Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo says he supports the decision by the police not to grant the UPND a permit to hold a rally and the procession of UNZA students to Parliament.

Mr. Kampyongo has since urged the UPND and UNZA students to adhere to the advise by the police or risk breaching the public order act.

The Minister also said he is concerned with the UPND’s continuous public pronouncements.

He said it is important for the UPND to accept that they lost the general elections last year and desist from undermining government which was elected by the majority of Zambians.

And Mr. Kampyongo says the police has the responsibility of not allowing the breeding of anarchy in the country.

The Minister says it is surprising that the UPND is seeking permission to hold a rally yet they do not want to respect the Head of State who is the commander in Chief.

The minister was speaking with the media in Chinsali district.

And traditional leaders in Muchinga Province have called on the UPND to accept the decision made by Zambians on August 11th 2016 when they voted for President Edgar Lungu.

Chief Luchembe said it is important for every Zambian to accept that in any election there is only one winner and last year’s winner was President Edgar Lungu.

Chief Luchembe who spoke on behalf of 23 Traditional leaders from 7 districts in the Province says there is need for everyone to work at building the nation in solidarity.

He said it is important that every Zambian citizen cherishes the peace that God has allowed to prevail in the country.

Chief Luchembe also said what happened recently when the UPND boycotted the Presidential address to Parliament is an issue of concern.

The Chiefs were meeting President Lungu at Tazama Guest House in Chinsali.

    • Kampyongo chikopo. This is a guy that cannot construct a sentence in English. He is extremely dull and his understanding of the law is minuscule. The question is, does UPND have the constitutional right to have a rally? Whether they recognise “humble” Eddie or not is irrelevant

    • Ati he is very dull such that he he can’t even construct a sentence in English. The Germans, Japanese and Chinese can’t construct a sentence in English are they also dull?

    • It is expected that Northern chiefs will say that, but what about Southern chiefs? We have not heard any of them declaring that Lungu won.

  2. After this ugly big headed hippo and f00l was told by illegal lungu to inform the police not to grant permit, he then comes here to make it look like he had nothing to do with that decision. Pf think we are babies. All these lies are just cursing themselves and most will start dropping dead one by one. You cannot kill people and expect to get away with it

    • Your HH instigated the burning of houses, displacement of Zambians who had lived most of their lives in Southern Province, just because they were not Tonga. No Tonga has ever received such barbaric treatment in any other part of the country. Everyone apart from UPND Tongas want anarchy because, HH a Tonga lost an erection.

    • Spaka, just accept that your party did it. That incident has permanently damaged your party’s image and HH will find it very hard to woe the votes outside SP anytime because this will be revisited and he will need to correctly by apologizing or else he will just be considered a nuisance and die hard tribalist.

      That burning of houses in namwala was cheap amature lies by PF.

      Like the bweengwa kidnapping lies there are no suspects, there are no witnesses.

  3. Which Law says one cannot hold a Press Briefing without a Police Permit? Doesnt the violent Kampyongo know that the 2016 Elections were Petitioned and that Petition is in Court?Concourt did not declare the Winner of the 2016 Election and therefore Lungu was not duly elected. Lungu is in State House illegally and unconstitutionally. Lungu will stew in illegitimacy with dire consequences.Just wait and see another Laurent Gbagbo scenario unfold. Illegitimate Lungu will Dununa regret this.

  5. Zambia is a democracy please let people enjoy their rights and freedoms in peace. These are dictatorial attributes, You PF thugs think you are doing justice oppressing your fellow nationals in the end Zambia will be a country on the rocks!!I don’t see the harm in people having a media briefing or a rally, in developed countries protests are a healthy way of voicing concern

  6. IN THE FIRST PLACE, YOU DID NOT ALLOW THEM TO CAMPAIGN IN SHIWANG’ANDU, WHICH YOU SAID WAS A NO GO ZONE AREA FOR THE OPPOSITION AND YET YOURSELF YOU ARE IN LUSAKA WHICH IS NOT YOUR VILLAGE OF ORIGIN.

  8. I am deeply saddened that the office of minister can issue a press statement to jubilate his Police service failure to provide the necessary security needed to hold a simple rally. What Mr Minister fails to recall is soon after his party ascended to power they set about increasing the manpower available to the police force…However when the names of those to be recruited were released half of them were cadres. Most failed to complete basic training but command at lilayi were instructed to pass them. The result is trigger or tear gas happy cops with little or no fundamentals a danger to themselves and the nation..2021 zamfo

  9. You mr. kampyongo and your friend ‘Lost’ Lubinda in min. of justice are smoking some really bad stuff that is clouding your eyes and brains to see and make good judgment. Its an embarrassment that your kind represents Zambia at international meetings.

  10. RB also stiffened his neck during his presidency. He used so many minions who are today rotting in jail, the likes of chanda chiimba and others. We all remember the ‘ Wako ni waka’ and ‘Boma ni boma’ slogans he popularly used. After a disasterous end of his presidency, today he is advising ECL who also has been blinded to reality but God in His own wisdom has a way of doing things no matter how one thinks there are smart. Power should be exercised with limits not to the extent of grabbing private properties from citizens, the POSTNEWS paper way. No amount of propaganda from the govt and indeed PF will erase that fact from the minds of reasonable Zambians. The legacy of the current PF leadership in govt will be of their unquanceable desire to close private companies especially the media…

    • Banda and Lungu did not win Presidency just because they are Eastrrners, due to being popular country wide. HH is the one solely playing the tribal card. Why do you, Tongas support him just because he is Tong? The answer “wako ni wako”, a Tonga version.

  11. (Chimp)yongo,- Chakolwa’s flavour of the month Storm trooper since Big Neck Chimbwili was sacked, is the architect of this assault on Zambian democracy,
    This (Chimp)yongo then comes out of its cave, pretending it had nothing to do with this backward barbaric decision.
    ZAMBIA IS DEAD & PUTREFYING UNDER THESE CORRUPT P.F HYENAS & VULTURES.

  12. I think it would be unwise for UPND to start holding rallies before the disposition of their court case.

    • Tombolilo, my friend, forget about UPND ruling. It will never happen under HH. There only two national appealing parties, PF and MMD. When PF goes, MMD will bounce back. UPND has been destroyed by HH, it will never win outside its current stronghold because the voting pattern in future election will use the method HH used in 2016. They will never give votes outside SP. other provinces were given a wake up call.

    • As usual, you guys are reading between lines. I saying UPND under HH will never rule because HHhas spoiled the Party’s reputation. I was not saying PF will rule forever, that’s not possible, but they will surely rule for more than 20 years. Do not argue, you will not be there.
