THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has said that it is gravely concerned at very serious and unsubstantiated allegations of corruption against members of the judiciary by the UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.

In a statement released to the media yesterday and signed by the President Linda Kasonde, LAZ said that it strongly condemned the making of any unsubstantiated allegations against any judicial officer.

 

Below is the full statement

    I Simply LOVE this lady , she is FAIR in her judgement, when she was against PF everyone said she is UPND now u can see that she is also blasting UPND. Come 2021 state house is YOURS MAMA, in the meantime their is a vacance in NAREP they need a president u could consider applying

      I am curious what the PF cadres here will react to this since to them this lady is pure UPND.

      That is the problem here among the bloggers, if you have a contrary view to PF, then you are UPND. That is wrong !!!
      What sense does it make for one who is UPND cadre to refute his affiliation from time to time? Please, just accept it, there are many people here (including Kasonde) who are out to support the good cause byr PF and castigate PF in case of bad things. So do not be selective, when it’s against your PF, then you are all out to attack someone and tagging them as opposition

      But LAZ have not commented on the corruption in Zambia.

      This is a fight that citizens have taken up themselves.

    This is the first sensible statement from Linda that I have seen since she became LAZ President. Maybe LAZ should have demanded evidence with as much weight as condemning the wild allegations. Maybe HH has got evidence. Maybe not. I think there is total division/confusion in the Judiciary. The fact that we have got two contrasting judgements in a space of hours from the same ConCourt means the whole thing is rotten. I am referring to the Presidential petition.

    THE CRITICISM IS LONG OVER-DUE. UNDER 5 IS STILL HARBOURING HIS USUAL HATRED AND BITTERNESS ON HIS THROAT. HIS UP BRINGING WAS I THINK VERY TROUBLED. PEOPLE WITH SUCH KIND OF HATRED AND BITTERNESS ARE NEVER FIT FOR LEADERSHIP. HH IS A KABILA IN WAITING IF BY A GRAVE MISTAKE GIVEN CHANCE. WAMUFIMBILA.

    This is what we expect LAZ to be doing.they must be neutral and criticise both PF and the opposition.
    This is the best ever statement made by LAZ.HH is a lost and an amature politician.i just wonder who advises this man.he keeps on insulting senior Govnt officials who may declare him a winner one day.surely how can the people he insults declare him president?HH must know that the people he call names are learned with families and need to keep their jobs.so they can do everything possible to ensure that HH loses elections in order for them to continue feeding their families!!!
    Before Michael Sata won,he was too good to many senior Govnt officials,hence winning.HH MUST KNOW THAT IN AFRICA “RIGGING IS REAL!!”but he keeps on digging his own grave everyday while hoping to win future…

    What happened? Everyone saw manipulation of the judiciary not long ago. When did all this change? Is this truly written by Linda? I smell a rat, or is it fishy?

    But he keeps on digging his own political grave everyday while hoping to win future elections,HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?ONLY DEVIL KNOWS!!
    HH is the Odinga of Zambia!!his bitterness is beyond any normal limit.HE MUST NOT BE ALLOWED ANYWHERE NEAR STATE HOUSE!!!ALL SENIOR GOVNT OFFICIALS SHOULD KNOW THAT THEIR JOBS WOULD GO AND GET JAILED IF BY ANY GRAVE MISTAKE HH WON FUTURE ELECTIONS!!
    so guys in authority,you would declare Kainde a winner at your own peril!!THE BEST FOR MOTHER ZAMBIA IS TO HAVE HH RETIRED FROM POLITICS BY VOTING FOR PF (OR ANY OTHER PARTY THAN HH’S UPND) IN 2021 IN LARGE NUMBERS!!

    The Supreme Leader HH of the UPND is a bitter soul and sadist who is rich but is a troubled man because of his involvement in the privatisation era where he became super rich…For HH to change he needs to repent his sins of greedy and give back to the community that which he acquired and belonged to the people… otherwise he will continue suffering with his bitter soul…

    African opposition industry only manufactures frustration. Raila Odinga contests the election results, the case goes in his favor then he withdraws from recon testing. In Liberia even before the counting is done the opposition is claiming fraud. It was the same with Sata. …he complained of fraud but kept quiet when he won.

