Nevers Mumba
Nevers Mumba

Opposition Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) president Nevers Mumba has described as shameful and retrogressive the move by the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) to have former republican President Rupiah Banda’s immunity removed.

Dr. Mumba said that the removal of Mr. Banda’s immunity has been done in disregard of the nation’s viewpoint as people in the country did not ask for such an action to take place.

Dr. Mumba has told Qfm in an interview that the removal of the immunity of the former president is only political retribution and not the fight against corruption.

He observed that it is cheap politics for the ruling PF to pass a motion of removal of immunity of the former head of state when Members of Parliament from the opposition had left the House in protest against such a motion.

Meanwhile, Chief Government Spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni has said that International Lawyer Robert Amsterdam is welcome to enter Zambia to defend his client the former president Rupiah Banda in court only if he meets the country’s immigration qualifications.

This follows Mr. Amsterdam’s affirmation on Friday that he will be ready to defend the former republic president in Zambian courts for any corruption allegations leveled against Mr. Banda if the Zambian government will be courageous enough to allow him enter the country.

Mr. Sakeni has told Qfm in an interview that if Mr. Amsterdam is to operate in Zambia as a lawyer, he also needs to be registered to practice in the country.

    • No one is above the law.If RB is innocent then he has no reason to worry.It might be embarrassing for now, but if he is found innocent he will not only have the last laugh, but will also walk with his head more higher than it has ever been

    • Sakeni and his PF are scared of Amsterdam to their bones, they put conditions that he can’t go through drunken Edgar Lungu’s immigration, and then another short wall Kabimba to allow Amsterdam to practice as a Lawyer.
      Then we take case outside of country…

    • No Sakeni is not scared of the so called “international lawyer”. To practice law in any country, you must be registered as a lawyer in that country. Since when was the so called international lawyer admitted to the bar in Zambia. Amsterdan is free to come to Zambia, but if he is coming to offer legal advice, for which he will be paid then the laws of Zambia, I am sure state that, he will need to obtain a temporary work permit. If the international lawyer does not know that then he must be avery dull lawyer.

      And what about the Malawian Judge Chikopo? Is he registered as a lawyer/judge in Zambia?

    • Jay Kay says:

      “If the international lawyer does not know that then he is a very dull lawyer.”

      How can you make such a statement when the lawyer in reference has not even uttered a word to indicate intent? What makes you think yo know better than he does? Fwe bena Zambia icimpwena! You know sometimes we need to just read and let be.

    • Let us not display ignorance here! Even Sakeni does not fully understand these things. Robert Amsterdam has practiced in several countries and does not do any complicated registration just as Judge Chikopa has been called in to practice as a judge. Elias Chipimo as a lawyer has done work in several countries including South Africa without a practising license. These matters can be done properly without politicising something which is just a legal case and not a political one. We could limit Robert Amsterdam’s representation/advice to RB but we should refer to the laws of Zambia not our fears. Give RB a fair trial and let him pay for his deeds if he has to. Otherwise, we end up looking like a kangaroo court. Sakeni did not need to comment until Amsterdam made approaches.

    • Great thing he never see’s your comments Sana, you are wasting your breath, and I can see that you really dont understand what is going on, this act is extremely retrogressive, and how does a corrupt party such as PF charge RB? They are corrupt too!! awe mwe! Are you aware that this will just cost the State money that could be used to better Zambia, instead you want to take a man to court(a court case that you might lose- like FTJ’s). Zambia needs to move forward deal with the bigger issues, please! And we wonder why Zambia doesn’t move forward, backward thinking!! Mumba, HH please speak your minds we need voices of reason.

So baba you are the one who has no idea what seem to be going on here, you thinking short term, iam thinking long term, so please dont just support anyhow and by the way, am neither pf nor politician, but an upright concerned Zambian.

    • Wendy Love, there is a saying in my language which, when roughly translated into English is: “The unripe fruit sometimes falls from the tree while the ripe fruit remains attached to the tree!”. The Bible also says he who digs a hole for another will fall in it himself.
      Take care, my friend. You might just find yourself six feet under much earlier than those you are wishing death! You may not like President Sata, but that is no reason for you to wish him dead, unless, of course you have unsavoury matters that you fear might be discovered through his agency! After all, there are many people who are convinced he is doing well for the country, and they are praying for him!

    • Ba ZP, Judge Chikopa was invited to come and chair a commission of inquiry, and not to practice law in Zambia. Any one with the right attributes – not necessarily a lawyer – could chair that commission of inquiry, I believe.
      So, there is a difference!

  6. FTJ’s allegations were a dossier but still didn’t secure a conviction ! Kabimba’s allegation’s sound more like hearsay ,if people were generous to RB does that constitute a crime.many leaders in the world receive gifts and donations but are never prosecuted for that besides,the man who passed the motion to lift the immunity is also being investigated for similar things ?

    just a waste of time and resources !

