The doctor, Natasha Mulenga, has submitted in the Lusaka HIgh Court through her lawyers that Ms Mwanza has been elusive.

A judge ordered that court process against the outspoken TV presenter be served the through the Zambia Daily Mail.

In her court documents, Dr Mulenga submitted in the Lusaka High Court that while driving home, she found a broken-down vehicle in Chainda area with traffic building behind it.

The doctor decided to keep to her lane and pass the scene in order for the built-up traffic to flow but before her vehicle passed the broken-down car, Ms Mwanza started flashing her lights at the doctor’s car.

The defendant then bypassed the broken-down vehicle, joining Dr Mulenga’s lane.

Upon Ms Mwanza blocking her vehicle, the Television personality disembarked from her vehicle with a firearm in her right hand, approached Dr Mulenga’s vehicle while shouting and banging on her vehicle.

The plaintiff said the incident caused her to suffer extreme trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, severe anxiety, and physiological distress and sleep disorder, nightmares and gastrointestinal upset.

She later submitted in court that she had challenges in personally serving the court summons on the defendant and that she attempted to deliver the court documents at her last known address in Salama Park but did not find her.

Dr Mulenga added that last month, her lawyers served the court documents at Ms Mwanza’s home where her son acknowledged receipt of the documents.
