Zambian court rules Lungu inauguration to go ahead

The inauguration of president Edgar Lungu is planned for September 13, 2016, after opposition tried to block it“The inauguration of president Edgar Lungu will go ahead as planned… the court has ruled in our favour,” one of Lungu’s lawyers, Tutwa Ngulube, said after the in-camera court session. The high court ruling is the latest defeat for opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema, who earlier in the week tried to challenge Lungu’s victory, claiming the election was rigged. Earlier Friday, Hichilema, a wealthy businessman who has run five times for president, also accused incumbent Lungu of bribing constitutional court judges who declined to consider the earlier challenge saying the opposition leader had missed the filing deadline.
