He says now that the submissions have been received, the ministry of justice will prepare an amendment bill for consideration by the public as well as members of parliament.

He has told parliament that a technical legal working group comprising staff in his ministry will soon be constituted to analyze the submissions from the various stakeholders.
Mr. Lubinda has however, stated that his ministry has indentified some inconsistencies from the submissions that have been received.
