Kanganja challenges Nevers Mumba to provide information on politicians behind ritual killings

INSPECTOR General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has challenged MMD leader Nevers Mumba to provide information on the politicians who are allegedly involved in the ritual killings that have rocked Lusaka for the past one month.

The police chief has charged that Dr Mumba’s statement was alarming to the nation and will not be entertained by the Police Command.

But Dr Mumba has insisted that politicians were involved in the ritual killings that have so far claimed several lives in which the victims had body parts removed. So far, 12 suspects have been arrested to help police with investigations.

Dr Mumba claimed that accusing foreigners of perpetrating the brutal killings was misleading because every election year politicians tended to use ‘‘dark forces’’ as a way of ascending to power. “Every time there is an election, we experience such killings,” he said. Dr Mumba said some politicians used evil forces to ascend to power during elections.

He said the trend was common across the African continent and warned politicians who could have a hand in the ritual killings to desist from the vice.

Dr Mumba said church leaders were aware of what he was talking about.

“Those of us who have been around for a long time, have seen such things happen across Africa towards election period,” he said.

But the police chief has described Dr Mumba’s statement as alarming and intended to incite chaos in the country. “No, no, no. Dr Mumba is alarming the situation,” Mr Kanganja said.

He said the police would obtain and study the recording of Dr Mumba’s statement that politicians were the ones behind the ritual killings.

Mr Kanganja said it were statements like the one Dr Mumba had made which was prompting members of the public to react.

“We did warn the general public against alarming the nation by misleading statements on the ritual killers. We said we would deal with those issuing alarming statements,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Kanganja said more people would be arrested in connection with the ritual killings as investigations had so far reached an advanced stage.

The Police Command would soon issue a statement in connection with the murders that have terrified Lusaka residents.

“As police, we are on top of things. We are doing everything possible to ensure that everybody involved is brought to book,” Mr Kanganja said.

The police chief said more people would be arrested as the police intensified and widened their investigations.


    • If its any politician at all, its certainly not HH! Its those at are desperate and scheming day and night how they will try and rig and how they will try to stay in power despite their failures.

    • Ba Kanganja, Pastor Mumba is just mourning, and what is wrong of him linking it to politicians even if elections are just a coincidence?
      Kanganja is implying that politicians are immune to investigations.

    • But why Nevers Mumba alone. Edagr lungu said it was opposition leaders who wanted to win the coming election. Can he also provide names of those opposition leaders?

    • Kudos , NO ORIGINALITY!! Lucifer in the flesh was coined by Boehner!!

      We all know who our local “Lucifer in the flesh” is!! He pretends to be christian, wants to build some so called prayer Hall, like the ones found in HADES!! He unleashes Panga wielding killers & blames others, hiring Sangoma’s for Plot 1, one wonders what spirits he is trying to get rid of, one would have thought, that with friends like Faza Bwalya, who needs Sangoma’s? & one need not fear evil or the devil, but alas!!

      #PamaFi kuyabebele!! #chagwamustfall!!

      Vote wisel11/8/2016!! Vote Zambia Forward!! Vote UPND!!

      I thank you!!

    • Mumba should come up with names instead of speculating. Anybody contesting for President should look at handing over any criminals, including fraudsters like Lungu, to the Police.

  1. Ritual Hichilema. And his followers from Under5 Pemba NegaNega Dambo, they follow his smelly manure arsse to those mutilated bodies like flies because he’s a piece of turd

  2. @Kudos
    PF has brainwashed you good, and whatever you are benefiting from them, you & family is really yielding that primitive character you possess.
    Being a hacker that is skilled in MySQL injections, I would have unearthed the real scam you’re from information (email & IP mac address) a long time but for the sake of discipline & privacy, I’ll let you continue exposing your primitiveness

    • PFools insist that social media has no influence. Yet the Chinese state and oppressive regimes like Lungu’s spend millions of dollars trying to shut down social media. They are feeling the pain.

  3. He is a politician who had ascended to the highest pinnacle of power before, does it mean he himself went through the process?. Let him assist the Police with investigations. Politicians should avoid opportunist tendencies in situations where their people are undergoing difficult times such as loss of relatives and friends under very cruel circumstances, it is not morally right. When law and order breaks down, nobody is going to benefit except criminals and those that thrive on psychological terrorism.

