I signed bail for a UPND cadre because he is a school boy and a relative-Kazabu

Headlines I signed bail for a UPND cadre because he is a school...

Patriotic Front (PF) Nkana Member of Parliament Luxon Kazabu has said that he has not done anything harmful to the ruling party adding that his loyalty remains with the PF.

Commenting on allegations that he has lodged bail for a UPND cadre, Mr. Kazabu said that he signed for Mate Situla because he is a school boy who is a close relative.

Yesterday Mr Kazabu joined the United Party for National Development (UPND) in bailing out its cadres who were arrested along with Chongwe Member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo for conducting an illegal political procession.

The 17 UPND cadres were arrested by police last week along with Chongwe MP Sylvia Masebo after conducting an illegal procession along Independence Avenue soon after Ms Masebo appeared at the Magistrate court on charges of abuse of authority of office.

The cadres were each given K5000 bail with two working sureties, and several MPs including UPND’s Kaoma Central MP Carlos Antonio, Villie Lombanya of Solwezi East and their Sesheke counterpart Sianga Siyauya.

Mr Kazabu has received condemnation for his role from PF senior leaders.

PF secretary general Davis Chama said Mr Kazabu had exposed himself for who he truly was by helping the UPND cadres be released from police custody by joining the UPND MPs in signing bonds for the suspects.

Mr Chama has challenged Mr Kazabu to openly declare his loyalty to the opposition political party instead of using the name of PF to conduct political activities for the UPND.

“This is actually surprising, but again it is revealing his true colours and his allegiance to the opposition party. If he (Kazabu) can go to sign bail for the law breaking UPND cadres, he is just trying to expose himself for who he truly is. Let him go,” Mr Chama said.

And PF National Youth Chairman Chishimba Kambwili has called on PF Nkana Member of Parliament Luxon Kazabu to resign if allegations by media reports that he signed a police bond for a UPND cadre are correct.

Mr. Kambwili said that the allegations are an insult to the ruling party.

He said that Mr. Kazabu joined the PF shortly before elections in 2011 adding that it is possible for him to turn against the ruling party.

  1. Forget Chama! His brain is programmed in such a way that the reasoning comes after he has said something. Hon. Kazabu what you did is what everyone can do. Even Edgar Lungu would do the same: save a relative even if that relative belongs to Rainbow or MMD. So Hon. don’t even waste your time and energy explaining to Chama! Records show us that he is not capable of comprehending the obvious!

    • Villie Lombanya is a selfish man who has jeopardized his son’s diplomatic career by joining the opposition. He is a filthy, traitor.

    • @Nostradamus
      today i believe you whole heartedly!!! you told me ,,, i remember very well that day over ka beer,, that time when Field Ruwe was our friend,,,,,,! you told me that not all PF MPs are blood sucking vampires,,, today i raise my hand …,, i wil call Field Ruwe so that we can have our own `reconcilliation and drinking`on the 18th,,, good signs are appearing in PF

    • Chama and Kambwili should have had balls to ask Hon Kazabu before going to the press. Surely with modern tech., just a phone call could have been enough for answers.

    • @ Nubian Princess
      1. “Traitor”? As a supporter of party which has been and it is still at forefront of encouraging “Traitors” you should be last person to assign such name to others;
      2. Regarding the issue of “jeopardized his son’s diplomatic career”, if true, it is sad development where performance of young and honest professional can be hindered due to his father political affiliation and
      3. Your party cannot talk about betrayal when it has betrayed aspiration for better life of Millions of Zambians.

    • Nubian Princess,
      That’s one of the weirdest statements I have heard. Are you saying that nobody should join the opposition or should they only do that if none of their close relatives have GRZ jobs? The blame should be on whoever actually terminated Villie Lombanya’s son’s contract. Yaba!

