Robert Amsterdam
Robert Amsterdam

Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba has taken a swipe at leaders of the UPND and the MMD for engaging international lawyer Robert Amsterdam to allegedly malign President Michael Sata.

Mr. Kabimba said Mr. Amsterdam is a hired mercenary who is now championing the anti-removal of subsidy campaign and corruption allegations after introducing himself as lawyer for Mr Rupiah Banda and his son Henry.

He said the PF while in opposition did not hire any mercenary to fight allegations of corruption against the MMD.

The Justice Minister was speaking during a news briefing at his office in Lusaka.

Mr. Kabimba said the PF managed to have a tribunal set up against then Transport Minister Dora Siliya and even commenced an action in the High Court against the then First Lady Thandiwe Banda without retaining a foreign lawyer.

He said the PF did not engage a foreigner lawyer because it does not suffer from an inferiority complex and colonial hangover in the manner the UPND and MMD leadership do.

Mr. Kabimba who is also PF Secretary General said the UPND and MMD leadership cannot serve the interest of Zambians if voted into power.

He said such leadership would sell out to foreign interests through the likes of Mr. Amsterdam and his superiors.

Mr. Kabimba accused the MMD and the UPND of collaborating with foreign interest against their own people at the time when the whole of Africa is fighting to shed off the last vestiges of ne-colonialism.

He said the campaign by Mr. Amsterdam will not yield any results which would bring the UPND and the MMD into power.

Mr. Kabimba said Mr. Amsterdam has failed to have the former Prime Minister of Thailand Thaksin Shinawatra regain power despite waging a similar international media campaign.

He said Mr. Amsterdam has no success story to tell except give a ray of unfulfilled hope to desperate men of fickle characters such as Mr. Hichilema and his surrogate, Pastor Nevers Mumba.

    • @ Ndobo, no one is scared or worried about Amsterdam. Amsterdam is just a thief like RB and the rest of you. He was reaping where he did not sow, so for him, it is about money which he cannot steal easily except of course through legal payments from the Banda family. Not from our coffers. Even you Ndobo knows, it is just that you are one of the bitter ones like HH and Amsterdam. So shut your sorry a.s.s. or better still join Henry in RSA.

    • Robert Monsterdam is a coward who has failed to come and defend his thieving and corrupt client Rupiah, after the govt gave him a greenlight to come.

      He knows he will terribly fail the exams to practice law in Zambia, so he can only bark from a safe distance instead of showing his legal prowess in court while he continues to claim to be an “international lawyer”….Really?

      And not a bitter blind disciple of Sata like you… illiterancy is not an issue but mental blindnes and bitternes from cadres like you is.

    • Whoever thinks Amsterdam is a coward should think twice. Amsterdam is not scared of losing a court case against Mutembo Nchito or even Kabimba. He is just concerned for his safety and reputation. Imagine being sent back at the airport or being given a rigged exam just to embarrass him. This man has not made his money for nothing.

      The RB case is hollow. Only Henry can get close to being convicted for corruption. You will see how these cases will simply drag until they convict RB on a minor offence of defeating the ends of justice or failure to provide the source of funds.

    • Only someone from PF can have a press conference and not have his facts straight. Hon. Kabimba, and you say you’re a lawyer, who’s the prime minister of Thailand? You’re embarrassing Zambia on the international stage just like your boss embarrasses us.
      If this man, who’s not even in zambia can cause confusion among you guys in PF,then his a good lawyer.

    • @Saulosi, for the first time ever, I agree with you. Kabimba does rock.

      There are a myriad of reasons a person “rocks”.

      Most commonly it’s a symptom of a mental disorder such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder …….the list goes on.

      I’ll leave it to you to decide which it is.

  3. Why is Robert Amsterdam becoming a factor in our political scenario? Is he a Zambian? If he is not then let him cut off his nose from Zambian politics and whoever shares a plat form with him does not have a heart for Zambia. We can differ internally because of divergent views, but let us avoid drawing in outsiders. It is like a marriage if you are fond of engaging outsiders in any marital affair, just know that your marriage will never be respected and will not last!

  4. This Kabimba acting as a lead dog of Sata PF bad governance will not change the bad image of Zambia PF has created to the world. Kabimba is vile and full of bitterness. PF is in power and Kabimba is its justice minister and yet can hardly demonstrate leadership that benefits the nation except bitterness and hatred statements coming from him day after day. Zambia is bleeding with poverty, high prices of basic food commodities, roads and schools un attended to, PF militias hacking innocent citizens and corruption is high as ever and freedom of Zambians curtailed. Give the nation a break.

  6. Kabimba, how far could you have gone in your Law career if Sata never took you under his wing and made you Secretary General of PF. Just face it, you are just a lousy lawyer and you are nothing without the protection of Sata. Just wait until Sata falls, the little allies you’ve got will also turn against you. You will be crushed to dust my friend. You need to sober up and humble your self a great deal.

