Lawyers working on the presidential petition leaving the Supreme Court
Lawyers working on the presidential petition leaving the Supreme Court

The Constitutional Court has thrown 53 of the 80 grounds of the case following preliminary motion raised by President Edgar Lungu’s lawyers on Wednesday, that requested that the grounds of the Petition were irregular and were outside the Jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions of Article 128 and Act no 8 of the 2016 Constitutional.

The lawyers also demanded that the Petition be dismissed as it was filed under wrong articles of the Constitution.

The ConCourt struck out from the record 53 portions of the Petition for want of jurisdiction and for being irregular.

Earlier,President Lungu requested the Constitutional Court to dismiss Hakainde Hichilema’s electoral petition for lack of evidence and merit.

In papers filed by his lawyers as preliminary issues, President Lungu had requested that the Petition be dismissed for relying on wrong articles of the Constitution and for lacking merit.

The lawyers have also requested the Court to remove from the records various portions from the UPND petition which they contend were wrongly and irregularly included in the Petition.

These irregularities range from matters filed, but are deemed to be above or are outside the jurisdiction of the Concourt, to petitioning under a wrong article 103 instead of 101.

Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba of the United Party for National Development (UPND) have petitioned the re-election of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and his running mate, Vice-President, Mrs.Inonge Mutukwa Wina.

Following the successful holding of the 2016 General Election, the Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ) declared President Edgar Lungu as winner of the Poll obtaining 50.35% (1,860,877) with Hichilema obtaining 47% 1,760,347.

President Edgar Lungu’s Patriotic Front (PF) obtained 85 seats while the UPND obtained 55 seats.

President Lungu also won 7 Provinces (Copperbelt, Lusaka, Luapula, Northern, Muchinga, Eastern and Central Province) while Hichilema won 3 provinces (Southern, Western and North-Western).

The matter has been adjourned to Friday 26th August 2016 at 11hrs.

    • @ Saulos: In clear contempt of court, ZNBC has aired falsehoods that the constitutional court has thrown out 52 grounds of the presidential petition.

      The truth is that the court did not make any ruling today even in the preliminary issues raised by Edgar Lungu through his lawyers.

      Lungu’s lawyers yesterday raised some issues to which the UPND lawyers have not responded so how can the judge make a ruling?

      It looks like the news aired on ZNBC was written in advance by Frank Bwalya and other PF officials even before the court sat in the morning.
      The Watchdog understands that UPND lawyers may pursue ZNBC and others for contempt of court.

ZAMBIANS WANT DEVELOPMENT OLD DEVELOPMENT PLANS IMPLEMENTATIONS FINISHED AND NEW ONES STARTED. NOT LISTENING TO CRY FAT AND NAPPY BABIES CRYING. THEY SHOULD STAND ASIDE SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT STARTS SPENDING MORE TIME ON DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS RATHER THAN WASTING IT ON FAT AND NAPPY ONES.

    • Talked to a friend at supreme court. She confirmed that UPND lawyers were panicking as they have filed the petition under Article 103 and not the correct one that applies for first ballot. This is the major hurdle that UPND is going to face and the whole petition might be thrown out on technicalities.

    • Confirmed:ZNBC editors face contempt of court proceedings

      August 25, 20163

      The UPND legal team has commenced contempt proceedings against ZNBC Director General Richard Mwanza, Assignments editor Kennedy Bwalya and reporter Hannock Kasama for published a false story that the Constitutional Court had struck out some grounds in the petition when no such decision was made by the court.
      Lawyers close to the case told said that the lawyers would apply to the court that the three be cited for contempt of court for publishing a false story aimed at influencing the court and misleading the public over the petition.
      There is heightened desperation within the Patriotic Front ranks over the petition and they have since engage some discredited reporters like former Post correspondent…

      “Emmanuel Mwamba is working with this group of reporters to mislead the public over the proceedings of the petition.
      “Muvi TV and other stations were deliberately closed so that the public doesn’t really know what is happening. They are trying to create an impression that the petition has already failed in the mind of Zambians as they try hard to get their own favourable judges to decide on this landmark case, ” said a source in the PF.
      According to the source there will be a lot of fake stories about the petition just to deceive the Zambia people.

    • “President Lungu also won 7 Provinces (Copperbelt, Lusaka, Luapula, Northern, Muchinga, Eastern and Central Province) while Hichilema won 3 provinces (Southern, Western and North-Western).”

