FORMER MINISTER, VUWA KAUNDA, TAKES GOVT TO INTERNATIONAL COURT FOR RESULT NULLIFICATION
Former Nkhata Bay Central Constituency lawmaker, Symon Vuwa Kaunda, has sued the government of Malawi at the African Court on Human and People’s Rights in Arusha – Tanzania following a decision by the Supreme Court of Appeal to nullify his seat.
Attorney General Dr. Chikosa Silungwe has confirmed receipt of the application of notice last Thursday but said he is yet to make a recommendation on the way forward to government.
Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson Justice Chifundo Kachale says they are yet to be served as preparations for the June 29, by-election in the disputed constituency and two other wards are currently underway.
In an Interview, Vuwa Kaunda said he has sought to obtain a stay in his application at the African Union Court to review the Supreme Court of Appeal’s basis to nullify the 2019 Parliamentary Election.
Law experts have told us compliance to the orders by the court of the regional block hinges on political will by particular member states.