    • Besides, isn’t there a requirement for a President to declare gifts of significant value given to him?

      0

      0
    • @Mungoma , No there’s no requirement for the declaration of gifts. Neither is there a law regulating campaign donations either from Zambians or foreigners. These are the issues the PF was supposed to address if they really were serious about change. But they cannot change these things because they are the ones profitting from them as a sitting government. This is the vicious cycle in which Zambia is trapped! Only an honest leader in state house committed to real governance and institutional reforms is going to change the status quo.

Ba Chimbwe no plan in charge we are in trouble.I hope PF will go well with the Zambian people.Sata should have worked on building the economy instead of fighting the opposition.After 3 years when we look back on PF performance I guess we still be talking about RB court case.Too bad for the country.

  9. WHEN PARLIAMENT REMOVED RB’S IMMUNITY THIS WEEK, I ALSO FELT THE SAME WAY LIKE THE PASTOR WHEN CHILUBA’S WAS REMOVED BY HIS OWN PARTY UNTIL LAYER. CHILUBA WAS BOTH MY TRIBESMAN AND VILLAGE MATE. WHEN MWANAWASA DRAGGED HIM BEFORE COURTS I WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO LABEL LEVY AS GROSSLY UNFAIR TO THE MAN WHO MADE HIM WHAT HE LATER BECAME, THE THIRD PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. BUT THEN EVIDENCE OF CHILUBA’S PURCHASE OF FLATS IN LUSAKA STARTED COMING THROUGH. I COULD NOT JUST BELIEVE THAT A PRESIDENT COULD ENGAGE IN REAL ESTATE BUSINESS – RENTING OUT FLATS AND OFFICE SPACE! A PRESIDENT! I WITHDREW THE LITTLE SYMPATHY I HAD FOR CHILUBA. I EVEN DECLINED AN INVITATION TO ATTEND HIS FUNERAL. NOW RB GETS THIS MONEY TO SET UP MPUNDU TRUST. FOR WHAT? WHY SHOULD HIS KIDS OPEN BANK ACCOUNTS IN SINGAPORE!

    • we are not opposed to corruption fight but what we are saying is that it should not be selective. If kabimba does not want to be interviewed by ACC over oil imortation deals, why chase) over the same? PF is misusing public funds in byelections just like) did with his MMD. They will be prosecuted as well when their master is no more.

      1. It is sick Ministers who are a problem in Zambia because they need State help. Their loyalty is not based on truth but dependence syndrome. George Kunda changed because he needed govt help, so he could not oppose the boss.

  15. I want to ask Mumba why MMD MPs did not defend RB in parliament and why their friends in UPND decided to walk out instead of defending him? Actions speak louder than words. They knew what they were doing and probably did not want to be associated with him for future history. This looks like a donchi kubeba on RB by Mumba and HH after all RB is a threat to them because he is a possible MMD presidential candidate in 2016 and if this happened its them who would suffer.

  16. “Lifting of RB’s immunity is shameful and retrogressive” – Nevers Mumba. Lifting RB immunity is the most progressive thing Zambia has done. MMD Government removed office of abuse and promoted abuse of authority. Let the law deal with the case. We are aware that RB is not guity until proven.

    • Don’t rely too much on history. The team that is dealing with the issue is different! Did you hear what the Justice Minister said? He said the investigation team has already concluded investigations and is READY to start prosecuting Banda. Doesn’t that indicate a departure from past inefficiency?
      So, it’s not nonsense! On the contrary, it’s full of sense, extremely important and very good for the nation. Those in positions of trust, no matter how high, must learn to respect that trust and to limit themselves strictly to what the law permits them to do.
      So, just wait and see if this will be a waste of time!

If Mr. Banda is innocent, there is really nothing to worry about, is there? Mr. Mumba, please understand that the people do not elect a man/woman to be their president just so he/she can defraud them. Since you aspire to be President, learn that lesson well!
    As for Amsterdam, the chap who insulted us by calling us “useful *****s”, I wish him luck if he comes here!

    On a serious note, this development is good for zambia so that whoever is stealing now should not think that he or she will go scot free. Zambians are watching. It is the same thing that happened with R.B and his cohorts. Time has come just like MMD, the hour to be in jail has come now. If he is lucky, he will be imprisoned at mpundu trust otherwise, aaaa, kaya mwe ni pachimbokaila chabe mwe.

