The Ndola high Court was yesterday morning kept guessing on the whereabouts of Patrick Mwanawasa to commence hearing in the Kafulafuta parliamentary election petition.

Patrick’s absence forced the court to adjourn the matter twice with the hope of securing his attendance. When the matter was recalled at exactly 12:30, Patrick’s lawyer, Benson Siame informed the court that his client had communicated to him via phone that he was tied up.

Mr. Siame added Patrick promised that he would be in Ndola before the end of business but never turned up due to his busy schedule. This forced Ndola court Judge Mary Mulanda to adjourn the matter to today in the interest of justice.

Patrick Mwanawasa is petitioning the election of MMD’s James Chiseba as Kafulafuta Member of Parliament. Patrick is the son of former late republican president Levy Mwanawasa.




  2. You are Patrick,not Levy Patrick Mwanawasa,get that into your thick hair style.Very childish.That judge must also be serious

  3. Certainly not an MP the people of Kafulafuta deserve. Arrogance or plain indisposed? Is telling of what kind of MP if he won the petition?

  4. The PF strategy was to exploit the boy for bearing his father’s name (Mwanawasa) to gain the support of the Lambas. After the election Patrick was dumped into a chasm of isolation. As a non Bemba, he could not rewarded in any form. Sata and PF consider the boy irrelevant. So Patrick must fend for himself – but Court cases are extremely expensive to administer.

  5. That judge ought to be reminded that its Patrick not Levy Patrick she is dealing with,how do you adjourn twice and the character is still at large.Dismiss it with costs.

  6. simply contempt. we ve all been to court and there’s no way the court can fit its schedule to suit the complanants jus quash it. Buru shit!

  7. Very right #2 & 4. This young man is being arrogant. So because he was the former President’s son he above the law? This is why chaps become foolish. All men are equal before the law regardless of status. If the judge doesn’t act decisively is this not why LAZ speaks of the need for judicial reform? This Union that is criticising LAZ should note the conduct of its member. Accountablilty should start somewhere. Chaps are paid using public funds.

  8. Through the case out without thinking twice. The young man is silly. Aderera maningi mfana uyu, afunika mambama…………

  9. That is the problem with afros.  They suck out all the greymatter between the ears and end up as bushy black matter on top of the head!  Seriously, why is the judge contorting the process so much and accepting such ridiculous excuses?  If it is not important to young Mwanawasa, then it cannot be important to the court.

  10. He has a serious drinking problem, this. Chap drinks every single day. He honestly believes that PF will tolerate him? He’s irrelevant and dull, nicho shi shita chi mwana. Echi mwe. Clearly politics is not for him, he should try modeling or some tamanga business.

  11. That is why we are always going to be ruled by old and finished pre-independence cadres who are only capable of organising throwing of stones at the colonial masters. This boy is messing up with chances for more visibility and robust debate by youths in parliament. At the pace and direction the Zambian youth think, I wouldn’t be surprised to see William Tekere Banda emerge in 2016 as the 3rd Malawian President of Zambia. Nowonder we even voted for a dynasor in Sata. Zambian youth are sleepy.

  12. LOL, Ba Patrick…ni hangover ya bwanji? You pormised that you would make it to court. Next time, please refuse FREE beers PLEASE! hahahaha, at one more beer…uchenjele…
