The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) says people demanding to know President Michael Sata’s well being and whereabouts are justified.


LAZ President George Chisanga says justifiable and convincing reasons must be given to the people if the person holding the highest office in the land is missing in action.

Mr Chisanga says the President is the number one public servant in the country and therefore must be visible to the people.

Mr. Chisanga has told QFM News in an interview that the issue of the President’s absence from the public eye should not be left to public speculation.

He says the ball is still in government’s hand to come out in the open and tell the nation what is exactly happening to the President.

Mr. Chisanga says whether the President is resting or un-well, the government should tell the people of Zambia stating that it is normal for the President fall ill just like any other person.

Meanwhile, the LAZ President has expressed concern over the delayed swearing in of the Attorney General and Solicitor General.

Mr. Chisanga says even though there is no legal implication of such delayed swearing in, it is only right that when parliament ratifies an appointment the vacant position is substantively filled.
