Riots have broken out in Livingstone bringing business in the tourist capital to a standstill after UPND cadres ran amok following the arrest of their leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Shops have been closed and some roads in the city centre blocked by UPND cadres protesting against Mr. Hichilema’s arrest.

Police are using teargas to disperse the cadres who are demanding the release of Mr. Hichilema who has been detained at Livingstone Central Police.

Mr. Hichilema was arrested a while ago in connection with the death of a PF official identified as Harrison Chanda.

The late Chanda who was Monze PF District Chairman is believed to have been killed during a political clash between PF cadres and their UPND rivals in Livingstone yesterday.

Mr. Hichilema was picked up this afternoon after the police surrounded the Lodge he was staying at.
Others picked up include William Banda and Mr. Hichilema’s special adviser Douglas Siakalima.
The police are yet to slap any charges on Mr. Hichilema and the other party officials.

And Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu has disclosed during a media briefing in Livingstone this afternoon that the UPND officials were picked up to help with investigations.

Mr. Lungu said the number of those picked up so far in connection with Mr. Chanda’s murder stands at 27.

Mazabuka MP Garry Nkombo and his Kalomo counterpart Request Mutanga along with other cadres were arrested last night in connection with Mr. Chanda’s murder.

“Hichilema who was apprehended around 16:00 hours has been charged with proposing violence contrary to section 91 (1) of chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia,” she said.

Mr. Lungu also revealed that police have picked up sharp instruments from the UPND command centre in Livingstone which they suspect could have been used in the murder.

The Home Affairs Minister accused the UPND of resorting to violence after realizing that it was losing Thursday’s bye election.

Police Inspector General Stella Libongani and Southern Province Police Chief Charity Katanga attended the briefing.

Meanwhile, the UPND has described the arrest of its key officials and other cadres as an act of intimidation.

UPND Spokesman Charles Kakoma said the Zambia Police is been used by the PF government to cripple the UPND’s campaign machinery in Livingstone.

He was speaking in Parliament this afternoon when he rose on a point of order over the arrest of the UPND MP’s and other officials.

Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has since ordered the state through the Vice President or Home Affairs Minister to present a statement to Parliament on Thursday over the arrest of the UPND MP’s.

And And Southern province police commissioner Charity Katanga also confirmed that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema was apprehended with 9 others at White Rose Lodge along Lusaka Road in Livingstone.

“Hichilema who was apprehended around 16:00 hours has been charged with proposing violence contrary to section 91 (1) of chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia,” she said.

Mrs Katanga said William Banda was arrested with 14 others in Ellen Brittel. She added that all the people that had been arrested would be screened to help police with investigations.

She said the police were geared to ensure that peace prevails in the Livingstone by election.

And thats all you can say. We should all work towards maintaining peace and not war. Its sad that the young man is dead, the culprits should be brought to book.

    • @ jay and mungolozi, what are you talking about here? firstly those two deaths are highly questionable. Firstly one mwaliteta´s cook is murdered bare feet throw by the roadside, his shoes later found in his hotel room, mwaliteta´s first reactions fingers UPND with questionable explanation that the victim ´walkout to ask a phone call´ when UPND cadres murdered him. To date we are stil waiting for an update from the police… now on the latest issue it was very careless and stupid for PF leaders to allow their chibuku drunk boys to go and attack their rival camp,, stranger than fiction both victims are NOT from livingstone… the question is why?.. if these two boys were not imported into livingstone no death would have be record.. period. These are blood scrifices!

Now you have killed 3 people in the same manner and you think Zambians can vote for you? Instead of denouncing who ever axed Chanda , you are celebrating for murdering chanda. What a killing party is UPND. Come 2016, you will be number last again coz of your childishness. Shaaaa.

Your president HH asked all single women copulating with PF married MPs to deny them sex! So, we know that insulting women is good culture in UPND and so is murdering PF cadres or assumed cadres who wonder near where UPND is camped. UPND is like the legendary Hannibal Hector and you cannibalise norms & morals. You go and describe a woman’s sacred parts just to defend the murderous behaviour of UPND cadres? What ulter nonsense and just remember, you are writing a pact with the devil with your violence and Zambians will never attach themselves to UPND, just because of violence.

  4. For no reason, I hope HH becomes the president, surely he has little interest in corrupt activities (looking at how much money he has )

    I think that you have a man who is willing and help your country with selfless interest, if you are not impressed with him you are clearly deluded.

