Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has come out of its cocoon to challenge the court ruling delivered three weeks ago, ordering the Party to go for convention within 90 days to replace the fired members or revert to old positions.
On March 18 2016, the High Court in Lilongwe ordered MCP to hold the convention in 90 days after some disgruntled members took the Party to Court.
The disgruntled members led by their lawyer Wesley Namasala said they were not happy with leadership style of party president Lazarus Chakwera whom they accuse of disregarding elected positions in the party and opted to appoint people into positions.
Today the Party through its lawyer Peter Chakhwantha went to Lilongwe High Court to challenge the ruling but the Judge failed to hear the arguments as all Judges were attending a workshop.
Chakhwantha confirmed of the development in an interview with the press, saying the Party will file their arguments to the Judge on Thursday.
Chakwera is being accused of being nepotistic in the way he appoints people to positions in the Party.
