The Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has said that it will respect the decision of the Constitutional Court Cabinet Ministers to vacate their position immediately.

In a statement made available to the media by the party’s media committee, the party said that today’s decision gives credence to a robust and independent judiciary that Zambia has where the courts can enter judgments against the state, contrary to assertions previously made by the Opposition.

Earlier today the Constitutional Court has ruled that Ministers and their Deputies are in office illegally following the dissolution of Parliament.

The Ministers and their Deputies have been ordered to pay back all the salaries and other allowances they illegally accrued.

Below is PF Full statement

WE RESPECT THE DECISION BY THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT- SUNDAY CHANDA, ON BEHALF OF THE PF INFORMATION COMMITTEE

Lusaka, 8th August 2016 – His Excellency President Edgar Lungu had earlier guided that his administration would respect the decision of the Constitutional Court on this matter. In respecting the rule of law, the Patriotic Front (PF) wishes to state that it will respect the decision of the Constitutional Court. It is on record that the PF under President Lungu delivered a people-driven constitution which also establishes the constitutional court.

The constitutional court plays an important role in, among other functions, the interpretation of ambiguous clauses whenever these arise. Today’s decision therefore gives credence to a robust and independent judiciary that Zambia has where the courts can enter judgments against the state, contrary to assertions previously made by the Opposition.

This is yet another confirmation that PF trusts and respects the doctrine of separation of power as the basis of our thriving democracy and the backbone of our governance.

There may be those across the political divide who may wish to mislead the general public on many aspects not pronounced by the judgment of the Constitutional Court. Some of these vehemently opposed the enactment of the new constitution, but this is expected. In this regard, we wish to inform members of the public that the vehicles are still part of the Ministers’ benefits as such nothing changes, and that Ministers will continue to use their own facilities for campaigns.

Lastly, the Constitutional Court’s ruling confirms that President Lungu has presided over very strong independent institutions with his outstanding record in further strengthening our governance structure. He has exhibited this by delivering the first people driven constitution in 50 yrs. This constitution is the basis of the court that today has demonstrated its independence and delivered this judgement.

It’s a proud moment for any leader to see the maturity of a structure or system that has been one of the milestones of his first 18 months.

Like the constitutional court PF also has confidence in an independent electoral process and administration thereof. In this regard, we must emphasize that other political parties should commit to respecting decisions of these independent institutions such as accepting the results of 11 August 2016, when they lose.

Zambians across the divide can therefore walk with their heads high being fully persuaded that indeed we are a country of laws and not of men.

SIGNED: SUNDAY CHANDA, on Behalf of the PF Information Committee

    • I SMELL A RAT! WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. THE OPPOSITION SHOULD NOT LAY DOWN AND BE ALL JUBILEE WITH THIS RULING. TWO REASONS
      1) WITH THIS RULING THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT GAINS LEGITIMACY
      2) THE COURT MAYBE CALLED TO RULE ON OTHER MATTERS. IF WE READILY ACCEPT THIS RULING WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND BE PREPARED TO ACCEPT FUTURE RULINGS.
      WE STILL HAVE TO HAVE OUR GUARD AND BE READY TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL TENETS OF DEMOCRATIC PROCESS ARE ADHERED TO. YES THIS RULING EXPOSES LUNGUS INCOMPETENCE BUT STILL WE HAVE TO WATCH THIS WHOLE PROCESS BOTH IN PROCEDURE AND SUBSTANCE!!!
      CHIBE CHIBE LUNGU ALEYA.
      RAIN NO RAIN PF MUST BE VOTED OUT!!!!!

    • Do not worry, he accomplished the mission and the purpose of staying in office. The Court knew what they were doing by delaying the ruling. You are happy, but deep down you have been dribbled. Kambwili know he will back in Ministerial office in 2 weeks time.

      For us it is all smile chabe!!! Too late too little. Mission accomplished!!! Thanks our Ministers for work done while in your extended stay. Truly politics is not for kids!!

    • Opposition parliamentary candidates standing against these ministers have grounds to petition the courts if they losing in their respective constituencies.

