  1. May HER SOUL REST IN PEACE!!!

    MAPENZI, we will never forget you – WE WILL FIGHT FOR A BETTER COUNTRY THAT YOUR SON WILL LIVE & GROW IN!!

    Farewell young soul – Gone too soon!

    • THE POLICE OFFICERS LIVE WITH US AND DRINK ALCOHOL WITH OUR PEOPLE IN OUR COMPOUNDS. LET THE PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITIES ALSO START KILLING THESE POLICE OFFICERS IF THIS THE KIND OF ZAMBIA THAT LUNGU WANTS. SINCE WE ARE A PEACEFUL COUNTRY, I AM SURE MOST READERS WILL SAY NO TO THE SUGGESTION. THIS IS BECAUSE FIGHTING AND POLITICAL UPHEAVALS ARE NOT IN OUR DNA AS ZAMBIANS. ONLY LUNGU HAS INTRODUCED THIS EVIL AND BARBARIC KILLING BEHAVIOR IN OUR COUNTRY, JUST BECAUSE OF HIS OBSESSION FOR POWER. THIS IS SLAVERY THAT WE ARE IN UNDER EDGAR LUNGU’S REIGN. EMANCIPATE YOURSELVES FROM THIS SLAVERY FELLOW ZAMBIANS BY VOTING FOR CHANGE, VOTING FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM. VIVA UPND VIVA! VIVA HH VIVA! AMANDLA!

    • Umunani waya. It is really sad losing such a young and promising life in the name of politics. Mapenzi should serve as a lesson to all young people not to be used by power hungry politicians. The HH she died for will soon forget about her, while her family has lost a sister, daughter, mother and niece in her. Wise up people, there is more to life than politics. Mhsrip

    • @Saulosi – Really? If a PF cadre was killed would you comment on how she would soon be forgotten by ECL? The girl was killed! She didn’t die for HH. She didn’t die for anyone. If she knew that by going out that day she was going to die I doubt she would have been there. This dimension has been introduced by a corrupt police not by HH. She was unjustly killed! She died for Nobody!!!

    • You selfsame Saulosi,how dare you are passing a joke on the dead.I have observed with utter dismay that cadres think that difference in party allegiance is permanent enmity.Are we not pursuing the same dream that is to see a better country, developed and peaceful?, yet cadres go for each others throat all because one belongs to the chidunu party and another to an arm pointing forward party.All the cadres should understand is that they are just stepping heads for someone and his children to be walking on red carpets and dining in expensive hotels while them will retreat to their ramshackle and live on $1 a day or K10 a day below the selfsame poverty datum line.I thank you

    • Saulosi, if we had people like you in the 60’s Zambia would still be ruled by outside forces. Sad that you and the people you support find it easy to kill others.

    • OMG, where have I been? So ZP committed such a heinous crime in the name of maintaining “law and order”?
      Or sheer trigger happiness? This is certainly not the Zambia I left and it hurts to learn what has become of my motherland… God help us……!

    • MAINTAINING LAW AND ORDER IS A GOVERNANCE ISSUE AND NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CHURCH – THE THUGS FOR WHOM THOSE PRAYERS IN CHURCH ARE SAID ARE NOT THERE TO LISTEN TO THEM. WE NEED VISIBLE, EFFECTIVE AND IMPATIAL POLICING !!!

    • Cadres are the most dullest individuals in Zambia…there is absolutely no need to follow these **** around to campaigns let them debate on radio or TV.. what more convincing do you want if you have decided on a candidate. Look at this young woman murdered for nothing and leaving her son alone…is HH or PF going to look after him? No they will forget about him in a month.

  2. Innocently killed just for political gain. An innocent soul. I wish some wishful lawyers can take up the case and sue stupid lungu and his thugs for wrongful death

  3. ..a lot of questions on the wall….why why why how how…using live armour on such a crowd..??..and authorities are taking the situation as ‘business as usual’….if the cop who pulled the trigger is identified and punished by the courts of law together with the commanding officer in-charge of that operation may send a deterrent signal to trigger happy officers…..its very hurting

  4. It always breaks my heart when any life is lost.
    That is all I can say.
    I will not make any political comment on this.
    All I will say is may God be with the family and grant comfort.
    This is very sad on our soil.
    Let us all love one another and seek peace and pursue it.

