    • The ‘cartel’ and Justice Sakala though, I am smiling. Fred and his cohorts never liked him and yes, they hounded him out of office using cadres and a few individuals suffering from Neighbourhood syndrome.
      Let’s see what tricks Mutembo still has under his sleeves. Expect him to fight back somehow, its just in him to so.

  1. VIVA LA VIDA

    I used to rule the world
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sleep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own

    I used to roll the dice
    Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
    Listen as the crowd would sing
    “Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!”

    • @Max!! Nostalgia is what you’ve given me right now bcoz of those lyrics.
      Nothing to be concerned with – It’s a Thank You in disguise

    • I love those Viva La Vida lines – For some reason I can’t explain, I know St Peter won’t call my name.

    • No one is above the Law,He once said The Law is Law.
      Now he is a Victim ,he has no power to do anything as DPP Now. His Vernon has been Paralyzed…………He is finally gone.

    • In Jurisprudence they taught us that the Law is King….and that all are but officials of the law.

      Mutembo, power emanating from a position is ephimeral. Now, stripped of your Bombasa, as Munshya would put it, you are an ordinary person and facing the Law for the “Law is Law”. What a poetic turn of events and how the mighty have stumbled or is it fallen?

  2. The Eastern Block Rules mirror seluR kcolB nretsaE. In short RB is back, Lungu dancing to his tune. They’re trying all the crooked tricks in the book to hound out Mutembo Nchinto and the lineup so far is impressive. All Eastern Block but one. Mathew NGULUBE, Enerst SAKALA, Mathew ZULU and of course the “Guinea Pig” Edgar Lungu and his boss Rupiah Wakoniwako Banda. They talk about tribalism in UP and DowN UPND and yet they practice it to the core. What a fallacy and a shame that instead of concentrating on the economy, free Fall of the Kwacha Lungu is just politicking since he came to power. Dismantling the legacy he said he will uphold. If Sata was to wake up today, only satan knows what Lungu will become. The venom of king cobra….

  3. At long last – Nchito’s arrogance knows no bounds. And even to the tribunal he will go kicking and screaming (if at all he turns up).
    Having said that, after reading the names of the judges to sit on this tribunal, it does seem tipped against Nchito for various reasons from the onset.

    But why does he not just resign?

  4. Ok this hw its done iwe kamudala ka nguni,i hope u hav taken a leaf frm our intelligent president,nochi filya walechita kwati chi nangwa

  5. I have a lot of respect for the justices chosen for the tribunal. However can’t help but to notice the KUMAWA MAFIA influence (NGULUBE, ZULU AND ZULU). We told you his was coming elo mwala dancer nyau tune! GOOD

  6. This battle has been set to be won by EL but will he win the war? It’s a pity Zambia is daily preoccupied with power positioning. RB once disclosed to a group of confidants how he hates his cousins, the Bemba. He hated the idea the colluded enmass to hound him out of power instead of partnering to keep away the Tonga from power. Now that he has am opportunity to exercise what he did not do when in power, he will trash the Bemba people from proximity of power. How will the Bemba react? Will they let EL go into next election? As this happens, the economy is doing badly, missed opportunities!

    • There are no permanent enemies in politics. Surprisingly as it may seem now the Bembas and the Tongas worked together to have Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe elected as Vice President of UNIP and subsequently became Republican Vice President at the expense of Reuben Kamanga. The Easterners refused to recognise Kapwepwe as Vice President and in frustration left UNIP to form his own party. The frustrations he went through under Kenneth Kaunda, such as being manhandled by marketeers, are well documented.

  7. Nkani yalula. Never in life think like fat Albert. Time for his Excellence to get the cartel answerable to the country. There is time to everything under heaven. So ka new educated (upnd) will be meandering about the issue.

  8. The problem is these tribunals sit for so long that the next election will be upon us before they realease thier findings. Ultimately justice will be done and they will not find enough impropriety to actually initiate criminal proceedings. Nchito will be paid back his salary and arrears end up in private practice and get even richer. The accusations and evidence as presented in the press are scanty at best. Nchito will walk and the tax payers will foot his bill.

    • If you know how the legal minds of Ngulube, Sakala and Silungwe work, delaying justice is not their style, Nchito will have his day before the tribunal per his request and the truth will set everyone free….

  9. A good government is one that listens to the people. We are glad, your Excellency. Thank you. We know you are for a cleaner more efficient Zambian government.

    His Excellency is possiblynThe Best President Zambia will ever have!

    Get soon and return to us.

    Nothing is impossible between the Faithful and God Almighty.

  10. Awe shuuwaa KUMAWA BASOPE. Despite the kwacha fall and the fuel shortages KUMAWA IS RULING FOR REAL. The upcoming by elections are a forgone conclusion. Looking forward to 2016.

