Former President Rupiah Banda
Former President Rupiah Banda

Former President, Rupiah Banda has commenced legal proceeding against former Justice Minister, Wynter Kabimba, the Post Newspapers and its proprietor, Fred M’membe, in the Lusaka magistrate court.

Mr. Banda has accused the three of having published a contemptuous and defamatory statement.He has complained of an article allegedly issued in the Post Newspapers, by Mr. Kabimba.

The article in question suggested that President Edgar Lungu’s government is framing suspended Director of Public Prosecutions to cover Mr. Rupiah Banda’s wrongs.

Mr. Banda has said the article labeled him a criminal when the courts of law still consider him innocent.

He has explained that the matters complained of are capable of interfering with the cases that he is currently facing before the courts of law.

This is according the affidavit in support of the complaint filed by Mr. Banda in the Lusaka Magistrate court.

    • TROUBLE IS LUNGU IS WASTING TIME FIGHTING HIS PERCEIVED ENEMIES. I WOULD RATHER HE CONCENTRATES HIS EFFORT ON FIGHTING POVERTY BY FIRST STARTING TO ESTABLISH MILLING PLANTS IN RURAL AREAS. BUT I DOUBT IF THE GOVERNMENT HAS EVEN STARTED CONSTRUCTING EVEN A SINGLE MILLING PLANT IN ONE OF THE RURAL ZAMBIA. “MPOMBO WIBILIMA, ABABILIMA TABAFIKA”. ALO NALIMBI AT, “UWENDA NA NGOSHE EUMUPIPA NOKUMUPIPA”. YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SHIMILANDU RB IS HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS AND IT’S NOT A SECRETE WHAT RB WANTS FROM YOU AND WHY HE SUPPORTED YOU DURING CAMPAIGNS. UMWANA ASHUMFWA AILE NAMAFI KUBUKO. BA EDGAR, MULEUMFWA IFILELANDA ABANTU. MWIPOSA GUY SCOTT PANSE IN PREFERENCE FOR NTALAMISOKA, RB.

    • RB is fighting a losing battle against Mmembe et al.

      No matter what Lungu does, he won’t be president forever & all the plundering you & sons did, surely RB must face the wrath of rule of law, so is justice.

      Chief mambala playing victim, no way! RB just pay back what belongs to Zambians. RB is UNIP,MMD, PF & in “retirement”. We don’t want to hear about the “knee” story, all we want is justice after stealing Zambians tax payers.

      RB miserably failed to take on Fred Mmembe when he was president & wants to use visionless Lungu for a second chance of getting back to Fred.

      RB ni mambala!

  1. Banda,

    You are indeed a criminal-thats why even your children have run away from Zambia. It is indeed a fact that you are feeling more secure under Edgar as you able to pull some strings

    The late Chiluba your friend failed to take the Post to court when he was accused of being a thief because he knew that the Post would plead justification and reveal things that we did not know.

    I hope things don’t turn around for you as the court case commences

  2. Banda might just as well win with the Lungu/Banda made judiciary. Come 2016 people will release that voting PF was a mistake. You are only guilty if the courts find you wanting but when you are stealing in daylight people are watching ,the courts might be useless or bought so they might find you innocent. I think Banda is a criminal, see what is happening with Nsanda, if you steal from the poor people that is what you get. Mr. Banda will never be happy in the few years left of him. Innocent ECL is being used by the old chap, if ECL wants to live few more years he should not tolerate being used otherwise his ending will be worse than kanitundila. What life looks like in a failed State?

  8. What if Sata came back today, what would happen to all the mice. Would they go in hiding again? Sat had an effect on these people who suddenly think they are free to be all over the place. Damn!

    • Please, lets write comments that can help us move forward. Once dead, people never come back to life. Even the issue of someone being anointed didn’t help us because like i argued before, a dead person cannot choose a leader for people that are still alive and kicking, but believe it or not this was the song in Zambia prior to January 20th , 2015.

  9. He has got a point! We are in deed convinced he is a criminal! I don’t know that suing them will help in changing our view on Banda, ultimately, but it is worth to watch this axis of Zambian intrigue for top soap drama.

  10. Let RB sue also, he had received so much hate from Kabimba and Mmembe. He could not have justice under last dictator Michael Sata.
    This is his time. Go, go, go, RB, FP is captured already and you are now president in the absence of Edgar Lungu on sick leave.

  11. Have to say it I wish we still had GUY SCOTT. This administration is a joke. At least Guy Scott was in charge. No idea who is in charge now.

  12. Guy Scott was not in charge. He was there to make EL lose elections. But alas he failed. What is happening is Mmembe who thinks he is in above Zambians. This should send a message to those who argue for reduced presidential powers. Mmembe wants Zambians to elect president of their choice and then he declares himself as supervisor of the president. But it is a matter of time.

  13. Banda is just an rushing the heat on his own. Kabimba and Mmembe have more data about the wrong doing of Banda more than Lungu. Lungu was an outsider during the reigns of Sata . Therefore those from Eastern shouting loudly will hold their heads in their hand with shame. Lungu must take tame Banda as things start happening at the neck speed . It’s Lungu who is seen as weaker and no foresight. Banda wants Mutembonout they used kangaroo law and backfired. The case is in court why Lungu constitute a tribunal? Was Lungu not part of the PF that ratified overwhelmingly Mutembo? Where was Lungu all these three years ? If he had prior evidence could have resigned citing Mutembo claimed criminality as a minister of justice. Mutembonout has a dossier about Lungu and Ruphia watch the space