  5. By cancelling a previously agreed rally at the last hour after people had mobilised was a setup by the PF ploice to provoke the crowd.

    Every police officer knows about crowd control and crowd incitement to not cancel a rally at the last hour.

  6. My Heart bleeds

    I met the peaceful procession and when I saw the PF (from Intercity) trailing behind I knew something will happen. JUST NOT DEATH OF AN INNOCENT LITTLE SOUL.

  7. WISHING THE BERIEVED FAMILY THE STRENGTH THAT WILL MAKE THEM PULL THROUGH THIS TRYING MOMENT. IS THERE ANY WAY WE CAN HELP FOR SUCH VICTIMS REGARDLESS OF OF THEIR POLITICAL AFFILIATIONS? Go Well Mapenzi

  8. Fairwell Red Revolution Queen, you wanted a bright future for your baby boy, you wanted a Zambia were you baby boy will receive free education, good health care, freedom of expression and movement, that is the only fight you waged against this evil government and they saw it fit to put you down, BUT ONE DAY FREEDOM.

  9. Bane efyo mwayamba ukucita ifi? Nishi kanshi teti mucite fye ifya fikansa munshila isuma ukucila ukwipaya! Zambia should not be Uganda because its composed of so many tribes whilst Uganda has two major tribes the same with Zimbabwe. Lets learn to core exist.

  10. Floating on the wings of the white dove. Gone to a better place that I know. The sun will set again but alas, there will never ever be a you anymore. Farewell, farewell Mapenzi.

    God gave us this beautiful country Zambia but as we look around us, there is so some much hate amongst ourselves. ‘Let’s Tyende Pamodzi’ because we are ONE and Zambia is for every Zambian and all those who live in it.

  11. THE POLICE OFFICERS LIVE WITH US AND DRINK ALCOHOL WITH OUR PEOPLE IN OUR COMPOUNDS. LET THE PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITIES ALSO START KILLING THESE POLICE OFFICERS IF THIS THE KIND OF ZAMBIA THAT LUNGU WANTS. SINCE WE ARE A PEACEFUL COUNTRY, I AM SURE MOST READERS WILL SAY NO TO THE SUGGESTION. THIS IS BECAUSE FIGHTING AND POLITICAL UPHEAVALS ARE NOT IN OUR DNA AS ZAMBIANS. ONLY LUNGU HAS INTRODUCED THIS EVIL AND BARBARIC KILLING BEHAVIOR IN OUR COUNTRY, JUST BECAUSE OF HIS OBSESSION FOR POWER. THIS IS SLAVERY THAT WE ARE IN UNDER EDGAR LUNGU’S REIGN. EMANCIPATE YOURSELVES FROM THIS SLAVERY FELLOW ZAMBIANS BY VOTING FOR CHANGE, VOTING FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM. VIVA UPND VIVA! VIVA HH VIVA! AMANDLA!

  12. MHSRIP… Gone to soon . we will continue the struggle . Today its you , it might be me tomorrow because we have trigger happy police officers and bad governance. farewell ma sister till we meet again.

  13. GO WELL MY SISTER , BUT I WILL AVENGE FOR YOU.YOUR SON WILL BE WITH US OUR GOD WILL BE WITH HIM.LUNGU AND PF WILL YOU HAVE MADE A MISTAKE.WE DONT DIE LIKE FLIES.

  14. How does a normal policeman shoot an unarmed Young Lady in the head. Not even armed criminals like Mailoni brothers are shot in the head. No matter how we differ in our political views, nothing deserves a loss of a life especially a young lady like Mapenzi.

    Only a mad person can support such barbaric actions. One day its gonna be you or your daughter protesting about say high mealie-meal prices or other sensitve matter.

