Given Lubinda
Justice Minister Given Lubinda has charged that opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is the biggest political disaster the country has ever seen.

Mr Lubinda said it is unfortunate that he has allowed to abuse the courts of Law and disparage the Judical system in the country.

He said the opposition leader is a self-centered man with an over-grown ego who only thinks about himself and has had never had never had the interestsof the country at his political heart.

He accused Mr Hichilema of cultivating the propenisty of abusing the courts of law and discrediting the Judicial system in the name of democracy and freedom of expression.

Mr Lubinda who the Kabwata Lawmaker was reacting to the Prouncements by Mr Hichilema that Zambian judges were a disaster.

“Mr Hichilema has been abusing the country’s Judges and judicial system with impunity for a long time and that it regreatable that the opposition leader has been using democracy to propagate his hatred against the countries judicial syetem.

“How can one appeal to a local court over a matter that has been decided upon by the constitutional court “i do not know what Hichichilema is thinking, taking a case that has been decided upon by the cinstitutional court to a local court” Mr lubinda said.

Further Mr Lubinda described Mr Hichilema as the biggest disaster he hasever known.

Mr Lubinda said the Opposition leader is hell bent on castigating judges whenever they did not rule in his favour saying “there is no need to castigate innocent judges and that you should instead report to judicial Complaints Authority.”

He advised Mr Hichilema to seek redress from the courts whenever aggrieved instead of venting his anger on the judges.

  1. President FTJ Chiluba is the biggest political disaster Zambia has ever seen, followed by HH, and GBM in close third. Kambwili and davis Mwila are 4 and 5 interchangeably.

    • Bo Lubinda, HH is not the only one commenting on judges,,,, if you are truly a minister of justice, not a minister of disaster, you will start by slapping ka lifwekelo on the face who is threatening to arrest a judge

      There is a few political ministerial prostitutes and Given is, he knows it himself.

      I have little to to respect to “yes men”.

    • Hahaha..the truth hurts!
      Had Hungry Hyena not been so selfish and self centred he would’ve been President by now and Nez, Spaka and co his nephews would have posts somewhere in the foreign service. The PF/UPND alliance was clear- HH was to be the vice President and successor to MCS but stu.pidity is in abundance in Hungry Hyenas and his dicisples case so they lost out, and have been cursed ever since! Opportunity comes but once but a fo.ol will never cease it. Well said mbo Lubinda, well said.

    • Only fo0ls will agree with this ***** lubinda.

      They all fear HH and hence thinking with drawing from the ICC will save Lungu with his cohorts from the wrath of Zambians

      HH is marely giving these *****s a run for their money. All the LT supporters of PF are in diplomatic missions and know that once PF or Lungu is gone then they will be jobless.

      Lies has short legs and does not go far

      Where is Kambwili today? Where is Mmembe today? Where is stupid Akufuna today?

      PF should prepare for their painfull down fall very soon.

    • No the worst was Mwanawasa the cabbage. He was a useless leader who just championed a selective ‘fight against corruption’ as a political gimmick, for a political milage.. SHAME. Mwanawasa was just a bitter man full of hatred for a certain tribe to the point of insulting that tribe, and he is loved by the bantu botatwes for that..tamwakwata mano. The Cabbage used actually to be led or controlled by Mauleen who worked tooth and nail to grab as much money as possible. I pray that Mauleen should be investigated one day. Umulande taubola

    • Laughable Nonsense the PF are a disaster I would on any day tolerate a “disaster” opposition than a a disaster Party running the affairs of this country. State house has castigated judges before through Amos Chanda …. Chapona as a Presido has gone against the constitution and allowed Ministers to serve illegally for the first time in this country and he is a Lawyer…..So Lubinda in this case is simply being a Cadre demeaning an opposition Member

  3. Lubinda! It’s you who is a disaster. It’s apparent that you don’t have any idea about the workings of the judiciary, a department which you head. Just by way of example, recently, the a federal court of appeal, ninth circuit ruled against trumps illegal executive order banning people from certain regions from entering the US. The Trump team has proceeded to appeal this decision in a lower district court. Please don’t let some here come out with claims of Zambia being different from the US. Law is law and it’s universal,,,, same textbooks, same precedents etc

  4. Though Given is equally a disaster, on this one, we are together speaking as former members.

    When we first proposed to ladies who later became our wives, it was no forcing matter. The yes came after not more than two NOs.

    Three losses are enough to give others a chance also.

    Given, please pass a law to bar individuals with 3 losses from ever contesting future elections. That will help to build intra party democracy.

    We are tired of HH headlines. There are thousands of more sellable candidates to help Zambia out of this Chagwa mess!

