Sata has told Kabimba to resign, Chellah tells Turkish media

Members of the tribunal with Chibesakunda

President Michael Sata has advised Wynter Kabimba to resign instead of waiting to be fired or suspended.

Meanwhile rejected acting chief justice Lombe Chibesakunda has sworn in the tribunal that will investigate Kabimba.

Sata’ spokesperson George Chella has told Anadolu Agency the official news agency of Turkey that “the president has advised Mr. Kabimba to consider stepping down on his own accord and not to wait for him to either be suspended or dismiss him.’

But Kabimba told the same Turkish news agency that he has not yet received a letter from President Michael Sata advising him to step down to pave the way for a smooth investigation against him.

“I am yet to receive the letter from the president,” “As soon as I get it, possibly today, tomorrow or any other day in the coming week, I will make a decision,” Kabimba said.

“Not until then, I will remain in the office as Justice Minister,” he insisted.

“The legal opinion from the Solicitor General is but a catalyst to guide the court where some corrupt elements were found during the trial. As a party, we shall not spare any seat that was won fraudulently,” he told AA.

Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda has on Monday swore in the tribunal tasked with investigating Kabimba’s conduct after the Supreme Court established that the minister had used legal advice from the Solicitor-General’s Office to prop up the PF nullification cases.

Former Solwezi Central Member of Parliament Lucky Mulusa and Lusaka businessman Brebner Changala petitioned Mrs Justice Chibesakunda to establish a tribunal to investigate Mr Kabimba.
Mr Mulusa and Mr Changala want the tribunal to state whether Mr Kabimba abused his office by using Government information rendered by Solicitor-General Musa Mwenye to back up Patriotic Front cases attempting to block parliamentarians whose seats have been nullified by the Supreme Court.

    As a toilet is used by one individual per time so are these higher officers thus whenever time is ripe .it is ideal to rest your case and pave way for others with intergrit as opposed to humiliation whether in harmony or disarray .So brother if it’s true just go .We shall always remember you for the courage .Wishing you well .

    Kabimba will NEVER be President of this country. Let him just continue his numerous affairs. It takes a man to resign and Kabimba is simply an arrogant wimp.

  7. Patriotic Zambian  January 15, 2014 at 14:54

    He has to resign on moral grounds to pave way for proper “investigations” into the allegations, hoping no1 else interferes with them.

    Civil Servant spilling beans to the public is a dissimisal offence plus prosecution. Challah has acted in such a manner to divulge secrets of his bosses private talk to his Minister and should therefore, be fired as well. For all terms and purpose this is not an announcement in the usual “The President has blah blah blah…” In a statement read by his spokesperson. Such statements are approved by the President whereas this one does not fall in the official capacity. Then again the circus of current Government this will be brushed aside. As for Kabimba he deserves whatever comes his way

    Problem with kabimba is that he is too arrogant and full of himself. In addition he hs over estimated the importance of his position in this country and he also hs an illusion he is the brightest lawyer that this nation hs ever had ad so any time he opens his mouth he ll let you know that he is a lawyer.Now interestingly here is kabimba SC with his brightest legal mind found wanting on legal matters! How embarrassing especially for one as big mouthed as one Winter Kabimba;since he has no constituency he must be feeling the winter.

    Y force Wynter to resign? Is it becoz he is not of them?

    Why do you want to force KABIMBA to behave like you would like him to behave. If your decision is for him to resign, is it possible that your warped thinking is the reason why you are where you are and he is where he is. Let the law take its course. Kabimba will resign when he receives communication from the President, not from a foreign news media.

  15. Kopalaswagg  January 14, 2014 at 12:16

    Do you have to wait for the President to write to you for you to resign? Its common sense for you to do that.. The calibre of lawyers we have pa Zed.. Resign that’s what you are suppose to do.

    All polluted human beings are being vamboozed from the system untill 2016 when the gvt will change.

    Kabimba fears to join GBM because resigning an appointment by His Excellence their great is blaspheme.

  18. chumbu  January 14, 2014 at 09:12

    So kabimba can’t resign on his own ?what a cowered this failure is.

