Government has ruled out discontinuing the ongoing consultations on whether Zambia should leave or maintain its membership to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Justice Minister Given Lubinda says the consultations will go on despite advice from the Civil Society Constitution Agenda to discontinue the process in view of President Edgar Lungu’s position on the matter, and the general view of the people of Zambia that Zambia maintains its ICC membership.

Mr. Lubinda is shocked and saddened that some civil society organizations want to curtail the process of citizens being involved in the governance process of their Country.

He has wondered how the civil society organizations could have known that people want Zambia to remain a member of the ICC without consulting them first.

In an interview, Mr. Lubinda told QTV News that government does not in fact think it would make sense to discontinue the consultations when it’s half way in the process of getting people’s views.

He said he is personally happy that the majority of Zambians want to take part in the governance process and have since seized the opportunity to be heard by making submissions.
Mr Lubinda stated that government has in this case also been vindicated that it has no pre-determined position on whether Zambia should leave or maintain its membership to the ICC.

Meanwhile Mr.Lubinda has said there was no active case involving Zambia at the International Criminal Court(ICC).He said that the ICC confirmed this when his office inquired, just before the commencement of consultations on whether Zambia should remain a member of the court.

Mr Lubinda said unlike in other countries whether presidents and government made the decision on their own, President Edgar Lungu has chosen to give Zambians the chance to make the decision.
He explained that this was because the ICC matter borders of security and can help keep politicians in check.Mr.Lubinda emphasized that it would not have been prudent for President Lungu to make a decision on his own on matter that concerns all Zambians, as the ICC mainly deals with serious cases against humanity.

  1. Lubinda I am just as shocked.

    A democracy is all about consultation.

    The same democracy this organisation and UPND are craving doesn’t exist.

    They cant have it both way,

    Please ignore them and continue surprising everyone one of us on the hardwork you are doing.

    You have a fan here

    Thanks

      ‘Running……am so impressed by the growing number of early morning joggers along GER and Addis Ababa. These guys are running from 4 am to 6am. My appeal is please get proper night jogging gear. Dark skin and dark clothes merge with tarmac. Put on some reflective vest or bands. We can’t rely on your eyes shining kwati nika pushi or your teeth. Am calling on Rtsa to mount a road block and charge these runners with dangerous jogging. Serious you gonna die running without reflectors’

      Fisho why didnt you build sidewalks when you were Mayor. Busy chasing skirts instead of working. Now you have solutions?

    • “The decision by AU member states welcomes the announced withdrawals by South Africa, Burundi, and Gambia, adopts the “ICC withdrawal strategy,” and calls for member states to consider implementing its recommendations. This is based on text we have seen that, while labeled a draft, reflects the final text, sources close to the
      A general view shows the headquarters of the African Union (AU) building in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa, January 29, 2017.
      But there was vocal opposition by ministers to withdrawal at last week’s AU summit.

      Meanwhile, the “strategy” does not actually call for mass withdrawal, based on the text that Human Rights Watch reviewed. The document instead states: “Further research on the idea of collective withdrawal, a concept that has not yet been recognized by international law, is required.”

      Instead the document revisits AU concerns with the court—including its relationship with the United Nations Security Council and a bid to amend the court’s statute to exempt sitting leaders implicated in widespread atrocities. The document…

  3. ICC memberships became an issue when Africans tuned out to be easy targets. The outcry was based on stereotyping and profiling Africans as criminally inclined, like the American pit bull terrier dog is portrayed as notorious for attacking anything. It did not really matter whether Africans were indeed committing the said political crimes, including genocide. To negotiate an acceptable deal, it became necessary to kick start the process by suspending membership in order to create vital space for soul searching and reflection. The process was adopted as an item worthy to be included on the agenda of AU HQ in Addis Ababa. Since that time, nothing has really changed. Why can’t the accused be tried in their own regions? Why can regional jurisdiction be exhausted before involving The Hague?…

    • This whole exercise is by one man and for his sole benefit only – EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU. No other Zambian will ever go to the ICC. Only Lungu is capable of killing Zambians without our own judiciary dealing with him. The ICC will only be invoked when the local laws and judiciary cannot deal with the culprit. The big question is: WHAT IS LUNGU PLANNING AGAINST ZAMBIANS WHO DO NOT SUPPORT HIM? IS HE PLANNING GENOCIDE? IS THAT THE REASON HE WANTS TO LEAVE THE ICC?

To imagine that 8 months after the General election some people are still allowed to drive vehicles that are bearing the initials of a politician is total breakdown of order in this country. Only those who break the law are scared of the ICC. So do we want law breakers to take over this great nation of hours Dr.?

  4. The Press Release on the AU Website clears states that Lungu voted for Zambia to pull out of ICC. Lungu did this at the recent AU Summit in Addis Ababa,Ethiopia. Lungu was persuaded to vote for the Resoution by MU7, Al Bashir,Mugabe, Zuma etc. When the South African Concourt blocked Zuma from pulling South Africa from ICC and Zambians across the Board showed fierce opposition to Zambia leaving the ICC Lungu was forced to rethink the move. This is a tactical retreat by Lungu who had promised Mu7,Mugabe and Al Bashir a quick withdrawal from ICC. Lungu is looking for an excuse to explain why Zambia is no longer leaving ICC. Who knows there might have been money changes in the proposed Zambian withdrawal. Its called damage Control.

