    • They were protecting themselves from PF cadres. Police in Zambia are so useless. They failed to arrest PF cadres, now busy harassing UPND Supporters. Let it be. Your IG will soon be out of that office.

    • In order to be safe, everyone campaigning in this elections has to be armed to be ready to deal with pf thugs.

      And why doesn’t the police arrest pf thugs who freely walk with panga during their campaigns?

    • 2013:As the results for Mkaika Constituency bye elections pierced through the hearts of PF members last night, PF sources immediately pointed fingers at the raucous Defence Minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM), who they have accused of costing the party the elections.
      “Wherever GBM has been leading campaigns, we have lost elections. He was campaign manager in Muchinga Constituency and we lost to Howard Kunda, when we should have easily won. He was in the forefront of the campaigns in Chipata and Mkaika, where he overshadowed the campaign manager, Edgar Lungu, and look at the results,” the sources complain.

    • Conti………“It shows that people do not appreciate GBM and you cannot make him the face of the campaigns. It’s like whenever people see him they get irritated. He brings so much confusion, has no courtesy and he brags a lot. Zambians don’t like people who brag. They hate boastful people. We as PF must know that. So GBM is a liability,” the emotional sources add.
      “He went to Mkaika with a lot of thugs from Lusaka just like he did in Chipata. Thugs who were fighting other PF members. Well, we’ve been punished. Particularly, people of Eastern Province do not like aggressive people. GBM comes across as aggressive.”
      The sources say GBM’s ‘senseless’ endorsement crusade has clearly been rejected by the people as evidenced by the landslide defeat of the ruling party.

Miles Sampa [Commerce Deputy Minister] was right to caution against these senseless endorsements. The Vice President also warned against the endorsements. He has been proved right. It’s time to stop GBM. He is making the party unpopular.”
      “GBM repels people. They don’t appreciate his attitude and behaviour. This loss is on his head,” the angry sources say.

Every one has an opinion and no one has the right to stop anyone from having an opinion, but how responsible are we with these opinions that we make.. is this UPND\PF election battle going to build or destroy this country..lets take time to think about the future and not individual pockets..is it worth to have the money that we want in the midst of war, anarchy, violence..

    • When carrying pangas for personal use become a crime in Zambia?

      Those chaps will be free to go because they did use those pangas to scare any one, therefore hey did not commit any crime at all.

      Why the police picked on those chaps who done absolutely nothing while letting Kapyanogo and thugs scott free for using pangas to hack UPND in Shiwangandu.

      To be safe UPND should arm themselves as well to counter PF because the police is useless.

      How many PF cadres have died as a result panga fights and yet the police haves not arrested any PF thug?

      At my farm I use pangas when ever I go out in the bush.

      Police should arrest people using pangas to cause violence not people just carrying pangas in their cars.

    • Mapatizya formula !! The UPND chaps wanted to stage manage an attack and pretend it was PF behind the attacks. Even the attack in Shiwangandu they stage managed it and told the movie TV camera man to get ready with his camera.

    • The usual “empty tins” and “useful 1diots” have come out to either defend or justify this indefensible wrong. Carrying weapons of any kind should not be tolerated whether it is PF, MMD, UPND or any other political party.
      In this case the PF (Police Force) should be praised for a job well done and then encouraged to desist from fear or favouring of political parties by turning a blind eye to acts that are intended to lead to criminality such as this case.
      Those saying that it is not a crime to carry pangas and machetes should also answer why an “innocent” person would run away from the Police if indeed there was no intention to commit crime.
      Lets clean up our politics by electing responsible leaders. Sata was not one but it shouldnt mean that our next leader shouldnt be either.

    • In Physics, we call this Newton’s Third Law of e.motion!
      To every PF action, there will be sure and overwhelming reaction!
      Unfortunately our cadre Kampyongo is not educated enough to understand the risk of Panga for Panga which is the likely outcome when other players have to resort to protecting themselves due to police failure (PF) and unprofessional bias when dealing with cases!
      It is sad that Libongani has dented the prospect for Lady Cops to ever occupy that office again! Brenda Muntemba would have done a better job!
      Please Stop it!

  5. No Lucifer’s agent will reign over Zambia. I decree and declare that Zambia is called by the most High’s name, and therefore any one who wants Zambians to scatter in the name of illuminati, will NEVER sit on the throne of Zambia. I decree and declare that only the Chosen one will sit on the throne of Zambia. What is chosen on earth is chosen in heaven.

  6. Oh now we are alert because it was a UPND vehicle belonging to GBM.

    Why did they even flee?The presence of the pangas and machetes does not incriminate them.Did they commit any crime.Is there a new law banning the use of these items.

  7. Intolerance in Zambian politics appears to be on the rise as the election edges closer. In my opinion, the starting point to dealing with this should be the castigation of people who declare some areas a ‘no go areas’ for the opposition. MMD were mature enough to rebuke the claim when it was made by 2 of their MPs supporting UPND. Masebo made similar ‘no go’ threat when she ‘joined’ UPND. In both cases, HH and UPND have not disowned such inflamatory language or violence, rather they have embraced it. Is it any surprise that GBM ‘joins’ UPND and suddenly his supporters start carrying pangas? UPND urgently need to walk the talk and not just condem violence by the other parties.

      Why should we condemn the boys carrying pangas as if its an offence to carry pangas in Zambia today?

      Read the article carefully and avoid being emotional when commenting because your comment will be f00lish.

      The article did NOT mention what pangas were being used for . But for sure the chaps were found fighting.

      I would have been the first to condemn those chaps if they found wielding those pangas scaring people. But no they were just carrying those pangas for just in case they get stuck and need to cut some shrubs to lay on the muddy roads so their vehicle can pass through, or for self defence in case of an attack by PF cadres.

      Yes UPND supporters should arm them selves for protection against PF panga fighters.

      There is absolutely nothing to condemn here my…

    how many thugs did they arrest? This story is just meant to distract our attention to real violence perpetrators.

    • So what? Was she fighting with pangas or what? Get your brains checked please.

      Its no offence to carry pangas in Zambia as long as you not using them as weapons like the PF is.

      But for PF its not an offence to use pangas because they used them time and again with impunity.

      Has PF cadre being arrested for using hacking people with pangas?

  15. Those 3 men need to bring their A-game! They only had pangas for self-defence?

    The PF-sanctioned violent thugs should meet upgrades to their pangas -Mr Smith & Wesson would do nicely – All in self-defence of course.

  16. People who for so long have been harassed by the Panga Family (PF) are beginning to arm themselves and go on the offense such as in Mongu. Ba PF you are not the only ones who know where to buy pangas and how to use them. The police should now let us know if carrying pangas in a car is a crime. Mind you, you can use other objects for violence eg hoes, slashers, knives etc. So let us know if all those items should not be found in a car.

  18. PRINCE your comment that ZP is useless is a stupid view,let me tell u that am a cop and proud to be one, i have successfully prosecuted persons arrested for this type of offense with convictions here in luanshya,so if u know any useless cop and l don’t blame you for that,there cops who are useless to the core! your judgement is not fair,we are not all useless.My advice to my officers is that prove your worthiness by applying the law firmly to all especially political cadres,this offence of Being in possession with an offensive weapon is tried by the High courts of Zambia and carries severe punishment!
