The members of Parliament from the opposition UPND have obtained an injunction from the High court to restrain the PF government, Speaker of the National Assembly and Attorney General from taking any action against them until the matter is heard.

This follows a move by the MPs to boycott the nation address to Parliament by President Lungu whom the UPND has refused to recognise.

  1. This was a brilliant move by the MPs,UPND Leadership and their Lawyers.In his quest to avoid Hearing the Petition Lungu was trying to compromise Parliament and block the UPND Petition again.The injunction takes Lungu back to the Courts which he has been avoiding thru the Petition Hearing process. Lungu has already compromised the Zambian Courts to block the Petition Hearing but without success. Ngwazi Lungu for obvious reasons wants to kill the Petition and finally achieve his dream of One Man Party Dictatorship and Rule Zambia forever. Ngwazi Lungu is under tremendous pressure to allow the Hearing of the Petition. Even the Docile SADC had no choice but to tell Lungu to finalise the Petition Hearing urgently in terms of the Zambian Law.The Petition is not going away any time soon as Lungu had hoped.The Commonwealth, AU,SADC,UN and the entire International Community are agreed and fed up with Lungu’s delaying tactics to hear the Petition.They are however, adamant and unanimous that the Petition be heard and disposed off urgently.Until the Petition is heard and determined and a Winner is declared by the Courts nobody will recognize Lungu as the Legitimate President of Zambia. Lungu Ayopa Chani? # Let the Petition be Heard without further delay.

  4. Silly PF MPs. They don’t learn a lesson. Their foolish action reminds me of the adoption of the Constitution. While the wise UPND members were saying NO to the Adoption of Constitution, the illiterate PF members were saying YES and eventually, the position of Deputy Minister of which many of them were holding got scrapped. On this one they were fighting hard to punish the UPND MPs but the opposite has happened. PF MPs, think before you leap to avoid looking stupid!

    • Remember your President spoke about the separation of powers between the Executive, Judiciary and the Legislature? So be careful on how you handle the Judiciary because the Judiciary wants to prove the President wrong or right!

  5. Lungu is a frustrated man. He destroyed the Courts to “kill” the UPND Petition but failed. He wanted this time around to ban the UPND MPs from Parliament hoping to use his MPs to Amend the Constitution and some how legitimise himself in power. The UPND Injunction closes that Option and forces Lungu to go back to the Court and the Petition.The tricks that Lungu has been using to delay the Hearing of the Petition are running out. Meanwhile Lungu was hoping to be recognized as President of Zambia without completing the Petition Processes.The international and Regional Bodies have refused to do this and are adamant that the Petition should be heard and dispose off urgently. Lungu is running out of options to delay or avoid the Petition Hearing altogether. Lungu is between a Rock and a Hard Place. Time will tell.

  8. This is a lesson for PF that next time elections should be more transparent. The fact that in Lusaka two seats were nullified means a lot as centre of stealing was focused in Lusaka where G12 forms were not provided.
