THE Lusaka Magistrates’ Court has acquitted former National Democratic Congress (NDC) party Chishimba Kambwili of forgery and possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime amounting to over K6 million.

Delivering judgment in the matter today, Lusaka High Court judge Mwaka Mikalile, sitting as a principal resident magistrate, acquitted Kambwili and others because the prosecution failed to prove the allegations against them.
