And Magistrate Malata has adjourned the matter to May 17, 2017 for plea and possible commencement of trial after the Prosecution requested to have the case adjourned pending further instructions from Zambia's Director of Public Prosecution, DPP.
In the new charge, it is alleged that Munyinda Munukayumbwa, on March 12, 2015 wrote a statement on social media (Facebook), saying: "I CURSE STATE HOUSE UNTIL THE ISSUE OF BAROTSELAND IS SETTLED!" in apparent reference to Zambia’s official presidential house.
He has since denied the allegation.
Meanwhile, bail has been denied again but Magistrate Malata promised to hear Munyinda's application for bail soon.
Although Munyinda has been sick for a while now, he has reportedly not been given medical attention and was yesterday moved to Zambia's Mongu Central Prison, where he will now be remanded.
