ACC fail to interview Kabimba as he refused to be interviewed in the absence of PF cadres and the media

The interview by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) officers with Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Wynter Kabimba over alleged oil contract deals today flopped after he refused to be interviewed alone.

Mr Kabimba who is Justice Minister was summoned today by ACC at 15:30 hours but arrived five minutes before the scheduled time and was welcomed by several PF cadres.

Upon arrival, Mr Kabimba was received by ACC public relations manager Timothy Moono and other officials who ushered the Minister inside the building while the cadres also made their way in.

Mr Kabimba was taken upstairs by some ACC officers who earlier persuaded him to leave the party members outside so he could be interrogated alone in one of the offices.

But Mr Kabimba insisted that the matter he was summoned for, was of public interest because it had been all over in the press and there was no way ACC officers could demand to interrogate him alone.

“I want to see the officer who is supposed to interrogate me… because I fixed an appointment at 15:30 hours and infact, I came here five minutes before. I don’t want to paraphrase my statement to the media.

“There is nothing to hide in this matter all what I want is the media and all these people around to be present when you interrogate me,” Mr Kabimba told one of the ACC officers whilst on upstairs offices.

After conferring with an indentified ACC officer for some minutes, Mr Kabimba was then asked to go back to the waiting room to enable the officers prepare the room that could contain all people who accompanied him.

At the waiting room, several senior ACC officers pleaded with Mr Kabimba to interrogate him alone stating that the matter was ‘confidential’ but the cadres responded that “We are here to support and protect our S.G and this matter is of public interest and anybody can attend it,”

At this point, ACC deputy director general Irene Lamba appeared and told Mr Kabimba that the interrogation could only go ahead in absence of cadres and the media.

She said,” Honourable, this matter is confidential, there are a lot of people around its not possible to do our work,” but Mr Kabimba assured her that the cadres were harmless and if anything bad happened he was going to be held responsible.

After a short talk, Mr Kabimba was told to leave the offices by Ms Lamba who said the commission would make fresh arrangements to interrogate him but the cadres also responded that they would not give up in supporting their S.G the next time ACC would summon him.

Mr Kabimba was disappointed that ACC officers had failed to interrogate him after making all his efforts to avail himself before the commission to interrogate him in an open manner.

    He is the same person with his PF party who were always shouting that HH did not need to go with cadres to the police. These things just happen, your supporters will just come you do not need to invite them. He is now in the same shoes and understands that in times like these one needs some support.

    am very dissappointed with our SG,your behaviour exhibited here is not encouraging but disappointing as a person occupying a high office, you were suppose to follow the laid down procedures for the interrogations. what message are you sending to the opposition leaders?? I dont think you need cadres or media to prove your innocence, infact you doing what you did just sparks more doubt in your innocence in the allegations levelled against you. please can PF purely change for once, we no longer in the opposition, we must respect our institutions instead of making their work difficult.

      Hi PF Supporter, I salute for the comment you have made here. For once we need a difference in the way we do politics. Seriously, how can the so called Justice minister behave like a cadre? I thought Wynter was a lawyer and understands such legal matters and processes, and the need for rule of law and independence of the bureaucracy. How could he really behave in such an uncivilized and unprofessional manner? Let us get serious people. It really hurts to see that these are the kind of people in higher offices and were supposed to formulate policies on behalf of the country. I am scared for mother Zambia.

    By the way Kabimba, you are wasting Tax Payers’ money. We have employed the ACC/DEC to carry out business for us. Why are you resisting interviews? Do you want to be dealt with by we the citizens ourselves and not our agents?

    What do you fear, can you tell the public so that if anyone of our people are summoned, they too can avoid showing up there?

People will be judging your party by your behaviour today at the ACC Offices since you are the chief executive of your party.You were not with your cadres when you were committing the felony.You were on your own please Winter.Why did the ACC arrest the cadres for interfering with their work?Sakeni can you use the Public Order Act on Winter for being breach of peace and dis orderly at the public place-ACC offices.

    This is just absurd so say the least. I mean, even a lay man can see through this here bul$hit.

    And why, just why would the President keep letting his cabinet Ministers run rampant with impuinity? In the interest of the public, these ACC interviews have to be privately conducted. Yes, Kambimba has every right to have a legal representative accompany him and not party cadres or the media. Can you imagine a scenario where people now start refusing to be questioned by ACC because, they can’t have their bululus present?

    Such behaviour from a high ranking officer in a government can only occur in a country with very poor democratic structures. Acting rough shod with the same statutory institutions that support governments operations from the Justice Ministers speaks volumes about what these office bearers think about the law they claim they uphold. The message being sent out is that there some people who are above the law. From a moral point of view, this is the reason most of impartial people had called for both GBM and Kabimba to step down while investigations were taking place. But this is the jungle where there are two legal systems at play.