      Why does PF always want to claim popularity in Central Province when they have been beaten twice:

      2016–UPND=177,854 Votes PF=138,517 difference about 40,000 votes?
      2015–UPND=about 60,000 votes PF=about 50,000 difference about 10,000 votes?

      In fact Muchinga & Northern are one Province cos the Population has remained same even after splitting.

      After all what matters is winning more votes than yo opponent regardless of number of Provinces won i.e. if one province gives u 3,000,000 votes & yo opponent gets 400,000 votes from each of 7 provinces he gets combined 2,800,000 votes, u still…

      You say ECL had ONLY 1,860,877,
      And you say HH had AS MUCH AS 1,760,347.
      Your eyes are seeing stars; to you 1,860,877 is smaller than 1,760,347.
      My, my, my!! You are the people who throw part saying “I almost passed”, and start laughing at someone who had a credit, saying ” he is dull he couldn’t manage a merit or distinction”, yet in your case you actually failed.

  8. The people of of Zambia freely and willingly voted for President Lungu and gave him the 5 years fresh mandate to preside over the National affairs by overwhelmingly getting over 50%+1 votes as required by the Supreme law (constitution) so Kachema and his UPND are just wasting the country’s time and resources.
    We got a lot of work to do, to develop and transform Mother Zambia for prosperity under HE ECL.

    • PROFESSOR MVUNGA: CALLS FOR PRESIDENT LUNGU TO STAND DOWN ARE LEGALLY FLAWED? NOT AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      By Peter Sinkamba

      My elder brother, Professor Patrick Mvunga SC, whom I served with on the Mwanakatwe Constitutional Review Commission almost 23 years ago, argues that its wishful thinking for any individual to suggest that the President must step down because there is an election petition in court. He says there is nowhere in the Zambian Constitution where it says a Head of State must step down whenever there is an election petition against his elections after winning elections in the first round.

      I am one of the many citizens that strongly believe that following the enactment of the Constitution of Zambia of 2016, an incumbent Head of State must step whenever there is an…

After Lungu got that it means that in other provinces even if he got 12 and HH 10 Lungu carried the day. You can’t go to a football match and say that even if it was 5 -4 against me I still won the World Cup. The one that got 5 gets the Cup.

The ministers stay was ruled upon they were asked to repay every cent, you think the court will re-open a matter it has ruled on already? Your 14 man team should ensured the former minister are held accountable and pay back. Lastly the Gen 12 are now in court custody on an application from team Mushipe…perhaps the argument is that UPnd did not get copies mwah…oh and lets not forget one former minister is now facing charges of aggravated robbery to rob an ECZ van of the Gen 12 you can go help in his matter now that ‘one act’ will lock him up for a long long time…mukose

In France people realized too late that a monster had been created by their acquiescence. Some of you are delighted by the events following the electoral fraud because you feel invincible. Do not please forget that Kaunda Kenneth Buchizya also felt invincible in the early 1980s. His downfall was cataclysmic. PF’s downfall will not be any different.

Pompous and depreciated politicians such as Nevers Mumba, GBM, Guy Scott, Mulenga Sata, Masebo, Maureen Mwanawasa are just finishing HH. Its good that HH allowed them to mess him up. HH would not have pertitioned the elections. All he needed to do was to concede defeat, sing ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION and continue providing checks and balances so that in 2021 he stands another chance. Its a pity that time has catch up with him and he will never be president of this great nation. Pomposity does not take any where

  30. Quality rather than quantity means everything in our society. ECL and the PD put up a well packaged campaign message which resonated very well with the voters and no wonder Zambians from all walks of life turned in huge numbers to reaffirm President Lungu as the man they trust with National Affairs and gave him a resounding Yes victory of over 50%+1. Whilst the Under 5 thought he would ryn before walking overrated himself, and insulted the intelligent of Zambians, ECL focused on the development he had achieved despite the global economic meltdown. It is on record that this HH saw and sensed defeat well before the voting day hence his constant threats that he would not accept defeat. Concourt, please throw the remaining 27 grounds because there is no quality but quantity, remember the 14…

    • HH was over confident of winning because of the rigging scheme that VJ had helped him come up with in his strongholds. And had it not been for this rigging ECL could have won by more than 60%. This is the reason why people in other provinces are not demonstrating because they know that the person they voted for (ECL) has won – All monitors have confirmed that and the ConCourt will simply put icing on the cake in a few days from now!!!!

