Zambian Minister Suspended For Slapping Lawmaker


Nigerian Military Reveals - ‘We Monitor Social Media For Anti-Govt. Information’

A Minister in Zambia has been suspended for one month for slapping a lawmaker within their National Assembly ground. Verbal abuse is common among members of parliament in Zambia but physical assault is rare.

Speaker of the Zambian National Assembly, Patrick Matibini, said Lusaka Province Minister, Bowman Lusambo, was suspended for slapping outspoken lawmaker Chishimba Kambwili in October 2017.
Kambwili has repeatedly accused government officials of corruption since his dismissal as information and broadcasting minister in November 2016 but the state denies the allegations. Kambwili complained after the incident that Lusambo had slapped him twice after accusing Kambwili of making false accusations against the government.
