Constitutional Court Judges

The Southern African Center for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) says the Constitutional Court has contributed to the political fiasco Zambia is experiencing at the moment because a section of political society holds that it failed to address their 2016 election grievances.

Speaking in an interview, SACCORD Executive Director Boniface Cheembe said under ideal conditions it will be good that all Zambians recognize President Edgar Lungu adding that as a civil society SACCORD identifies him as Head of State despite having taken note of the protests of political stakeholders concerning the aftermath of the 2016 tripartite elections.

Commenting on Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) leader Nevers Mumba’s charge that President Lungu will only be recognized by the opposition once the Constitutional Court legitimizes him, Mr. Cheembe said it is a democratic right of the aggrieved political players to be heard in the Constitutional Court which has a mandate to dispense justice impartially so that Zambians have confidence in the judiciary.

“The Constitutional Court has contributed to the political fiasco Zambia is experiencing at the moment because a section of political society holds that it failed to address their 2016 election grievances” Chembe said

When he featured on the People’s Debate Programme on Pan African Radio Yesterday MMD leader Nevers Mumba said he cannot look for a job from President Lungu because he does not recognize him.

But Patriotic Front (PF) Media Director Sunday Chanda has questioned the wisdom of Dr. Mumba by saying he does not recognize President Lungu when on more than one occasion he has been to State House to meet him.

Chanda has since challenged Dr. Mumba to tell the nation why he has been frequenting State House if he does not recognize President Edgar Lungu.

“I questioned the wisdom of Dr. Mumba by saying he does not recognize President Lungu when on more than one occasion he has been to State House to meet him” Chanda said.
