The opposition UPND and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have shown that they will not give up easily on the impeachment motion by applying to join the case in which Robert Chabinga and Henry Mulenga and have halted the motion through a court action.
UPND and NDC through Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament and his Roan counterpart have applied to join the matter in which the PF aligned petitioners were pushing for a consent judgment to quash the motion that has been filed in parliament.
The motion has stirred political commotion since it was filed in parliament but could not be debated as the housed adjourned prior to the movers being accorded a chance to table the motion.
Nkombo is the mover of the motion while Kambwili seconded the move.
The PF aligned duo of Mulenga and Chabinga are of the view that the Speaker should not have accepted the motion as it was unreasonable.
Among the legal representatives for the petitioners are Lewis Mosho and Hobdya Kabwe.
Judge Bobo Banda granted Chabinga and Mulenga an ex parte order for leave to apply for judicial review granted on 4th April, 2018.
The application for leave was to operate as a stay of the decision of the Speaker of the National Assembly to table the Notice of Motion to impeach the President pending the full determination of the matter or until any further direction by the court.
