Lusaka High Court grants Ng’ona interim injunction halting Sampa’s attempt to overhaul PF leadership


Morgan Ng’ona remains the Secretary-General of the Patriotic Front faction after the Lusaka High Court granted him an interim injunction, effectively halting Miles Sampa’s attempt to remove him from the position.

According to the ex parte order issued by Justice Conceptor Zulu on Thursday, the court has also stayed the dissolution of the Central Committee, a decision made by Sampa when he appointed himself Secretary-General.

This stay included all actions taken by Sampa in his self-appointed role, such as the removal of Robert Chabinga from his position as Leader of the Opposition in Parliament.

These decisions have been suspended pending the hearing and determination of the matter.

On Wednesday, Ng’ona, through his lawyers, initiated legal proceedings against Sampa, the leader of the faction, contesting his removal from both the Central Committee and the Secretary General position.

Earlier in the week, on Monday, Sampa had appointed Mulenga Kampamba as Leader of the Opposition, Brenda Nyirenda as PF Chief Whip, and Hazel Kapeta as interim Deputy Secretary General.

However, Ng’ona refused to comply with Sampa’s directive to reverse the suspension of nine PF Members of Parliament, citing the party’s constitution.

Ng’ona is now seeking a court declaration that Sampa’s actions were illegal and void, arguing that Sampa exceeded his authority and violated the party constitution by making unilateral changes without the Central Committee’s ratification.
