National Revolution Party (NRP) president Cosmo Mumba has demanded that government stops former President Rupiah Banda from traveling to the United States before he answers to corruption allegations leveled against him.

Dr. Mumba has told Qfm that Mr. Banda should prove his innocence to the investigative wings.

He has also appealed to the security wings to expedite investigations into the alleged corrupt activities involving the former President.

And Dr. Mumba has lifted the suspension of former party secretary general Kelly Walubita and further appointed him as his special assistant for press and public relations.

He says the decision has been arrived at following the meeting of the party’s national executive committee in Lusaka yesterday convened to discuss the fate of Mr. Walubita.

  1. …competing with Ukwa for the wooden spoon. is he from ituri forest? or jungles of south sudan?. Sounds stupid to say the least. some of these bemba chaps are a disgrace just like their boss

  2. Mumba i enjoy your comedy…u even have an Assistant for Press and Public Relations now? Good boy but you shud have poched Chellah..lol

  3. Does travelling stop investigative wings from investigating RB. Moreover he has been around since September why hasn’t he been charged if he has committed any wrongs. Like one diplomat said, people are just saying RB was involved in corrupt activities yet no specific charges have been brought up.

  4. The International Community has recognised RB as a true democrat following the way he handed over power to PF. Ba Mumba you do not have any evidence of those corruption charges you are talking about otherwise if RB was a time waster he could even contemplate of suing you for defamation of character. Friendly advise concentrate on selling your manifesto to the voters and leave RB, the career DIPLOMAT alone.

  5. But I thought this chap was an ardent UCZ Christian. He has mentality of frank bwalya and very shameless indeed.

  6. RB has shown some of these zombies what democracy is all about. I wonder if some of these politician would ever give up power if it was up to them. Leave the man alone! ni ma Jealousy ayo.

  7. Another disgruntled Bemba fool at it . Is he talking about Kelly Walubita who was once in kk cabinet ? These parties without members aka Cosmo Mumba and siulapwa are are disgrace to the Bemba superiority in Zambia

  8. cheap politiking. grow up both in age and mind before you decide to go public office. you are fond of making empty statements. noise maker!

  9. LEAVE RB ALONE, PULL HIM DOWN – PHD SYNDROME, IF INDEED HE STOLE, WE WILL SEE TO THAT WHEN HE COMES BACK IN 2 MONTHS, IN THE MEAN TIME, FIND SOMETHING TO DO BA MUMBA, INCLUDING SELLING SALAULA, THE STREETS ARE FREE TO VENDING NOW!

  10. Cocroach Mumba! Why shouldn’t RB travel? Do you understand what the saying ‘innocent until proven guilty’ means in Zambia and elsewhere in the civilised world? Shut your beak or better still go to hell!

  11. Iwe ka Mumba, shut up!!!!!! Do you want UKWA to give you a job?  Leave RB alone, he is enjoying the benefits of leaving power democratically. 

  12. @Kankungwa-Mind your Language ka. I forgot about that comedy. Here in Zed iliko bad. I am really taken aback about our attitude. The perception we give the world is like Zambia is the most corrupt nation. When you make it in Zed you must be corrupt (or you are labelled a Satanist) and you have to declare how you got your assets. Why can’t we then come up with laws that will give you a limit as how much wealth you can acquire lawfully and make a declaration thereafter of how you acquired the extra. Maybe we can leave some genuine people alone (by intruding into their privacy, if it will make Zambians happy).
    As for Banda, has anyone ever wondered why the Mpundu Flats are almost done if at all her got them illegally? Cosmic Mumba maybe you can ask the govt why its dragging its feet.

  13. Contd, you are a leader who has time for rumor-mongers honestly. Why can’t you go and give the ZP, ACC and DEC the evidence that you have against Banda? Or is a case of there is a strong suspicion that Banda stole or acquired wealth corruptly so stop him from going to USA? Do you people hear yourselves when issuing such statements? 
    Tell us something tangible!!!

  14. My big brother Kelly, don’t let’s down,how can you be a spokesperson to such an ***** who is not mentally balanced. Quit.

  15. #10 RB cannot sell Zambia now if he did not sell it when he was in power.The man was always travelling and that was when he should have sold Zambia.He has nothing to offer the students of Boston University.He is not a democrat and he will only embarass himself when he gets to Boston University.Akayatusebanya!!

