Mkandawire assaulted Jones Sabola who was distributing envelopes to MPs containing calendars.

The MP had asked for another envelope but when the staff was trying to explain to him why it’s not possible to have another envelope, the MP punched him and insulted the poor lad.

Parliamentary Sergeant at Arms, Major Samuel Mkambankhani came in to rescue the staff.

The victim, who was rushed to Parliament clinics, has been treated as outside patient but his left hand remain swollen.

Leader of the house Francis Kasaila approached Clerk of Parliament to apologise on the incident.

Speaker Richard Msowoya has said he will bring the ruling after all evidence are brought on his table.

It is said that the incident was captured by the CCTV cameras.

Bravo Mr Speaker Sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dishonourable MP has been slaped with 90 days of suspension from the August House. He will miss committee meetings and part of the parliamentary seating to come. In other words the constituency has no MP for 90 days.
