The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has began the process of securing an execution order to compel ministers who illegally stayed in office after the dissolution of parliament in 2016 to pay back the money they received as emoluments.
According to LAZ President Eddie Mwitwa, the process of writing to the attorney general and the secretary to the cabinet has began, in order to access information on what each ministers exactly owes the state as this is vital information for an execution order to be issued.
Mwitwa has told phoenix news that there are various options being considered to compel the affected former and current ministers pay back the money if they continue disrespecting the court judgement.
He explained that one of the options is to have those that are still serving in government have their current salaries attached to the constitutional court judgement.
And Mwitwa has appealed to government to exhibit morality and decency on the matter and have all the affected individuals that illegally stayed in office to pay back the money accrued after the dissolution of parliament in 2016 as failure to do so is tantamount to the breach of the rule of law.
