Court dismisses Kabimba’s application to order Vice President George Kunda to vacate office
The Lusaka High Court has dismissed an application by opposition Patriotic Front Secretary General Wynter Kabimba to order Vice President George Kunda to vacate office.
High Court Judge Albert Wood has ruled that the Vice President should continue to serve to cushion the power vacuum in an event, of a vacancy in the office of the President.
Judge Wood however turned down the application to strike out Mr Kunda from the proceedings.
He notes that the Vice President has a direct interest in the outcome of the proceedings.
This is in a matter in which Patriotic Front-PF Secretary General Mr Kabimba had applied that Vice President George Kunda should vacate office.
Mr Kabimba contended that Mr Kunda was appointed by virtue of his membership to the National Assembly which has been dissolved.
