Zambian Watch sources at the Ministry of Justice have confirmed that Kabwata Member of Parliament Given Lubinda has tendered a resignation letter with immediate effect.
Mr. Lubinda was slapped and knocked by PF cadres on Friday after he went to inspect the Market in Kabwata Constituency.
According to sources, Mr. Lubinda is frustrated after Kaizer Zulu, Freedom Sikazwe and Sunday Chanda directed their cadres to beat him up.
Shockingly today Given Lubinda had taken the back bench in parliament confirming reports that he has resigned from government as minister of justice.
When asked why Lubinda is not sitting where ministers are supposed to sit in parliament, Speaker Matibini said Lubinda was today seated at the correct position.
In short, Matibini diplomatically confirmed that Lubinda has resigned.