    • Go and do your homework and see how much investment he brought into Zambia. He was invited to lecture at Boston. It is not your money he will be living on. Already since he left power the country is going to the dogs and the growth that he engineered during his tenure as president is being threatened by the policies of your ignorant Ukwa. 

  16. even if i dont suport mumba some people here are so dull, surely rb to market the country in 3months when he failed to do that in 3 years.just say that he is going to bring another set of twins since he will have all the freedom to relax cause they will be no invetigations wings to disturb him.

  17. has zambian run out of news makers? to have a headless chicken like mumba cosmos make statement is amazing. mumba cosmos is a failure in life and still been kept.come on zambia you need to be serious otherwise the nation will never develop.

  18. I strongly advise all Lusaka Times bloggers to appoint Secretay General’s like this chap Cosmos Mumba has done to himself.

  19. #28, Boston University doesn’t think so. If you ask for my opinion, I would prefer to hide Ukwa from public exposure instead.

  20. Atleast the day Zambia’s political history will be written,Mumba will be there… @Membe # 35 & all of insulting bembas,mwanya! u will never rule Zambia! bajata ng’ombe basa!

  21. Viva bemba,abash tonga! Viva kolwestan,abash bajata ngo’mbe basa! Nabanjeleleko mukwai… Cosmo mwaiche uli wafwaka.

  22. If Cosmo Mumba represents the future of political leadership in Zambia, I pity my children. Where in the world does one ‘PROVE HIS INNOCENCE’ against ‘ALLEGATIONS?’ The burden of proof is on the accuser to prove the allegations. So Cosmo, you TWIT, bring your evidence to the relevant authorities of just shut up! Katakati!

  23. @The Saint- Ati you can go produce evidence of your innocence in the Post Newspaper. Then you shall be cleared because even if the intelligence and security agencies clear you people will cry foul/corruption itself. Ni pa Zed chabe zoona. Hahahahaha.

  24. Bloggers, the one appointed is Keli Walubita jnr and not the senior one who was a cabinet minister, high commissioner and former police officer. Keli Walubita senior would not be so desperate. He is a dignified man, who is highly respected.

  25. @Zedi Yandi, its not just about being in Zambia’s history books. Even pipo like Alice Lenshina, Kapenda, Mushala, Ringo Phiri, are in the history books of Zambia. It should be for what reason!!!!

    True, Cosmo’s name will be mentioned, but for what reason, POLITICAL COMEDY!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. pull him down syndrome. Some bloggers seem to know what RB stole but are not mentioning it. please mention one . the police have never charged RB with any crime, so what charges are people talkiing about.

  27. @ 1 RB what do you about the terrain of South Sudan, who told you there are jungles in South Sudan?

  28. RUPIAH BANDA WAS NOT MMD IN THE FIRST PLACE, HE WAS UNIP. NOW HE HAS DESTROYED MMD AND WALKED AWAY. HOW STU.PID THE REAL MMD MEMBERS AND ORIGINATORS WHO SACRIFICED AND COULD HAVE BEEN PUNISHED SEVERELY BY KAUNDA THEN. WHY DID THEY LET RB COME IN AND DESTROY YOU JUST LIKE THAT THEN WALK AWAY JUST LIKE THAT TO THE US THEN EVEN LEAVE THEM BROKE?

  29. So RB even if wanting does not have to be investigated because he has money. Zambians shock me, our national capital was embezzled. Leave Sata alone; though make Chama eastern province again. Invest in agriculture and science.

  30. @Mwanawakwitu, is RB the one conducting investigations or is it the law enforcement agencies? If it RB then I think he should not have gone to the States but if it is the LEAs then he (RB) is free to go where ever, because once they find anything incriminating then they call upon him to avail himself to either the ZP, ACC or DEC so that they arrest and charge him. They will then present him to the courts and that will be it. But this thing of people saying that he (RB) should not leave Zambia until the LEAs investigate a case which may be non-existent in facts but in illusion is extremely absurd. Look at what has happend to Dr. S. Miti, just because he was mentioned by someone somewhere, not even in court his life has come to end. This is not justice-a person is innocent til proved guilty
