    • Well this does not vindicate UPND from being a party predicated on violence as a way of conducting politics.

      Besides there is a strong likelihood that the hit-and-run vehicle belongs to a UPND official.

    • If the antics of Kabimba where not coming from a Justice Minister and State Counsel it would have made for hilarous comedy.

    • @Kolwe Mwanakolwe, seems you are illiterate as far as medicine is concerned. My dear a systolic blood pressure reading of 120 is normal. And a Diastolic reading of between 80 and 90 is also perfect. A person is at risk of suffering a stroke when the Diastolic reading shoots above 90! I hope you’ve learnt something! Please next stick to the topic rather than bringing up stuff you least understand!

  1. Wynter Maize Kabimba & mwaliteta must be summoned & charged for issuing an alarmist statement that UPND killed the cook. MHSRIP. mwaliteta must also be taken to task by the family of the cook. He pushed the guy into campaigns hence ended up doing a job that was not his but mwaliteta’s.

  2. What has Winter Kabimba got to say to this? He was too quick to utter the unprintables before consulting with the PF Police. I am sure if he had a chance, he would have advised the police to withold the findings of the postmoterm. He must be very upset the fact that Katanga devulged the information to the Times of Zambia before Kabimba got the facts. He is now embarrassed and we shall see how he will handle this aspect. Obviously, if you asked Katanga today she would want to twist the facts to suit Kabimba’s assertions lest she loses her job. The beauty is that the results of the postmoterm are already in the public domain and nothing can be done about it. Winter must learn to tame his big mouth. His pride will lead him into oblivion.

    • kALYATI, THINKING AND TALKING USING YOUR RUNNING ASS TO WIN FAVOURS FROM PF WHEN THE MATTER IS ABOUT SOMEONE’S LOST LIFE AND YOUR VERY PF POLICE HAVE CONFIRMED IT AS A HIT AND RUN ROAD ACCIDENT.

    • Who saw Mwaliteta’s cook last the day before his dearth? Did Mwaliteta’s cook go to sleep alone in the house/lodge the last night he went to bed? Who were with the cook the night and hour when he left his sleeping place/house/bed at the time of his leaving to be found in the reported road accident? Could it be an inside brutal act but turned political to cover up foot prints or clues or to hide the actual murderers lest they reveal the unthinkable? Or could it that there is a political party which is instigating and manufacturing political violence and dearths so that they make political capital out of accusing other political enemies? Give answers to your inner souls to the approval of The Almighty God.

  4. I am taken aback by these findings. Can the police tell us. Did anyone see the vehicle that killed lyakoka? or did any one see tyre marks or heard a bang when the poor fellow was hit? how are the injuries on Mr. Lyakoka’s body. He was found 100m away from PF campaign camp,honestly someone should have seen or head a bang or squirking tyres every driver tries to avoid hitting a person by applying breaks. Being 100m away from the campaign camp means the young man was not alone. someone must have seen what happened. But Winter should tone down while UP & Down should work on the violence tag they have earned themselves. Baane, Zambia is bigger for all of us to share. You can contribute to its development in any position rather than being in Govt of the day. so stop boLumpen Kabimba and…

  5. Chances are that he could have been killed by people very close to him. May be he could have be found working with the opposition usually people who are guilt are quick to point fingers to cover up. Mwaliteta needs to be questioned where was the boy going or coming from when he met his fate who was the last person he talked to before meet his fate. The police needs to think outside the box

    • The unfortunate situation with our Zambian police is that they have lost professionalism in the way they investigate .They have become political cadres who wait to be told or instructed to turn right if evidence is on the left or to turn left when evidence is on the right or to remain at attention as a show of discipline even when criminals or unrully cadres or ruling political leaders commit crime in front of police men and women.BUT I HAVE FAITH IN MY ALMIGHTY GOD AND I TRULY BELIEVE HE ALLOWS THE DEVIL AND HIS AGENTS TO BEHAVE THE WAY THEY DO FOR HIS MIGHTY TO BE REVEALED TO THOSE UNDER THE HAND OF INJUSTICE.

