Mr Sampa contends that the Lusaka High Court Judge in Charge Isaac Chali, erred in law and fact when he delivered the ruling on the matter without hearing the parties.

Mr Sampa has argued that Judge Chali also erred in law and fact by declaring that a consent judgement had already been approved and signed by Lusaka High Court Judge Mungeni Mulenga.

He further states that Judge Chali erred in law and fact as his ruling indicates that Mr Sampa sought to be declared as official PF Presidential Candidate,when he did not seek for such a relief.

Lusaka High Court Judge-in-charge Isaac Chali dismissed Mr Sampa’s application for an injunction to declare null and void the election of Edgar Lungu as PF President .

Judge Chali held that Mr Sampa’s stance to take back to court a separate action on a matter which has already been adjudicated upon by the High Court was an abuse of the court process.

He further pronounced that allowing the process to proceed any further would bring the administration of justice into disrepute among the right thinking people.

Earlier High Court Judge Mungeni Mulenga excused herself from handling the matter in which Mr Sampa filed for an injunction to declare null and void the election of Edgar Lungu as PF president .

Judge Mulenga referred Mr Sampa’s application back for relocation.

On Wednesday, Mr Sampa asked the Lusaka High Court to declare null and void the election of Mr Edgar Lungu as PF president.

Mr. Sampa sued former PF Secretary General Bridget Atanga and Edgar Lungu as first and second defendants.