    The police officer needs to be identified & brought to book in a court of law.

    Police crowd management needs to be revamped. Better used stun-grenades, tear-gas, horse mounted police etc NOT AK-47’s like its a warzone.

    A few days after Zambians were complaining about Louise-Linton claiming Zambia is peaceful. But now its clear she wasnt entirely far from the…

  15. HH & his freind GBM will never rule Zambia upon my dead body. ECL is only currently chosen one by God to rule Zambia. Let them waste their stolen and blood money.

  16. this goes to my brothers & sisters in PF & UPND that these leaders are not worthy dying for. what happened yesterday is a clear testimony when ichilema straight from the funeral house flew to CB SHOUTING ZAMBIA.. ZAMBIA The the people answered forward. even before burring the corpse, this goes to show that hh does not care who dies his aim is to reach plot 1

    • This is not an HH issue. This is Zambia’s issue. This small thinking ought to stop. Zambia got violated. If you can’t see it you have a problem. We have been wronged. Partisan politics aside. Our little sister was killed. For what?

  17. If Lungu is a true republican president for all Zambians he should take time in his busy schedule to attend the funeral as well as Bo Inonge wina being aspiring candidates wanting rule mother Zambia for the next five years. it’s time to put aside your political endaevours and morn the young lady.Withount doing this you will show the Zambian people that your intrest is only to rule them with out caring for whatever happens to there lives.

    • A real man, family man who is also president should have stepped up and made a statement by now. This sham of a president is mute on all issues that matter. Just like sat on the case of who killed Ruth Mbandu. Lungu was home affairs minister. He had the names of the perpetrators. To this day he has chosen to remain mute. Perhaps he will speak when Tasila mysteriously dies. Then he will feel what other parents feel.

  18. This is what Edgar has turned our country into in just one year? This evil man needs to be removed on 11 August 2016. PF is behaving like the Afrikaner Government during Apartheid. Remember the Sharpeville massacre? LUNGU MUST FALL!

  19. Very very sad indeed, will justice be served or it will end just like Ruth Mbangu were the murderer is still rooming the streets? MHSRIP.

  20. the problem with up nd down cadres is that you want some one to think the way you are thinking. this attitude of not tolerating different views from other pipo is the causing this violence by upnd cadres who happens to be the most violent opposition cadres in Zambia’s history. any way this was prophesied hh & scot that there will be Armageddon & havoc respectively

  21. SWMOOTH CRIMINAL EDGAR CHAKOLWA JAMESON KAMINAMINSA LUNGU SHOULD BE WIPED OUT IMMEDIATEL, OR HE WILL WIPE OUT ALL OF US ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. HIS OBSESSION FOR POWER IS SO DEADLY. WE HAVE A RED DEVIL SATANIST JIHADIST MOSLEM AT STATE HOUSE WHO BELIEVES IN SHEDDING OF INNOCENT BLOOD IN ORDER TO REMAIN IN POWER. LUNGU HAS BEEN ILL ADVISED. THE FASTER WE STEP IN TO THROW THIS GUY OUT OF STATE HOUSE THE BETTER. LUNGU IS HOLDING US HOSTAGES IN OUR OWN COUNTRY. THIS DEVIL MUST DIE!

  22. It sad to have lost such a wonderful and productive young girl in our Nation by the people who could have defended her from criminals. Please this is a christian nation where every Zambian should live in peace and unite as “One Zambia One Nation.”

  23. In the first place why did the Inspector General of Police allow the cops to use live ammunition??They simply intended to kill. In other countries it could have been either the IG resigning on his own or the President firing him instantly so that in future people are more careful. It is a rotten society we are living in.

  24. Politicians are not worth dying for.my weapon is my vote not violence,how sad for the little boy its a pain known by us who knows what to lose a parent is like.Anyway rest in peace dear and let it be a lesson to others.

