Parliament opens on June 18


The Second Session of the Eleventh National Assembly will resume sitting on Tuesday June 18, 2013.

Parliament adjourned sine die on Friday March 15, this year, after concluding business.

Clerk of the National Assembly, Doris Katai Mwiinga, announced this in a press statement released to the Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Lusaka today.

As the houses resumes sitting next month, it will receive the new Member of Parliament for Kapiri Mposhi Eddie Musonda who was elected on April 23 last month.

The House will also receive the newly appointed Deputy Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, Poniso Njeulu and Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Deputy Minister Taundi Chiseke.

And as the House resumes sitting, it will be without former Chipata Central Member of Parliament, Mtolo Phiri, whose seat was recently nullified by the High Court.

Parliament will also be without Solwezi Central Member of Parliament, Richard Taima, Luangwa MP, Patrick Ngoma, Mkushi Central MP, Musonda Mutale, Lufwanyama MP, Eddie Kasukumya, all who resigned to join the ruling Patriotic Front as their seats await by-elections.


  1. Last paragraph was scary of whom parliament will be without. All those MPs I thought they died, thank God they just resigned, stwupidi Poo.Fs.

  2. They sleep when parliament is in session; and they sleep when it is in recess. When they are awake they are walking out or fighting and tearing documents (someone introduce iPads there)… at best of times Parliament Motel is a hive of licentious activity.
