UPND Election Petition Adjourned

Opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba will have to wait longer to make progress in the election matter after judge Mwila Chitabo adjourned the matter to April 11-12

Judge Chitabo has been hit with an application to recuse himself from the matter after Hichilema and Mwamba applied to have him removed from the matter for allegedly being biased.

The application has cast aside adjudication on the main matter until the motion on judge Chitabo is exhausted.

Judge Chitabo adjourned the matter to April 11 and 12 when the Attorney General is expected to respond.

Hichilema and Mwamba are seeking an order that the manner in which the Constitutional Court construed the 14 days in Article 101 and 103 was ultra vires Article 18(9) of the Constitution.

The duo has put the court on trial with another complaint before the Judicial Service Complaints Commission against the judges of the Constitutional Court whom they have accused of being biased and incompetent.

    Crying over spilled milk does not work. Better u just buy new packet of milk. 2021 is coming, if u win then put judges in soup. If u fail then forget about politics.

      So that’s why you keep on stealing from others thinking that they will forget it just like that? Never, this time “nipaka kumapedo” hh don’t give up until the big tree is uprooted.

        Imwe ba Princ k muliitole zoonai! who stole? what? From who? Is that how hh corrupted yo mind? U ‘re just making sure that yo candidate (hh) looses the 2021 G elections bcoz of yo idiotic stubborness & backward mentality type. The idiotic part of it is where someone thinks his/her vote was so stronger than others & thats bulshit.

          Armyworm Phiri, the correctional facilities are mostly filled with convicts that until their sentencing maintained a plea of “not guilty”. It is the evidence that weighs heavily against them. It is in ECL’s and the country’s interest to have the petition heard to its logical conclusion. If the courts, upon weighing the evidence, find that ECL was duly elected, then the matter will have been put to rest.

    Zambian judiciary is compromised. No fare hearing in this country. People died without being cleared by our courts of law.

    Looks like zambians are blind to reality. Who benefting from this crooked gvt? Who doesnt know that they cheated inorder to fale theirway. Money and bear wont save the brainless fellows. Wake up.

  13. Amir havantu

    I hope you have history students on your forum. 59 years after your flesh has ceased to be fertilizer/manure on my farm, the next generation of thinkers will hail HH for democratizing institutions in Z. This is what the current supporters and below average (ba) 0baseline road contributors to this forum don’t see. As always, ba (below average) contributors will see this as an attack on their boss.

      HH and GBM are serial dreamers! They will never rule this country and by their behaviour one can clearly see that greed is the motiving factor for their quest for political power.Zambians should never make a mistake of putting them in power because given such a chance they will put the economy of this country in dirty pockects!

    These fools are just time waisters, don’t mind them they will come back to their senses as time goes by, because it is had for them to believe that they lost election which they prepared so well.

    HH the fact that he will never b president,he is a time waster,is not a factor,tribalist n violent together with GBM.And there party is a dead party n buried.It was vibrant when mr mazoka was its president,if mr mazoka was alive he was going to b president n upnd in power.The party is finished,it was born a long time n died in 2006 n buried.HH no matter hw many tyms he goes to court for petitions it wont work he is a tym waster y can’t he keep his cattle n move on.Apa ni ECL n pabwato,ifintu ni ECL even 2021.

    • mudo

      JUst look at the number of comments attributed to HH. If he was not a factor, then why are all PF empty bins making a lot of noise when he opens his mouth? Mwapena thats what we shall call you. HH has a traceable record of success. Check your boss and booze and Compare HH and cattle. He feeds zambia through many outlets selling meat not killing people thru promoting tujilijili. Wait and see how you will suffer up to 2021 and then check on HH and his supporters will have developed.
      Enjoy your poverty mwape.

