State wants ConCourt to state if Mutembo can be reinstated as DPP


Two years after Mutembo Nchito sued the State to challenge his removal as Director of Public Prosecutions, the State has now raised preliminary issues in the Constitutional Court on November 15, on whether the decision by the President to remove Mutembo Nchito as Director of Public Prosecutions can be reviewed by the court and whether he can be reinstated. In a notice to raise preliminary issues filed in the Constitutional Court, the state stated that when the matter comes up on November 15, they intend to raise preliminary issues, among them, whether the provisions of article 144 of the Constitution (Amendment) Act no.1 2016 applied to Mutembo and whether he could be reinstated as DPP.
