Kabwe Central Mp-Tutwa Ngulube and Kasama-central Mp-Kelvin Sampa at the PF-interactive Forum

PF deputy Chief Whip Tutwa Ngulube has claimed that Law Association of Zambia President Eddie Mwitwa must be impeached because he has been paid by a named organization to fight and embarrass government.

And Mr. Ngulube says Constitutional Lawyer John Sangwa must immediately recuse himself from the petition before the Constitutional Court regarding Bill 10 or be stripped of his status as State Counsel so that he cannot use it to fight personal battles against President Edgar Lungu.

On Monday, the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) dragged President Lungu, the Attorney General and the National Assembly to the Constitutional Court for attempting to illegally alter the Constitution of Zambia through Bill 10 of 2019.

But reacting to this, Mr. Ngulube said LAZ had agreed not to challenge the bill in court and the court action was proof that Mwitwa wanted to leave a trail of destruction before his term of office ends.

In an audio released on social media, Mr Ngulube said Mwitwa’s LAZ Council should be impeached.

“I would like to support the calls of State Counsel Sakwiba Sikota and other learned State Counsel who have come out in the open and said they would like us to impeach the LAZ President Mr Eddie Mwitwa for dragging the name of the association into serious disrepute and also for being used to fight political battles on behalf of a named opposition political party, the United Party for National Development.”

“It is very clear that Mr Mwitwa, whose term of office is coming to an end would like to leave a trail of destruction on behalf of the Law Association of Zambia. We therefore want to urge the general membership of the Law Association of Zambia to rise and remove Mr Eddie Mwitwa from office,” Mr. Ngulube said.

“I am also aware, as a Member of Parliament who is also a lawyer and fully paid up member of the Law Association of Zambia that Mr Eddie Mwitwa cannot impose his hatred of President Lungu on the general membership of the Law Association of Zambia. His personal views or vendetta must not be misunderstood to mean that he represents the views of the entire legal fraternity and the entire Law Association of Zambia.”

He charged that Mr. Mwitwa had been paid and challenged Mr. Sangwa to recuse himself from the petition.

“We are aware also that Mr Mwitwa has been paid by a named institution to fight the Patriotic Front government and also to embarrass government but we are also saying, both Mr Eddie Mwitwa and Mr John Sangwa SC were lawyers representing Mr Hakainde Hichilema in the presidential petition who failed to win the case in the ConCourt and are now trying to use the Constitution to protract their battle against His Excellency the President of this country Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.”

“We are also aware that Mr Mwitwa does not mean well for our association. Just like state counsel John Sangwa is State Counsel, he is expected as State Counsel to guide the state whenever he feels there is something that the state is not doing correctly. He is not supposed to use his rank as State Counsel to fight government or to fight the state. We therefore call upon the President to strip him off the status and rank of State Counsel and let him go and continue fighting on his own without hiding under the umbrella of State Counsel. We therefore demand that Mr John Sangwa should immediately recuse himself from the court proceedings or if he fails, we will petition the President to remove his rank as State Counsel so that he does not use his position and status in the legal fraternity to fight his personal battles against the President,” said Mr. Ngulube.

Mr. Ngulube also said Mr. Sangwa was being illogical by taking a petition before a court whose judges he insulted and publicly embarrassed.

He also stated that no other institution could regulate what Parliament does.

Mr. Ngulube has since urged the general membership of LAZ to rise and remove the LAZ President from office.

“We therefore call upon President Lungu to strip them off the status and rank of State Counsel,” emphasised Mr. Ngulube.

Mr. Ngulube further charged that despite its financial ills, the Law Association of Zambia paid legal fees to Mr. John Sangwa who is infact Mr. Haakainde Hichilema’s lawyer.

“Its embarrassing that LAZ can’t even afford to construct an office complex for the past over 20 years, and yet, they managed to pay fees to a lawyer who could even insult Con-Court Judges.”

He said LAZ was not an extension of the UPND Secretariat and as genuine members of the association. We will stop them from using LAZ like a political organ.”

“The Law Association of Zambia is a creature of an Act of Parliament and we expect that the leadership of the association should help government in governing the country and not to plunge it into unnecessary anxiety over matters we know can not lead the country anywhere,” said Mr. Ngulube.

The Kabwe Central lawmaker said there has never been any day LAZ members allowed Mr. Mwiitwa to “use our money to hire the services of Mr. Sangwa and demand to know who will pay the crippling bills Mr. Sangwa will bring.”

