But Judiciary claims ‘immunity’Rep. Numene Bartekwa, chairman of the majority bloc of the House of Representatives, has revealed that the Bill of Impeachment for the three Associate Justices of the Supreme Court is on the “round table” because of the intervention of religious, traditional and other civil society groups. A round table discussion is a form of dialogue involving concerned parties and others seeking the resolution of a pertinent issue of national interest. Rep. Bartekwa is one of the five lawmakers who petitioned the House of Representatives to impeach Justices Kabineh Ja’neh, Jamesetta Howard-Wolokollie, and Philip A. But, in spite of the discussions we are still holding up to the petition of impeachment and we hope that the conclusion of the round table will end on a good note. Let me say, as lawmakers and leaders of the land, the elections will not be undermined by our actions.
