President Lungu’s response to the police killing of Mapenzi, is one of the most narcissistic I have ever heard out of a Zambian President.

He says “As you know, I am such a Christian, this makes me sad” You??? How is this about you? We all heard this president order the police to work on the opposition because “ukutumpa kwachilamo.”

He did this at a rally carried live for the whole country to hear the delirious chants of “Lungu Lungu” that broke out across the stadium in response to that most frightening statement from a president. So he knows we heard him and we understood him. The police did too. That is why, deep in a campaign period, the police could cancel an opposition rally after people were already on their way there.

They had enough officers to shut down a venue but not to address whatever security concerns they claimed. So Edgar should not play with us. If you join the dots, he ordered the killing of Mapenzi. He announced that he called the police to State House to order them to “bombelapo” on the opposition.

Well they did! We are waiting to hear what he is going to do now. Does he want a few more people to die before he publicly calls the police off the opposition. My question to Edgar is, are you happy now? Have the police proved their worth to you?

  1. Mazabuka MP Garry Nkombo fears that UPND will suffer the heaviest defeat if tribal party leader insists to contest in 2016.
    Nkombo has confided in his close friend and church mate that Zambians’ hatred for HH’s tribal politics has continued to grow.

    • This was a flop rally. How do you go on holding rallies in towns where the slain girl originates from b4 even barial takes place??. But ba Chagwa, your advisers are not doing their home works properly, you cant do that surely, its like u are mocking the local people in Southern!!

      Ba PF just accept, on this one (killing the young lady) you have made a big big mistaken. This is what happens with little scared men-you were aimed at punishing the opposition by cancelling their rally at the 11th hour, but God has his own way of punishing crooked and wicked scared little men like you, you will end up losing more undecided voters because the blood of that young lady is on your hands-God will punish you more for your devilish acts!!

    • THIS ANALYSIS IS SPOT ON. LUNGU IS INSENSITIVE. ALL HE SEES IS THAT MAPENZI WAS AN OPPOSITION SUPPORTER. MR LUNGU PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THESE ARE HUMAN BEINGS THAT YOU ARE ALLOWING TO BE KILLED. WHAT KIND OF A LEADER ARE YOU?
      TO MY FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS “WE CAN NOT ALLOW MAPENZIS AND ALL THE OTHERS WE HAVE LOST TO HAVE SHED THIER BLOOD IN VAIN. THE RED-REVO MUST GO ON UNTIL OUR PEOPLE ARE FREE AGAIN. WE HAVE TO REMIND OURSELVES EVERY DAY HOW MUCH WE HAVE ALL SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF LUNGU AND HIS CADRES”
      ABASH CADRE REPUBLIC
      ABASH KILLING CIVILIANS
      ABASH BAD ECONOMY AND CORRUPTION.
      NO MORE CADRES RUNNING OUR GOVERNMENT. ITS TIME TO TAKE ZAMBIA BACK.
      VIVA RED REVOLUTION
      VIVA ZAMBIA FORWARD!
      VIVA JUSTICE FOR MAPENZI!

    • Thank you Laura for articulating in this article the very thoughts I had when I heard Edgars response…. he seems to be over compensating this issue of him being humble and christian whenever he is faced with a situation that requires him to own up essentially shifting any possible responsibility. He externalizes any responsibility ….. Why cant he just say he is pushing for expedited investigations so that he can also know exactly what happened and take action thereafter …. All he is seeing in this is himself how does this influence is power position ? He completely obliterates the fact that he is the republican President and thus needs to be above this

    • MORE THAN 50 YEARS AGO, when our FOREFATHERS UNDERTOOK THE LIBERATION STRUGGLE & SHED BLOOD, they DID SO, SUCH THAT THEIR CHILDREN & GRAND GRAND CHILDREN such as MAPENZI CHIBULO COULD LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY, WHERE THEY WOULD NEVER BE AFRAID OF ANYTHING, A COUNTRY THEY WOULD FEEL SECURE IN & BE HAPPY TO CALL THE LAND OF THEIR FOREFATHERS WHO HAD SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR US!!

