The Supreme court has dismissed an application by UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba in which they sought to halt the inauguration of President Edgar Lungu.

Supreme Court Justice Nigel Mutuna before whom the application was heard this morning at 10:30 Hours read out a ruling in chambers in which he said decisions made by the Constitutional Court cannot be reversed by the Supreme Court.

He also said a single judge of Supreme Court has no jurisdiction to grant an injunction but only the full bench of the court.

Justice Mutuna ruled that the application is misconceived and has since been dismissed.
The petitioners appealed to the Supreme Court on Saturday, 10th September after the ruling of Judge Mwila Chitabo on Friday, 9th September.

They also applied before Justice Mutuna for the renewal of the same injunctive interim reliefs which were before judge Chitabo.

A similar application for interim reliefs before the Constitutional Court which was supposed to come up at 11:30 hours was withdrawn by the petitioners.

  1. As expected… move on and let Lungu destroy the economy. All Zambian judges have been paid handsomely. it is only the poor people who will suffer after IMF demands cuts in fuel, food subsides, and cut in all jobs including civil service.

      It is illegal, illogical and unnecessary

      Our COurts in our country are tainted beyond a reasonable doubt.

      HH won the election, Lungu and his cohorts stole the vote- why wont the courts give caesar what belongs to caesar

      I will NEVER TRUST a LAWYER

      They can kiss my backside where the sun doesnt shine

      =======================
      The game ended at Mulungushi Conference Center. All this was shear wastage of time. We gave HH enough rope to hung himself. There being no more rope, kwamana basa, please try the international court. To all the aggrieved please wait until 2021.

    • Like someone has already suggested, let UPND present their evidence to the world using another forum. Counting on the courts in Zambia is futile at this stage. Create a documentary and make it run on independent media in Zambia, such as Prime Television News, online Zambian news outlets, and put a copy on YouTube. I suggest you give it this title: “Evidence that PF rigged the Presidential election in Zambia.”Also submit a report to African Union. Let the people see the evidence for themselves and make a judgement. Don’t worry that there’ll be an inauguration tomorrow. Remember, truth will always triumph over falsehood. What is illegal is illegal, and not even an inauguration can make it legal. Remember, Zambia being a Christian nation, God knows too what really happened, and He’s a…

    • (Continued)…God of justice. Some people keep saying, let go, just let go. But do you understand how much damage that’s going to do to the country? What if UPND is after all right that they won the election? What if they have watertight evidence that they won? Because so far, their case has not been heard by anyone, which in itself is a violation of their rights and the rights of Zambians who voted for them. A thief is a thief whether it’s a political party stealing an election victory, or a guy stealing an orange at a market place. And letting a thief get away with stolen goods only emboldens him to steal some more. If it’s true that the election was rigged, what guarantee is there that the same thing will not be repeated five years from now, and even beyond that?That’ll mean…

    • (Continued)… we’re back to a one party state. And see how well that has worked across Africa. There’s no problem with PF winning the election. That’s fine. If the majority of Zambians choose to elect them, that’s great. But it has to be LEGAL. PF has to obey the rule of law like everyone else. Nobody should be above the law. So if it’s true that they rigged the election, then they broke the law, and should be exposed to the world and held accountable.

  2. HH nad GBM you have done your best; hats off guys. Leave the PF and stand aside and watch. You have used all possible avenues but failed to get the law to work.
    Another 5 years with PF is not going to be easy. We all know that. Zambian health service will be the same, schools will still be over crowded with minumum teaching and minumum learning as some pupils will carry on going to basic schools – which works under a system of half day school and half day homework if any at all

    • @Thorn in the flesh…Here are some facts associated with your “Christian” ECL. Since January 2015 when ECL took office, the Kwacha has been devalued by half, inflation shot from 7% in January 2015 to 20% today (2016) even as we speak. In January 2015, ECL declared that he had K10.9 million in assets, only to declare that he had K23.7million in assets 15 months later. He has never explained where the K13million in assets came from in 15 months. His ministers and deputies were recently ordered by the ConCourt to vacate the offices they were occupying illegally after the dissolution of parliament. They were also ordered to pay back the salaries and allowances they had illegally obtained. And remember they were doing all these illegal stuff with ECL’s full knowledge. And also remember…

    • (Continued)… that this is YOUR money as a taxpayer that these ministers were illegally getting. Recently, Sweden and Finland asked to have their money back that was donated to ZNFU. K34million that was meant to help poor Zambian farmers, someone in Zambia pocketed it with impunity, forcing these two countries to intervene, and rightly so. Load shedding is back with no foreseeable solution in sight. Lastly, if you know how to google, google this: “Third hungriest country in the world.” Right now Zambia is holding that spot. So the future looks quiet bleak, with this guy you’re calling a Christian. Unless you’re one of the few in the upper echelon of his regime, you need to be worried about the coming years. With the coming of IMF and their austerity measures, you better punch…

    Ths discourse UPND hv persuaded to realise their rights by th multiplicity of court applications concurrently in th Courts of Law leaves much to be desired on th UPND Legal Team’s expertise & resultantly one wonders what legal counsel tht hv ben rendering to their client.

