Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili storms Muvi Television studios

Share

PF Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili (L)
The Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) has condemned in the strongest terms possible the attacks on media personnel in the country.

FODEP information officer MacDonald Chipenzi described the acts of violence against the media as unfair especially that journalists were working under stressful conditions in their endeavour to effectively inform the nation on the social, cultural, political and economic developments in the country.

Mr. Chipenzi was commenting on the incident where suspected opposition Patriotic Front (PF) cadres who were allegedly accompanied by Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili, violently stormed Muvi Television studios in the early hours of today to disturb a live in programme.

The cadres stormed the Muvi TV studios and harassed two ex-UNZA students who were featuring on a live current affairs programme.

Mr. Chipenzi urged the members of the public to always seek dialogue whenever they felt aggrieved, adding that there was no need for some people to impose their views on others.

He said it was health for people in the country to have different opinions and were therefore entitled to different views and opinions.

He said if the PF cadres were aggrieved with sentiments from the two ex-UNZA students on the Speaker of the National Assembly, they would have sought a platform to counter whatever the two former students had said about their party.

Mr. Chipenzi said violence against the media was denting the image of the country and of political parties to the outside world.

He has since called on law enforcing agencies to ensure the law takes its course against those found wanting in this case.

He further advised political party cadres especially the youth to channel their energies toward fighting for the economic development of the country instead of getting involved in physical confrontations.

This latest violence against media practitioners comes barely three weeks after a similar incident occurred in Mazabuka where suspected PF-UPND pact cadres stormed and disrupted a live programme on Mazabuka Community Radio.

  1. This is what happens when you have I.G of the likes of Kabonde. According to Kabonde this is not violence since Chimba did not hurt any one. Next time people will storm state house and threaten gang- Ra.ping Thandiwe and it will not be violance according to I.G Kabonde. What a country !!!!

  2. The president must break his silence and address the worsening violence now prevailing in the country and must also specifically comment on Kabonde’s statement that threatening violence is not a crime. If this threat on the rule of law is not checked it won’t be long before we become something like Somalia. The problem must be nipped in the bud before it gets out of hand.

  3. I am beginning to think MMD, PF and UPND have the same barbaric mindsets. Oh! I just remembered they have people that are former Unip and MMD making up leadership. All the ruffians from all parties need to come to book yesterday. No prejudice should be shown, the police should act swiftly now.

  4. Ifi fubantu kwena kuti fyakupesha amano. Backwardness pa Zambia naichilamo. Parliament is inhabited by the worst kind of creature. Well mannered and intelligent Zambians now seem to shun it. Good luck mane.

  5. Chitapankwa your words I understand. Who raised the people in our government anyway? Accept the few wise humble ones the others seem alittle primitive, which is non African. All parties have these thugs that’s the scary part.

Your idea is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this.