    • Reasons why PF will loose this election

      1. Its clear to Lungu that the Copperbelt has been lot to the opposition. Indication was the failed rally at the Ndola stadium. Lungu can not draw the numbers. Hence you will not see him there.
      2. Its most likely that they will be poor turn out in PF strongholds due to the economy and voters who do not want to vote for UPND but will not vote for PF. UPND has always recorded massive turn out in their strongholds.
      3. UPND only needs to get an extra 5 – 10% of the numbers they recorded in PF strongholds. Its clear this will happen in CB, Luapula, Eastern and Northern as well as 10 – 15% in Lusaka.
      4. PF miscalculated by choosing Inonge as running mate, she has failed to deliver the numbers. In contrast GBM despite all the negative propaganda has…

    • 5. The violence in Lusaka is a last effort by PF to preserve the last nail in the PF boat. It is clear Lungu has a hand in it. Once they loose Lusaka game is over.
      6. The seemingly snub of western accredited Ambassadors by Lungu will have an effect
      7. Yes tax has to be paid… the closure of The Post was ill timed which will backfire big time.
      8. The is a silent revolt in PF, senior party members are not campaigning
      9. The so called tribal party UPND has now spread like bush fire in all corners of Zambia. Give credit to GBM
      10. The reality is that no one is now prepared to bet their money on PF. Most business men who would fund PF like in 2011 and 2015 are simply on the sidelines. The abuse of state funds is not there because the state is broke.

EDGAR LUNGU HAS PLANTED A VERY UGLY KILLING CULTURE IN OUR COUNTRY WHICH WILL BE DIFFICULT TO ELIMINATE, ESPECIALLY IF LUNGU IS ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN POWER AFTER 11 AUGUST.

LET US ALL JOIN HANDS AND VOTE FOR CHANGE, VOTE FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM.THE POLICE OFFICER WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER SHOULD BE DISMISSED FROM DUTY IMMEDIATELY AND SHOULD BE CHARGED FOR MURDER.

A BALLOT BOX IS THERE FOR ANYONE TO EXPRESS THEIR DISCONTENT ON SOMEONE. ZAMBIA IS NOT A FAILED STATE FOR SUCH SUCH MAD BEHAVIOUR BY INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS OF INDIVIDUALS.

    c) Was the procession from the party Secretariat through Church and Cairo Roads sanctioned by the Police
    d) The slain girl lived in Chawama and the cancelled rally was goin to take place in Chawama, why was she in the procession from Rhodespark?

  8. The so-called analysis by Laura Miti about Edgar Lungu’s ‘s response is flawed in many respects. It ignores the facts on the ground. UPND cadres were under orders from the UPND leaders to attack the Police with all manner of weapons including live ammunition and went on to beat policemen after their rally was cancelled. Such anarchy, attacks on motorists, ferrying students from UNZA to riot in Cairo road in open defiance of the law are unacceptable any where in the civilised world. ECL as a christian is appalled by this behaviour and the unfortunate collateral damage caused. This reaction can hardly qualify to be described as narcissistic.

QUOTE “AS YOU KNOW ‘I’ AM SUCH A CHRISTIAN AND THIS MAKES ‘ME’ SAD.” IN OTHER WORDS- LUNGU FEELING SAD IS THE FOCUS IN THE STATEMENT AND NOT THE NATURE OF THIS TRAGEDY. HE WANTS THE LISTENER TO FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT “HE” LUNGU IS SAD NOT THAT MAPENZI IS DEAD. THAT MY DEAR TED IS A CLASSIC DEFINITION OF NARCISSISTIC!!!

  9. Lungu as Commander-in-Chief gave the Commissioner of Police an open licence to shoot to kill so Lungu should be very happy that several supporters of UPND were shot and Mapenzi was mudered in cold blood. Lungu is President of supporters of PF and not for all Zambians.. Opposition supporters like Mapenzi are killed and not afforded the protection by the President of Zambia. Kanganja will be promoted and given a salary increase and bonus for implementing the President’s directive. Lungu is a calous and heartless President who incites violence on innocent citizens. To the contrary Lungu is not a humble and Godly person as we now know. Viva HH!

      So target you insults to HH. He is the one who told you to fight with the police. If he had abide by the police directive and followed the right channel, no life would have been lost. The police obly gave you a taste of your own medicine. Recently UMPD ahd HH have started behaving like a ruling party or that HH is President. There is still a President in office. There is no power vacuum, so you be careful or you will dies for nothing. Now, will HH give Mapenzi back her life? No, he does not care. For him it is a political score to use to complain.

What threat can such a girl possibly have posed to a trained and well armed MAN?. Folks no matter what the circumstances might have been, this can not be justified.

All HH should have done was to re-inform the police accordingly and this situation would not have happened. It is the arroagance of your HH and UPND leadership who think they are above the law.

      HH wants the same status as ECL. ECL is Republican President and HH a mere opposition leader. Which policies were you going to explain. PF is already doing what you will do. That is why HH only says he will control, control PF’s plans. He should come up with his own plans and ride on PF road map.

