The Lusaka High Court has set November 24th as hearing date for the main matter on whether the rights of UPND president Hakainde Hichilema and his vice Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba were violated when the constitutional court decided to dismiss the presidential election petition.

In this case Mr. Hichilema wants the court to rule on whether his rights as enshrined in the constitutional were not violated when he was not heard before the constitutional court judges.
Mr. Hichilema has sued President Edgar Lungu his vice Inonge Wina, the electoral commission of Zambia, the Attorney General, Chief Justice her Deputy and the Constitutional Court.

The state has however asked the court to remove the chief justice, her deputy and the constitutional court from the case.

The state has submitted that it is the attorney general who is supposed to be sued and not the two individuals in their capacity as they are occupying public office.

Mr. Hichilema wants the high court to direct the constitutional court to hear and determine the presidential petition independently, fairly and within a reasonable time.

And the constitutional court has set Friday 30 September for hearing the matter in which Mr. Hichilema has asked the court on whether it was right to swear in president Elect Edgar Lungu in the absence of the declaration that he was duly elected.

Meanwhile, Mr Hichilema says former alliance partner and United Democratic Front (UDF) president Miles Sampa is inconsistent with his life and that he is only interested in his stomach.

Mr Hichilema told journalists at Lusaka Central Prison, popularly known as Chimbokaila, in Lusaka on Wednesday that Mr Sampa does not know what he wants in his life.

    • My advice to HH and GBM is that,

      You do not obtain rights from outside of the condition of the land.

      Are you accusing the constitution of taking away your rights.

      You can only attain your rights within the confines of the constitution.

      You cannot expect you

      You cannot expect you petition to have gone beyond the 24 day timeframe.

      If that were to happen, then there would be no need for a constitution.

    • @Nez.., so if HH had won, who do you think he would have brought in instead of the IMF? You mean HH would have turned to more hungrier MINE “CAPITALIST” SHARKS like GLENCO who would hold us at worse RANSOM DEMANDS than that of IMF?

      IMF was unavoid no matter who won the elections. We can only hope the Govt will negotiate favorable conditions so the Country can weather the current economic storm. Unfortunately, some of you look at this as an opportunity to sit on the sidelines, PRAY AND HOPE, that things get worse than they already are. Sad really!

      But this is the kind of politics that turns off a lot of Zambians. And UPND sycophants like yourself doesn’t seem to have learnt your lessons. Come 2021 you will still be without taking stock what benefits such attitudes have brought…

    • @Peace of Zambia, I think you are confusing yourself. The courts are there to interpret the law, the police are there to enforce the law. There are always interpretations of the law that are skewed and biased towards a certain group or individuals, lawyers go to school specifically to be able to master this art. You cannot say that simply because the court has ruled in favour of certain individuals then that decision cannot be challenged. Thats why the law allows for appeal and some decisions overturned. The constitution is vague on the 14 days issue and the technically of the calculation of the same can be challenged. The petitioners have their human rights to be heard in the courts of law.

    • 1.6 Aha,

      The courts are not there to distribute verdicts equitably but rather justly.

      Assume a thief keeps stealing from Mr Hu, and the courts keep convicting the thief and sentencing him to prison.

      Would you say that the courts are biased because they have only been sentencing one side?

      Well if HH is going to have genuine cases with genuine evidence all the time, he will have all verdicts in his favour.

      If the opposite becomes the case, then the opposite will be the case.

      If he will have correct and genuine cases and genuine evidence half the time, then half the time verdicts will go his way.

      The same will apply for the party in government.

      Conclusion: verdicts are not allocated on an equity basis but on a legal basis.

      Yes, the petitioners have the right to heard, but within the timeframe.

      It is like you buy milk from a supermarket, and you totally ignore it until it expires then you say, but I have not drunk my milk. What has happened to my rights to food?

      Your rights to food don’t include rotten or expired food.

      You do not obtain rights from outside of the constitution of the land.

    • #1.6 Aha,

      You say interpretation of the law varies and the is why courts exist. Correct!

      You have also said if one is not pleased with a court ruling he has the right to appeal. Correct!

      I hope, with that view in mind, you support the former ministers’ quest to have a review of the ruling on their stay in office after dissolution of parliament.

      I will appeal to your objectivity as the rulings for both of two matters: the petition for HH and GBM, and the stay in office after dissolution of parliament, were made by the ConCourt.

      Thus, if I support an appeal by one group whose ruling is past by the ConCourt, I should be as unbiased as possible to accept the right of other groups to equally make similar appeals having passed through the same ConCourt.

