Zambia: Rule of Law

The Mast, July 14: The Chief Justice of Zambia describes the rule of law in Zambia.

But is it the reality in Zambia? Not everyone thinks so.

“There are no sacred cows in the application of the law. It is the rule of law, not the rule of men, therefore the law is paramount. So regardless of your social status, whether a lawmaker, law enforcement official or even a judge, when you break the law, you go through the same process of trial and you have the right to access to justice like every other person,” says Chief Justice Irene Mambilima.
