HH gives Chibesakunda 15 days to vacate office

United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has added his voice in calling for the resignation of Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda.

Hichilema has since given the Acting Chief Justice a two weeks ultimatum (15 days) in which to vacate the office.

The UPND leader who was speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka on Thursday, June 4, 2013 claimed that Justice Chibesakunda is no longer serving in the interest  of the nation as she has been rejected by Parliament.

He added that the  Acting Chief Justice has also been intimidating people that do not support the ruling party, the Patriotic Front by transferring them.

The UPND has since threatened to stage a protest  outside the courts if she does not resign on her own.