  2. Atase, so our relatives in the ruling PF can not come to our aid when we have problems that can also affect family?? Id10ts, I can never join this party

  3. Firstly the so called cadres are inncent till proven guilty.Secondly your sitting president is talking about reconciliation.Where does this plce you Mr Chama?But anyway as Zambians we should be happy let Lungu continue with these empty heads he is giving us a very realistic opportuy to to get rid of them and him.nit

  4. I now see that PF leadership have no human hearts, feelings, and/or thoughts of love because all they are interested in is attack everybody and anything they perceive to be against them. They can even argue they do not have shadows while they are standing under the sunlight. Shameful our country is governed by such low caliber leaders.

  5. There you have it, now Chama wants to start breaking families because of political affiliation. It is a pity that we ae one people yet others consider us as criminals or enemies just because we have different political ambitions and affiliation. Chama uletekanya please, calm down and respect other people.

  6. so what is october 18 ,reconcialation and prayer day if a citizen bails out his close relative and pf condemns him,these are serious questions gen.miyanda raised.pf pronouncements and actions are in opposite direction,and pf hope to harmonise the call for unity.who bailed andrew Banda whn he was jailed,it was RB thru his lawyer sikota but Andrew is upnd and RB is mmd/pf

  7. The bail conditions are very strict especially those facing cases of political nature. They say a working surety must be a senior government official. You can rot in police cells because that relative of yours who is a Director in govt department can’t come to your rescue for fear of losing their job. Ask Richard Sakala and Chipenzi when Sata locked them up and how they sweated when the court refused to accept the sureties from private sector. It had to take MPs like Kaingu and Levy Ngoma to bail them out. So, bravo Mr Kazabu

  8. My wife is die hard PF and am a humble MMD. We deep each other heavily every night but surely cant I sign a bond for her when she gets-in especially on flimsy charges like this one? These guys have just demonstrated the following:
    1. They are worse than tribalists from whichever planet you can think of
    2. The bailing out of people is a legal process that they should respect which every person has the right to(hope they wont be so stupid to scrap it out of the books of law now that parliament has resumed!)
    3. The reconciliations, forgiveness etc that is currently being championed by Team Kambwili is a mere smoke screen, especially where big kambwili is trying to cast away Meembe’s demons to accelerate the forgiveness process

    • @ Kelvin

      Great!!!
      When are you going to fire that bunch of Ministers and Deputy Ministers which have betrayed electorate and theirs own Party for 30 pieces of silver?

  9. AND YET THEY BUSY PREACHING RECONCILIATION. CK, ITS TIME TO SHOW LEADERSHIP INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING WHATEVER FITS YOUR BOSSES. NO WONDER I CAN NOT TRUST PF ANY MORE. BA SATA, WE MISS YOU SIR, MYSRIP.

    • President Lungu and vice President Wina are great leaders. It is these no constituency having members, Mumbi and Chama that are a nuisance. Kambwili as well. If President Lungu could relieve Chama of his post, all shall be well.

      Viva President Nawakwi.

  10. Infact this Kazabu traitor should have informed the party leadership that he has a useless upnd relative who has broken the law together with his fellow upnd minions! Simple!
    By the way PF has taken an early lead in both by elections in Lubansenshi and N/Western Province!

  11. Shocking! If the country starts practising the hatred Chama exhibits, then we are not far from experiencing the division of the country into warring parties.

  12. AND YET THEY BUSY PREACHING RECONCILIATION. CK, ITS TIME TO SHOW LEADERSHIP INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING WHATEVER FITS YOUR BOSSES. NO WONDER I CAN NOT TRUST PF ANY MORE. BA SATA, WE MISS YOU SIR, MYSRIP.

  13. Why is the VP who is believed to be an aunt to Fred Mmembe be fired then? If she truly is an aunt she’d sell the relationship for party? Why even would Chama mix law with party issues and by extension family? Simple thinking. It is then good for PF to dine with RB because Andrew is in opposition! ECL should have addressed reconciliation within his party before venturing to reach out to others as his own party members make it a futile exercise.

