Newstead Zimba withdraws case from court because it has been reported in the media

Former Cabinet Minister in the MMD government Newstead Zimba has withdrawn a case where he had sued his former wife Naomi over property.
Mr Zimba had also sought an injunction in the Lusaka High Court to restrain her from accessing all bank accounts and interfering with their properties.
In his notice of discontinuance filed in the Lusaka High Court principal registry, Mr Zimba said he had decided to withdraw the matter on grounds that his intentions had been made known through the media.
In his affidavit in support of his latest actions, he said he felt it would be prejudicial for the case to proceed further because the same had appeared in the print media and his essence of his claims had been defeated before the courts could deal and conclude the matter.
“That before the ex-part summons have been dealt with by the court, the said case appeared in yesterday’s print media exposing all the claims and relief that I sought.
