Newly appointed Information and Broadcasting Minister Kampamba Mulenga has assured that the PF has no intention to muzzle the press.
And Ms Mulenga who is now the Chief Government Spokesperson has announced that she will from next week start her familiarisation tour of media houses across the country.
Addressing her inaugural media briefing at her office this afternoon, Ms Mulenga said the PF government fully supports the freedom of the press.
“I would like to send a message to you that the PF government has no intention to muzzle the press,” Ms Mulenga said.
“The PF will not deliberately generate policies that will degenerate freedom of the media, freedom of expression. The government believes in freedom of expression and the PF as a party came into power with the promise that it would restore press freedom, this is our core values,” Ms Mulenga said.
She also said that she was impressed with the technological advancement in the media industries such as social media and citizen journalism.
On the issue of arrest of four Radio Mano Journalists, Ms. Mulenga said the case is now before the police and she will allow the law enforcement agencies to finish their work.
She however reiterated that the PF will not attack any media house as long as the media houses operate within the law.
She further announced that in a bid to promote the dissemination of information, community radio stations should be encouraged to enter into MoUs with ZNBC to allow community stations rebroadcast the ZNBC news.
yes you may but the PF does’t.
Kampamba you are just another PF *****. Do you even know the true meaning of a free press? If you really believe in upholding the freedoms enshrined in our constitution why not take a decisive decision to prevent such depressing news about madia houses being intimidated if they report against the PF?
All PF officials including the president Chagwa lungu are stupid *****s who do not care about the plight of free Zambians who need their freedoms back.
Its just a matter of time when the PF will fall and all you guys will be made to account.
Chagwa must fall at all means.
I don’t like her. She is ugly.
She will soon realise that in PF it’s cadres who matter. As soon as she starts defending the media, cadres will accuse her of ‘dividing the party’. Look at what is happening to Bowman Lusambo. He has good intentions for the Copperbelt but cadres have risen against him.
This Namaliketi looks like she a lazy wife. Those women who enjoy gossiping. There is no way she can be government spokesperson.
Let this PF biatch bring back the ZWD. Otherwise it’s the same PF lies, lies, lies.
Who would want to rebroadcast marubbish spewed by ZNBC.
Start with repealing laws that impinge press freedom, introduce FoI, then we can talk again.
To Kampamba, I want to send my apologies for my above comment.
Let’s make up and be loving friends. See you soon in Kalulushi.
That is the problem with you women. Instead of supporting or not supporting a woman for what she stands for, Mushota you simply say you do not like her because she is ugly. Every creature made in the image of God is beautiful!!!
What if Mushota doesn’t believe in God?
You cristians think the universe operates on your rules. Far from it. There are other philosophies besides cristians dogma
Are you stupid woman? If your boss strongly advocates for press muzzling and does exactly that who are you or who be you to make such a stupid statement?
“She however reiterated that the PF will not attack any media house as long as the media houses operate within the law.” what does this sentence mean?
therein lies the pf lies comrade!
IT MEANS THAT THE MEDIA HOUSE SHOULD AIR PF PROPAGANDA AND NOT DISCLOSE ANY OF THEIR DIRTY THIEVING HABITS LOL AND MUST SING HOSSANA ABOUT PF.
Meaning they will attack media houses operating outside the law. Is it their job?
As if your intentions matter. Its Lungu’s intentions you will be carrying out.
she will soon realize that she is Lungu’s mouth piece.
Lol. Enjoy your 5 years. It may be your last.
Don’t trust anything that comes from any person appointed by the master drunkard. Pfools members thrive on lies.
Lies,lies,lies,lies and we all know pangarians family (PF) thrive on lies.
Is it true that FAZ wants to allow homosexuallity in their consititution? Just picked this from BBC
Anyone been reading the ‘Zambian Observer’? At least its something different after the ‘clamp’ on the Zambian Watchdog and The Post.
Thanks for info man not the clap we are fed with everyday.
Her boss believes in muzzling the Press so this lady will be fired shortly if she does not implement her boss’s directives.PF does not believe in Press Freedom so when u are Rome behave like the Romans to survive and enjoy the Pf gravy train.
As if she has a say!
HER BOSS WILL ISSUE INSTRUCTIONS
CMF = Chagwa Must Fall
Quit lying Ms Kapamba .Fact is that your cushy job and your senior position comes before your values of liberty and principles about free press.
You can’t value free press and yet your PF shows no value or respect for free judiciary – why didn’t you speak out against PF defying court orders to allow RB to travel?
