Bagus takes PP to court over Uladi, Kamlepo appointments: Court grants injunction

Peoples Party  (PP) organising secretary Salim Bagus and four other officials have successfully obtained a court injunction at Mzuzu High Court restraining Uladi Mussa and Kamlepo Kalua from taking senior party offices.

Uladi Mussa:  Injunction against his acting PP presidency

Uladi Mussa: Injunction against his acting PP presidency

Bagus confirmed having obtained the court injunction restraining Mussa from taking office as acting president and Kalua as third vice president of the party.

“Our president did not follow procedures when making the appointments. The party is now being run as a personal estate,” said Bagus.

Others who obtained the injunction are Daniel Kaipa, Cliffa Kondowe, Zelezi Gomani and Bornwell Kapatuka Phiri, most of whom are district party governors.

Bagus said going to the court was a last resort having tried to engage top party officials to resolve the matter internally failed.

However party spokesman Ken Msonda said PP has not been served with the court injunction.

“But this is a surprise. Real party members do not go to court, they would resolve matters amicably within party structures. Whether injured or disappointed, bonafide members would not rush to courts,” he said.

He could not say whether the party would honour the court injunction by restraining Mussa and Kamlepo from discharging their duties, saying the decision would be made after being served with the court injunction.

The injunction comes barely a day after Moses Kunkuyu, deputy publicity secretary of the party resigned.

Party president Joyce Banda has been in self imposed exile since she lost the 2014 elections. She came third in the presidential race and her party was fourth in the parliamentary polls.

Some sections  in  PP are calling for a convention to resolve the  leadership crisis.

Since 2014, PP has been hit with  resignations of senior members like its vice presidents Cassim Chilumpha and Sidik Mia. Others like Brown Mpinganjira and Harry Mkandawire have also abdicated from their positions.

Kamlepo and Uladi r loyal members of PP. Let us seal uncivilized politics as run by Bagus. It is clear Bagus wants PP dead. He castigated JB and PP on TV and yet he claims to be its member. DPP, if u hv a hand in this then its proof that u still doubt ur 2014 victory

wa ku Mitchesi kujaaaaa!!!!

Stop blaming DPP, inu munali ku Guantanamo, for everything deleterious to PP. That Party, PP, is responsible for its own problems: the trajectory is down, towards six feet under, baasi.
Guantanamo did not reform your thinking?
