High court Blocks Ras Chikomeni


The High Court has rejected an injunction application which was aimed at extending time for Ras Chikomeni Chirwa to get signatures from all districts aswell as exempting him to pay the K2million nomination fee.

As per the ruling, granting Chikomeni the injunction would have delayed the elections calender for the May 21st slated elections.

According to Chikomeni’s legal team the matter will be taken to the Supreme court.

“We are considering taking the matter to the supreme court. When we sit down we will advise our client accordingly,” said Chikondi Chijozi, lawyer to Ras Chikomeni.

Another Presidential aspirant, Smart Swila has shown interest to join Chikomeni’s case.

“I was disqualified simply because i did not present my running mate so i feel that my rights were infringed. Am planning to join  the  case as an interested party.

“I will be following the case closely because i too want justice to prevail,” said Swila.
