ConCourt Upholds Kang’ombe’s Election

The Constitutional Court has this morning upheld the election of Romeo Kangombe as member of parliament for Sesheke Constituency.

Mr. Kang’ombe was elected through a parliamentary by-election on February 5, 2019 but his closest contender, Dean Masule of the PF, petitioned the poll saying the election was not free and fair.

But High Court Judge Gertrude Chawatama, sitting in Livingstone last year, declared Mr. Kangombe duly elected.

Mr. Masule, however, still insisted that the election was not free and fair as it was marred by violence and character assassination and appealed the ruling of the High Court to the Constitutional Court.

Passing judgment on the appeal this morning, Constitutional Court Judge Martin Musaluke dismissed all the two grounds of appeal by Mr Masule and upheld the Mr. Kang’ombe’s election.

    Mr Masule why embarrassing yourself like that? people of sesheke rejected you so loud & clear remember 5 wards weren’t even announced.

    Even if defeat is painful lets learn to respect the outcome,congratulate the winner & give support so that the nation can move forward.It amazes me to see bitterness of losers in Zambia.

    Now if con court starts going this way then justice and fairness will be perceived to prevail.In addition Malawi c. court has set a precedent for their country.

    This is all they can do for a small fish in the pond while ignoring the hippo in the river. This is just cosmetic and adds no value to independence of the Judiciary. Go to Kenya and Malawi, you will come back with sense from your nonsense.
