The Judiciary of Zambia wishes to clarify the misinformation appearing in an article in the “Daily Nation” issue of Tuesday, 28th October, 2014 under the headline “Supreme Court in Crisis”
The article, purporting to quote some Judges, alleges that the Supreme Court is in a crisis and the morale at its lowest ebb. It further alleges that the Supreme Court has been compromised and polarized by political appointments.
The article also questions the appointment of candidates who have never written a single Judgment or served on the Bench of a lower Court, as Supreme Court Judges
This article is not only malicious but also mischievous, untrue and a deliberate attempt to misinform the general public and alarm the Nation.
