Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal Vacates MCP injunction

Supreme court of appeal sitting in Lilongwe has vacated an injunction which was obtained by embattled Malawi Congress party secretary general Gustavo Kaliwo restraining MCP from holding its convention.

This comes a day after the party’s NEC reinstated the five suspended NEC members.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, MCP deputy secretary general Izenihowa Mkaka, confirmed that the injunction has been vacated.

Mkaka said this gives the party liberty to conduct the convention and its activities.

“The party will announce the dates of the convention later,” Mkaka said

However, efforts to speak to Kaliwo proved futile as he could not answer his phone during several attempts.

The injunction which Kaliwo obtained on May 7th signed by high court judge Micheal Tembo, said MCP is not supposed to hold a convention until matters relating to the suspension of Kaliwo, Tony Kandiero, Jessie Kabwira, Richard Msowoya and Chatonda Kaunda are resolved.