  31. Enlightenment entails to radically reorient ones reasoning from basic which is actually primitive to one based on information and reason. The problem we have in Zambia is that most of the people are not yet enlightened and as such they don’t attach reason to their lives; just like tree branches that bend in the direction the wind is blowing. Until we embrace reason through enlightenment we shall continue having mediocre leaders like Edgar who base their rule on ignorance of the masses. Even with his necked dictatorial tendencies the unenlightened wouldn’t see the potential danger he possesses.

Why has the International Observers who spent millions of dollars to monitor our elections congratulate President Lungu on his re-election? Surely, HH and the cartel must not misuse and waste our time and that of the Concourt because when tempers rise, the people who have legitimately given President Lungu and PF the fresh mandate may erupt and no one wants to see their wrath, go on the ground and see how popular Lungu is!

The process that is unfolding, is still a part of the democracy of our country. The expressions of “love one” and”hate the other” being expressed either side are quite intriguing. Either way, one of the two Zambian men, ECL or HH will be president of the country and we must all be patient for finalization of the court ruling and support the winner 100%. And when people vote, they need to be ready for a win or loose result of their candidate. The country cannot be so divided on this matter as if it is football. Let love for one and the other Zambian be of supreme value than anything else. God bless Zambia

  38. PROFESSOR MVUNGA: CALLS FOR PRESIDENT LUNGU TO STAND DOWN ARE LEGALLY FLAWED? NOT AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Peter Sinkamba

    My elder brother, Professor Patrick Mvunga SC, whom I served with on the Mwanakatwe Constitutional Review Commission almost 23 years ago, argues that its wishful thinking for any individual to suggest that the President must step down because there is an election petition in court. He says there is nowhere in the Zambian Constitution where it says a Head of State must step down whenever there is an election petition against his elections after winning elections in the first round.

    I am one of the many citizens that strongly believe that following the enactment of the Constitution of Zambia of 2016, an incumbent Head of State must step whenever there is an…

    He has illigally used ministers and public funds to campain for him, he has used ZP to oppress and arrest the opposition, he has used ZRA and IBA to shut down or threaten media houses that oppose him.

    My understanding; Under Article 103, the Constitution envisages that any of the two candidates can file a petition. Remember that before the inauguration or swearing into office, Lungu can be both President-elect as declared by the chairman of the electrol commission under Article 101 and incumbent. HH can only be a President-elect before the inauguration. Article 104(3) then refers back to the Petition under Article 103, i.e. to say that where the President-elect is also the incumbent (who can only be Lungu in this circumstance), the speaker will assume the executive functions while the case is before the court. Incumbent is the one who has held the political office being contested.

PF raised peoples expectation that they would white-wash UPND. Clearly they didn’t, which is very disappointing because they shouted a TKO during campaigns. Had they won convincingly the President-elect would now have been sworn in. But alas talk is easy, walking the talk is another matter altogether. My only worry is that Zed finds itself in a limbo. This compounded by the new constitution or seemingly lack of understanding thereof. I hope ECL’s continued occupation of the presidency stands on solid advice. It will be grossly embarrassing if again the Courts find that it is illegal.

  66. At the moment HH is not a President-elect. Lungu is, as declared by the returning officer. But since there is now a petition, Lungu cannot be declared President yet. He is thus the incumbent and President-elect. Under Article 104(3), the Speaker assumes executive functions where the petition under Article 103 is against the President who is both President-elect and incumbent. HH would be President-elect if he had been declared as such, but would not be the incumbent if Lungu decided to petition the declaration. I can only imagine that the idea of having the speaker stand in was to avoid the incumbent (who already has the state machinery at his/her disposal from simply going ahead with his inauguration and exercising executive powers with impunity)

This notwithstanding that they completely attempted to black out their opponents as you, me and everyone else knows. They should not have given UPND room to challenge the results if they had won big. Clearly they didn’t. The challengers now think (and rightly so given the margins) they can erase the 3% if they can prove the irregularities. What you call the majority i.e. 50.3% against 49.7% is just too close. Do you now get my point? PF should have won convincingly – reference point, Museveni in Uganda.

Coming back to the accusation of stealing results. The fact that an error has been spotted and accepted by the ECZ shows that PF might have tempered with the votes.

    In politics, the one with most connections, who is able to create very sweet lies, one who is able to deceive even the seemingly wise, emerges as a victor. In as much as Mr. Lungu has managed to deceive most Zambians especially by going from church to church pretending to want to worship God, Mr. HH has managed to make Tongas and their tribal cousins not to want to do anything with other tribes.
