PARLIAMENT ADOPTS A REPORT TO HAVE A FIXED HOUSING RATE FOR RETIRED CHIEF JUSTICES

Parliament has adopted a report to have a fixed housing rate for sitting chief justices at K2 million per month and that terminal benefits of all retired chief justices beyond those of the Pension Act should apply to all living chief justices.

This follows a report by the Public Accounts Committee presented by the chairperson, Joyce Chitsulo, which indicated that there is no housing rate for incumbent Chief Justice and that a retired chief justice’s housing allowance is supposed to be a percentage of the incumbent chief justice’s housing rate.

Chitsulo says currently, terms and conditions of service for chief justices do not provide housing allowance and instead they are entitled to a government house.

The report follows the Solicitor General’s request to the committee for clarity on applicable rate for housing allowance for retired chief justices, to enable them develop proper terms and conditions of service.
