The matter has been allocated to Ndola based Judge Isaac Chali.
Judge Chali will tomorrow, (Friday July 11, 2014) set the date for hearing.
Even Abraham Mwansa the new Solicitor General, who stands in when there is a vacuum in the office of Attorney General has not been sworn in for the same reasons.
Probably some junior officers from the two offices will turn up.
On Thursday, Changal filed court documents to compel cabinet to appoint a medical board to examine president’s mental and physical ability to continue in office.
Sata has not been seen in public or heard saying anything for 20 days now.
On June 20, he was evacuated to Israel unconscious where he remained in a comma for ssome time.