    • (1)Let them pay every coin and petition them in the courts of law for those standing as MPs and eventually win. I see some serious issues here. It’s like getting money by pretence and after using it to accomplish your *campaign* goals you retain it back that it was just sitting idle all along. (2) Political players need to fully understand implications of the Constitutional court in a case of an electoral dispute.
      (3) This Chanda guy is behaving like a man caught committing adultery in a matrimonial bed by the wife and defending himself that it’s not really bad since he is the one who bought the bed after sleeping on the floor for many years (typical PF bully).
      Some serious issues to analyse here.

    • Buck Teeth Lungu, you always underrated ECL and he has beaten your so called intelligent HH. Even now, he has outplayed your HH and the entire UPND in this Ministers issue. The problem is that you do not look at the signs when driving! You have no ability to read the political chess game to how the previous move, or the sacrificed is but a bait for checkmate. Your UPND has so blinded with hate and self made greatness that you cannot see things how they are being played. It is another checkmate my friend.

      Stupidly you have swallowed the bait and are not looking!!! Why do you think this is being done now? think and look closely. Only the wise ca see this!!! What a shame you are you guys, so easy to beat!!! Good work PF and ECL. thanks for another victory. It is in the bag!

    • ECL is a lawyer and he knew that the outcome was going to be against him. If he allowed the ministers to vacate their offices, some, if not,most of them would have joined opposition. Remember the opposition boasted of the Armageddon. This I can call it a well played game by ecl.

    • Any decision, appointments these empty tins have made or put pen to paper can be challenged as its null and void…this gross incompetence of the highest order. If you are a Civil Servant and you saw your minister and his deputy making contentious decisions challenge these *****.

    • This means all those appointments, hiring, and firing, contracts, etc that these illegal Ministers appended their signatures during their illegal stay is annulled. Everything they did while in office illegally does not stand and can be contested. The implications of this are huge. The decisions made by the Defense Minister to use ZAF to ferry cadres, the decisions by Home Affairs Minister to abuse the police, The decisions and statements by the Information Minister, all these and many more should be contested and annulled and ask for PF and Edgar Lungu to pay for any costs accrued at government expense.

    • THIS RULING EXPOSES HOW ZAMBIAN AUTHORITIES JUST SIGN OFF DOCUMENTS WITHOUT HAVING READ THEM. OTHERWISE, CREDIT GOES TO ECL WHO BROUGHT ABOUT THIS ARGUMENT WHICH HAS BEEN UST CORRECTED BY THE CONSTITUTION COURT WITHOUT HONESTLY TELLING THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT THEY HAVE CORRECTED THE GRAMMATICAL ERROR OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH IN ITS PREVIOUS WRITTEN FORM (THAT IS IF IT HAS BEEN CORRECTED AT ALL), IT MEANT THAT MINISTERS HAD TO REMAIN IN OFFICES EVEN AFTER THE RESOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT. OTHERWISE, THAT ARTICLE MUST BE RE-PHRASED TO MEAN THAT MINISTERS HAVE TO VACATE THEIR MINISTERIAL POSITIONS AFTER PARLY RESOLVES.

      There is a provision in the new constitution about handing over to the next minister. who is this person to hand over. We are not surprised by the tribal ruling. The truth is that Government will appeal anf this ruling will be thrown out.
      Brace for another super tribe after ECL. Am sure it will not be a Tonga or any other inferior tribe but again and again it will be a bemba or easterner NEVER NEVER NEVER A TONGA MAFI YAKWE

    • Asigai, bwana fake Minister, you are celebrating with a lone tear on your left eye and trembling lips. We know deep down you want to scream out loud and curse Chagwa. Growing up I used to see such, a boy beaten pants down in a brawl but smiles and loughs it off in our presence but the bleeding nose and lips cannot lie. He finally rushes home and from afar we can hear him wailing towards his mothers lap for consolation. Such is you, writing all this pretense but wailing inside. This is just the beginning. Consequences for this decision are coming. Wait for it….!

