Police is Southern Province say three suspects wanted in connection with the assault on PF deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya have handed themselves to police.

Southern Province Police Commissioner Godwin Phiri has told ZNBC news that the suspects handed themselves to police around 17:30 hours in Monze on Monday.

Last week, Suspected United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres attacked and injured Patriotic Front (PF) deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya.

Mr Bwalya was attacked at Sky FM in Monze, where he had gone to give an interview following an invitation by the radio station.

He sustained head and chest injuries and was rushed to Monze District Hospital, where he received medical attention.

“I was on a radio programme on Chikuni FM with one of the UPND members when we got a call from Sky FM that wanted me to give them an interview.
“By the time we got to Sky FM, the UPND member that I was with on the programme alerted three of his colleagues, who confronted me and started throwing punches until they dragged me to the ground, where they continued to kick me in the head and stomach,” he said.

Mr Bwalya said the three accused him of insulting their party president, Hakainde Hichilema, while on the radio programme.

“We were talking about no violence on the programme but they said I insulted their party president,” he said.

    • UPND cadres are Jokers. Each time their party is involved in violence, they say it is staged, fake, or condemn PF. You can tell from such behavior that UPND is not ready to rule this country. They would rather protect the interest of fellow individual Tonga Cadres at the expense of peace. This speaks mountains about what people say about Tongas.They are selfish with no regard for other tribes. As long as their tribes men are comfortable everyone else does not deserve anything good. We have seen this kind of behaviour even in work places. even when one of them dies, they will make sure he/she buried in their village, why not at Leopards hill? It is the same Zambian land. Imagine going to the extent of even segregating the dead. Zambians be carefully, you are dealing with a very sensitive…

    • Zambians be carefully, you are dealing with a very sensitive and complicated issue here regarding presidency. In my view I suggest we give our brothers time to become civilized and learn to respect other tribes in Zambia before giving them the mantle. we love them but …….??????

    • PF Cadres handing themselves in to prove they are UPND. You think if they were really UPND Frank would have come out without blood. it is all staged by PF.

    • Unless you do not know Frank Bwalya, you wouldn’t take this story with a pinch of salt.The attack was ‘stage managed’ by Frank himself to smear UPND. Which cadre can hand himself ‘in’ sure?

    • I KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED HERE. I KNOW THAT FRANK WAS INDEED ATTACKED BY OUR BOYS. ONE OF THE BOYS IS CALLED SAKALA AND HAILS FROM EASTERN PROVINCE. BUT THE ROOT CAUSE OF ALL THIS VIOLENCE IS EDGAR LUNGU. UNFORTUNATELY, IF LUNGU DOES NOT REVERSE HIS NEW CULTURE OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY, HIM TOO MAY END UP BEING A VICTIM OF THIS VERY VIOLENCE.

    • The people who have handed themselves in were first mentioned by Kadansa.
      Reading Bwalya’s narration of events, its not different from what he did to GBM.
      Bwalya will have to prove his allegations in court. On the other hand maybe next time someone sees him they paint him yellow. The guy is a yellow slime.

    • fake story,the police would have given out the names of suspects,but its zero.no pic and no names,zambian politicians think like they are dealing with people in the 14 century.

    • They should have cleared him why waste time on people who have killed the majority Zambians? Why leave him without a scratch

    • @Lucy

      These people have handed themselves. Let us now let the law take its course.

      We should all abhor violence regardless of perpetrator from Lungu/HH to a lowly misguided cadre.

  1. These people did a right thing to beat you up Bwalya because you are very stupid I wish you many more of that kind of treatment you deserve it big time

  2. This is good news. I don’t approve of violence from anyone to anyone, unless in self defense. Ulubuli fiko. Having said that, I comment the mature manner in which the alleged attackers of Father Bwalya have responded. It is a sign of showing remorse and respect for the law. This is a sign of control and discipline in UPND.

  3. For some reason i feel like this whole thing was staged. Something fishy. I wouldn’t be shocked if he turns round to say i forgive them.
    Watch this space.

  4. Bweengwa kidnapping playing out again. Also in the bweengwa kidnappings, it was reported police had arrested suspects but to date they remain invisible to the naked eye.

  5. Every time it UPND, especially in their Southern Province. What type of behaviour is this? Suppose other political parties started behaving in similar manner in PF strong holds, what type Zambia shall we have? This is barbaric way of responding to issues! Southern Province can you get civilized to avoid putting our lovely country, Zambia on fire! Voters learn something out of this type of conduct by our friends in Southern Province!!!!

  6. What about the ones who beat UPND cadres on youth day. Why have they not been arrested? And those police officers who brutalized a cadre at woodlands police have also not been arrested when minister of home affairs said what they did was wrong.

  7. Something is not right here. Frank Bwalya was on radio at the same time as the UPND youth? No it does not sound true and these guys go and hand themselves in? LOL what is happening here? The people who attacked and stripped a young lady on youth day are easily identified and no arrest made? Our country has gone to ashes. If there ever was a fake story this is one. How come we never saw pictures of him beaten up since he was amongst journalists and he moves with heavy cadre protection.

  8. Yes, stage managed. how come names of suspects are not mentioned. Give us pictures of Bwalya with a cut, bruised or swollen head please or else it’s all fake. Nonsense.

  9. HOW DO THE POLICE ACCEPT TO BE USED LIKE THIS? THEY ARE NO UPND SUPPORTERS WHO ATTACKED THAT NIGGA. IF YOU WANT GO TO ANY POLICE IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE AND ASK FOR ANY OF THE SO CALLED THREE CADRES, YOU WILL FIND NONE

  10. Mr Frank Bwalya’s uncontrolled tongue is his own undoing. Remember how he was dowsed with opaque beer by PF cadres and how he was locked up for the Chumbu musyololwa remark. He needs to be schooled in matters of tongue control and if I were him I would take this latest episode (if it’s true) as lesson 3 in the module on the need for one to tame his tongue.

