Supreme Court Throws Out Hichilema and GBM’s Application against Judge Chitabo

Supreme Court Judge Evans Hamaaundu has dismissed an application by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba to have High Court Judge Chitabo recuse himself from the matter in which they are seeking the High Court to grant them the right to be heard in their 2016 Presidential election petition.

Sitting in Kabwe this morning,Judge Hamaaundu who passed the ruling together with Judges Charles Kajimanga and Justice Rhoydah Kaoma said the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction over the matter.

He has since advised the petitioners to lodge fresh appeals in the court of appeal to compel Judge Chitabo recuse himself from hearing the matter.

The Supreme Court ruling now means that Judge Chitabo will continue to hear the matter in which he had earlier refused to recuse himself following an application by the petitioners to have him do so.

The petitioners (HH&GBM) are now expected to continue appearing before the High Court for the hearing of the matter in which they have asked the court to rule that they retain the rights to be heard in the matter in which they have challenged the election of Edgar Chagwa Lungu and Inonge Mutukwa Wina as President and Vice President of the Republic of Zambia in the 2016 Presidential election.

The petitioners have an option to appeal against Judge Chitabo’s refusal to recuse himself in the Court of Appeal or have the matter heard before Judge Chitabo.

    I conquer with Hon. Lubinda for observing that the Zambian judicial system should be repealed . It contains British laws used in the colonial era .
    Frankly speaking cases like the one in the above publication are supose to be deliberated upon within the specified period of time . For example not more than 90 days . I say so because what if the judgement turns out in favour of the pertitioners four years down the line .

    HH and GBM what are people thinking? You are busy talking about 2016 talk about 2021 you losers. This is why you are still loosing the by-elections even in your strong holds. Infact GBM u have destroyed what Mr.mazoka sweated for and as for HH you go back where you came from.To hell with these two cockroaches.

    UPND failed to sponsor the mayor & today l hear that he’s not going to sponsor councillors from north western province to come & attend a meeting here in lusaka, how do you expect them to empower youths or develop this country if they win in 2021? Please work on the leadership structure if not please look for someone.
