap­pli­ca­tion to be joined to a case, it is dis­missed and you ask for K5 mil­lion, I should have been a lawyer.
