Mulenga Sata addresses a UPND rally in Mpika
UPND lawyers representing Mulenga Sata in a matter in which Mr sata petitioned the election of Hon Given Lubinda this morning submitted before judge Mungomba that the witnesses for Mulenga Sata were visited at mid-night by known PF- thugs.

UPND lawyers Keith Mweemba and Counsel Haimbe argued that there can be no justice if witnesses are being threatened. The UPND lawyers sought guidance from the court on how court could proceed.

The first witness for Mulenga Sata , Collins Malambo was at midnight visited by PF thugs with death threats. The PF cadres have since been reported to the police.

Meanwhile PF cadres stormed the high court reception causing havoc and confusion at the court. For the first time political cadres have stormed the court rooms insulting and intimidating the court and the UPND lawyers.

The cadres later went to the supreme court grounds to control traffic and censoring who should enter the court grounds.

The court became increasingly insecure and the judge opted to adjourn the matter to tomorrow, and Friday being the last day.

The UPND lawyers resolved to apply to Subpeona (summons) the witnesses so that the come and testify their threats as well as proceed with their testimonies.

The respondent Lawyers (Lubinda lawyers, Attorney general lawyers and ECZ lawyers ) tried to object the death threats but the UPND lawyers argued that it is premature and irresponsible for the PF lawyers to take a serious matter lightly when their witnesses are being threatened. The matter adjourned to tomorrow at 9hrs.

    • What’s your response to this IG Kanganja (ZP)? Looks like their are no longer security agencies in Zambia. How can you allow cadres to disturb such high institution of law? Ba Lungu ba mbuya, please wake up!

    • This is a worrying tendacy where cadres are trying to overrun legitimate government systems. Itcis tantamount to promoting arnachy. If the president doesn’t put a stop to this then the country will slide into chaos. You won the election you now must ensure that sanity is brought back to the country.
      We cannot accept a situation where thugs want to be in charge of everything beating people who disagree with you and acting with impunity!

    • There is no benefit or incentive to PF cadres. The party has long been over. It is UPND cadres putting on PF regalia and staging this drama. And why should this matter purported to have occurred in the night without credible evidence be submitted and argued in court. Again these UPND lawyers have no evidence to table in court to prove that Satana had his vote stolen. It is another ConCourt drama-watch this space.

  2. I think your dad is turning in the grave once again, sadly not with pride but unhappiness for abandoning your home and everything it stands for. Man please get your head from the ground and apply to be re-admitted in PF. You will make your father proud….

  3. Let us wait to hear more! How can cadres storm the court room, something they never did even during the highly charged Presidential petition? How will the death threats be proven to be true and not just malicious? How can someone manage to enter a secure home of an individual at midnight,someone known and the witness allows that person to go back peacefully and just reports to the police and goes to sleep peacefully to wait for the court session to resume? One truth is clear, MULENGA IS NOT POPULAR AND DID NOT CAMPAIGN ENOUGH TO CHALLENGE INCUMBENT LUBINDA successfully!! HE JUST LOST AND SHOULD FIND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO!!

    • @6.1 Jameson.. Just say something constructive to show cause why Mulenga is even petitioning? All Mulenga has done is to pick on the UPND’s directive to petition elections to legitimize a lie that HH won? You have seen what has happened to Anthony Makuwa who petitioned against Kalaba in Bahati! His case has been thrown out because he was just going to be wasting courts time he has no facts. What is Mulenga’s real case instead of creating stories of threatened witnesses which are hard to prove! How can one prove that a person had threatened another at midnight? It is even hard to find independent witnesses in that case!!

  4. Ba UPND Kuwayawaya fye. The claim to have evidence and witnesses but fail to deliver within stipulated time. Are the witnesses dead to go to court? How did Mulenga Sata make it to court?

  5. How can I be expected to believe in the veracity of a report from the UPND MEDIA TEAM? Is this not just a piece of propaganda meant to elicit sympathy for the UPND and Mulenga Sata?