And the urgency of Lungu wanting to leave the ICC proves that he is running out of time in terms of his plans against the opposition.

  8. Bo- Lubinda, Let your government continue with the consultations and eventually full withdraw from this stuuupid “Washington Consensus” court called ICC. The so called Zambian civil society organizations ONLY speaks when the funds have been deposited into their bank accounts by these MUZUNGUS. The so called moral judges of human rights (USA + UK…) aint’t even members of this stuuupid court. They (USA AND UK) together have wrought the most human rights abuses the world over, and NO ONE including these called Zambian civil society organizations voice these issues up!
    Next regime in Zambia, Please MY GOD, ought to be Military rule where these stuupid civil society organizations will be banned for siding with a colonial enemy of Zambia and the eastern world as whole.

When you and your relatives are killed by PF and Lungu, the way Mugabe killed Ndebeles during Gukurahundi in early 1980s or Al Bashir killed the Dafuris, you same idyots will be running to the West for protection. Why are Middle Eastern Arabs and West Africans camping in Western Europe as refugees instead of staying home? Why does Lungu run to the IMF to be saved from his own stoopid economic suicide programs?

    • It does not matter whether the USA or the UK belong to the ICC or not. Those countries have strong institutions that can check their President or Prime Minister as the case may be. Holders of Constitutional offices in those countries are independent and can be relied on to make decisions and pass judgements that are objective regardless of the opinion of the President. We are a third world country with no independent institutions apart from the Church. Our Police Service are daily threatening and warning the Opposition. This would not be tolerated in countries where Constitutions are respected. We are at the mercy of whatever devil or angel, genius or imbecile comes into power. The country has to remain in the ICC for the safety of its people. Who will control Lungu or any future…

    • I support you completely on the reasons to withdraw. I wonder how and why we even became part of this ICC in the first place. However its the cost attached to this ‘consultation’ process. At the time Zambia is in billions of DOLLARS debt and in need of every penny, is this really the right time to be spending such amounts of money on this subject?? There are so many pressing issues where money is needed, just the other day we heard of nurses who are yet to be on payroll.
      Its the timing of this needless expenditure that is an issue. There are more needy areas were money should be spent on at the moment. That is why others are saying the minister has his priorities upside down not that he should not review our stay in ICC.

    • Ba ABM,
      Have you completely lost your mind Sir? All the African Presidents who are wanted at the ICC are those who have killed their own people or have resisted leaving office when they lost elections. Just next door, Kabila has refused to step down even though his term has already ended. Are these the kind of people you want to protect from the ICC. The ICC is a Court to institute justice when citizens are powerless to do so against an armed criminal with his cohorts holding a country hostage with a sycophantic police and army. This can easily happen to us now with Lungu or in the future with Chipimo, HH or whoever. The Congolese or Somalians are NOT stu.pid. They are just powerless.

The European population only represents 1/5 of the world population… and Africa with 54+ countries have NO say in the security council, and who’s vote as a continent is more powerful than the European combined. Try not to bring your ignorance or lack of sound understanding of global institutions on here. The UN is the cause of Africa’s down-fall… They only provide African countries with aid/ especially for HIV/AIDS in order shut US/African leader up, and hence forget about our calls for representation in the security council/for a permanent seat.

  22. The AU is heavily divided over the ICC, with East African leaders facing strong resistance from their West African counterparts in their campaign to whip up hostility towards the court.
    Opposition towards the 11-year-old ICC runs deepest in East Africa – not surprising as two of the region’s presidents – Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir and Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta – have been indicted, while Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto is already on trial on charges of crimes against humanity.
    “There are strong passions around the issue. The ICC has been on the agenda of every AU summit since Mr Bashir’s indictment,” Steven Gruzd, an analyst with the South African Institute of International Affairs, told the BBC.

  23. Despite widespread speculation that the summit will consider calling on all 34 African members to pull out of the ICC, Kenya’s Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed said on Wednesday that it was “quite naive” to think that leaders would “come together with the sole aim” of breaking ties with the court.
    Mr Ruto’s and Mr Kenyatta’s trials are unprecedented – they are the first serving leaders to be tried by an international court.

  25. On Monday, about 130 non-governmental organisations wrote an open letter to the AU, warning that “any withdrawal from the ICC would send the wrong signal about Africa’s commitment to protect and promote human rights and to reject impunity”.
    Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has also warned African leaders not to quit the ICC.

    “If they fight the ICC, vote against the ICC, withdraw their cases, it will be a badge of shame for each and every one of them and for their countries if they do that,” he said, when delivering the annual Desmond Tutu Peace Lecture in Cape Town on Monday.

  26. “It will require the head of state, who made a promise during the election campaign to co-operate with the ICC, to deposit a motion at the UN saying: ‘We are withdrawing.’ It’s not a politically intelligent thing to do.
    But international lawyers argue that the whole point of the ICC is to prevent national leaders from using the “shield” of immunity to escape prosecution for the atrocities which some have been accused of carrying out.

    In my conclusion this may sound bitter to people like Lubinda but this information if helpful to citizens of Zambia so that they know the strategy of the Leadership in place today. You shall be butchered like Kampasa people, Chawama people and a lot. Even kill all NGOs and Mother church bodies with a no say.