You still expect them to happily vote for proven thieves and a dull president? I think you need to go home and relax. Let the shock wear off my friend because your really sound pitiful and pathetic and it just saddens. OK young man? Go now. 🙁

  4. THE PF AND PRESIDENT LUNGU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO HAVE MADE SUCH A DUMB MISTAKE THROUGH WHICH MILLIONS OF KWACHA HAVE BEEN WASTED. IT IS A SHAMEFUL DECISION AND INSTEAD OF BOASTING ABOUT IT TO SAVE FACE THE IDEAL THING TO DO IS FOR LUNGU TO RESIGN. IT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE. LUNGU MADE A BIG BLUNDER AND HE SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND THE RIGHT AND WISE THING FOR HIM TO DO IS TO RESIGN. HE HAS PUT HIS MINISTERS IN AN AWKWARD SITUATION AND SERIOUS PROBLEM AS THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO REPAY THE MONEY. LUNGU STRONGLY DEFENDED HIS ILLEGAL DECISION AND THEREFORE HE SHOULD BE MADE ACCOUNTABLE. IT IS F00LISH FOR ANY SENSIBLE PERSON TO STAND UP AND SAY BRAABRAA THIS BRAABRAA THAT. LUNGU MUST APOLOGISE TO THE NATION. THE JUDGEMENT IS A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN LUNGU AND PEOPLE SHOULD VOTE HIM OUT ON…

      Government has clarified that Cabinet will remain intact after the dissolution of parliament tomorrow until the new President is sworn. Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili said in an interview that the law is clear and Cabinet has to continue working.

      Dr Kambwili added that there is no contention on the matter that needs the interpretation of the Constitutional Court. He said taking the matter to the Constitutional Court will be tantamount to abuse of the court process. Dr Kambwili said Article 116(e) supports the continued stay of Ministers until a new President is elected.

      “There is no need for a debate here. The constitution in Article 116 is clear, Ministers continue until a new President is sworn in so even as Parliament dissolves, Ministers…

  5. It sounds so great, but we need to take this decision with certain reservations, if UPND is not careful, they will fall into this trap.
    Its preparation for what is coming on Friday. Today, ECL is washing his hands, he says he abides by the law, the ball is in UPND`s court, he needs to convincingly win or else, all efforts to contest the results will be hopeless and will be directed to this day`s decision

I can only imagine the irregularities these empty tins caused in management of Public funds another 5 years of Lazy Lungu will be suicide;he is a DRUNKARD, too LAZY and too INCOMPETENT, let him go and dance all he wants in Chawama.

  10. Too little too late, the job has already been done. I am sure the Constitutional Court delayed in its ruling to allow PF Ministers complete their campaigns.

    Lets go and vote on Thursday for PF. Thank you our Ministers for the good work and campaigns. The target for allowing the Ministers remain in office has been met. In part, it was a strategy that worked to stop the UPND to infiltrate the system. We have done our work and ready to celebrate victory. We knew exactly what we were doing. It is in the bag.

      Paying back will not just be the end of this…brace yourself for more by elections as losing candidates will have case as some of these ministers were visiting their constituencies under the guise of working visit. That’s more taxpayers funds being wasted.

    • There is one HH who was given a contract to privatise our national assets. This HH made deals under valuing these assests and gettin heavy payback from the buyers Zambia Cold Storage Board animals were sold as cheap as K10 each Good mature haelthy animals,some surely are HH’s farm now. This HH openly admitted that those were tough days for Zambians who needed the money he was stealing, but he said he came out of that period rich and smiling. Asking this rich man called HH how he amassed his wealth, he will never explain. One journalist SABC recently asked him this question several times in one interview, but this HH never answered. Why is he failing to answer this simple question?

      If this not someone who is morally corrupt, then there is no other!!!! I would rather vote for ECL on…

  11. This is looking more and more like a ploy by PF to establish fake legitimacy for the Constitutional Court, so that when there’s an electoral dispute, as there most likely will be,, it rules in their favour and they tell everyone that “You all saw how independent this court is when it ruled against us. We accepted the ruling, so UPND must also accept.”
    I’ve never seen such deviousness in so-called public servants.

