Considering the calibre of the case, it is peculiar that Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lilian Shawa Siyuni’s signature is conspicuously absent from most if not all documents in the treason case against UPND president Hakainde Hichilema (HH). The documents have instead been signed by some of Siyuni’s employees, which has been highlighted by the defence as irregular, and caused some speculation as to her stand in this case. Could it be that Siyuni, like many legal commentators, are of the opinion that the charge has no merit?
