The High Court in Lilongwe has ruled against the Malawi Congress Party, restraining it from suspending the party’s embattled Secretary General, Pastor Chris Daza.

Making the ruling in his chamber on Friday August 31 2012 in a Civil Cause 219 of 2012, Justice Chifundo Kachale sustained Daza’s application for an interlocutory injunction against the oldest political party in Malawi from implementing its December 29 2011 decision to suspend him. Daza was accused of abdicating his responsibility as a Secretary General after been restored to the same by the courts earlier on. He was also accused of creating parallel party structures.

Justice Kachale dismissed the party’s defense on the basis of breach of the party’s constitution and failure to afford Daza his constitutional right to natural justice.
