Visiting US Assistant Secretary for African Affairs Linda Thomas Greenfield says the US Government will continue commenting on matters happening in Zambia as long as they concern that country.

Ms. Greenfield told a media briefing at the US Embassy in Zambia that the US Government has strong interest in Zambia as it seeks to protect the country’s democratic gains.

Ms. Greenfield is President Barack Obama’s principle adviser on African affairs.

“We cannot be stopped from commenting on issues that are of concern to us… The arrest and beating of The Post owner, his wife and The Post deputy managing editor is an assault on press freedom” said Ms. Greenfield.

“Freedom of the press is a key component of democracy and it is important for your elections,” she said during a public discussion on political violence ahead of the August 11 general election.

“I am not arguing that the Post should not pay the fee, what I am arguing is that efforts should be made to work it out so that you can continue to have the benefits of an independent state,” she said.

Ms. Greenfield reiterated the US Government’s call for the reopening of the Post Newspapers.

She said the closure of the Post is a loss of an independent voice during the campaign period and the election cycle.

“The US Government urges the Zambian Government to work with the Zambian Revenue Authority and the Post to find a way forward that allows the Post to begin to pay its back taxes, so we are not supporting the Post not paying its taxes but also allow the Post which is a voice, an independent voice to immediately resume reporting. The beating of the Post owner and the wife and the Deputy Managing Editor and indeed the beating and harassing of any member of the press is a direct assault of press freedom,” she said.

She added, “We would like to see Zambia play a greater role in the region but the country’s reputation is on the line during this pre-election period and on August 11. The August 11 elections must be free and fair, transparent, credible and more than anything peaceful.”

“The goals of my visit to Zambia is to urge political leaders to stress that the elections must be peaceful with Zambia’s leading political candidates, the visit was to stress the importance of credible and peaceful elections and I would like to make that statement stronger here with the press that no individual should be allowed to be used for political purposes and commit violent acts against the people of Zambia.”

Police in Lusaka yesterday formerly charged and arrested The Post Newspapers editor -in-chief Fred M’membe, his wife Mutinta and his deputy managing editor Joseph Mwenda for uttering a false document.

Police deputy spokesperson Rae Hamoonga in a statement stated that the trio had also been arrested for breaking into a building with intent to commit a felony contrary to section 304 of the penal code.

“Police in Lusaka have formerly charged and arrested Mr. Fred M’membe, his wife Mutinta Mazoka M’membe and Mr Joseph Mwenda for Breaking into a building with intent to commit a felony Contrary to Section 304 of the Penal Code Act, criminal trespass Contrary to Section 306(a) of the Penal Code Act and uttering a false document Contrary to Section 352 of the Penal Code Act,” Mr. Hamoonga stated.

He stated that the trio have been released on police bond and were scheduled to appear in court next week on Thursday.

    • Kikikikikikiki,yaba! The Americans are not so intelligent after all. Why can’t you make thís thing go away by simply paying the taxes on behalf of the Post. How many times have the Post been given given opportunities to pay in installments and they have failed to meet their obligations? If government wants to create lawlessness in thís country, let them go ahead and reopen the Post minus them paying the full amount and see how hard it will become for them to collect simple taxes like road tax. ZRA will prevail over thís issue because majority of Zambians are in full support of their actions.

    • UPND team should demand that on the ballot paper, the picture of the running mate should show as opposed to name only. The PF in collaboration with the slippery ECZ have deliberately done this because they know their mama running mate is not popular.
      My grandmother in Malole wants to go and vote for GBM but because she does not know to read she will not be able to put her vote on GBM’s UPND.

      Please those with access to UPND secratariate and the UPND campaign manager should pass on this message so that they demand this be implemented. I have seen the sapple for the proposed presidential ballot paper, i know what iam talking about.

