Zambia’s former President, Edgar Lungu, has decided to withdraw his case in which he sought a judicial review of the government’s alleged decision to prevent him from traveling abroad on Saturday.
Mr. Lungu had planned to attend a conference in South Korea on Saturday but was reportedly denied permission to travel due to a lack of government clearance.
He initially took the matter to court for a judicial review.
However, he has now withdrawn the case, citing scheduling conflicts. The court had scheduled the hearing for 25 September, while the conference he intended to attend would conclude on 20 September.
