It has emerged that the UPND cadre who was shot and reported to have mysteriously disappeared from his Livingstone General hospital bed has in fact been arrested by Police and charged with threatening violence.

Home Affairs Minister Davis Mwila has disclosed that the UNPD cadre Mushaukwa Mushaukwa, who is alleged to have been short by PF Secretary General Davis Chama in Mulobezi, was arrested and charged shortly after being discharged from Hospital.

Mr. Mwila has further disclosed to Qfm News by telephone that Mr. Mushaukwa has however been released on Police bond.

He says the Police want the UPND cadre to help with investigations into the recent violence that took place in Mulobezi.

And Mr. Mwila says he finds the opposition UPND, which earlier disclosed in a statement that Mr. Mushaukwa had mysteriously disappeared from his hospital bed, to be a party of jokers.

Earlier, UPND Chairperson for Legal Jack Mwiimbu alleged that UPND cadre Mushaukwa Mushaukwa, who was allegedly shot by PF Secretary General Davies Chama in Mulobezi had mysteriously gone missing from his Livingstone General Hospital bed where he was receiving treatment.

Mr Mwiimbu told the media that this was a serious concern to the party especially that during UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s visit to his hospital bed yesterday, the victim revealed on camera that he was allegedly shot by the PF Secretary General Davies Chama and not the driver.

Mr Mwiimbu said that strangely, Mushaukwa had now gone missing from his hospital bed.

He further stated that the UPND would hold the Zambia Police and the PF government responsible for whatever happens to their party member whose whereabouts are currently not known.

    • It’s a party of jockers indeed,always wanting to alarm the nation before getting facts. Just the other day HH claimed that Chama shot the UPND cadre, whilst his MP pointed his finger at Chamas driver.

    • Who discharged him?
      They went to the Hospital and somehow he was discharged without the knowledge of the Hospital staff?

      The leaders in PF have failed- they are not good enough to be MP’s let alone Ministers, Chama, Mwila you name them all, are just political mistakes.
      Ugly they are , I must add.

    • LUNGU please Fire thug CHAMA for the sake of peace in the country.

      People can only take so much stupidity before they erupt take the law into their hands.

      At least the hospital staff when asked by UPND should have told us the police arrested him upon discharge.

      Why did PF not alert his relatives or hospital staff that the patient is being discharged and arrested ? Instead waited for UPND to raise the alarm about the missing person.

      When the truth comes out, Lungu will fire this CHAMA thug, just like Kabimba was fired.

      It is like a cyclist who strays on to the road, and you bash him with serious injuries. Then the police instead of going for motorist and charging him with dangerous driving/careless driving, you go for the cyclist @ careless cycling. Only in Zambia….!!!

  2. Mushota, what is your problem? You tell you do not know that It the hospital staff that admits and discharge a patient?

    The guy got what he deserves. This is a result of being a silly cadre. You do not need to blame the police. They are doing their work. Blame HH for promoting hatred and putting his supporter in the line of fire. He is turning them into suicide bombers and he does not care. Unfritunately it is backfiring on you guys. HH and UPND is now only displaying themselves as bad boys and uncivilised citizens who need to caged for the sake of the safety of law abiding citizens.

    • The law states that if you are threatened you can use any legal means at your disposal to repel that threat. Was the gun that was used to repel the said threat licenced? Why did the UpDn cadres block the road?
      IF CHAMA FAILED THREATENED THEN HE HAD A RIGHT TO USE ANY MEANS AT HIS DISPOSAL TO REPEL THE THREAT.

    • Mushaukwa was discharged and since police had not talked to him yet because he was in hospital, police picked him to the station so that he can officially make a statement. But because Zambian politics plays out like a satirical drama, some leaders of the opposition UPND claimed that he had disappeared. Most likely both sides the UPND and PF cadres were misbehaving leading to the shooting of this man/cadre.
      Zambian politics are full of propaganda such that whatever you hear or read must be questioned. Desperation and hooliganism abinds with these political nincompoops!

  8. Isn’t it so interesting that the guy who was shot at was arrested for threatening violence while the guy who shot him is walking free? I think the real reason he was arrested was because he talked. PF has really outdone themselves.

    • Do not pretend you do not know what happened. You star bandit was the the instigator. Chama was better at defending himself and your bandit got what was coming for his evil intentions. Yes, bandits at times end up being shot at. This does not erase their banditry.

