Judge Musonda defers Mufumbwe ruling to November

Judgment in the Mufumbwe constituency by-election petition has been deferred to November 2010.

The judgment in the matter which was expected to be delivered today by High Court Judge Philip Musonda, will now take place next month on a date to be announced.

This is in a matter in which loosing MMD candidate Mulondwe Muzungu, has petitioned the election of United Party for National Development (UPND)’s Elliot Kamondo as Member of Parliament for Mufumbwe constituency in the April 29, 2010 by-elections.

Mr Muzungu wants the court to nullify the results of the by-elections on the basis that the elections were marred with violence.

The Mufumbwe by elections campaigns were characterized by some of the worst violence in recent times with three people losing their lives in the process and several injured.
