PF Matero Member of Parliament, Miles Sampa, has been allowed to commence in the Lusaka High Court, contempt of Court proceedings against acting party president, Given Lubinda, and his Secretary General, Raphael Nakacinda.
This followed an application by Sampa for leave to begin committal proceedings against the senior party officials before Judge Timothy Katanekwa.
“Upon ex parte summons for leave to issue committal proceedings and upon reading the affidavit in support sworn by one Miles Bwalya Sampa and upon hearing counsel for the applicants. It is hereby ordered that leave be and is hereby granted to issue committal proceedings against Given Lubinda and Raphael Nakacinda,” read the order.
Sampa argued that Lubinda appointed Nakacinda as party Secretary General despite being aware that the court directed that they desist from acting as such.
On February 9, 2023, Katanekwa, granted Sampa an exparte order restraining them from holding themselves in their position or carrying out party functions pending determination of the matter in which he was challenging his suspension.
