Itimu: Fighting to vacate injunction

Spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice Apoche Itimu said the legal team was putting up a legal battle at the court to vacate the injunction.

She however said the court has called for two parties to present themselves for a hearing on Friday

Four members of parliament namely Kamlepo Kalua, Enoch Chihana, Harry Mkandawire and Peter Chakwantha obtained the injunction arguing the clerk of parliament Fiona Kalemba should not be sworn in because she came third in interviews conducted at parliament by the Parliamentary Service Commission chaired by Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya.

The four legislators accuse President Peter Mutharika of tribalism and nepotism for leaving out the person who came first Judge Charles Mkandawire.

Mutharika said he picked Kalemba because of her expertise in bill drafting which he said is prerequisite for the job.

APM is indeed a dunderhead.The clerk of Parliament is not responsible for drafting bills.Fiona Kalemba used to but not in the capacity as COP.Bills are tabled and scrutinized by members of parliament.Wakalambadi mkuluyi.

Journalists please do not hide the district of origin of Fiona Kalemba. We all know that she comes from Ntchisi district. Is Ntchisi district in the Southern region? Is it in Nsanje or in Mangochi or in Phalombe or Blantyre? Where is Mutharika’s nepotism or regionalism coming from?