  25. Good job Lusaka Times. Your headlines puts it very well. “Murdered”. The murderer has to be brought to book. Zambians take note we will need evidence at the Hague.

  26. Kanamwana, just dying fo nothing. Ba upnd muleichindika. U will just b dying fo nothing, meanwhile hh & gbv wil continue to steal from zambians. They r lying to u that they wil fix shiiiit, gbv was senior minister not mo than 2 yrs ago, what did he do fo the pipo? Nothing. Only he got tenders from Defence to Zesco. HH sold parasyatals to himself, not to Zedians. To himself at give away prices. And now u r dying fo them to steal mo. Good luck!

  27. MAY THE BLOOD OF MAPENZI AND UNZA STUDENT BE ON PF THUGS AND THEIR LEADER. THE LEADER WHO HAS NO VISION AND WHO IS PLANNING TO PUT BOMB AND GUNS IN HH AND GBM’S YARDS. IF YOU A FAILURE ACCEPT IT AND DON’T FORCE THINGS BECAUSE VERY SOON YOU DYING.

  28. THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA DEMAND JUSTICE. WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT ONE OF THE FIRST TASKS THAT THE NEW GOVERNMENT WILL PERFORM IS THAT OF SETTING UP A COMMISSION OF INQUIRY. THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE ATROCITIES SHALL AND MUST FACE JUSTICE. LET ALL CADRES BE FORE WARNED. WE WILL NOT LET THESE DEEDS GO UN PUNISHED.
    VIVA RED REVOLUTION
    VIVA ZAMBIA FORWARD

  29. Very sad. Let her death never be forgotten. but this evil @Saulosi is as evil as the police who killed Mampezi.

  30. @ Jack, I am a passionate PF supporter and has been one for a while but the recent developments under PF watch are challenging my christian values and morals. When I vote, I must vote wisely guarding against endorsing violence with my vote. Our congress which elected ECL in Kabwe was violent and the same violence is now engulfing the country. I personally saw bus loads of riffraff s being ferried to Kabwe to perpetuate mayhem in 2015. if we don’t arrest this violent situation, our cherished peace will be history and violence will be a permanent feature. The closure or muzzling of the post paper is very disturbing. Zambia is bigger than PF or UPND. I cannot personally sacrifice the entire country just to enthrone an individual. As a christian, i can’t put so much value in an…

  31. There is no dignity to die whilst you are a cadre. Guys, educated people are not attending rallies on weekdays, just get an education and live your life.

  32. How can some people interpret this as dying for HH or a politician? She happened to be a UPND supporter but was brutally murdered in cold blood by a trigger happy police that is devoid of any crowd management skills, human rights sense, professionalism or common sense. It is perverse to start looking for some reasons to place a kind of blame on HER for getting killed. She was murdered by police propping up a decadent regime. Shooting someone unarmed and running away from you. What madness. It shouldn’t only be a head, but HEADS should roll.

  33. SONTAPO EPO WABOMBA = Mapenzi !!!!

    Twasontapo epo ba PF mwa bomba = Mapenzi (MHSRIP). Friday 8th July will go down in Zambian history.
    Ba Lungu Mwa bombeni !!!!

    Friday 8th = National Day of Morning in memory of Mapenzi

  34. Parents and guardians, when you hear that HH is in town, lock up.your daughters. Young Mapenzi is one life too many.
    At the time Mapenzi was dying, HH’s son was doing his biology homework and a nephew ?

  35. This is what happens When PF and their supporters realizes that they only have half a brain and less knowledge on how they can prove themselves powerful, this half brain PF police decided to kill this wise young lady.shame indeed!:-( PF leader has a history of alcoholism, how much brain does he have left to generate new initiatives to solve Zambia’s problems? ??whatever development he has completed in this short term was started by the late president period.

  36. BA SATA, WAKE UP AND SEE WHAT YOU LEFT US WITH. GUY SCOTT, WE SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO YOU. YOU MEANT WELL FOR ZAMBIA. MAPENZI’S DEATH IS VERY VERY PAINFUL.