  11. Never a dull moment in the People’s Republic of Zambia!
    By the time Lungu wakes up and realises he has work to do as president it will be election time 2016.

  12. Every body he has appointed are from eastern except one northerners. This is the same man who is crying about tribalism and nepotism. Zambia is in a lot of problems. We need an individual who will do things right. It might not be in our generation but I forsee alot of problems for this country!

    • Imwe namwe upuba fulu fulu mu muthu mwanu. Those are former Chief Justices. The best composition of a tribunal set up so far. If the former Chief Justices were all Tonga, the tribunal would have been an all Tonga or whatever tribe or mixed.

  13. ECL why did you have to be embarassed by the N’guni charade before doing the right thing. Now we wait to see what the tribunal will come up with. The composition of the tribunal, while made of distinguished personalities, is interesting though.

  14. Hehehehehe…Nchito thought he was untouchable when he went into a NO PROSECUTION of his case mwebene ati NOLLE. Chagwa mukali bane he knows that Nchito and Earnest Sakala ni dunamis fire impact remember it was Nchito and Mmembe who engineered the hounding of Sakala from his office manje it’s Sakala on the panel to investigate Nchito.Mmmmmmm…..can you smell what Chagwa is cooking??…hehehehehe….nice aroma indeed, I am loving this filimu.

  15. What happens if the President does not come back? Will Simbyakula refuse to vacate for Inonge Wina “as he is the chosen one”? This is how problems start. The President should have clearly stated that when the VEEP comes back, she should take over.

  16. Lungu is a president for months and as they say in Bemba umupama pamo utula ingoma’ Lungu is hit the same sport and surely the pay is very dearly especially Northern, Luapula, Muchinga and other strong holds for PF. Why didnt Lungu do what is doing as Justicd and defence minister ? The fight Lungu has taken is a wrong fight with 17months . PF is finished .watch the space

  17. I THINK THIS IS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. NOT THE KANGAROO COURT THAT NGUNI AND HIS TANDEM OF DISGRACED LAWYERS WANTED TO USE. NOW THE ONUS IS ON NGUNI TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE HIS ALLEGATIONS. MUTEMBO WAS JUST FORCED BY SATA TO BE DPP SO HE WILL NOT CRY OVER THIS JOB. IT JUST ADDS TO HIS CV. AND REMEMBER, THE TRIBUNAL IS NOT FORMED TO FIND MUTEMBO GUILTY. IT IS ONLY FORMED TO PROBE THE ALLEGATIONS AND FIND IF THEY ARE FALSE AND VOID OR TRUE. THE PROCESS WILL GO ON AND ON AND FINALLY MUTEMBO WILL BE FOUND INNOCENT. NGUNI WILL BE GRILLED BY MUTEMBO BEYOND RECOGNITION. LETS WATCH THIS MATTER UNWIND.

  18. I have noted with dismay that Zambians comment a lot on political subjects and not on developmental subjects. I am sure there will be a lot talked about this tribune and ECL’s perceived tribalism. ECL has done a lot of political changes but has remained conspicuously silent on developmental projects i.e. infrastructure development. The infrastructure development projects such as the KK international Airport and virtually most road construction projects have stalled and we need to be told that we have run out of money or we have changed our priorities and the emphasis is now on the cartel. The PF ace card was infrastructure and I do not mind whether the cat is black or white(ECL tribalism) so long as it catches mice (infrastructure development). Come 2016 this is how I will judge the PF.

  19. Some provinces have had no chief justices since attainment of political independence, ‘sfars I can remember, must be one of the reasons for the panel composition.

  20. Stupid decision by a dying President. It is suprising that a coffin is able to suspend the DPP.

    Please President Lungu, leave the DPP alone.

    You are about to die, dont put our country in flames.

    Mutembo Nchito is not the one who caused you to be a drunkard.

    You became a drunkard whilest in your mother’s womb.

    Lungu is cursed.

    • you are a very very, sick person in your head. Take your bitterness elsewhere. such emotions will destroy your wellbeing. may God forgive you.

    • PF member could be Nchito himself or Mmembe or Kabimba hiding as such. You are a very sick indidvidual, you need professional help you corrupt s……..i……..

    • REPENT OF THOSE WORDS MY FREND OR ELSE THEY WILL WORK AGAINST YOU, IO WARN U. YOU HAVE NEVER CREATED ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD, NEITHER HAVE I. BUT THOSE WORDS YOIU HAVE USED AGAINST A GOD CREATED ARE NOT RIGHT. REPENT OR ELSE…. DONT SAY NOBODY WARNED ME

  21. Welcome Malama to the Ministry of Information. Hoping your lengthy service in the Media Industry will show why you deserve that job!

  22. ipuli ngalya kulisha, lilapoleka. u speak loud and shout at pipo. dance to all drum beats, have all the answrs, but one day ipuli lika poleka.

