Police in Lusaka on Friday killed one UPND female supporter after they ambushed a group of supporters that were marching on the Central Business District after Police cancelled a planned rally in Chawama.

Mapenzi Chibulu was pronounced dead on arrival at UTH and another male UPND cadre is seriously injured and admitted to UTH.

In a facebook statement UPND president Hakainde Hichilema said Police fired live bullets at UPND supporters in Lusaka yesterday afternoon, injuring and fatally wounding UPND supporters in a tragic incident that will remain a scar on the conscience of our nation for years to come.

That they have been shot for their political opinions reveals the uncomfortable truth we face today that Zambia is no longer a functioning democracy and if we are not careful it will no longer be a functioning state at all.

Our prayers and condolences are with those injured and the families and friends of those who lost their life. We must demand justice. If we do not speak out and if we let ourselves be intimidated further then more of our people will soon suffer the same terrible fate.

We continue to call for peace. Let me be clear, we are fighting for justice through peaceful means not because we lack strength but because we do not want more of our people to suffer at the hands of police officers or PF cadres. If we react in kind then the consequences for our nation would be disastrous.

As we highlighted in our live TV interview yesterday evening, we have written several letters to President Lungu on this subject and have called for meetings with him to resolve these issues. To date we have never had even an acknowledgement, let alone a response, to our calls. We continue to call for a meeting along with other stakeholders.

We met with the Inspector General of the Police yesterday afternoon. We demanded to know why the rally was cancelled so late and on questionable grounds, as if it was a deliberate move to provoke and confuse our supporters. We have also demanded to know why live bullets were being used for crowd control. We are speaking with international media, observers, civil society and many other stakeholders. We will continue to update you.

The sad reality we face is that we have a generation of young people that are hungry, have no jobs and have lost all faith in the state and state institutions. They feel betrayed by the broken promises of the PF Government. The police, rather than protecting them, has become an instrument of attack and intimidation, with no right for self-defence.

We call on President Lungu to quickly condemn the shootings and apologise directly to the families for something that would never have happened under truly democratic and compassionate leadership.

Meanwhile President Edgar Lungu has said his heart is heavy following the loss of life in yesterday’s fracas between the police and the UPND cadres in Lusaka.

“I first and foremost want to express my deepest sorrow to the family and friends of those who lost a life and were injured in the violence today. 50 years ago we fought hard to bring independence, peace and democracy to our nation. For 50 years our nation has lived with peace, stability and freedom. There is no place for this type of violence in our society. I take a firm stance against any sort of violence in our democracy,” President Lungu said in a message posted on his Facebook page.

“Zambians know the kind of leader that I am, and that I am a man of faith that walks with God. I live my life and lead this country with Christian values. In a Christian nation our brother and sisters can never turn to this sort of violence. We cannot let ourselves be led into a crisis by those who wish to instill fear into the hearts of many in hopes of gaining power and control.”
He added, “We are a blessed nation and cannot afford to lose order and take steps back in the progress we have made. I feel for mother Zambia. I pray for peace for all my people, across all provinces. The people of Zambia shall know peace and this shall not escalate further. We will not be led by fear. I call for unity, and end to the violence.”

President Lungu said Police will take stern action against anyone perpetrating to this violence adding that he has faith that the lines of inquiry police have opened will lead to arrest of the culprits.

  1. Lungu please go to hell. Stop killing people. You’re a rabid dog worth putting down. Just let Zambians exercise their freedoms. If you cannot live in a free society step down and go back to your village in Malawi.

    • Here’s a nasty trend: KK decimated the Lenshina sect that he thought was usurping his power; RB killed Malozi who were questioning the legitimacy of BA64; and Lungu is now killing UPND supporters who want to replace him with HH. The common theme is that all these leaders or ex-leaders are easterners. Why this love of power and using ruthless means to try and retain it by these people?

    • Violence never brings permanent peace. It solves no social problem: it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.”

    • UPND must compile one fine fine solid political advert now depicting all the deaths and other atrocities the PF thugs have been committing. That will be a plus to deter many sensible people from voting for this pf evil party.

      PF is a party of evil hypocrites starting from Chagwa, Kabwili, Kapyonga, Kalaba, down to the illiterate loser thugs they are taking advantage of from the streets.

      To hell with hypocrite leadership, to hell with satanic evil men pretending to be men of God when their acts clearly points to them being satan followers!!

