Simutemba is also asking the court to declare that the failure by Scott to renounce his ‘Scottish’ citizenship makes him unqualified to act as president or carry out functions of Zambian president.
But the British High Commission (Scotland is part of Britain or UK) says Scott renounced his British citizenship in 1965. See documents below.
Sean Melbourne, the acting High Commissioner in Lusaka wrote that a search in the UK passport database shows that Scott does not hold any British passport.
In this case, Simunyemba is seeking leave (permission) to start judicial reveal against cabinet’s decision to allow Scott to act as president.
Simunyemna works with Lusaka lawyer Kelvin Bwalya and it is believed that it is Bwalya who drew the court papers. Bwalya is one of the directors in Anti-rigging Zambia.
In 2008, Simunyemba and Bwalya attempted in vain to end the reign or Rupiah Banda.
The two asked the High Court to declare that Rupiah Banda was no longer Vice-President and acting President of Zambia following his filing of nominations for the office of Republican President.
The court threw out the application for lack of merit and that the applicants had no ‘locus standi’ (interest) in the matter.