  23. Reason why EL has appointed this team is because the Judiciary is infested and corrupted by Kabimbas choices. If tribunal was from the judiciary, Mutembo was going to be found innocent. So to ensure that justice is done, Independent and respected judges
    Now it is time for Mutembo to defend himself against Nguni’s accusations. after all this is what the PAST advised. So no more tricks PAST

  24. well done mr President!! It has been long coming. However, hope you have trusted lieutenant doing their work diligently – otherwise Nchito and the ‘cartel’ will try to dribble you !!

  25. Well it seems they are hunting each other and there are serious issues that are not yet exposed. Getting rid of Nchito is just one issue to completely rid the system of the cartel. But I hope Zambians will not be carried away by EL to the extent that they allow him another term in office. All we need now is peace and let those who want to fight through some conspiracies do it now but EL is sick and we should force him to rest and not run for the presidency again. Which hunt will never end in Zambian politics, instead arguing about policies and improving the economy, we are busy pointing fingers and fighting 😀 !

  26. It appears like in Zambia, we will never have a corrupt President being convicted. My analysis of what will follow is as follows;

    -RB like the late Chiluba will be let loose
    -The whole scheme was infact masterminded by EL and Rupiah whose Son cannot even come to Zambia. This is coming out from the way events are progressing
    -The tribunal will not even lead to Nchito being prosecuted but will recommend that Nchito be removed from his position
    -Nchito will be paid full benefits and will even be richer

    What an interesting country with tribunals with some justices who were once accused of corruption.

    Mr Lungu it appears that like your friend RB, your agenda is to finish PF-no wonder these useless appointments & statements you are making.

    Good Luck PF

  27. I thank the Almighty God for redeeming the people of Zambia from the ruthless CROOKS. Now that Nchito has been suspended, tomorrow I will buy the best wine to celebrate the demise of the CARTEL Mmembe and Mutembo Nchito considered themselves above the Law. They used all sorts of tricks to evade Justice and harassed the innocent. Our K14 Billion must be retrieved from this set of evil men.

    Members of the Tribunal are very respectable men of the Bench.

    I wonder what sort of nightmares will run through the minds of the cartel that tried to block Lungu’s Presidency. The Immigration Dept must seal-off the borders to offset notable crooks escaping the noose. It is high time Zambia’s sovereignty must be restored. All men and women must be equal with regards to the laws of the land.

  28. It’s quiet evident, that there is a negative and counter productive cross pollination of ideas between Lungu and RB. You have a scenario where a weak drunkard President is under the spell of a slippery old calculating Puppet Master. What you have now obtaining in Zambia is basically the rule of the Eastern Junta. The Kumawa Junta. Have no doubt about it RB is finishing off his Presidential term. Zambians you blinked again. You where forewarned.

  29. We know the architect of the whole scheme and the set goals.RB to be declared innocent due lack of evidence.We told you that Nguni was a hired gun.Now can you see how the situation unfolds.Those with eyes can see but most niggas can’t see.

  30. Ukusanda chakulya ku nkoko kunakilila.thats EL did to the bemba chaps,and mbeba yi maluma enfodzilila,thats what we Easterner have learnt from the past president.Its now clear E power.

  31. FOR HEAVENS SAKE GET TO WORK. WE VOTED YOU INTO POWER TO DEVELOP THE COUNTRY, AN CONTINUATION FROM WERE BA TATA SATA LEFT. BUT LOOK AT YOU. JUST HIRING AND FIRING PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY RICH. AS MUCH AS WE KNOW HOW CORRUPT THESE PEOPLE ARE, IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO HELP OUT RB WHO YOU HAVE BROGHT INTO OUR PARTY. IT IS PAY BACK TIME FOR THE MONEY HE INVESTED IN YOU. WE DON’T WANT YOU TO BRING HIS CORRUPT SON BACK IN THE COUNTRY. THERE’S FUEL SORTAGES IN THE COUNTRY TODAY, AND YOU DON’T EVEN COMMENT ABOUT IT. YOU JUMP OUT OF YOUR SICK BED AND ALL YOU THINK ABOUT ARE APPONITMNETS AND FIRING TO SATISFY RB? WAS HIS TORMATING YOU WHILE YOU WERE SICK? PLEASE HELP THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED YOU INTO POWER NOT RB…….YOU WILL PAY HEAVLY FOR THIS, SIR

  32. Even the “THIEF JUSTICE” Mathew Ngulube has resurfaced.It is clear that the RB/FTJ corruption fellowship is returning under E Lungu.God help our beloved Zambia

  33. EL is the one that created the chess board. While you and the rest of the chaps think nyama soya is ocastrating these maneuvers, Lungu shows the nation he is transparent in his health, let’s the courts handle RB’s case and the DPP is up against the nation.

    Viva President Nawakwi.

