The High Court in Mzuzu has set Friday as the day it will have the inter-party injunction hearing after State legal team asked to vacate an injunction that is restraining parliament from swearing in Fiona Kalemba as clerk of parliament.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
