Mrs Phiri has since asked the Lusaka High Court to order Mr Kambwili to also offer her general and aggravated damages. PF Deputy Secretary-General Mumbi Phiri has sued Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili for defamation of character and has demanded 100 million Kwacha for special damages.
She has further asked the court to grant her an injunction restraining Mr Kambwili from issuing defamatory statements against her.
She says the defamatory statement implied that she is corrupt and that she built her house using bribes from the Chinese and Lebanese companies that get contracts from the government.
Mrs Phiri alleged that in doing so Mr Kambwili did not bother to find out the truth before issuing the alleged statements. This is contained in the statement of claim filed in the High Court.
