UPND Media reports that HH and GBM teargassed on their way to a funeral

Share

Zambia Police service yesterday afternoon fought running battles with Monze residents after residents attempted to greet and console their leaders, HH and GBM, having being released from the cells.

UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema and his Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, this morning, left for Southern province for a family funeral but were greeted with teargas canisters when residents turned up to have a glance of their leaders by the roadside.

Meanwhile, emotions in the nation are beginning to flare given the dictatorial brutal approach Edgar LUNGU is administering on political opponents.

The residents who vowed to put an end to what they called foolish oppressive schemes by Edgar LUNGU took to the streets in support of opposition leaders.

When police saw that the residents were becoming more hostile, they ran for their lives into near-by houses for refuge while others cried for help.

  1. Has anybody ever gone to attend a relative funeral in a convoy like that, through the city centre and disrupting public traffic? What gives?

    Just asking.

    • When you going for burial from UTH mortuary, do you pass through air without passing the township of and
      if people cued up along Burma Road, is that that an offence sure?
      People of Zambia must start realizing where we are going and eventually Zambia shall be divided like Sudan.
      PF cadres and leadership are rotten to such an extent that one could be denied to attend his own funeral.

    • PF, Edgar, Daily Nation, Daily Mail ZNBC ZANIS….all these now share the crown of propaganda. These people think they’ll never die someday. Instead of fostering good leadership look what they are doing. Planting the seed of hate. You wonder why some people celebrated when Sata died and why some mourned him.

      This won’t be different if Lungu dies…. some will mourn him, some will celebrate & even be relieved. The seed of hate has been sown

    • ALungu and his PF police force (not service) are now suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Each time they hear HH and GBM are going somewhere they start sh1ting in their pants and tell police to brutalise citizens exercising their chioce of a leader and party to support.

      This is just pure police brutality copied from Mugabe. But even mugabe is a bit sensible for he does not send his minions to brutalise people attending a funeral.

      So when Lungu goes to the funeral no people will be allowed to line up and greet him.

  2. What is upnd media m****** mwe. Why can’t you cover hh fairly. When it comes to lungu you seem to know exactly what that little chap is doing. Hh has more than half the country’s support so why can’t you cover him fairly

    • WHICH HALF OF THE COUNTRY ? GO TO SCHOOL AND LEARN HOW TO COUNT. IS THE POPULATION OF SOUTHERN, WESTERN AND N/WESTERN , HALF OF ZAMBIA ? YOU, NEZ ARE A PATHETIC U P ND LIAR.

    • If its not half why did you resort to rigging to win you would have gladly taken your majority to court
      you cheats.You stole a poisoned chalice you wont have a peaceful 5yrs you shall keep seeing shadows of HH & GBM even in your toilets ,no day lapses without you mentioning their names.The world is watching your failure with alarm.Hardly under 5yrs you have brought a country which was a functional democracy into a failed state where cadres are more powerful than state police.State intelligence have become promoters of tribalism & gossipers what a shame.Colonial rule respected African rights better.

  3. This HH lunatic is becoming a nuisance. Something must be done. Take him to chombokaila for a year so he regains his senses

  4. IS LUNGU AND HIS POLICE SURELY NORMAL? WHY FOLLOWING HH AND GBM WHERE EVER THEY GO? THIS MEANS THAT LUNGU KNOWS WELL THAT HE HOLDS AN OFFICE WHICH IS NOT HIS AND IF HE TRULLY WON THE ELECTION HE WOULD HAVE JUST STOPPED CHASING UP HH AND GBM WHERE EVER THEY GO.
    I FORESEE CHAOSE COMING UP SOON. CIZENS ARE MANY AND LUNGU MUST KNOW THAT SOLDIERS CAN NOT OPEN FIRE ON ITS OWN CITIZENS.

  5. Not necessary to go through towns like that-horns honking and all. Not necessary to tear gas them but I can understand the Police-such actions get people excited and they end up rioting.

    If I was officer in charge, I would ask for permission to withdraw my men. If these people riot, so be it-they would be causing damage to their own property/possessions. These two have got to grow up and stop seeking sympathy and abusing these poor villagers. Look at that innocent woman who fell off a moving van! There is nothing to be proud of here.

  6. HH and GBM are public figures and everywhere they will go in the country people are bound to follow them and want to great them. SO the police must exercise caution when dealing with the people in such cases. Those have followers just like some influential people in PF, you cannot avoid people entirely even if you are going to the funeral. Word will go round that kantwa is in town and the masses will pour in to check you out. The police should also not risk their lives for no concrete reason.

  7. Funny “When police saw that the residents were becoming more hostile, they ran for their lives into near-by houses for refuge while others cried for help”.

  8. If anyone here can condone this case, then its high time honestly reflected on where we are heading to.

    I expect the big mouth Bwalya and the like to condemn this act. I would also expect the President to condemn this if he really means it when he talks about preserving peace.