      For me, all this happened because this is what exactly HH wanted because how can a reasonable leader put his own followers…

HH is playing dirty and I think he is not worthy of a leader, tell us HH supporters what HH has promised so far to help build the nation apart from his farms and business with his kabwalala friend GBM.

  16. Now lets set the record straight. Police decide to cancel the UPND rally in Chawama and inform the party accordingly. Now here are the facts. Police had received information of possible violence regarding this rally. They had no details but they had been reliably informedvthat something was going to happen. As things turned out, that something was an illegal procession for which UPND had not obtained a permit and had not informed the police. UPND had planned that as the rally was going on or as it was approaching the end, UPND cadres would march from their secretariat towards Chawama via the central business district CBD cairo road. The plan was to catch the police unawares as they would be overstretched too. The timing was to cause maximum chaos in CBD as this was rush hour. Violent…

  18. …planned violence and even causing riots cannot be ruled out. Unfortunately the rally wss cancelled by police which did not give UPND orgamisers enough time to cancel the procession. That explains why the procession was from the UPND secretariat and the participants were not the ones at the cancelled rally in Chawama but a different group of cadtes. The cadres from the secretariat thought this was a legal pocesdion as they were just following orders. They had no idea that they may be confronted by riot police. As usual the cadres dared and attacked the police thinking that it was business as usual and the lolice would not react.

And it seems your reactions toward any comment indicates your party inclination. My advice is that before you post anything, be critical and view things as they are. This media could be very beneficial to educate the general public on facts.

    For instance, I have three analytical questions concerning the shooting.
    1. Why the police presence?
    2. If the deceased lady was one of the cadres, why would the police officer only target a lady? While, I have seen fiercely looking cadres in all political parties.

  27. I have a question for one Escobar Chikopo Lungusha, why does he force himself or impose christianity on himself by a mere declaration? If indeed being a Godly person was by mere declarations, all of us can wake up one day and declare ourselves what we are not. For example, a medical Doctor can wake up and declare himself a mining engineer, a police officer can wake up and declare himself a pilot, and if they did, will just that declaration make them what they have declared?
    Are there no qualifications to becoming a mining engineer or pilot and many more? What about christianity, are there no scriptural qualifications to become one? For example Do onto others what you would like done onto you. Luke 6:31. The children of the devil and the children of God are distinguished by their works,…

There are actually more scriptural qualifications, not a mere pretense of tu ma reading glasses and a Bible in hand in church at am a Christian.

  28. Ba Laura, permits are not cast in stone. As such, there is no prescribed time for cancelling a permit. The police conducted their intel, and found that the atmosphere was not conducive for the UPND to hold a rally. For your own information, I happened to be in Chawama 2 hours before the rally was schedule to begin, and I understand why the police decided to cancel the permit, at least by discernment. Most of the roads were barricaded with all manner of objects (stones, tyres, broken down-vehicles etc) by the locals, who among other things, demanded an apology from the UPND for saying that the PF had done nothing o show for in Chawama. They vowed that they would not allow the UPND to use the roads that had been constructed by the PF, because they felt insulted by the remarks of the UPND…

  32. Another interpretation of your watermelon analogy could be that the majority of the voters are PF (the green), while the biggest proportion of the opposition voters is UPND (red), with the other opposition parties being the seeds in the watermelon. So, come 11 August 2016, PF will emerge victorious!

  33. When are you chaps going to grow up? Simply stop attending rallies. Ichimpwena is not good. Just wait for 11 August to cast your vote simple. Anyway, “common man” is difficult to teach manners.

  34. The article is most appreciated and very clearly understood. Thanks Laura for your opinion of which most of it, I share. It will be interesting to ascertain how a rubber bullet transformed into a live bullet and also how armed UPND cadres are the ones that blew up Mapenzi’s brain. Mourning Mapenzi with respect and dignity is obligatory and we shall comment intensely after our able-bodied Inspector of Police releases his forensic report. May peace prevail henceforth.

  35. its funny how politics can make a Christian nation go against each other, if I had to vote I would vote for me cause nothing special about both candidates. people are killing each other over other peoples success yes we want change but do we need it in a violent way no.so guys you people arguing about two individuals who probably would never give you anything or even shake your hand to say well done here is a job or money to build your family. only thing ever worth looking forward in life are the people who really matter to us. HH and Lungu are making Zambian politics seem immature and unprofessional they disgracing a sweet and loving nation. I ain’t voting for no one if I can’t get a vote for me, i pay tax so am more important to the nation. rather Put God as my president then thirsty…
