Parliament has no powers to examine Kambwili’s mental capacity, Parliament tells Munir

The National Assembly has thrown out PF cadre Munir Zulu’s request to have Chishimba Kambwili’s mental status checked.

In a letter dated November 2, 2017 signed by the Clerk of the National Assembly, Speaker of the National Assembly had no capacity to check the Roan PF member of parliament’s mental well-being.

“I am directed to acknowledge, with thanks, your letter dated 11th October, 2017 in which you petitioned the Hon Mr Speaker to constitute a Medical Board to inquire into the mental status of Mr C Kambwili, member of parliament for Roan Constituency,” read the letter.

“I am further directed to inform you that currently, there is no law that empowers the Hon Mr Speaker to constitute a Medical Board to examine the mental status of a member of parliament. In the circumstances, the Hon Speaker is unable to grant the relief that you are seeking.”
