Share

High Court

The Law Association of Zambia has confirmed that High Court Justices Charles Kajimanga and Nigel Mutuna are well within their rights to challenge the constitutionality of the Chikopa Tribunal.

The two High Court Justice have again gone to court to challenge the constitutionality of the tribunal set up to probe their conduct and that of Supreme Court Judge Philip Musonda.

LAZ Honorary Secretary Linda Kasonde said the two Justices are entitled to commence the said proceedings as contained in the court action commenced by them.

“We confirm that we have had sight of the court documents. Without commenting on the merits and demerits of the action, the Council of the Law Association of Zambia wishes to confirm that Justices Charles Kajimanga and Nigel Mutuna are well within their rights and are entitled to commence the said proceedings to challenge the constitutionality of the Tribunal as contained in the court action commenced by them,” she said.

Ms. Kasonde further confirmed that the State as represented by the Attorney General is equally entitled to oppose the application if they so wish.

She said the association has been inundated with numerous press queries concerning the judicial review proceedings commenced by the two Justices challenging the constitutionality of the Chikopa tribunal set up by President Sata.

Ms. Kasonde has since advised members of the public not to speculate on the matter but to allow the courts of law to handle the matter without fear or favour.

  1. Chikkala Sata, just tell your Chikopo to go back to Nyasaland. There is nothing this a$$ is doing in our country. Just waisting tax-payers money for nothing.

    • chikopa is not normal,if it was me,would just leave quetly because the supreme rulling did advise the government not go aheard due to some issues…….

    • Please keep this site clean & avoid importing polluting watchdog, Freemason & sacrificial language here.

      Lets be civil.

    • In as much as we have freedom of expression,respect for elderly pip is very important.Sata may be wrong but surey does not deserve all these insults.

      The bible is very clear,”respect your mother and father so that you may have long life”.You get get cursed by insulting OLD pipo and you will DIE in your youth without achieving anything.

      Imagine if it were your own biological father being insulted like this,how would you feal?I pray to God the father that He may have mercy on you and forgive your sins and show you the right path to salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      In your ignorance and arogance,may mercy and Grace prevail….!

    • The problem with these sites is they filter rational contributions and allow dirt to dominate the blogs.

    • @ 1, Your pathetic ‘satanic language’ is not suitable to be used on this site!!!! ADVICE; Go and use at ZWD where your fellow known FREE MASONS will readily accept it!

      Here at LT, we should debate issues not insult or use unacceptable and inhuman language!

  2. What do you expect these are fellow Lawyers. Birds with the same feathers. Mr. President if they are trying to challenge you just take it the Mugabe way as if they are ones who votes. Its us the people who are grieved. Regards

    • BUT WHY ARE THESE THREE SUSPECTED CORRUPT JUDGES/ CRIMINALS SCARED OF BEING INVESTIGATED?!! IF THEY ARE INNOCENT WHY SHOULD THEY BE SOOOO SCARED OF THEIR OWN SHADOWS???? THE TRIBUNAL TO BE HEADED BY THE HIGHLY RESPECTED JUDGE CHIKOPA HAS NOT EVEN STARTED SITTING…!!

      WHY ARE THEY AGAIN TRYING TO DELAY/ BLOCK THIS TRIBUNAL. WE NEED JUSTICE TO PREVAIL ON THIS ISSUE! ITS A GOOD THING THAT PRESIDENT SATA CHOSE OR BROUGHT IN AN INDEPENDENT PERSON TO CHAIR THIS TRIBUNAL!

  3. so more adjaments as chikopa gets richer.now this one wil catch sata for breaking the constitution procedure on forming the tribunal.remember that this man swore to protect the constitution of zed.

    • Good question mwana.I thought i was the only one.The page was getting static despite them updating it with the latest news.It was beatable though using a different web browser.Eg from Mozilla to google chrome and vice versa.

  4. You won’t get fare judgment from judge chikopa, coz he wants to make up for the Money govt has spent on his luxurious stay in Zambia.

  5. If i see this guy i will take him down. Why should a chap from Nyasaland give us sleepless night

  6. What a govt. we have……..!Anyway, I blame the voters….bakooosweee!!!!!!

    • Iwe, stop insulting the Zambians! How do you refer to us as “bakosweee,” just because your preferred candidate will never president as he will ALWAYS be walloped pants down….??!

  7. There is simply too much insulting language on these sites, indeed, from loons and people from terrible formation- families. Isn’t some kind of control not feasible , surely?

  8. The quity are always afraid. We have so far seen legal gynastics. We yet have to see the reason/s as to what wrong the Judges did. Allow us to know. Do not frustrate the system. Time will brinh out the reasons and cause of that fear.

  9. Pervez Musharraff former Pakistani President is in court for having sacked the Judges.

    Sata must go the same route for abuse of authority & victimisation in relation to these three Judges.
