The High Court in Lilongwe on Friday shifted to Monday, August 13 to deliver its ruling in a case in which Malawi Congress Party (MCP) secretary-general Dr Chris Daza is challenging his suspension from the party.
According to Daza’s lawyer Wesley Namasala the ruling which has been shifted because the presiding judge Chifundo Kachale was not available.
Daza was suspended just after a month when the High Court ordered the party to reinstate him after he was expelled last year.
He was suspended after he presented a petition to the party dated August 1 2011, with signatures of office bearers calling for the convention to elect a new leader.
Daza also wants the convention to inform the membership on finances and clearly saying veteran leader John Tembo is ineligible to run as per party constitution.
But MCP administrative secretary Portipher Chidaya accused Daza of presenting a fraudulent petition as “the list contains dubious district committees, signatures or wrong people who are not chairpersons recognised by the party.”
MCP disciplinary committee agreed to suspend Daza after he failed to appear before it to answer on the accusations of “fraud”.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