  6. PF CARDES HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE IN THIS MATTER. THEIR CANDIDATE WON CLEAN AND SMART. ITS UPND. AS IN THE PAST, THEY DRESS THEIR THUGS IN PF PARTY REGALIA , MAKE THEM DRUNK WITH CHIBUKU AND SMOKE GANJA AND THEY TELL THEM TO CAUSE TROUBLE. PF CARDERS HAVE NEVER INVADED THE HIGH COURT GROUNDS. ITS THE THUGS FROM UNDER FIVE PARTY WHO DO THAT. JUST WATCH. SEE HAKALUZA HEKA’S PHOTOS IN THE PAPER TOMORROW, YOU WILL SEE HIM SURROUNDED BY THUGS AND HOOLIGANS. THATS THEIR STYLE OF DOING THINGS. THIS PLOY WONT WORK. WE KNOW IT TOO WELL. JUST PRESENT YOUR EVIDENCE IF YOU HAVE ANY, OR LEAVE HON LUBINDA ALONE TO DO HIS WORK FOR THE COUNTRY.

  7. 9 yes the source itself spoils the report. Upnd have resorted to childish lies such as Edgar has purged the civil service of Tongas.

  8. All this propaganda will not work because we know how to check out the truth of information. As Mulenga, I hope HH will assist him with the legal fees because he’s wasting time challenging the obvious.

  9. To our colleagues, the water melon formula will not work and it has always failed. Try something else. Again, why are UPND MPs attending parliament when they have justified the boycott to attending the official opening purporting to be illegal. In as far as they are concerned, parliament has not yet been opened; so why attending parliament which has not yet been opened? UPND never stop amazing me.

  10. (it is premature and irresponsible for the PF lawyers to take a serious matter lightly when their witnesses are being threatened.)
    JUST LIKE THE SOUTHERN PROVINCE CHIEFS ESPECIALLY CHIEF MUKUNI TRIED TO DOWN PLAY THE NAMWALA SAGA WERE BEMBAS AND EASTERNERS WERE MISTREATED AND THEIR HOMES BURNT TO ASHES.

    IF WHAT HAPPENED IN NAMWALA HAD HAPPENED IN NORTHERN,LUAPULA OR MUCHINGA ON THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS FROM SOUTHERN PROVINCE, ALL CHIEFS WOULD HAVE HAD A PROVINCIAL MEETING TO FORGE THE WAY FORWARD ON THE BEMBA PEOPLE BUT THEM ITS AS IF ITS BUSINESS AS USUAL.

  11. This lawlessness is shameful and a reflection of the leadership of the day. We saw it before during and post the election time. It is continues now. How does the judiciary when function when such abject intimidation is being exhibited under the nose of the courts? can the man who claims stand up and stop this rot before this country degenerates into total arnachy??

  13. Look this man is an absolute nitw.it. Last week he wants to rejoin PF, this week he is fighting for a UPND Seat! What’s it about? We know the story of treats are untrue because the cadres would have been more likely to pay Sata Jr a visit than his pointless witnesses. I mean what credible witness can they lead to his case? ECZ handled the elections and declared them, what counter witness is there?

    Muppets! Shameful display of an greed, avarice lead court case. Desperate as well!

  17. Even if the rerun was conducted Very few would vote for the nomad considering how much Lubinda has done for his constituency. This is the man who looks forward to be spoon fed. His father tried by giving him a job but alas never proved his worth. UPND was just placing people anyhow based on unproved popularity.

  18. Can somebody please provide me with tangible proof that UPND won the elections.Because starting from International observers who came to witness the elections and the world over recognized that the election were free and fare won by the PF. Why can’t the UPND and it’s educated *****s provide some clues here why the think they won elections after amassing votes from only 3 provinces. Nobody else in the wordl thinks that elections were sttolen, only UPND after being seasoned losers. You never win by creating confusion and making unsubstantiated accusations. Good that they have been warned by locking them up for not respecting the will of the people .

    • THE ONLY PROPER AND SURE WAY OF THIS ELECTION ROBBERY CLARIFICATION WAS THROUGH A RE-COUNT OF THE BALLOTS IN THE AFFECTED AREAS . OTHER THAN THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO PRESIDED IN THE ELECTIONS ARE CONFESSING SOME EVEN COMMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE OF THE SAME MISCHIEVOUSNESS OF HOW THEY MESSED UP THE VOTES ESPECIALLY AGAINST THE UPND. LET US NOT SWEEP DIRTY UNDER THE CARPET. MIND YOU LIES HAS GOT SHORT LEGS. UPND WON THE ELECTIONS FULL-STOP.
