  1. According to this story the man has not been tried in a court of law yet, so unless he has made a confession, it is not fair to say that he has stolen but rather to say that he has allegedly stolen. If he has made that confession it should be mentioned.

    • Ba Hamanase Hamalila ukwiba ka….But UPND and its Zachi Dogs have from time in memorial been defaming bembas as monkey thieves that must be shoved to Katanga when they ever get power. What has happened for ba Hamanase Hamalila to steal?

    • These are the last kicks of the dying PF. The visionless PF bandits are engraved with pathological lies, day in & night out accusing the opposition, esp UPND of wrong doing, when its always PF hooligans bringing anarchy in the country.
      Tired of PF’s pathological short legged lies & come 11~8, its Kuyabebele visionless PF bandits & UPND takes over from these incompetent hoodlums.
      Vote wisely for UPND & HH to smack PF’s violence out. 60 days left.

    • @Sisters of Mercy, I agree with you the wording is incorrect, i suspect Ms katanga was misquoted.
      @Skeleton, Hamanase Hamalila was arrested for alleged theft not because he is a member of UPND. Talking about anarchy, could you care to explain to me what Mr. William Tekela Banda a known vigilante is doing in the UPND? As long as these violent people are still part of our politics violence will not end. Start by cleaning your house before accusing your neighbor of dirt. This country belongs to all of us.

  2. We have always said that UPND should not be dominated by Tongas alone. This is why the Almighty Bemba Cartel has moved in to enhance brainpower in that group of thick cattle herders

    • They have surrendered their party to the Bembas they shined in order to win the elections.Kilometers Sampa told them to marry Bembas, but they insulted him and today he is their Savior, shame

  3. They are a disorganised bunch of *****s these upnd chaps.the next one to be arrested is there parliamentary candidate in ndola for defilement.

  4. ‘’ I can confirm that UPND candidate for Mutenda ward Hamanase with his colleague have been arrested for stealing stock feed worth K800.00 and they have been detained at Chingola Central Police’’ Ms Katanga said.

    This dwarf girl Katanga is fighting for that IG position …the article says allegedly but she is saying something else on the phone…the dwarf is truly unprofessional; no wonder the policw is stagnant.

    • Even in 2015 you and your fellow failures kept mumbling and talking same rhetoric and bigotry but ECL triumphant and HH was the looser. Same thing will happen.
      HH and you blind followers think 2015 numbers were a popularity test for him. You forget simple facts that voter turnout was 33% average but 95% in Southern province.
      Remember the role that Muzungu wopusa played. while HH kept campaigning, ECL was grounded with court cases deliberately created by Sikoti. While hh campaigned for 90 days. ECL had 23 days only and he won while your hh lost.
      Now watch this one. Bringing into HH team, haters of ECL like Kilometer, Sikoti, maroads masebo gbm will not make hh win 2016 election. That be prepared to accept. Infact this is negative to hh
      ECL is campaigning not as a novice this…

  5. Following steps the steps of their master who dribbled the Zambians the proceeds from the sale of mines. Birds of the same feathers flock together.

  6. u shud also the nation when, I mean, on what day, date and year did he steal the items. don’t just say he stole or is a thief , but tell us more about the stealing.

  7. Desperation of the highest level, if you are a member of opposition avoid anything like borrowing or getting goods on credit. These desperate Pa Fimafi will do anything to turn a normal business into a criminal activity so that they have no competitor. Be extra careful all especially those from the most popular opposition party.

  8. Update us on that guy who shot a UPND carder please ,any arrest so far? Do not rush to the press only when it is a UPND carder who has committed a crime.

  9. At this crucial period the opposition leaders are prone to all sorts of accusations and arrest to derail the campaigns. Yes they can round UPND candidates for tramped up charges but those things are expected and will not change peoples minds to choose their own leaders to lead them. The Boers then had the mighty military on the African continent plus a few nuke weapons but when wind of change started blowing they were swept off power and now it is history written. So even the PF Police know better that things will not be the same come 11th August 2016.
