I’II prove Kambwili is corrupt, dishonest, says - Ngwira
“I WILL prove in the Lusaka High Court that Chishimba Kambwili is a corrupt and dishonest person who has used his various portfolios in government to enrich himself and acquired the title of Doctor (Dr) in a questionable manner,” PF member, Chanoda Ngwira has said. This is according to documents Mr Ngwira has filed in the Lusaka High Court where he has been sued by Mr Kambwili, the Roan member of Parliament, for defamation. Mr Kambwili has sued Mr Ngwira over alleged defamatory statements which the latter uttered against him at a press conference on October 6, 2017 at Chrisma Hotel in Lusaka. Mr Kambwili claims that Mr Ngwira called him an irresponsible man who was not deserving of his title as “Dr” as he allegedly acquired the same in a questionable manner and that he was impotent and mentally challenged. Mr Ngwira, in his defence filed in court, says the words complained of were true and a fair comment on a matter of public interest and were not understood to mean the alleged defamation. He says he will demonstrate before the court that the said words are based on jurisdiction and a fair comment without malice. Mr Ngwira says he will prove during hearing of the case that Mr Kambwili never acquired his title after attending class for him to be called Dr. He denies allegations in Mr Kambwili’s claim, arguing that the words complained of cannot be understood to mean what Mr Kambwili claims them to mean.