      Surely we can have a Captain Solo amongst the current soldiers; is it because they carry guns without bullets. We need the Anil Sadat way to be done as the only way out of this mess.

      Thats basic business principle. Ask HH. He will give you more details

      0

      0
    • Both are possible! You can go out of business with healthy profits without being liquid because you won’t meet mostly the operational costs. It is also possible your healthy cash flow may not be good enough e.g you buy something for $1000 and sell it for $900 a thousand times over. Your cash flow is healthy but the losses will ultimately kill off the business.

  7. One of these days proposing a woman for marriege will be an offense in Zambia under the public order act. PF has been itching to arrest the UPND leader. But as usual they ve caught a dry fish! Not helpful for their reputation which is currently in tatters in SADC and around the world. Isn’t it? Shame! Difficult to return home really but I weep for my country!

    • You know what! At times I get upset with request for prayers even though I know it’s the right thing. When I remember how Christians were praying prior to the general elections in 2011, “we are praying RB out of office in Jesus’s name, we pray that God prepare his heart to accept defeat etc”. At times God allows his people to experience a little of what they are crying for and here is Micheal Sata for you.

    • Short memory indeed. I guess you were not born when Sata was formenting meyhem and unleashing terror on people when he was in MMD and as PF leader. Him and William Banda are the high priests of violence. All forms of violence should be condemned, whether authored by UPND, PF, MMD or NAREP. This has escalated to this level because of having a compromised police force where certain cadres have now got a feeling that they can do whatever they want and get away scot free. All unbaised Zambians can see the pattern in all these incidents and what the outcome has always been.

  14. The Zambian Police service is chasing a wild goose this time around. They are trying to build a case against Hakainde Hichilema on opportunistic tendencies. Mr.HH ‘s remarks about urging his rank and file membership to ‘react’ to the presence of PF hooligans in the vicinity of UPND quarters does not amount to ‘inciting violence’. ‘React’ does not mean/translate into lawful/unlawful killing of another person or does it inform the use of any form of force which can incapacitate a targeted oponent.
    ‘React’ in this context can be interpreted in a number of ways and none of them can lead to the conviction of Mr.HH beyond reasonable doubts.
    Further, the police charges are minor and laughable. We pity these desperate inexperienced police officers, pity.

  15. It is sad to listen to some comments with implicit irresponsibility. Nobody is above the law. There is no justified reason to butcher a human person to death. It is unfortunate to note that leadership of some political parties, can run out of common sense and resort to violence and anarchy to find their way to the State House. From my view point that is a clear-cut disqualification. Zambia needs economic managers for President not freedom fighters, when there is no colony. Shame to the Anarchist party!

    • You are not helping things at all by such comments. The gvt should be seen to put in place conditions in which every human being will be free and respected. There are electoral cord of conduct in Zambia e.g. cadres of party should not come to the camp of another party within a stated distance. These codes of conduct were put in place to prevent things like such deaths. You can arrest HH, arrest Mumba or who so ever but oppressed people will always fight for freedom, it doesn’t matter what you do. We have leaders that are daily oppressing citizens. Get to know what Mandela said at one time; “we in south Africa have learnt in a painful way that security for few is insecurity for all.” You are supporting an oppressive regime, one day the system you are putting in place will work against…

If he is wrongly convicted,we as Zambians are watching,& the world as a whole. Let not talk.about our Phds becaause that irrelevant but acting more like a cadre.

  18. @BOOM and WHATEVER. Perhaps we can ask the “ever green” Mushota and Tonga Bull to help interpret the word “react” in the context of HH’s remarks. There’s react and pro act. React is after some action has been applied on u while pro act is pre emptive. Isn’t ? Now did HH define this “reaction”? Did he say “kill” or “jeer” or what? Some one help. Mushota was asking for some help of some accounting semantics not long ago. I m sure I can be helped too.

