Prof Muna Ndulo
Prof Muna Ndulo

Soon after the Electoral Commission of Zambia announced its final results in favor of Lungu, Prof. Ndulo warned that Zambia was becoming a failed state. On September 12, Lusaka Times published a detailed article from Professor Ndulo, addressed to the three Constitutional Court (ConCourt) Judges who reversed their decision on HH’s petition. Prof. Ndulo argument is summarized in the first two paragraphs:

“There can be no denying that Zambia’s Judicial system, especially the Constitutional Court, is in a crisis. It has failed to play its constitutional role. I would agree with Professor Hansugule’s assessment that the Zambian Constitutional Court displays unbelievable mediocrity and is an embarrassment to Africa and the rest of the world. In this article I argue that the September 5 decision of Justices Sitali, Mulonda and Mulenga to overturn a decision of the full bench was illegal, irregular and unprofessional and has no legal effect.”

Prof. Ndulo’s article followed Prof. Hansugule’s piece which condemned the ConCourt’s decision. The article further claimed that his once “friend” Lungu stole the election from his “younger brother” HH—and Lungu “knows it”. Lungu, he argued, “has unilaterally barred the CC from hearing the petitioner in line with well-articulated principles insisting on an independent judiciary.” There is nothing new to Prof. Hansugule claims—HH, UPND and the Zambian Watchdog have repeated these claims.
I have respect for the two Professors and I believe they are among the cream of Zambian intellectuals. However, I am surprised that they ignored the first U-turn of the ConCourt, when it reversed its decision to dismiss the petition on Friday 2, 2016. HH was excited that the ConCourt had reversed its official decision, and would hear his petition on Monday. But when the same Court reversed its reversed decision, he cried foul.

Sadly, the two learned scholars did not address the Friday September 2, 2016 ConCourt U-turn—which is equally shocking. In legal terms, the Court needed to cite the section of the Constitution under which its decision to reverse its initial ruling was based—which in fact does not exist. Since the precedent of reversing decisions was set on Friday when HH complained, it should not surprise us that the ConCourt did it again on Monday September 5, 2016.

In addition, the two scholars failed to discuss some bigger problems with the Constitution—14 days and the finality of the ConCourt decisions. I fully agree with Prof. Ndulo—we face a constitutional crisis. This crisis, however, is not due to Lungu’s victory or the ConCurt’s decision, but the national Constitution. All well-meaning Zambians need to accept that the current Constitution needs straightening if it is to stand the test of time. I realize that those who participated in the drafting of the Constitution simply cut and paste various sections from other nations’ Constitutions and legal documents without thinking through the legal implications of the same. It is for this reason that HH must be applauded—he allowed us to see the holes in our Constitution. To cite Constitution, while ignoring those which justify the Court’s decision is nothing but mere partisan politicking.

It is saddening that scholarly analysis of the issue is blinded by partisan politics as opposed to independent legal analysis. In my article published before the Supreme Court’s ruling on HH’s attempts to halt the inauguration of Lungu, I argued that the Zambian Constitution does not allow appeals related to presidential petitions: “Clause 101: 7, and 103: 4 state that the ConCourt’s decision “is final.” These clauses are further stamped by Article 128: (4) “A decision of the Constitutional Court is not appealable to the Supreme Court.” Thus due to the un-appealable clause, HH, GBM, the UPND and its allies can make as much noise as possible—but the case is constitutionally closed!” Supreme Court Justice Nigel Mutuna agreed with my reading of the Constitution when he dismissed HH’s case with the words, “decisions made by the Constitutional Court cannot be reversed by the Supreme Court.”

Finally, we do not have the legal framework for addressing the Presidential petition and neither do we have any case in our short history to employ as an example. We may refer to other courts in other parts of the world as General Miyanda did, but those nations’ legal structures are equally different. Since the ConCourt itself is a new legal entity in the nation, we need to address how it relates to the bigger legal system in the nation—we need to work together to resolve this crisis.

    • HH was excited that the ConCourt had reversed its official decision, and would hear his petition on Monday …..

      You talking nonsense Kaoma

      That was the only recourse of HH at the time. He was given no other choice as an alternate to this meant they were going to dismiss the petition alotgther.

      The truth which you are conviniently refusing to point is the change of mind of the judges that is what has brough about credibility of the courts and the whole things which I would refer to now as a scandal.

      You claim you respect the preffesors, no you dont, if you had any ounce of credible iota in you, you will know deep down your soul you are talking balderdash. I am sure you know what that means.

      Thanks

    • “Finally, we do not have the legal framework for addressing the Presidential petition and neither do we have any case in our short history to employ as an example.”

      We are using a Common Law and thus cases done elsewhere can be referenced and used as examples. Read the three judges judgement that dismissed the petition and you’ll notice the judges used Kenya judgement as a reference point. Don’t go for a discussion with those who have spent their life reading and promoting law. Just tell us about how your Reverend-ship has become lucrative under PF bribes.

