The Presidential petition against the re-election of President Edgar Lungu continues tomorrow.

The lawyers representing the Patriotic Front and United Party for National Development left the court premises after being engaged for more than two hours in the chambers.

Lawyers engaged by journalists after the court session declined to comment on the proceedings which are scheduled to proceed tomorrow.

However, PF Lawyer Sakwiba Sikota, assured journalists that the case will proceed tomorrow.

President-elect Edgar Chagwa Lungu is being represented by Eric Silwamba and company, Bonaventure Mutale, Professor Patrick Mvunga and Sakwiba Sikota of central chambers.

  1. Sakwiba seems to be an expert in Presidential petitions having represented Mazoka in 2001 election petition against Mwanawasa. Also Silwamba and Malambo both represented Chiluba in that high profile parentage case where Chiluba was dragged to court for allegedly having a Congolese father. Prof Mvunga was on the other side of the legal team. Free history legal lessons

    • Yes, they earned hefty legal fees just like the way they will after Horny Harlot and Great Bag of Manure lose their case

    • Holding proceedings in the dark leaves it to the imagination to know how they are faring. They could all be performing brilliantly or all actually looking like unprepared interns.

      Tomorrow should be the first glimmer of light, if they make a key decision concerning who holds the reins while we wait.

    • Actually, we know that the issue of the court taking custody of election materials has been adjourned to Wed at 14:30. The issue of UPND amending their main petition will be argued in court tomorrow at 08:30. I foresee this case being constitutionally time-barred because they can’t finish by Thursday evening – by which it should have been concluded. ECL will likely be inaugurated on Friday 09/09/2016.

  3. The lawyers engaged declined to comment…Yep, sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. But don’t keep us in the dark for too long….because not to know is bad, not to wish to know is worse!

  4. I will not accept results if I lose. Did HH knew before hand that elections will be rigged? How possible is that 37000 voters can finish voting earlier than constituency with 5000 voters.? Didnt the violence in southern disadvantage the performance of other parties? It is a wait and see situation. The Goncourt should quickly finish because our leaders will start going to ICC

  8. It was great fun watching 7 provinces erupt into a frenzy of wild celebrations when ECL was declared winner a fortnight ago. I guess PART II will be even bigger next week.

  9. The sad part this court case is that UPND is not thinking of the country and the time they are wasting I just hope and pray they UPND lose with costs. Enough of this rubbishy

  10. IN BEMBA THEY SAY “ICILANDUSHI”. MEANING VENGEANCE. MR HH IS FULL OF VENGEANCE. A BITTER MAN. HE CANNOT SEE ECL BEAT HIM TWICE. LAST TIME ECL CAMPAIGNED FOR ONLY 21 DAYS AND HE THUMPED HH, A VETERAN OF SEVERAL LOSES. PEOPLE SHOULD REMEMBER THAT EVEN THEN, HH CRIED “RIGGING”. SO THIS IS NOT NEW. IT IS ONLY THAT THIS TIME ROUND HH WAS TOO OVER CONFIDENT. ONLY TO BE HUMILIATED BY A POOR LAWYER ONCE AGAIN. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT HE HAS NOT JUST HIRED LAWYERS, BUT HE HAS HIRED LAW FIRMS. NOW THAT CAN ONLY BE DONE WHEN YOU KNOW THAT YOUR CAUSE IS UNFOUNDED.

    SOME NEW TERMINOLOGY HAS EMERGED NOW:

    DUNUNOLOGY = THE STUDY OF DUNUNA
    DUNUNIST = SOMEONE WHO DUNUNAS ANOTHER PERSON
    DUNUNITIS = DISEASE CAUSED BY BEING DUNUNAD
    DUNUNOPHILIA = TENDENCY TO ALWAYS FALL VICTIM OF…

  11. (continued)
    DUNUNOPHOBIA = DISLIKE FOR BEING DUNUNAD
    NEURO-PSYCHO-DUNUNITIS = A SEVERE MENTAL DISORDER CAUSED BY BEING DUNUNAD