    • @yayaya, at times it’s really divine to shut up on issues that are beyond your competence. I am privileged to have been a career foreign service officer through out my working career and thus I understand how the world of diplomacy works. To begin with yayaya, there is no convention that stops an Ambassador, Zambian or otherwise, from commenting on affairs of a receiving state if it’s done within the laws of that country. Why Zambian Ambassadors are perceived not to comment on issues taking place in their receiving states is that they are not really Ambassadors extra-ordinary and plenipotentiary. What do I mean? Zambian Ambassadors may wish to comment on issues but they are not allowed by their own government here can at home unless and until they can get caught authority from Lusaka…

      while i do not condone the beating of mmembe, his wife and editor, i strong feel the USA govt has crossed the line.
      paying tax is serious business in the USA and other western countries and even individuals file their tax returns every single year as a legal requirement and failure to do so results into serious penalties from the IRS…. who can easily go into your account and garnesh your wages
      Let Mmembe pay and the post will reopen overnight.

    • Did you think the Eurobonds you have been stealing were free money that you can use to harass, imprison and kill your own citizens? The lenders know very well that if Zambia becomes another Zimbabwe, they will never get their Eurobonds back. That’s why Chakolwa Chagwa must be put on the straight and narrow road so that Zambia avoids being another failed state. Unfortunately all this is coming too late.

  4. Yayaya, did you know that ths US you are talkng about helps feed Zambia otherwise you will be feed on rats from Eastern province. Ask Tanzania, they are feeding on rats right now. All the donar funds you are seeing Chagwa misusing comes from outside Zambia. Actually the US were supposed to help cage this Chagwa who has been depositing Eurobonds in hs account and he thinks he is rich. If violence is what Chagwa know wait if Chagwa takes arms, the US is able to arm the opposition then you will see Chagwa using those tunnels at State house, hide but he will be found since every Zambian knows super Ken built those tunnels for safety. You think things are okay in Zaambia, no Chagwa’s time is coming and coming so fast.

Our govt has been telling us they are seeking 1 billion USD bailout from IMF. Key word bailout. ..meaning our economy really really needs it. But kooks like we have just breached some of the key conditions.

The soiders won’t protect him, when that time comes juniors will be on the side of the new government and quickly protect the incoming HH.

Ok, so this system of freedom of speech, its in the hands of evil people. Did you know that if it was in US, the guy was going to be in Jail by now? We had ARMKO security cmpni, which had so many workers than Fred, with K500,and not 5300,we are talking about. It was closed and charges were made.
    We are VAT and PAYEE here. 2 big cases.
    And BUK Teeth LUNGU, do not write things that you don't understand. You are a fool. All what ZRA is asking the post is pay back our money. And ZRA is doing this on our behalf. Am calling all loving Zambians to think thru over this and understand the good position our ZRA team is doing. So please your friend to just pay…

  8. Mmembe is a seasoned crook. He is not the normak cuvilised human being whom you can negotiste business with, least of keep a pledhe about paying his taxes. Part of the reason fir his arrigance is the sympathy thay he receuves from gullible people like this esteemed American lady. The US Assistant Secretary of State will soon learn whom Mmembe really is. The only problem is that US government will never admit a mistake to an African country. Just look atbher ckaims that Mmembe was beaten , lifted straight from the gutter press., and they have not bothered to check or counter check the facts. They will even believe that Edgar Lungu went to beat Mmembe with a stick. Double tragedy of being black, as an accuser (US) and as an accused (Zambia).

      Mmembe helped PF come to power by exposing RB’s corruption. Immediately the post editorial was about ” Michael good, Michael great…” there was no doubt that they were eating our money by not paying tax.

      Now RB knows the danger of the Post and has told ECL to do something or his corruption and rigging will be exposed.

    • I admire your attempt at humour only by trivializing the matter the underlying message of your blog is that freedom of expression does not concern Zambia which is wrong. As the Assistant Secretary says, this in no small part is about freedom of expression and free and fair elections which DO concern Zambia and should concern you too! At stake is Zambia’s standing on the world stage.

