FDD leader Edith Nawakwi has told the police to stop behaving like an armed wing of the PF and arrest PF Secretary General Davies Chama for shorting a UPND cadre, Mushaukwa Mushaukwa.

Ms. Nawakwi says it was surprising that the police were swift in arresting the victim of the shooting while Mr. Chama who pulled the allegedly pulled the trigger has been left scot-free. She says it is unbecoming for the police to be acting as the judge, the jury and the defenders of the PF.

“I call upon my sister, Stella Libongani to arrest the PF Secretary General Davies Chama. The problem we have is that the police are behaving like they are members of the Patriotic Front. It is nonsensical that someone who allegedly pulled the gun and shot someone is being protected by the police while the victim is arrested. It is clear that the police just like other state institutions have been infiltrated by PF cadres.

There is no professionalism or ethical conduct from the people who should uphold the rule of law and ensure that justice is not only a preserve of those in power but a fundamental right for all regardless of our political affiliation. I want to further warn Mr. Chama that violence begets violence. No civilized human being can resort to violence in a bid to win votes,” Ms. Nawakwi charged.


  1. Hear! Hear!! And well said. “No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.” – Theodore Roosevelt

    • The question is….. who will charge the police for un professional conduct, negligence, willfully ignoring to carry out legal duties, abuse of authority, deliberate incompetence, failure to perform or whatever is applicable?

  2. You are my sister but where ure u getting this hatred?its not Namwanga’s way.You did well in lasts year’s elections.

    • Ba Nawakwi please just shut your mouth if you do not know what transpired. Some times this habit of wanting to appear in the media even on issues you knew little will render you irrelevant. Those UPND thugs attacked Mr Chama they even blocked the road so what happened was in self defence . Why are you supporting violence instead of condemning the vice? The PF Secretary general is doing every thing possible to control the situation we do not want the Kabimba era. Hope you have head madam Post vuvuzela.

  3. As if they will hear. We are busy creating a vicious cycle of a ruling party supporters getting preferential treatment whilst the opposition are mistreated.

  4. If you are driving & hit a drunk who walked in front of your car you will be arrested & charged with ‘causing death by dangerous driving. Only the courts will free you when you convince them the drunk was actually in the wrong.
    The same here Boko Haram Chama should be arrested & go & explain in court what happened.
    Stella you can even pretend like you are following the law. Please.
    You are too young to allow politicians to ruin your future.
    Ask Emmanuel (he was in your class at lilayi). He is in Mazabuka.
    We still hold him in high esteem because he stood up to politicians to defend what is right in 1998.

    • UPND candidate would have still been arrested and charged for causing violence resulting in the loss of life..

  5. Davies Chama is the type of moron the president should desist from associating with. A nincompooppp of the highest order. How does a civilized person with a wife and children behave like a common thug. A picture states a thousand words, but his face and persona paint kaponialism to the max. A warthog has more discretion and dignity than the PF Secretary General. I would rather have the ever out spoken and highly confrontation Mumbi phiri as SG than Davies Chama. President Lungu is too humble to be associating with ilk like his Kambwili’s stunt double.

  6. What investigations can be carried out if some of the suspects just roam around manipulating the evidence. Its unfortunate if the police operate in a partisan way classifying certain people as untouchables. Davies Chama ought to be locked up as we talk to facilitate investigations if we are truly searching for real justice.