  11. Frank Bwalya this is rubbish in fact if you met Chishimba Kambwili you could have been dead by now, thank the devil you were met by these boys you carried to monze yourself. Stop thinking that people believe you and what you say. Who does not know you are a devil. Chishimba said when a father runs way from God’s work he becomes mad you are mad you are for sure

    Pray that you will never meet Chishimba Kambwili boyi

  12. This is good news if the “suspected” UPND cadres handed themselves in.
    It will also be important for the “known” PF cadres who assualted UPND youths and stripped naked a lady on Youth day and those PF cadres who hacked UPND cadres in Kanyama last Friday, to hand themselves in.
    My humble appeal to the Republican President is: Please put an end to this political violence, you are the Commander-In-Chief for ALL Zambians and not only PF party. If you protect the PF cadres from getting arrested, this violence will become uncontrollable, because the opposition cadres will not sit idle, they will retaliate whenever provoked. Let the Law visit any citizen who breaks it, regardless of polical affiliation.

  13. This is not true – the story was planned way ahead and was linked before the beatingor attack took place. Mumbi Phiri arranged this with PF youth to mirror UPND cadres. It is a pity the story was released before the said beating took place

  14. Ati ‘ he was badly beaten and sustained serious injuries ‘ but his face is as smooth as a woman just from applying Pond’s powder. Naishupa campaign

  15. 3 suspects in connection with Frank Bwalya assault hand themsleves in.

    Three suspects in connection with the assault on PF deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya yesterday handed themselves to police in Monze in the presence of their lawyer.

    And sources say the case is scheduled for mention today in Monze.

    BA LUSAKA TIMES OR WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELVES, THIS IS HOW A RESPONSIBLE MEDIA HOUSE REPORTS NEW. THE ABOVE ITEM IS REPORTED BY CHIKUNI COMMUNITY RADIO……….MULEKULA

  16. PEOPLE MUST RECALL FRANK BWALYA KILLING A BLACK CHICKEN WHICH WAS THE DIRECTION OF PF AND IT IS. HOW CAN A PRIEST WHO WAS AND TODAY HAS BEEN GIVEN THE PLATFORM OF INVOKING EVIL SPIRIT THROUGH BEATING AND INSULTING. NO ONE CAN DENY FRANK BWALYA IF HE INSULTED THAT IS WHAT HE IS.

  17. Now this reporting what are the names of the suspects, This is all Pathetic failure(PF) propaganda. Upnd cadres without names turn in themselves to police? PF lies as usual!

  18. It was reported that it is the same cadres who attacked in Bweengwa. Now the same cadres have handed themselves over…….. May be it is true but sounds rather weird. More like staged acts by operatives. Sorry I read too much conspiracy theory books.

  19. PF has done a lot of good work in Monze and yet these ba Kanchema can not appreciate.I have lived in Monze for 20 years now.For the first time we are now driving on tarred roads and Niko road well done since independence.Tongas should learn to appreciate others before this HH who grabbed the UPND Presidency from Sakwiba is also recognized.

    • there was a tarred road before, how do you think people drove to Livingstone, what are you doing in a Kachema stronghold? Stop this foolish tribalism it s losing your party votes.

  20. The data we have been given is one sided. Can journalists live by what they have learnt. My question to the authors of this article is that. What effort have you made in ensuring that you get as much data as possible over this issue?What is UPND saying. What are the names of those that bit UPND? I suspect the guy was debating with the UPND guy in radio and the guy was challenged. Mr or madam author, those who are beaten by PF you show us with their injuries. Why are you not showing us an injured Father Bwalya. Any way, the case will restart after 11 th August. Hope Father Bwalya will not be sewed for force pretence.

  21. If Christ came today Zambia, who will make it to heaven from planet earth, do you know anyone? we need to start cultivating the sense of love and unity and illumine with bright Red, Green, Orange and Black our true Identity. Lets not be the first to cast out stones when we know we ourselves are not One Whit Whole. Lets have tolerance as we head towards Aug 11, God Bless Zambia.

  22. Next story will be Frank Bwalwa has forgiven the upnd members who attacked him and had withdrawn all the charges. Stupid man.

  23. PLEASE NEVER COMMENT ON THINGS YOU DONT HAVE INFORMATION ON.
    THOSE UPND THUGS WERE AGAIN ARRESTED AND WERE ON POLICE BOND MEANING SOME CIVIL SERVANTS STOOD FOR THEM AS SURITIES MEANING THERE HINDING WOULD CAUSE THE ARREST OF SIX WORKERS.SO THESE THUGS HAD NO WAY OUT BUT TO SURRENDER TO POLICE.THIS IS STRAIGHT FORWARD NO DRAMA HERE BUT LAW AT PLAY.
    THESE WANTED TO KILL THEY SHUD BE CHARGED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER.LET OTHERS SEE AND LEARN FROM THESE THIEVES.

  24. What is good for the Goose is good for the Gander – If PF is not going to address this violent behaviour they are portraying then let the opposition parties start to protect themselves! If an opposition party member is brutalized you wont hear anything about it in the news worse still from ECL himself denouncing it, but they all turn a blind eye. I am very disappointed with the Veep because as a woman herself I felt she would come to the rescue of the woman who was stripped at a national event, alas “What is good for the goose is good for the gander”
