Nevers questions ruling on Dora

MMD president Nevers Mumba yesterday questioned the Supreme Court ruling on Dora Siliya.

But Minister of Justice Wynter Kabimba said it was unfortunate that Mumba, as a leader, could issue such contemptuous statements against the Supreme Court.

In a statement yesterday, over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn suspended High Court judge Charles Kajimanga’s declaration that Siliya was duly elected member of parliament for Petauke Central, Mumba said the MMD had doubted the legitimacy and fairness of all Supreme Court rulings on parliamentary election petitions.

“The Zambian people are aware that the scheme to deplete the opposition numbers in Parliament was hatched by the PF in October 2011 after they won the election. The scheme was to increase the tally of their numbers to 106 required to have an absolute majority in Parliament,” he said.