      I thought this case was over. Why has the PF instructed the courts to hear the case again? I think Lungu was given some conditions by the US and IMF to make sure that due process is followed.

      I thought the matter was concluded and Chagwa is the illegal president period.

    • @ Peace of Zambia

      I did not refer to any distribution of verdicts. I am talking about the interpretation of the law to arrive at a certain decision by the courts of law. Our former ministers have appealed their verdict, if the quotes gave them the right to appeal, then it is so. It is simple justice to allow someone to appeal a certain court’s decision if they feel that they are not receiving justice. You can use any example you want, that will not change the fact, the petitioners have the right to be heard, regardless of whom you support in this case. The concourt final decision was a split decision meaning that even amongst the judges, the interpretation of the time aspect was different. If someone is seeking justice and they feel they have not been justly treated, they should have…

    • @ 1.15 Aha

      It must be only in Zambia where a verdict by majority rule by the bench is considered non-verdict.

      Anywhere in the world majority rule (split or not) is the same as unanimous vote.

      That looks like kangaroo law.

    • We all have individual opinions and they are a “take it or leave it” affair as no opinion is supposed to be imposed on anybody. However one can take sides on an opinion just as I do with Dr Ludwig Sondashi’s interpretation on “hearing” of the petition and the fourteen days given in which it has to be heard. The ConCourt “DID NOT” hear the petition as per Sondashi but were busy “LISTENING TO PRELIMINARY ISSUES” related hearing of the petition and then the PF lawyers said the 14 days were up! Such are reasons I curse lawyers for not being simplistic and to the point when it comes to the layman, there is something uncanny with the so called legal professionals thats why they title themselves as “LEARNED” men and women something you only find of lawyers nothing like learned…

      Breach of fundamental right does NOT have prescribed time limit in the Law.
      Please stop crapping in public and instead learn about Fundamental Rights and Freedom jurisprudence from at least 1948.

    • @ 2.2 Born Free,

      Every right has got a context within which it will apply.

      If the exercise of your right is associated with a matter that has timeframe, it will be confined to the limits applicable to that matter.

      There is no right that has open ends. Even the right to food has limits in that you don’t go to a shop and pick food to eat when you will not pay for it.

      If cought with stolen food they will stop you from eating it and you will be punished by law for stealing.

      So your right to food in that sense will be stopped by the penal code.

      So that idea of saying fundamental rights are not limited by time, is misplaced.

      So to you, what is a fundamental right?

      If you want to apply fundamental right to an election petition, and avoid articles that govern election petition, then you are a joker regardless of whether you call me crapper or not.

      You want to go and hold a political rally in a military barrak in the name of fundamental right to assemble, my friend are you not trying to be a crapper yourself?

      If you are one of the advisors of UPND it’s nowonder they are that disorganised.

      If you not able to see the disorganisation, then am wasting time trying to reason with you because you will see reasoning as crap and crap as reasoning.

      The best I can do for you is to pity you.

    • 1. Right to be heard cannot be disregarded in any circumstances. That is well established legal principle and any departure from it leaves lot to desire and sets dangerous legal principle;
      2. I do not care damn about either PF, UPND or any other party. As a mater of fact, all this organisations do not have what it takes to qualify as “political party”;
      3. Whole process of drafting and approving Act. No. 2 of 2016 it appears that has been done by the ever increasing “copy & paste” learned (lol) principle;
      4. Constitutional Court jurisdiction extends well above “election petition”. As a matter of fact, Article 128(1) clearly states: “Subject to Article 28, the Constitutional Court has original and final jurisdiction to hear-“. ORIGINAL and FINAL. Do you understand the meaning?…

    • Do you understand the meaning? ORIGINAL and FINAL;
      5. In so far, there is no “Ruling” and therefore any “finality” may exist in your brain, but, there is no finality of the “implied” determination and therefore lack of interpretation raises serious question about all legal process.
      Lastly, instead of pitying me, you better start pitying yourself in case you are denied right to be heard because of the silence by the Constitutional Court to clarify IN WRITING and with legal reasoning why, how and because of theirs multiple decisions reached without due process of law.
      Please, do not do nothing for me. Your legal reasoning in defense of the sacrifices of one of the cornerstone of fundamental rights on the pagan altar of political expediency in a “Christian” Nation says a lot…

  3. “Mr. Hichilema has sued President Edgar Lungu his vice Inonge Wina, the electoral commission of Zambia, the Attorney General, Chief Justice her Deputy and the Constitutional Court.”
    Mr. Hichilema should not have sued everyone including the chief justice. Where can he ran to when the lower courts throws out his petition because he will have to meet the same person sued in the supreme court where the final decision will not be challenged. These are some of the lessons that future petitioners will have to learn from in order to avoid entangling themselves.
    Lets wait and see where this will end.

