Opposition United Party for National Development president Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba will be back to the Constitutional Court pressing their case for political instatement as winners of the August 2016 general elections.
Hichilema and Mwamba who have multiple cases hinging on post-election disputes will appear today to questionin whether it was right to swear in President Edgar Lungu before all petitions had been properly heard.
Despite the petition originally being thrown out by the Constitutional Court Hichilema and Mwamba have not let the matter rest choosing to fight on in the courts of law.
In another court room UPND sympathiser Dr. Nevers Mumba has been granted bail. Dr. Mumba walked to freedom yesterday morning.
Magistrate David Simusamba granted Dr Mumba bail of K30, 000 and two working sureties.