  34. Lungu is a good the tribunal is there not to prosecute but to proof one innocent bravo tenants of good leadership

  35. M’membe and his minions refer to other people facing allegations of crime as “criminals”. Now that one of their own is also faced with allegations and appearing before a Tribunal, is it right to start referring to Mutembo Nchito as a “criminal” even before the allegations are proved?

    • My Mmembes own standards, an accused is a criminal. But with Mutembo, it will be persecuted accused. That is why studying Law by night school is not appreciated. They get cantankerous when they qualify. Instead practicing they imagine law. This is where Mmembe and Antony Kasolo belongs. De-register them and re-sit under Mulyiokela as invigilator
      Truth is Mmembe has played a bad boy and detractor to the development of good governance in Zambia. He pretends that he is helping to build it but in actual fact he has been creating an atmosphere for him to get power. But we the wise from the east with our stupid mbuyas want to put a stop to this. And this is just the start. More is the offing. Wina Azania no Shula

  36. The outcome of this tribunal is already predetermined. The composition of the tribunal is not even tribally balanced. Three out of four are from ku mawa (Eastern province). This is another wako ni wako in action engineered by RB. Mr Nchito will be found guilty as charged.

    • No problem Mr Vodka, you are entitled to mislead yourself.
      Deep down your heart and soul, you know that Mutembo is not innocent. You know he has much to explain to the country. Hatred for innocent Zambians will not do. Mmembe’s trick has been priming poor Zambians minds to hate innocent Zambians he has a bone to chew with. The only crime Chiluba committed was to democratically beat his uncle Arthur Wina in 1990 MMD presidential elections. The only crime RB committed was to beat Magande in 2008. But because people like you are far from seeing this trick, Mmembe has flourished in persecuting innocent Zambians. What happened to Mukelebai Mukelebai, Justice Sakala, Justice Nchenga. The list is long and you know it. So there is nothing tribal about this noble team.

    • @ JL

      For your info, Chiluba was convicted and died as convicted person. That RB, Sata (RIP) and now Lungu are not allowing Ruling of the English High Court to be registered has resulted in USD 48 million loss to the People of Zambia.

  37. Please, somebody enlighten me – facts, not arguments:
    Why is there a need for the President of Zambia to appoint somebody to act as President, whenever he leaves the country for a few hours or days?

    What then is the role of the Vice President? Is not a ‘Vice’ anywhere and in any organisation the person who assists the President (or chairperson), and automatically acts on his behalf while he is away?

    • @IVO the vice president is in New York on official duties. Please widen your scope of reading and get to know what is happening around the world. Don’t restrict your reading to Chagwa.

    • Thanks for the explanation, Czar and Vodka!

      Since there are about another 190 countries “around the world”, I just cannot keep up with everything; some of us also still work…

  38. During Sata’s time the Vice President Guy Scott was barred by the constitution to be President and could therefore not act as President. From now onwards Mrs Wina will act automatically as President unless she is not around as is the case now.

  39. @ SIDO bemba ar not selfish like HH an urself we don’t support on tribe line u illiterate id.iot we support any meaningful candidates who humbles themselves an we don’t care whever LUNGU fires all de bembas frm cabinet an other senior positions. Nchito z a bemba bt dat does not giv him immunity to misbehaviour.Well done Mr president an point more tongas b4 they swallow u. They ar so bita Hacikala Hamatole lost

  40. It is Curtains Mr Mmembe and the Cartel . I said it yesterday, Mmembe’s Farting will be no more. With Mutembo gone no one will cover Mmembe’s Farting. The Cartel is finished. Their day in Court is coming . A Myrriad of Cases , both Civil and Criminal , will follow Mmembe and Mutembo, and yes ,also one Proprietor of Rainbow Party. Kasalanga njikata.
    Woe to Opportunists who are habouring the illusion that Mmembe’s Farting can get them to Plot 1 . The man is history.
    The Orange Overall worn by Spoiler Kapenda is still at Mukobeko Maximum Prison – Am told it is the Correct size for Mmembe. May the Prison Warders keep this overall in a Lice and Feacal infested area for this Nuisance who is coming home!

    • Well articulated Kark Marx reloaded.
      Mmembe’s farting is over.
      He will try to lift some legs here and there like a dying horse or chicken undergoing slaughter. He will cry that tribunal is tribal, it has “disgraced” Ngulube etc. Who will care. The truth is Mutembo and Mmembe is out of the court process. They will not be prosecuting but defending at least for the next 12 years.
      The team is noble even Kabimba knows it. Guy Scott knows it. KK knows it Sikota Wina knows it. VJ knows it.
      Mmembe is now history.
      EL has done it. Its over. Its over.

  41. @Choice amastoolpids every time you are thinking tribalism you can’t even think of the qualifications of the men. What is wrong with you people? When they select the national team you don’t bring up that nonsense but only in politics.
