The so called Constitutional court has adjourned for 30 minutes again.

This means 30 minutes will be more than the 23:45 hours which the court earlier said will determine the outcome of the 2016 elections.

This was after the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba eloquently deliberated on the possible injustice that may arise if the court is rush in passing judgement on the matter.

In his submission, Mr. Hichilema who debated against over 15 PF lawyers appealed to the court to take into account that for judgement to be made both parties must be heard in a fair manner.

Mr. Hichilema also reminded that tempers among Zambians are high as they have set the eyes on the court for a just judgement.

And his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya adds that it is surprising that the same constitution which allowed people to vote beyond what is stipulated in the constitution on 11 August, 2016 could not allow the same people testify how an election was stolen from them.

But PF legal counsel team had objected that time must not be changed regardless of the petitioners submissions.

And in passing guidance, Constitutional court President Judge Hilda Chibomba adjourned the hearing for 30 minutes in order to decide on the computation of time submissions made by the two UPND Leaders.
