The Supreme Court has ruled that the official candidate for the Movement for Multi Party Democracy to contest the forthcoming by election is Nevers Mumba.

The Supreme Court also affirmed that as a Supreme Court, it has powers to determine any matter.

At issue where the decision of a meeting by the National Executive Committee (NEC) held on 18th November 2014 which decided to suspend Nevers Mumba and adopted Rupiah Banda as the MMD Presidential Candidate and the court injunction issued by the High Court and obtained by Nevers Mumba.

The Judge below erred by failing to consider facts submitted by Nevers Mumba in his application for an interim court injunction and ignored those facts when discharging the injunction.

The court however accepted that the High Court Judge below did not evaluate the affidavits signed by Nevers Mumba.

The court ruled that the court injunction given to Nevers Mumba by the High Court was lawfully issued at exparte stage but was not properly discharged at the interparty hearing as facts submitted by Mumba were not properly considered.

The two hour Judgment was read on behalf of the full Supreme Court Bench by former Attorney General and new Supreme Court Justice Mumba Malila as Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda was conducting presidential nominations.

The Supreme Court also dismissed two preliminary issues raised by Muhabi Lungu.

It also dismissed a cross appeal that was made by another individual.

The Supreme Court also stated that it is allowed to hear extra information that would help the course of Justice and was not confined to only facts but will not allow an appeal on matters that were not discussed.

The Supreme Court also accepted the certificate of urgency filed by Nevers Mumba as any delay would escape the benefits accruing to the Plaintiff. The Supreme Court dismissed Muhabi Lungu’s concern that there was no urgent matter.

Mumba also stated that he was the lawful candidate for the forthcoming Presidential by-elections.

This is the case in which Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) Nevers Sekwila Mumba appealed a decision of the High Court that declared former President Rupiah Bwezani Banda as the Presidential Candidate.

Mumba was also challenging the decisions of a NEC Meeting that suspended him and picked Mr. Banda as the Presidential Candidate for the MMD.

      Am glad Justice has prevailed for once in Zambian politics. Banda is out and indeed that is how it should be. He was wasting his time and money. However, nevers Mumba is not presidential material. Did he fail to run his church? How will he run a country? I rest my case?

      “The Supreme Court also affirmed that as a Supreme Court, it has powers to determine any matter…”

      My brain is probably skewed (as usual) but it sounds like they are pretty much saying they can pick which candidates will contest an election. Hmm. Thought provokingly open to ‘mischief’. Chuckle.

      As constitutionalists we respect the verdict of the Supreme Court. However, truth is that under Nevers Mumba, MMD is going nowhere in the forthcoming bye-election. A significant opposition votes will move to HH but also to EL bumping up and consolidating the PF following. It brightens up the prospects of PF finishing up their 5 year ruling mandate.

      Expect more alignments and realignments in the run up to Decision 2015.

      Sad news for HH,he was hopping RB was going to spoil the Eastern vote for EL. We know HH and RB were in a pact and that’s why RB never cared about threats of taking away his benefits because he was promised that they were going to be restored if he helped UPND win by spoiling the Eastern province. How can one explain Mutati and Chituwo’s behaviour,they fought to remove Nevers but later on decided to endorse and campaign for HH.Viva Edgar Lungu.

      2. Let us all stop sapoting Edgar Muhammed Lungu because the man is a pure Muslim with Jihardist traits.

      3. Edgar Muhammed Lungu is not a Zambian but a refugee from Malawi who ran away due to Kamuzu Banda’s brutarity in 1970s.

      4. As Katondo boys, we are saying that all True PF Members should NOT go to the Supreme Courts on Saturday as our Edgar Lungu will not stand as he is about to charged with treason following 17/12/14 attempted coup he instigated against Guy Scott.

      5. We urge all well peace loving Zambians to vote for HH as our Lungu is a man without any vision for this country.

      Absolutely right judgement.Heart-warming and fairest verdict.Good enough to restore shuttered confidence in our justice system no seen in a long time.Dr Mumba has reclaimed his mandate from vultures that have suffocated him from the word Go.

      He deserves full support to articulate his vision for the party with no more distractions. Quite frankly What he’sgone through in the last 3 years is capable of undoing the strongest of men.

      Now is the time to move quickly and decisively to clean up all hurdles in his way.first , he needs a new national secretary to work for, not against him. By-elections for all known rebels are unavoidable. Their dismissals for gross indiscipline must be delivered with urgency to get back some sanity.

      Dear Dr. Mumba, we are so happy for you for many reasons, and among them are;
      1. RB has been taught a lesson that this country is far bigger than his team of schemers and himself
      2. You have shown great signs of capacity and capability to form alternative government to PF
      3. You have not personalized the fight by showing Muhabi true love
      4. RB has lost his benefits, as he did not deserve them in the first place.

      The list is endless. Happy for you indeed.

    Totally agreed, this is an awesome decision and hopefully we have time to make up the lost ground and the beauty is that it has come from the Supreme court and this makes it really sweet and now stabilises MMD.

