Mumbi Phiri Demands K100 Million Defamation Damages from Kambwili

Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has sued expelled PF Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili in the Lusaka High for defamation following the alleged remarks suggesting that she needs help for drug addiction by the Drugs Enforcement Commission and claims for K1 million for defamation.

The plaintiff also alleges that Kambwili allegedly claimed that she is corrupt and received kickbacks from Chinese and Lebanese contractors with which she built her house.

Phiri wants the Lusaka High Court to order the National Democratic Congress leader to offer her general and aggravated damages.

The nominated lawmaker has asked the court to grant her an injunction restraining Kambwili from issuing more defamatory statements against her.

In this matter it is alleged that Kambwili uttered defamatory words, which have injured her political and professional standing in society.

Phiri has filed a statement of claim in the Lusaka High Court.
