Re­tired sol­diers seek ju­di­cial re­view

Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS -

FOUR­TEEN re­tired Zam­bia Army of­fi­cers have ap­plied for leave to com­mence ju­di­cial re­view to chal­lenge the de­ci­sion of Army Com­man­der Paul Mi­hova to ban them from en­ter­ing any mil­i­tary camp in the coun­try.

Colonel Kelvin Mu­sonda and 13 oth­ers com­plained that the de­ci­sion by the Army com­man­der was ir­ra­tional, un­rea­son­able and against the rules of nat­u­ral jus­tice. The ap­pli­cants al­leged that the move was aimed at stop­ping them from pur­su­ing their pen­sion ben­e­fits. Ac­cord­ing to doc­u­ments filed in the Lusaka High Court, Colonel Mu­sonda and the oth­ers won­dered why Gen­eral Mi­hova al­legedly took such a de­ci­sion with­out giv­ing rea­sons.
