By Wilson Mulinda-Economic and Equity Party Leader Chilufya Tayali has urged society not to politicize the sentencing of National Democratic Congress -NDC- Leader Chishimba Kambwili.
Mr. Tayali says there is nothing political about the prosecution of Mr. Kambwili because the law only took its course for a crime committed.
Speaking to ZNBC News in Lusaka today, Mr. Tayali said he started pursuing the case of the NDC leader as far back as 2014 when he was still a Cabinet Minister.
Yesterday, Lusaka principal resident magistrate David Simusamba handed down a one-year sentence with hard labour on Mr. Kambwili for forgery and uttering a false document.
And Mr. Tayali has appealed to President Edgar Lungu to set up a commission of inquiry into privatisation of national assets.
