There is no consent judgment between Lungu and Miles, judge duped

Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 18.16.56Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 18.17.05Lusaka High Court Judge Mulenga Mungeni was Wednesday afternoon duped by the Edgar Lungu’s team to sign a fake and faulty consent judgement.
Meanwhile, Lawyers representing Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa are tomorrow expected to file in an application to set aside the faulty and fake consent Judgement that Judge Mulenga Mungeni was duped into signing.
A consent order is a judgment signed by parties to a court case agreeing to end the case. The parties agree outside court then go to court for the judge to endorse it and withdraw the case.
In this case, the parties in the matter in court are Edgar Lungu, Inonge Wina, Davies Chama and others on one side; on the other side is Miles Sampa, Bridget Atanga and others. A consent judgement in this case can only be signed when Lungu and Sampa agree to stop fighting and withdraw the matter from court. But in this case, it’s only one party, Lungu’s team which has agreed to the ‘consent judgment’ and signed it among themselves. How can Lungu, who appointed Davies Chama as his own secretary general sue him at the same time? The person who is claiming to be PF president is Miles Sampa and this is the person Lungu’s team sued and it is him who can sign a consent judgment.
But what happened in this matter is that Lungu with his other crooked lawyers made Davis Chama who was appointed by Lungu himself to sign a consent judgement that was supposed to be signed by Attanga.
“A consent judgement means the other aggrieved party has agreed to the terms but how can Chama who was appointed by Lungu give consent, it was supposed to be either Bridget Attanga or Miles Sampa,” one lawyer said.
Meanwhile, the Lusaka High court is tomorrow expected to set aside the dubiously obtained and questionable consent Judgement as Miles Sampa’s lawyers were by Press time preparing documentation.
This is the level of desperation the Lungu camp has reached. They go to the extent of deceiving a judge.
