President Edgar Lungu vowed that he will not allow lawlessness in the country. President Lungu says he is aware of a political scheme to instill fear and bring about anarchy in the country. Speaking when he toured Katambalala Market in Lusaka’s Bauleni Compound that has been gutted, President Lungu said he is convinced that the move to burn the market is politically motivated.

President Lungu says he will allow the law enforcement agencies to investigate the matters fully.

Last night the deport used by the marketeers to keep their goods in Bauleni township at Katambalala market was set ablaze, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.

Police spokesperson said the incident occurred today the 23rd August, 2016 around 01:00 hours.

He said the value of the properties burnt is yet to be ascertained as owners are still reporting the values of the properties that were burnt.

He further noted that police officers visited the scene and discovered four bottles which are suspected of containing sand and petrol, affirming that all the bottles have since been picked for examination.

“in Lusaka we received a report from Miriam Mumba aged 33 years of a named house number Bauleni compound who reported that unknown persons set ablaze her grass fence and later they went to set ablaze the make shift deport used by marketers to keep their goods at Katambalala market in Bauleni compound” He said

Meanwhile, Mr. Hamoonga also revealed that seven makeshift stalls made of planks and tents were this morning burnt by unknown people around 02:00 hours along Mumbwa road opposite Nyangu filling station.

He said no goods were burnt as owners removed their merchandise from the makeshift stalls after knocking off.

“The fire was discovered by Police Officers who were patrolling the area and later alerted the fire brigade who managed to put off the fire. The value of the construction materials used is yet to be ascertained as the owners are still reporting. Investigations in the matter are ongoing” Mr. Hamoonga said

    PF CADRES on Sunday night carried out a series of petrol bomb attacks in Kitwe on institutions they perceive to be their enemies.

    And the PF cadres also petrol-bombed the UPND secretariat in Chachacha township where property worth thousands of kwacha was burnt.?

    Around 22:00 hours on Sunday, about four cadres in an unregistered Toyota Corolla parked in front of the Post Newspapers’ entrance and threw petrol bombs in the newspaper’s premises in an attempt to burn down the building.

    The cadres, who were hurling insults at the…

    • And this hypocrite says ” Edgar Lungu vowed that he will not allow lawlessness in the country…. Lungu says he is aware of a political scheme to instill fear and bring about anarchy in the country”…

      LUNGU, YOU ARE THE ONE THAT BROUGHT THIS LAWLESSNESS TO A PEACEFUL ZAMBIA!. It started in Kabwe and has been here since you grabbed State House with pangas!

      The political scheme to instill fear and bring about anarchy in the country is YOUR PLAN JUST TO STAY IN POWER AND COVER UP THE K23 MILLION YOU HAVE STOLEN!

      Zambians want PEACE. Look what your GREED has caused in Zambia.

    • mmm they will just sort you out just like the college boy who had insulted the late M Sata. You think by insulting you will be heard. It won’t pay. These gadgets have unique IP numbers. What is an IP number (IP address)? Every computer (host) on the Internet is identified by an IP number; Every IP number is different – same applies to phones and Tablets; IMEI number is unique. These numbers can be used to locate who ever sent a message or a call even the position. Am just enlightening you. Peace be with you.

  4. Seriously what is Lungu trying to do? You have already tarnished your reputation. This is like being a manger in a restaurant and people complain or your staff does something wrong and your try to use what we call “service recovery” in order to win back your guests. Pf has already done enough damage to the nation and a risk to national security. Why is he even there? Has he still refused to hand over power? This ka guy is a walking time bomb just waiting to explode. He can never be trusted and should not be allowed at Statehouse. Silencing the media may have always worked for the Museveni’s of Uganda but we Zambians will not tolerate it. We voted for you before but now have a change of heart and want something new and a fresh start in building our nation.

  5. Charity begins from Home! Lungu should set a good example and step down and allow the Speaker of Parliament to Act as President pending the Concourt disposing off the Petetion. Lungu is In breach of the Constitution since Friday 19 August 2016 when UPND successfully filed its Petetion with Concourt. Lungu should lead by example and stop breaking the law. Lungu’s actions since the PF Convention in 2015 promote lawlessness in Zambia. Without Rule of Law and respect for our Constitution Zambia will degenerate into a lawless failed state like Zimbabwe. That is where Lungu wants to take us. This must be stopped without fail.

  6. Zambia how did we end up with such an incompetent lazy bum…the caliber of leadership today both in opposition and ruling party leaves much to be desired. Who is he to ALLOW or DISALLOW…we have Police for a reason and there he is dressed in a suit as if he is working when he is technically not a President at this point in time!!

  7. In what capacity was Mr Lungu speaking? Is there another glitch in the constitution? Who is supposed to ensure the incumbent steps down when there is a petition? Surely, should it be to the good will of the incumbent ? Where is the speaker?

    • The Speaker is doing what most so called professionals are doing protecting the selfish short term interests instead of protecting the constitution.

  8. These amature schemes by PF started long time ago…..We all remember the bweengwa kidnappings were PF and GRZ officials were supposed to have been kidnapped by UPND comandos then rescued in dramatic op by ZP we remember inonge winas house being burned down by alleged UPND only to find drunk bumbling PF kaponyas wanting.

    We remember how they searched and charged GBM with training and arming UPND comandos how to use boxing gloves and golf clubs to take on the zambia defence forces…….

    There wild cheap allegations are too many to mention…

  12. We have had elections before. We have had HH , GBM, and Scott and sampa before in elections.

    We have never had this level of violence before. Only when lungu comes along do see unpresidented levels of violence.

    Just look how he is refusing to hand power to the speaker as per consitution. Or how he illigally used public funds with ministers to campain for him.

    The man is a dangerous thug. His fraud conviction was not a fluke. He is a lawless gangster.

  14. This dull and incompetent “LAWYER” does not.even understand the Constitution that he himself signed! He thinks he is still President!

    Lungu, please understand that legally you ceased to be President immediately a petition was lodged with the Constitutional Court. You are just plain Mr. LUNGU until that is resolved. All you can “allow or not allow” is the same as any other Citizen of Zambia can.

  15. The winner of these elections is he who is going to let go for the sake of peace in our country, and the same shall be the hero. God will be with the same that shall give up the fight that has seen so many souls die and property destroyed. In the bible we are told of two women who claimed a child and an arbitrator came and said the only solution was to divide the child into two. The legitimate mother let go of the child. Who is the real Zambian between HH and Lungu who will let go for the sake of peace. Christianity is at test bane. Do not trust the men of Gold but a real christian will treasury the many Zambian lives. God bless Zambia.

  18. PF could eqyally be responsible for this. Why mention its political infuriated. Why not allowing the police to find the criminals behind it. We are tired of your dirty schemes of violence and lawlessness. What goes round comes round. You forced you way into state house with the support of men with pangas, now you are pretended like you know nothing about the panga culture and the like. You hypocrite.

  21. LUNGU has no authority to talk about lawlessness when he himself refuses to follow the law by not stepping down for Dr. Matibini according to the constitution. It’s the case of a Crab telling its child to walk straight when it also walks sideways.

    MAX CHONGO has been released from custody without charge in spite of the serious offence of attempted murder yet UPND cadres were last week sentenced to 7 years with hard labour for assault.

    PF cadres have burnt POST offices & UPND Secretariat (which is 50m from Riverside Police Station) but no one has been arrested. The law is being used selectively.

    UPND marketeers are being chased away from markets.

    A GOOD LEADER UNITES. A BAD LEADER DIVIDES TO RULE. MXXXM!!! CHOPET!!!