  4. INSPECTOR General are you just coming on this earth today to deny the undeniable? Nevers Mumba is just stating the facts of common knowledge as a citizen of Africa (the home ground of rituals), politician, Christian. He is not saying that its politicians behind it. He is just talking about common practice & belief in Africa in general that, in election years cases of ritual murders are widespread. His belief but not fact.
    Election Years in Africa + Politicians = Ritual Murders
    If one says rain comes in rainy season or electricity load shedding is common in el nino yearsis it a crime? Had you used this belief yourselves you could have even prevented the loss of lives we have experience so far because you knew that elections were around the corner and could have prepared for it rather…

  5. Mr Kudos comments post is sickening! This article has anything to do with HH, you hate him so much that you can’t help yourself but mention him name. Did your father reached grade 12? He would have taught you good manner. If you don’t have anything to say just shut up then post senseless messages. You should change your user name ti “childsh Kudos “.

  6. Jeleous and hatred are a misfortunes in some pipo.Kangaja why can’t you arrest lungu bcoz he is de one who alarmed the nation that four forginers hav bin arrest?even yoself why are pipo killed during elections?lungu has brought bad lucky to our dear country bcoz he dribbled others during convention where hands and pangas were raised and he is not God choosen

  7. People like Kudos who write things about HH don’t know that they are actually making him popular. I was PF but I changed and became UPND because of people like that. Discuss policy not insults or accusations. For your own information zambians are smarter than you think and they know all this nonsense of painting a bad picture on HH. You are making him popular. Use such platforms to sell your candidate

    • This is a speech he made to the Queen of England, “My majesty Mr. Queen Sir, horrible
      ministers and members of parliament,
      invented Guests, ladies under
      gentlemen. I hereby thank you
      completely…..Mr. Queen, sir; and also
      what he has done for me and my fellow
      Uganda who come with me.
      We have really eaten very much. And
      we are fed up completely:And also very
      thanks to you keenly open up from all
      windows: so that those plenty climates
      can come into lunch. But before I go
      back to my country with a plane from
      the Entebbe airport of London I wish to
      invitation you Mr. Queen, to become
      home to Uganda so that we can also
      revenge on you .
      You will eat a full cow:and also feel up
      your stomach and walk with difficult
      because of full stomach completely.
      Even when you want to rest…

  8. Kanganja,be professional,Mumba is talking about the trend and it is this trend that would help the police do their job best…He is helping you infact.2011,we saw isues like Ruth ,MHSRIEP,How has that case ended? Why is that towards elections Zambia experiences such deaths…One wonders..If the ritual killings were business related,business does not wait for elections…Ubushiku bufwile nsofu….Kanganja dont threaten innocent citizens,after all its the citizens being killed not police officers,waumfwa…

  9. “In Africa, when ever there is change of power heads must roll” – Idi Amin
    African politicians tsk…tsk…..

  10. “His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”
    The titles that Idi Amin, president of Uganda, gave himself, as reported in “A Clown Drenched in Brutality”, Sunday Times, 27 July 2003.

  11. “In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order”

    -Idi Amin
    “His Excellency President for Life Field Marshal Al Hadji Dr. Idi Amin,
    VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the
    Sea and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and
    Uganda in Particular.”

  12. I cannot access the zambiawatchdog website, this is the third day. I am getting the message ‘Error establishing a database connection’. Is anybody experiencing the same?

  13. Kudos its high time u grew up! We no longer live in the colonial days. If hh is a satanist then provide evidence! He’s a human being like u and as well u can be satan’s child. In fact u are reading from the consistency of yo hate messages against one tribal grouping… Son of a bitCh u are, bitch leaker u are, ass hole…the list is endless

In fact u are reading from the consistency of yo hate messages against one tribal grouping… Son of a u are, bi.t.c.h leaker u are, a.s.s ho.l.e…the list is endless

  15. See this is what happens when you have lawmakers and political leaders who do not qualify. They think they must kill some constituents to stay in their positions and consolidate the fluke. The Grade 12 clause is a godsend and I hope it weeds out all these useless characters who for years have kept our nation stagnant and forced out those of us who had genuine intention to really develop our country. Why should it even be a struggle to survive in your own country as a professional? Now we know: ritual killing politicians and underdeveloped, failed scholars… Yaba! Awe mwe!

  16. “Meanwhile, Mr Kanganja said more people would be arrested in connection with the ritual killings as investigations had so far reached an advanced stage.”
    To convince me unless I hear your report on Ruth Mbao which you said you were closing up with the killers.

  17. No matter what, we’re closely monitoring the intensy investigations kanganja is alledging. My allmighty God whom l worship wil realy never be mocked, these stup!d Boko Haram wil soon be exposed. Please God help us to give us a leader who wil have a fear for you! Meanwhile, its foward with HH 2016. Amen!
