Chief Justice Chibesakuna is a PF Plant in the Judiciary – Muhabi Lungu

The Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) has accused Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda of having been planted by the ruling Patriotic Front government to diminish the number of Members of Parliament and satisfy President Michael Sata’s desire of a one party state.

Party spokesperson Muhabi lungu has said the MMD was dissatisfied with the position of Chibesakunda as Chief Justice because of the recent biased decisions emanating from the Supreme Court.

Lungu said the position of Chief Justice has been compromised and that Chibesakunda is not even qualified to hold the constitutional office of Chief Justice.

“Of course, we have heard rumours suggesting that she is being used to diminish our numbers in Parliament. This is because most of the cases including those for UPND have gone one direction. You can see for yourself,” he said.

But PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba has said the accusations were as a result of sour grapes and that he will not be involved in politicking.