  19. lasi sakala  January 14, 2014 at 09:00

    I am flabbergasted with Mr Kawimbe.He is aware of what is required of him as someone to be subjected under investigations.As an upright person and respected lawyer, he is prudently supposed to step down.My expectation is for him to step down.I am taken aback to hear him say that he is waiting for advise from the president.To me this means that he does not want to pave way for smooth investigations.He is looking forward to the president for protection.He may be lectured that it is a requirement that he steps down for the sake of the freedom of investigators.

    The curse of Africa – resigning is taboo! People have to be forced or be fired. No moral fibre on this continent…no conscience, no integrity, no values, no humility,no shame… just stubbornness, impunity, arrogance, selfishness, greed, opportunism, corruption and poverty! Mother Africa poor you! God Save Africa now! This continent has suffered more than any other, from the time of the Berlin Partition, slave trade, colonization and neo-colonization. Why? Why? Why only Africa?

    For stepping down, GBM has proven he is twice the man Kamimbya is in every sense!

  28. NEVERMIND  January 14, 2014 at 07:28

    KABIMBA, WHAT HAS GONE WRONG WITH YOU, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOUR EDUCATION? I THOUGHT IF YOU WERE NOT INVOLVED IN THIS CASE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE TO ADVISE THE PRESIDENT ON WHAT THE ACCUSED WAS SUPPOSED TO DO. YOU DON’T NEED A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT TO STEP A SIDE ON MORAL GROUNDS AND ALLOW THE COMMISSION TO DO ITS WORK. MY FRIEND AVOID THIS APPARENT STUPID BEHAVOUR IF YOU WANT TO RULE THIS COUNTRY IN FUTURE, EVEN IF IT IS JUST IN YOUR IMAGINATION.

  29. Hot Water  January 14, 2014 at 07:12

    Winter is innocent until proved otherwise. And so, no need for him to resign, neither should he be fired. Article 18 subsection (a) and (b) states. This is my legal opinion anyway.

    • Twenu  January 14, 2014 at 07:28

      How about riggers mwelwa boot? I was guilty before trial I guess? Be objective man.he needs to pave way for investigation no one says he is guilty.it is difficult to investigate a senior official who may be the custodian of some of the documents required for the investigation.sometimes let’s use common sense and not cardersim.

  30. Suggestor  January 14, 2014 at 07:07

    Ukwa has no balls to fire kabimba, he is a coward because he knows his shady dealings have been with his favorite cronies kabimba

    Sata’ spokesperson George Chella has told
    Anadolu Agency the official news agency of
    Turkey…
    Why are we so naïve to break the ice on foreign media, and offer anything save news on our own media… Just thinking

    • Native  January 14, 2014 at 06:30

      Spot on, what interest do the turkish have in Kabimba’s stepping aside? And the appointing authority also, why is if procrastinating? Does he need his appointee’s permission to suspend him? Would that not be akin to the proverbial “tail wagging the dog”?

      • Native  January 14, 2014 at 06:32

        PS. Why is the appointing authority procrastinating?

    Hahahahahahahaha. Very interesting story. The man is stubborn, he cannot resign on his own. He has no balls. Seeking solace in the boss. Boss man could have told him to his face to resign followed by a letter.

  35. Czar  January 14, 2014 at 04:34

    Why plead with him to resign? Just fire him! Why is Sata so scared of Wynter? Is someone being blackmailed or what?

  36. Hìllary ngulube  January 14, 2014 at 04:32

    Let g go

  37. ndumeleti  January 14, 2014 at 03:18

    Sack him otherwise he will never resign the fellow is spineless

  38. shaka  January 14, 2014 at 02:32

    Yes! Kabimba ifontini lya minister of injustice must go bak to his seat as SG of pArt of Fools (pf). That’s where he belongs.

  39. 'e' the independent f(x)  January 14, 2014 at 01:56

    my speculation, once pf infights started, and basing my dedutions on the subject’s role then, was that he would be sorted out by some snare that came along his way. like achebe says, “the house i wanted to burn has caught fire own its own!”
