PF DEMANDS A FULL REPORT AND ACTION ON THE MAZABUKA VIOLENT ATTACKS AGAINST DANDY CRAZY AKA WESLEY CHIBAMBO’S LIFE AT NATASHA NITE CLUB, MAZABUKA, BY UPND CADRES– SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE

Lusaka, Zambia, 16th November 2015 – Patriotic Front (PF) is demanding an explanation from the Inspector General of Police Madam Stella Libongani through her Southern Province Police Command regarding the circumstances that led to Zambian Singer Dandy Crazy aka Wesley Chibambo being attacked in the full view of Police Officers at Natasha Nite Club in Mazabuka where he was scheduled to perform. The attack in full view of the Police was orchestrated by well-known United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres clad in their Political party regalia.

Among the sharp objects used was a knife that missed Dandy’s body after he dodged it and ended up tearing his vest. This is a clear attempt on human life and the intention is clear for all to see. We also do not need to present the Zambia Police a rocket scientist to prove that Dandy Crazy was attacked by UPND cadres in full view of the Police because of his political affiliation.

A fortnight ago, another artist Macky II aka Mulaza Kaira was almost attacked under similar circumstances in Mazabuka. As PF, we shall not sit back and watch our members and sympathisers being attacked in full view of the Police and pretend that it is business as usual. We demand that justice must not just be done, it must be seen to be done in these matters.

Further, we wish to warn of the repercussions of these violent attacks because an eye for an eye makes the world go blind. Even under very provocative circumstances, the PF on the Copperbelt Province have never attacked artists such as Pilato.

This is because we as PF are civilized enough to understand Pilato’s entitlement to express himself even under undesired and highly provocative circumstances. No single member of PF has ever and will ever attempt to attack any artist opposed to the PF and its leadership.

On this score, we are calling on the UPND leader Mr. Hakainde Hichilema to condemn these violent attacks and appeal to his support base in Southern Province to restrain themselves by abandoning the Mapatizya violent formula.

The deafening silence by the UPND leadership on a matter that occurred in Mazabuka with their full knowledge is totally unacceptable and must be condemned with the deserved contempt.

In conclusion, PF assures the nation that it shall adhere to His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s directive for non-violence, unity and peace-building as we interface political opponents. President Lungu has guided the Party membership across the country that democracy is about divergent views and freedoms of expression and this diversity must ever be used to hurt or harm one another. We demand the same from other political players in the country. President Lungu personifies the motto “E pluribus unum” which is translated as “Out of many, One”.

    • PF you are completely out of ideas now, just fix the vest and the economy. It is the economy which your bad decisions which needs the attention for it is not missing any one, unlike the knife, but affecting everyone (except people like Sunday Chanda).

    • Wow! Very desperate statement there. So the PF now has taken over the role of Zambia Association of Musicians, in the middle of economic chaos, one would expect their leadership to talk about what they’re doing to address these issues.

    • Pangas, guns and knifes have all been used before by Cadres from the other side. Sunday,… any sympathies to the cadre shot by your Administer General?

    • Mapatizya formula is an anti rigging defence mechanism invented in Mapatizya. Then Dandy Crazy was trying to rig an election for him to be subjected to Mapatizya Formula mechanism.

    • Well Sunday has just confirmed that Dandy was actually send to perform in Mazabuka as a PF cadre to drum up support for PF and to disparage UPND through his songs. Definitely UPND club goers would not just sit by a watch some one insulting their party and its leaders while singing praise songs in support of a bunch of thieves ;PF are.

      Sunday should be fair in his comments about about such issues. Not long ago, Pilato sung a satirical song entitled Alungu anabwela and he was arrested and prosecuted for that. PF thugs almost attacked him if it was not for the UPND and ordinary citizens who stood up for him. Sunday in his usual stupidity and myopic view he instead issued remarks condemning PILATO.

  2. Just wondering which media the opposition leader should condemn these actions. I would have thought it was policy never to allow the opposition on any air waves.

  3. That knife should not have missed its target…this is the fellow who said he would rather be a chicken and not a Tonga. Similarly ci Mark II is another dunderhead even though I supported him pa big brother but did not know that he was a fool. Has Pilato insulted any tribe??

    • So because he insulted Tongas, he should be beaten; because he supports a different party, he should be beaten; because he went in his private capacity, he should be beaten? Is that the way we resolve differences in Zambia now? We insult and beat each other, there is no room for reasoning anymore???

