The Constitutional Court has set Friday 11 June for judgment in President Edgar Lungu’s eligibility case.

The case was brought up by Sishuwa Sishuwa, Linda Kasonde and the Legal Resource Foundation.

The petitioners are being representated by renowned constitutional lawyer, John Sangwa.

They are challenging Lungu’s eligibility on the grounds that he was sworn in twice and therefore can not be sworn in for the third time.

However, in his argument, Lungu maintains that he is not seeking a third term, but a second one.

Earlier, on the Court dismissed an application by three foreign-based Zambian lawyers, Professor Chaloka Beyani, Melvin Mbao, and Cephas Lumina, who are, and wanted to be joined to the matter as friends of the court.

The foreign-based academicians who are known to have no known track record in arguing constitutional issues in Zambian courts were to be represented by former LAZ President Eddie Mwitwa. Zambian Eye/ Smart Eagles
