Chipimo Questions Decision of Retiring Judges

National Restoration Party (NAREP) President Elias Chipimo says the judiciary is living in very interesting times.

During an interview on the Radio Phoenix Radio talkshow “Let THE People Talk,” this morning Chipimo said it was curious that the four judges who ruled in favour of the tribunal where either on contract or close to retirement.

“Now maybe it is a coincidence that if you look at the four judges who ruled in favour of the tribunal one of them is actually on her second contract who is the acting Chief Justice Chibesakunda and the other three are very close to retirement where as the other three are far from retirement so they are a bit of security,” Chipimo said.

“I am just pointing some basic issues not to say that it is what transpired. We need to secure the tenure of judges and not put them on contract.