    • Am I hearing what Lungu said correctly? Is he blaming the dead as the one who committed violence against themselves or that they victims brought it upon themselves? Or is he saying the police were right to kill unarmed civilians? Why hasn’t he condemned the cop who killed this innocent civilian?

      The murderer cop should be brought to book and prosecuted accordingly. I’m afraid we may see incidents like these on a regular basis if nothing is done to deter a repeat.

    • How people forget how the Lazy Bum Lungu stated on a campaign platform somewhere just last month to his dog I.G Kanganja that it was okay for him to use a “bit of force”this is what it translates to the Police…if ZP were using teargas canisters before they simply go a stage up to live ammo. If the Inspector General Kanganja was arrested for abuse of power he will simply state that he was following executive orders from State House.
      Tomorrow morning the selfsame Lazy Bum Edgar will be at a church near you sat in the front row pretending to humble, nursing a hangover and preaching about peace.

    • “Zambians know the kind of leader that I am,…” Yes they do. You are blood-thirsty leader who has declared to bring “Armageddon” to Zambia and this is exactly what is happening. HH, you are busy inciting other people’s children to engage in violence whist your own children remain in the safety and conform of your home…! Curse be upon you and your followers. God will judge all of you harshly. HH, GBM, William Banda, etc want to bring back ANC politics of the 1970s which forced KK to declare a One-Part State. Zambians don’t want to go back to those dark days. Let there be peace in Zambia….

    • Condolences to the family of Mapenzi Chibulu. As Zambians we take no pleasure in the loss of life regardless of circumstance behind it. We can only remind all political players in Zambia to continue working with the state police institutions to foster total security in the country. The absence of which only birth such sad confusion that could have costed human life. If we can understand that democracy doesn’t mean anarchy but rule of law and that freedom in democracy is not absolutely where we engage in all sorts of misconduct, this nascent democracy will be appreciated.
      To all cadres, if you can’t see wives and children of politicians in the front-line of anarchy, back-off because they are only sacrificing you. Don’t be their guinea pigs for reckless political experiments.

    • This is sad and the Police Officer responsible must be brought to the book, as he or she over-reacted.
      However, UPND leaders who are in the forefront of instigating their cadres to be unrully are the real ones to blame. Just looking at this photo of a former Minister of Tourism who is on record of being charged for corrupt practices with a face covered in stinking crocodile tears makes me sick to the stomach.

      The Hungry Hyena/ Halenya Halenya is quick to catch on the misfortune of the poor lady MHSRIP, so sad and this just shows the cowardice of UPND leadership and their online trolls who are instigators of hate and confusion!!!

      THE ONES TO BLAME ARE UPND LEADERSHIP PERIOD!!!!

    • This guy is no longer worth of any respect. He’s just using empty words. The policemen who shot these people should be arrested immediately and charged with murder. Zambia is not NAZI Germany. It’s now turning into a police state. First of, the police canceled the UPND rallies for no good reason, except that they seem to be following someone’s orders, obviously from the ruling party. ECL’s invoking of his Christian faith is nothing but a sham. He knows pretty well that the police are openly obstructing UPND, and he’s not doing anything about it. If he’s serious, he needs to address the nation, and announce that the policemen responsible for the violence have been arrested. Going on FaceBook, pretending like he doesn’t know what’s going on is hypocritical and unacceptable. In a…

And the Inspector General of Police needs to get on TV too, and explain to the Zambian people as to why they cancelled the rally, and why his police officers killed and wounded innocent people.

  3. Fact: there was no security concern of any nature to warrant cancellation of the UPND rally. How come it is only UPND rallies which are either cancelled or never ‘permitted’.PF, even if you want to hold on to power, win clean and not by disadvantaging other competitors

    • @Nikambeko, you’re a very low education individual. And remember, I’m not even a UPND cadre, just a concerned Zambian who wants to see peace in our country, and people to have a right to choose their preferred candidate without fear of intimidation. I see by the flag on your profile that you’re in America. So, have you seen police behaving like this in the USA? You’re a complete disgrace.

By the way if shooting was the only reaction to an alleged UPND cadre having a gun Max Chongo the PF cadres would have been long dead

  5. If the UPND rally went ahead, there was not going to be any loss of life. The lie by Police that there was unforeseen security issue and that they could not allow the rally to go ahead is a SHAME. Police don’t have any powers whatsoever to stop a rally, the law is very clear. There will be a truth commission at some point even if it’s after 10 years. Was the young lady shot dead a threat. Some body Will have to account for the innocent lives being lost at some point. He is a living God

    • @Mutale Bowa: You speak the truth.
      The Police were clearly bent on stopping the UPND from holding the rally at whatever cost and sadly it is at the cost of an innocent young woman’s life. Pictures have come out of a young woman running for her life with no weapon but a party Beret in her hand, proving that she was no threat to anyone. But someone saw it fit to shoot her IN THE HEAD with a clear intention to kill.
      That shooter and the one who gave the order should be made to account for their deed.

