Law should be followed on DPP's call to resign - Lifuka.
Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has advised stakeholders calling for the resignation of Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito to follow the right procedure.
TIZ president Reuben Lifuka says the tribunal that has been set up by the president is for a specific cause, noting that it will be out of context to bring in another issue.
Mr. Lifuka however states that the setting up of the tribunal to investigate the suspended judges does not stop Zambians from advocating for another tribunal if there is any misconduct on the part of the DPP.
Speaking in an interview, Mr. Lifuka says it will be wise to first deal with the issue of the judges, and in the process of the tribunal if the DPP becomes culpable; he can equally be subjected to further scrutiny.
He has however advised citizens to follow the law and ensure that matters are not mixed.
And Mr. Lifuka says the institution of a tribunal to look into the alleged misconduct of the three suspended judges was legally done and within the powers of the president.
He says the only concern will be if the tribunal is the only way of reforming the judicial system.
Mr.Lifuka says government needs to articulate and implement appropriate reforms in the judiciary.
