President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA has with immediate effect suspended Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) LILLIAN SIYUNI.
The President has since appointed KATONGO IAN WALUZIMBA as acting DPP for administrative convenience.
President HICHILEMA has acted on the recommendations contained in the report presented to him by the Judicial Complaints Commission (JCC).
Presidential spokesperson ANTHONY BWALYA says in a statement to ZNBC news this evening that the suspension of the DPP is in exercise of the powers vested in the President pursuant to Articles 182 (3), 144(2) and 144(3) of the Constitution of Zambia.
