Court upholds injunction granted to MABA

CAROLINE KALOMBE, Lusaka
THE High Court has maintained the injunction granted to Midlands Amateur Boxing Association (MABA) secretary Christian Kalima to stop the Zambia Boxing Federation (ZBF) from holding an elective annual general meeting.
This is in a case in which Kalima is challenging the holding of elections to usher in a new executive committee.
High Court judge Mwamba Chanda made the order yesterday after hearing Kalima’s lawyers and that there was no opposition from ZBF general secretary Ceasar Musuku’s lawyer.
Musuku said through his lawyers that he was only served with an earlier order, therefore had not filed any opposition when the case came up for inter parte hearing.
The order is restraining Musuku, either by himself or ZBF agents or servants, from holding the annual general meeting and conducting elections until disposal of the case.
Kalima, in his statement of claim filed in the High Court, contended that Musuku had called for an extraordinary general meeting in which a purported constitution which was not approved by members was effected.
He argued that an AGM has been called in which the issue of qualification arose and that the candidature of presidential aspirant Thomas Chileshe should be nullified on account that he does not meet the qualifications.
Kalima wants the court to declare that the holding of the AGM be deferred to a later date or be nullified on grounds of constitutional imbalances.
Kalima contends that this is because of having two constitutions, the old constitution and a purported new document which has never been availed to councillors.
