Again, Magistrate criticises delays in effecting arrest of Kaizer Zulu, as interpol application pends


Lusaka Magistrate, Mutinta Mwenya, expressed dismay on Monday over the delay in executing a bench warrant against former President Edgar Lungu’s political advisor, Kaizer Zulu, who has been on the run for a year.

Zulu is charged with one count of conversion not amounting to theft.

Magistrate Mwenya questioned the prosecuting officer, Doreen Sumbule, about the delay, particularly given the recent emergence of a video on social media showing Zulu receiving medical attention allegedly in Zimbabwe.

Officer Sumbule acknowledged being aware of the video but failed to provide a satisfactory explanation for the delay.

The Magistrate pressed Sumbule on why the bench warrant had not been executed, despite the video evidence.

Sumbule responded that she was working with other officers to make an application through Interpol to arrest Zulu.

Unsatisfied with the response, Magistrate Mwenya adjourned the case to June 28 for a status update on the application and Zulu’s whereabouts.
