Lusaka Lawyer Eddie Mwitwa
Lusaka Lawyer Eddie Mwitwa

The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) President Eddie Mwitwa has renewed the process to summon Justice Minister, Given Lubinda, and Attorney General Likando Kalaluka to testify as witnesses for LAZ over the Constitution of Zambia (Amendment) Bill No. 10 of 2019.

Meanwhile the LAZ boss has alleged the process that culminated into Bill 10 at the National Dialogue Forum was undertaken under the patronage of both Mr. Lubinda and Mr Kalaluka, whom they want as their witnesses.

Last week, the full bench of the Constitutional Court threw out the summons which were issued to both Mr. Lubinda and Kalaluka on the basis LAZ had not obtained the leave of Court to issue the summons.

The full bench had also issued a direction that the Court will not accept any other applications made after 5th November, 2019. Without applying for leave of the Court to alter its directions as issued, the body of lawyer decided to file its application on 7th November, 2019.

The application is set to be heard before Constitutional Court Judge Enock Mulembe on the 11th November, 2019.

The full bench has set 12th November, 2019 for hearing of the main petition filed by the Law Association of Zambia and Chapter One Foundation.

    • Sangwa is full of applications. Why defy court directions? Am sure he has ready appeal to full bench as way of wasting time.

      These are the same character of lawyers who misled h². Did a lot of preliminaries in the lapse of time.
      Always failing to beat the deadline. Very inconsistent, unpunctual and tempting lawyers who want the defendants themselves to be witnesses.
      Its Like, I sue you and you will be my witness.
      Yaba! Amalawyers bena bachabe, yangu!
      It’s only prudent that these quacks withdrawals this upnd litigation. Mwitwa, you are just being used.

  2. Let Laz stop abusing court resources. Let’s have petition heard. You went to Court alone and now u want the State to help u as witnesses. Wasting our time now

  3. Last kicks of a dying laz. Useless applications and defiance. If law body itself is one acting like this where does it leave us?

  4. LAZ does not know what it wants. 101 pages of a petition and they had zero witnesses? What do they really want? Cabinet Reports on Bill 10, Memos, and proceedings? But I got a solution for LAZ since minister and AG cannot be compelled to disclose what was discussed in Cabinet:

    NDF was held under an Act of parliament, was open to public, had its own leadership, and LAZ were part of them.

    So why not ask those NDF leaders to testify themslves than asking AG who was not there? Doesnt make sense at all. Why would the court entertain an application for leave to summon witnesses to a process whose record is in the public domain? That Mwanza guy was brilliant spokesperson at NDF.

    Laz is behaving like a lost or stray dog especially with Sangwa making countless applications. This is same…

  5. Same Sangwa who made HH lose time in presidential petition. LAZ is luck those judges fear him coz he told them they are inexperienced and unqualified. This whole Petition against Bill which is a proposal should not have been before the Court in first place. Let LAZ members end this drama.

    When u hear HH praise you for filing petition like LAZ did, then know something is wrong with your petition. Let’s discuss Bill 10. Remove what we dont want and pass good provisions

  6. Can we have some legal opinions here please. Where is Munshya and Hansungule? Most of the quack comments are just emotions running high. What does this that is happening mean from a legal standpoint? What chance has LAZ got to win this case if at all? Tired of all this partisan noise mwe…

    • You missed fake prof. Ndulo.

      At this point this crazy lazy LAZ will have to either disband or rebrand because the brand name, LAZ, which also needs a brandy new name has hit a snag with its current lazy clazy lawyers at the helm in the bandwagon limelight of legal brains and it needs bandy new leadership that is free from the influence of the bare bones, the lifeless deads aka upndead.

    • Hansungule, by his name chabe, u know which camp he belongs. That Munshya is slowly turning himself a vuvuzela for H² and disgraced law body, PF has effectively bought a bunch of lawyers and law students too. So entire legal profession in Zambia is a disgrace including these quacks in Diaspora. This case didnt make sense from second it was filed. Zambians must just move on with business as usual.
