HH addressing a rally in Mpika

UPND presidential candidate Hakainde Hichilema has demanded that all the PF ministers pay back what they have accumulated during their illegal stay in office with immediate effect and as ruled by the Constitutional Court.

And Hichilema has welcomed today’s ruling by the Constitutional Court that PF ministers have been holding onto public office illegally, saiying it vindicates his stance that the ruling party has been abusing its position during the campaign period in a desperate attempt to hold onto power at any cost.

“We can only describe such an act by PF as daylight robbery from the people by an outgoing government,” Hichilema said in a statement.

“We have regularly advised the PF on the need to cut excessive government expenditures and channel these resources to other needy sectors, but President Edgar Lungu and his PF have been a greedy leadership.

“This ruling shows how President Lungu and his ministers have no interest in serving Zambians, but only themselves.”

He warned that if they do not pay back as ruled by the Court, once voted into power, his government will ensure that they pay back the money.

“Our government, by God’s grace and courtesy of the people of Zambia, will focus on lowering the cost of living, creating better jobs, and delivering quality education and healthcare.”

  3. You don’t have to have a law degree to understand the illegality committed by Lungu and his illegal ministers for having occupied public offices . It is common sense to know that once one’s term of office , be it by tenure or contract, has expired,you no longer occupy the office and can’t not receive an emolument. Should one do so illegally , then the full might of the law should take its course in this case the occupant should not only pay back (with interest ) the ill gotten receipts but should be jailed or should be made to pay in leu of the jail sentence

    As for the so called deputy ministers and district commissioners, the reimbursement should calculated from the time the new constution was accented to.

    ECL, is an complice to the crimes committed by the former minisisters and as such should also be charged for having appointed these incoumpus against all legal social and political advice he was given

    Further more, all legal agreements, protocols, contracts etc that were entered into and or signed by these chaps they were occupying these positions illegally are now null and void. Zambians should not owner any such agreements.

    Solister General should forthwith resign and a tribunal be constituted to determine the sanctions that should be impossed on him for incompetence and iĺl advising the president

  4. President Lungu is breanch of the constitution which was sworn in to up hold. Clearly Edgar Lungu as a lawyer deliberately decided to ignore, disregard and fail to uphold the consititution.

    Therefore there are two plausible sanctions that should be impossed against the president : 1)he be impeached. However, in the absence of functioning parliament this parcatically impossible . Therefore to avoid further demeaning of the Zambian constitution by a sitting president 2) Zambians should kick Lungu on Thursday . Lungu is not only a danger to himself given his health and drinking problems he is a danger to Zambia . This is in terms of his disregard of the rule of law and total collaspe of all tenants of democracy . He selection ofmentors ofMuseveni and uncle Bob points a president who pay is towards dictatorship. Abash dictators abash Lungu, Mugabe , Museveni, kabila
