THE Lusaka high court has reserved ruling to a later date in a matter in which Kasama Central Member of Parliament (MP) Geoffrey Mwamba has asked the court to grant him an injunction restraining the PF from suspending him.
Judge Nico Sharpe-Phiri yesterday reserved ruling to a date to be communicated after both Mr Mwamba and the PF argued their case in her chambers.
Mr Mwamba, who is former Defence Minister has in this matter sued PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba asking the court to restrain him from expelling him from the party.
Mr Mwamba was expelled by the Northern Province disciplinary committee for conduct likely to bring the name of the party into ridicule, contempt, disrepute and acting disrespectfully to the party.
He wants the court to order that his expulsion is illegal because the right procedure was not followed in expelling him.
Mr Mwamba said his resignation was necessitated by the option given to him by President Michael Sata to choose between Chief Chitimukulu-designate, Henry Kanyata Sosala, who happened to be his relation, and his job as minister of Defence.
He said that he opted to resign from his position in preference to his family. But the PF has denied expelling Mr Mwamba, saying he was only suspended from the party by a provincial disciplinary committee.
