Soldier left with stammer after serving in freezing conditions sues MoD

Exclusive

FREEZING COLDSTREAM GUARD

A FORMER Coldstream Guard left with a stammer after serving in freezing weather is suing the Ministry of Defence for £860,000.

Chileshe Mwamba, 31, was deployed in Estonia in the winter of 2017 after transferring to the Royal Engineers.

But he says the icy temperatures left him with a “non-freezing cold injury”, post-traumatic stress disorder and a stutter that makes him “almost unintelligible”.

Mr Mwamba, from Derby, wants damages claiming the impediment and cold injuries have affected his life-style and work prospects.

The MoD has admitted liability for some non- freezing injury caused to Mr Mwamba, but does not accept that the cold caused his stammer.

He must prove his losses and the extent of his injuries at a High Court trial to take place next year.