      Never play with guns if you are an amateur, you will be killed. This is a lesson for you UPND. Violence bigots violence. You will not be tolerated this time. You will get a message that will make you understand not to be violent.

      Concentrate on promoting Pilato and let PF and EL concentrate on whacking your under 5 HH in 2016. You no clue what is coming in the next few months. You will be truly shown to be nothing but a tribal and losers’ party

  9. A government in real panic. Is it so difficult for ZP to just communicate to the interested parties about what they are doing other than doing it in the dark. What a country. In civilised countries police go on air to tell the nation about what they are doing on serious national cases so that there’s transparency to avoid harmful speculations.

      Do not lie to us about countries you have never even visited nor have any idea about the nature of their police work of judicial system. Let the useless chap pay for his deeds. This is the publicity HH wanted, unfortunately he is putting someone other than himself in trouble.

      If you try it, you will also suffer the same fate. “Do not try this with BOMA”

    • I feel its important to reply to yebo Nkosi and sponge Bob because they are debating as if Chama is above the law. Remember HH was attacked in Ndola and he did not shoot but escaped through the roof. Chama had other means to avoid the incidence but chose to kill. My appeal to all Zambians is lets respect life and treat it as sacred, the moment we start to kill and steal with no conscious the nation will descend in total confusion to the point of no return. We need to stop these criminals hiding behind a political party called PF.

  11. Bloggers, hold your fire indeed……………

    1. Mushaukwa was discharged and then arrested: What did the hospital tell the UPND team when they went to the hospital and found that Mushaukwa was not in the ward bed? Is Hon. Jack Mwiimbu so unreasonable as to issue a statement of lies?

    2. What is the truth regarding PF Secretary General Chama in all this? Did he or his driver actually shoot at Mushaukwa and wounded him or not?

    3. What do the Police say?

    You see people, the best weapon against rumour mongering and the attendant violence is transparency and truth. Not what is happening now. Are we so blood thirsty?

  12. So what is being done about Chama? The victim has accused him of doing the shooting yet the police have not even mentioned him in connection with the shooting. Why was the victim discharged in the dark of the night without his family or friends knowing? Why was he arrested without people knowing. PF in particular Chama, what goes around comes around. Nothing lasts for ever.

      Useless UPND. Imagine a criminal attacks HH and shoots in self defence, are going to arrest the attacker or the one who was defending himself. You the cadres, just like your leaders are truly under 5s.

    • Bwana, HH and his team visited the victim and it was on camera. HH later on, that’s when Jack Mwiimbu issued a statement that the patient they visited earlier has suspiciously disappeared. Of course for them to issue that the should have checked the hospital records and there was no record to show he has been discharged. Blogger, please lets learn to just reason a little bit. This is not asking for too much i guess

  14. @ Debo,

    Exactly my thoughts. Additionally, Ministry of health have a standard discharge procedure. Patients are discharged during the doctors’ round in the morning, never at midnight. The question is who discharged him at midnight since the doctor on call is for emergencies only and does not deal with noncritical cases let alone discharges? Why did the hospital authorities fear to reveal the patients where-about in the morning when people were asking? when someone is discharged, it is recorded in both the nurses’ record book (which is kept at the nurses desk/station for everyone to see) and in the patient’s file cabinet. Honestly, something is fishy here.
    Our prayer is for the police not hurt the already injured person. They should allow professionals to care for his wounds…

  18. What business has a whole Minister of Home Affairs to do with announcing the arrest of a person charged with a simple bailable offence like threatening violence in a political confrontation in Lstone to QFm radio in Lska, surely there are more serious matters the Hon can focus on. I thought this was simple police work! Where is the “hard working” Police Spokesperson, Charity? Or has the bwana minister reverted to his office orderly mould of old in ZCCM, where he was used to taking orders before Mikaele gave him a life line in PF?

What we’re trying to focus on is this not happening again and arrest the shooter and charge him. This is not a joke and when it’s you affected is when you will want justice. How can someone fire a weapon where there are by standers probably with children? A patient is discharged at midnight isn’t that bizarre? Then the police so happen to know he’s been discharged and arrest him for questioning? The police owes a duty of care to citizens and could have questioned him in the…
