Sudanese militia free Felix Ngoma

General News Sudanese militia free Felix Ngoma

Felix Ngoma, a Zambian National who was abducted in Sudan’s volatile Darfur region about two weeks has been freed by his captors.

Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary George Zulu has told a media briefing in Lusaka this afternoon that Mr Ngoma was released at 12:00 hours today and was surrendered to the Sudanese government authorities who have been part of the negotiations for his release.

Mr Zulu says Mr Ngoma will undergo medicals tomorrow before proceeding to Khartoum on his way to Zambia.

The Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary has thanked the government of Sudan, International Organization for Migration, United Nations Agencies, the Zambian media and the Ngoma family for their support to the government in securing Mr Ngoma’s release.

Mr Zulu states that Zambia stands for nothing but peace and that the government of President Michael Sata will do everything in its power to protect Zambian citizens so that can enjoy their freedom.

Mr Ngoma who is a humanitarian worker with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) was abducted by suspected Janjaweed militia about two weeks ago as he was returning home from work

    • Our God is awesome. Someone prophesied that he will be released this week in Jesus name. This is trully a Miracle.

    • @Nostradamus
      you see??,,,, even a prophesy came thru,,, that Justice Minister his up coming himself Wynter Kabimba was going to chita po chi mo

    • @Ndobo, I don’t understand you. You mean Winter K knows some people in the “militia” whom he talked to? Maybe you right, those who trained some PF “youths”.
      So our planned weekend fundraiser meeting with abena GBM, Changala & other businessmen is cancelled. Ka $1million nga kalimoneka mailo.

    • @Ndobo and @Nostradamus, instead of bickering like children on this issue, it would help even you could just appreciate that our friend has been released. Lets learn to differentiate between stupid politics and a genuine cause to save one of our own. To some of you, he might have just been an issue to start arguing about, but to some of us, he was a friend, a father, a husband, an uncle etc. Lets get serious with some issues fellas.

    • @Coachez, vote for yourself, you may score 1.
      Sorry I thought Felix was alive and enjoying!!? Why do say “he WAS your friend, uncle and whatever..?”

  1. We thank the lord for his release.
    May he arrive home safely now.

    But….wait a minute… Winter Kabimba is linked to militia supporting Sudanese government which militias (janjaweed) are reported to have abducted him. Is Winter playing games here?

    • @Village …. Here we go again with your Winter. ACC need clear out Winter from this. ACC need follow up where the ransom came from, and who received it in the PF ranks.
      It is just to CLEAR out the speculation.

  2. DID THE GOVERNMENT PAY A RANSOM OF $1M HAS CERTAIN ELECTRONIC PAPERS PUBLISHED. OR WAS IT JUST ANOTHER HH SPONSORED IDEA TO DISTABILISE THE COUNTRY? ISN’T THIS THE GANJA-WEEDS HH SAID PF GOVERNMENT IS SENDING MILITIAS?

    • Try to make sensible comments at times like this please. Zambians and especially Felix’s friends and relatives are still traumatized over this man’s near tragic experience. Janjaweed are extremely ruthless and Felix was saved from the jaws of death by the grace of God. How then do you start roping in HH in all this? What has he got to do with this extremist organisation? Be serious not kubwatabwata just because there is a keyboard in front of you.

  3. ANYHOW, THANK GOD NGOMA HAS BEEN RELEASED. ZAMBIANS DON’T TAKE SIDES IN WAR SITUATIONS IN OTHER COUNTRIES. SO IT’S ONLY SENSIBLE TO LEAVE ZAMBIANS ALONE AS THE GAIN FROM THOSE WHO DON’T TAKE SIDES ARE LESS OR NONE AT ALL. THANKS GO TO OUR GOVERNMENT AND ALL PARTIES THAT WERE INVOLVED IN MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SET NGOMA FREE.

  4. Janjaweed was informed that Zambia was already a very poor country that could not afford to pat away with $1 million dollars. On that basis Felix was released. Next time choose a proper route when going home, avoid shortcuts.

  5. This is what makes Brian washed UPND cadres clueless and jump from one story to another without due understanding of what they are talking about. This is what I sated dealing terrorists you need to have a middle person to negotiate on your behalf. The insults and hate levelled at PF especially Mr Sata is one of the worst character assassination, name calling, rumours that Sata is dead. First constitution, turning the parliament into a battles field of ego, political mis calculations, ideologies of anarchy and so forth. Then without any consideration, UPND through ZWD spread rumours that has been one of the worst in modern times that has negative impact on the economy, social, Christian values, peace and stability of the country. Since all these have not gained UPND political mileage.

  6. @ndobo. So you are saying that Kabimba’s friends are rogues, terrorists and thugs like the Janjaweed They say you can know the character of someone by the company they keep.
