Humiliated Lubinda still in the dark over dismissal


Dismissed former Foreign Affairs Minister and Kabwata MP Given Lubinda has not yet received official communication on his dismissal from president Michael Sata.

Sources close to Mr. Lubinda said the former minister is still in the dark because what has been communicated to him so far is verbal communication from Speaker of National Assembly Patrick Matibini and media reports.

Yesterday, Speaker of National Assembly Matibini, in the middle of parliamentary session requested the former minister to take up the back seat because he (Matibini) had received communication that there have been changes in government.

Matibini in his ruling to a point of order raised by Zambezi West UPND MP Charles Kakoma on why Mr. Lubinda had moved to the back-bench reserved for ordinary MPs said his office had received communication and hoped that the public relations unit of State House will eventually officially fire Mr. Lubinda.
