High Court Judge Gertrude Chawatama has granted former Transport and Communication Minister William Harrington the application to commence judicial review proceedings against former Tourism and Arts Minister Sylvia Masebo.

This follows Mr Harrington’s dissatisfaction with the findings of the Judge Roydah Kaoma tribunal which established that Ms Masebo did not gain any pecuniary advantage when she dismissed senior Zambia Wild Life Authority officials over the tender for hunting concessions.

Meanwhile Judge Chawatama has recused herself from handling the matter in which Mr Harrington is seeking judicial review on the tribunal findings.

Judge Chawatama has since advised that the file will be reallocated to another Judge to avoid the perception of bias as she sat on the Wynter Kabimba tribunal.

She says dates for the hearing of the main matter will be communicated to both parties.

And Mr. Harrington has welcomed the decision by Judge Chawatama to grant his application for judicial review, describing it as professional.
