His lawyers, from Simeza, Sangwa and Associates, did not appear in Lusaka magistrates court, as arranged.  He then engaged Mulilo Kabesha, the lawyer representing his co-defendant. The case was then adjourned so that his new lawyer could obtain documents form Simeza, Sangwa. Professor Chirwa is charged under 28 (1) of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Act number 3 of 2012.
