PF presidential hopefuls appeal high court dismissal of petition challenging Sampa’s election


Chishimba Kambwili and six other Patriotic Front (PF) presidential hopefuls have filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal against the Lusaka High Court’s decision to dismiss their petition challenging Miles Sampa’s election as party president.

They argued that High Court Judge Vincent Siloka made errors in law and fact by dismissing their petition on grounds of alleged multiplicity of actions, citing a similar case before the Constitutional Court.

The appellants contended that the High Court failed to distinguish between the two cases, which they claimed involved different subject matters and jurisdictions.

Additionally, they argued that the court misapplied the law and introduced unrelated facts in its ruling.

They also asserted that the judge lacked the authority to dismiss the case under Order 14A(2).

The petitioners include Mutotwe Kafwaya, Emmanuel Mwamba, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, Greyford Monde, Brian Mundubile, and Chitalu Chilufya, all of whom had paid K200,000 each as nomination fees to contest the party presidency election last year.
