Nevers Mumba

The Lusaka High Court has dismissed with costs an application by MMD President Nevers Mumba for an injunction to restrain party National Secretary Muhabi Lungu from interfering in the smooth running of the office and functions of the party President.

In a ruling delivered this morning, High Court Judge Chalwe Mchenga ruled that Dr Mumba should have set out in definite terms what Mr Lungu should be precluded from doing during the period of the injunction.

This is a matter in which Dr Mumba had sued Mr Lungu in his capacity as National Secretary and asked the court to restrain him from interfering with the running of the office and functions of the party President.

Judge Mchenga said in the absence of definite parameters, a court cannot grant an injunction in very general terms as Mr Lungu cannot be held responsible for falling to comply with a prohibition that has not been specifically spelt out.
He added that Dr Mumba should have indicated whether the injunction he was seeking relates to the disciplinary proceedings against him, the party’s presidential campaign or otherwise.

Judge Mchenga has since discharged with costs the interim injunction granted to Dr Mumba on November 25 2014.
The ruling means that Mr Rupiah Banda is now free to contest the presidential election on the MMD ticket.

Efforts to reach Dr Mumba proved futile by broadcast time as he was in a meeting.
Meanwhile, MMD National Secretary Muhabi Lungu has welcomed the court verdict saying the party can now concentrate on campaign for its candidate Rupiah Banda. – Hot FM

  1. This the end of MMD!You gave it the best short man of God! Just wait upon God now. He will show you which way to go from here. “God will make a way where there seems to be no way!”
    For now see how Team Bwezani and Muhabi will be embarrassed and humiliated!

  2. in Never Mumba vs Rupiah Banda there were numerous deviations from sound jurisprudence. However I want to remind Nevers that when he abandoned God to join politics, he said these words in Chadiza that “He was missing a lot” This meant that politics were better than being a sound christian
