The Alliance of Emerging Young Leaders (AEYL) supports call for the restructuring of the judiciary as a way of restoring public confidence in this arm of government.
As a movement of young emerging leaders we believe in the independence and strength of the three arms of government.
We are however gravely concerned about some media reports that allege impropriate about some of the key officers of the Judiciary.
It is critical that the judiciary and the courts in general continue to maintain their integrity.
Any reports that attempt to discredit the judicial independence especially with regard to corruption should be thoroughly investigated by the appropriate wings.
President Edgar Lungu as Head of State however should facilitate for a thorough investigation through a Tribunal to probe all allegations of impropriate at all levels.
As a youth movement we support the structuring of the judiciary as we believe it will restore public confidence in the justice system of our country. As citizens we have the right to be involved in the administration of justice just as much as we question the Executive and the Legislature.
