Lusaka Principal resident magistrate David Simusamba has jailed NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili to one year imprisonment for forgery and another year for uttering a false document.

The two sentences will run concurrently, meaning he will only serve a year.

Mr Kambwili has been convicted in count one of forgery and count two of uttering a false document.

He has, however, been acquitted of the charge of giving false information to a public officer.

His lawyer, Musa Mwenye, State Counsel, pleaded with the magistrate to exercise leniency on Mr Kambwili as he is a family man.

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
