Time for Election Campaigns is a Serious Time and Not a Time for Courtroom Jokes, John Sangwa told

Share

Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) Presidential candidate Sean Tembo has advised State Counsel John Sangwa to find something worthwhile to do with what he described as his clearly abundant spare time, instead of hopping from one court registry to another, filing frivolous lawsuits.

In a statement posted on social media, Mr Tembo said that the State Counsel should be advised that a time for election campaigns is a serious time and not a time for courtroom jokes.

PeP STATEMENT No.36 ISSUED ON FRIDAY, 21st MAY 2021: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1. As Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP), we are in receipt of a lawsuit filed by State Counsel John Sangwa on behalf of the little-known Legal Resources Foundation in which our Presidential Running Mate, Mr Henry Muleya is the 3rd Respondent. Our quick perusal of the issues raised by the Petitioner drives us to the conclusion that this is a frivolous petition that is intended to waste the time of running mates and their political parties during this critical campaign period.

2. As Patriots for Economic Progress, we wish to take this opportunity to appeal to the Judiciary to come up with regulations that would protect citizens from frivolous lawsuits from otherwise mentally unstable individuals that are seeking unwarranted relevance in society. It is our submission that the court system should not be converted into a den for busybodies to harass innocent citizens.

3. As Patriots for Economic Progress, we further wish to take this opportunity to advise State Counsel John Sangwa to find something worthwhile to do with his clearly abundant spare time, instead of hopping from one court registry to another, filing frivolous lawsuits. The State Counsel should be advised that a time for election campaigns is a serious time and not a time for courtroom jokes.

Thank You and May God Bless the Good Citizens of the Republic of Zambia and Our Ailing Nation.

YOURS SINCERELY
SEAN ENOCK TEMBO (SET)
PARTY PRESIDENT
PATRIOTS FOR ECONOMIC PROGRESS (PeP)

  3. The PEP president should be advised that time for election campaigns is a serious time and not a time for bootlicking sitting Presidents. Sean Tembo is being advised to find something worthwhile to do with his clearly abundant spare time, instead of hoping he would be appointed into Lungu’s government. He knows he stands no chance of winning in the forthcoming elections and all he can do is suck up to those he considers political heavyweights

  4. Laws do not stop applying during election campaigns. John Sangwa is not in any election race. He’s a lawyer passionate about the rule of law.

  5. John Sangwa has fallen on hard times financially. Not only has his marriage of over two decades crumbled. His chicken business has gone under after he borrowed heavily and failed to pay back. Remember the temporary withdrawal of his practicing certificate? Friends talk about his lack of a proper house for himself. All these woes may help explain his rather erratic behaviour of late.

  6. What do you expect from clowns like that under 5 hh. He is paying f00Iish lawyers to do his dirty work. However he doesn’t realise that these lawyers only care about money. For a party that claims they are going to win elections, the upnd seem to be very desperate to use backdoor methods to not go to the polls. Is ECL Such a huge threat to you bab00ns ?

  7. And this man calls himself a president of a political party….. what a joker. Why does the constitution provide for petitioning of a candidate? Actually Sean you are the biggest joke with plenty for nothing to do time.

  8. Bravo to Sangwa, Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) and individual lawyers, where and why are you hiding. Church leaders you are fashionably quite, some of you were loud on PF church empowerment funds. Where and why are you hiding?

  10. An examination candidate who didn’t prepare adequately for the exams basically disturbs, agitates and provokes boh other candidates and examiners. Such is life.

  11. THE LAW IS THE LAW it will not wait for you to finish eating nshima first before it visits you. The election process itself is a legal process and it must be done right. I am disappointed with bullet point Sean Tembo here. Would you let a non-Zambian file his nomination and not petition him because it is election time? If Lungu has broken the law, he must be sanctioned. Let the constitutional court con us again, we will be fine with that.

  12. John Sangwa has never won a single case…just mention one case…his partner Mr Simeza is a more experienced Lawyer than this attention seeking moron of a Lawyer John Sangwa….i have known him from way back when he was at Woodgate House along Cairo…

  13. SET is the one who is mentally retarded. Any Zambian citizen has the right to petition any candidate who doesnt meet the constitutional threshold to stand for elections.

  14. Rule of law is what is going on here. Do not cede anything. Let the courts record their actions cifukwa soon even they will come to account. Even courts make mistakes and this concourt must be careful. Iwe PEP Stores President uzisunge!

  15. Just start scrounging for K95 pin & how you will again have to organize 1,000 supporters in all 10 provinces in case you lose this petition. It’s an open secret you struggled filing in as president candidate. Viva SC JS…..

  16. This hopeless boy will plunge this country into trouble one day. let him this nonsense and concentrate to raise money to offset his debts in a legit way.

  17. Ironic indeed…Seann Tembo talking about jokers when he is a Party President with zero representation on the ground not even ward councillor…really laughable!!

  18. Sangwa has sued ,upnd, pep ,pf,socialist and dp over the issue of running mates ,he wants the disqualified, so tembo is just defending his running mate a mr muleya. Upnd diasporans should learn to read before explesing your ignorance here.

  19. Sangwa is within his democratic right, he is following the civilized route of going to court and is not throwing any stones. How does PEP want to campaign, when there are ONLY two parties in Zambia, have they just jumped off the bus and don’t know what is happening on the ground

  20. Just follow the supreme law of the land and be open to listening to those that intelligently have capacity to break it down for one to understand! Let personal fears not be part of reasoning to let our ignorance of governance by law throw spanners into the enlightenment Sangwa wants to share with every citizen! The courts understand thus why they are allowing the petitions! As for Sean Tembo he can have his day for being akin some hospitality agent with saucy stories on clients thus maintains a following not that they are taken very seriously!

  21. Edwin Zulu, UPND will be dead by the time it is voting time. Without masks, without social distance most of its campaign managers and cadres will be sick, fighting for life. Wake up short-sighted cadre thinking. Learn from Trump sickness. He could survive with best medical facilities. A word of advice to HH. Keep 4 meters distance from cadres. Your drivers, security men, other staff all be vaccinated and maintain social distance , no visiting their family members, no mixing and mingling with anybody outside . Take it or leave it. See you after August 16. Either you make it ( with strict following of above advice and poll strategy modified suitably, people rising to the task of protecting you and your team and vote_bank) or lose it for good. This is your last chance, Think!