  14. Lungu actually thinks he is clever and pulled a fast one here. He thinks he has dribbled the zambians. Like one blogger above said, by getting this compromised constitutional court to rule against him, he is hoping that he will get people to accept their independence and legitimacy. I can assure you this is nothing but a decoy. If someone seriously investigates these illegal ministers’ bank accounts, you will find that all the money they have earned since May 12 has been safely deposited , untouched in their savings accounts just getting ready to be paid back. Come on guys, even if lungu as a lawyer is too dumb to have realized that what he was doing was illegal, there are other legal minds if pf who would have known better and advised him not to do it
    Advise to lungu: You are wasting…

  19. The integrity of Lungu and his illegal Ministers has suffered an irrepairable damage. Lungu and these illegal Ministers are criminals who should be prosecuted for stealing public funds.As for Lungu he has no respect of our Constitution, his Oath of Office and Court Orders and for this reason he is not fit and proper to occupy the office of the President and therefore must resign. Zambians don’t respect a lawless President like Lungu and if he does resign we will give him a Vote of NO Confidence in the Po?ling Booth on August 11th. Pse patriotic Zambians lets all vote in huge numbers for HH and UPND and get rid of violent,lawlessness, thief and Chakolwa Lungu. GOODBYE LUNGU!

Zambians are waking up to a sad fact that their government for the last few money was illegal and stealing their hard earned tax payers money .This government is not different to a thief on the streets of katondo and should be treated as such .What makes more is that such illegality was promoted by Lungu a lawyer who should have been in the forefront stopping it .God help us ! Zambia has indeed gone to the dogs. Ka Chanda should be apologising to Linda Kasonde for calling her all sorts of names and using a foul language. Zambians should salute her for sticking up for what is right. As a matter of facts and principle the wages and allowances these thugs have been getting should be properly audited and taxed at the BOZ interest rates.

Zambians should salute her for sticking up for what is right. As a matter of facts and principle the wages and allowances these thugs have been stealing should be properly audited and taxed .

  34. They are planning for election petitions- accept this ruling so late – they want us to accept the ruling on the result petitions that will be delivered within a week of the results. Where is the bishops and prophets to speak the truth in love. God protected Zambia from selfish politicians.

  36. And you call Lungu a lawyer? No wonder he was suspended by LAZ. Lungu should know that his rule has been rejected by the Zambian people. let him not be deceived by the sangomas and his lusaka Pente prophets, bishops and apostles.

  39. It is a good decision but too late! I just hope that our people realise the implications. What this decision means that ECL abused his powers as president and defrauded the state of resources. It’s not just the allowances and salaries, it’s also the vehicles, staff, facilities, government network and authority of office. These people campaigned using their offices and officers. God forbid what will happen if ECL wins, given this brief experience with him as president. He is a lawless president, very much unaware of the consequences of his actions. Zambia’s bigger than any of us. Long after he’s gone, there will be need to protect its peace and integrity of its systems of governance. What he’s done is undermine the systems creating a precedence which is shameful. Let’s vote wisely…

  41. I hope everybody, and I mean everybody including PF supporters and ordinary PF members and the police etc have read or heard about this decision so that they vote along with UPND members and majority Zambians for HH. The writing is on the wall – PF kuya bebele! Lungu kuya bebele!

    • Unfortunately, we have already mind up our minds to vote for PF. We will live this matter in hands of the legal institutions. When it comes to 11, we are very geared to vote for our ECL and PF. UPND has problems because its support base remain the same while ECL and PF has improved. PF unlike in the last bye elections, many voters who had voted will in the general election come out in numbers to vote for ECL.

      It is very tough indeed for HH and UPND.

  42. Edgar Lungu and the entire PF have been made to eat humble pie. This is what happens when you allow power to get to your head. The ruling has really hit the last nail on the PF’s coffin. You can see how this Chanda the Propagandist has struggled to make it appear as though the ruling has not dented the PF’s image. Mr Chanda just admit that you have been disgraced as a government; stealing from innocent Zambians in broad daylight. These ministers knew it was illegal for them to continue occupying office even after parliament was dissolved. This is greed of the worst kind; theft of public resources with impunity. All these idio.ts deserve to go to jail. PAY BACK THE MONEY

  45. That respect for the decision of the court will only be manifested and make sense when Government recovers all the monies paid to the illegal office bearers during their 3 month illegal stay in office. I cannot believe this is the level we have gotten to as a Country