    THis is now the time to really cleanse the party at next year’s convention. Rule of law must be respected and we can’t allow the culture that killed UNIP to take root in MMD. RB was no doubt a great leader and shame to those that misled the old man. It is now time for him to play his rightful role in the party as he said when he handed over power.

      I don’t think it reasonable to force Dr Mumba to work with him. He was a faithless servant that tried to get rid of his master. Much as Dr Mumba is a Christian Pastor, can he be expected to tolerate a man who was openly disrespectful to him?

    EL can almost put Eastern under his column, though at the price of Northern and Luapula votes which now have their own son.

    Net for HH is net positive, as he will still poll the majority having picked up RBs votes elsewhere.

    Biggest losers are those rebel MMD MPs that will now need to find shelter before 2016.

      Eastern has been an MMD stronghold. PF have no base there. The party will now have to redefine itself in the province and count its blessings elsewhere. In the immediate, I see Eastern as a toss-up. PF and its drama will be a complete hard sell there even with the EL factor.

    On a sad note this seems to be very bad news for HH. The MMD votes will split in favour of PF. Remember that PF is an offshoot of MMD. Although PF took power to extremes, MMD and PF are basically one and the same people.

    With this turn of events, a likely permutation of results is as follows:

    Third position: MMD with 200,000 votes
    Second position: UPND with 600,000 votes
    First position and the winner: PF with 1,200,000 votes

He will tell his followers to inflict harm on MMD first, and PF second (he has to disengage PF from power! They prosecuted him enough). His better devil is HH. In a nutshell, as things stand, whether RB or not; whether Nevers or not, the nation has already decided for HH. Its a given. If anyone is failing to assess the mood, then you have chosen not to. A pity PF are now using mathemetics (Eastern, Northern) to assess their chances. It never works that way guys; even in league football, you have to rely on your own game plan to win and not if Malawi fails to score, then Zambia has a chance….

    10:4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

    10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

    10:6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.

    10:7 You are looking only on the surface of things. If anyone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as he. AMEN!

    But it is good news because RB thought he was above the law. The respect RB acquired was ONLY due to the graceful manner he stepped down after losing to Sata. Now he has blown it big time, and the damage is irreversible.

    This whole thing has the makings of big league soccer. RB has been dribbled, just like he was dribbled in 2011. There’s so much fear of an RB return in the country. This is the only time when the cartel and the Sata team had the same objective to achieve, to stop RB at all costs. Immediately this case went to the Supreme Court, it was a foregone conclusion that RB was going to lose. The bench is made of Sata appointees with Acting CJ being numero uno. These guys fear an RB return so much that they had to use Nevers to stop RB. Did Nevers think he had a case? C’mon, Nevers cannot win this election let alone the 2016 one. He was just a pawn to use. I feel sorry for RB who has been dribbled yet again. Will January 20th bring hope for Zambia? I am praying so.

      Oh poor reasoning – the ruling is about who is the true representative of the party. It is not about who will win on behalf of MMD. If your RB is as great as you put it. Why did he abandon MMD after losing. He cried and left without proper handing over. Now you want to make him a saint. I would not trust an old man who does not respect his own party constitution to rule the country. Fine Mumba will lose but will that make Zambia a better place? Also your so called big man should have read the situation – how could he listen to Muhabi. This boy is always a loser besides his good oratory gift.

    Justice justice justice has prevailed! RB can go to hell 4 all we care with Muhabi Lungu and Kaingu. Nevers must now deal with the indisplined bunch, RB, Kaingu, Simbao, Chituwo, Faustina Sinyangwe and the rest of the rot. These grossly indisciplined thugs must be expelled from the MMD before he files his nomination if he intends to stand. Better to have by-elections in the constituencies of these useless traitors than to extend an olive branch. Infact he should not only expel them but should even ensure that should those thugs recontest on any ticket that he should back another party with a strong candidate to make sure that we never see the likes of Kaingu, Chituwo, Simbao in parliament ever! I stated in my previous post that RB is cursed until he goes to Nevers for forgiveness.

      Nevers is the one doomed because he has done what is called “Tukafilila mu nsenga” meaning if he, Nevers can’t be president in MMD, nobody will. He is vindictive. Nevers has no love for MMD whatsoever because if he did, he would have rather seen MMD rise to presidency via RB than have MMD not rule at all. Nevers knows he does not stand a chance in 2015. I am reminded of the story in the bible about the story of Solomon as judge over the two women who were fighting over a baby. When Solomon suggested that he divides the baby in half (which meant the baby would die), the real mother of the baby cried that the baby be given to the other woman than see him die. So where’s christianity in what Nevers has done and where’s love for MMD?

