Patriotic Front (PF) Kasama Central Member of Parliament (MP) Geoffrey Mwamba

Patriotic Front (PF) Kasama Central aspiring candidate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba’s campaign manager, Nathan Ilunga, has been arrested in connection with the alleged destruction of campaign materials belonging to the ruling MMD.

ZANIS reports Northern Province police commanding Officer Mukuka Chewe confirming the arrest of Mr. Ilunga, who is former Kasama District Administrator, today.

Mr. Chewe said Mr. Ilunga was caught red-handed removing MMD campaign posters within the central business town in the early of Saturday morning.

“ The PF official was nabbed yesterday after MMD Kasama Central aspiring candidate Chilekwa Munkonge together with other party members lodged in a complaint to the police against Mr. Ilunga, “ he said.
Mr. Chewe said Ilunga has since been remanded in police custody and would appear in court tomorrow for breaching the electoral Conduct of Code.

The Provincial Commanding Officer has since warned that the police would deal firmly with perpetrators of electoral offences and political violence ahead of the September 20 tripartite elections.

According to the revised 2011 Electoral Code of Conduct, it is an offence for anyone to deface, remove or destroy any political campaign materials of any person or political party or publication of the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ).

Meanwhile, MMD aspiring candidate for Kasama Central Chilekwa Munkonge has strongly condemned the behavior of Mr. Ilunga of destroying campaign materials belonging to the MMD.

Mr. Munkonge said it is embarrassing and unacceptable for Mr. Ilunga, who is very familiar with the Electoral Code of Conduct to engage in criminal activities.

He has called for justice to prevail in the matter.

Mr. Munkonge revealed that Mr. Ilunga, who recently defected to the opposition PF from MMD, initially went into hiding after being spotted destroying campaign posters for the ruling party.

He however said Mer. Ilunga was later apprehended by police around 19:00 hours after re-surfacing from his hide-out.

  5. Lets not vote for Sata. He is a known comon theif. Sata was eating together with Kafupi the loot that they got from Zambians through Zamtrop accounts. Sata was also abusive and opressive to the none governmental Newspapers and Media outlets. He was hostile to those who chanpioned freedom of speach. He was even hostile to Mmembe. Sata tried to give us Kafupi for a third term. This fact must never be forgotten by voters. Sata was caught red handed trying to smuggle money into Zambia through the Oliver Tambo international Airport is SA. He was also caught again in Malawi trying to do some funny gimmicks. Don’t forget the passport Saga in London. This man is a known crook. He is beneath me. He is useless and a waste of life. Do not Vote for him.

    • You should not be worrying about my spellings at this late hour. You should be thinking about the wooping that RB & HH are going to put on your old man Sata (n). Why do you support a man like Sata anyway? Yes he cleaned toilets when he was local government. He did a bit of good at the ministry of health, but what did he do when he was minister without portfolio. It was a total flop. What about the CHawama Masacre? Is that the person you want to be your commander in chief?

You are busy pleasing Rupiah Banda imwe ati ekuwamya kanshi we are also watching who is on the people’s side and who is not. Mmd in lusaka are busy doing the same things you are busy arresting ba PF in your own eyes, but do you arrest them, rest william banda flushes you out? Its time and people’s desires in this year’s elections will be granted. God help us.

  10. When are you going to arrest William Banda and his thugs? I am sorry I did not realize that ZANUPF politics is slowly finding itself in Zambia. After, Banda is a son of Zanu PF and to expect something less is a miracle.

  14. Can someone or group help us advise RB that what he is doing through William Malabishi Banda will soon catch up with him. Why should he turn himself into a worst dictator all of a sudden??? Your own clock is ticking!!!! Come September 22nd you’ll have to tell us what made you kill, maim and rob our people. Let us be careful and ensure Sata’s life is secured because from the way these lumpens are behaving I wouldnt be supprised to hear that they have nabbed our saviour……. Let’s vote wisely baneeeeeeeeeee…………………………………………..

  15. # 6 I can assure you nothing like that will happen. There is Bemba saying`’Umuto walupwa tawitika usempuka fye’. Translated as ‘Blood is thicker than water’. GBM despite his uncooth character is very kind at heart and will not see his sibling Munkonge sick or in poverty and fold his arms. This is just politics and am sure they even joke about it now. Munkonge tells GBM ‘mudala nkakusepa’ GBM responds ‘wacepa mwaice ifwe to li nsimbi’. Am sure the elders of the family have already reconciled them saying ‘at least the constituency will be within the family’

  16. Hatching disturbances is part of the PF plots that included failed court cases and attacks on the ACC, and ECZ. GBM is a profession at executing violence. The only options left will be the fermentation of violence andpracticing of barbaric rituals by a thug (Fr. Bwalya) dispatched into the field by Bishops Banda and Mpundu on pretext that Bwalya has been granted indefinite leave, After September 20th Fr. Bwalya will return to the Catholic pulpits to preach deception. Who on Earth will believe a prayer from a blood thursty Frank Bwalya?

  18. There are strong signs of PF losing Kasama seat and many other seats in Northen/Luapula provinces. RB has made serious inroads and may get more seats than the previous elections.

  21. # 1, I admire you very much, for you are number one to expose your foolishness regarding the story at hand. What the hell are you talking about? Where does HH come in here in the story? Why can’t you read between the lines? The story is about a PF campaign manager removing MMD campaign posters! UPND and HH are outside of the issue. Why tempering the sleeping dogs?you really *************** and very————————- indeed!!!!!

  22. Most PF cadres are failures in life as a result of their own dullness. They are supporting Sata because they believe miraculously he will put more money in their pockets. Even if Sata were to win, these dunderheads will remain opponents of the government of the day. The same Sata who is now their hero will be the target of their insults. This is because Sata will ask them to work hard to develop this country. To them this will be a betrayal of their trust in him. Even Sata is a man of the people, he alone cannot make us a prosperous nation without each one of us doing our bit to develop our economy. Your support for any party is misplaced if all you think is for the President to provide for all your needs while you lazy about. Some will insult me for making this point, but I don’t care!!!

  24. # 29, you are very right. I support your reasoning. Why can”t we also talk about the Councillors at grassroot level where development starts from? It is not automatic that a voter should vote for a President, an MP and a Councillor all from the same political party at any given time under any given circumstance. Characters differ, mind you!!! I for one will divide them, distributing them evenly among three major political parties – you know them!!!!!!!!

  25. The difference between a cadre and a professional.
    Kabonde Francis has eyes and cannot see the voilence being cased by MMD reason being that he is a cadre. Dr Malama Martin ( next IG ) is a professional no wonder there is no political voilence in the copperbelt. we salute you sir for the hard work may the good Lord bless you
