It’s judgement day for Mwanakatwe

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The Constitutional Court is this morning expected to deliver its judgement on the petition appeal case of Lusaka Central Member of Parliament Margaret Mwanakatwe.

Mwanakatwe’s seat was nullified in the High Court after UPND candidate Charlotte Scott petitioned the 2016 constituency elections.

The election was nullified on grounds that Mwanakatwe had engaged in electoral malpractice.

If the Constitutional Court upholds the nullification of Mwanakatwe’s seat, Zambia will need a new Finance Minister.
