Tomorrow, Friday June 11, 2021 is a historical day which will be written in the books of Zambia and will be read and known even by many generations to come….
This is the day when the Constitutional Court Judges are going to BREAK or MAKE themselves as they make a RULING/JUDGEMENT on the Eligibility case of one Edgar Chagwa Lungu who happen to be the Presidential Candidate for the Patriotic Front party in the forthcoming August 12, 2021 Elections.
Edgar Chagwa Lungu has been challenged by Dr Sishuwa Sishuwa and Chapter One Foundation (of former Law Association of Zambia President Madam Linda Kasonde) in the Constitutional Court…..
The Lawyer representing the Petitioners is State Counsel John Sangwa….
The Petitioners submit that Edgar Chagwa Lungu was not supposed to file in his Nomination Papers as a contestant in the forthcoming elections because the Republican Constitution does not allow anyone who has twice held office as Republican President to contest for the third time….
Tomorrow, Friday 11th June 2021 we are going to hear the historical judgement….
I call it HISTORICAL because we are going to see whether our judges stand to defend an individual in the name of Edgar Chagwa Lungu who has abrogated the Republican Constitution or they stand to defend the Republican Constitution and the people of Zambia.
May God bless our country.
