Government has clarified that the K2 million allocated towards consultations on whether Zambia should leave or remain a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is from the 2017 national budget. Justice Minister Given Lubinda says the money is part of the allocation approved by Parliament in the contingency budget, which is money set aside to cover unexpected costs. Lubinda says those questioning the source of the K2 million do not understand the budgeting process. Lubinda says anyone who understands this process would have known that the K2 million could only have come from the contingency budget. Lubinda states that this is in fact the purpose of a contingency budget that monies in the national budget are reserved for expenditure on unforeseen costs to government. He adds that those arguing that the K2 million is an unplanned expenditure should also understand that it was not possible for government to plan for something it did not foresee. Lubinda says the issue on whether Zambia should pull out from the ICC or not only came up in January and therefore could not have been considered in the 2017 national budget that was planned in October.

ZNBC workers have returned to work after a two-day work stoppage over non-payment of salaries. The workers returned to work following assurances by management were concerns were being addressed. Opposition leader UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has since the described the situation at the national broadcaster as sad. “In our view, our brothers and sisters [at ZNBC] are not being fairly treated especially that they work round the clock for the select few who are now not paying them even if we know that it is Zambians like you and us who pay them through taxes. “We hope that those that have severally been abusing our brothers and sisters do pay them but this protest by ZNBC workers is just a snippet of an example on how the economy is under performing,” Hichilema stated in a routine press statement. The leading political figure says such development as the one at ZNBC was confirmation of failed leadership urging Zambians to remain strong and consider electing credible leadership. “Hunger knows no choice and affects everyone,including those who sing the loudest for injustices to continue,” he said. Hichilema has consistently cried foul over the poor coverage the public institution has accorded his political party.
