Nakachinda: Nkombo’s Bill 10 Point Of Order Offside

Movement for Multi-Party Democracy nominated Member of Parliament Raphael Nakachinda has alleged that the point of order raised by Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo to suspend resumption of the debate on the constitution amendment Bill number 10 of 2019 does not boarder on the Bill.

He says he has come to learn that the point of order is based on the contraction of debt and nothing to do with Bill 10.

On Wednesday speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini suspended Parliament before it adjourned sine die to study a point of order on a Constitutional Court petition in which former Commerce Minister Dipak Patel wants Government to explain why they have been breaching the 2016 law on contraction of public debt.

According to the 2016 Constitution amendment, it is a mandatory legal requirement in Article 63 (2) (d) for National Assembly to approve public debt.
