Prove Luo link, UPND petitioner challenged


CONSTITUTIONAL Court Judge Enoch Mulembe yesterday challenged United Party for National Development (UPND) lawyers to state how Munali Member of Parliament Nkandu Luo was directly linked to the violence which allegedly characterised her election in 2016.
In response, losing UPND candidate Doreen Mwamba’s lawyer, Gilbert Phiri, told the court that Professor Luo was not on record as having sponsored the attack on UPND supporters but that she benefited from the incident.
And Ms Mwamba has asked the court to dismiss Prof Luo’s appeal against the nullification of her election on grounds that she benefitted from the violence.
