Mwenya Musenge’s fast track dream of forming a political party has hit a brick wall with the Registrar of Societies telling him that the process could take up to three months. Musenge, who insists his paper work to register the proposed National Democratic Congress (NDC) is in order, said that he was surprised that his party will take three months to register when political parties had been registered within five days. The Registrar of Societies has even declined to receive the K5, 000 fee for the registration of the NDC but only received the documentation promising to scrutinize the paper work. Musenge has struggled to register his political party that is deemed a front for expelled Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili. Kambwili has clung on to his Patriotic Front membership through a court action although his vitriolic attacks on the ruling party suggest his days in the party are numbered.

Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) had another fruitless day at court with his case for allegedly proposing violence adjourned after state witnesses failed to pitch up. Mwamba popularly known as GBM is in court for having metaphorically said that he was going for President Edgar Lungu’s throat. Patriotic Front deputy spokesperson reported Mwamba to the Lusaka Central police on grounds that the sentiments had put the life of the President in danger. When the matter came up before Magistrate Thandose Chabala the prosecution team informed the court that the two witnesses that were expected to testify were not available. The matter has been adjourned to November 6 for the prosecution to close their case. GBM has become a near permanent fixture at court where he is facing a litany of cases that he alleges are politically motivated.
