Speaker Richard Msowoya: Ruled matter over in the house

The government side had promised to give out information on the matter following the motion that was moved by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) MP Richard Chimwendo Banda

When the matter came before the House the minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu told the House that indeed the children of Msiska’s had been arrested.

Tembenu said Rumphi police had received a complaint the children of Msiska’s had assaulted a traditional healer from their village and have since appeared before the court and duly been charged.

He also told Parliament that since the matter is before court it cannot be debated in Parliament.

Tembenu cited Standing Order 192 which reads: ” On matters before a court of Law subject to the right of assembly to legislate on any matter awaiting or under adjudication in any court of record shall not be referred to in a motion, debate or question from the time the case has been set down for trial or otherwise before court, if there is real danger of prejudice to the trial of the case.

The Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya then ruled the matter has been closed.

Chimwendo Banda and Kamlepo Kalua must be suspended for causing unnecessary havoc in the August house. Silly Visionless legislatures who have nothing to offer to their constituents.