  5. Check out this statements:
    “I do not know what Hichichilema is thinking, taking a case that has been decided upon by the constitutional court to a local court”
    and contrast it with this one:
    “He advised Mr Hichilema to seek redress from the courts whenever aggrieved instead of venting his anger on the judges”
    What is Lubinda talking about?

  8. Lubinda is ranting and angry becoz HH & GBM have given the PF govt the biggest headache ever. The PF’s Plan was to steal the Elections, Block the Petition and quickly swear in Lungu back in power. Having used Concourt Night Judges to dismiss the Petition they were hoping the Petition would die a natural death and HH & GBM would give up the fight. The PF govt forgot that although the expanded Bill of Rights was rejected thru the Referendum a limited Bill of Rights remained and is administered by the High Court. Under the current Bill of Rights the Petitioners have constitutional Rights to be heard in Court. The Pf govt if it so wishes should direct the High Court to pass a judgment stating that the High Court has No jurisdiction over the Bill of Rights and has no powers to hear the…

  13. @Allan Mwansa . You are spot on. After 6 months of legal wrangling in the Zambian Courts HH & GBM can now take their Petition to ICC and ICJ. Very soon ECL will be indicted to ICC and join the queue of ICC Fugitives. Let the High Court pass a judgment stating that the High Court has no powers to hear the Petitioners even though the Bill of Rights is under the jurisdiction of the High Court. After 6 months in Zambian Courts, with or without the High Court Judgment the Petitioners are legally entitled to file their Petition with both ICC and ICJ. Even if Lungu rushes to pull Zambia out of the ICC that is too late to stop the Trial. Lubinda is fighting against time and its too late to stop the Petitioners to file their Petition next month. Lungu has to start weighing the prospects of joining…

  18. Lubinda is scared stiff of being indicted to the ICC. The dreadful Petition has troubled Lungu and after 6 months tossing around the Petition the Road to ICC is now clearer. The illegitimate Lungu govt has decided the Petition will not be heard in the Zambian Courts and the Petitioners have no choice but to take their Petition to ICC who will Rule that Lungu was not democratically,lawfully and Constitutionally elected. ICC will Rule HH the Winner of the 2016 Election. Lungu and Lubinda are dead scared of joining Lorrent Gbagbo in the ICC jail in the Hague for committing crimes against Zambians. Lungu is looking for solidarity from Al Bashir who is himself an ICC Fugitive. Birds of the same feathers flock together.

Any person with a sober mind would question the current status of our judicial system. ‘Why didn’t you GL and your President allow the petition to be heard? Why has your government represented by a ‘fraud’ as president unless proven legitimate allowed the two Ministers to stay in office? Aren’t these grounds enough to question? Given Lubinda, you are nothing but a joke. You clever id10ts will face real justice someday. HH should keep banging on for the sake of Zambia. A Justice Minister issuing emotional tantrums without the benefit of intellect, where do we get such people from and why and how do we allow the likes of Lubinda, Lungu, Kalaba and many more empty heads to make decisions on our behalf as a people?

Very interesting, I am not referring to Hon Lubinda’s starement of undisputable fact, by interesting I mean the dwindling number of UPNDonkeys posting comments on LT to support HH their demigod when he is under attack. It must be fatigue, and disappointment too, he has ranted and ranted and ranted or hihoed if you want, but nothing tangible is materialising no ICC, no ICJ no inauguration of HH no nothing but just the fast fading voice of HH and his running mate. Now he even lobbies to meet ECL.

You morons have reduced our judiciary to a circus fit for clowns hell bent on fighting innocent citizens while fattening your pockets through corruption.

There is a saying in chewa which says “Ukavala nzwanzwa usamalumpa moto” (if u are wearing rags, do not jump over the fire”. I may not be a die hard supporter of HH but when it comes to matters of fairness, we all have the duty to see to it that our courts are fair & just. Never hung anyone without a fair trial. This case would have been over a long time had u people not opted to using kangaroo justice system. HH is not the only person calling your judges names bwana minister.

Way back in Ghana, Jerry Rawlings butchered them and today in Ghana you will find very few corrupt judges. But here in Zambia, the bench stinks of skanks!

    It’s wholly untrue that Bembas and Nyanjas make up a majority of our population. We all know that since Mazoka, polls have always been rigged against UPND. They won the last polls hands down! And what you’re suggesting actually confirms that Bemba/Nyanjas won’t vote for someone else so the better we split this country into two the better. And looking at the voting patterns today, the fault line is glaring, it’s just a matter of time before Zambia splits right in the middle. You chaps can link up with Kabila in Katanga and wa Mutharika in Nyasaland!
