Justice Minister Mulambo Haimbe has called on various stakeholders to engage the government on calls to abolish the death penalty to come up with a legitimate decision.

Mr. Haimbe said that the new dawn administration maintains an open-door policy on debates to abolish the death penalty, saying the government will continue to seek expert advice whilst providing leadership on the matter.

Mr. Haimbe said this in Lusaka yesterday during the commemoration of World Day against the Death Penalty.

And Human Rights Commission Chairperson Mudford Mwandenga reiterated that the death penalty must be abolished. Mr. Mwandenga said the Commission has over the years been persistently making consultations on the matter.

This is the second year that Zambia is participating in the commemoration of the Word Day against Death Penalty. This year’s event has been commemorated under the theme “women and death penalty an invisible reality”.

  1. The justice minister has to ask stakeholders? He doesn’t have an opinion himself? Coward! Just because the death penalty is irreversible it should be abolished. Every year persons are executed that later are proven to have been innocent. You can release a prisoner from jail, you can’t get a dead person back to be alive.

  2. This too sucks up our our already deflated coffers. Every jocker president wants to govern with their own constitution, amendments every after ruling party change. Will we ever have a Zambian constitution and not the British turn political party constitution?.
    What nonsense.

  3. My contribution: Abolish it after all plunderers of public resources and thieves have been sentenced and excited. Kikikikiki.

  4. Zambia as a Christian nation must maintain the death penalty because Christianity supports it. Even the 2nd largest religion in Zambia Islam supports the death penalty. So who are the advocates of its abolition speaking for? Not Zambians but their sponsors. Certain heinous crimes deserve to be punished by death without compromise

  5. Death Penalty must be maintained.
    A person that wantonly kills and takes the life of another person, an irreversible act, must also be terminated.
    Chaps like that useless piece of crap thats remanded in Mukobeko in Kabwe, but somehow continued to murder women visiting or walking around the prison area, burying them in nearby shrubs.
    The chap MUST BE put to the Gallows immediately. Its not a matter of reformation. Can the lives he took be brought back as part of reformation.
    The President is sitting with the Warrant of execution on his desk. He should do his job and sign it ! The HRC can cry a river.

  6. Yawn….chipante pante Government…they’re all calling on stakeholders….kikikikikiki stakeholders this Stakeholders that….UPND is a bunch of failures…no wonder HH took ages to come up with these morons….the President himself has no idea what he is doing….I think HH is now having sleepless nights when he thinks about the Promises he made…meanwhile load shedding is back….fuel still very expensive…free education nada….health care nada…jobs for the youths nada

  7. Compatriots, the death penalty is NOT a constitutional matter. The constitution is conflicted and it contradicts itself when it says that everyone has the right to life but allows the execution of people by the state. The death penalty is in the penal code. The question I would like to ask the minister of Justice is, Who are the stakeholders? Is it those who have been convicted and are awaiting to hang until dead, or is it the families of the victims or is it NGOs, or the church? If you ask me, minister, it should be abolished, because it serves no purpose. If Lungu had his way, HH would have been awaiting to be hanged for treason.

  8. Please ignore the frustrated UK based impostor it has nothing better to do with its time…its a shameless troll that lacks creativity and intellect, thrives when there is division in our country…it has now run out of material. It is craving for relevance and attention after fruitless masquerading as an official in the previous govt.
    One Zambia One Nation!!!

  9. Zambians are still backward in their thinking.

    Death penalty is wrong. No one has the right to take another life. Not even the state.

    Cage murders for life with hard labour.

    And avoid electing people like Lungu who pardon murderers and rapists.
