High Court to hear 48 suspended UPND MPs on ThursdayBy Diggers Reporter on 26 Jun 2017
The Lusaka High Court will on Thursday hear a Judicial Review by 48 UPND members of parliament challenging Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Patrick Matibini’s decision to suspend them from the House for boycotting President Edgar Lungu’s address.
High Court judge Petronella Ngulube with hear the parliamentarians and the Attorney General who has been cited as the respondent.
This comes after judge Ngulube granted the MPs leave to apply for Judicial Review.
In this matter, Nalikwanda member of parliament Geoffrey Lungwangwa and 47 others asked the court to quash their suspension on grounds that the Speaker’s decision was illegal.
Meanwhile, the Constitutional Court has reserved ruling to a later date without hearing arguments from Kasama central member of parliament Kelvin Sampa as to why the election petition appeal should be dismissed.
His lawyer Kelvin Bwalya Fube failed to file heads of arguments on which to base the hearing.
ConCourt vice president said the court could not hear Sampa for failing to follow the procedure of filling.
Bwalya intended to orally argue the matter which move the court had not allowed as they were not availed the arguments.
The appellant, Sibongile Mwamba, has however insisted that the High Court verdict should be overturned because satanic remarks about her presidential candidacy highly disadvantaged her during the race.Related Items
