Expedite Judicial reforms- Bishop Mambo

A substantive Chief Justice should be appointed immediately to give focus and direction to the judicial reforms that are intended to give credibility to the judiciary, Bishop John Mambo has said.

It was very sad, he said, that the Judiciary was so compromised that judgments could be predicted long before delivery depending on the judge handling a matter.

He added that the current  status subsisting  in the judiciary had eroded the confidence of the Zambians people, ” A new Chief Justice must be appointed to spearhead reforms that are so badly needed.” He said.

Speaking during a press briefing of Alliance for Good Governance yesterday the Bishop decried the fact that the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) was also toothless compounding the issues of governance and integrity.

“The ACC is involved in selective investigations.” He said.
