Chief Justice Irene Mambilima has urged the seven newly sworn in Small Claims Court Commissioners to be impartial as they executive their duties.

Justice Mambilima said all the seven commissioner should abide by the Judicial Act No. 13 of 1999 in order for justice to prevail as they accomplish their obligations.

ZANIS reports that Justice Mambilima said this shortly after swearing in seven Commissioners of the Small Claims Court in the Supreme Court Conference Room today.

“To the new Commissioners, ensure that justice and reconciliation are on the center of your activities. When people affirm that justice has prevailed and are satisfied, that is the signal that you have achieved your duties diligently and always follow the Judicial Act No. 13 of 1999,”she said.

She implored the new Officers to always consult other serving Commissioners whenever, they face some challenges.

Justice Mambilima further pointed out that there is no doubt that the Newly sworn in Commissioners will expertly fulfil their duties noting that, the Judiciary is in the process of reviewing the Small Claims Court Act in order to enable Small and Medium Scale Enterprises(SMEs) to litigate in the Small Claims Court.

Meanwhile, Small Claims Court Chairperson, Sharpe Phiri said the court is designed to decongest the subordinate court.

Ms. Phiri disclosed that since its inception on 8th June 2009, the court has disposed off 22,410 cases which is a step in the right direction.

Among the seven Commissioners sworn in are Markford Mandela, Enerst Chulu, Mwaka Ngoma, Miyuna Katolo, Morgan Mukwasa, Chituwa Mwamba and Mabai Kasase.
