Court grants injunction to Nankhumwa camp stopping DPP expulsions

The High Court in Lilongwe has granted an injunction to leader of opposition in Parliament Kondwani Nankhumwa, Democratic  Progressive Party (DPP)  Secretary General Grezelder Jeffrey, treasurer general Jappie Mhango and Mulanje West legislator Yusuf Nthenda, stopping the DPP from  expelling them from the party and their positions.

The lawyer for the four, Gilbert Khonyongwa has confirmed that the
four sought an injunction because they feel their firing was unprocedural and that it violates his clients’ right to freedom of opinion.

The four were expelled at the former president Peter Mutharika’s retirement home in Mangochi.

He said now the four can continue to political rallies  or meeting in the name of DPP.

The four can also use the party emblems or convene any meeting in the name of the party.

The injunction also stops the DPP from proceeding with the election of a Leader of Opposition.

University of Livingstonia political scientist George Phiri warned that DPP was headed for disaster if the leadership does not properly look into the issues.

I wonder why proMuthalika camp is panicking. If we are indeed confident that Nankhumwa has questionable qualifications then let us bank our hopes on kicking him out using that loophole. It is a criminal offence and if he realises that he will be cornered he will back out. I also wonder why the educated DPP MPs can be tossed around by this crook. Nankhumwa claims he has a masters degree from a local private university, are you guys so brainwashed u can’t see that Masters degree cant be used to even enroll for 1st year of similar course at UNIMA?… Read more »

I saw it coming,nankhumwa has always appeared to be power hungry to me.he has always try to potray himself as an angel when in true sense he is dirty.he is crook and corrupt.if he was clean and with intellectual ingredients upstairs,i was going to endorse him for sure.dpp needs new faces and pair of hands.all these who are fighting are all spent forces.

Nankhumwa has backing of the courts through Mcp and mama kadzamira. This is to cause confusion and destroy dpp. This guy needs to be removed from the party. The court has no power to force the party to have him. It’s a bad marriage

No need to drag MCP into this. Just sort out your dirt without involving everyone. Once upon a time you tried to convince everyone that Peter mutharika was a very listening and democratic person. Now who was telling the truth? So do not complain. Just handle this, the way you see fit. Don’t drag everyone into your cess pool…!!!

All we are asking you is to ensure that Malawi remains with a strong opposition. Don’t kill our hard earned democracy. Because this is where your DPP power hungry leaders are pushing this country to. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!!!

This civil war is a protracted one. At no point did the team holding the firing gun from the APM retirement home ever think that the quartet would seek refuge in the palaces of justice. No instant coffee with these political upstarts. Tenacity happens to be their sunshine motto it’s the present sticking to the past while these four think their agenda stands for the future so here is Malawi witnessing the DPP moving chairs in the music hall with any master to assist the orchestra in delivering a coherent piece. Kudos to our democracy courts will order fresh NGC… Read more »

hand picked dpp officials, trying to fire those who were voted into positions by people. the sooner APM realises that Browmn Mpinganjira, uladi chenji golo, and Joji Maize gate chaponda are misleading him the better.

The dog is loose it won’t listen to the instructive whistle of the master at the Beach home. Nobody touching the rotting carcass even flies can’t land on it so it is the picnic for the spirits as they all hold elective positions these spirits have been at the core of the DPP malaise they now are the last drop of blood from the whimpering party in the ICU

You are out of the party just accept it, the court may have granted you temporary relief but don’t expect this will last. Your friends in mcp tried the same tactics but in the end they were still expelled. How long can the court compel dpp to accommodate you? Soon the injunction will be lifted and you will be out for good

Nankhumwa should emulate Ben Phiri, who resigned from his position.

I love the development in the opposition camps. It affords us a wide spectrum to plunder, enrich ourselves and further our self interests without hindrance. [.please continue.. a.p.m & co.]
