Electoral Expert Macdonald Chipenzi had demanded for the resignation of Justice Minister Dr Ngosa Simbyakula after a document unearthed from lawyer Martha Mushipe’s offices showed that he jointly authored a confidential document which proposed the use of violence to guarantee the PF’s stay in power.

The document titled “PF Domination Strategy 2015-2016 and Beyond” believed to have been authored by Dr Simbyakula and two Zimbabwean politicians was discovered after a three-hour search at Ms. Mushipe’s law firm.

Mr Chipenzi said the discovery of the confidential document implicating Dr Simbyakula makes great sad reading.

“If truly, the Police are working professionally and ethically, Dr. Simbyakula and other persons must be searched thoroughly and if found with a case to answer, they must be arrested for allegedly producing materials aimed at stabilizing the country’s multiparty democracy and breaching the constitution,” Mr Chipenzi demanded.

He added in a statement, “Dr. Simbyakula should also resign on moral grounds as Minister of Justice because his continued stay at the Ministry of Justice will be a mockery to Zambia’s justice system, rule of law, democracy and human rights.”

He said there is no way a Minister overseeing issues of justice, democracy, rule of law and human rights could be implicated in sinister activities such as alleged production of domination strategy over the opposition using violence and ethnic hegemony.

“It is, therefore, embarrassing also to President Edgar Lungu and Minister of Home Affairs, Davies Mwila who authorized and signed the search warrant respectively to search Counsel Martha Mushipe’s law firm leading to exposure of the PF’s evil machination against democracy and the people of Zambia and also ended up implicating Hon. Dr. Ngosa Simbyakula,” he said.

“In this regard, Hon. Mwila should order another search on Dr. Simbyakula and his two colleagues and further demand a statement from Dr. Simbyakula to exonerate himself from such clandestine activities aimed at stabilizing the country as a Cabinet Minister.”

He said Dr. Simbyakula’s alleged involvement in such activities has undermined President Edgar Lungu’s rule and Zambia’s motto of One Zambia, One Nation and must with immediate effect drop Dr. Simbyakula as Minister, if he was not part of the exposed strategy to destabilize the country as PF President.

“I therefore, condemn the continued harassment of innocent citizens like Lawyer Martha Mushipe and continued abuse of state institutions by those in power when culprits are well known and left free,” he said.

    • Kikikikikiki,yaba! Ba Chipenzi I know you’re pretending to believe that the document is authentic. It is short and I don’t think Simbyakula’s memory is that bad for him to fail to ratain it’s content minus having it on hard copy. He’s been in government for a long time and I don’t think he’d risk having a short document containing sensitive information printed. I know some people are suffering from analysis paralysis because they want to see a certain person at state house…….mukose! Viva ECL.

    • Symbyakula just like his boss Edgar, is a failed lawyer…both have been clueless on what to do with a colonial piece of legislation in POA. Look at how they have allowed abuse of public media..rule of law eludes them both.

    • Can you imagine what would have happened if that report had an opposition member`s name on it, the police would have landed on him like a tone of bricks, Now that its a PF guy they will just say we will investigate and then it will die a natural death, Thants Africa for you.

  2. At this point in time it is not right to rant over something that you do not have irrefutable evidence to show others as proof. It would have been justifiable to accuse Dr. Simbyakula if the alleged letter had his signature appended to it. Without this evidence, this is just a smear campaign to discredit the Minister of Justice. The issue raised here is a serious one which certainly requires investigation by the relevant authority. One Zambia One Nation.

  3. It’s Lungu implementing the evil strategy given to him by Mugabe to turn Zambia into a pariah state worse than Zimbabwe. It will never work in Zambia. The evil humble leader and all his co-conspirators should just resign and pave way for a new govt.

  4. Not so fast. Who signs there name to such a document? That is a fake document you numb sculls. At least UPND be smart when you attempt to frame someone. What would be the point of him signing his name and get credit for such an incriminating document? Think people. This document just happens to be only document lying around at the UPNDs lawyers office? These are exactly the type of document that were looking for to implicate UPND and it just happens that it is PF on the document? Really? Think.

    • If PF can classify boxing gloves, golfclubs and catapults found at GBM’s gym military weapons meant to arm a militia, why can’t they be the author’s of this document.????.

      Every time PF cooks up something that requires application of considerable intelligence to plan and implement, it backfires on them almost immediately. Do you remember Bweengwa abduction?

  5. Although the document was not signed it could still be authentic. A Zimbabwean source reveals that Mr Didymus Mutasa mentioned in the document was a Minister of State in charge of National Security in President Robert Mugabe’s office at the time. Mr Mutasa was only dismissed as Minister in July 2015. Most likely Zimbabwean Central Intelligence Organization (CIO) is involved in a sting operation to keep ECL and PF in power In Zambia at all costs. Zambians can ignore these election rigging threats at their own peril.

  6. Mr Chpenzi at it again. This discredited man shouldn’t be given any space in public discourse. He misled the people of Zambia through the useless Grand Coalition on the People Driven Constitution. We told him that the Draft Constitution was a rushed document with contradictory clauses. The F**L and his Partner , the UPND couldn’t listen. After the Constitution he wanted has been passed, he now turns around and starts condemning the same document he wanted to be passed in full. Useless and mediocre people who are totally irrelevant to Public Discourse.

  7. So many myopic Zambians who care for nothing more than their ethnic and narrow self interests are dismissing the obvious. If these accusations were leveled against the Rainbow, or other party, I am certain the tone of the ‘evidence debate’ would be more vehement. In truth, with or without this document, there is irrefutable evidence – at least for anyone who cares – of violence (ignored by law enforcement authorities for obvious reasons) and manipulation of tax-funded public media. One needs to be deeply uncaring for ZAMBIA to miss these obvious facts.

  10. The document was the major reason for the search. As Government we had information that Martha is scheming to tarnish Simbyakula.

  11. These pipo should not be allowed near the govt. Leave simbyakula alone and only a fool can buy that. When is lungu going to realize that he has enemies in his pocket? These pipo knew the search and quickly wrote the document.
