High Court Judge Edward Musona has ruled that the video which formed part of the evidence which led to the nullification of the election of Nkandu Luo as Munali Member of Parliament is authentic.

This is a case where Professor Luo has appealed to the Constitutional Court to overturn the High Court’s decision to nullify her seat.

In his ruling today, Judge Musona said he was satisfied that the material evidence upon which the court based it’s nullification of the Munali seat was authentic.

The ruling follows a directive from the Constitutional Court for the High Court to view the video which depicts some violence during the Munali campaigns in the run up to the 2016 general elections.

In the video, PF cadres are seen attacking opposition UPND cadres who were on a campaign trial at Mutendere market. The cadres stoned a UPND branded bus as occupants run for their lives.

“My observation is that what i saw on 5th October 2017 is the same as what i saw on 20th March 2018. This is because this is a Court of facts and I took notes which formed part of the case records.

“On 20th March 2018, I also took notes and took time to compare the two viewings. This can be verified from the records of proceedings from my notes of 5th October 2016.

“I’m satisfied that the material evidence upon which this court based it’s nullification of the munali seat is authentic.”