  6. wow! he died in a road traffic accident? something doesnot add up here, in the post newspaper, mwaliteta is quoted saying that theboy went outside( not sure if it was out the hotel room or outside the hotel grounds) for short time to answer a call in the dark bare feet. Then how does the road traffic accident come in? what about the machetes from upnd cadres claimed by kabimba?

    • Why leave a motel room to answer a phone outside.What about his room mates or any other associates who were with him.What security details and sleeping arrangements did Mwaliteta have for the boy.If I was in charge of this investigation,Mwaliteta like late Mbandu’s UNCLE should have been the first to be picked to help with investigations.

  7. So all the hoodwinking of opposition MPs to resign or get appointed into the PF govt is meant to have these MPs resign or get expelled so that By- elections are held which will see PF using the influence of being a ruling party to win the By-elections and assume absolute majority in parliament in order to remove R.B’s immunity, just for the purpose of embarrassing him internantionally so that whenever he is invited, the PF government would announce to the world that he is facing serious corruption charges.

  8. I thought there is a 24 hour police road block just some metres away from the spot being described. How come police did not see that until the body was found in the morning? Opposite Cross Roads there is some activity every time of day and night, and no so that accident happen?

    I am not suggesting anything but knowing that place I had a few questions

  10. Last year was at Crossroads as a Guest and having beer in the Bar, a person was hit just around 23hrs and it was loud enough for all of us to get by the gate and Cross roads guard rushed their it was a hit and run. We called the Police using our mobile and the Man responsible was arrested driving a GRZ vehicle the next day. Police should equally get info from the Guard on duty on that fateful day.

  11. Wynter has all the data, he is justice minister and he opened his stinking mouth that he knows who did it. let the police interogate him. If it was HH by now the police would claim looking for him and he should come out in hiding as we the police already know where u are hidding (ofcourse failing to get him despite claiming knowing where he is hidding). ha ha ha

    • Do you have to leave your room, and your guest house premises for you to answer the call? What kind of a call was it? Have the police investigated who called him and what they were discussing. For me, I think we are not beeing told everything on this. And even the killing by political opponents accusation dont make sense either. Why target only him, and after killing him, they should risk carrying him from wherever they killed him and dump him near the lodge if political violence is involbed? If they hacked him near the lodge and you claim its so near, why didnt pipo in the bar hear that somebody was been beaten?

  16. AFTER FAILING TO WIN SUPPORT FROM ZAMBIANS, THE UPND HAS RESORTED TO THE MAPATIZYA FORMULA. AND SINCE THAT RESOLUTION, THERE IS A LOT OF VIOLENCE FROM UPND. PLEASE NOTE THAT ZAMBIANS WILL NOT ALLOW UPND INTO STATE HOUSE. YES SATA MAY MAKE SOME MISTAKES. BUT THE ALTERNATIVE WILL NEVER EVER BE UPND/HH. OTHER PARTIES LIKE NAREP OR ADD OR MAGANDE’S PARTY MAY MAKE SENSE AFTER WE ARE DONE WITH PF. BUT NEVER UPND. IT IS TOO TRIBAL, REGIONAL, VIOLENT, CHILDISH IN APPROACHING NATIONAL ISSUES. AS FOR NOW, IT IS PF FOR 10 YEARS. IF THEY WORK HARDER WE MAY ALLOW THEM 15 YEARS.
    AT THIS RATE, UPND IS CAPABLE OF CAUSING THE RTA LEADING TO THE DEATH OF MWALITETA’S BOY. AS ZAMBIANS LETS STAND UNITED AND REJECT UPND THE NEW PARTY OF VIOLENCE.

  19. Actually they were just instructed to say it is a hit and run case (road accident) to cover up their satanic sacrifices in order to win the by-election. The nation now knows already their satanic practices.

  21. Imwe bantu ba police nao afunikoyendako pang’ono ku sukulu. A post mortem cannot determined that someone died in a road accident. It states the cause of death upon which a criminal investigator bases his assumptions. Of course given all the other evidence. So bakamba chiyani ba Charity?
