The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) says it is concerned about Allegations of Corruption against Judges of the Constitutional Court namely Anne Sitali, Palan Mulonda and Mungeni Mulenga by UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema.

 

Association President, Ms. Linda Kasonde has condemned Mr Hichilema for making of any Unsubstantiated Claims, Particularly of Corruption against any Member of the Judiciary.

 

Ms. Kasonde has repeated her Earlier advice to Members of the Public with evidence of Corruption against any Judicial Officer must Lodge a Complaint with the Judicial Complaints Commission.

 

She has told 5fm Radio that Judicial Officers by Virture of their Positions cannot Publicly Defend themselves.

 

Ms. Kasonde has implored Mr Hichilema and the Public in General to desist from making Allegations against Judicial Officers without caution, due care and consideration.

She explained that Careless and Unsubstantiated Allegations have the Potential of Creating Anarchy and Eroding Public Confidence in the Judiciary.
