DPP should resign, insists Peter Sinkamba

General News DPP should resign, insists Peter Sinkamba

Green Party President Peter Sinkamba has insisted that Director of Public Prosecution Lillian Siyuni should resign her position instead of complicating her life any further.

Commenting on a letter being shared on social media dated 4th August 2022, by the Attorney General in response to Ms. Siyuni’s request for the President to lift her oath of office in respect of matters before the Judicial Complaints Commission, Mr. Sinkamba has reiterated that there is no provision in the Zambian laws which provides for the President to act as such.

He said that the request the DPP made to the President was equivalent to requesting the Head of State to carry out an illegal act because he has no powers to waive any Oath of Office.

Mr. Sinkamba said that as a senior lawyer, the DPP should know that every witness that appears before JCC is subjected to take an oath to tell the truth and is protected against any punishment for testimonies they make to the tribunal provided those statements are truthful.

He added that the Judicial Code of Conduct Act also provides for holding of sessions in camera hence the DPP did not need any other protection but that which is provided for by the Judicial Code of Conduct Act hence she will be more dignified if she resigned now than get fired.

In the said letter copied to the Chairperson of the Judicial Complaints Commission, Attorney General Mulilo Kabesha advised Ms. Siyuni that the waiver of the official oath of office being sought by her in respect of the allegations leveled against the DPP and lodged with the JCC was denied.

Ms. Siyuni is further advised that the Judicial Complaints Commission may proceed to hear the matter in accordance with the Commission’s rules of procedure.

  1. Fuseke just continue kubayila iwe. This woman holds alot of data which proves that hh is a corrupt lying slimey man. This is why hh is scared to lift the oath

  2. From being a pauper at Buffalo downs, this man runs on half a brain. He is unable to follow matters logically and in a descent manner

  3. Who is stopping her? Let her just resign.
    Let her be brave and tell those who are pushing her not to resign that she has to
    Take the pressure herself and allow her to
    Resign.

  4. The fact is that no body listens to this Sinkamba chap after he miscalculated and paid illegally obtained salaries by Kampyongo, you can carry out a survey and prove me wrong

    • That was a real political F#@k up and very amateurish of the man. He will never recover from that senseless act…

  5. We have no time for DPP issues, here in Kabushi we are just waiting for the bye election to show PF and its candidate that you can not continue riding on artificial popularity which you bought using money. PF left serious poverty here in Kabushi – FACT

  7. CAN SHE BE PROTECTED AND OFFERED STATE SECURITY BEFORE SHE IS ASSASSINATED BY UPND GOVT. ALREADY I GOT THE CALL THIS MORNING THAT OUR FATHERS HOME ECL WAS BROKEN INTO WHILST OUR MOTHER WAS IN THE HOUSE. NO ONE WHO SERVED UNDER PF IS SAFE UNDER THIS EVIL REGIME. AS FOR ME, I SLEEP WITH MY REVOLVER BY MY SIDE. IF I JUST HEAR OR SEE A UPND CADRE IN MY HOME, I WILL NOT HESITATE BUT TO FIRE 40 BULLETS TO THEIR HEAD.

  8. First we need clear reasons on what offense she committed that’s when the people can judge whether she has to go or not.

  9. provided those statements are truthful is pivotal in Sinkamba’s argument here. I may not know that what I am saying is truthful, however, I have no malice in stating them so, truth not withstanding, I should be protected by the oath.
