Mr Bwalya after he was allegedly beaten up by UPND cadres at Sky FM studios

PF Deputy Spokesman Frank Bwalya was on Friday afternoon attacked by suspected UPND cadres at Sky FM Radio in Monze.
He was attacked by three cadres led by a man only known as Lawrence.

Mr Bwalya said in an interview that Lawrence with other two cadres beat him up badly leaving him in pains.

“I had gone to Sky FM radio to do an interview, after that three individuals approached me and beat me up. They have beaten me so badly as if I am a common criminal. It is a party that the UPND thinks it can rule by creating anarchy. I am here at the Police and I am laying charges, I just hope that the culprits are arrested,” Mr Bwalya said.

The incident happened around 16:20 Hours.

On Wednesday, Mr Bwalya issued a statement supporting some PF members who were planning to attack some Journalists at Radio Mano in Kasama for allegedly providing pro-opposition coverage.

    • Frank is a liar. He started by telling lies that UPND were planning to disrupt public days commemorations such as labour day. The fact is Frank has been planning these fake attacks.

    • The blows he received are manufactured. Where are the bweengwa kidnappers mwebantu to date better still where are the kidnap victims who kidnapped themselves. He goes to Monze to make the Tongas look bad.

    • You want to believe he was all by himself without any PF without any PF thugs accompanying when he knows not too long ago it was alleged that there was violence in Bweengwa? I really doubt his story.

    • Violence should be condemned with no exceptions even if its a moron like Bwalya at the end of that beating..we slowly turning into Uganda where leaders are man-handled like thugs. The caliber of leaders we have is a disgrace both in opposition and ruling party; another example is UPND parading their injured cadres at a rally imagine what effect it has on the foot-soldier..he will simply go out looking revenge and blood.

    • HH and UPND are political hooligans and are going no where. Kaunda was forced to introduce One Party State because of hooliganism by Nkumbula/Mainza Chona’s supporters and now HH has taken us back to those dark days of violence, may his soul rest eternal turmoil….HH is a satanist who will never anything politically and let him RIP call August 2016

    • It is a LIE, the chap was drinking Jamieson, probably finished 2 cartons – he was seen falling all over the place, then he dreams that 3 guys beat him – who doesn’t know that: “Uwuma nafiyala, omina limo!!” So he wouldn’t be yapping as much if he was actually beaten!!

      Vote wisely 11/8/2016!! Vote UPND!!

  1. No sympathy really for this man. Had he condemned the attacks on Mano Radio, I would have sympathised with him. Now, how does it feel to move in fear? He even mocked the UPND cadres who were attacked on Youth Day. The way you’re feeling now is exactly how Mano journalists and Youth Day victims are feeling. As a leader, you must condemn EVERY form of violence

    • I too have no sympathy for Frank its good he has had his dose too! I hope the police drag their feet on following up on the case as many other pending ones for radio stations in Chipata and Kasama, beating and urinating on journalists in Eastern province and on youth day, PF instigated violence that led to undressing of a mother of one in Lusaka and many more! How does it feel Frank Bwalya to be beaten and you hear that one has praised and not admonished those that gave you a few slaps embarrassing you in public? Its your own making and I have no iota of sympathy for you as the seminary seems failed to make you a better person to help transform politicians conduct.

    • As much as we condemn violence this man should learn something from this experience and stand to give testimony so as to teach against violence, I’m sure he has remembered the words he said about the journalists at Radio Mono. Violence is bad and should be condemned by every leader

  3. Now you see ba Bwalya what it means to be beaten. its painful man. i know since you come from the ruling party, this guy will be arrested (rightly so) but Kennedy Kamba that iidioot who drives an ABC Ford Ranger is still walking about free despite him instructing (in full view of the police) for women to be stripped naked and hacking others. i am very reluctant to say i am sorry for being beaten, i think you’re part of the problem sir. in as much as i think you don’t deserve to be beaten no matter how different or annoying you are

    • Oh come off it Mr Frank Bwalya.

      Has anyone ever seen Frank Bwalya walking alone to any place since he became the spokesperson of the PF.
      How is it possible that all of sudden and in Southern Province of all places where he and his party claim the people are savages he decides to leave his car and walk to Sky FM. Does sky FM not have a parking area for their guests.
      And to cap it off there is no collaboration of his story. When he was baptized with the opaque stuff in Kitwe he was only to happy to post pictures of himself drenched, where are the pics now Father Bwalya? As the saying goes “Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it.