Dr.Mumba you will never cease to mesmerize me.I first saw you in flesh in 1992 at KK Int.Airport, when a kid pointed you out to me,”that’s the man who makes so much noise on TV.” Then next we were on the same flight from London, the late Ken Ngondo was shifted from Economy to First Class because he could not fit in the seat, remember?Last, we met during your visit toL/stone recently. Man of God, presidential immunity is not a right but privilege.We the citizens wish to withdraw it even at will to teach you leaders not to steal or indulge in official crimes. We want to know the truth, than to have leaders fakely insulated by immunity. Even when you become president then steal after your term, we the people will get you. In the end presidents will stop stealing. It is a long term…

No, at least we need some restitution. Even the case of my late village-mateFTJ, if the case was not interfered with by RB(another matter to probe) we could had some restitution. If you wish Dr.Mumba start interceding for RB to cleared of these allegations by God’ intervetion. But God is just…

  27. If the move was legal and not just political then there has to be a full disclosure of the budget of the commission or task force that will be set up to determine the cost benefit analysis, the wisest thing to do if this move is legal is for the ACC to carry out the investigation with no allowances because it is part of their job and they get salaries. Lastly as others have already indicated a clause should be amended in the new constitution that states that Presidents will lose immunity after their term that will ensure accountability and remove all unnecessary drama. Systems and processes must be clearly defined and enforced.

  41. RB should be prosecuted finish and klaa….as South Africans will say. Indeed no one is above the law….RB should cooperate with law enforcement procedures to determine whether he looted govt money or not. And if found wanting be jailed or seek restitution of some kind. How can we the people that ever wish to have credible leaders governing us turn around and blame PF Govt for doing what is right. I repeat if RB is not guilty he’s a free man. But if he’s not then the law should take its course. And let this be a template for current and future leaders that to steal from one’s country is not only immoral but gravely unjust to the people being governed. Just look at how many street kids are out there, hospitals, schools, roads that could have benefited from such monies had RB not…

I hear Dora Siliya’s son got loads of cash in the bank….Henry Banda has millions of dollars stashed in off-shore accounts…..why why we ask……this (the attitude of stealing) cannot go on forever….viva PF hopefully all these thugs can be brought to book without fear or favor.

The Speaker, in simple language said JUST AS PARLIAMENT CAN NOT DEBATE A MATTER THAT IS BEFORE THE COURTS OF LAW, THE COURTS CAN NOT ALSO DETERMINE WHAT PARLIAMENT SHOULD DEBATE ABOUT! In this case, the constitution specifically says IMMUNITY CAN BE REMOVED BY PARLEY. So the courts have no business on wether or not parley can debate the issue. Of course he was being diplomatic! THAT IS SEPARATION OF POWERS.

  47. Firstly, Nevers you are a wrong person to condemn this move for sure you maybe a sympathizer because you have something in common. But as for Amsterdam he cannot practice in Zambia until he is registered, the same goes for priests, pastors, etc cannot just officiate marriages by virtue of their office…but they have to be registered, it also becomes a source of revenue for the country. Lastly, RB this is not the end of the world but a beginning of defence, and I hope you are clean….though non of us is.

  48. Hungry Hyena (HH) and Mumba have failed Ruphia their financier. You can combine the three and will not match Sata. I say so, Sata started from a councillor, Governor, MP, Minister, formed his own political party and now is the president. where ever her has been appointed to manage the you will feel the wind of change and the change is witnessed. In opposition, Sata and levy were sorn enemies over Chiluba and Immediately Sata and Levy met at State house and learnt that Chiluba was in the wrong, he spoke to Chiluba to return some of the money he stole. Chiluba was not happy and the demise of Levy, Chiluba found a new friend and that was Ruphia. Ruphia interfered with the Judicial due process and Chinyama where ever he is must know the law will be visiting him sooner than later for failing…

    • The resources that Nevers abused at while ambassador in Canada (mayenje scandal), the funds stolen by PS Miti , RB, Dora, Laito, Konga, Namulambe, Banda family,Kapoko and others is public money it belongs to Zambians and not President Sata or PF. Let thieves face musical law. These above people pick pocketed Zambians. And what do we do to pick pockets?

  50. Seeking justice is never retogressive or shameful! The MMD members should be ashamed for picking this useless leader. Of all the credible members in MMD, you pick a person who has never organised anything which he can proudly say I started that. Sometimes a good leader counts more than a party’s name, Mumba is not good leader for MMD. His is trying to force his style of leadership which had failed twice as leader of two parties and as a Vice-president. The results at the ballot are speking for themselves and Mumba should not forget that the people who voted for PF came form MMD because they were unimpressed with RB and he is not helping the situation by continuing to support him. People are leaving MMD because of bad leadership and come 2016, MMD will have 2 seats in parliament!

