He would now appear in the Subordinate Court for another case of insulting language.

Tembo, 43, is charged with one count of use of insulting language, contrary to Section 179 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.”

Facts are that on August 27, 2023, Tembo did post on his Facebook page saying, “Bally apa akangiwa kuipa. But mu 2026 ngati bantu bafuna kuvotela chipuba chinangu, its fine, SET can wait for 2031.”

The said words allegedly refered to Mr Hichilema, in a manner likely to provoke or cause the said person to break the public peace or to committ an offence.
