Government rescinds Sangwa’s ban

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The government through the Judiciary has lifted the ban it had imposed on Constitutional lawyer John Sangwa to practice in Zambia.

Sangwa was barred from practicing in March this year following a complaint by the judiciary to the Law Association of Zambia.

The complaint was as a result of how the State Counsel (Sangwa) criticised the way the Constitutional Court handled President Edgar Lungu’s eligibility case.

There was a debate with regards to Lungu’s suitability to run for the third term.

Meanwhile, the Judiciary Chief Registrar and Director of operations, Charles Kafunda said the complaint against Sangwa still stands.

He added that the complaint will be determined by the Law Association of Zambia, in line with their code of practice.

  1. You forgot to mention the part where he recanted his statement about Lungu’s ineligibility to run for a third term. That is the only reason he has been reinstated. I guess when you need to eat . . .
