Zambia Republican Party (ZRP) President Wright Musoma says the suspension of Martha Mushipe must be a lesson for the public not to abuse or make unwarranted attacks against Judges.
The Law Association of Zambia has suspended the practicing license of Martha Mushipe and has ordered the closure of the law firm, Mushipe and Associates which is solely run by her.
Mr Musoma says the decision by LAZ has come at a time when the public is engrossed in discussions of whether the Constitutional Court must cite Martha Mushipe’s client in that petition, Hakainde Hichilema, for contempt of Court.
He says the party is also concerned that the inertia by the Constitutional Court and the Director of Public Prosecutions to cite Mr. Hichilema for contempt of Court maybe sending wrong signals to the public.
This is according to a statement made available to media by Mr Musona.
