LAZ joins PF in harassing lawyer Mushipe

LAZ joins PF in harassing lawyer Mushipe

 

  • UPND should adopt her for Mangango

The now disgraced Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has joined PF and the police in fighting and harassing human rights lawyer Martha Mushipe.

LAZ just banned Mushipe from practicing law in Zambia for saying the truth.

During the presidential petition in 2016, Mushipe told one of the judges who refused to hear the presidential petition Annie Mwewa Sitali that she is biased. Judge Annie Mwewa – Sitali then reported Mushipe to LAZ.

Does that that really deserve such cruel punishment from LAZ, an association supposedly dedicated to representing the interest of lawyers? Maybe LAZ only represents interests of judges. The previous leadership at LAZ ignored this complaint for the simple reason that it lacks merit and at the most, a reprimand to Mushipe would have been enough. But since the current LAZ executive was ushered into office, there has been a notable decline in the professional conduct and integrity of LAZ. LAZ is now a proper appendage of the ruling party, and this at the time when most people would have expected awyers to stand up for victims of an intolerant regime. Mwittwa has certainly chosen money over a good name. Now Mushipe will be made to suffer financial punishment just to please judge Mwewa for Mushipe is a lawyer and earns a living from appearing in court.

 

For Mushipe, we say, be strong and urge her apply to stand as MP in Mangango. We further urge the United Party for National Development (UPND) to adopt Martha Mushipe as the parliamentary candidate. That is the little they can do for since she is being punished by PF through LAZ for defending UPND.

 

Mushipe has been harassed by government agents and PF cadres, arrested by police on flimsy ground and her home and offices searched and law documents confiscated by police all because she stood up to the corrupt, biased judges.  Zambians judges prefer meek lawyers who only say my lord my lord even to corrupt elements.

 

This is what judge Annie Mwewa – Sitali said in 2016 and this is why Mushipe has been punished by LAZ:

 

‘We must note that some behaviour of some of the counsel for the petitioners as unbecoming in the law profession. And some went to the extent of alleging bias in front of the court, that a single judge who is myself was making unilateral decisions as the reason why.

 

“We condemn in the strongest terms the behaviour in particular that of Martha Mushipe and enjoin the Law Association of Zambia to take appropriate disciplinary action against her. It is further unacceptable for learned lawyers representing the petitioner  to say the single judge of the court made the unilateral decisions,”

    Martha My pain will go down all those that enjoyed the Labour of my hands. You enjoyed and dined with lawyers that pillaged me of my belongings, reducing me to inhuman acts ,  and degrading me I have never lived with ever since II was born. Harassing me to extortionist suits for over 4 years just because of I feriorty gender bias and complex, and tribalism. You represented the bandit lawyer who pillaged me in abuse if the court process, did’ you. The same men you supported to endanger the life of a fellow woman are taking you down. I feel your pain, but since you represented a bandit lawyer who was barred from the court process and must lose his legal practice and his law firm shut down just like you. I pray to my ancestors that no one who enjoyed a single penny of my hard earned UN money should get away with impunity. My daughter was killed and murder compounder. I sue those idiot lawyers and the Attorney General for the pillaging. They illegally remove my suit from the cause list. This is Zambia for you. I am sickened about everything here. I was inhumanely pillaged and extorted in abuse if the judicial process, and I cannot dine, mingle or have inter course with any Zambian man now.  I must leave and go and stay outside the country where they treat me like a human being. Because you mingled and maybe went to bed with those beasts. Bad omen shall follow you. Even those that are saying they should adopt you in Mangango. My ancestors are lying there and will surely do the needful. HH supported the Bandit Lawyer who pillaged me, and he went to Barotse and met his fate. I was investigating massacres, serious sexual crimes and Corruotion, fraud and malfeasance for the world. I come back home, you dine with idiots that scavenged through my luxuries. The law is not meant go compliment law breakers. You can remain with beasts. I am leaving Zambja for ever.

    Ba Mushipe muli bafyashi. On this one my heart has gone with you, bamayo. Do not hate anyone, Counsel. You may be thinking we do not know what it feels like; yes, you are right. But please, take heart and rest assured that God is in control. He works quietly, by the time he finishes we all shall see the results. Blessed is a woman who’s God is YHWH. It is always difficult to fight for human rights especially in Africa, but that’s the carrier you chose Maama; it’s your calling. The huddles mean you are fighting the right way. I wish I could connect with you.

    In defence of HH 3 weeks ago

    It is well my sister. Forgive Judge Sitali as HH has forgiven the con court Judges. Love them as scriptures teach us. One day the Lord will put a heavy price on them. 

    Your defence and HH’s defence must be as follows; 

    Corruption in international circles is “perception”. The guys who do the Corruption Index for Zambia only stand outside intercontinental hotel at night to observe how many cars move with one light on in front and at the back and it is very easy to form a “perception” or “opinion” that the Zambia Traffic Police is corrupt.

    Equally, when someone says Judges are corrupt, it means they have formed a “perception”, from the Judges behaviour and attitude that they are corrupt. This should be HH’s defense on the matter. It does not mean Judges are corrupt.

    If someone says PF ministers are corrupt, it is the “perception” formed by seeing ministers behaviour and attitude. It does not mean that for sure, they are corrupt.
