Minister Suspended For Slapping Lawmaker During Plenary

Zambia’s parliament suspended a cabinet minister on Tuesday from its proceedings for one month for slapping a fellow lawmaker within parliament grounds.
Verbal abuse is common among members of parliament in Zambia but physical assault is rare.
It was gathered that, Speaker of the National Assembly, Patrick Matibini, said that Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo was suspended for slapping outspoken lawmaker Chishimba Kambwili.
Kambwili has repeatedly accused government officials of corruption since his dismissal as information and broadcasting minister 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.
Matibini said that Lusambo was banned from entering parliament grounds and using its facilities during the period of suspension and will not be entitled to any allowances.