  5. CHANDA I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT WHERE THERE IS HH EXPECT AND HIS HOOLIGANS EXPECT VIOLENCE. THIS IS THE SAME WITH GBM WHEN HE GOES TO KASAMA WE RECEIVE REPORTS OF VIOLENCE COZ THIS IS THE NATURE OF THE TWO LOSERS.

    ASK THE WIFE FOR GBM HOW MANY TIMES SHE HAS BEEN ASSAULTED BY GBM ASK MUTINTA HOW MANY TIMES SHE HAS BEEN ABUSED BY HH WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE RICH THROUGH THEFT VIOLENCE AND INTIMIDATION OF COURSE.
    MAPATIZYA FORMULA IS A FORMULA WHERE UPND CADRES ARE DIRECED TO BEAT ANY MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITION MMD MEMBERS WERE ALSO BEATEN IN MAPATIZYA IN CASE WE HAVE FORGOTTEN.

    TO ALL PEACE LOVING ZAMBIANS DO NOT SUPPORT HH AND GBM THEY ARE ANIMALS WHICH NEED TO BE CAGED.

  6. Why is this being portrayed as a politically driven attack???
    This self-centred delusional bigotry is what has dug the entire nation into a hole.

    This “victim” insulted an ethnic grouping, and was chased from two other southern towns. For the sake of his own safety, and the PF’s pathetic morals, I think it best he moves to Kasama.

    I hear D Chama’s coming also???
    Hope he can dodge knives also.

    • You chaps have chicken brains, maybe thats even a complement. How can a whole tribe rise against one person? He might be an ***** but you are a bigger collective ***** to respond to his neanderthal ways in similar fashion. Next you will be holding chuundu. If you ignore him he will have no platform. Maybe he was right after all.

  7. Munene how many times has HH been attacked by the police. The latest was in Kafue last week. Condemn primitive behaviour on all sides but more so when it’s done by the state using our security agencies. Now they are even preparing for trouble by telling him you can’t go to kopala.

  8. Job well done lads! PF you have nothing to do, even becoming Dandy’s spokesperson sure. Everyone knows Dandy wasnt beaten because of his political affiliation but because he insulted the whole tribe.

    I hope to hear from this side when Davies Chama visits.

  11. i condemn violence to anyone by anyone. however you also the PF have a defeaning silence on the failure by the police to give the opposition political space to meet their members and potential members,why do you also not need a rocket scientist to see that you are doing the same things that you endured under RB’s MMD whom you have gone to bed with today – may be he is the one who is teaching you those bad manners. so to my brothers in Mazabuka, i appeal to you, please please this chap insulted you but any person who fails to reason like he did, doesnt deserve an equal measure of reasoning. you are above this chirambo guy. he is entitled to his own opinion in as far as God choosing what tribe you must be born from. he thinks one tribe is more intelligent than others. so let him be one day…

  12. So the Zambian Police Chief can receive instructions even from kaponyas now? If it is true that this crazy Dandy or whatever his name is insulted the Tongas then the PF is doing a very bad job by supporting him. He should be condemned for doing that. You do not go to Southern Province and insult Tongas. It is dangerous. This crazy son of a… is lucky that he did not return to Lusaka as cargo. This is the problem with these uneducated Zambian musicians – they have no sense.

  13. I am very disappointed that most of you commentators don’t realize that a perpetuation of such violence is wrong. Two musicians were attacked, that is wrong no matter which party they support. As human beings who value life, this act should be condemned. You seriously can’t start justifying such violent acts. Do you think when UPND gets in power, such violence will stop????? You need to think beyond your party biases and realize that violence will only beget violence, even if UPND gets in power.

    • nobody in condoning the violence, read the threads carefully. What they are condemning is that this so called politician see’s it fit to make it political issue. There are bigger problems in the country for national leadership to be so concerned with a bar fight. He should trust in the police and get on with his job. PF was is and is showing signs of always being a pathetic party with the lousiest leadership.

  15. ‘Even under very provocative circumstances, the PF on the Copperbelt Province have never attacked artists such as Pilato’.

