Tutwa Ngulube files an injunction to halt his expulsion, demands US$ 9 million from PF in unpaid legal fees
Ruling PF Kabwe Central MP Tutwa Ngulube has filed an injunction to restrain the PF from expelling him.
According to court documents obtained today, Mr Ngulube who was the PF Legal Counsel until June 2017 is also demanding payment of US$ 9 million in unpaid legal fees.
Mr Ngulube wants the Court to order that Friday’s planned meeting where his disciplinary case is up be heard is illegal, null and void.
He said the PF Secretary General and the Provincial Chairman for Central Province have no constitutional powers to call for a disciplinary hearing.
Mr Ngulube is contending that if the meeting goes ahead without being given an opportunity to respond to the charges, his constitutional right to be heard would have been violated.
He also stated that the meeting planned for Friday at the Secretariat where his expulsion is meant to be announced in the presence of party functionaries will be in violation of Statutory Instrument Number 79 of 2018 banning public gatherings.
Mr Ngulube has fallen out with the PF hierarchy following his recent public statements critical of the party.
