Political Scientist Dr. Alex Ng’oma has cautioned stakeholders criticizing the judiciary that they are undermining the image, reputation and confidence of the judiciary.
Dr. Ng’oma says the current criticism against the judiciary is actually intimidating the judges and magistrates saying this must be avoided at all cost.
Dr. Ng’oma tells QTV News via telephone that it does not matter whether one is from the ruling party or opposition, criticizing the judiciary is unacceptable.
He says what is required in Zambia is to join hands in protecting the integrity of the judiciary.
He adds that it will not benefit the nation in any way if those who are in top leadership are the ones breaking or undermining the institutions that are there to promote good governance in the country.
Dr. Ng’oma says in as much as the people are free to criticize the JUDICIARY; they should do so with a cautious mind.
