Mliswa Drags Speaker Of Parliament To Court Over Suspension From Parliament

Temba Mliswa, an independent Norton legislator has dragged Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda to court over his six-month suspension from parliament on allegations of disorderly conduct. 

Mliswa, in the urgent chamber application, seeks to have the decision set aside with costs and pending the final determination of the application, Mliswa wants his suspension lifted. 

Mliswa argued that Mudenda’s actions were ultra vires constitutional provisions that mandate him to abide by standing orders which he had breached by suspending him. He said according to the standing orders, Mudenda is only limited to impose punishment pertaining to a particular sitting of Parliament on that particular day. 

Mliswa was suspended by Mudenda almost a fortnight ago.
