CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI SUES FOR BENEFITS
*Due to Patrick Matibini’s incompetence and cadre mentality, government to lose money
Former Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has sued the National Assembly for benefits and allowances following the Constitution Court findings that he was wrongly removed from office.
Mr. Kambwili is demanding that Parliament pays him all allowances and benefits up to the year 2021 when the lifespan for this parliament expires.
In a February 18 Judgement, the Constitution Court ruled that Speaker Patrick Matibini breached the Constitution when he declared the Roan seat vacant noting that according to the rule of seperation of powers, the declaration was supposed to be the preserve of the judiciary.
Ironically, Speaker Patrick Matibini is a former High Court Judge.