  14. So UNIP never died! This is so disgusting it is not even funny. Why do you want people to account for their private actions just because there is a party label involved? Why should Kazabu even explain to you who and for what he is bailing from custody? Do we cease to be human beings when we join political parties? This is extra-disgusting and this mindset in politics will only take our country backwards to the caves of medieval behavior! ST.UPID!

  15. Comment: theres purely nothing wrong to sign bail fo members of oposition but because he is holding an influential position in th ruling party he was sapoz to inform& consult his bosses and then get cleared so that unnecesary controversies & suspicions are avoided , otherwise any other political organization was going to display anger& dismay the way chama and kambwili are doing

    • As simple as that! Iam just wondering what the so called school boy was doing amongst upnd minions instead of being at school which have reopened! Kazabu’s story stinks of upnd excreta!

    • @zenzo. Chama & Kambwili just needed to call Kazabu before running to the press! The same way Kambwili was supposed to have ‘talked’ to Glencore before saying the things he did on Sunday Interview. As things now stand, Kambwili should apologise to the miners in Luanshya & Mopani because he promised they would not lose their jobs.

  16. Chama is an inhuman brute with the fortune of supporting a ruling party. He is Stone age man thrown into the future. He can’t adapt. He wants everything and everyone to adapt to him

  17. PF will win lubasenshi while UPND takes solwezi west. This just goes to show how divided this country is. You wonder why northerners and easterners are this tribal. We should just divide this country.

    • Westerners and Easterners are not Tribal. They most humble and loving Zambians you can find. Only three people groups ” tribes ” out of the 73 in Zambia have issues.

      Ki musihali.

      Viva President Nawakwi.

  18. Useless UPND cadress,no wonder u ve been in opposition longer than due nd u will remain there for eternity.Honestly,how can u encourage lawlessness nd violence?What sort of a government re u going to ve in the unlikely event that u get power?Stupid KACHEMAS!!LOSERS!!!!

  19. They even showed their tribalism to a white man Guy Scot. I mean what is there to vote for PF. Here is the list;
    1. Load shedding
    2. Dead kwacha
    3. Job losses in the mines
    4. High cost of living
    5. Political violence
    6. No new constitution
    7. Nepotism in public service recruitment
    8. Corruption
    9. Excessive borrowing
    10. Blotted cabinet
    11. Inconsistency in policies

    • Guy Scott was no saint, he had all their traits and worst. He wrestled the presidency from Lungu illegally. We would have been better off now had the quagmire of nonsense of succession disputes not happened before President Sata’s Death.

      Viva president Nawakwi.

  20. we are sick and tired of listening to this animals , id-iots , every day it is Chama , Kambwili . this are the argy faced monsters . the way they look is the way their hearts are . thats why i can not join PF , there is no orderly in doing things , any one who has some thing to say can go to the press with out problems . Chama and Kambwili you have destroyed PF . God is watching

  21. Read carefully what Chama is saying.Hon Kazabu is a PF member he should have declared interest in the first instance and by bailing a suspected trouble maker from the opposition is a serious matter to any organisation.You reap what you sow.This should a lesson to learn not to be used by

    • @ NO ROOM FOR THE ENEMIES OF THE sTATE

      Zambia is DEMOCRATIC society and PF is NOT “sTATE” but merely party in Government.
      Indeed, there is no place in Zambian society for TRAITORS and ENEMIES of CONSTITUTION

  22. Sata was right when he said that most of his MPs are useless. all they care is about their pockets than human life. why should an MP be an enemy to his relative?

  23. Ba Kazabu – the main argument should be that he is a relative. UPND has a lot of money – they cannot fail to bail out their members. Your relative participated in an illegal procession (instead of going to school) – there are consequences. Gauge your actions carefully.

