FYI "Former Republican president Federick Chiluba has been acquitted by the Lusaka magistrates court over corruption charges he was facing involving the theft of US $500,000. The judgment delivered by Ndola High Court Registrar Johns Chinyama, sitting as a magistrate that took about six hours to deliver however found his co-accused Access Financial Services Limited former directors Aaron Chungu and Faustin Kabwe guilty. According to the judgment, the acquittal was based on the fact that the prosecution team failed to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt on all counts against the former president. "I find that the accused is not guilty on all counts," Chinyama said. We are satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the prosecution failed to prove that the accused stole funds, judge Jones Chinyama said as he read out the verdict in a six-hour hearing. I find that the accused is not guilty on all counts, Chinyama said. There was wild jubilation as sympathisers chanted pro-Chiluba songs as he left the court buildings. He immediately announced that he would be holding a press conference at his Kabulonga residence." >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Na leo Zambia ilikuwa hukumu ya Rais wa Zamani wa Zambia FTJ Chiluba.
