Milingo wants DPP cited for contempt


THE Constitutional Court has allowed former Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) provisional liquidator Milingo Lungu to file the record of motion out of time in the matter he is seeking contempt of court proceedings against the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Gilbert Phiri.

In this matter Milingo wants DPP Phiri cited for contempt for interfering in a matter that is before court.

On March 7, 2022, Lungu entered into a non-Prosecution or immunity agreement with the DPP exempting him from prosecution for acts done in the performance of his duties as provisional liquidator of KCM.

However, when Phiri was sworn in as DPP, he announced at a press Conference that he had revoked the Immunity Agreement granted to Lungu based on public outcry, the immunity which was a subject of court proceedings.

In this matter, the State had objected to the application, however, Constitutional Judge Justice Mathews Kasonde Chisunka allowed the application by Lungu to file the record of motion out of time. Justice Chisunka has directed Lungu’s lawyers, Makebi Zulu advocates to file the record of motion on March 9, 2023.
