Declare Kambwili seat vacant, court urged

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) secretary-general Davies Mwila has asked the Lusaka High Court to direct Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini to declare the Roan parliamentary seat vacant.
Mr Mwila contends that Dr Matibini’s refusal to declare the seat vacant is illegal and against article 72 of the Constitution.
He has argued that the Speaker’s decision to give latitude to the court to conclusively deal with the case in which Mr Kambwili is contesting his expulsion from the PF is unlawful because he does not possess such authority.
Mr Mwila said that the dismissal of Mr Kambwili’s case by the court means that there is no challenge currently pending in the High Court to challenge the Roan parliamentarian’s expulsion from the ruling PF.