  51. THESE ARE SOME SIMPLE THINGS THAT MAKE THE OPPOSITION VERY UNPOPULAR. MMD WAS REJECTED BECAUSE IT WAS PERCEIVED AS CORRUPT AMONG MANY OTHER REASONS. THIS IS A VERY GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR MMD AND RB TO SHOW LEADERSHIP AND ALLOW THE INVESTIGATIONS TO GO ON. THE MMD CAN SHAME THE PF IN THIS WAY IF THEY COME OUT CLEAN. BUT WE HAVE A SITUATION WHERE A SUSPECT IS REFUSING TO BE PROBED. IF RB IS INNOCENT, WHY IS HE AFRAID TO BE INVESTIGATED? THE REFUSAL ITSELF BRINGS IN EVEN MORE SUSPICION. > K21BN IS A LOT OF MONEY. THESE ARE NOT SIMPLE ALLEGATIONS. A MINISTER IN HIS ADMINSTRATION HID K2.1BN IN THE GROUND. SURELY IS IT WRONG FOR US TO DEMAND AN EXPLAINATION TO THESE ACTIVITIES? LETS BE FAIR WITH EACH OTHER PLEASE. SOME PARTY WHICH CLAIMS TO HAVE EDUCATED PEOPLE HAS LAMENTABLY FAILED ON THIS ONE.

  52. I am painfully exploring to discover the real genetic make up of the Speaker of National Assembly, the so called Dr. Matibini. It is a puzzle to note that this trained Lawyer fails to draw the line between legal ethics and short-term political opportunism. Indeed the recipe comprised of Mmembe, Kabimba, Matibini, Mutembo Nchito, Mumba Malila, Musa Mwenye (may also a new recruit Lombe Chibesakunda) goes a long to constitute a lethal political meal that has plunged Zambia into the DARK AGES. What a clique of strange invasive species!

    • THAT COMBINATION MWANSA KABINGA IS LETHAL. ASK LIATO AND A WHOLE HOST OR TANDEM OF CORRUPT THIEVES WHO WERE MASQUAREDING AS LEADERS WHAT THAT COMBINATION HAS DONE TO THEM. WE ARE SAFE AS LONG AS THAT COMBINATION REMAINS INTACT. EVEN A SMALL BOY KNOWS THAT MISAPPROPRIATING OVER K21BN IN A CRIME AGAINST THE POOR PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.

  54. BROTHER NEVERS MUMBA HAS BROUGHT SHAME ON THE NAME OF THE LORD AND TO THE BODY OF BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS IN ZAMBIA BY SIDING WITH A SUSPECT. THE BIBLE SAYS “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.”IN THE LIGHT OF THIS SCRIPTURE I EXPECT NM TO BE SOBBER MINDED AND ALLOW THE COURTS OF LAW TO CLEAR MR RB. EVIDENTLY THERE IS MONEY >K21BN WHICH WAS MISUSED BY MR RB ALLEGEDLY. BROTHER NM KNOWS THAT MMD NEVER HAD THIS MONEY IN ITS ACCOUNT. HAS NM EVER BOTHERED TO ASK HIS PREDESESOR WHERE THIS MONEY CAME FROM? CAN NM STAND BEFORE GOD AND CONFIDENTLY SAY RB IS INNOCENT? WELL, IF HE CANNOT THEN LET HIM ALLOW THE COURTS OF LAW TO TELL US. IS IT RIGHT FOR A CHRISTIAN TO BE SEEN TO BE SIDING WITH A WRONG DOER BEFORE HE IS…

  55. Iwe MUMBA ,in most cases that you have spoken you don’t speak for the people, you always leave people behind.You had better organize your party members as you always talk from a higher platforms which you do not deserve, in my opinion.People from the lower class may not know what to do but more knowledgeable people will lead the way,take it or leave it!

  57. Why should politicians hide behind immunity? If RB is innocent why is he worried. We Zambians are so stupid. No one is above the law? That is the problem with democracy, even the stupid are allowed to voice out their opinions. Unfortunately Zambia is comprised of the uneducated stupid majority. We need to understand that leaders have to be accountable to the people. We have wasted enough money on toothless task forces? all we need is to toughen the law, and the law will do its job. our laws on corruption and plunder are toothless . The law allowed RB to be president when LPM died. The same law is supposed to hold him accountable? Why didn’t he deny the presidency? Accountability is part of governance. If he did not want to be accountable, he should not have taken the job. let the law…

    • No they are not. But the term “First Lady” is a legal title that accrues budget allocation. The parliament which includes PF, UPND, MMD and FDD members of parliament decided to give her the money. So if it is abuse of office, then accuse all MPs and the legislature that ratified the allocation. Otherwise, stop pointing fingers at things that do not matter. Besides, this is RB’s time to account for his actions. It is childish to say because Kabimba, Nchito, Sata, GBM and others are not clean therefore we should let everybody go unchecked. Kabimba, Nchito, Sata, GBM and others cannot initiate investigations against themselves. If you have evidence about their corrupt practices, you have the right to take them to court.
