Lilongwe High Court has made a ruling against Malawi Congress Party President Lazarus Chakwera’s bootlicking NEC, calling it illegal and unconstitutional.
In the ruling which was delivered on October 7 , the court found that Chakwera and his NEC he have no power to fire any member from Malawi Congress Party.
”Malawi Congress Party new NEC is illegal and unconstitutional in terms of Article 30 of the MCP constitution.” Reads the judgement.
The judgement further states that since the current MCP NEC is invalid, Chakwera decision to fire prominent MCP members or dismiss them from the party becomes useless and those who were fired or dismissed will never cease to be MCP members.
“An order that the current composition of MCP’s NEC has no powers under the constitution to dismiss any member,” it adds.
Chakwera was tussling in court with Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma and Dennis Nanthumba who were fired from the party and sought the service of the court.
This means that Chatinkha and Nanthumba are back in MCP and whosoever faced the fate as their, remains a member of Malawi Congress Party.
