Chikopa Should Recuse Himself – Changala

Human rights activist Brebner Changala has asked Malawian Judge Chikopa to consider recusing himself on moral grounds from chairing a controversial tribunal whose clear agenda is to satisfy the demands of President Michael Sata and his two key allies.

Changala says that President Sata must be reminded that Judge Chikopa’s controversial tribunal would haunt him for the rest of his life, and this is one matter that would follow him to his grave. Speaking in Lusaka during an interview, Changala said the people of Zambia had wholesomely condemned and rejected the tribunal from proceeding.

“In whose interest is this tribunal being done? This tribunal was set up to serve the interest of a very small elite and well connected group of people who have for a long time now tried to usurp state power from every successive president to date,” he said.