  24. Be careful about that carrot dangling from millionaire HH Ba Kazabu, you may just end up losing everything. It is not difficult to foresee outcome of ones actions unless they are done deliberately. Apologies to your Party PF if at all you had no intent to offend but enjoy the martyrdom of politics if you feel this is the way to go. Good Luck

  25. What do you expect from tongas? Even if they hold senior positions in both government and the party, when it comes to voting, they will vote for Ichilema ( their own). I don’t know why HE ECL has been wasting time with these good for nothing mother far car zee. They are ungrateful

  26. YOU GUYS INSULTING CHAMA AND SUPPORTING KAZABU DONT KNO WAT KIND OF OPPORTUNIST KAZABU Z.AM UPND MYSELF AND CAMPAIGNED FOR HH HERE IN KITWE.KAZABU IS AN OPPORTUNIST HU IS KNON 4 JUMPING INTO A PARTY HE BELEIVES WILL FORM GOVERMENT.IN 2011 AFTER THE IMFAMOUS THIRD TERM,AS MMD DISTRICT CHAIRMAN FOR KITWE, HE APPLIED TO STAND ON UPND TICKET IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE AND ONLY WITHDREW AFTER SUFFERING A STRANGE ILLNESS.HE JOINED FDD.IN 2006 HE APPLIED TO STAND ON FDD/UPND ALLIANCE .HH REFUSED TO ADOPT HIM FOR NKANA CONSTITUENCY AND INSTEAD PICKED HIS FRIEND PATRICK CHISANGA,FORCING KAZABU TO QUIT POLITICS.IN 2010 HE REJOINED UPND,BUT AFTER REALISING THAT PF WAS LIKELY TO FORM GOVERMENT,HE JOINED PF IN 2011 JUST BEFORE THE ELECTIONS AND WAS ADOPTED FOR THE NKANA SEAT,AFTER PLEADING WITH SATA…

  27. PF has lost direction because of hatrate. SATA did not allowed Chishimba Kambwili,Mumbi Phiri, Chama Davies and Fr Bwalya to talk the way they are talking.
    Kuya bebele ba PF

  28. I have always emphasised the point that we are one people. Can you imagine in a home where the wife is from a different party than the husband and in an incident where the wife is entangled, what do you do as the husband? It is the same situation KAZABU has found himself in. You may not just watch as a matter of civility, while your wife is being persecuted. I feel and think that CHAMA has NO HUMAL FEELING. You just have to understand some of these things, although it indeed requires a 6th sense to come to terms with such resolutions.

  29. kazabu is UPND so let him jst go,u mean there no other relatives who cud have bailed his relative rather than him to do ,from the way he has behavioved let him jst leave us in PF and he shud go back to UPND together with WILBUR SIMUSA since there all came from UPND and there allegencyis for that tonga party

  30. kazabu is UPND so let him jst go,u mean there no other relatives who cud have bailed his relative rather than him to do ,from the way he has behavioved let him jst leave us in PF and he shud go back to UPND together with WILBUR SIMUSA since there all came from UPND and there allegencyis for that tonga party,let there hynaes gooo forever

  31. Hon. Kazabu is right and has done nothing wrong.Chama and Kambwili tell us is it right to share a political platform with RB who has retired from active politics but practises partisan politics.Grow-up gentlemen.

  32. but hon kazabu your relative was putting the life of state house at risk and are there no enough upnd to do that just get out and join upnd then you will be taught a lesson.
    you are cheating because masebo coxed you in parliament over the same signatures and some of your friends refused.

  33. The I.d.o.t.s are busy asking the opposition to join them in sugar coated fake reconciliation yet they are busy calling names to their own member for doing exactly what they are asking for. And an average s.t.u.p.I.d Zambian thinks this reconciliation prayers have been called in good faith rather than politics. Atleast not all our people are stupid some still can see this.

  34. Foools….a cadre can be your child, uncle or any close relative. Luxson is a good man not the two mentioned clowns, kabwili and chama.
