CONSTITUTIONAL lawyer John Sangwa says he has regretted for all the statements he issued and those attributed to him that have caused distress to the constitution court judges.
He says most of those statements originated from fake Facebook pages and Twitter accounts that have been created in his name to publish and republish false stories.
‘I do not have any presence on any social media platform’
In a press statement, published in News diggers newspaper, Sangwa said he has enormous respect for the judges.
” I have accepted the appointment of constitution court judges and respect their authority, ” He swore
Mr Sangwa dismissed assertions that he is an expert in constitutional matters.
“I have never claimed expertise in constitutional matters..I am just a keen follower of constitutional development in Zambia.” He Said
Meanwhile, Mr Sangwa has praised President Lungu for signing the constitution bill into Law on 5th January 2016 stating that he never thought a day would come when a sitting president would reduce his powers.
“I never thought there will be a day, in my lifetime, when a sitting president would reduce his own powers.. I was therefore elated on 5th January 2016 when President Lungu signed the constitution amendment bill into law.” Read the statement in part