  6. I am just shocked. Yes it has been more than 50 years of relative peace. Kaunda faced elections and lost but he did not murder, Chiluba (MYSRP) faced the third term and was rejected but he did not murder, Mwanawasa (MHSRP) was called cabbage but he did not murder, Rupiah Banda was called Nyamasoya and lost elections but he did not murder and even Michael Sata was strongly opposed and called names, but he did not murder. Why now?. If Mr Lungu is exonerating himself, who then is the commanding these killings?. Let the outcome of the investigation be quick and public. This must stop.

    • Whatever you have to say does not justify killing Zambians. Your PF govt is a fascist one that kills its citizens at will. Zambia is not supposed to be a police state where people need to ask Lungu to do anything, even attending a meeting at a private home. This PF govt is beginning to equal the Boer apartheid govt in repressing innocent people.

Why would the Police use live bullets for crowd control?These PF trained thugs in Police uniform and armed by ZRP are under the direction of the powers that be. Lungu is just shedding crocodile tears otherwise he is very happy with the execution of his rigging plans which are based on the use of violence and actual election rigging. Lungu is not campaigning becoz he believes his election rigging strategies will make him win and retain power. What is SADC,AU,UN and other Election Observers doing about this blatant use of violence and election rigging using state terrorism?Lungu needs to be restrained if these elections are going to be peaceful.

The cancellation of the UPND rally in Chawama at the 11th hour was just a deliberate move by Edgar Lungu with his PF regime to frustrate UPND supporters and make them react and then brand them that UPND supporters are violent.

    Why should we let him do this? We need an armed struggle now – elections will not do! This mother fuc,king president Lungu does not own our country, Zambia. We can only value peace after seeing the other side of war otherwise other incoming idi.ots like Lungu will do the same.
    Lungu, Rupiah, etc will go and live and die in exile when war starts – but that is not a bad thing because that is when we will have peace!!

      Why should Zambians be killed for congregating or matching together? Why is your boma so important that Zambians should be killed just because they are doing something else that you do not agreed with? How is that provocation? And even if it is provocation, why should people be killed just for their provocation? Shooting Zambians just for joining a demonstration is worse than the shooting of young black men in America for driving cars with broken tail lights.

Even sadam hussein and Gaddafi thought they were invisible, where are they today??? Stoned to death by the same vigilantes they created. Your day of reckoning is coming.

  15. Condolence to Mapenzi’s family!

    Nonetheless, this should be a lesson to all political leaders to turn down the “CONFRONTATIONAL TEMPERATURE” that seems to have been cranked up for reasons only they can appreciate. If you have leaders promising MAYHEM, AMAGEDON, NON-ADHERENCE TO LAW AND ORDER, and the like, what you end up with is exactly what is going on now—citizens dying unnecessary!

    This MISPLACED ‘BRAVADO’ from leaders should STOP. It benefits no one to demonize everybody, including the Police, at the time when our Police should be supported in their efforts to prevent even worse incidences of violence which could easily lead to a more serious National Security situation. No election or leader is Worth shading the blood of even a single citizen’s blood over

  20. In America when a black man was killed by police, blacks, whites, Latinos joined hands and held peacful protests. In Zambia a young innocent women is shot in the back by police for exercising her right to support a party of her choice during this campaign period and people are busy justifying the killing because she doesn’t belong to the party you support, because she comes from the tribe you hate? And you call yourselves Christians? Christian nation my a*s! We should be ashamed of ourselves as a nation! And where is the so called church mother bodies?

  21. Zambians please read something about the South African Bisho killings before the transition to black rule. The militant wing of ANC thought it could win the war against the minority white regime by military struggle. But it took the killings of ANC members during a political event in Bisho for there to be realisation that ANC leaders of the struggle against apartheid were going to sacrifice more ANC members by turning more to arms. Therefore, the moderate wing of the ANC had to prevail over extremist elements so that the negotiated settlement had to be brought about. Why am I using this example? I feel there is need for learning on the part of the UPND membership that intransigence and belligerence on the part of UPND leaders is not what will get them into office. Let the UPND leaders…

Why do you want to cow others into submission because you control “boma”? You are worse than the colonialists and it is telling that your reference is the racist and fascist Boer apartheid regime.

