Thirst for intoxicating liquor has landed a Patriotic Front-PF Lusaka Councilor who has been detained by Ethiopian security officials for allegedly incurring a bill of US $ 2000 dollars, about Ten Million Kwacha, in unpaid for beer at a named hotel.

Councilor Chikutalo Nkhoma of Lusaka’s Silwiza ward in Northmead area is said to have gone to that country with other council officials where he incurred the bill to quench his thirst.

Upon checking out, other council officials left Mr. Nkhoma in the hands of the security personnel as they could not pay the accumulated bill.

And Lusaka Mayor Daniel Chisenga has expressed disappointment over the development describing the incident as embarrassing to the nation.

Mr. Chisenga further said that Mr. Nkhoma will face disciplinary action as soon as he is released by the Ethiopian officials.

  1. It happens coz some people don’t realize that those are cash bars in Hotel rooms. so i believe even the Councillor thought it was part of room service.

  2. Yangu umusebanya.Typical of most Zedians…nakwabene you want to drink like you are at Maiteneke….nomba mune kakutalala.Whatever happened to your more money in your pocket.

  3. K10 million for beer????. What a mess? How many days did he stay in Ethiopia? Was he drinking alone or with some………..????? That is tax payers he has drowned…..

  4. This is classic yaba….I dont blame him….many timse when I also think I have money invite few people to enjoy on my tab only later to realise that what others order as whisky dont know a shot can cost one’s two week of normal budget drink out hahahahaha and some ciders cost a leg if not checked too….hence we run and typical of Zambian friends will never bail you out

    • You cannot statistically or objectively infer the behaviour of one individual to the whole population of councilors in Zambia. Much as we know that “umusuku uubi, uusafya impanga yonse”.

  5. It must have been at a brothel.Typical they lure you with pretty girls who start drinking expensive champagne without you knowing . Then they are very serious on you now that you can not pay

  6. There is the standard of what people were reasoning when voting for such lumpens, allowing emotions triggered by slogan chants is costing us everyday, cry my beloved country

  7. This is classic indeed, how many people was he buying for??????? How can you be drinking and not be getting an update on your bill? He needs to tell us what actually was on that bill. Am very positive its something else. What a shame

  8. [-x
    Shame shame. My guess is that he did not pay for the other services. Mune you’re an embarrassment to this nation. Where you with that drunkard Minister I know???? You guys are really bad @sses !!!

  9. Going into “public service” for private gain and enjoyment at taxpayers expense.Surely this PF councillor must not be a man of integrity.Think of what he can do if he gets control of your tax money.

  10. USD 2,000 in unpaid beer in Ethiopia? Wow!!! That is Birr 39,000!!! Most expensive Hotel in Ethiopia charges Birr 80 per beer. You must give chap credit for drinking 480 beers. Well done!!!!

  11. Am sure he even sent some sms`s to his buddy`s back home like “kuli moba kuno wish you guys were here,You can never go wrong with Ethiopia.Beer and beautiful women.See you in zed soon.One love Chikutalo”.

  12. Record breaking, he has to go into Guinness books of records, bane nangu ulanwa spending $2000 seriously the dude gat some issues.

  13. Easterners what is the problem with your drinking habits? Iwe Nkhoma you have disgraced your family and the country as a whole. Iam sure that Nkhoma has never traveled to have the hotel or motel room experience. Iwe Nkhoma not everything found in the hotel room is for your free consumption. Am sure he thought all the beer that was in the room fridge was just a gift to him! Easterners bail out your relative. This cousin of mine has disgraced me!

  14. That is how we drink in Eastern Province. I thought it was part of room service, so I was just drinking competing with the source. Bemba cousins bail me out.

    • Which money did he have when he could not pay? Just come back and enjoy tujilijili @1pin for 4. Enough to knock you and your chorts down for several days.

  15. Napapa sana! Imwe ba PF, there is such a thing as orientation before you send amafontini yenu out. More embarassment in our faces.

  16. knowing Ethiopia he was hooked with some of those irrestistable beauties. Can not blame him if he was not told as first time traveller. You cannot drink $2000 worth of beer alone impossible. make sure you caayr youe own cah for such extras.

  17. And the wife is waiting back here in Zed. Probably she is now pestering LCC to send her to Ethiopia to be with hubby in his time of need.

  18. that is why Zambia is not developing. The country has money which is being wasted by these poor fools with no concern for the other poor masses. He should be dissmised from his duties when he comes back. our cities and towns are so dirty because these fools brains are fool of beer and they can’t think properly. i miss disciplined councillors in kk days.

  19. Thyz z wat has been hapening in previous regimes wen thyz guyz go out,thy drink and hav serious sex 4geting y thy hav been sent there……pliz PF govt dont allow thyz nonsese to go on.let th bastard pay himself nd not taxpayers mane to bail him out.To my president….pliz fire him th moment he shows up pa zed.Hz an embarrssment to hz family and th nation at large.

