Kambwili, Nkombo lose bid to join impeachment


THE Lusaka High Court has dismissed with costs an application by legislators Gary Nkombo and Chishimba Kambwili to be joined to the judicial review proceedings challenging Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini’s decision to entertain an impeachment motion against President Edgar Lungu.When the matter came up for a ruling yesterday, Judge Anessie Bobo threw out the application on grounds that the two legislators did not have sufficient interest to be joined in the matter.
Judge Bobo stated that by seeking impeachment on matters that are before the Constitutional Court, the two legislators were forum-shopping and, therefore, could not be joined to the judicial review.
