Former Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmaker for Nkhata Bay Central Constituency, Symon Vuwa Kaunda, has sued the Malawi Government at the African Court on Human and People’s Rights in Arusha in Tanzania following a decision by the Supreme Court of Appeal to nullify his seat.

Attorney General Dr. Chikosa Silungwe has confirmed receiving the application of notice last Thursday, May 27.

Silungwe said his office is yet to make recommendations on the way forward to the government.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson Justice Chifundo Kachale says they are yet to be served as preparations for the June 29, by-election in the disputed constituency and two other wards are currently underway.

Meanwhile, Vuwa Kaunda said he has sought to obtain a stay in his application at the African Union Court to review the Supreme Court of Appeal’s basis to nullify the 2019 Parliamentary Election.

Legal commentators have since described that compliance to the orders by the court of the regional block hinges on political will by particular member states.
