Kaizer Zulu’s court absence lands colleague in jail

THE well-intentioned action of signing bond for his problematic comrade Kaizer Zulu has landed Lumezi Constituency member of parliament Munir Zulu in detention.

Zulu is currently detained at Ridgeway Police Post within the precincts of the Lusaka Magistrates Court complex following his apprehension this morning.

He was captured by Immigration Department in honor of the warrant of arrest issued against him by principal resident magistrate Sylvia Munyinya for failing to shepherd Kaizer to Court and for missing court to explain his absence.

Yesterday magistrate Munyinya wondered why State machinery failed to find the elusive Kaizer and his surety Munir who was equally in hiding yet he was active on Mark Zuckerberg’s blue social app.

She reprimanded the arresting officer Frank Mulimakau for failing to execute the bench warrants.

Munir had signed a surety in order to secure Kaizer’s temporal freedom whilst he is appearing before Court for failing to surrender his diplomatic passport after he was dropped by his former boss Edgar Lungu for using his position to bully members of the general public.

Kaizer is also alleged to have sneaked into the Country after he was caught masquerading as a diplomat in Kenya.

After he was found with a case to answer for breaching immigration rules and giving false information to public officers, Kaizer has failed to defend himself and has gone into hiding.

In confirming the development Immigration department public relations officer Namati Nshinka said Munir who has been evading law enforcement officers was caught hiding at a named lodge in Roma around 08:00 hours.

The law maker is tomorrow expected to appear before Lusaka chief resident magistrate Davies Chibwili who ordered for his arrest first, for absconding Court in a matter were he is facing charges of libel for accusing two government ministers of engaging in graft.

Munir will have to spend a week in police custody awaiting to be arraigned before magistrate Munyinya on July 18.