  9. Why is this government worstin too much time on HH and GBM when people a in high poverty level we are having electricity and water problem in but fools are not saying anything what a stupid government we have

  10. when we tell you that Lungu is a Christian hypocrite, a thug and evil, this is it. what evidence do we need? I challenge Christians for Lungu to repent for supporting an evil man. how can they justify teargassing peaceful people? Shame on you PF cadres

  11. This paranoia by PF is now ggetting out of hand.

    HH and GBM are public figures of course people will congregate where ever they are
    Can you demand that no one greets them ?

    It seems lungu is hunted by the stealing of votes.

    And by the way HH called ECZ and the concourt judges corrupt having been paid by lungu , when are they sueing him ?

  12. I would want to know what the Christians for Lungu will be praying for on the National Day of Prayer. That it is correct for Lungu to Bribe his way to heaven. If you have the Holy Spirit in you Christians for Lungu. You will know that no one goes to the Father except through Jesus Christ. Now you cannot advise your master that you do not go to the Father in heaven through bribery. What type of teaching do you give him?

  13. The Bible says that out of the abundance of heart the mouth speaks. In Mr Lungu’s heart the abundance is bribery so he speaks

  14. Again source is not credible. By the way it appears HH anGBM are now Siamese twins. Hope they are not sharing one bed.

  15. LEARN FROM MWANAWASA’S GOVERNANCE STYLE. SATA WOULD DO ALL SORTS OF THINGS BUT NEVER AT ONE POINT DID HE TREAT HIM IN THE MANNER PF ARE. IGNORE THESE GUYS OR YOU RISK BECOMING IRRELEVANT WHILST U MAKE THE RELEVANT. NOBODY THROWS STONES AT A TREAT THAT HAS NO FRUITS

    • Ba Jay jay are honest with yourself? Mwanaw incarcerated Sata when Sata became too vocal over Mwanawasa ‘s ascendancy to the presidency. Next he harrassed Chiluba because Chiluba had proposed a list for cabinet ministers with Chitalu Sampa as VP. When KK became critical of Mwanawasa, he threatened KK that he would crush him. He sidelined one of his aides when he discovered that this man hailed from Mansa. In fact the discussion went like this : Levy …what tribe are you? Aide ….Bemba. Bemba from where? From Mansa. So you’re relatives with Dr Chiluba. Even Mr Kavindele knows about this.

    • Much as we don’t condone teargasing people, this was a dangerous thing to do on a public road, especially that majority of those were kids.

  16. It is said that “the way it is given is worth more than the gift itself” Equally the conduct of the two criminal suspects leaves much to desired. Who would want to emulate Boko Haram?

  17. HH IS A DARLING. HH IS ADORABLE TO MILLIONS OF ZAMBIANS, AND THERE IS NOTHING LUNGU CAN DO TO CHANGE THIS FACT. TO MOST OF US, HH IS OUR PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. NOW IS TIME FOR A REVOLUTION AGAINST A REPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT.

  18. Why is it that where ever they go its catch him ?,you people always say hh will never rule, but why chasing after him if he’s not a threat, are you scared of him ?. Return the people’s riberty you’ve restrained let us express our freedom, give it to the people they want to Cheer for the one they voted for, just like you have your own people Ba pf MWe!.

  19. What most Zambians don’t know is that…Democracy means you are free to demonstrate anywhere as along there is no violence or damaging properties involved…These pf chaps are now driving Zambia into another Zimbabwe…Shame poor Zambians cant see…

  20. Lunges’s brains is destroyed by beer and he can’t reason well. a wise leader with wise advisors would have learned to treat GBM and HH well. then in future HH and GBM can treat him well. people’s enthusiasm here should tell a leaders that he can’t rule by an iron fist. if Lungu thinks that firing tear gas will silence Zambians,he is mistaken and he is building his own grave

  21. WHY does Mr. HH and GBM need a CONVOY to attend a funeral ? Aren’t they supposed to be going there as normal ordinary citizens while sitting comfortable in the LUXURIOUS CARS, as opposed being in a STANDING and waving at EVERYBODY,(CAMPAIGN STYLE). GRANDIOSITY is a Mental disorder, please get THERAPY. Anyway Sorry you both attracted wrong attention that resulted a bad outcome in being TEARGASSED. Please police dont pay attention to these guys sometimes. They are grown up well calculated people. They even know the cause and effect even before they indulge in the behaviour. Why are you assisting them to achieve their goals. Don’t the GOVERNMENT OF ZAMBIAN have the AMERICAN VERSION OF CIA AGENTS OR FBI? Send them out, to be your eyes and ears. PUT UP A SHOW OF TEAR GAS AND OTHER…

  22. PLEASE PUT UP A SHOW OF TEARGAS AND OTHER THINGS SUCH AS …ARRESTS ONLY WHEN NECESSARY .. YOU ARE FEEDING THEIR EGOS WITH YOUR AS YOU KEEP CHASING THEM AND GIVING THEM HIGHER PRIORITY. I dont hate Mr. HH or Mr. GBM, i just dont get their high LEVELS OF GRANDIOSITY. Please gentlemen ACCEPT AND MOVE ON. 2021 you will be PRESIDENTS GOD WILLING.

  23. Let them honk – since when did you start prescribing how people should mourn? You are making a mountain out of an anthill by giving these guys too much attention. Are you still steeped in the 60s where ignorance was bliss? The population is ‘awake’ now…
