United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has accused PF Secretary General Davies Chama of attempting to assassinate his party’s candidate in the Mulobezi constituency parliamentary by-election Hastings Sililo.

Briefing journalists this morning on the Mulobezi political violence, Mr Hakainde said Mr. Chama aimed at shooting the UPND candidate when he allegedly fired his gun, but ended up hitting an innocent person who is now in hospital nursing a gunshot wound.

Mr. Hichilema said it is unfortunate that Mr. Chama’s driver is the one has been implicated in the shooting when it was Mr. Chama who allegedly discharged more than five bullets from his firearm.

Mr. Hichilema said the violence in Mulobezi was perpetrated by the ruling PF contrary to reports in some sections of the media that it was the UPND which instigated the violence.
He has since challenged Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani to tell the nation why Mr.Chama was not arrested and his gun released after it was confiscated following the shooting incident.

Mr. Hichilema said President Edgar Lungu ought to know that he will be judged harshly when he leaves office for failing to govern the people of Zambia as expected.He added that there is no doubt now that the PF are serious about reverting Zambia to a one party state.

Speaking at the same event, Friends of Edgar Lungu Director Emmanuel Chilekwa who recently defected to the UPND, has challenged the PF Secretary General to tell the nation the source of the 150 vehicles the ruling party recently imported into the country.

Mr. Chilekwa has alleged that part of the recent loan contracted from China is meant to be used for the PF campaigns for 2016 general elections.He said President Edgar Lungu will be answerable to the people of Zambia when he leaves office.

  1. Bembas and Easterners are always shooting and killing Lozis. Isn’t this the same Chama who has victimised and hounded out Prof Atanga from Zambia Railways? Chama and his fellow Bembas doesn’t like Lozis so what is he doing campaigning in Barotseland?

    • Chama should explain how his gun was used in this case. Why should a PF secretary general be moving around with a gun, and why no secure it? There are a lot of cases for Chama to answer. This a clear case of attempted murder

    • Oh this is Sata/Kabimba regime all over again.PF seems to scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to it’s choices of SG.How many times are the police/PF going to accuse UPND for their violent acts.? Zambians are tired of elections,violence,suppressed freedoms,poverty..Lets move on to more important things bane, it’s 50years after Independence and we are still behaving like stone age men.

    • HH was not at the scene when all of this happened. He has no right whatsoever to narrate what happened in Mulobezi. A good leader will condemn and appeal to his people for calm while investigating the matter. He has a holier than thou attitude and thinks his party members are above the fray when not. And he wonders why he is still toiling the dusty roads of shanty compounds for a votes after losing how many times now? MMD, UPND and PF are all violent. Grow up and take responsibility for once!

    • @Mulozi Tota, Bembas don’t hate Lozis plz plz that’s not true. Why should Bembas hate Lozis what have they done to them. Its so wrong to speck such hate speech instead of speaking love. What happened at Mulobezi let the Police investigate and bring the wrong doer to book that’s all. Lets not start making such alarming false statement which cannot help the situation

    • I am really shocked by these guns and shootings during campaigns. The police can’t protect innocent citizens from these political criminals.
      And my country Barotseland is the most hit and victimised by these injustices. this is really getting out of hand.

    • You know the problem with you people you seem not understand the real issue behind this episode. To start with honourable Chama did not start or provoke any one. It was the upnd cadre who started the fight. Let the police investigate and get to the bottom of this.Remember that the police is very professional and they are doing a recommendable job.

    • You are foolish. Has PF condemned the violence for you to expect HH to condemn it? What has Lungu as President said about the same violence? Your Lungu is already President and is saying nothing. HH is just a citizen but has said something. So which of the two would you trust to rule the country?

    • Unfortunately, you have scales in your eyes and cannot see the truth that is glaring at you. Eye witnesses said Chama shot at the UPND vehicle aiming at killing the UPND MP, a lodded gun was found in his posession, but he ran to the PF police and turned the story around…. Are you saying the chief who has given Chama 24hrs to vacate the area for shooting his subject is not telling the truth? Some of you are really surprising because you sound so heartless. You want to blame HH even when he is a victim. I wish you knew that by so doing, you are actually making PF very unpopular because the people on the ground know the truth. Remember Chama shot in full view of other people. they saw, they know and they are talking. You don’t have to be partisan all the time, apply common sense sometimes.

  5. What! That $200 million dollar loan from CHINA is for PF campaigns! This is a scandal! We have to kick these thieves OUT otherwise we will be left with nothing! This grand corruptions explains the sudden wealth of all PF cadres. Simple dog sellers have now become billionaires owning posh flats in South Africa. Where is the so-called Anti-Corruption Commission? Where is the Pilato Police?

