YALI is saddened by the fact that the Supreme Court bench has given the Zambian people a lukewarm judgment and provided advice instead of a clear judgment based on the fact of law in a matter relating to the setting up a tribunal and judicial review for the three judges who challenged their suspension in the high court.
The Supreme Court was not requested to give advice but to make a decision on vital constitutional issues surrounding the Tribunal and the granting of the Judicial Review. The decision of the Supreme Court has given the Executive greater latitude to meddle in the affairs of the Judges and will lead to a weakened and compromised judiciary.
YALI is alive to the fact that the matter of the public order act is still in our courts of law because the Supreme Court in the matter of Mulundika and seven others Vs the State was also not very clear and fell short of saying that the act must be repealed. It is such judgments that leave a lot of questions unanswered and leave the Zambian people in an awkward position but with a binding precedent that might be used by another leadership in future. One would have expected that the Supreme should have just been clear as it is not a place for moral issues, it a place to interpret the law and provide guidance on the serious constitutional issues that affect the nation.
We have noted with great concern very strange decisions emanating from our judiciary and would like to join the clarion call for effective judicial reforms so that the judiciary can execute its mandate and work without any political interference. We are aware that the Acting Chief Justice has been dragging her feet on efforts to investigate the conduct of Minister of Tourism, Sylvia Masebo despite having been given compelling grounds for the Tribunal to be set up. There is no way we can continue to have an acting Chief Justice at such a crucial moment when we are implementing judicial reforms. We therefore demand that the Acting Chief Justice should be retired as she has already attained retirement age and a suitable replacement floated to parliament for ratification.

It`s a pity that such a senior citizen who is meant to inspire the young members of our country can turn out to be such a corrupt,boot licking,incompetent,tribal old woman and a chief Justive for that matter. SATA knew why h eapointed her to act exactly the way she did,knowing too well what she is capable of doing. Shameless old woman.
How will this nation remember Justice Chibesakunda? the most corrupt,dull,slefish,tribal chief justice our country has ever hard. You don`t fit to be called woman.COW is more appropriate.
SHAME ON YOU JUSTICE CHIBESAKUNDA,ONE DAY YOU WILL ANSWER FOR CRIMES.
When there is no Justice in a nation people use primitive ways to fight for their rights! REVOLUTIONS like the one that happened in Libya and Tunisia!
Dictators are killed like the way the French king was overthrown.
This puff faced INJUSTICE would could have saved Sata from his down fall by passing a fair judgement but she went to do what is her normal living, corruption and NEPOTISM and tribalism.
Here we go now! Sata and PF wont survive!
If Sata go to Europe he will definitely be arrested with a citizenship arrest!
I will definitely impose a citizenship arrest on Sata and Chella and Kabimba because these are criminals!
BA YALI. DOES IT MEAN YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND ENGLISH? A CLEAR RULING WAS MADE. THE ADVICE WAS GIVEN AFTER THE RULING WAS MADE. IT IS SOMETHING YOU TAKE OR NOT TAKE.
Lets say you and your younger sister fights over nshima, your mother comes and rebuke your sister and plainly put it that the meal is yours but then say “If I were you I wasn’t going to eat it,” What would you do?
Lombe Chibesakunda has neither moral nor legal obligation to be where she is. It is the moral aspect which saddens me
AND YOU THINK YOU HAVE BETTER MORALS THAN HER? SHE HAS EXCELLED IN HER CAREER BECAUSE OF HER GOOD MORALS. JUST READ SOME OF THESE STORIES AND AVOID EXPOSING YOUR FUUULISHNESS IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY
@yesamo, you can even excell with bad morals. Don’t forget that situations can make you lose your morals and this is what seems to have happened to our good mother.
Seven Judges sat to make a judgement for or against SATA. Two of them the Chief Justice and Deputy are directly appointed by SATA who is also their paymaster. Do u really think they could have ruled against their master? These two should not have been on the bench because they lack independence.
BUT WHO APPOINTS JUDGES TO THE SUPREME COURT? IS IT NOT THE PRESIDENT? DONT SHOW YOUR IGNORANCE. YOU ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THAT WHOEVER IS RICH MUST BE A SATANIST. AND MIND YOU ALL PUBLIC SERVANTS INCLUDING DOCTORS ARE APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT. YOU SHOULD READ WHAT THE LETTER OF APPOINTMENT SAYS.
even a fuuuul looks wiser when he keeps his mouth shut so the saying goes. So mike learn to keep your orifice closed if you dont know what you are talking about otherwise
Just like that the dark cloud engulfing Zambia grows, it won’t end well.
If you guys cannot learn to reason, then this is becoming like Zambia Watchdog. Nafileka because there’s nothing I learn except for nincompoops always trying to divide us. This is a damn shame. Nafileka until imwe bakolwe bonse from all the provinces accept we are all Zambians and it’s okey to differ.
Naya nokuya nomba imwe bakolwe ababemba, abalozi, abakuchipata, abatonga ne mitundu youse pantu twanaka nokutukana konse. Stupid *****s bonse imwe ne mitundu yonse. I love my country so wake up.
So Ms Masebo has another issue. I remember the one when she was in local government over those cheap black vehicles? she is still think they were she my classmate at UNZA. Room full of shoes and several sugar daddies bring breakfast, lunch and supper daily.
Girls could not stand that and always moving out of room. Anyway she knows it how to have it done in style.
Even this time she will go freely
Chibesakunda is hred to do dirty and immoral jobs for Sata(n).Thank God,their days are numbered.They will soon be judged by the Rightious Judge Jehovah God.
mmmmm, bantweno ninshi kanshi
