UPND LAWYER SANGWA TRIES HARD TO TWIST HIS MYOPIC LEGAL UNDERSTANDING ON EDUCATED MATIBINI, ON SUPREMACY OF THE CONSTITUTION AFTER RECEIVING FUNDING FROM THE FAMOUS K1,600,000 MILLION BILL 10 BUDGET SLOT FROM HH

Upnd Constitutional lawyer John Sangwa says the constitution of Zambia is superior to both the speaker of the National Assembly and the National Assembly itself.

The Upnd lawyer Sangwa said this in a letter to speaker Patrick Matibini Who, he says with impunity, together with National Assembly have set themselves above the constitution and courts of law.

Sangwa has explained to Matibini that the Supremacy of the constitution clause is not a decoration but means that everything and everyone in Zambia is subject to the constitution.

Upnd surrogate Sangwa claims to have educated fellow Lawyer Matibini that the National Assembly and office of speaker are both creations of the constitution so they can not be above it since the constitution created itself from without form.

Sangwa has warned Matibini that he might find himself in contempt of court since only court is the only one above everything , if he continues disregarding court proceedings and orders.

BACKGROUND

Last week, the Law Association of Zambia filed an injunction in the Constitutional Court to restrain government through the National Assembly from enacting the Constitution (Amendment) Bill number 10 of 2019.

In view of the court process, LAZ lawyers Simeza Sangwa & Associates, wrote to National Assembly Speaker Matibini asking him to stop the process of enacting the Bill until the whole matter is determined by the Constitutional Court.

But Matibini informed LAZ that he won’t stop the proceedings because courts can’t interfere with parliament.

He claimed that parliament enjoys exclusive and unfettered jurisdiction in the conduct of its internal proceedings besides every law of the country including the constitution passes through the peoples’s representatives the MPs before it becomes.

  1. Mr Sangwa is a very good lawyer but he is trying to spoil his career by being political. Out of all the bill 10 ammendments, he a merely singled out the winning of elections as the main aim of the ammendment. This was at the public forum where he features together with Prof Ndulo. There are some positive ammendments in the bill that are beneficial to the country but he says the current costitution is good enough for the 2021 elections. What a falacy! From 2016 elections, the cry of many Zambians especially in the opposition has been to reform out electral laws by ammending the ECZ act. Surprisingly, Sangwahas found it fit to recomment the old constitution. It is not the constitution that will win you the election but the people of Zambia regardless of the nature of the constitution

  2. Comment:Dr Matibini and Mr Sangwa were both lecturers at UNZA. Mr Sangwa was recognized by everyone as the Constitutional Law expert including by his fellow lecturers. It’s just that his colleagues and students are now in positions of power and have turned against his teachings