MR H.H WITH DUE RESPECT YOUR CHANCES TO BE A ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT IS NOW FINALLY OVER AND AS FOR MR GBM A PERSON WHO BEATS UP HIS WIFEWIFE AND OTHERS CAN NEVER BE A PRESIDENT.ZAMBIA NEEDS A SOBER PERSON TO BE A PRESIDENT.LATE MR M.C SATA SIR YOUR LEGACY IS VERY MUCH ALIVE AS HIS EXCELLENCY ECL WILL KEEP YOUR DREAM ALIVE BY DEVELOPING ZAMBIA AND PUTTING MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS OF AN AVERAGE ZAMBIAN CITIZEN.MAY GOD BLESS ZAMBIA AND BLESS THE NEW 6TH…

  22. HH says ECZ and CHULU rigged the elections. ” THE TRUTH BEHIND THIS”

    The truth is that ECZ did not announce the results in LUSAKA which made it difficult for HH and his team to rig in his stronghold. If LUSAKA figures had been communicated before HH stronghold, then you would have been shocked that votes from the three provinces would have given him victory. That is why he condemns Chulu and ECZ. SATA won Copperbelt, Lusaka and most of the provinces aganist Mwanawasa but the results from rural western, southern and north-western gave Mwanawasa victory. NEXT ELECTIONs LET RESULTS IN STRONGHOLDS OF MAIN CONTENDERS BE THE FIRST TO ANNOUNCE.

    ConCourt “decision”? But there was no decision by this constitutioal court. They didn’t even hear the case.

    By the way I reckon supreme court and concourt judges should never be sitting alone and determining cases of this magnitude. Rather a full bench should be called upon to hear such cases.

    • How do you allow politics to divide you?

      Politics is partly a process to choose leaders. Why should this divide you? As a people, you must have gone to the polls pre-personally-divided.

      I have voted a few times in Zambia with friends and family on different political party tickets, the results were out; at times the party I voted for lost and at times my friends preferred parties lost. The decent thing is that we remained friends and family, across tribes.

      This is politics. Get on with your own lives and be kind to those around you.

      I hope none of you were banking your hopes on getting jobs from Presidential Candidates for your votes, as I told my own biological brother not to putting his hope in politicians, but to be creative and hardworking.

    HH became friends with Membe, the mortal enemy of Mutuna.

  42. UPND, it would seem, mistook business acumen for political acumen. The two are not synonymous. Mr. Hichilema, a business guru in his own right, may now have to rethink his political career. In my humble opinion, his error was chiefly a failure at political innovation. Considering his level of political investment, he needed more his brains, not his money. It would seem he had it the other way round – throwing money, more money at a dysfunctional political apparatus, in hope it would see it and awake out of slumber. It didn’t. A little bit of political innovation could have saved him a bundle of cash as well as a basket of heartaches. As it is, this one seems to be ending the way many others in his past ended – a spirited goose chase that ends in oblivion.

    If HH was nothing politicaly, these personalities were not going to look stupid in their won professional careers practice!

      Keen Follower, that notwithstanding, a loss is still a loss. For all that he has taught you and what you have learnt from this experience, HH has only managed to teach thieves how to steal better and smarter the next time around.

    PF supporters are boring to say the list. Before you accuse HH & GBM not knowing their limits, have you checked ECL, how he used ECZ, public funds, etc or its just that PF supporters think in reverse!

  48. Mr. President, Congratulations for 5 more years. Sir, I beg you in the name of begging, please make the door open for HH. I think he can make a very good minister. Especially in ministry which has to do with ng’ombe. If invited to work with you, I think he will be willing to do that. Please again, in the name of begging consider him. Thanks.

  49. My suggestion is let HH accept minister of finance position and see if can improve anything. If he does then he will have a chance to be sponsored Pf presidential candidate in 2021 and we will campaign for him simple. That’s how politics is played not the tribal way. Let him leave nkombo Sampa sata shinono Scott Mumba to continue losing with upnd. If you agree with suggestion press green

  52. ZAMBIA IS A DIRTY COUNTRY. MOST ZAMBIANS ARE DIRTY-MINDED. CORRUPTION AND BRIBED HAS DESTROYED THE MORAL FABRICS OF THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. SHAME ON ZAMBIA TO INAUGURATE A THIEF KNOWN BY THE WHOLE WORLD TO HAVE STOLEN VOTES AND POWER FROM HH AND THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. ZAMBIA IS STINKING AND HAS GONE ONCE AGAIN TO DOGS.
