FILE: President Rupiah Banda`s son Henry with his wife

Kenyan High Commissioner to Zambia Kipiego Cheluget has declined to comment on media reports suggesting that fugitive Henry Banda, son to former republican President Rupiah Banda is being harboured at the Kenyan State House in Nairobi.

Dr. Cheluget, who was approached by a Qfm staffer to get clarification on the matter, could neither confirm nor deny the media reports but opted to remain silent.

Meanwhile, Foreign affairs Minister Given Lubinda says he will issue a comprehensive statement once he studies the reports.

A daily newspaper quoted undisclosed sources yesterday as having revealed that Henry Banda is seeking refuge in Kenya after the Red light alert was sounded by former Inspector General of Police Dr. Martin Malama.

Henry is wanted by investigation wings for his alleged role in the fraudulent sale of Zamtel to LAP Green which has since been repossessed by government.

Law pa Zed is a joke sometimes ,Xavier Chungu, faustin Kabwe , Stella , katele are all walking and we expect them to lock up Banda boy ? Let us concentrate on real issues worth our time than this political nonsense !!!!!!!!!

  2. Kenya is ok. Fight against corruption has been abandoned by Chi Sata. Thats why he removed Kambwili from labour (lose of urban support) and Dr Malama IG. He has tested chinese money. He will know this when there is a by-election in urban centers.

  3. Rupia did not listen to Dont kubeba for the first time at state house for him to dance to it for the first time there. i am sure he was tod something very special like he will never be prosecuted hence he could not hide his joy but to dance. this fight against corruption is Mmembe driven and i am sure his was hurt to see Sata and Rupia dancing together after a closed door meeting.
    Shame on mmembe couse his days are numberd

  6. Has an official warrant of arrest been issued by the Zambian authorities or do they just want to question him? If a warrant has been issued, what is the charge? Can someone please shed light on this matter.

  7. Why is it career criminals in Zambia are Bemba as the blogger above has mentioned? Including the women. In EASTERN province all the other groups the Senga, Chewa, Thubuka, Nsenga are good but the NGONIs of Chipata are equally thievish like their northern provine cousins? It buffles me.

  10. How come we have not heard anything new on Dora herself? Nor on Rupiah and whoever else was involved? This case can’t progress unless Henry is fished out of Kenya? Utter nonsense. First it was diplomatic problems with Malawi, now you want to create tension with Kenya. You don’t ever have proof, its just rumours lyonse.

  12. There are very few leaders who can fight corruption in Zambia genuinely. Sata is the least among politicians we can even try to depend upon to fight corruption. Sata enjoyed corruption during FJT’s rule. He was even arrested by Mwanawasa for stealing (keeping for himself) a government vehicle after 2001. He had promised to forgive Chiluba in 2006. Most of the convicted politicians for corruption are his tribesmate and friends. How do you expect him to fight corruption? Even for Mwanawasa, yes he introduced some fear for corruption but it was mostly for political mileage.

  18. Its a shame that so many bloggers are still dancing to homo mmembes vindictive tune. Nothing pleases this very small man more that public crucifixions and the smell of blood due to his very hard childhood/upbringing where I believe he was starved of love or even human contact. He actually salivates at the thought of bringing down or humiliating the perceived opponents or blocks to his business or power brokering ambitions. He is nothing more than a celebrated opportunistic sadistic primate whose mission is to use his paper for his evil plans. He obviously did not sleep at night for the past week when he realised that MCS is not the vindictive ally to his evil plan that he thought he was. RB dancing to donchi was the final nail and he went into action to divert the nation back to his agenda

  19. Anyhow what homo and his little disciples must realise is that there is more to governing a nation and keeping a nation on track than shadow boxing and going after individuals with no hard evidence. Until there are real charges please stop wasting our time and put money in our pockets. MCS thankfully is shrewd enough to have realised this and is hard at work refocussing his agenda instead of being misled into taking the nation on an epic wild goose chase of absolute BS from fred and mutembos toilet. He has done a long awaited donchi on them as he knows what is important. His instinct has always worked in the past and will serve him now hence his MAN OF ACTION status which I thought was lost. Henry is a non issue and MCS knows this. period.

  20. Anyhow what homo and his little disciples must realise is that there is more to governing a nation and keeping it on track than shadow boxing and persecuting individuals with no hard evidence. Until there are real charges, evidence & legal due process, its SILLY!. MCS thankfully is shrewd enough to have realised this and is refocussing his energy, instead of being trapped into taking the nation on an epic wild goose chase of absolute BS from fred and mutembos toilet. He has done the long awaited ‘donchi’ on them as he realises what is important. His instinct has always been his strength in the past and is apparent now, hence his MAN OF ACTION tag which I started believing was lost. Henry is a non issue and MCS knows this, period. So when Henry does show up, answers questions THEN WHAT??
