Submissions received for the Constitution reform process are unsolicited-Justice Minister

General News Submissions received for the Constitution reform process are unsolicited-Justice Minister

Justice Minister Mulambo Haimbe has clarified that submissions made by some stakeholders regarding the Constitution reform process are unsolicited.
And Mr. Haimbe has assured that the constitutional reform process will be consensus, people and stakeholders driven.

He said the commencement of the process which he announced when he appeared on the Hot Seat Programme on Hot FM is an internal process to ensure that his Ministry gets approval from the cabinet on the road map that will be taken and has assured that Zambians will play their part in accordance with what is expected.

He said to stating that the government has commenced the constitutional reform process without the engagement of stakeholders is a misconception that should be ignored.
On Thursday this week, Mr. Haimbe disclosed that the government had started the Constitutional reform process and that some stakeholders had already made submissions.

Meanwhile, Leader of the opposition in Parliament Brian Mundubile has challenged Justice Minister Mulambo Haimbe to give a clear position on when the government will commence the process of reviewing the Public Order Act.

Mr. Mundubile said that it will be unfortunate and regrettable for government to commence the review process without giving a clear position and involvement of stakeholders.

The Mporokoso PF Lawmaker said that reviewing the Act has been one of UPND songs from opposition days and has questioned the silence being exhibited on the matter.

Mr. Haimbe last week disclosed that his Ministry is currently reviewing some laws for possible amendment and repeals among them the Penal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code, Children’s Code Bill and the Public Order Act.

  1. The Mporokoso PF Lawmaker said that reviewing the Act has been one of UPND songs from opposition days and has questioned the silence being exhibited on the matter. WHEN YOU PUT A WORM ON A FISHING HOOK IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU WANT TO FEED THE FISH… IT’S A TRICK TO CATCH IT.

  3. With these kinds of politics driven by politicians to try to stay in power instead of letting corporations influence the government, GRZ will be caught flat-footed.

  4. You are a silly naive motherfvucker. You won’t get the needed majority in parliament for your dictatorial constitutional changes. When we tried to bring about the same changes in bill 10 you voted against them, so we will do the same. Suck ya mother

  5. #2 Step Outside… this is not about Mundubile, it’s about what is good for the Zambians. If Mundubile made a mistake it doesn’t give license to Haimbe to make the same mistake. I don’t know whether you are Upnd or not, but remember when Upnd leaves office you will want to change the same thing that you are supporting. It’s better to make prisons habitable while you have a chance because you may end up there one day.

  6. I am not sure why Zambians complicate stuff. In Bill #10 there were already pertinent matters that required implementation but were clouded with nonsense. Why not unbundle those and run them through parliament as individual amendments? Why do we want to make a bouquet of often controversial things and then start struggling to pass them? Uukani mwawantu — this is the 21st Century.

  7. #6 This is true….we voted against the Bill of Rights, we protested against Bill 10. Even MPs can’t do their job by debating issues we level heads

  8. i am still waiting to see kaizer zulu run naked in cairo road. he had pledged to us that if hh won the elections, he would run naked on cairo road.

  9. @ Kalok, thats right! “…….. clouded with nonsense.” I love it and this tendency of attaching nonsense to pertinent matters is what needs to be addressed if the constitution review has to avoid ever undergoing reviews with every new government elected into office! The polarization that has engulfed the national leadership, political parties and among the citizenry is akin what failed the Tower of Babel from being built. The Zambian constitution which could initially have been crafted borrowing clauses from colonial rule and has through the years tried to find home grown footing is marred in self interests especially the party in government! If it were possible a better reviewed constitution would come from the street wise common person as they in their eyes view governance.