    What a shame for ‘Justice’! Mumba Malila who wrote this ‘judgment’ was just settling personal scores with RB. Malila hated RB when he refused to renew his contract as Attorney-General apparently on the advice of then Vice President late George Kunda who viewed Malila as PF, something that turned out to be correct. When the contract was not renewed, Malila asked RB to appoint him High Court Judge which RB again on Kunda’s advice turned down and instead offered him High Commissionership to India. Malila turned this down and remained effectively unemployed until PF won. Read carefully this judgment. It is all about revenge. Don’t wee have a precedent from the the Supreme Court holding that political parties are ‘clubs’ entitled to determine their rules and practices? Wake up…

    As the topography of Zambia’s political landscape gets clearer, the forebodings for EL’s political prospects are turning nastier and uglier. For very good reasons, the wise Easterners are likely to tell their beloved son to take this thing (PF) back to where he found it. Here is why: PF is staunchly Bemba. It even stinks Bemba. Rebranding PF may not be a bad idea. However, that could both take time and fatal at the same time!

    EL’s third option would be for him to seek adoption by the Northerners. But that, for one who has just been mercilessly scratching one of their own to the extend it is now an ICU case, could turn out to be not so welcome an idea. Beyond this, I can only wish both EL and PF a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous happy New Year!

    The heading of this article is not correct. The Supreme court has ruled that Nevers Mumba is MMD President. The issue of who stands as MMD president cannot be decided by the courts, it is a party affair. The party in this case chose RB. If Nevers disputes this, he has to call for the NEC meeting so that they can endorse him. Thats where the problem is. He needs some days to make this possible, meanwhile the nominations are this saturday. So what gives? This is the time Nevers needs to use his pastoral clothes to bring this case to a conclusion. Otherwise come Saturday MMD may not have a candidate. Thats how serious it is. So bene Nevers should not celebrate yet and neither should the RB team think they have lost. This is the time MMD should have cool heads. The courts should not mess MMD.

    Lungu must just as well stop drinking kachasu and start thinking hard right now. Otherwise PF is headed for the dustbin. If anything, Nevers Mumba has just proved that he is a seriously-minded political contender. But for him, Mumba, to be able to salvage his political career, he must make MMD reassert its position in Luapula, Northern and Muchinga Provinces, besides Copperbelt. However, to do that, it must have to up-root PF from its current base.

    This court judgment seems to suggests that, MMD is a dying horse in Eastern Province and a sick man of Zambian politics elsewhere in the country. Hence the reason the party needs a new base. However, for a party, already limping, this will not come easy. Slaying and displacing PF, though a hard fact, is the quick way out.

    Even voters will be foolish to vote for a president where even party members dont know who their rightful candidate is. there is no big difference between PF and MMd except PF issues are worse and more childish if not senseless. Wonder what type of voters they will have. Even Chipimo is more mature than these headless thugs

    Hon Gary Nkombo used the word “*******” in Parliament this week; I wonder what the Speaker will do about it or is it a case of supporting a tribesman. This is what UPND is about – tribalism

    If i were a dog i would wag my tail in celebrating justice done to Nevers Mumba and democracy in Zambia.Muhabi and RB belong to yester-century politics and should be thrown far away from Zambian politics.I dont think Nevers can win next month but it is his right to stand and not Banda.Frankly,i think HH is taking this one.GOD BLESS ZAMBIA.

    A COURT CANNOT CHOOSE A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.
    SO, RB CAN STILL STAND.
    THE MMD NEC CANNOT BE FORCED TO ISSUE NEVERS A CERTIFICATE OF ENDORSEMENT!
    CHECKMATE!!

    Thnak you Jesus!! At least now I have a candidate to vote for. Edgar is a drunkard surrounded by thieves while HH is a masonist. Thank you Jesus because Nevers is God fearing and he is the only president who can steer this Christian nation forward. To God be all the glory. Amen!!

    I think the most important part of the case is justice. Regardless of the outcome of the presidential by elections, we can have faith in our judiciary system. This goes to the pending cases in PF and other parties. We are not calling for anointed ones or relatives in the adoption but people must respect the law and the process.

    Zambians, please do not be emotional but think and vote wisely. If some people can push themselves for power how are we to trust them with the nation that is vulnerable both economically and politically. Please let us scritunize some of these candidates…… May the Lord bless Zambia.

    I agree with you Elijah. I have a relief too. I was confused as to who I should vote for, becoz I rely wanted a man of God this time to rule. Go Nevers, go

    Political parties are entitled to decide who contests elections, not judges. Judges cannot also be members or officials of political parties. This is a political judgment. The judge who penned the judgment has an axe to grind. Let judges stay free of politics as has always been the case.

    Following this ruling I am certainly not voting MMD now, I cannot waste my vote on Nevers Mumba for sure, so it has to go somewhere because I must exercise my right to vote. But then not so sure about UPND either.
    I have always considered PF rather obnoxious, perhaps because of one person, Michael Sata and his behaviour. Now it looks more likely that I will put my vote on EL, he is certainly a better devil than Mmembe’s Michael. And I particularly like the way he is standing up to that Guy.
