High Court Judge Maria Kawimbe has thrown out National Democratic Congress Consultant Chishimba Kambwili’s matter in which he asked the court to nullify his expulsion from the Patriotic Front on technicality.
In July 2017, Mr. Kambwili sued the PF seeking a declaration that the decision of the party’s Central Committee to expell him was illegal, wrongful and void.
In his statement of claim, the former information Minister cited the PF Secretary General Davies Mwila as the respondent.
Mr. Kambwili wanted the Court to declare that his rights under the PF Constitution were infringed by not giving him chance to face his charges and further sought an order that the PF Central Committee could not be complainant, accuser and judge in its own case against him.
But when the matter came up today, Justice Kawimbe threw out the case saying it appeared the plaintiff was not serious about proceeding with the matter.
And reacting to the Court’s decision, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila has challenged Mr. Kambwili not to appeal the matter but consider putting his proffesed popularity to test.
He said Mr. Kambwili stands expelled from the party and the speaker should proceed to declare his seat vacant and precedence has been set in this regard.
