First witness in a bribery case involving well-known business tycoon Thom Mpinganjira, Justice Mike Tembo has implicated Brown Mpinganjira of having a hand in the case.
Tembo told the court that through his interaction with Thomson Mpinganjira, there was a project hatched in the top hierachy of DPP through some lawyers to bribe the Con-Court judges.
He said the top banker Mpinganjira wanted to know whether the money, in excess of K100 million, was reaching the judges.
Justice Tembo told the court that, according to Mpinganjira, money was being sent through Justice Lovemore Chikopa.
He said the former Group Chief Executive officer for FDH Holdings told him that at one time Justice Healey Potani had dropped Justice Chikopa at his cousin, Brown Mpinganjira.
“I might be wrong but the person who was bringing money to Justice Chikopa should be Brown Mpinganjira,” Tembo said on the stand.
Tembo said according to Mpinganjira, three judges on the Con-Court panel received money from the DPP.
However, Tembo said he had no evidence that the said judges had indeed received the money.
