Zambia’s former President Edgar Lungu has withdrawn the case in which he called for a judicial review of the government’s alleged decision to bar him from travelling abroad on Saturday.

Mr Lungu was supposed to have travelled to South Korea for a conference, but shortly before his departure he was allegedly blocked from leaving because he did not have government clearance.

He took the matter to court for a judicial review, but he has now withdrawn the case on the grounds that the court had set 25 September for the hearing when the conference he was supposed to attend would end on 20 September.
