Lusaka High Court throws out Sampa’s injunction
Lusaka, December 4th, 2014, ZANIS —– The Lusaka High Court has thrown out the application by Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa seeking an injunction to restrain Defence Minister Edgar Lungu from being declared the President of the Patriotic Front.
Lusaka High Court Judge Isaac Phiri dismissed the application by Sampa filed yesterday before Judge Mungeni Mulenga and referred to Judge Phiri this morning and stated that the action was an abuse of the court process.
Mr. Sampa, the Commerce Deputy Minister , sought an injunction to restrain Edgar Lungu from assuming his position until his complaint was addressed.
The development follows a consent judgement that declared Lungu as the lawful PF President yesterday by Judge Mungeni Mulenga but was however allocated to Judge Isaac Phiri.
The development presents another legal headache for Sampa who had been declared winner of the second PF General Conference held on December 1st.
