Patriotic Front Member of the Central Committee Given Lubinda has described the report by Amnesty International about Zambia as rubbish and that should never be tolerated by Zambians.
Speaking during a capacity-building workshop with PF candidates at various levels in Mumbwa District, Mr Lubinda said it is sad that some political parties are doing everything within their powers to use international organizations to paint Zambia black in the eyes of the international community just to win international sympathy.
Mr. Lubinda said Zambia is one of the signatories to various human rights Charters and has been praised for being a peaceful nation and a firm believer in human rights.
He said the Head of State and the PF family will never sacrifice any life for political sake.
He said this is why President Lungu has constantly condemned the violence of all forms regardless of the perpetrator.
He said it is therefore irresponsible for Amnesty International to produce fake and unfounded reports purporting that Zambia is currently a dictatorship nation.
He said people can play politics but should never sell the country for political expedience.
Mr. Lubinda who is also campaign manager for PF and President Edgar Lungu’s Running mate, Professor Nkandu Luo said, President Lungu has won peace medals on merit and the world knows so.
He said politics should be about ideas and not going to international bodies to dent the country because whatever will come out will affect the whole country.
The former Kabwata lawmaker and Immediate past Minister of Justice told the candidates that they should engage in issue-based politics as guided by President Edgar Lungu.
And former Mandevu Constituency Member of Parliament Jean Kapata told the candidates not to engage in violence as PF should take the lead in promoting peace. Ms. Kapata said it is better to run away when provoked than retaliating.
She said Zambia was founded on principles of one Zambia one Nation and this should be followed if we are to honour our late founding father Dr. Kenneth Kaunda.
And speaking earlier, former PF Mpika Central Member of Parliament, Sylvia Chalikosa told the candidates that they should work on bringing more people on board for the boat still has capacity for more people.
Mrs. Chalikosa said the adopted candidates should work at bringing back those who were not adopted and decided to leave so that they can work together.
She said not being adopted is not the end of the world and that there are a number of responsibilities that one can take up within the party.
No, rather Zambians should put PF in the rubbish bin! This report only confirms what all Zambians see and hear. Can you imagine not a single person brought to book for gassing civilians and yet this so called justice minister continued to draw a salary.
What should not be toralete is having caders who can even slap a Minister in public. If they can slap a Minister of Justice, what can they do to me a mere citizen out there?
LUBINDA KEEP QUIET ! WE ARE TIRED OF YOUR LIES AND STORIES !
@Mwabupo u are spot on. The Amnesty International Report is factual and details crimes committed by this ECL Govt. Lubinda cannot dispute that nobody has been convicted for these crimes. Fifty People were gassed to death who was convicted of this crime? Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda were gunned down by ZPS. Who has been convicted for this crime? Amnesty International is very correct this ECL Govt is Ruling thru fear and Repression. That is why ECL and PF must be voted out of Power on August 12 without fail.
There’s no dictatorship in Zambia. I have never seen any dictatorship in this country, especially under the reign of President Lungu.
It’s rather ironic and absolutely amazing that in the 21st century, the PF think people are stupid. People are not blind any longer. The AI report is only the confirmation of what is the state of affairs in our lovely Zambians. We got technology and people got phones now anywhere they live connected to the internet and social media and other outlets where they can listen and perhaps contribute to the debate on national matters and here a man like Lubinda with no shame at all thinks otherwise. Theses are not the leaders we need honestly. I hate to say it, but I loathe vision less people. And please do not use KK’s death as a means to blanket the many many wrongs of PF and ECL. I would like to urge bro Lubinda to take a back seat and chill. We are not living in the UNIP days . This is a new…

This has become the norm under Lazy Lungu and PF …they just deny and rubbish everything…another 5 years of this!!
You wonder where the inept President himself is
In what year was a Zambian Minister slapped by ruling party cadres?
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS LUBINDA
FIRST THE IMF ARE LOAN SHARKS NOW AI IS A USELESS MEANINLESS ORGANISATION
IT WAS ONLY REPRESENTING THE REALIRTY OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN ZAMBIA WHICH THE MAJORTY OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG
JUST START PACKING YOUR BAGS GOOD BYE AND GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU
MODERATING AN INNOCENT STATEMENT
In which year was a Zambian Minister slapped by the ruling Party cadres???
