President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has urged lawyers to be the watch dogs that ensures that the rule of law thrives.

President Lungu said lawyers must keep in check the executive, judicial and legislative arms of governance in an effort to ensure all are alert and adhere to the tenets of the law.

President Lungu was speaking on Tuesday when he officially opened this year’s Commonwealth Law Conference in Livingstone.

He said Zambia is indeed honoured to have won the bid to host the prestigious conference.

Let us work together as we continue reforming our laws for the better. It’s a promise my Government is committed to keep.

“Our legal fraternity has indeed placed Zambia where it must be in the Commonwealth community of nations and beyond. We shall always endeavor to be a Country of laws,” President Lungu wrote on Facebook.

“As I officiated at the 21st Commonwealth Law Conference in our beautiful tourist capital, Livingstone under the theme “The rule of law in retreat? Challenges for the modern Commonwealth”, I did so with a lot of pride that our visitors will help tell a story of the Zambia they experienced,” he wrote.

“As a Latin maxim goes: “Fiat justitia ruat caelum” which means, “Let justice be done though the heavens fall”, I urge practitioners to take up the mantle, to be the watch dog that ensures that the rule of law thrives. They must keep in check the executive, judicial and legislative arms of governance in an effort to ensure all are alert and adhere to the tenets of the law,” he prodded.

    • “Lawyers must keep in check the executive, judicial and legislative arms of governance in an effort to ensure all are alert and adhere to the tenets of the law” .

      What does he mean? When were lawyers given such a mandate? Besides Zambian lawyers are greedy cowardly individuals who wouldnt take up a community cause

      Please write in English. You can’t even spell a local Zambian name. I hear a gecko stole your brains and stuffed its own into your skull.

  1. This is the joke of the day ,
    I had to remember this is not April’s fools day.

    Lungu is a corrupt theif. He does not even deny this.

    All his orders to PF thugs to observe a cease fire are now clear to see why…..

    There was a gathering of world lawyers in Livingstone he did not want. He did not want them to see the PF violence.

  4. Says this Charlatan, sorry excuse of a President, Jona Chagwa, who embezzled a Widows cash.
    Jona surrounds himself with crooked, blood thirsty semi illiterate thugs like Chimpyongo, Kaizer, & Grade 7 -Davies Mwila.
    This cabal has no capacity to lecture peace loving, law abiding Zambians about upholding the rule of law, as they wouldn’t know law, even if it slapped them in the face!!
    Those qualified, like the Sesheke Cops, who made a good attempt @ upholding the rule of law were, hounded, persecuted, & dismissed, by this same Cabal led by Jona Chakolwa Chagwa.
    Ba Jona, if you have nothing tangible to say, keep the rubbish from your alcohol soaked brain to yourself!

  7. Says a man who refused to step aside after he was petitioned in the rigged 2016 election results. These politicians just read these speeches which are written for them without even understanding what they are reading

    • Remember up to now Kawalala Chakolwa Chagwa, has not adhered to the Con Court ruling for all money wrongly paid to his Cadre P.F officials after Parliament was dissolved, should be paid back A.S.A.P into Government coffers.
      Yet this ex Kachasu drinker Jona is giving advice on how to uphold the law in Zambia??

  9. And this is a government that has gone against the rule of law more than any other government in the history of this country. Today they are very powerful as they control everything in the country but time is ticking. One day they will pay for their misdeeds, no matter how long it takes.

  11. Just READING comments from UPND STOOGES,full of bitterness and HATRED.

    As people like……spaka spend 24 hours displaying their BITTERNESS and HATRED for ECL and PF.Your psychology is very clear as SNOW.Its like you have been given a mandate to manning LT.

    Even if Ayatollah can be given chances now to rule this country ,bitterness and hatred can go to the peak for UPND.

    The background paper is SEEN EVERY DAY for HH\UPND and Anglo American.Sad that only 0.01 percent Zambians knows that BUT GOD almighty can’t allow majority Zambians to suffer anymore especially in the hands of HH and his imperialists.

  12. Kudos and Mr P, known as palibhezelu .there are times when even the most vocal and useless or useful fools stop and think why are we shouting for nothing. We supported BashiChilufya baSata because of his track record of doing things. We could donate some money to a political party that many of you who are trying to show that your the real greens detested to associate with. KUDOS, you used to insult people who were supporting basata as brainless and retarded. You used to Sata will never be a president of Zambia . This is not a shall of accusing you but there comments to see from the electronic and printing media platforms from 2009 upward till Ruphia Banda lost. You supported Mr Ruphia like a supporting beam during construction of a tall building. Today, it Lungu, my views are that…