    • It does not matter whether Winter is lousy lawyer or not. The truth is he went to UNZA law school. So you want him to sober up? You can dance to the tune of that useful i.d.i.o.t Amsterdam and ask him to sober up.

    • I do not care about Amsterdam my friend. To me he is a non entity. If kabimba is one of the best Lawyers that UNZA can produce then I fear for our children wanting to go through that school. But let’s be honest with ourselves Sabaila, would you appoint Kabimba to represent you in a life or death case? This man is just a politician and a bad one at such who is depending on Sata.

  7. It is dumbfounding that aspiring presidential candidates (Mumba and HH) and former president (RB) can possibly continue to associate with this fo.ol in Amesterdam after his exposure. This guy’s clients are desperate millionaires ( Russian Oligarchs, Taiwan former president, RB etc ). While amassing a lot of money, he has never won any case and he only thrives on media propagamda. What kind of a lawyer is that? Maybe he should be called an international manipulator. But Alas the opposition that should be representing us find him credible. Why they cannot just google him is beyond me. If this internatiional lawyer really cares he should report the plight of women in Saudi Arabia, who are not allowed to drive in the 21st century and America will tell where to go.

    • International Conman or not I would hire him if I were RB. At this point I would be looking for someone with a big mouth that shouts loudest to bring attention to my plight.

      Indications are that he will not get justice by hiring someone that PF can manipulate/threaten.

      It’s do or die for him in this justice-free environment that is Zambia today.

      Any lawyer defending RB would be blacklisted and unprotected from the wrath of PF et al.
      Would you take the risk?

      0

      0
    • Also, RBs concern right now is not finding a lawyer who respects ordinary Zambians.
      It’s keeping his head connected to his neck for as long as possible in any way he can.

      Does he need to be tried before a court? – bring the charges and arrest him, and then conduct a fair trial. If guilty, punish him lawfully, that’s all.

  16. A “pretend” foreigner lawyer calls all of you “useful !d!ots” and you applaud and give thumbs up? Why, because to some of you anything FOREIGN is RIGHT and SACRED? Well, at least this so called “International lawyer” was smart enough to know how some Zambians think, and he decided to included “International” as a prefix to his name—it seems to have worked wonders for RB, HH, Mumba and their sycophants—they seem to think he his the ‘Einstein’ of our jurisprudence.

    Now he is the advocate for poor Zambians who he insulted not too long ago. Did Rupiah hire him to comment on Zambian economic/subsidy policies too? Yeah, and people have the audacity to say Kabimba is wrong by stating that some of you folks in MMD and UPND suffer from a ‘DAMNING INFERIORITY COMPLEX!

He calls you “useful *****s” and you are busy smiling….shame. Let Ruphia Banda pay for his sins, you know what he did with impunity, allow his children illegally running the affairs of the nation and every saw this, including some of these disgraced politicians like HH, even though some people are busy cheating to each other that he has agained popularity. Have you forgetten the issue of ZAMTEL, Mobile hospitals, tempt to sell all government schools to individuals, sell of National Airport, Post office and Zesco. His children were turned into international estate agents by now Zambia could have been reaped off BUT GOD loves this country.

      We want the proper course of law taken, that’s all.
      As for hiring a foreign lawyer, he has the right to hire whomever he likes. I can only guess at his reasoning – hire a foreign lawyer who cannot be threatened or manipulated as a local one would be.

  18. @ Ndobo, I can sense a lot of anger in your attack to my comment. Generally, you are the one who is a blind follower of i.d.i.o.t.s. like Amsterdam. You are a f.o.o.l. who is not ashamed of your comments. It is not about Kabimba, your bitterness is about the new government in power. You have no power to remove this GRZ bwana. Try in 2016 and you will be disappointed yet again. Get lost and go to hell, some of us love our country. I will defend my country no matter what. On the other hand, some of you look like you have nothing to do but are just waiting like vultures for any article to do with GRZ and comment. I can tell by your comments. Everyday you have something to bark about. Anyway dogs normally bark at air.

    He defends Banda and sons, the we discover 2% in contract, wrongs in Nigerian Fuels, Mpundu Trust, I/Hills flats deals
    He goes to French speaking radio station denouncing zambia, for what? For representing Bandas?
    He is commenting on Banda’s personal Passport, let alone not being allowed to go outside the country because of court cases and other suspect issues of wrong doing!
    He swings to subsidies!
    He is commenting on cases that is in courts;
    He is insulting Zambians;

Sadly those who are home in Zambia who even comment on this are risking your lives. Your lines are been tapped into.

    Zambia was peaceful but no longer the Power Failure regime. Mind what you are commenting on. We are not safe in Zambia. Sad! Sad! Sad that even the Acting President can say such silly things as We don’t care like that. Uyu mwana wa ku very silly! Its like that vibana vakukomboni when they assume power. Let him defend the plight of Chawama residents, if he can’t, let the Chawama people kill the PF thugs.
