  • Description

    ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA HAS APPOINTED A THREE-MAN TRIBUNAL TO REVIEW RESTRICTION ORDERS AGAINST MR NALUMINO MUNDIA, FORMER LEADER OF THE BANNED OPPOSITION UNITED PARTY. MR MUNDIA'S APPEAL AGAINST THE RESTRICTION WAS HEARD IN THE HIGH COURT AT LUSAKA YESTERDAY (MONDAY).

    MR MUNDIA WAS SENT TO RESTRICTION IN THE NORTHERN PROVINCE LAST AUGUST. AFTER THE UNITED PARTY WAS BANNED HE, WITH MANY OTHER OF ITS MEMBERS, JOINED THE ONLY REMAINING OPPOSITION PARTY IN ZAMBIA, THE AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS. MR MUNDIA IS NOW VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE ANC, WHOSE PRESIDENT, MR HARRY NKUMBULA AND SEVERAL OTHER PARTY OFFICIALS, WERE PRESENT AT THE HIGH COURT HEARING.

    THE COURT HOUSE WAS SURROUNDED BY CROWDS, MANY OF THEM SYMPATHETIC TO MR MUNDIA. THEY DEMONSTRATED IN HIS FAVOUR AS HE WAS DRIVEN AWAY FROM THE COURT IN A POLICE LANDROVER WITH A MOUNTED POLICE ESCORT.

    THE HEARING HAS BEEN ADJOURNED UNTIL FRIDAY (16 MAY) BECAUSE MR MUNDIA TOLD THE COURT THAT HE HAD NOT HAD ENOUGH TIME TO BRIEF A LAWYER.
