The High Court in Lilongwe has adjourned indefinitely the case in which Democratic Progressive Party-DPP Southern Region vice President, Kondwani Nankhumwa and others are contesting their dismissal from the party.
According to lawyer for Nankhumwa, Gilbert Khonyongwa, all parties have agreed to give room for discussions outside the court.
He however indicates that all parties have been asked to submit relevant files in readiness for the resumption of the case should they fail to reach a decision outside the court.
“There is a possibility that the matter can be solved amicably, and with that we have asked the court to give us time, but the court has also asked both parties to make sure that all documents are filed in court for the main case within 10 days.,” Khonyongwa said.
Nkhonyongwa dismissed press statements that were circulating on social media, arguing that the matter is being discussed and that a solution will found.
Nankhumwa together with the party’s Secretary General, Grezelder Jeffrey, Treasurer General Jappie Mhango and Mulanje West legislator Yusuf Nthenda were expelled from the party for calling for the resignation of DPP leader, Peter Mutharika.
