Justice Minister Given Lubinda says the increased number of nolle prosequis entered by the Director of State Prosecution are not state sponsored. Commenting on the high turnover of nolle prosequis under the stewardship of Director of Public Prosecution Lillian Siyuni, the minister said that the DPP could have resigned if anyone was giving her illegal instructions.

Siyuni has overseen a record number of nolles in politically laced cases with the withdrawal of the treason charge against United Party for National Development Hakainde Hichilema topping the list. “The DPP is a very professional person who cannot take instructions from anyone except using her professional judgment. Knowing her she may have resigned if that were the case,†he said. “Out of all the constitutional office holders she is the only one that cannot be removed by the President so she enjoys security of tenure.†He added: “There is nothing like government interfering in the dispensation of justice.†The post DPP Could Have Resigned if State Was Forcing Her to Enter Nolles-Lubinda appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo says the ruling Patriotic Front is still the number one choice for the citizenry given the recent victories in local government by-elections. Kampyongo said that for the PF to get the highest number of seats in the last round of council chairpersonship and ward by-elections meant that the people still had faith in the ruling party. The PF won nine out of 12 seats in chairpersonship and ward elections with the UPND getting the remainder of the seats. Kampyongo said the people still supported the PF as he had been delivering on their campaign promises. He paid tribute to the party members that led the campaign teams during the elections. Kampyongo said that the PF was still growing in popularity and would still hold power beyond 2021. The post PF Still Number One Choice – Kampyongo appeared first on Zambia Reports.