“John Sangwa is just one of us, not all of us and so we will not need his interpretation of the constitution especially that all of us had agreed to examine the entire constitution and understand the positives and negatives and not to rely on his interpretation,” he said adding, we will not allow LAZ to fight a sitting government using our money.”

Mr. Ngulube also explained that there was no institution, public of private, that had the authority to supervise or stop Parliament from making laws.

    • Tutwa is a replica of the first demon that joined the devil in rebellion against God, he is the little devil behind the architecture of misery and poverty in the country. Was this not the demon that created all the illegalities that led to the imposition of Lungu PF on the Zambians? These idiiiiiiiots thrive on illegalities and think that we are happy as Zambians? My little knowledge of the meaning of the name Ngulube is Bush Pig, exactly where this idioooot should be.

    • Mr Ngulube is being petty, personal and panicky. This is a National and legal and Constitutional issue. Ngulube should deal with Merits of the Case not but not with persons.This is a Constitutional matter which is threatening our Constitutional Democracy. Mwitwa and Sangwa are not only Zambian Citizens but have a Right to question the Constitutionlaity of Bill No.10 of 2019. Ngulube should leave Concourt to deal with this matter. What is he afraid of?

    • Tutwa is desperate to have the Amendment Bill No 10 passed by Parliament. Instead of impeaching Eddie Mwitwa most Zambians want Corrupt and Criminal ECL impeached as President of Zambia. The Lungu Impeachment Bill was blocked when Lungu rushed to the Courts. So why is LAZ being condemned for challenging the Constitutionlaity of Bill No 10 of 2019? Let Concourt hear the LAZ Petetion without fail.

    • Tutwa Ngulube is fighting the Messengers instead of dealing with the Message. He shouldn’t personalise the Petition. Defend the Amendment Bill No.10 in Concourt. It looks like Tutwa Ngulube knows that the Bill is illegal and unconstitutional. Tutwa Ngulube should be confident that the State and Speaker of Parliament will defend the Bill at Concourt. The Speaker of Parliament is in a serious Dilemma. Dr Matibini allowed Lungu to block the Impeachment Bill when Lungu avoided a Parliamentary 2/3 Majority voting Procedure and rushed to Court for protection. That Bill was suspended in Parliament and remains in Court. Now that the Amendment Bill No.10 of 2019 is properly b4 Concourt we are anxiously waiting to see how the Compromised Speaker of Parliament will handle this Bill bearing in…

    • So let’s be clear.
      Is it Mwitwa or Mwiitwa?
      Mwitwa or Mwitwaa?

      There is definitely a huge difference in the names.

      LAZ was not an extension of the UPND Secretariat and as genuine members of the association.
      True that.
      So double h is implicated, I am not suprised.

      Tutwa is being resonable, a patriot and saying it as it is.

    • Tutwa Ngulube is a confused Mediocre Lawyer who doesn’t know the Role of LAZ and his own Role as a Lawyer. He has forgotten that as a Lawyer he took an Oath to Uphold and Defend the Constitution of Zambia. Tutwa Ngulube and Matibini have forgotten their National Interests and Obligations to the Legal Fraternity in search of wealth doled to them by the Executive Arm of Govt. So sad indeed!

  2. Well said: “Mr. Ngulube also explained that there was no institution, public of private, that had the authority to supervise or stop Parliament from making laws.”
    But why should we be worried if this is true. So Parliament can make laws no matter how bad they are to the people. I thought its laws that can uplift the lives of Zambians and not those that are questionable. I fail to see the difference in what he is saying!
    Disaster!!!!

    • U are wrong! The Bill to Impeach Lungu as President was suspended when Lungu got an Injunction from the High Court to stop the 2/3 Majority Vote in Parliament on the Lungu Impeachment Bill. What is good for the Gender is Good for the Gander. Matibini should suspend the Amendment Bill Processes and wait for Concourt Verdict on the Petition. Concourt should deal with the legality and Constitutionlaity of the Amendment Bill No.10 of 2019 and the Procedure for 2/3 Majority Voting on a Constitutional Amendment Bill. The Speaker of Parliament must come out clean on this Bill.

    • Ignorance is bliss! U and Mr Ngulube don’t know the Mandate of LAZ. It is LAZ’ s Role to promote and defend the Constitution of Zambia and the Rule of Law. The PF sponsored Amendment Bill No.10 of 2019 is designed to mutilate the current Zambian Constitution. The LAZ Petetion to Concourt is meant to promote and defend the Constitution of Zambia against PF/NDF attacks. What LAZ, John Sangwa and others as Patriotic Zambians is to defend and uphold the Zambian Constitution. Ngulube doesn’t even know that as a Practicing Lawyer and LAZ Member he took an Oath to Uphold and Defend our nascent Constitutional Democracy in Zambia. Well done LAZ, Prof Muna Ndulo, John Sangwa and others.

