MP Masumba drags MMD to court

Embattled MMD Mufumbwe Member of Parliament, Steven Masumba has challenged his expulsion from the party in the high court.

Mr. Masumba who is serving in the PF government as Local Government and housing deputy minister charges that the decision to expel him was done out of malice and without due regard to the rules of natural justice.

In his statement of claim filed in the Lusaka high court Mr. Masumba claims he was not heard at any disciplinary hearing to determine his merits or de merits of his position.

He is asking the court to order that his expulsion from the MMD is null and void.

Mr. Masumba has also filed in an exparte order for the court to grant him an injunction against the MMD until final determination of his law suit.