    Aba bantu they have too much wax in their ears mwe. You can toko, toko, and toko (like grandpa Grey Zulu would say) and they will not hear. Edgar Lunga was declared winner by the rightful entity (ECZ) which is Constitutionally mandated to do such a thing. The ConCourt can only hear evidence and decide whether the petition satisfies the grounds for NULLIFICATION of the election and ORDERS A RE-RUN. Or whether the evidence does NOT CLEAR the BAR for such an action by the Court and in that case the DECLARATION BY OF A WINNER BY ECZ STANDS—but this does not in anyway mean the ConCourt declared a winner. What so hard to…

  9. I have never seen non functional brains like HH. Now he wants the courts to determine whether the swearing in was legal without the Con Court declaring winner. It is very st.upid (By the was stupid means slow in thinking) because the law states that the Chair ECZ declares winner and the Con Court after receiving and reviewing evidence might nullify and confirm the declaration. In this case HH and his madumbo should understand that the Con Court dismissed the petition as they did not receive any evidence in 14 days. So the declaration remained unchallenged by any evidence and stands. The Chief Justice is sued . These f00ls can they sue all those who voted for Lungu and they will see. Stolen money can really make you behave like a lunatic. And upnd cadres think if HH won he was going to…

If today the same Sampa says HH is a great leader and he’s leaving PF for UPND I doubt HH will turn him away. This is the same Sampa whom UPND leadership paraded at their rallies not long ago when it suited them. This is the same Sampa whom HH earlier this month referred to as a great alliance partner that made UPND traverse the country and thanked him for the extra votes he brought to the UPND through the working relationship.

HE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD BECAUSE HALF OF ZAMBIA IF NOT 3/4 OF ZAMBIANS BOTH CIVIL SERVANTS AND PEASANT FARMERS HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE THAT HE CAN CHANGE THE IMAGE OF OUR NATION IN TERMS OF COST OF LIVING TO BE NORMALIZED. MWANAWASA WAS A FARMER/ LAWYER, BANDA WAS A FARMER/ECONOMIST AND THEY DID WELL. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT A DAILY ROBBERY CRIMINAL IN THAT MATTER (LUNGU) WILL DO FOR US? INKONGOLEFYE WHICH YOU ARE BENEFITING AND TODAY…

    • Facts on the ground ba Senama indicate that HH is a very self centred, selfish and egocentric loner. I was shocked to see poor villages in southern province, including a powerless village headman, lamenting being displaced from their ancestral land by this man. And a journalist who wanted to get his side of the story earned himself massive insults from Mr HH. He even warned the journalist to wait for Thursday to see what he would do to him (he was sure he would be in plot 1). Oh I can imagine how many people were relieved that he lost. And ba Senama must tell us we missed out on a messiah! Give me a break please!

    • It’s a pity SENAMA that you won’ t get the job you were promised by HH. Tone down on your bitterness and talk nicely to ECL. He may give you a job, being the President any country would want to have. Like Sampa, the majority of those who voted for HH have realized their mistake and have already changed their minds and see him as a time waster. Do not be part of Nashala Neka Party, because this is where UPND is headed – abandonment by its members.

  27. The petition case is over and will not come back. What HH is asking for now is “my rights were infringed for not hearing me”. That is the case to be heard not hearing the petition case.

    • If the petition was of any substance at all, UPND was not going to waste time, but present the evidence in the prime time of 14 days. But because they are opportunists, they kept fidgeting until the 14 days expired. Ah! they are a bunch of unprincipled low lives.

  30. What perplexed me was the flailing that happened right at the beginning of that court case. While I sympathise with the fact that the main petition was not heard I still don’t understand why the opposition lawyers didn’t just cut to the chase from the get-go!? It appears there was a daring to the court to either go the technicality way or go the discretion way. I doubt very much that in the prevailing circumstances discretion had much room…

    • @Kalok you are right to some degree. The problem l have come to discover is that every Leader appoints people who can defend his or her wrongs. The con-court judges were appointed by ECL and there is no way the can turn against him. The two Judges who could not agree with the three somehow they were left from behind and that is why they acted that way. But all in all we need a Judiciary to be independent where by Chief Justice, Con- Court and Attorney General are voted appointed in by the parliament and not the president.

