Government must explain why Sweden and Finland were allowed to fly Lesbian, Gay Flag-Nevers Mumba

General News Government must explain why Sweden and Finland were allowed to fly ...

Radio Phoenix reports that Former diplomat Nevers Mumba is urging the government through the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation to guide the nation on the laws regarding adherence to the Vienna Convention.

On Tuesday, May 17th 2022, the Swedish and Finnish embassies in Zambia flew the rainbow flag along with their own national flags on their premises which stands for the support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer And Intersex -LGBTQI- rights.

This act has received criticism from some stakeholders who have described it as a breach of the 1961 Vienna convention, and a lack due regard to the laws of Zambia and cultural sensitivity to its people.

Under article 20 of the Vienna convention, the mission is only allowed to fly the flag and emblem of their country on their premises and on the vehicle.

However, under the 1961 Vienna Convention Guiding Diplomatic Relations, diplomats are mandated to respect the law of the receiving state and it is a serious breach of the convention to break the law of the host country.

Commenting on this matter, Dr. Mumba says it is important that the ministry of foreign affairs makes it clear to Zambians why the two countries flew the rainbow flags and which laws and convention guided their actions in order to avoid wrong perceptions.

Zambia has not recognized LGBTQI rights and the practice of homosexuality remains a criminal offence in the country.

Efforts to get Foreign Affairs Minister Stanley Kakubo on the matter proved futile as his mobile phone was switched off.

  1. Nevers shut your mouth, you are a sellout and disappointment. After supporting hh and licking his boots today you have woken up? Fuseke! We warned you about this gayness in upnd for decades. You didn’t listen. Wait until your children turn gay

  3. Dr Never! scratch that…Mr Mumba. the put the flag at there premises which is essentially there country as per laws of Embassies is concerned. E.g our embassies abroad are all considered as zambia

  4. WE ARE FOLLOWING THIS MATTER CLOSSELY AS ZAMBIANS.
    FOR THIS MATTER IS A NONE NEGOTIABLE IN ZAMBIA. AND ALSO IS THE BEGINING OF THE RISE AND FALL OF THE EMPIRE WHICH ATTEMPTS SUCH ATROCITIES.
    NO WONDER WINTER KAMIMBYA CHANGED THE NAME OF HIS POLITICAL PATE.

    WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT I HAVE LAUNCHED A RED CARD CAMPAIGN AGAINST THOSE FLYING SUCH FLAGS IN A HOLY LAND ZAMBIA.

  5. And that is coming from a former Ambassador?!? Lesson 1: Each embassy and its grounds is a sovereign territory – which means that it is an extension of its nation state and immune to local laws. Even politicians from the host country cannot enter embassy premises without an invite first!
    Mwanvela?

  6. Nevers Mumba was NOT voted in by the Zambian voters last year – but he still has a BIG mouth. Go back to your lousy church, shut the door and stay QUIET!

  8. People may not to like what @Awe Sure has just pointed out but therein lies the simple truth. If they went to a public place somewhere and did that we would be summoning their ambassador. So as it stands … the debate over this matter is moot.

  9. Awe Sure – Refer to the 1961 Vienna Convention Guiding Diplomatic Relations rather than spewing your misguided opinion.

  10. Tikki is clearly gay. Tikki is that how you got your visa there by claiming you were at risk here in zambia and needed to be reunited with your gay blesser there who is hammering your backsides. I am sure your backsides looks like lasagna

  13. @Advisor, if you have data/bundles, please read Article 22 of the same. I think the statement you made refers to you rather than me . Oh, I forget, problem with bundles/data…..Here it is in full:
    1.The premises of the mission shall be inviolable. The agents of the receiving State may not enter
    them, except with the consent of the head of the mission.
    2.The receiving State is under a special duty to take all appropriate steps to protect the premises
    of the mission against any intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of the
    mission or impairment of its dignity.
    3.The premises of the mission, their furnishings and other property thereon and the means of
    transport of the mission shall be immune from search, requisition, attachment or execution.

  14. One discreet condition IMF have put forth is that of LGBTQ. If we accept, we have a deal.

    When the minister said they have almost concluded the deal, they meant to say they have accepted. Thats when these Europeans felt secure enough to raise that satanic flag over Mother Zambia.

    The ‘Honourables’ will remain silent over this. Honourable in name… No honour before God!

  15. NO HONOUR BEFORE GOD ??
    WHY DIDNT THE PERSON WHO TOOK DISROBED YOUNG CHILDREN INTO HIS ROOM FOR INITCIATION
    IN THE GARGEN OF GEHSEMENE TAKE HEED ??

  16. This was one of the conditions for the two countries’ aid to UPND when in opposition. HH signed it and therefore can’t do a back flip.

  17. Can Zambia fly the Russian flag alongside the swastika in its embassies in the said countries? Caucasians and their superiority complexes

  18. I don’t think government will comment on this issue.They will wait for it to die slowly.
    Where is the information minister?
    She will respond after three weeks.
