REVELATIONS that an opposition party is building a mansion for a judge on the Constitutional Court should trigger action by law enforcement agencies,
especially that the Judiciary is flooded with matters of national interest, Justice Minister Given Lubinda has said.

Mr Lubinda charged that it was very alarming for an opposition leader to build a house for a judge, amid the many petitions that had been brought before the Judiciary

He said that enforcement agencies should not wait to be told to investigate illegalities that were being exposed in the media.

Mr Lubinda, who is Kabwata Mmber of Parliament, pointed out that the media played a critical role of shining light where people had created darkness.

He reiterated that it was the duty of the Anti-Corruption Commission and other enforcement agencies to investigate activities that might be illegal.

“ACC does not only operate on the basis of someone going there to report that such a person is involved in this and that. ACC is mandated to investigate any matter irrespective of how they got to know about it.

“The media play a critical role of shining light where people had created darkness. So, revelations that an opposition party is building a mansion for a judge on the Constitutional Court should trigger action by law enforcement agencies,” Mr Lubinda said.

Mr Lubinda said law enforcement agencies should take keen interests in the assertions that an opposition party was building a mansion for a judge.

He said that investigative wings should find out who was financing the house being built, whose was it, and what agreements the parties involved had.

Mr Lubinda said investigative wings should be proactive, and not wait for instructions to do their job.

    • Lubinda you are a BIG LET DOWN! Not even sure what to make of this and it is coming from the entire Justice Minister. PF seems to twist things each time they think it will be favourable for them. What is this if not empty allegations … and when people say the PF is corrupt u start crying false accusations. I see how you are taking Zambians for a ride it is unbelievable to say the least

    • What kind of Judges is Edgar Lungu appointing that they cab accept a house from an opposition leader? That is the meaning of Lubinda’s statement. It seems to me that Lubinda knows evidence before the court is overwhelming and PF know that their day of reckoning is coming and this a way to intimidate the Judges

    • “ACC does not only operate on the basis of someone going there to report that such a person is involved in this and that. ACC is mandated to investigate any matter irrespective of how they got to know about it.”

      Really? How about doing some investigations on the purchase of the Ambulances @ $288,000 each?, Illegal export of Mukula tree? Mr.Klaba’s accusation of corruption in pf?
      Please don’t divert people’s attention from the Cholera scandal.

KALABA AND KAMBWILI PLAYED LIKE A MEDIA ROLE TO ALERT ACC do own investigations but KULI ZII , hence you produce the EVIDENCE and if the conCOURT judge paid for services he is free to use any contractor whether a PF OR NON PARTISAN

      IS THERE EVIDENCE AS HAS BEEN THE SONG OF EACH AND EVERY PF LEADER; Hon Lubinda may just find himself on the expulsion scoreboard of the PF if he continues to contradict the powers that be in PF – this is free advice for my friend. THE RULE OF LAW IN PF IS “PROVIDE EVIDENCE”

  3. Given, you are a senior minister. It’s not becoming of you start spreading rumours.
    This is cheap politicking which seems to be a ploy to discredit the concourt judges who are perceived as opposed to EL 2021 candidature. We dont need that

  6. Cadre Lubinda, there is a Daughter of an extremely Top Government official who has built EXPENSIVE Luxury flats in Lusaka, despite this girl not having a proper job that could finance such a project. This girl even has her name plastered all over the entrance to that Complex.
    I’M WAITING FOR YOU TO DIRECT YOUR COMPROMISED A.C.C TO PROBE A.S.A.P!!
    I’ve also got a good memory Cadre Lubinda! When Zambia won the under 20 Africa Cup many moons ago, one of your dear P.F. Thug officials assaulted a Female Police officer, & a statement was released by your rotten P,F Cabal saying “We are investigating”
    As the Justice P.F Cadre, can you please update us how the investigation concluded, if ever it was started?
    WHEN WE SAY P.F IS A JOKE, THAT IS ONLY SERIOUS & PROACTIVE WHEN ITS TIME FOR…

  10. Mr Lubinda who is Kabwata Mmber of Parliament, pointed out that the media played a critical role of shining light where people had created darkness.
    This light should be applauded whenever it is being shone. Being shone at the opposition or the ruling party. All Zambia’s ruling parties dont like this light being shone at them. That is why they hang on to controlling DeadNBC Times and Daily Mail.
