The Supreme Court has nullified the election of MMD SENGA HILL Member of Parliament KAPEMBWA SIMBAO.

The Supreme Court over turned a High Court ruling that declared Mr SIMBAO as duly elected MP for SENGA HILL.

Delivering Judgment on behalf of other Supreme Court, Judge GREGORY PHIRI nullified Mr SIMBAO on grounds that there was a number of electoral malpractices.

Among the panel of judges that sat to deliver judgment in the matter were GREGORY PHIRI, EVANS HAMAUNDU, FLORENCE LENGALENGA MUNYINDA WANKIE and Deputy Chief Justice, MARVIN MWANAMWAMBWA,.

Mr SIMBAO from the MMD was elected MP for Senga Hill in 2011 but Patriotic Front-PF losing candidate GILES CHOMBA YAMBAYAMBA petitioned the election of Mr SIMBAO.

Mr. YAMBAYAMBA contended that the election was characterized by widespread undue influence, bribery, intimidation, voter treating and electoral malpractices.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia in mandated by law to hold a parliamentary by-election within ninty days of the seat falling vacant.

      Let me hope ZWD shows my comments. Kariba dam is jointly owned. What happens if it is not repaired and water gushes out to the valley and land, animals and humans are submerged? Whether one likes it or not, Zambia has to protect is citizens, resources and ensure continuous generation of electricity. There are ways of recovering the money through buying off power from Zimbabwe at concessional price and recovering loan share over time. Since I do not trust ZWD to show my comments, I am going to put the same comments on Zambia Reports and Lusaka Times as well.

      Is ZWD propagating ‘Self destruction’ or annihilation of inhabitants of southern and central provinces? Is Mutati really a learned person? Is he a patriotic Zambian?

      Two more by-elections. One was inevitable but Simbao’s is unecessary. This is becoming old and stale. Surely it took 3 years for these people to finally nullify that seat? The electorate will choose a representative now and then do it again a few months later. Who is paying for this party? I will remember to keep a pasted smile on my face at all times for fear of crying when I go out in public.

      The Michael Sata ldiocy legacy continues! When the fcuk are Zambians going to get tired of induced by-elections. Lungu said he was going to continue with Sata’s legacy – he was right.

      Friends, please bear with me. I am posting my comments that I submitted to ZWD in response to Mr. Mutati’s views on Kariba North borrowing. “Let me hope ZWD shows my comments.

      @Chris
      The buying off is what we should have been reading about, right now NOT borrowing for who-knows-what and for whom. The buying off is what should have been put forth in the first place NOT this borrowing nonsense. Is it not Zimbabwe that, a few years ago, refused to pay what she owed Zambia?
      The reasons you are putting forth (e.g. endangering Zambian lives, failing to honor their part of responsibility) are what our government should have been tabling to persuade Zimbabwe to start selling parts of the joint enterprise to Zambia or some other private investor. If you ask me, Zambia should have been threatening to take Zimbabwe to international courts…NOT paying Zimbabwe! And how on earth do you borrow money on behalf of someone else? You’re the borrower: kwasila!

    Let it be if indeed its coming from the courts of law. Its a lesson to all parties that if they use corruption to get to Parliament their seats will be nullified. Well done judges.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

    This is does not make sense. The current parliament has less than 17 mnths. What happens to simbao’s sitting in parly illegally for over three years. We need a court that will be settling these issues before mps are sworn in.

    The wise thing to do is put in place good governance mechanisms to deter, detect and to respond on time when issues are reported. This current system of crises management is just a waste of resources. Am pretty sure the new constitution should address these issues. Zambia needs to be prudent with its scanty resources.

    Useless state of affairs. Everything is past tense. Most things are overtaken by events in this country. What a mess! Will this guy pay back what he has been paid in remuneration for ‘masquerading’ as duly elected over these years? I suppose all he has to do is jump over the fence and he will win on a new party ticket like they have been doing. How nauseating!

    Ah. Sorry for him, but that’s democracy, there must be transparency and fairness.

    PF can win this if all those registered voters bother to get out that day. I think we should be sending the ‘youth’ out into the communities on voting days to shoo, the people to voting duty.

    Apathy is just another word for, ‘don’t know the importance of voting.’ People must face criminal charges for not voting. It messes the country’s democratic processes and there is a danger of ‘wrong gov’t’ leading the country.

      @ Patriotic Abroad, you are such a nut, a chimp might even beat you at analytical thinking…Voting is a right, and what azzholes wont tell you is a right has what is referred to as “Duality Characteristic”, meaning, in as much as you have a right to vote, you also have a right not to, as an independent individual, for example if you have no confidence in the electoral process system, you have a right not to vote…but because government schools you went to cant teach you this, coupled with greedy azzholes like Shrek Neckless Kambwili, idyots like you only know one side of your rights,

      Just continue shelving vegetables in shops abroad and washing ****** for those elderly .azzhole

      Listen @nincompoop

      Voting is a duty of every citizen. The right not to vote does not exist. Okay. And that’s my opinion of which I am entitled.

      Now shut it AND NO I DON’t shelve veggies nor do I wash lil ol’ ladies. I am a creative, designing and making lovely stuff. I am putting out my own brand of goodies soonest.

      You write like a rapist getting his rocks off. Respond like that again, I’m gonna have the police deal with you. Ok. Go tire so done else.

    The level of mediocrity of bloggers on this issue (except for two comments) has amazed me. Get to your tuntembas and look for money to feed your kids or siblings, whichever applies, rather than exhibiting such high levels of ignorance.

      Why don’t you go get a chill pill, pimp.

      On this forum people express their opinion NOT uniform agreement. You obviously don’t understand this forum and probably for a bully a bit tame.

      You’d be better off going to a zoo and communicate with your calibre of being….yeah the chimpanzee section.

      @ Chanda Chilengu, Forget, no amount of ridicule or reminder can work on certain group of people where reason and common sense doesn’t exist. People in Zambia only see things through a tribal lens, and this is what governs voting. Just after election, because of my name some learned bemba colleague was congratulating me for deliverring the eastern vote to ECL…Quite frankly, how can someone think like that…this is a learned guy with PhD. I told him he doesn’t have to thank me, because if had a voter’s card I wouldn’t even have voted for ECL as he aint the right guy…Very sadly, he rebuked with me names and accusing me of being UPND…lol…

      So no amount of education can change certain people and bring them close to civility..

    But don’t miss-understand me, there are really some nice Bemba people (not all are tribal), just like there are really some nice Tonga and Ngoni people who aint tribal any bit….maybe tribalism depends on how one was raised (the environment determines character, remember Charles Darwin Theory)
