GBM goes to court over seat

5

LUSAKA High Court judge Florence Lengalenga has granted leave for judicial review of the decision by the Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini to declare the Kasama Central seat held by Geoffrey Mwamba vacant.
According to an  application for leave , Mr Mwamba’s lawyers,  Mushipe and Associates, argue that the ruling of the speaker would exercise judicial functions by interpreting article 71 2 C in total disregard of  the provision of 72 1 A and the cases that are still actively before the High Court.
On July 28, 2015, Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini declared the Kasama Central seat vacant on account that Mr Mwamba had accepted the position of United Party for National Development vice-president for administration while being a member of the Patriotic Front.
