I’m re-submitting the matter to examine Sata’s head- Changala

Civil Rights activist Brebner Changala says he will resubmit his writ of mandamus for judicial review to seek relief on the decision or indecision by Cabinet to consider the question of the physical and mental capacity of President Michael Sata.

This follows High Court’s decision to dismiss his earlier application for judicial review in the matter he is asking the court to constitute a medical board to examine the health of President Sata.

The Court has dismissed his writ of mandamus on grounds that it lacked merit and was frivolous and vexatious.

But Mr. Changala has told Qfm news in an interview that he is of the thought the matter was mishandled.

Mr. Changala says this is because the matter was dismissed without him and the Attorney General, who was the respondent to the dismissed writ of mandamus, being given chance to be heard.

He says he also wanted three judges to hear his matter as opposed to only one Judge.

Mr. Changala notes that to this end he will resubmit his writ of mandamus in the same Court next week on Monday the 14th of July.