  22. Let the UPND leaders stop sacrificing the innocent lives of their cadres by sending them to fight police whilst their lives are safe. There was an order from the police that was issued in consultation with the ECZ that the planned rally by UPND in Chawama not go ahead due to security concerns. The law is clear on this. UPND should have asked the police to provide for an alternative time when their cancelled rallies should have gone ahead. But then what did the UPND leadership do? They decided to mobilise their members to defy the police and put the lives of their members in danger. But are such leaders who abrogate the law worth dying for? Bus loads of UNZA students were on Friday the 8th of July seen being transported into town by the UPND around 17hours.

      Lungu, Inonge Wina, Kambwili and company have shown they are criminals that have hijacked the country for their own selfish and greedy gains. And are prepared to kill to stay in power.

      Enough of this failed PF experiment! We want a peaceful and united Zambia FOR ALL ZAMBIANS.

  24. This still raises questions about the security situation at UNZA where politicians are able to walk into campus at will despite measures that have been put in place. The question still remains as to why UPND leaders are not using their own children but the children of others to defy police. Where do UPND leaders get authority to be using the children of others in UNZA to fight their political battles whilst their own children enjoy the safety of their homes? How responsible are these UPND leaders in what they do?

Im so sure a reason was given by the police for cancelling the rally. The truth will be told why the police pulled the triger. Stop it you people you are costing our peace all because you want to prove that you are being victimised. They is also a possibility that people that are not particpating in whatever you are doing get caught up in the confusion. STOP it all in the name of allowing one person & his family to go into state house???

    When rally is cancelled, it is the Party leaders to negotiate at table level… not street protests
    When uninformed protestors line the streets, the Police need to restrain them with minimum force to restrain/disperse them.

    The death of our dear girl leaves us with many lessons to learn.
    Let this be the firs and last. We surely do not need more deaths of this kind.

    THAT LADY WAS KILLED BY UPND
    am very upset because a life was lost yesterday. Like I have always maintained, no politician is worthy dying for.

    My condolences to the family of the lady who was killed. As someone who has read over 600 novels. I have a few questions…..

    1. The lady who was killed was well captured with UPND party regalia. Who had the time to capture her when everyone was running?

    2. She is captured in an area where it appears there are few cadres. Was it news worthy to take that picture in an area where there were only about 2 people leaving the other parts where many cadres were scampering for safety?

    3. After she was killed, was it necessary to go to the mortuary and take the pictures of her dead body?

    4. When the police…

  38. A life is lost, a young Zambian lady, whilst expressing her political preference, running for her life, but killed to prove a point that ‘don’t play with police!’ The IG of police insists that rubber and not live bullets were used. But this statement is issued even before a postmortem is conducted! Only the UPND are meted with such extreme force constantly. Mapenzi, our lovely young beautiful young lady, may your soul find eternal peace from the troubles of this world. May you obtain eternal comfort and joy in the arms of your Maker and God. Father God, we come against the spirit of tribal hatred for our innocent and hardworking fellow Tonga brothers and sisters. We love them and are proud to vote for HH and his wining team this August.

  46. President Lungu, why are you so defensive? Each time there’s violence or someone gets murdered, you behave as if you are not the Head of State. Your response is always one expected from a party president in opposition. You are always coming to the defence of your party activists. You are the ruler of all Zambians, you are therefore expected to be impartial. Condemn violence without coming to the defence of your party members, whom everyone knows (ofcourse except you) that they have committed crimes that should have been investigated if the IG was professional and impartial. So please condemn violence, let the police make their investigations and report back to us your employers.

I wonder why the peaceful protesters were wearing masks if they had no intentions of being lawlessness. Anyway as someone has shared i am equally suprisred why the deceased was photographed alone running. We need the truth we refuse the handful of people to portray a wrong picture all in a bid of one person going into state house. Alot of gymnastics are being used so that the ruling party maybe viewed as voilet party. From carrying cadres to go and protest against the closure of the post to killing. What else can these people do. People stop allowing yourselves to be used. I ask again why wear masks for peaceful protest?

HH tells his cadrws to stop being unrulyband violent and the violence stops. Unfortunately HH is now a robot under the control of GBM, Scot, Sampa, Mulenga Sata, and and and of course the so calked PastorMumba, all reporting to the churf satanist Mmembe.
