Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS -

PA­TRI­OTIC Front (PF) Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Davies Mwila has been sued by PF Vice-Sec­re­tary for Kap­wepwe Ward 25 in Matero Con­stituency, Christo­pher Mumbi and Ward chair­man Charles Kabwe who are seek­ing a dec­la­ra­tion that the in­tra-party elec­tions held in the ward last month are null and void. In their ac­tion, Mr Mumbi and Mr Kabwe claim that they had greatly been dis­ad­van­taged as there was no trans­parency and fair­ness in the said elec­tions. They want an or­der of in­terim in­junc­tion re­strain­ing Mr Mwila ei­ther by him­self or through his agents from per­form­ing Kap­wepwe Ward 25 func­tions un­til fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion of the mat­ter. In a state­ment of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, the duo say on Septem­ber 29, PF held in­tra-party elec­tions for var­i­ous ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions in re­la­tion to Kap­wepwe Ward 25 and that the said elec­tions were not free and fair as they were char­ac­ter­ized by un­usual ac­tiv­i­ties.
