fb_img_1478085669182The opposition United Party for National Development ( UPND ) has suffered yet another courtroom defeat at the hands of the Constitutional Court after Justice Mungeni Mulenga threw out their action, reports Zambian Report.

In one of their multiple court actions the UPND were challenging whether it was right for President Edgar Lungu to have been sworn in the absence of a declaration that he won by the Constitutional Court.

Judge Mungeni Mulenga threw out the UPND action labelling it an abuse of the court process.

Judge Mulenga said that the action was an attempt by the UPND to retry the petition.

The application has been dismissed with costs.

The UPND has another matter before the High Court where they are asking them to ascertain their right to be heard through the bill of rights.

The initial petition was thrown out on September 5 UPND petition for lapse of time.

President Edgar Lungu was sworn in on September 13 essentially rendering UPND court action redundant but the UPND has not let go have been hopping from court to court.

  5. Expecting a different result from Mngeni Mulenga is similar to expecting a monkey in a maize field to give your maize back or a mouse to give you your nuts back. Judge Mulenga is Lungu’s blue eyed lady put there deliberately to protect him. After all she is related to him as an in-law. Remember she is the one who gave the consert judgement in favour of Lungu during the PF infight. Why didn’t HH and GBM insist on a full bench or different judges to hear the case instead of the same judge who swindled them in the petition!

  11. Arn’t there any other judges in this concourt circus thing?Some names bring bitter tastes to peoples `buds’ so soon,like the name Diramba was to soccer fans a couple o years ago,and if he were to be given another Zambia game to officiate immeadately after that fiasco,is the same scenario with the current C.Concourt judges,twapapata,they’ll be other issues which will be brought before this C.Court,restore its confidence,stop the fight!the towel has already been thrown into the ring,lest the fans scramble in and afree for all ensues..

  15. I remember before elections I said Edger is not a good leader but make no mistake, he is very good at fixing opponents.Here we are! No postnewspaper, no muvi tv, no komboni radio, the list is endless and even this fight by upnd is a waste of time and money.Just organise the part, forget about this, its gone for good.

  17. wasting time indeed. zambians have failed to see beyond their nostrils. foreigners have taken over the country. ma nyansalandi . They have retired mostly non easterners in many government departments especially in op. Op is dominated by easterners starting with cleaners upwards. The president must look into this. Majority officers are not happy at all. Too much of mukwasu/wako ni wako isn’t good. Your excellence revisit the regester to balance the system.

  18. God is the only faithful judge, if it means that we shall suffer for the sake of ignorance then let it be so but if truly we as zambians have repented God will give us the able leader before the end of this year mark my words!!!!!!!
