Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema and five others have asked the Lusaka High Court to restore the matter in which they sued the state seeking compensation over false imprisonment on charges of treason.
The court had dropped the matter from active cause list on grounds that the parties involved were not willing to have it prosecuted.
But in an affidavit in support of ex-parte summons for an order to restore the matter to active cause list, the applicants through one of their lawyers, Kamuwanga Phiri of Malambo and Company says the applicants are desirous to proceed with the hearing on merits.
They have submitted that failure to get instructions on the matter was due to the plaintiffs busy schedule especially on the part of the first Petitioner who has been busy attending to matters of national duty in his new role as President of Zambia.