  9. If these are views are representative of UPND, there is really no point in voting for this party in the August 2016 elections if we want peace and harmony in this country. I foresee anarchy and instability if UPND ascends to power. Those in the opposition will perish if the UPND becomes the ruling party. Mark my words.

  10. I am ashamed to hear Zambians speak in this way, supporting thuggery in politics. It’s up to Lungu to get tougher and stop listening to these Westerners who won’t let us fix thus problem. As far as I am concerned Emegency rule is needed pronto to stop things getting worse. We really can use the money to resolve our immediate problems imagine waiting until September? It’s too distress and nerve racking observing these things.

    • Patriot,
      State of emergency over claims by FB which are the as credible as the bweengwa kidnapping.???. This is now desperation friend, state of emergency over lies.
      Even EL knows any postponement of August date of our emancipation from the chains of dept and corruption and bad governance will set the country on fire.

    • thats a sad reaction, just because a few who have access to the net react in a way which is not favourable to you, you have made this decision. I believe your decision was not made today, making a decision because of a few bloggers is unheard of

  14. The sole purpose of his trip to monze was to come up with this, this the only reason why most pf leaders visit the south to create confusion, i don’t see any hammered ***** he looks like he was roughed by prostitutes after failing to pay for a service, only his shirt looks a bit roughed, mr bwalya you forgot to apply some tomato sauce, it would have looked not very fake.

    • Agreed at bare minimum he should have had a torn shirt as I would have expected him to defend himself or try to escape from the beatings …now I see all his buttons are intact and I am pretty sure he would have liked to show some swelling or bruising on the face or any part of the body …Ba Bwalya muli Ba bufi

  18. Here are my thoughts:
    1. How does he know its UPND cadres,
    2. where they dressed in UPND regalia, were they carryng cards, and isn’t there a possibility of impersonation?
    3. Why and how did Sky FM management allow strangers in the studio?
    4. what happened to security measures by the station where z even presence of police?
    5. Has Sky FM management issued a statement confirming that?
    6. Is it really possible that strangers can walk in and ambush someone in the studio like that one i know has proper security measures from objects to human beings, restricting entry?
    7. Don’t u think this could be propaganda in view of UPND members and journalists who were hacked in Kanyama today?
    8. isn’t this an effort to cover up PF’s closure of radio mano in Kasama?

    “…Badly beaten” but…

  19. Attention seeking Bwalya has the guts to strategically position himself and cunningly stagemanage fascinating acts to satisfy his ego after he made similar verbal allegations on the same. He is too cunning to be taken seriously.

  20. Zambians are very intelligent people and I can assure you that they can’t let thugs to be in charge of national affairs. Hadolf Hitler (HH) and Fat Albert (GBM) will never be voted into office because they are thieves, bitter and thugs.
    If indeed they think they are popular, why resort to violence? Come 11 Augudt , President Lungu is getting a fresh mandate as President of Zambia. Never underrate Zambians imwe ba UPND.

  23. we shall beat them for you BaBwalya in the boom. What Tongas need to know is that we know them better than they know us and they need other tribes more than other tribes need them. Zambians cant we find a better replacement than HH? believe me by 2021 someone is coming to replace Lungu. Why should other tribes not be allowed in southern province when UPND is allowed in other provinces?

  25. Tayali(2016) HH BLESSES VIOLENCE – IT IS LIKE HEROISM
    As a Christian, one does not look at justifying oneself of wrongdoing especially violence. HH never takes responsibility of the violence perpetrated by his cadres, rather he justifies evil act by accusing others especially PF.
    I am not justifying the violence of PF, they are equally guilty and they should take responsibility as well.
    However, HH treats the perpetrators of violence in his party as heroes and heroines. And those poor citizens who get beaten by his cadres are like infidels who deserve the wrath of violence for not supporting him. I am a victim of HH’s cadres’ violence and justified it.
    For those among his cadres who get hurt in the battle or arrested, HH treats them like martyrs.

  28. Going to Church is not and is not even desperation. We have seen our President Lungu in different churches will u say it was a desperate move? This articale is biased, if any anything it is even better to go to church for the sake of promoting peace and harmony. Please can you get mature out of this form of reporting.
