PF cadres protesting outside LAZ offices
PF cadres protesting outside LAZ offices

A horde of rowdy cadres from the ruling PF this afternoon protested at the Law Association of Zambia Secretariat.

The cadres carrying placards denouncing LAZ President Linda Kasonde for her alleged pro opposition stance demanded that she leaves the Secretariat.

It was not immediately clear of Ms. Kasonde was in the building at the time of the protest.

Police had to move in quickly to disperse the cadres and security the premises.

By the time of publishing, armed police were still manning the building.

A notice via SMS from LAZ advised its members and the public from entering the premises.

“Good afternoon all. Cadres have attacked secretariat. Please do not go there until further notice. I have spoken to Commissioner of Police Lusaka who says he is sending officers. I am also trying to get hold of the AG. Please do not go to the Secretariat,” the text read.

Some of the cadres were carrying weapons such as pangas and advanced directly to Ms. Kasonde’s office but she could not be found.

The cadres said they have been angered by LAZ’s decision to represent Post lawyer Nchima Nchito over the arrest warrant of instituted by former Post workers.

Cadres are demanding the dismantling of LAZ accusing it to be pro-UPND and champion the agenda of Fred M’membe.

In an interview later, Ms. Kasonde confirmed that she is safe and that the cadres have all dispersed.

    • Let us pay particular attention to the word Mumbi used in an earlier article – ‘disingeneous’.

      You see HH and his supporters are supposed to accommodate basic logic in the way they approach matters.

      For 15 days, which is the allowable time, HH refused to talk about his case. He chose to talk about preliminaries to spend time.

      After the 15 years was over and the case expired, he asks two questions:

      1. Have I been heard or not?
      2. Have might rights not been violated.

      Did HH want ECL to speak for him so that his case could be heard?

      This is why Mumbi used the term ‘disingeneous’.

    • Who remembers the firebrands Inonge Wina of NGOCC & Emily Sikazwe of WfC matching on parley in miniskirts to speak for women who were being harassed by MMD cadres on Lsk streets. Now the old hags are scrappy shadows of themselves.
      I’m left to ask myself the question, would Lucy Banda Sichone have ended up in a similar way if she had lived long? I’ll never know, I miss her.

    • That poster speaks volumes about the one way thinking of brainless cadres, who are even present on this website who think if you criticise the Ruling Party you are a member of the opposition or should form your own party.

    • @Mbanje: I always tell you to stop taking the hard stuff!
      So to you…”Well done” to ZP for what? Can’t you see that this is total security failure by the police. I expect the police to have good intelligence to have stopped this from happening in the first place. Preventative measures are always better and cheaper.
      The question is why were the police not able to pick such a simple criminal act by politically sponsored uneducated PF cadres? The fact is ZP is so compromised and docile to stop even minor security incidents like this one. With Lungu and other monkeys at the helm, Zambia is far from being a democracy and ZP are only policing UPND instead protecting the country!!

    • This thuggish behavior by PF cadres is rearing it’s ugly head again. Carrying Pangas and other weapons when you go to protest is primitive, and shows that you’re nothing but thugs, hooligans. While these low information ruffians have a right to protest, they should be arrested by the police just for carrying weapons with them. When you carry weapons to a protest the message is clear — that you’re ready to use it to harm someone. And on those grounds you should be arrested and caged, so civilized citizens can be protected.

    • So Kaponyas used their own money to go and print those posters…this must be the work of the dull Davis Chama SG. They will remember LAZ when they are no longer in power…this is why I want someone needs to investigate Lazy’s academic credentials, he is now scared of his own shadows and only worried about 2021.
      If these tins have too much time why dont they go to KKIA to wait for their lazy leader.

  5. They want to mute everyone who is providing checks and balances these empty tins…meanwhile the whole cabinet is partying in Israel leaving their Grandma in charge…really laughable…not even under MMD did cadres ever take such action.

  6. Lawlessness is taking over in the country. Did they have a permit? If not, then hasn’t any one of them been arrested? This stone age type of leadership will only lead to chaos. Why this intolerance of divergent views?

  7. She is Bemba representing a Tonga and hell breaks loose on the poor girl. Unintelligent PF cadres truly are a danger to the one Zambian one nation motto of this nation, they are full cycle *****s. Maybe Lungu should have taken them all to The Sea of Galilee in Israel so that they could have their stu.pidity washed in the waers where Christ cleansed the dirty and the sick.

