High Court Judge Jack N’riva will give his ruling later in the case in which Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda and parliamentarian Mark Botoman want the court to lift an injunction which another lawmaker, Shadric Namalomba obtained.

Namalomba obtained the injunction against his removal from the chairmanship of the Public Accounts Committee of parliament and was replaced by Botoman.

Botoman, through his lawyer Wapona Kita and the attorney general told the court on Thursday in Blantyre that the injunction was wrongly granted.

Namalomba’s lawyer, Bob Chimkango, however says the court should reinstate Namalomba on the position, saying he was unlawfully removed.