    I think that the President should seriously and publicly caution Kabimba over such unprofessional conduct and if I were him I would actually remove him from the justice ministry, firing him would actually be the best action. How does our president work with such people? How can we even advance the national agenda with people who think they can decide what everyone else does and how they do it? Those ACC officers are professionals trained to handle such matters in an institution that is empowered by law, an Act of Parliament. How does Kabimba show up in Parliament and enact national laws and policies with such kind of behavior? Shameful and appalling. Kalunga tata tukafwe!!

    Hon. Kabimba is guilty until proven otherwise. This is not the change we voted for. Kabimba can not start undermining the institutions which he is supposed to safeguard. The matter is in public domain, yes, just the way other cases have been handled in this land. Infact that is the way high profile cases have been handled worldwide. What is so special about this case? Why should Hon Kabimba be treated differently? It is clear now that Hon Kabimba is in a wrong political party. His character belongs to MMD. And Hon Kabimba should not **** himself that he is invincible. Surely H.E. President Sata is watching and I know for a fact that he is serious with the anti-corruption crusade. It is just a matter of time, Hon. Kabimba will be forced to resign, if not fired. It is the only litmus test!

Had respest in him but am now douting his integrity as he is one of the most senior Goverment Officials.What is he fearing to be questioned alone.And where on earth as he seen people being interviewed in the presence of unconcerned personnel.Mr. President Please talk to him and let him comply with the rules of the law.

    Hon. Wynter Kabimba as a nominated MP, Minister of Justice and PF SG has put the President in an awkward position in as far as the fight against corruption. He wrote to the ACC assuring them of his corruption, but was that the cooperation you talked about. As a lawyer, you know that investigative wings will not carry out their work in the public glare, especially at a preliminary stage!!! Now, its either the President drops you to allow you cooperate with investigative wings or the fight against corruption is dealth a mortal blow if the President ignores this!!!!

    Kabimba is arrogant and full of pomposity. He is not worth being a Minister of Justice. He is still behaving like a PF cadre. Sata please fire this guy. He is a disgrace to you. He will embarass you in future. Watch! Don’t say you were not warned.

    Winter Kabimba is just a shameless liar. Kabimba thinks Zambians are *****. Why did he go to the ACC in the first place? He is using the ACC as a ”smoke screen” It is very strange for a suspect to give conditions that he must be questioned in the presence of cadres and the media. Kabimba is the same person who condemned HH for going with cadres to police. This corruption fight by the PF is just a comedy. Cry the beloved country!

    Now this is very bad. Winter should not mistake cadres for ‘Public’ . The Public will get the statements of what transpires in the interview, through the proper channels. Winter is the Minister of justice, and you wonder what kind of justice he can dispence. We now want to see what the head of state will do, because Winter seems to be above the law, infact, he seems to be too powerful for the law.

    This behavior by our justice minister may seem frivolous however, observe carefully his attempt to make the process public.

    The man is sliding out of favor hence his pleas for the media and cadres[public] to be present during questioning.

    With hindsight, i pity the man befallen with the dredge of a tribal hierarchy and sponsors of ethnic supremacy within upper echelons of pf party.

    Let those that have eyes see that this man is on a slippery slope to oblivion. Unless Zambians esp those from other parties welcome WK and dislodge pf in 2016 or even earlier.

    i rest easy.

    The last nail into PF’s coffin. There is no way PF will win the next elections. Absolutely no way – if they try to rig that will be the beginning of Zambia’s civil war. We will not allow this kind of nonsense to continue after 2016. Let’s see what Sata will say about this. The line has clearly been drawn now. PF are a bunch of animals who have no respect for the people. Zambians have never been insulted to this degree before…we have never seen anything like this in the history of Zambia. GBM must be laughing and is very happy about this.

    Our MPs should find out on our behalf in Parliament if this is acceptable behaviour in Zambia so that we shall all be going with our henchmen when summoned by law enforcement officers. What I don’t understand is why the ACC didnot go ahead and interview him for all of us to hear what he had to say. Perhaps they really had no questions for him afterall. They were just putting up a show!!!.

    ACC is an office created by an act of parliament through which all Zambians are represented through their elected MPs and for Kabimba to behave in a manner he did, it shows very clearly that this man has no respect for the Zambians and the institutions that be. Mr. Kabimba should be ashamed of his action of carrying cadres to ACC officce. That kind of behavior is immature, unprofessional and aimed at undermining the office of the ACC. It is sad to have a Minister of Justice who behaves in a manner Kabimba has done. I implore all dignified Zambians and authorities to condemn the behavior exhibited by the so-called Justice Minister/PF Secretary General………….

    I think WK is a real man. He has nothing to hide. Those ACC wanted to corrupt him. A public figure has nothing to hide and as such it could have been better to hear him answer all questions in public. This is the best way of fighting corruption.
