Roan PF member of parliament Chishimba Kambwili has obtained an ex-parte injunction against PF cadre Chanoda Ngwira retraining him from issuing any further defamatory statements.

In this matter, Kambwili, who is also National Democratic Congress political consultant, sued Ngwira in the Lusaka High Court seeking damages for defamation stemming from various media statements the latter had been making.

Judge Susan Wanjelani granted the injunction yesterday retraining Ngwira and his servants or agents from publishing any further libelous statements against Kambwili.

She set hearing for February 19, 2018 at 08:30 hours.

Kambwili has sued numerous people and media houses for branding him a thief among them; President Edgar Lungu’s press aide Amos Chanda, Daily Nation and its proprietor Richard Sakala, Times of Zambia and other PF cadres.