    LAZ is “gravely” concerned. Now that is pretty strong, says much about under5 ever since he was released from Mukobeko and soon became known as Hakambwili Hichishimba.
    The under5 boy is on a path of accelerated self destruction. At that press briefing he said so much nonsense, only to back track and claim that he is commited to dialogue.

    Talk about shooting himself in the foot! UP.NDonkeys, can you not advise your under5 please? The boy does not impress anyone, talking about “I myself me”, telling us Mukobeko has made him stronger…stronger my foot! He needs a check up on his mental health, otherwise he will continue embatlrassing his Donkeys party everyday.

    Linda has now joined in the the PF choir and their favourite song: “… if you have evidence of corruption, bring it or report it to the ACC, police or in this case to the judiciary complaints committee… “.

    She knows she’s being simplistic here and cheap, perhaps trying hard to appeal to the PF and be seen to be neutral. Who doesn’t know just how corrupt the judiciary in Zambia are? Look how they bungled that HH petition and other public interest cases. And about reporting to the authorities, I mean is Linda now naive not to know that the police, ACC and other supposedly independent public organizations are as corrupt as they come, always bending to what Lungu wants. Which minister has ever been successfully prosecuted under this Lungu.

    Linda please never loose your…

    @18, if you can’t report to the authorities cited by LAZ, then shut your beak and stop making noise. Otherwise how shall we know whether under5 and his UP.NDonkeys ate making sense or nonsense? I am not aware of any statutory body within UP.NDonkey party which has been mandated to investigate corruption and other allegations.
    As for under5’s still born petition, the boy is being uneconomical or selective with the truth. Everybody knows whom under5 approached at midnight to illegally resurrect his expired petition that day when his lawyers abandoned him. It’s certainly none of the Judges that under5 has mentioned. Be truthful for once you Donkeys and your under5, we are not daft.

    And this under5 Donkeylet, every sensible Zambian (including some UP.NDonkeys) knows that he was locked up at Mukobeko due to his own st.upidity. The poor boy is trying to make a hero of this stu.pidity and everyone can’t help but laugh and giggle at him. Typical example of “The Naked Emperor”.

    Kasonde and LAZ are trying to buy favours from the Corrupt and compromised Judiciary and the Lungu Regime.When Concourt erroneously and illegally “dismissed” the Presidential Petition Ms Kasonde and LAZ kept quiet. LAZ said nothing on the Interpretation of 14 days and the refusal by Lungu to resign and handover Power to the Speaker of Parliament during the Petition Hearing process. LAZ did a disservice to the Nation for failing to advise on these matters. LAZ was an accomplice of miscarriage of Justice. Lungu controls both Concourt and JCC so nothing will come out of the compromised JCC. The Public lodged complaints against the 3 Concourt Judges but no judgment has been made by JCC so far. JCC is under orders not to release the Judgment on the Complaints. In fact ECZ, ZPS, Concourt, JCC…

    What would be good or sensible to HH? He has condemned everyone and anything in Zambia apart from something to do with southern province are we safe then? Awe mwandi sure. How perfect is he if I may pose this question? Always insinuating, insinuating and insinuations until the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. God forbids.

    Lungu connived with ECZ and Concourt to steal the 2016 Election. Concourt bungled the Petition under the direction of ECL. ECL refused to resign and handover Power to the Speaker precisely to influence the Petition Hearing. The Concourt Judges were acting on instructions from ECL and were bribed to “dismiss”the Petition. We must call a Spade a Spade and we wonder why Ms Kasonde and LAZ are being deceptive on the unheard Petition. Concourt and the Judiciary in general deserve to be condemned over the handling of the Petition. LAZ should not protect the Corrupt Judges. HH is aggrieved and we need to sympathise with him.
