LAZ says Lungu can appoint acting president even when he is at gym

LAZ says Lungu can appoint acting president even when he is at gym

PF cadre Eddie Mwitwa says president Edgar Lungu does not need to be out of the country to appoint another person to act as president.

Mwitwa, who as Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) president has successfully annexed LAZ to PF, says the Constitution was not breached when President Edgar Lungu recently took leave within the Country and designated his powers to the Minister of Defense.

Mwiitwa claims that the Zambian Constitution allows the President to designate his executive functions when he is out office in the absence of the Vice President. Mwitwa seems to think that ‘office’ means the physical room Lungu works from at State House. Some of these lawyers. Awe sure.

Mwiitwa says this permission is provided for in Article 109, sub-article 2, of the Republican Constitution.

There has been some concern that the president can only appoint someone else to act as president when he is out of the country.
