Sangwa says impeachment can be tabled amid court process

Constitutional Lawyer John Sangwa has clarified that the impeachment motion can be tabled in Parliament even though some grounds therein are before court.

According to Mr. Sangwa the impeachment motion is a political process whereas the matters before court are a legal process.

He adds that President Edgar Lungu is immune to prosecution unless he is impeached.

Mr. Sangwa says Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has no right to delay the tabling of the impeachment motion in Parliament as long as it meets all necessary requirements.