  20. THERE WAS A MISUNDERSTANDING OVER THIS MATTER AS THE COUNCILOR WAS ABOUT TO CHECK OUT THE PEOPLE AT THE HOTEL COULDNT WAIT FOR THE SPONSORS THE ETHIOPIAN CITY COUNCIL TO PAY THE BILL HENCE THEY CALLED OUR EMBASSY AND WHEN THE ETHIOPIAN CITY COUNCIL OFFICALS GOT TO THE HOTEL TO PAY THE HOTEL BILLS THE ISSUE HAD BEEN BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION.THE ETHIOPIAN COUNCIL OFFICALS THEN BOOKED MR NKHOMA AT ANOTHER HOTEL AND RESCHEDULED HIS FLIGHT BACK TO ZAMBIA.MR NKHOMA WAS ON A SPOSERED TRIP AND THE MONEY PAID WAS NOT OUR TAXPAYERS MONEY BUT WAS FOR THE ETHIOPIAN CITY COUNCIL.I WAS IN ADDIS ABABA AND AT THE SAME SHERATONE HOTEL AS THE ZAMBIAN OFFICALS. I WITNESSED WHAT HAPPENED.

  21. This fool should have asked before taking those beers in the fridge of the hotel room. Those beers are really expensive and the chap thought yah this is free beer in the hotel room – NO. Those cash bars in the rooms are really expensive and one has to take them when you are really loaded. Kukonda Moba bafikili lipilani and stay broke. You should have atleast taken Fyaka as a trade mark for your part PaFyaka. Good luck in jail. 

  22. Klincha, Sheraton hotel is quite classy and expensive, you sure you were paying your own bills as well??? What about the beer, we have heard about?? Did you, by any chance, see any bleached woman with bambo Nkhoma???? You sound like birds of the same feathers with a Nkhoma!!

  23. Obviously they were in the company of the local Ethiopian women trying to impress them by buying expensive Champagnes, drinks etc.  

  24. #39 Waz the entire bill just for beveragez or there waz something else? Cannot imagine blowing K10million just on booze a night/week/month at some rezort. Hope the Lusaka Mayor haz facts for already sounding the warning.

  25. Coming to think of it, $ 2000 is nothing.  I witnessed a man spend about 50 000 RMB ($8000) is a classy disco here in China in a single night! It was announced in the club. The most expensive whiskey/brandy/champagne bottle on the menu was 10000 RMB ($1600). The name of the club is club G+  located in Shanghai and Hangzhou. These short people are loaded like no man’s business!!

  26. BA LT, get it right for us! Ist US Dollar for sure or is it ET Birr ( Ethiopian Birr currency )? And is this figure for one day or cumulative over a period of time?

    A Nkhoma anisebanya….. It Careful with Ethiopians…. They can manipulate you if you are not careful!!!

  27. He is not worth representing his people.I humbly implore the government to prepare him a dismissal letter.I personaly have no kind words for such characters.. :(

  28. NOT EXPOSED. in any hotel they put beer and wine. so you decide whether to take it or not. in most cases it is advise not to take any beer from the fridge. i thought it was for free. man mwatusebanya. ubututu kwati kubu……………

  29. Givens Lubinda’s Foreign Affairs Ministry will pay for this no two ways about it; if a mere councillor can rank up such a huge bill imagine what the Ministers and MPs rank up on hidden government expense. I can assure you Givens will happily pay this if it hasn’t already been paid…paying for shipping remains of murdered Zambians abroad is a big no no….

  30. I USUALLY TRAVEL AND WHAT SOME OF THESE HOTELS DO IS THAT THEY LOAD YOUR FRIDGE IN THE ROOM WITH BEER AND OTHER DRINKS WITHOUT IMFORMING THE GUEST THAT THEY ARE FOR SALE. SO IF NOT CAREFUL YOU CAN START CONSUMING THEM  THINKING THEY ARE FOR FREE. I GUESS THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED.

  31. Chipata boy has done it again. A similar incident happened in South Africa by another Chipata boy. Chipata chaps wake up and do right things. Image leave Zambia just to go and drink head off while his children and wife are wallowing in misery and hunger. Tamwaiteye bwino ba Mucime!!!!

  32. People be very careful with some establishments when travelling abroad.The moment they notice that you are a foreigner and loook loaded,they will issue a large bill for drinks hoping that you don’t contest for fear of embarrasement. Pay by CASH all the time and never wait for a bill, unless a local patron is tasked with the payments. The same happens with TAXI drivers in relation to fake notes.

  33. Nao a Ediga Lugu a kumupando wa apolisi mwaonese kumoa ka. Naku mahure konse nioipa ngako achimweni. More beer in your ass, uzakamba kuzogoro after mahure ataba.

  34. A councillor from Northmead??? would have understood if the chap was councillor in Sinda or those wards from Eastern. Dull punk.

  35. William Mulenga even if they put drinks. We just have to be responsible in life, this just show how we pipo would like to abuse resources. If that was his hard earned cash, he wouldn’t have accumulated such a bill. There is just something wrong with us pipo. We always find joy to have stuff for free.