    • You don’t expect a Rev of Kapya Kaoma stature to agree with Prof Ndulo. They are incompatible as usual.
      Rev Kaoma is quoting only from the constitution and fails to even quote a single verse of the Bible!? Yet inquisitively and sweating hard on air gasps in “lecturing” Law Professor Muna Ndulo about the constitution is a fallacy of those pretending to be in the sheepskin, when they are wolves. Its like a drunkard telling a non alcoholic how to be sober, its ridiculously hilarious.

      TIME TO WORK FELLOW UPND, BUT KICK OUT HH NOW!CONVENTION!
      The message is loud and clear. I hope UPND generals are meeting with other top leaders soon to chart the way forward. We need another leader now. The song has been sung a million times. There is no way HH can abrogate our Constitution going beyond the prescribed limit of years for Party Presidency. The Convention must be held and we democratically elect a new leader. The man came in through the back door (money) and we have all seen the mess. 2021 WILL BE A WALK OVER ON PF. We shall overcome, but not with HH. As you know, I honestly hate this persistent LOSER including his style of losing(Always)!

    • The so called reverend is looking for some Kwacha. Maybe the thief Lungu can make him head of his ministry of religion. No wonder Africa is laughing at us. Courts filled with political prostitutes, the Bemba Buffon as president and this snake oil salesman as Reverend. Does he really think he can match intelligence with Oxford and Harvard educated Ndulo or with Hansugule for that matter? Go read Ndulo’s cv and weep. The Bible says Hosea 9:9 They have sunk deep into corruption, as in the days of Gibeah. God will remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins.” Your day is coming

      If they can confirm that Article 101 is the relevanto ne in the first ballot while Article 103 relates to the second ballot, they will redeem their reputation a great deal.

      Any other argument should cause the institutions they now represent great embarrassment, & a possible premise to review their status.

    • @Mushota & Moses don’t argue like typical UPND cadres. The Constitution says the petition will be concluded with 14 days. The judges were wrong to have extended it by 6 days Saturday and Sunday inclusive. They told the world that the petition will end on Friday 2nd Sept when the 14 day came to lapse but surprisngly they extended. So a reversal of what they had earlier agreed upon was to correct the wrong they created earlier. Tongas and people like you wanted it to go your own way. Now that the petition out can we hear HH tell us how is votes were stolen in Luapula, Northern Eastern, Lusaka, Muchinga, Copperbelt Provinces? Can HH also tell us how his votes were stolen in Southern (Dundumwezi), North Western and Western provinces?

      Lawyers have always disappointed when the nationd depends on them for guidance

      1. When our two presidents died, there were conflicting provisions which in my view were mis-interpreted.

      For example, ECL as acting president then could only hand power to a president elect, not another acting president. But our lawyers got it wrong.

      Similarly, only a person who qualifies for the office of president could act as president, yet they let Scott who did not qualify to act as president.

      So be careful about hose who seem to have qualifications, especially Lawyers.

    • But both Hansungule and Ndulo are Tongas. Does that mean anything to you? Chibomba and Munalula are Tonga and Lozi respctively does this also mean anything to you? Jack Mwiimbu, Vincent Malambo are Tongas, Eddie Mwitwa, John Sangwa, Robert Simeza are from Mmembe’s cartel. The cartel were going to be in control had HH won. Thank God it never worked for them.

  6. The Analysis by Prof Ndulo is certainly not for cadres, because each time a cadre fails to argue scientifically (with references), he or she resorts to the easiest way: accusing the other person of being partisan. That is the easiest argument all cadres are capable of in a failed debate.

  7. Ati ‘Reverend’ chakuti chakuti! You Pharisee, you hypocrite, you whitewashed tomb, you see injustice and turn the other way. The Lord abhors injustice. The two professors’ legal arguments are very sound at law; there is nothing partisan. You fail to make an equally compelling legal and intellectual argument, so like other pf vuvuzelas, you hide behind ‘partisanship’. Demolish the two professors’ legal arguments with your own legal arguments, then may be we can take you seriously. Ecl breaches the constitution by clinging on to power instead of handing over to the speaker of the NA, you turn a blind eye. Its people like you who help build dictators. Yes, dictators use the democracy ladder to climb to the top, and once on top, they destroy the ladder, with people like ‘Reverend’…

  10. My understanding of Reverend Kaoma’s essay, he seems to agree that the judges involved in this case were not competent and behaved atrociously. How then does he go on to try and dispute the basis of Professors Hasungule and Ndulo’s assertions? Our country’s in the process of trying to consolidate a budding democracy. Openness, integrity and awareness of the democratic tenets is essential for our country to move forward. The judiciary is a critical institution in that vision. What we have now is a perception that party politics reign supreme over everything else. This is not about HH or ECL, but about the integrity of our judicial systems. We’ve seen party constitutions being cast aside many times i.e FTJ and LPM(MMD), HH(UPND), etc. There’s a terrible culture of poor respect for due…

Mistakes have been made all round; the judges have been under extreme pressure (hence why I do NOT subscribe to the wholesale call for their resignation or dismissal without a hearing though there is need to get to the bottom of everything to do with this petition fiasco – mission should be to find the real smoking gun!)

