THE Lusaka High Court has ordered an interparte hearing in the matter of Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Livestock Greyfold Monde who is seeking an injunction to restrain the United Party for National Development (UPND) from expelling him.
High Court judge Evans Hamaundu made the order yesterday after refusing to grant Mr Monde an ex-parte order because what he is challenging has already taken place (expulsion).
“I will order that the injunction be heard interparte, suffice to say that as I hear the interparte, should it appear to me that the plaintiff may become prejudiced before concluding the interparte, I may grant an interim order. This matter will come up on March 4, 2013,” Mr Justice Hamaundu said.
Mr Monde has sued the UPND through its secretary general Winston Chibwe and wants the court to nullify his expulsion.
