    It was unnecessary from the beginning. The police need to be trained in professionalism. They’ve the Sam UNIP mentality.

      The first Zambian President in the making. Fred M’membe will be the First Gentleman. Lungu, Dora and RB in the doc. Wynter Kabimba Justice Minister, Mutembo DPP, Nchima the Director at the ACC. This lady will put together a winning team for Zambia and the thieves will scamper or be jailed. They are a cancer that is hurting Zambia. They are leaches and someone needs to get rid of them. Go Mutinta Go!

    Criminals are being praised. Upnd have always missed the live wire which can give them presidency. They like supporting enemies of the majority voters. Hh is a lost case.

      the issue is not whether Mmembe is right or wrong, but the harrasment is what is worrying. No one deserves to he harrassed, not even ECL himself.

    Be reminded of the horse and the rider story. when the horse runs a good race, the prize money is deposited in the account of the rider and not the horse. In most cases, the rider then sends the winning horse to a stabble while he crosses continents for holiday sleeping in nice hotels. The horse keeps on taking un treated water and grazing green pastures while the rider takes mineral water and well baked foods. those with ears, let them hear.

    Beautiful? The meaning of beauty must have changed. Look at the rotten facial skin. And she is also shapeless from neck downwards. She wears large sunglasses perhaps hoping to hide her face and he rest of her. I am sure even for Mmembe she remains a proxy wife.

    Mmembe’s newspaper was so instrumental in pushing pf’s agenda in 2011, it was pf’s mouthpiece for the to ascend to power, i don’t understand why they didn’t ask him not to preach about them to Zambians since he was a tax no paying citizen, in short pf was harboring someone who had committed a crime, that on its own is a crime too. Harboring a criminal.

    For those who remember the Zero Option in the early 1990s, the then UNIP President, Inyambo Yeta, was served with a search warrant when the police wanted to search the UNIP offices. Inyambo Yeta tore up the search warrant. Mmembe wrote one of his usual lengthy editorials arguing that Yeta had committed a very serious offence and deserved to be locked up. What has changed since then for him justify Mutinta’s tearing of the search warrant? Those blindly supporting Mutinta and Mmembe’s behaviour should, at the very least, have a sense of history.

    Yes the accounts clerk and wannabe lawyer and scribe wrote about the seriousness of tearing up a search warrant. He spoke at length on how people who have nothing to fear or hide could not refuse lawful authority to be searched. He repeated the same when KK went into hiding just as he has done or when attan skipped bail or when Xavier feared for his life their homes were destroyed families divided forever not being able to bury their loved ones properly and that was OK!

    You are victimizing an innocent woman maybe the president is admiring the wife of Mr. M’membe because she is more beautiful than his that’s why he uses the state machinery to fight his battles so that Mrs. M’membe becomes royal to him. Useless!
