President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu resurfaced and came back to face the public after staying off the cameras and lime light in the past few days.

Lungu who was last seen at ZNBC studios on Thursday after storming the station and held a live interview TV program only appeared on the swearing ceremony at statehouse.

Lungu has so far absconded campaigns over the weekend leaving the public to speculate about his where about. Recently the Vice President Inonge Wina has led the PF campaigns in Central Province.

 

And speaking after the swearing in of eight judges of the Court of Appeals at State House today, President Lungu said Zambia has one of the best judicial systems that should be protected and defended from intimidation

 

The President said being a politician he will set as an example to protect and defend the integrity of the judiciary.

 

He has advised politicians faced with cases before the courts to refrain from bringing names of others in the proceedings.

 

President Lungu has since advised office bearers in the court of appeals to remain independent and uphold integrity because the oath taken demands so.

 

He has also assured the judges that government will do its best to ensure their conditions of services and office accommodation are taken care off.

 

Those sworn in include Justice Fulgency Chisanga as Judge President to be deputized by Justice Chalwe Mchenga.

 

The Court of Appeals Judges include Justice Catherine Makungu, Justice Justin Chashi, Justice Flavia Chshimba, Justice Judy Mulongoti, Justice Dominic Sichinga and Justice Mubanga Kondolo

    • There should be a deliberate policy of balancing tribes on the bench. You cant have justice with one tribe dominating the benches of the different courts. It is evil and pathetic. The constitution of the bench should as far as possible reflect the diversity in the subject society. This is what is happening in more civilised societies like even RSA. This is the reason we need a new government to put order to the whole system.

    • JUSTICE IS FOR ALL CITIZENS. PEOPLE FROM ALL TRIBES WILL GO TO THE COURT OF APPEALS. THIS IS NOT GOOD, WHERE ARE ALL OTHER LEARNED FRIENDS FROM OTHER TRIBES? LOZI, NGONI, TONGA, LALA, ILA, SOLI, NSENGA, CHEWA, LUVALE, CHOKWE, LUCHAZI, KAONDE,LAMBA ETC ETC ETC. TRIBES MUST BE BALANCED ON THE BENCH JUST LIKE CABINET

  5. There are good and bad consequences of presidential appointment of court of appeal judges. It was going to be essential to keep a balanced amount of political parties involvement and not just tribes, as some have insinuated, within the composition of Court of appeal judges. Its also my view that the timing of these appointments shortly before the elections isn’t the best decision. The composition of the court of appeal judges should not be one-dimensional. This means that there was need for more of a balance between the ruling party and the opposition or some form of involvement of the opposition in the process in order to provide balanced views if and when petitions arise.

    Presidential appointment of Court of appeal judges has some good and not so good consequences. From the presidents stand point he has the advantage of surrounding himself with judges who are loyal to him. However, presidential appointments of court of appeal judges can also bring about plenty of bad consequences if those appointed are not impartial. I hope that those appointed will have the interest of the people of mother Zambia at heart. I hope that they will execute their duties diligently by being impartial. I hope that they will play the role of wise referees who both interprets the rules and ensures that they are followed. Otherwise this would lead to insurmountable problems to the people of Zambia.

  7. HH has handed victory to Lungu because he picked the wrong running mate. As a Bemba if you ask me to choose between lungu and GBM I will pick Lungu. Lungu will serve my In terests better than GBM who can only destroy Bemba’s reputation

    lungu will win