  8. @At my Zambia
    It is not lawlessness but some times it is necessary for certain useless officers to be told off or just to be chased .PS National planning be-careful of the boy called mubaanga in choma.As H.O.D’s we want to protest and evict him soon from the office because of his bad language.He is rude to us and has grown wings because linda siwale who failed to write reports brought him from youth and sport.

  17. This spirit of anarchy and extremism is prevalent in both UPND and PF. It is there in most political parties in Africa, but it must not be tolerated or condoned by the leaders. My observation is that the jobless political cadres, with little or no dependable source of income, are the ones to react in extreme! They are easily hired…

    • Iwe, I am not even an HH supporter because I have issues with him with regards to Privatization of Zambian Companies, but HH was being harrassed left and right,period. The ConCourts people were all PF secrete Paid cadres, so all that they(conCourt) were mambling in the news was to f00l people like into believing that they were following the law. Whatever HH was going to do was in vain as corrupt thief Lungu and his fake lawyers had everything in the bag to have corrupt visionless Lungu to be an iligimate President of Zambia.

    • @ 21.2 Nsimanadelele,

      So was it because ConCourt was PF that HH started generating a multiplicity of preliminaries, and avoided discussing his petition, that even when the defendant lawyers kept begging him to starting discussing the case HH had to refused?

  19. Without condoning the berberic behavior, I would urge (though too late) Linda to act as a parent in the execution of her duties. She failed to condemn the riots by Upnd cadres at the high court. In her position she an “all political party “. Her conduct can either destroy or build peace.

  23. These cadres are picking up Pangas because Lungu has failed to give them jobs, the sad part of all is that these useless cadres have no little intelligency to actually see that Lungu and his minions are using them. He used them during the campaigns and promised them jobs, yet he has failed miserably and has continued to use these useless f00ls who can’t see that they are being used. If there were jobs, then we would not have these useless cadres, but Lungu who had failed to create any jobs pays penuts to these useless cadres to do and cause unrest to a law abiding citizen like Ms.Linda Kasonde. Lungu and his bunch of thieves needs to be arrested and put away for a long time. They have continued to harrass everyone that does not agree with their dictatorial way of governing. Lungu can not…

  31. The PF cadres are just as thuggish and violent like their Boss. He ascended to the PF Leadership thru violence and is State President thru Election Rigging and violence. It tells u that Lungu is in power thru Hook and Crook. Lungu is already casting his eyes on 2021 Election which he is going to steal and rig as he has done in 2016. Our only hope is to stop Lungu by supporting HH & GBM as they fight Lungu’s Dictatorship thru the Petition. This Petition must be Heard,Determined and the Winner declared by the Court otherwise the 2021 Election is as good as rigged. Zambians need to stand up to Lungu’s rising Dictatorship. Cry the beloved Zambia.

  39. This is what stolen elections does. With the 6 months deadline approaching the Petitioners can now take their Petition to ICJ. PF cadres are in a panic mood. They fear the dreaded Petition will be heard and if that happens the PF Cadres fear the inevitable might happen leading to loss of power. Legally PF Cadres know that in an Independent and Professional Court, Lungu will lose the State Presidency to HH and UPND. They know ICJ will find that Lungu was Not Democratically,Legally and Constitutionally elected and inaugurated. Even though Lungu lost the 2016 Election he wants to illegally cling to power. The Electoral theft and the Petition is haunting Lungu and PF. Legally Lungu and PF stand on very shakey grounds over the Election Petition.

What has the LAZ ( our learned lawyers) done to instil professionalism in the field of law. This could be some of the reasons why these pipo are annoyed because LAZ has not taken no action on its member. Mind u, even foreign observers who came to monitor the elections were very upset of what really happened of that fateful day. Lets call a spade a spade. LAZ under the leadership of our learned lawyer madam Linda Kasonde has become a vuvuzela of a certain political party instead of being non partisan.

  42. Zambians are full of hatred for one another and are ready to kill one another for “political reasons.”Only that these aren’t political reasons – these are orders that are issued by the executive and its various arms to commit HOMICIDE upon any citizen who gets in their way, and there are plenty mercenaries in the name of political cadres who are paid to do this by the ruling party. That is why police do not arrest or disarm- and -arrest these killers who are well known. They let them go back to their homes to kill again some other time the politicians-read PRESIDENT because the buck stops at him as the chief executive officer of both the ruling party and the government

The people who voted knew what they wanted because they stay with these people (ECL & HH) so the know better who is the right person for them.

You see Lungu has wasted money on useless commission on source violence before and after the election yet he can’t acknowledge that his cadres are his leaders are the source of the violence. Here you have another proof on the source of violence in Zambia.