No hearing = No determination; b. No determination- No judgement; c, No judgement = No justice; d. No justice = No conclusion of HH/GBM Petition Number 00031 of 2016.
    2. On the dismissal of the Petition on 5th Sep: ask yourself if the ConCourt declared that they had no mandate after midnight of 2nd Sep, what was their mandate to dismiss the Petition on 5th Sep? 3. The 14 days issue: Prof Ndulo has distinguished the Zambian and…

FYI: HH completed his application to get legal representation at about 23.15. The Court retired for deliberations and re-emerged at about 23.57 and delivered a short ruling to extend the proceedings and continue from Monday 5th to 8th Sep before midnight!

But if you are serious about challenging me post your ARGUED PAPER on 1996 Constitutional amendment, and as Accuser state your case against me and that amendment. Then I, the Accused, will answer your allegations. To assist you in your research read the Chona Commission, Statutory Instrument Number 46 of 1972, reported on 15th Oct 1972, which formalised the introduction of the One Party State. While researching find out why KK banned for 30 years public access to the Commission evidence! I await your paper with great interest and hunger for further knowledge from you///

  17. So far it seems to me that the direction a country will take will depend on the character and morality of a President you have. I say this because we are clearly seeing officers doing what is not right in obeying instructions from “above”. A good example is the Police service that goes doing wrong things to obey the master. If the allegations UPND have about the just ended election are anything to go by, then we can safely say the judiciary is compromised too. Is there anything we can do to have services that will stand and not obey a wrong instruction from the Executive. What does it take to have officers denying to do a wrong thing from the “boss” above. This is frustrating me, to say the least.

    Just another complement from me for BGGM that I really wish we had even just 100 politicians alive today like him, this country would have been headed in the right direction. This man knows his stuff, and he is very objective and impartiality that is missing in our today’s politicians. Clearly whatever mistakes he may have made in the past, he’s really making up for them right now. He reads widely and even participates in internet blog banter full of insults from keyboard anonymous ‘warriors’. Breath of fresh air indeed!

Would not be surprised to find that one HH bought them behind the scenes and they are up to deceiving the right thinking Zambians. I feel for the young undergraduate and postgraduate student lawyers under these gentlemen, They are not just sincere. Certainly a taste of sour grapes is percived when you read articles of the two gentlemen. General Miyanda is also slowly but surely drifting there.

    HH is a danger to Zambian democracy and the earlier UPND reforms the better.
    May I request the law firm that applied to the ICC for HH and GBM to be cited for crimes against humanity to follow up the case and keep us posted.
    HH and GBM must get punished by the international Court of Justice to serve as a lesson to other politicians in Zambia.

  21. WHAT I HATE IS THE DISHONEST BY HH AND UPND. YOU KNOW VERY WELL THAT YOU LOST THE ELECTIONS BUT SINCE YOU ARE BAD LOSERS, YOU DID NOT WANT THIS TO GO DOWN JUST LIKE THAT. THE AIM OF HH WAS TO DISCREDIT THE ECZ. PEOPLE ARE SAYING HH WAS NOT GIVEN TIME. THIS IS VERY UNFORTUNATE. THE LAWYERS OF HH KNEW THAT HH WAS NOT STANDING ON SOLID GROUND. WHAT THEY WANTED WAS TO DRAG THE WHOLE COURT PROCESS INTO A VERY LONG WINDING , UNENDING PATH WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF DISCREDITING THE ELECTION BECAUSE THEIR CLIENT HAD LOST.

    Exodus 20:16 “YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOR”
    Exodus 23:1 “DO NOT SPREAD FALSE REPORTS”
    Deuteronomy 5:20: “YOU SHALL NOT GIVE FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOR”
    Proverbs 3:30: “DO NOT…

  26. Eurobond has been used already and has finished that is why IMF is coming in to help LUNGU and Zambians stay afloat
    Cutting all food and fuel subsidies. Cutting civil servants jobs, police and army sectors need reducing in number. Cutting in health and education sectors too.

How could Edith Nawakwi lose elections in her own home town? It is a joke they PF played on the opposition. Aljeevera have information on this read their news today

  31. The President of Zambia has been sworn in, amidst speculations of a disputed legitimacy?? He seems to be enjoying every moment, and it’s time we call upon him, to work with the United Nations Security Council, USA, UK, AU, ICC, and other International organization to hold his members accountable for the crimes against humanity they inflicted on us, and to help him reform the dysfunction in all Zambian state institutions. I urge the President to disband the LAZ, as its relevance is non e is tent but most Zambian lawyers are responsible for abusing the court process and running organized criminal syndicates amongst state institutions. To me it is a criminal organization which has failed to hold its bandits accountable for the banditry inflicted on us.

    Corruption in Zambia is…

  32. Hansangule and Ndulo are Tongas. Their sources are Muvi TV, some radio in Namwala, Dog Watchers in Zambia, the Post, and Hazalusa Hagain. They are not only HH sympathizers but have a certain condition known as delusional. They can’t add or subtract.
