MY BEST WISHES TO THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE FOR THE NEW YEAR ==================================================== Fellow Zambians, good evening. Tomorrow night, as Zambians across the country gather with family and friends to celebrate, I want to wish everyone a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year. This is special time of on calendar. As we celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another, it time to reflect. It is time to look back and reflect on how gracious the good Lord has been onto us to live up to this time. In between, we lost our dear ones and blessed with new ones; we have lost property and gained elsewhere; we have lost ground in one area and gained elsewhere. And so on. Such is life! The year 2016 was extremely difficult for all of us. The Nation has been divided like never before. We have never experienced this level of widespread hate and political violence post-independence. As we celebrate the New Year, it is therefore imperative that we look back on this year with the knowledge, and hope, that brighter days lie ahead of us. Although our challenges are unprecedented, they are surmountable. Each of us must have the courage and determination to rise up and meet the challenges head-on. In the New Year, let’s reconcile and move on as one people. It is this spirit of reconciliation that has kept Zambia an oasis of peace and unity. It is this spirit that has kept the One Zambia One Nation motto alive for generations. And it is this spirit that will keep it alive for generations to come. So, if I offended you in any way, in the past year, I am so sorry. Please forgive me. Lets begin the New Year as great friends, once again! Happy New Year the President of the Republic of Zambia His Excellency Mr. Edgar Changwa Lungu, and the Patriotic Front! Happy New Year President Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND family! Happy New Year all other Opposition Leaders in Zambia, and your membership across the country! Happy New Year the Greens countrywide! Happy New Year everyone! And Happy New Year to myself! I LOVE YOU ALL, STAY BLESSED. HOPE YOU LOVE ME TOO!!! Peter Sinkamba President Green Party https://web.facebook.com/PeterChazyaSinkamba2021/

The Judicial Complaints Commission has set February 10, 2017 as the date for the hearing of the complaint filed by the Green Party President to the Commission for the removal of Constitutional Court Judges Hilda Chibomba, Mungeni Mulenga, Anne Sitali, Margret Munalula and Palan Mulonda on the grounds of incompetence and gross misconduct. The hearing will take place Twangale Park in Lilayi.
The allegations of misconduct relate to the conduct of the election petition filed by UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba vs. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, Inonge Wina, the Electoral Commission of Zambia and the Attorney General. Petitioner alleges that the behaviour of the five judges in the manner they handled the petition from the start to finish brought the Constitutional Court into disrepute, ridicule or contempt contrary to Article 143(a) of the Constitution. The Petitioner further alleges that the behaviour of the five judges was prejudicial or inimical to the economy of the country, and threatened the security of the State contrary to Article 143(b) of the Constitution. The petitioner cited the issuance of contradictory orders by the five judges, which bordered on breaching Rules of Constitutional Court and the Constitution of Zambia.
The Complaint was filed pursuant to Article 143 (b) and (c) and 144 of the Constitution of Zambia, Cap 1 of the Laws of Zambia, and Section 24 and 25(1) and (3) of the Judicial (Code of Conduct), Act No. 13 of 1999.
The hearing was initially supposed to take place at the same place last year on 13 December, 2016 but was rescheduled due unforeseeable circumstances.
