THE tribunal appointed to investigate allegations of professional misconduct against suspended Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito has rescheduled the date for the delivery of its ruling from May 7, 2015 to May 13, 2015.
“I wish to advise that the ruling that was reserved to be delivered by the Tribunal on May 7, 2015 has been rescheduled to May 13, 2015. Take note that the venue and the time remain the same – that is Mulungushi International Conference Centre, New Wing, at 09:00 hours,” Mr Zulu said.

Tribunal chairperson Annel Silungwe is expected to rule on Mr Nchito’s submission in which he wants former chief justices Ernest Sakala and Mathew Ngulube to recuse themselves from the tribunal sittings constituted to investigate his alleged professional misconduct, which Attorney-General Likando Kalaluka has described as ‘wild speculations’.
