Another bye-election as MMD expels Namugala

DEG-Sambia WirtschaftstagThe MMD meeting at Chrismar Hotel this afternoon officially expelled Mafinga MP Catherine Namugala for gross misconduct and bringing the party into disrepute.

Out of 45 NEC members present kafumukache did not vote as he was asked to leave room pending disciplinary charges while Vice-president Brian Chituwo voted against expulsion.

The 43 other NEC members all voted for her expulsion, which means there will be a bye-election in Mafinga once the Speaker of National Assembly, Patrick Matibini receives instructions from the party and writes the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ).

In her exculpatory letter, Ms. Namugala referred to Chituwo as working with him to reorganise the party.

She had asked court to give her injunction which was not granted but an inter party hearing is on wednesday.