Who is ths lady?
Kapamba,that’s pf trick common language.we now know you guys your talks are different from your actions,you are goats in the sheep’s skin.To hell chimkazi iwe
Ba Kampamba first of all congratulations madam! Secondly don’t pay attention to these empty tin blood thirsty UPND animals, they are born losers that are used to complaining about anything.
Stick to the job madam and try by all means to put ZNBC into the 2000s, that station is still in 1984- the poor quality of the pictures being broadcast, the hopeless and embarassing commentary, poor coordination on and off screen amongst announcers and technical crew- let’s emulate the likes of Botswana Tv!
It’s telling that you chose 1984 (was that subliminal?), the George Orwell novel from which Big Brother watches everybody. We don’t want Lungu’s 1984 in Zambia.
Kkkkkkk you are busy wasting your time explaining how bad the picture is to this lady.forget my dear i dont think if that is even on there program.just seat relax and wait for the closure of another media which is not operating inside the laws of pf.
I bet the tongas never imagined that in bembaland there could such beauty. The best they had ever seen was Mrs Mutinta Mmembe. And they only knew bembas as monkeys. Now they are choking with envy. And in parliament she sits directly across from Jack Mwiimbu and Gary Nkombo, poor souls confronted with beauty and brains. No, worse than that actually, they have always wanted to be ministers but it’s always a miss with HH, now they look at this absolute beauty from nowhere she becomes a minister before them. Beauty and brains chaps, you cannot be intelligent if you cannot see that HH is a waste of your time, energy, AND political career.
This pf’s definition of beauty! She got a witch’s mole just below her nose.
Some comments! You have nothing to write about?
Why do women wear lipstick?
Because they from Venus. You are not. Please appreciate diversity. Extol it.
Diversity my foot when the whole nation is busy imitating its colonisers. When did people live on this Venus shoot of yours?
Isnt that a harmless question? But ba Meimatungu wants to use it as an opportunity for preaching! Zambians and their holier than thou attitudes
With lipstick women look like they have just come from sucking blood. Yes they look like Vampires
It is laughable to suggest that private radio stations sign MOUs with ZNBC so that they can re-broadcast ZNBC NEWS. hahahahaha Which private Radio station would like to become a mouthpiece of ZNBC???
Kambwili is branded a thief and a corrupt minister by all Upnd sympathisers. Should the same Kambwili join Upnd today he will become a clean person and they will start worshiping and glorifying him. Just thinking.
Over our dead bodies. No way can we accept kambwili in our party. Keep dreaming!
Keep dreaming? But you have Godfrey Bwalya Mwamba (MoD, Zesco etc etc), not only as a member of your party, but running mate and vice president too. Yes from a corrupt minister in PF straight to the pinnacle of UPND! And you say not over your dead bodies? Then you must be dead bodies already, confirmed!!!!! …..Hiho hiho hiho hiho hiho hiho hiho hiho.
@17.1, the mole just makes her cute. I confirmed this with Gary and Jack, and now Cornelius too. If HH was in parliament he would probably agree too.
Who is uglier between Martha Mushipe and Mulenga Kampamba? Just asking.
Muntu wanzelu it`s not fair mind your words it`s not good to tell the REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT that he is stupid.It`s better you complain than calling him that.Please respect is good learn to respect elders am not
a PF member but you have gone beyond your limit.
BEAUTY CONTEST BETWEEN THE TWO, NKANDU LUWO AND MULENGA KAMPAMBA WHO CAN COME FIRST?
IWE DON’T BRING BACK FREEDOM OF THE PRESS IN PRESENT ZAMBIA, THEY WILL BITTERLY INSULT YOU TO AN EARLY GRAVE, THESE PEOPLE NO LONGER CONSIDER US PF AS FELLOW HUMANS. ALWAYS REMEMBER PF AND UPND ARE SWORN ENEMIES.
The Post is dead, Zambian Watchdog is dead, Muvi Tv, komboni, Ithezhi tehezh, Mano etc shushed, and the remaining Daily Mail, Times, ZNBC, Daily Nation need no interference. So whats your point madam?
We will wait for you. You say you are for free press enjoy my sister.
Arresting journalists every single day and you say you believe in a “free press”? Shame on you, you are an embarrassment to Zambia
I”ll be sure to discuss the next male appointees features… Are we serious at all? And some will retort ‘ freedom of expression’ or something silly along those lines.
Please investigate Kambwili. MWAMONA INVEST is located in Francistown, Botswana. Company is working in General business business activities.