  3. The only place where lawyers argue their points is at the Bar and before their learned colleagues the Judges who decide who’s truthful, anything else is just beerhall tantrums. So according to Tutwa whoever questions what Edgar is doing then that person must be humiliated? What kind of thinking is that? Not long ago General Miyanda asked Edgar not sign the Constitution with his eyes closed but he didn’t listen. You want amendments even before the ink dries? Lawyers are among the most useless self serving individuals. They’ve failed us. I don’t know what decorum they want when most of them are just criminals. You go and argue you case in Court not newspapers, useless chaps!

    • I am just wondering why LAZ didn’t seek the services of notorious Mutembo Nchito because he knows how to toy around with the useless Zambian Laws. He can make mince out of Tutwa and Mundubile. Please Mutembo consider to offer services even on pro bono basis, we want to enjoy the legal drama. There’s nothing to enjoy in Zambia now. We are so depressed that we are now being mocked by chamba smokers like Dandy Crazy.

  4. Mr.Tutwa, since PF believes in action only after payment it seems very probable that it is you who has been paid to say and do what you are saying and doing now and not Mr. Mwitwa. PF and ECL believe in money and can not believe that some Zambians can act out their own convictions. Sangwa is a more competent lawyer than most of you fake and corrupt lawyers in PF.He does not need the State Counsel status to be the competent lawyer that he is. Just because you assume Mr. Mwitwa to be Tonga ,you also conclude HH has bought him.Very cheap.

  6. I would never trust a lawyer who goes by two animal names! I mean, Tutwa is a shameless charlatan, everybody can see he is angling for a job with Lungu. In a system where even fools like Kapata, Mwila, Luo, Bowman etc can land ministerial jobs abena Tutwa kuwayawaya fye! What Lungu is trying to do is full madness, anyone who supports such masalamusi is mad in the head.

    • Tutwa Ngulube is a mediocre PF Lawyer who knows nothing about Constitutional Law and has no idea what is the Role of LAZ. LAZ’ s mandate is to protect the Zambian Constitution. Thru this Petition LAZ is asking Concourt to interpret the Amendment Bill No.10 of 2019. The Bill is illegal and unconstitutional and that is why LAZ is seeking Concourt’s interpretation of the Bill. Tutwa Ngulube thru the PF Lawyers should join the Case to justify the Legality and Constitutionality of the Bill. Mr Tutwa Ngulube see u in Concourt soon.

  11. Zambia, “Cry The beloved Country”. Sometimes we create our own cobweb and fail to come out of it. Issues that might have been simple and accommodating, we choose to go the confrontational way. Others feel because they are the ones on the driving seat, other stakeholders are not important and must dance to their tune. The stakeholders believe and rightly so that we are part and parcel to the Zambian equation. The results are what we see to day. Argument and counter argument. Leadership requires taking responsibility and accommodating even your waste enemies if at all you have them. How I long for the spirit of Dr. Kaunda who even in the mildest of hatred can sit down with his foes and find a solution to the challenge facing the Nation….

  13. Our leaders should learn to rise above our challenges and steer the ship in the right direction. People should learn to sit down and dialogue seriously so solve the challenges we are facing. Put aside your partisan interests and your concern to remain in power and do the right thing. How I wish to see the gallant sons of Zambia standing up for what is right. People like Mwanawasa who even if you hated you change your mind after listening to his speech. This thing of being PF and UPND will not solve Zambias challenges. We need to sit as a people and kill the lion that has risen and may not choose but kill any one it finds on the way PF or UPND or any body. If Zambia was at war our constitution has a provision for conscription. Men of integrity rise up and stand to fight for what is right…

Their time to be put in their rightful place will come. Right now all the upright people are the being vilified and nonsensical people are being glorified. Its truly a difficult time for Zambia such as we probably never had. PF!!!!. Who will pit you when your time comes? Your leader will go straight from statehouse to prison if he is lack that is. The worste case scenario is being killed through mob justice as he tries to rig an election in 2021.

Are we proud of our country or not? If we are why do we remain silent while a few greedy people destroy this country. Answer me this “if lungu saw something wrong in the constitution why did he go ahead and sign, and if he didn’t why want to change it again? “. This is being a big hypocrite including those that are supporting it.
