The Patriotic Front in Mpongwe district has expressed concern over threats made on state witnesses by of the Bulima speaking people.

This is in a matter involving UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba who were jointly charged with unlawful assembly and seditious practices.

Mpongwe district PF information and publicity secretary Dickson Munemesha has accused the traditional leader of intimidating and threatening state witnesses against testifying against Mr Hichilema and his vice president held a meeting in Mpongwe last month.

In a statement made available to ZANIS, Mr Munemesha said chiefs have a duty to desist from partisan politics in order to spearhead development in their respective chiefdoms.

He further stated that traditional leaders have no authority to interfere with operations of the courts of law and its enforcement agents.

He disclosed that Chiefteness Lesa has continued to agitate the political situation in the area which has resulted in tension between the opposition and the ruling party officials.

Mr Munemesha has hence urged the traditional leader to step down from her throne to join active politics.

But when reached for a comment, the palace chairperson David Muwaya refuted allegations made by the PF and added that the chiefdom was enjoying a good relationship with the leadership in the district.

    • “…charged with unlawful assembly and seditious practices…”
      It’s not a crime to meet people who want to listen to your alternative ideas and telling them that there is no republican president in Zambia. Who doesn’t know that? When did the ConCourt sit and declare that Edgar Lungu was duly elected??!!

    • In this chipantepante PF government there are two charges that have become synonymous to opposition leaders whenever they move. These charges are unlawful assembly and seditious practice. The next thing they will do is to arrest HH of unlawful assembly at his house with his family

    • Just like with Unip, PF will fall one day because we the people do not agree with its brutal misrule. It may take 5 or 20 years, but PF is destined to the dust bin of history.

  2. Please ba mfumu don’t bring yourself self to the level of ordinary people. All parties have members who belong to your kingdom. Your job is to counsel them all as your own children.

  5. I agree with you Bululu, PF is so scared of everything, thats why they are busy issuing warnings, arresting people at will. RB their mentor would have said “tinamipasa u presidency, tisiyeni teka, nicani ca mene cavbuta”.

  6. The gov’t means good for every Zambian, they have a Mandel to rule we need to support them to make things easy for them.
    Any one who comes in between the gov’t and the people is a thief , must be punished destabilisation of the nation don’t bring development .
    That is why the law is there to punish evil doers and not the innocent.

  8. LT you need a paradigm shift, we are sick and tired of reading the same news everyday HH,GBM,. elections have passed and the winner is ECL period. You need to expand your horizons, tell us about international news, how Zambia is currently preforming economically, start reporting about real issues Zambia is currently facing such as unemployment etc. You need to dig dipper. Let sleeping DOGS lay.

  10. IF A CHIEF OR CIVIL SERVAT IS A NON PARTIZAN THEN WHY DO THEY VOTE? ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE POLITICAL AND IF ONE DOES NOT SIDE WITH YOU THEN YOU BETTER KNOW THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN YOU AND MUST CHECK YOURSELF THAN FORCING PEOPLE TO SAY THEY MUST LOVE ME WHEN THEY DONT LOVE YOU.
    LUNGU IS SEATING ON A HOT SEAT BECAUSE OF MONEY AND NOT LEADERSHIP. HE IS A FAILED LEADERS. LOOK AT THOSE HE HAS PUT IN HIGH PORTFOLIOS, KAMBWILI, KAMPYONGO, MWAMBA, FATHERLESS FRANK BWALYA , MUMBI PHIRI, DAVIS CHAMA- ALL THESE WILL NEVER UNITE ZAMBIANS BUT SCARE AND SCATTER THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE TERRIBLE EVIL TRIBALISTS.
