Msowoya, Kaliwo and Kabwila obtain court order against MCP: Retained in their posts 

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) first-vice president Richard Msowoya together with party secretary general Gustav Kaliwo and three other executive members who were suspended last Sunday, have  gone to court for a relief after obtaining an injunction stopping the main opposition party from implementing the decision of the national executive committee (NEC).

Kaliwo: Obtains court order to stop MCP suspension

Former Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale, who is now in private practice,  represented Msowoya and others  in obtaining the court order.

Kaphale said the injunction was granted by High Court judge Healey Potnai and means Msowouya, who is also Speaker of Parliament, retained his position as MCP first-president and Kaliwo as secretary general.

He also said the court order also retained Jessie Kabwila whom the MCP NEC dismissed .

Others temporarily rescued  are Tondy Kandiero (former s treasurer general) and deputy secretary general Chatonda Kaunda.

“As it is , five members have retained their positions until another court order,” Kaphale said.

MCP NEC resolved on Sunday to suspend Msowoya and Kaliwo pending disciplinary action for their alleged role in destabilising the party.

And on Tuesday this week, newly appointed MCP publicity secretary Ezekiel Ching’oma announced Kabwila’s dismissal and the suspension of the other members

Judge Potani ordered the MCP members to file interpartes summons in 14 days.

The judge also orders MCP and its leadership to respect the court injunction reinstating the officials, warning that if they disobey , MCP president Lazarus Chakwera and others may be found guilty of contempt of court “and may be sent to prison” or fined  of their assets being seized.

Potani said MCP  may apply to court anytime to discharge the order but must inform Kalekeni Kaphale Layers firm  in writing  at least 48 hours beforehand.

Vuto a Kongolesi they don’t learn and they don’t change. Zimenezi zidachitikaponso m’nthawi ya Tembo ndi abambo a Chakwamba and it failed.
