Justice Minister Given Lubinda
Justice Minister Given Lubinda

Minister of Justice Given Lubinda yesterday mocked a fake resignation letter that was circulated on social media saying that he had resigned from his Ministerial position .

When Parliament resumed yesterday afternoon, Hon Lubinda caused drama when he was spotted seated at the back bench.

This prompted a point-of order that was raised by Chembe Member of Parliament, Hon Sebastian Kopulande, who wanted the Speaker the House to inform them why Hon. Lubinda was seated at the back bench.

In his ruling, the Speaker stated that he is quick to implement such decision especially regarding sitting arrangements.

When the audio of the exchange with the Speaker went viral, it caused more confusion as he seemed to confirm the assertions that Hon. Lubinda had resigned especially that a fake letter circulated last night on social media, purporting to show his resignation.

Parliament is in Session and Hon Lubinda has since returned to his seat at the Front Bench.

A member of Parliament explained what happened.

“When we entered Parliament, Hon. Lubinda said he was going to sit in the backbench to tease those who fabricated that letter about his resignation.”

“When Hon. Kopulande was raising a point of order Hon. Lubinda sat in the backbench, while Hon. Kopulande was on the floor Hon. Lubinda moved and sat next to Hon. Kopulande (still in the backbench).”

“By the time the Speaker was passing his rulling, Hon. Lubinda had moved back to his ministerial seat”

    • There is no more substance in Lubinda. The earlier he goes so as some of his cohorts, the better.

      God bless Zambia.

    • @Mushota, I stopped to send congratulations on you pregnancies. The past 5 were enough. I just don’t like the manner in which your Indian doctor harvest baby parts with scissors from your womb.
      I don’t know who is worst sinner, between PF million dollars thieves or you who sell own-baby organs.

  2. This is how they mock you Zambians after stealing your resources and hard earned tax payers money. Elisa my blonde swiss wife was frustrated dealing with corrupt Zambians officials when she worked on a high profile project in Zambia. In end she tendered her resignation. I supported her fully and understood all the issues she went through. Theft is part and parcel of most Zambians. Me and Elisa are off to malta for holidays. Lots of love making and bonding. It’s good for youthfulness that’s why we still look in our 20s.

  3. There is a calibre of people that are capable of resigning. Slippery hair is not one of them. He depends too much on taxpayers money

    • Peter Njobvu – You would fooooolish to believe anything that come out of this yellow bellied coward Bo Lubinda …when he was clobbered by those boys he rushed like a school boy to Kabwata Police to file a report yet publicly he was saying he was not touched. Wynter Kabimba knew how to did with this two faced coward.

  4. That reveals that our Representatives in parliament are not serious. It looks like the person who raised the Point of Order and the Speaker where both part of the Prank. Next time the same persons will blame the media for misrepresenting facts when they are the ones creating an enabling environment for Journalists to do so.

    • Given Lubinda says President Edgar Lungu is begging him to stay on as minister of justice despite writing to him that he wants to go.
      But Lubinda tells his confidants that he will demand that the PF central committee should adopt all the resolutions of the National Dialogue Forum for him to stay on.
      Lubinda resigned two days ago after the PF central committee rejected most of the NDF resolutions that Lubinda had been trying to infuse in the constitution. Some of the things Lubinda wants to be put in the constitution is the creation of the position of deputy minister and the article making it possible for creation of coalition government.
      Earlier, Lubinda was manhandled by Kabwata residents who accused him of selling Kabwata market to Choppies.
      According to Lubinda’s close associates,…

  5. WE HAVE TIME TO DISCUSS WHY SOME ONE IS NOT SITTING IN THEIR SIT AND WE HAVE TIME TO GO TO PARLIAMENT TO GO AND SHOW OFF TO OUR HATERS. THIS INDISCIPLINE IS THE REASON WHY OUR COUNTRY IS IN DISARRAY. WHEN WE ARE NO LONGER CALLED A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY GOING TO PARLIAMENT TO MAKE JOKES WILL BE ACCEPTEABLE. MR LUCINDA WITH RESPECT OUR CONSTITUTION IS NOT COMPLETE AND YOUR FOCUS SHOULD BE ON THAT…. MR SPEAKER FAILURE TO PUNISH PEOPLE WHO COME TO MAKE JOKES IN PARLIAMENT SHOWS YOUR LACK OF FOCUS ON THE JOB.

  6. Lack of seriousness. So people can actually write a letter addressed to State House and after that say it was a prank? No it was not a prank. eagle One must have refused this one due to recent changes in Parliament and in Cabinet, it was going to reflect badly on ECL. Whichever way, it shows lack of seriousness in our Speaker and MP/Minister. Go and tease your grandchildren at home, not in Parliament!!!

  8. He ‘Lubinda’ may be trying to erase the slaps he received from Kabwata market, he well knows he’s gonna be the center of cruel debates especially from the opposition Parliamentarians, but that won’t be forgotten easily, its gonna haunt him down so long he’s a parliamentarian.

  9. Thats komboni nzelu indeed. I agree with Ndeti Nati!
    Just why did he do that??? Waisting peoples’ time in parliament playing games. These adults are a let down indeed. One can just wonder how childish people can be in parliament. This is misguided anger. He should not have done that in parliament for heavens sake.
    Now we can see how childish these MPS are. The speaker should punish him for fooling the house and waisting its time to work on serous business of the day. Its not fools day all the time baba!!!
    Disaster!!!!

  10. It’s a worrying thing when your constituents begin beating and chasing you down, especially if you are Justice administer.

    I think, pranks and fake news aside, it’s TIME FOR PF TO TIGHTEN AUTHORITY to maintain a safe environment for citizens.

    Market places are becoming the centre for mafia like activities a long criminal traders.
