PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has sued Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili for defamation of character and has demanded K100 million for special damages.

Mrs. Phiri has since asked the Lusaka High Court to order Mr. Kambwili to also offer her general and aggravated damages.

She has further asked the court to grant her an injunction restraining Mr. Kambwili from issuing defamatory statements against her.

In this matter, it is alleged that Mr. Kambwili who is also National Democratic Congress Consultant uttered defamatory words, which have injured her political and professional standing in society.

She says the defamatory statement implied that she is corrupt and that she built her house using bribes from the Chinese and Lebanese companies that get contracts from government.

Mrs. Phiri alleged that in doing so Mr. Kambwili did not bother to find out the truth before issuing the alleged statements.

This is contained in the statement of claim filed in the High Court.

  2. Mumbi Phiri there is no court in the world that can award you that much money for defamation. Or maybe the biased concourt.

  3. K100 million for damages can only be given by those white-wigged Constitutional court judges who locked a man up for 6 years for ‘disrespecting’ them

  4. Madam Phiri, this assumes your “character” was worth K100 million to begin with. Seems pretty hard to believe. Still laughing.

  10. Legally,this case cant go anywhere, rest assured. How do you prove injury which you havent suffered. In a claim for Damage, you need to prove that in the second instance.

  11. When I saw the heading, the first thing that came to mind was the purported supply of tissue by Kambwili to replace the daily mail newspapers in the toilet. LOL

  12. It’s OK to be offended and Rodge a complaint like that, let me ask Mumbi did you mean k100 or k100,000 or you are still standing on k100million?.There is still room for you to withdraw that and guide us to give fair comments. Like this we take it as a joke. Please help us. In any case try as much as can to be sober when inviting media personals.
