Party leader, Tayali, to know fate January 16 in alleged case of inciting mutiny


Magistrate Kelvin Soma has set January 16 as a date it would rule whether EEP leader, Chilufya Tayali, has a case to answer or not.

This is in a matter he was charged with inciting to mutiny.

Tayali pleaded not guilty to inciting mutiny contrary to section 48 subsection A of the penal code chapter 47 of the law of Zambia.

Magistrate Soma said he received the submissions on Tuesday and had to go through in readiness for a ruling.

It was alleged that Tayali on an unknown date but between March 1, 2022 and April 4, 2022 in Lusaka, advisedly did attempt to seduce persons serving in the defence forces from their duty and allegiance to the President by writing on his Facebook page to which he said “I do not remember advocating for the defence forces, because they have always been paid on time, but now, they are calling on me to speak for them, it is a shame.

“These guys keep our security, you can be frustrating them or trying their patience.”
