Matibenga Blocks Biti’s Return To Parliament

Lucia Matibenga, the leader of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) breakaway faction, has filed an appeal at the Supreme Court challenging the return of MDC Alliance Vice President Tendai Biti and his colleagues to Parliament.

That was after High Court judge Justice Joseph Mafusire last month ruled Biti and five other MPs, who are part of the other PDP faction, and were recalled from Parliament should return as their recalls were unlawful.

According to court papers, The aggrieved MPs, who include, Kucaca Phulu, Settlement Chikwinya, Willias Madzimure, Regai Tsunga, Chelesile Mahlangu had filed a court application seeking execution of Justice Mafusire’s judgment.

They said their order for execution should be granted as the appeal before the Supreme Court did not have the power to suspend the lower court’s order.

The aggrieved MPs, who include, Kucaca Phulu, Settlement Chikwinya, Willias Madzimure, Regai Tsunga, Chelesile Mahlangu have since filed a court application seeking execution of Justice Mafusire’s judgment.

They said their order for execution should be granted as the appeal before the Supreme Court did not have the power to suspend the lower court’s order.

The MPs also argued the court should grant them an order of execution as Simango, Matibenga and Benjamin Rukanda were abusing the law and using the Supreme Court appeal to delay their reinstatement into Parliament.

They demanded the court orders Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda and Parliament to comply with Justice Mafusire’s judgment and reinstate them back into Parliament.

The matter is yet to be heard.
