The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says it will not participate in the National Day of Prayer on Wednesday in Kitwe. President Edgar Lungu has gazetted October 18 every year as a National Day of Prayer and Fasting but the UPND has always shunned this event. UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma says that the event was highly partisan with the organizers inclined to the ruling Patriotic Front. Kakoma said that the event would also be an occasion for the organizers to mock their opponents as speakers tend to be sloganeers for the ruling party. “How do you expect us to go there to an event that organized by Christians for Lungu, we would be more comfortable attending a function for Christians for God,†he said. “We are denied our rights to assembly, our rights free movement with our people rotting in jail and you want us to be joining in celebration.†President Lungu will grace the National Day of Prayer and Fasting that is being held at Nkana Stadium.

The University of Zambia has announced drastic changes to the accommodation structure at the institution with the exclusive male residence known as the ruins now expected to house females. UNZA public relations officer Damaseke Chibale said that the move would ease the ease with which demonstrations were fanned at the ruins by students. “Management of the University of Zambia has noticed with great concern that over the years, most riots are organised in the exclusive male students’ residence, mainly referred to as Ruins,†Chibale stated. “Further, the behaviour of the male exclusive residents tend to be hostile towards female members of the public who include students, staff and visitors of the university. To moderate this unfriendly behaviour, management has decided to give the front hostels of International, President, Kwacha and Africa to female students on the swap basis.†The statement adds: “This means that all male students who were accommodated in the earmarked hostels would be taken to New Residence hostels to occupy rooms left by female students who will be taken to old residence hostels. It should be emphasized here that no student involved in this rearrangement would lose his/ her accommodation.” The post UNZA ‘Monks’ to Vacate Ruins appeared first on Zambia Reports.

NAREP president Elias Chipimo says the ruling by the Judicial Complaints Commission (JCC) that that Constitutional Court erred on its 14 day interpretation in the presidential petition is outside its mandate. Chipimo said the JCC had no powers to rule against a decision by the Constitutional Court as it was the final court of appeal. He said that while he was not disputing the rationality of the decision by the JCC he could not overlook the fact that they overstepped their mandate by rubbishing the decision of the Constitutional Court. Green Party president Peter Sinkamba had filed a complaint with the JCC in September alleging misconduct on the part of Constitutional Court judges in the manner they threw out presidential petition on a technicality. The JCC said that the Constitutional Court had erred by throwing out the petition at the 10 day mark instead of the requisite 14 days. The UPND has refused to give up on the thrown out petition and has been jumping at every possible window to squeeze in their grievances in the post-election period.