Which Zambians Ba Lubinda which Zambians heh???
Thank goodness the world is watching!!!
Mr lubinda world is watching so next you will
Want help from donors.So be careful what
You are saying will come back to you.There
Is some truth in what they are saying.
Fcuk amnesty those imperial f00Is. Remember amnesty does not vote. Don’t get too excited ba upnd
John Mwaka, slapping a Minister is committing a crime, it does not mean the country is under dictatorship. In which year was French President was slapped by common man?
WE THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA SUPPORT AND APPRECIATE YOU WORDS AI
PEOPLE WITH BLIND FAITH WILL SOON BE ABLE TO OPEN THEIR EYES WHEN PF GOVERNMENT IS PUT TO REAT IN AUGUST
THE WORLD WILL HEAR THE REJOICING ACROSS THE OCEANS
Most of our leaders exercise what I can call excellent stupidity. The fact you have signed on to some pieces of paper doesn’t make you compliant. How many dictators have abused their people and yet attend UN meetings and even chair bodies that have to do with humane treatment of people? Just reduce what you are saying — insoni e buntu.
The truth really hurts when you have been caught on the wrong side of the law. In this case the ruling party has been found wanting and so it is not surprising that wrong doers are hurt by the findings of Amnesty International. Shame on them!
“He said this is why President Lungu has constantly condemned the violence of all forms regardless of the perpetrator.” If I may ask, what is the job of the President and his cabinet??
Condemning violence is for NGOs and opposition parties – the Govt’s job is to END violence. BIG difference, that’s y you in charge of the police, military etc. You see, PF stop violence because majority of the time they are the perpetrators of it.
Zambians this year will vote out PF, one is the reason for this is the level of violence
“……has been praised for being a peaceful nation and a firm believer in human rights.”
The truth is PF has removed all the feathers from that chicken.
We are mourning the person WHO deserves that PRAISE for having ZAMBIA being a peaceful nation. Its an insult to KK especially during this mourning period for one to claim the praise.
“……He said the Head of State and the PF family will never sacrifice any life for political sake….”
Why did you gass our people leading to the lynching deaths of more than 50 people ?
the reason not to vote for UNPD. Our resources will be sold for a song. They tried violence, petitions, cry baby, USA democrats strategy, South Africa finance minister propaganda, IMF, convid-19, LAZ and an international fimo fimo. All have failed to induce a wind of change. PF is a safe party today.
Given Lubinda ** pako
Lubinda, tell us who gassed (act of genocide) our brothers and sisters simple. Stop fooling us, there has been more violence on your clock. Any way the bottom line is that your time is up, in other words time for nonsense is over!
Do you remember what you said after being beaten by your cadres, it was the worst kind of humiliation to have gone through as a person who had diligently served the nation, adding that he was extremely fearful for Zambia that a Cabinet Minister with 24-hour security could be beaten in public.
where is the slapper,need you here
I pity him for being slapped by his own cadres. He does not have a grade 12 certificate and excuse his understanding of things. Amnesty can just wake up and write things, the normal thing to do is study the report and say, this we agree, this we don’t, this we will work on it, that is a mature way of handling such things Mr Perfect
Iwe KZ. When your boss heads to the ICC you shall follow him he will need your blowjob skills.
Lubinda, You the entire PF to widhook Zambia over Bill 10.! You are most untrustworthy government Zambia has ever seen. ” Pride comes before the fall and arrogant heart, before destruction. ‘
The Amnesty International report is a record of extrajudicial killings during ECL’s Reign since 2015. Nobody has been convicted for the listed killings. Lubinda cannot deny or rubbish those killings becoz they happened. The killings make a sad reading but shows why Zambians should remove this ECL Govt from Power on August 12. If ECL is not voted out of Power there will worse killings and gassings of innocent Zambians. Yesterday it was Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda tumoro it is u and me. This Brutal Lungu Regime is igniting a Rwanda type of Civil War. We must resist this and keep our : “One Zambia One Nation”. We must vote out of Power this divisive Lungu Govt. On August 12 lets make sure violent, Corrupt, Wasteful, incompetent and Visionless and Tribalist ECL is put to “ku…
Scouser is that what you do in Europe there for a living. Unyonka m.b.o.l.o yabankote. Fuseke!!
FORWARD IWE lab assistant.