    • Brother/sister
      Do not be confined to extreme versions of ‘react’. Be holistic in your approach, in any given argument, one would always run away from being precise. The sole premise for this behaviour is not be held responsible for any future possibility of an occurance/a happening which might be remotely or directly connected to your own utterances.
      It is the responsbility of a presiding judge to put questions at lengthy to Mr. HH and ascertain exactly what did he mean by the word ‘react’. It is easier for persons without legal backgrounds to charge Mr.HH and call for premature celebrations.
      He, Mr. HH must clarify his part before a judge and, even during cross-examination, a prosecutor will not achieve anything good for the state. ‘React’ can also mean to ‘look’ at someone…

THE ONLY WAY OUT FOR THEM IS TO SMEAR THE POLLS WITH BLOOD, VIOLENCE AND RIOTS SO THAT THEY CAN SET A PREMA FACIE CASE FOR APPEALING AGAINST THE ELECTED PF MP. THE BEMBAS SAY “UKUFILILA MU NSENGA.” IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT POLITICAL LEADERS SHOULD ALLOW THIS SITUATION TO GO ON UNABATED. THE PF ALSO HAS SOME VIOLENT ELEMENTS WHO SHOULD BE TAMED.

Yet you thought he would rule the nation with wisdom. What a tragedy for Zambia!

    That blogers reacted harshly to u because of your unpalatable writing. Honestly how can u celebrate on the death of someone? Do u realise that life is sacred? The problem with u is that u think u are very intelligent and wise, when actually u are not. 95% of what u vomit shows how desperately wicked u are.

  33. Pf killed its own cadre and threw him near UPND center so as to accuse the later of violence and murder. This arresting of UPND leaders and its campaign team in Livingstone is a sure way they PF want to rig the elections and this they will do because no one shall be brave to monitor polling stations. ECZ should postpone the elections indefinitely otherswise pf have already rigged these elections. They will stuff ballot boxes with ghost votes for their candidate. At the rate they ‘re going Pf will start war in Zambia through their misrule.

  35. Killer party UPND has now killed 3 people in a roll. 1 in Rufunsa and 2 in Livingstone. The sad part is that they are celebrating instead of showing remorse. These guys have no strategy really for they are pushing Zambians farther from UPND. Its really a party of underfives who think they can win elections by killing and shading blood. How I pray that the Good Lord God delivers UPND from being blood thirsty party. Sad indeed.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

    • Jailed for what exactly? Do you think Charity Katanga’s menstrual discharge passes for irrefutable evidence? This nothing more than political persecution after PF saw how much it had lost support in both Mpongwe and Livingstone. Get a real job man stop depending on tribal political appointments from Sata. He won’t be around forever to look after your family , clan and tribe. His incompetence and evil plus his age means he has a short political shelf life. Blogging in CAPS won’t make your nonsense authentic!

    • He is not the one who is mismanaging it. Blame the tribalist and your bread winner in State House. We are going through the same nonsense Chiluba inflicted on the nation in the 1990s . There’s just something wrong with you !diots from Northern and Luapula Provinces. We had relative calm under Levy and RB. But we are now back to a Police State. Shame on Sata. He is no Statesman but a relic from a must be forgotten past. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. But remember all governments eventually fall!

  38. Its a pity that Watch Dog bad boys can post their anti Sata/PF comments on this blog while some of us are blocked on theirs. Yet they claim that they are champions of press freedom when in actual fact they are mouth pieces of HH and UPND and will not allow any opposing views. E.G. at the time of writing, there is no mention of William Banda amongst those arrested because they know the negativity of this to the UPND and HH given his violent history but, they would rather mislead the readers that Zambia is fighting Kenya over exports of sugar when the truth is that the minister is protecting Zambia’s interests and must be commended ! This publication is just as bitter as its masters.

HH is rapidly sinking the UPND into political oblivion.The man is a novice in politics and has no idea of what opposition politics mean.Killing people for the sake of winning a seat in parliament is not only primitive but stupid.UPND is alienating itself from the people and very soon most well meaning supporters will abandon it.HH you have got it all wrong man!The fact is your strategies cannot win you the presidency.Tawakwata amano.Even your cows will not vote for you if they are given a chance to vote.Being rich does not man ypu qualify to be president.You are power hungry,selfish & a tribalist!!These things will NEVER take you to plot 1 no matter how many you have killed for your selfish motives!!

  41. It has now become an established order by the PF system to sacrificed their own cadre so as to provoke tension in situation that are potentially volatile. What was Chanda doing in Livingstone to warrant his life being sacrified to promote PF supremacy even in regions where their polularity is non-existence? The PF embarked on this violent sacrificial experiment on their own cadre in Rufunsa and attepted heap the blame on opposition parties. In Livingstone the PF satanists have now sacrificed two lives. THIS IS A SIGN OF PF FAILURE TO PROMOTE PEACE IN THE COUNTRY.