    • @ Eddy, I don’t want to be personal, but we are talking about human life here, jokes aside. Partisan politics is rubbish if you cant use your common sense and fail to be empathetic with others. We are all Zambians and human beings above all. No one is fit to be shot like a wild animal in the name of politics.

      If people reject you after giving you the position, there is something you haven’t done right. The best you can do is to advise Lungu on how he can win their confidence rather than killing whoever is perceived to be on the other side. People have choices, and we aught to respect that in a democracy. You don’t have to be enemies and start killing each other unnecessarily.

  12. If HH was a genuine leader, he could have started by imploring his followers not to be enticed into violence. But alas ! All he has done is to create an impression of being a victim. No word to condemn the violence. That Chilekwa is a dangerous man even more than Chama

  13. HH should strategically position himself for victory next year. Should portray maturity in whatever he says. As for the current leader look how he falls out of favor from those straggling to make end meat !! I mean the issue of taxes on rented houses. Many will be adversely affected but alas it will fall on deaf ears.

    Look at the way they bend when the so call mine investors cry!!. But who should these people lessen to???? the local poor or the so called investors. Land lords will just include the clause “ZRA tax inclusive” . Tenants will be the end sufferers. HH take advantage of this weakness on this gluttonous government !

  16. for someone to discharger a gun in self defence there must be proof of threat to the security of that person was anyone in The SG ‘s entourage injured physically or was there vehicle damaged you don’t just fire a gun aiming at someone if you have not been attacked and merely doing it on anticipating an attack . maybe some details are missing in this story

    • So yu want them to wait to be injured or vehicle get damaged before they can protect themselves, I don’t think that would be wise remember those who were murdered in Livingstone and Choma (may God judge the murderous), the Mapatzya formular is real in case you don’t know

    • To all bloggers, ladies and gentlemen, if Zambia continues to put education on low priority; violence, intimidation, patronage, insults, ignorance and questionable voting patterns will continue. You may blame HH or ECL, or RB today, but these problems will continue beyond the lives of these leaders if the majority of our voters remain illiterate and poorly informed about what Government is and how the three wings of government operate. At the moment our people do not know the roles of Parliament and Government Ministries. Ruling parties continue to MISINFORM people that voting opposition will annoy the President of the ruling party who would then instruct Ministries not to implement development projects in that area. But all Zambians regardless of party affiliation pay taxes.

  26. If LUNGU does not remove CHAMA as SG for PF, something big is going to happen to him. Chama is a very reckless guy. The more reason the youths in Eastern province never wanted him at all. Infact has got better reasons why he appointed CHAMA as the SG for PF instead of a decernt MWILA that SCOT had appointed earlier on. Chama is like feeds on Human flesh. It is a timely warning for LUNGU to really check on this. GOD HIMSELF SAID NO HUMAN BEING SHALL BE ALLOWED TO SPILL BLOOD OF A FELLOW HUMAN BEING UNLESS IN UNKNOWN CIRCUMSTANCES. CHAMA thinks he will live forever, never my brother, this is just mare politics, more virulous ones are now no more, just sober up.

      Just campaign peacefully and you will win the seat especially given the massive financial support enjoyed by the party in power. This HH you continuously insult, threaten and hate is a Zambian who has friends, relatives and supporters just as President Lungu, another humble Zambian. Both recent history and the language you guys use does not portrays PF to be a non-violent party. Try and compare your language and that of those you call UPND cadres, you will find that you have more insults and very personal hatred for HH. You can still make a point and win without insulting the way you do. HH should fear for his life from you guys talk about him.

  27. Me me me, am simply confused now. I can’t wholeheartedly support PF, my party, because of contamination that has seeped into it. I can’t support UPND either because of its uninspiring outlook. MMD is dead and buried. UNIP exists only as ghost. A mirriad of small parties that command membership in the mouths of those who lead them are not worth bruising a toe for trying to support them.
    Where to Zambia? Again to claim non-political inclination is to repudiate existence because a human being is a political creature and all human existence is political.

  29. From a law perspective four things come to play:

    • The existence of a duty of care
    • Breach of duty
    • Injury resulting from the breach
    • Proximate cause of the injury

    We all owe a duty of care to one another and have to take reasonable care in exercising safety precautions as in the gun case. When you bring a weapon someone will get hurt. There was a breach that caused injuries to a man. If the risk of harm or damage was foreseeable, and the person failed to exercise reasonable care to eliminate the risk, they are liable. This is negligence which resulted in someone getting hurt. This is attempted murder the person should be in jail and the gun confiscated. There is a term in law called Vicarious Liability, the employer is responsible for his employee’s actions (Edgar Lungu)…

  32. To start with Chama is not a police Officer to shoot at anybody,which self defence is he talking about,when no physical confrontation occurred .PF like MMD those days of William Banda will face the rath. The only language PF listens to is violence. Since they want it will be given to them using the right dosage at the right time.
