Sylvia Masebo

Chongwe Member of Parliament, Silvia Masebo has told the Lusaka magistrate court that Lusaka Province MMD chairman, William Banda organized MMD cadres to go to Chongwe and beat up PF cadres. This is in a matter in which Mr. Banda and four others are facing charges of assault on some Chongwe residents.

Ms Masebo said on 3rd September 2011, she received a call from one of the PF Members in Chongwe, informing her that MMD cadres were beating people in the area. She said when she got to Chongwe she found some PF members who were attacked, by the road side on great east road.

Ms. Masebo says later on she saw Mr. Banda come near her and calling for reinforcement and a few minutes later some MMD cadres were brought in buses and vans.

She says Mr. Banda ordered the cadres to beat and clear all PF cadres because former President Rupiah Banda was to pass there as he was scheduled to have a rally in Chongwe. An emotionally charged Ms Masebo told the court that the MMD youths were armed with Pangas and sticks and were throwing stones at PF supporters.

Ms Masebo positively identified Mr. Banda and another accused person in court, as some of the people who were in the fore front in the Chongwe violence. And Lusaka resident magistrate, Rogers Kaoma warned Ms Masebo against using unpleasant language in court.

This was when responding to a question from defense lawyer Hopday Kabwe, who asked her on whether or not she wanted to outweigh former President Rupiah Banda’s campaign strategy. Ms Masebo had earlier responded that it was nonsense and ridiculous for someone to think that she wanted to outweigh Rupiah Banda.

Trial in the matter continues

  3. Take into account that Masebo has cheated, and had no respect for the legal wives of Kabimba and Malipenga. Masebo manipulated both Kabimba and Malipenga by socialising with the two men thru application of differential Calculus on times as to when to flirt with anyone of them. Mrs. Kabimba and Mrs. Malipenga are currently living in serious psychological pains – and it is possible several more families are similarly afflicted. This woman betrayed Mwanawasa by leaking vital Govt information to her boy-friends in PF. May the Soul of Mwanawasa Rest in Peace. Who on Earth would trust Masebo’s word as she fermented lies against a political opponent such as William Banda in Chongwe. Her life style and moral reasons to forge an alliance with the PF is chilling to comprehend.

  4. Masebo flourishes on uneducated chongwe people. Masebo should be probed for making mwakalombe resign from MMD. She gave out alot of cash. A genuine bye-election is one caused by death or chronic illness of an MP.

  5. No, she is not married. She was married to Mr Masebo, a local businessman, who ditched her because of her activities. He is now married to a female Lieutenant Colonel from Zambia Army. However, Sylvia Masebo has continued to use her former husband’s name. According to her, she is more well known by the name MASEBO.

  7. @ 7 what is marriage. the main thing is she is educated. That Patriarchal mentality is what has been championing violence against women. Women are made to believe indentity through a man is what matters in life, pathetic to hell with the so called bana chimbusa. they are slays themselves who need an education. Masebo Keep shining you don’t need a man in your house. Brilliant woman