  42. UPND be very careful of the traps being set before you, retaliation in the name of self defense is not the solution they will implicate you with a tag of violence. No one will know the difference between who is violent between PF and UPND. An example is Uhuru and Ruto of Kenya facing trial at the Hague .Uhuru is accused of retaliation. It seems you are being provoked by strategy and they may use this as one of the defenses for the commonwealth.

  46. Chanda has been killed by whoever moved him from Monze to Livingstone to go and disturb the peace, unfortunately UPND cadres or vessels were only made to look like the inciters while the actual inciters look like victims. All part of the genius’ plan to divert and deflect the attention from the abuse of the rule of law to making HH look bad. This whole thing is engineered from high up and poor useful *****s will continue dying for what they understand not. Such a shame!

Tongas have declared war on Bemba speaking people,these includes Lundas of Luapula, Aushis,Cishingas,Tabwas,Batwas,Ng,mbos, Bisas,Bwiles, Lalas, shilas, these tribes have similalities interms of names. what simply mean as long as you fall in this catigory you are prone to be killed by tongas. It is hight time the bemba speaking people open thier eyes and fight back. No matter what you think this is real that is what conelius mweetwa said. It is up to you to defend your self. It has repeated itself, MAIBUYE. ANC of Harry Mwanga Nkumbula inflicted alot pain in Mufulira including mads so Tangas are MADERES by nature.

    • Stop inciting tribal war here, deal with your deranged leader who is abusing our police force. It will only take the commonwealth to suspend Zambia for all you satanist worshippers to retreat. Sata has gone senile and should be impeached or someone will take the law in their own hands.

  51. The loss of life is very unfortunate. PF cadres going to an opposition camp site is wrong. Having a rally when rallies have been banned is anarchy and a recipe for disaster. The arrest of HH is long overdue, but on the other hand, this is what he wants so that he can make himself a martyr. He has been saying it all the time..”let them arrest me, let them arrest me..”, after promising to make the country ungovernable. All said, neither PF nor UPND is showing maturity. We need an alternative political party to these two.

  52. These incidents must not be looked at in isolation. The broader picture will inform you that there is an alarming lack of leadership and statesmanship from the President and his hand picked clique that he bestowed in critical govt. positions. This should be a time when a president firmly faces the nation and implores all that are involved in senseless retarded violence to desist from the same or be forever left on the periphery of national involvement in any form. But of course, this would assume that objective, professional and robust state instruments are in place – either to cajole all and sundry into ‘line’, or roll out appropriate sanctions. The reality appears to be a weak, clueless President in the area of governance, protection of a nation and a clearly compromised state machine

    • Well said Observer.

      It is really sad that politics has become so violent, and lives are being lost. This trends makes it hard for one to think of a future in Zambia where political supporters will be more interested in real issues that affect them just a few pints of chibuku and attacking and killing each other. Supporters need to wake up and question their leaders on the many developmental issues affecting Zambia than simply being used by politicians. Politics is about finding ways to have a better Zambia.

    Zambians have taken to wasting time and manee fighting during never ending campaigns. During the whole 5 yr cycle this is all we see. When will we concentrate on development ? If they are not battling it out for elections they are battling it out appointing and dissolving boards.
    Until this changes the dream of lifting our pipo out of poverty shall remain nothing but a fleeting dream, to dreamed but never attained.

You have terribly mismanaged the country and no amount of your evil sacrifices will stop Zambians from seeing the frauds that you are. You are tribalists, criminals and thugs. Like your tribal warlord once warned…….you are sitting on a volcanoe. No amount of Muchinga monkey tricks will prevent from exploding if you do not respect the rights of none Bembas!

  71. Unfortunately HH and UPND are taking the same path that saw the demise of Nkumbula’s ANC. Some of us who were there during the UNIP and ANC period remember how violent ANC was. People used to die in by elections and that was one reason Kaunda pushed for the one party state. Those with short memories should recall the by elections in mapatizya,mufumbwe, chilanga, rufunsa and now in Livingstone. UPND fought with the MMD and now with the PF. They have to re think their political strategy. At the rate they are going like ANC they will never see the gates of state house because the rest of Zambia hates tribalism and violence.