    • @Semeki Isn’t it the same Con-Court Judges who ruled that the President was wrong over the issue of Cabinet Offices remaining in office after [parliament was dissolved? Why then are you saying “The con-court judges were appointed by ECL and there is no way the can turn against him.”?

    • Point of correction ! The concourt judges were NOT appointed by Ecl. Ecl proposed names to parley and mps including upnd ratified the names ununimously. And it was not Ecl but executive proposed names to legislature in simple terms.

  32. A thief is a thief even after 14 days he is still a thief. So after 14 days we still have to determine his innocence or else he will keep stealing and keep getting away every 14 days

  33. God please help us resolve this matter; are HH/GBM the only ONES with RIGHTS? What about the RIGHTS of the Majority even in Southern Province where they are trivialized as minority voters but still voted for ECL; and the RIGHTS of Six Provinces out of Ten which wholesomely voted for ECL -don’t they have RIGHTS to have their votes respected and let their own WINNER continue leading this nation peacefully till 2021? Can some Court put these bye-gone Election Cases to some reasonable conclusive end. and can some wise members in UPND advise the two LOSERS to own up and leave space for other possible favourable candidates to contest future elections. In my layman’s understanding ECL was already declared Winner by ECZ the appropriate institution for announcing Election Results. The Courts…

  34. We Wil adjourn the case to next year in April and by that time the concourt judges will be replaced by the pro Pf. We know hh wants to use those two to have his useless case continue. Remember Pf is always a step aheard.

  35. The problem in Zambis is that wrong doing is more appealing than doing the right thing. It’s all written on the wall that the 2016 election were rigged. For PF they have no problem in getting the Presidence through theft and they want every body to accept that position. The petition hearing was technically blocked to avoid PF to be exposed that they stole votes. Yes ECL was declared president of Zambia unfortunately his reign has a dark cloud and will be remembered for his trickery. There is no glory at all when your election is perceived as dubious.

  37. UPND will still be in existence and the most progressive party with a vision to develope the country. PFs mandate is thuggery through and through, taking Zambia backwards. Injustice for PF is the order of the day. Where there is no vision people perish as clearly stated in the bible.

  38. MAYBE UPND MUST PUBLISH WHATEVER THEY CALL EVIDENCE IN THE PAPERS. ITS BEEN OVER 30 DAYS SINCE THE ELECTIONS WERE HELD AND WE HAVE NOT SEEN EVEN A SINGLE TRACE OF EVIDENCE. EVEN THEIR OWN LAWYERS REFUSED TO PRESENT FAKE EVUDENCE TI THE CONCOURT.

  39. There’s no evidence, gbm ninsoni akwete because he’d assured HH of clear victory. I remember the Mufumbwe by election which was disputed by the MMD but Upnd argued that there was an election can be rigged and that the ECZ was not guilty of any manipulation.

  41. Better late than never. We want a good precedent for the future. It is obvious that the Petetioners have a right to be heard. It is common cause that Concourt has not heard the Petetioners. It is true that Concourt has illegally dismissed the Petetion on time expiry technicality. It is a fact that there is no clause in the Amended Constitution mandating Concourt to dismiss the Petetion on any grounds let alone using the excuse of time expiry. Concourt should hear the Petetion and based on evidence provided by Witnesses determine and declare the Winner of this Election. The truth is Concourt has not done this and therefore the re-election of Lungu as President is illegal,Null and Void. Delivery of Justice is far more important than time expiry. Until this Petetion is heard properly,fairly…

  42. Zambians are double dealers. They act within PF but as UPND. So the truth is coming out now.

    I was pillaged by Gilbert Phiri and Makebi Zulu advocates and they used state cadres and their popularity of being close to State House and coming from the same tribe with the President. However, in their criminal organized ring. There is a pocket of UPND cadres steLing and operating together with them, and even Gilbert Phiri was one of the lawyers representing UPND in the Petition case. So both cadre must attend at the ICC.

    Now they are using telephone networks in their organized crimes and I will sue MTN and Airtel, at an international court, for aiding and abetting racketeering and money laundering acts on my UN benefits should their staff members be found with having helped the…

  43. You are tired because you do not want the truth to be known by Zambians. You are scared of the outcome of a fair and just petition hearing. As a concerned Zambian I want this case to be heard and the truth known. If it means taking it to the international court, let it be. We do not want Zambia to decline in its democratic ideals just because of PF. The 2016 elections both before and after were masked with impunity. This impunity has to come to an end. I think Zambia deserves better, we can not continue with this hooliganism of axing each other and stealing votes. It appears some animals are more equal than others. HH go ahead with the petition until the truth is known.