    Let justice prevail. They are not wasting their time nor are they waiting any ones time. The issue has not been concluded yet, for no judge or indeed any court has heard the case. The problem here is that the so-called judges fear for their jobs as they have all been appointed by the so-called president. Remember the case before hand is not only beneficial to individuals, but for clarity in case of future misinterpretation. If lungu is really a lawyer he calls himself, and if he genuinely won the election,let the judges rule independently. Otherwise he himself does not recognise himself as a legitimate president of the country.

    some pipo are blind sana baba matole nga helfer bull ilya namwene Ku Huntley(Zambeef)farm,let me make it clear 2 u opposites, we don’t hate yo party but H.H,if u want 2 prove this let us exchange presidents,E.C.L on upnd,smart e.c.l will win,u free 2 reply with an insult or don’t reply ask G.B.M 4 the ka latest insult not eko twaumfwapo.

    We Zambians should’nt give a chance to a gang of two to rule this country.HH and GBM are gangsters who are only interested in amassing wealth at expense of the majority of poor Zambians.Inspite of the amount of wealth which they claim to have there is nothing in their cv to show that they’ve a heart for poor of the poorest in society.HH even gets annoyed when is asked about the source of his wealth.How do you entrust the wealth of the nation to a such crooked person?

  20. Chisenga

    ACTUALLY, HH IS VERY HAPPY WITH THE ADJOURNMENT. THAT IS WHAT HE WANTS. BECAUSE THIS WILL KEEP HIM IN THE DRIVING SEAT OF PRESIDENCY OF UPND. HE KNOWS THAT JUDGE CHITABO WAS GOING TO MAKE A VERY SWIFT RULING. AND THAT COULD HAVE CURTAILED HIS PLANS TO REMAIN UPND PRESIDENT. JUDGE CHITABO WILL NOT BE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO SHOOT HIMSELF IN THE FOOT BY AGREEING THAT “YES I AM A COMPROMISED JUDGE”. NEVER , NOT JUST AT SOME FOOLISH ALLEGATIONS WHICH CANNOT BE SUBSTANTIATED.

    HH and GBVM you are fools fooling your carders you are still loosing. Dindnt you have pooling agents in your pooling station ? Us PF we got results from our pooling agents country wild before the final results. It seems party is full of dou people. Tukamiwina nakabili. Muchule bwino

    it really foolish to have these stupid comments posted on this platform. y do you keep insulting innocent individuals. what you forget is what the Bible states, do unto others as u would want them to do unto you. remember God is watch u wherever u are.in fact u have not helped hh in any way neither have u given him your coin to let his pertion be heard.please stop posting your nonsense keep away from following this issue. the fact that u following this pertion is that u want change if it wasn’t so u would not have being bothering to know the progress on pertion.u have a lot to read in this world so y wasting your time reading about things that are not beneficial to u.

    Hh said that he will not accept the outcome of the presidential result of 11 august 2015. To me he already knew that he can’t win, especially that I am still alive. In bemba they say uwawa tabulakabepesho. Besides if he can’t accept other people’s victory whom does he think is gonna accept his result if at all he won (which can not happen)? To hell with your selfish savior.

      Lets stop dividing our selves. no tribe and language is more superior than the other. if you look down on other tribes as inferior, then you say God is inferior because he created them in his image. southern, Eastern, Western, Northern, North Western, Luapula, have a peculiar Talent that when put together can build zambia. stop politicizing, Lungu and HH know the truth. let the two come to the reasoning table and end this nonsense. If Lungu avoids HH, it proves how immature he might be. As a gentle, He must call HH, Gbm and reason together over the future of zambians. i Love you brothers and sisters, lets stop insulting our leaders and help them reason responsibly.

  35. arnold chibuluma mooya

    ‘advice to Lungu’. if you really no you stole the victory from HH by bribing ecz and judges, then give it back to the owner. because you are fighting God indirect for God appoints leaders, kings etc. do listen to some greedy wolves encompusing you. they have no love for zambia at heart. the truth you know in your heart brother Edgar. Don’t make Sekhuru Mugabe’s mistakes, he was a goodman but he was misled by selfish leaders. Be like Mandele, die a hero for a good name is better than wealth. George Washington rejected the greed peoples offer for a third term in office and did what was right for the love of his nation and its unity. Wish you the best Edgar. Stop authorizing Officers beating your brothers and sisters. we are one either UPND or PF. God Bless you as you make the truth be know and be a hero. Salute you Brother Ed
