Ndola High Court
President Rupiah Banda says his administration will continue to uphold the autonomy of the judiciary by respecting separation of powers among the three arms of government.
The President says this is because the judiciary is an important arm of government that helps provide checks and balances.
The President was speaking in Ndola on Friday when he graced celebrations marking 50 years of the Ndola high court’s existence.
Mr. Banda said separation of powers is an important component of modern democracy which his government is determined to uphold.
He also said government is implementing the 2009 strategic plan aimed at addressing challenges facing the judiciary.
Mr Banda said the plan being implemented with the support of the Danish government involves the construction and rehabilitation of local courts country wide.
And speaking earlier Chief justice Enerst Sakala appealed for more funding to the judiciary for timely delivery of justice.
