RICHARD Mumba a resident who petitioned 52 United Party for National Development (UPND) Members of Parliament (MPs) who are in court for shunning President Edgar Lungu’s address to Parliament has asked the Court to strike out and dismiss amended answers by the respondents.
This is in a matter where, Mr Mumba petitioned the court and was seeking a declaration that Mazabuka MP, Garry Nkombo and 51 others contravened articles 72 (2) (c) and 261 of the Code of Ethics, articles 260 Oath of Office and section 19 (e), acts of intentional disrespect to the President and proceedings of the National Assembly when they shunned President Lungu’s address.
