Amos Chanda said : “They made allegations against His Excellency, the President; against the Secretary General of the ruling party; against the Minister of Home of Affairs; against myself and against Mr Kaizar Zulu, the Political Advisor. The basis of their allegations were simply that a militia unit exits, commanded and funded by the President and ourselves. The first response is that we strongly reject those allegations as totally false…bearing [no] truth whatsoever…it appears that there is no stop, there is no limit to how far the opposition leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema will go in his pursuit of the Presidency that he would damage and destroy the country in order to rule it,” “To consciously manufacture lies and give them to his shadow Mr Milupi and broadcast them in the manner they did, knowing too well they were false, [is] extremely shameful. But we know why they are doing that; in the past, it has become very fashionable for the opposition to lie in the international media space” External link

Amos Chanda said : “The opposition cannot be entertained at the ICC. It is quite clear that they have not familiarised themselves with…statute that governs the ICC. The jurisdiction of that court correctly is criminal, yes. But only State parties can be heard at the ICC. So, those dangerously desperate men who paraded themselves at the Intercontinental Hotel, none of them can be entertained at the ICC,” “Having said that, their behaviour is like that of a foolish heads boy who shouts ‘wolf, wolf, wolf, wolf’, one time, they go, people come, they don’t find the wolf, they don’t find the lion. Second time…the third time…when this foolish heads boy shouts ‘wolf, wolf’ and the lion had come and no one from the village responded. We are asking the ICC ourselves to come; we are asking the international human rights bodies such as Amnesty International; the Human Rights Commission (HRC) because the President told me that through the HRC, this information can officially go to Amnesty…that they can come to examine the allegations made. But because these foolish opposition leaders do not have the jurisdiction to be heard before the ICC, we are going to do it for them by asking the ICC to come and examine these allegations. To this effect, Minister Lubinda is under instruction from the President to formally communicate to the ICC. The reason we are putting this upfront and through the international media is to clearly demonstrate that when dangerously desperate opposition leaders begin even to connive with rogue elements within the police, the international human rights regime must be able to stand up” External link

Amos Chanda said : “There behaviour is like that of foolish herder who shouts wolf, wolf and when the people came did not find any wolf. We have decided to invite the ICC, Amnesty International and the Human Rights Commission ourselves to demonstrate that when the desperate opposition starts to collaborate with log elements in the Police, they must be able to stand up” External link

Amos Chanda said : “They made allegations against His Excellency, the President; against the Secretary General of the ruling party; against the Minister of Home of Affairs; against myself and against Mr Kaizar Zulu, the Political Advisor. The basis of their allegations were simply that a militia unit exits, commanded and funded by the President and ourselves. The first response is that we strongly reject those allegations as totally false…bearing [no] truth whatsoever…it appears that there is no stop, there is no limit to how far the opposition leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema will go in his pursuit of the Presidency that he would damage and destroy the country in order to rule it,” “To consciously manufacture lies and give them to his shadow Mr Milupi and broadcast them in the manner they did, knowing too well they were false, [is] extremely shameful. But we know why they are doing that; in the past, it has become very fashionable for the opposition to lie in the international media space” External link

Amos Chanda said : “The opposition cannot be entertained at the ICC. It is quite clear that they have not familiarised themselves with…statute that governs the ICC. The jurisdiction of that court correctly is criminal, yes. But only State parties can be heard at the ICC. So, those dangerously desperate men who paraded themselves at the Intercontinental Hotel, none of them can be entertained at the ICC,” “Having said that, their behaviour is like that of a foolish heads boy who shouts ‘wolf, wolf, wolf, wolf’, one time, they go, people come, they don’t find the wolf, they don’t find the lion. Second time…the third time…when this foolish heads boy shouts ‘wolf, wolf’ and the lion had come and no one from the village responded. We are asking the ICC ourselves to come; we are asking the international human rights bodies such as Amnesty International; the Human Rights Commission (HRC) because the President told me that through the HRC, this information can officially go to Amnesty…that they can come to examine the allegations made. But because these foolish opposition leaders do not have the jurisdiction to be heard before the ICC, we are going to do it for them by asking the ICC to come and examine these allegations. To this effect, Minister Lubinda is under instruction from the President to formally communicate to the ICC. The reason we are putting this upfront and through the international media is to clearly demonstrate that when dangerously desperate opposition leaders begin even to connive with rogue elements within the police, the international human rights regime must be able to stand up” External link
