Malawi Congresd Party (MCP) Kasungu Central MP Amon Nkhata has been summoned to appear before a traditional leaders tribunal in his area following a fracas that erupted at the funeral of chief Lukwa’s mother.
Nkhata said he would appear before the tribunal, saying he wants to defend himself on the matter.
“Other politicians from some political parties publicly offered their condolences during the funeral service, why then did the DPP stop me from doing the same.
“I just wanted to announce how much the party had offered to console the bereaved family,” he said.
He said politics or no politics, he was supposed to go and mourn with chief Lukwa on the demise of his mother.
In another interview, chief Lukwa alleged the Malawi Congress Party provoked the situation.
“I cannot understand that this happened to me, I am still in a state of shock, my BP rose up terribly after the incident,” he said.
He said the Chewa King Gawa Undi is expecting a report on the matter.
Chief Lukwa, who tows Democratic Progressive Party line, said Nkhata should be disciplined.
The fracas happened when a DPP governor Oswald Chirwa forcebly snatched a microphone from Nkhata.
The clergy failed to deliver a sermon as political opponents beat each other and dignataries were whisked away to safety.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