      Yes paying tax is important, only in this case has become little more than a convenient excuse for Lungu and his cabal to close down an unsympathetic newspaper at election time. If the Post had been praising PF this never would have happened. Sure! The tax question would have been put off for later.

The end justifies the means. The Post will undermine and expose Lungu’s Election Rigging Programme so Lungu will keep it closed. The only thing Zambians can do is to stop Lungu from stealing their votes and illegally declaring himself winner and new President of Zambia. Lets all unite and go and vote in huge numbers but also watch out for Lungu’s rigging manoeuvres. Vote HH and UPND.

But you can not cheat big brothers like US, UK, Germany, Russia, etc, Barrack Obama knows very well why he sent the African advisor to him ,to visit Zambia to tell ECL that he [ ECL] and his violent pf cadres and pf police cadres must cease what they are doing , sooner than later Zambia may dance the music of big brothers.

    We can’t wear opposition cloths without being harassed. We have no alternative print media, the oositon is not allowed on state TV.

You don’t get to see a Zambian commenting on issues like that on USA soil saying you are being unfair to the entertainment industry. I put it to you that one M’membe has not been taken to jail but he should be seen to obey the court’s decision and ZRA mandate. It is deeply disturbing to learn that the mighty US of A through this Linda is with impunity trying to lecture a country founded on unity and love by issuing careless and reckless statements. ZRA is doing the job it has always done even before you set your filthy feet on Zambian soil. Whereas we respect the US of A economically, its human rights record leaves much to be desired. Don’t support lawlessness.

I suggest you pay a courtesy call at the ZRA before you remembrance yourself and your country. Bail M’membe out so he can run back to his office, time is running out!

  46. M’membe is very right to complain that ZRA’s move to collect tax is political, because this is what he has been doing in order to evade it. He held hostage Mwnawasa & Sata’s (MTSRIP)governments as way of avoiding tax. He has always used legal means and political expedience to ensure that he does not honour tax obligations and yet busy portraying himself as holier than thou. Just pay to avoid sending your loyal employees into abject poverty because of your greediness. Moreover, if you cared for mother Zambia you would have been doing the right things.

Imagine Nawakwi, Chiluba plucked her from Soweto Market and made her his minister of this and that and finally of Finance. During the Anglo American disengagement from Zambia, she led the team to negotiate with Anglo then lead by Anderson Mazoka. It was so shameful, she even switched to Nyanja during the deliberations asking Anderson, and quote: “Ti tandizeni ko sure”. And she knew very well Anderson was employed by Anglo and she and Chiluba were busy day and night plotting against Mazoka. It was pathetic, she had zero skills and no wonder they sold the country for peanuts, ba Mnwacusa mwa tuchusha saana.

  58. Fred Mmembe is a very manipulative character. Just to show you how dodgy and manipulative he is, he has now successfully changed what is really a tax issue into political and police brutality issue and even foreigners now see it as such. On the eastern province we have a saying. “Nena chatsitsa Zaye kuti Njobvu ithyoke Mnyanga” This proverbs speaks about an elephant resting under a fruit tree and one of the fruits (Zaye) falls from height and breaks the elephant’s tusk” And there was a great uproar amongst the animal kingdom because the elephant was the king until the clever Kalulu (hare) solved the puzzle by asking a basic question. “What caused the fruit to fall” then all animals looked up and saw that there was a monkey in the tree.

    This is the man who has accused numerous other people of being criminals, drunkards, misfits and tribalists. Today some of his victims are dancing for him because they cannot discern his manipulative and egocentric persona.
    M’membe should simply pay tax and president Lungu should ignore these Americans with the contempt they deserve over this matter. Why should he ECL interfere in a court case?

    Debt refers to something that is owed or due either physically or metaphorically. In the physical sense, the parties to debt are lenders (those who give) and borrowers (those who receive). In the metaphorical sense, debt refers to a moral obligation not based on physical value (e.g.: debt of gratitude). (FACT)

    Debt was the first form of commerce (barter system) documented in human history and existed about 2,900 years prior…