  16. CB IS NO LONGER PF’S STRONGHOLD. THAT IS JUST SELF DELUSION. PF HAS LOST IT. FORGET IT. WHEN YOU COMPARE PILATO TO DANDY YOU WILL FIND THAT PILATO IS SAYING THE TRUTH WHILE DANDY WAS INSULTING ONE TRIBE. WE WERE ALL SUPPORTING PF BUT NOT ANYMORE. AM KITWE BASED AND VERY ANNOYED WITH CHAGWA. HE HAS KILLED OUR PF. HOW CAN HE COOPT THOSE VERY CHARACTERS THAT WE REJECTED IN MMD, CHARACTERS LIKE DORA AND STINKING RB. CHAGWA THINKS THAT WE ARE FOOLS, NOT ANYMORE. HE SHOULD GO TO HELL.

    • Liar you are, thats what you always do- accusing others of insulting your tribe- Tonga. Dandy did not insult Tongas. You attacked him coz he supports PF. Dull creatures you are. Shaaa.

  17. …the qstn is…why should PF take the mantle in this case….??…its definitely inappropriate…it could have made sense if this demand came from the musician association or the govt because govt is there to protect every citizen…..
    …personally I would demand Dandy to be locked up and charged for behaving in a manner likely to manifest into breach of peace….what Dandy recently ranted about southerners is still very much fresh in their minds….therefore his trip was a provocative act…I don’t expect PF Secretary General Chama to hold any public meeting in chief Mwachingwala or Hamaundu chiefdom any time soon…

  18. So Zambians did not know that from that part of the world violence, insults, and intolerance are second nature? When they go to other provinces they pretend to be civilised, or maybe they realise that they do not have the numbers, or they simply want the votes by deceit. But to know their violent nature, just go and mess up a little in their region and you will know them for real, as Dandy Crazy discovered. Even their leaders know them well, I will not mention names in case they waylay me at Mazabuka when I go there tomorrow. I wonder whether we are safe as a country in the event that they won 2016, God help us!

  20. Chiwamila galu ka. PF has been attacking supporters from opposition political parties particularly UPND for merely wearing party regalia, with the recent incident being near intercontinental hotel when the PF cadres on their way to see off their President stopped their truck just to lynch an innocent citizen expressing his democratic right. If anything I don’t think it’s UPND guys who roughed up Dandy. It’s the Tonga people he insulted. Dandy invited the wrath of the people of Southern province when in his warped reasoning he said “I would rather be a chicken than be a Tonga”. People advised him to apologise and mend fences but he has arrogantly refused to do so. Now he expects people of Southern province to forget the insult and dance to his PF songs?

  21. so the shiwangandu, kitwe attacks and most recently the kafue one by police were not enough to alert people to take a revenge. who does dandy thinks he is to provoke the stronghold of opposition let him perform somewhere else where they will accept him. Tongas have been peaceful but its the bembas and the same musicians who have provoked the situation. so the promoters please call people who are peaceful those have killed their own business by being partisan. mwekoza amwizyo okoshulila bvishupu kuyakene

  22. Surely Sunday can you call the entire Tonga populace as Chickens? Your day are numbered on one hand. The normal procedure for my man Dandy is to become decent and stop smoking Dobo and make sure his vision is clear to see a Chicken and a human being…….Just a foolish boy to say the least.

  23. The justice meted out on Dandy Crazy and Macky2 is due to long pent up fury against the duo for insulting an entire tribe. Every sane person knows that this is a no go area, you don’t do that and then go to the same area to perform. People will fiercely defend the honor of their tribe which is sacred. What was this guy thinking about when he said chickens were better than Tongas? And his guardians the PF kept quiet that time, now they want to come to his aid pretending that this was political violence? In other regions of this world, there would have been a fatwa on Dandy’s head. You don’t muck around with tribe bwana. Respect others and they will equally respect you.

  24. The justice meted out on Dandy Krazy was due to long pent up fury due to the musician’s nasty comments on the Tonga tribe. It looked like it was now becoming fashionable for any PF zealot to insult Tongas in any manner they felt like. Every sane person knows that you don’t tamper with tribe in the manner Dandy did and expect to get away from it all. How do you say a chicken is better than a Tonga surely? This guy last year attempted to go to Choma to perform when the insult was still fresh and the police told him, ‘don’t!’ That time he would have been hurt real bad. Dandy should consider himself lucky because in other regions of this world, a fatwa would have been called over his head. Remember Salmon Rushdie?
