Parley suspends MUNDUBILE


By Patricia Banda

Mporokoso Member of Parliament BRIAN MUNDUBILE has been suspended for 30-days for breach of Parliamentary privileges and contempt of Parliament.

This follows a ruling on a point of order that was raised on October 6, 2023 by nominated Member of Parliament LIKANDO MUFALALI against Mr. MUNDUBILE for his conduct on the floor of the house and on the complaint by Moomba Member of Parliament FRED CHAATILA.

Mr. MUNDUBILE had made utterances that were demeaning and reflected negatively on the character and impartiality of the Second Deputy Speaker MOSES MOYO in the discharge of his duties.

This was during a press briefing by the Patriotic Front held at the National Assembly media centre.

But when Mr. MUNDUBILE appeared before the committee to determine his case, he   reiterated that the presiding officer has been unjust to him and defended his actions as necessary due to the lack of alternative ways to express his grievances.

Making the ruling on the matter, First Deputy Speaker MALUNGO CHISANGANO told Mr. MUNDUBILE who was in the House that as a long serving Member of Parliament and former leader of opposition, he was aware of procedure for challenging the decision of the presiding officer.

Ms. CHISANGANO pointed out that Mr. MUNDUBILE’s right to freedom of speech does not extend to lawlessness adding that his conduct ought to be exemplary and above reproach.
