Acting President Guy Scott says the
constitution will be his guiding light as he leads the country during
the transition period.

Dr Scott said he will turn to the constitution during the remainder of his 90 days tenure for guidance during this difficult era in the country.

The Acting President said ensuring sustainability of the country’s
constitution is the only way that will ensure that law and order
is maintained in the country.

He was speaking at State House in Lusaka today after swearing in four High Court Judges.

The four judges are Justices Mwamba Chanda, Yvonne Chembe, Mwila
Chibwe Kombe and Lishomwa Nawa Muuka.

Dr Scott said it was a great honour for him to perform the ceremonial
duty of swearing in the four High Court Judges.

He congratulated the newly elevated High Court Judges and wished them
God’s guidance in the discharge of their duties.

The four judges were elevated to the High Court bench by late
President Michael Sata who died on October 28, 2014 in London.

Their appointment was ratified by Parliament in June this year.

Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda, Justice and Defence Minister
Edgar Lungu and his Gender and Information counterparts Inonge Wina
and Joseph Katema were among other senior government officials that attended the ceremony.
