INTERPOL has not issued any red notice for Former Post Editor in Chief Fred M’membe.

This is contrary to the story published by the Daily Nation this week that INTERPOL has launched a man hunt for Dr M’membe who it said is believed to be in Jamaica.

A search on the INTERPOL website shows that only two people with links to Zambia have had red notices issued against them.

They are Tony Mulenga, 47, who is on the run for fraudulent dealing with Motor Vehicles and escaping from lawful custody and Patel Aliraja, 28, an Indian national who is facing charges of obtaining money by false pretences and issuing Cheques on insufficiently funded account including theft by servant contrary to the Laws of Zambia.

The Daily Nation quoted Lusaka Province Commissioner Nelson Phiri as having stated that Zambia is working with INTERPOL to track down Dr M’membe who is facing charges involving his dealings with the Post Newspapers.

But Mr Phiri has denied ever issuing such remarks to a Daily Nation Reporter.

In an interview, Mr Phiri said he was clearly misquoted saying this is a case of a reporter putting words in my mouth.’

He explained that what he told the reporter was that he does not have jurisdiction beyond Lusaka Division after the Daily National officer suggested that Dr M’membe could be ‘hiding’ in Jamaica.

“What I said was if he is in Jamaica then that is the case of INTERPOL because as Lusaka Province Commissioner, I don’t have jurisdiction beyond my province,” he said.

    Hehehe. PF , PF , PF.

    NO one will believe your news very soon.
    The resident kaponya bloggers on LT even stated dancing dunnua reverse.

    As a rule of thumb, if you don’t see any photos like the alleged attack on journalists the other day it is lies.

    If you don’t see any auther contersigning a purported letter like those endosments of lungu by the queen and others it is a lie.

    If you read anything attributed to the daily nation it is a lie.

    If you read anything from Amos chanda it is most likely lies.

      Most of Zambian reporters are too childish, but that’s not the reason of beating them up.
      ZP said reality, but things got twisted and escalated. Why Mmembe?

      The Policeman has vindicated himself, I trust his word

      Fred is a coward for claiming he will come back to Zambia and then rescinding his decision.

      What else can you expect from the convict Richard Sakala the big thief’s paper?…only LIES, LIES, LIES, and fake news! This is proof that the Fckn rat eating old ar.se Sakala was not convicted and jailed for nothing!
      Sakala is a thief, thief, thief, lier, lier, lier, etc…and Mwanawasa has been vindicated for jailing him!

      Just the other day the sick diagnosed Personality disorder ka mushota was arguing when someone highlighted she was so derranged, she changes her opinion & stance with the wind.
      Ill mushota ranted back “Its okay to flip flop, & change ones opinion, as only the dead do not change”
      Today ka mushota forgot to take its medications, & is condemning Mmembe for changing his mind. Mmembe aint no angel, but id rather have Mmembe as my neighbour, that the sick twisted Oxygen thief ka mushota.
      Im actually surprised this ka mushota has not been given a job in the equally visionless flip flopping P.F government.

      True most reporters are childish especially those that support UPND. Always jumping to silly conclusions and putting word in people’s mouths. Check what the mast writes or even Muvi TV.

    It’s not the first time he’s gone into hiding, the other time was when he was found to be in contempt of Parley, MCS ensured that he was locked up. He will reappear when he sees fit. He likes dangerous games, how do you Chikwanda talking about wines, boast about it and expect to get away with it? You can’t tap people’s phones as you were shushushu and boast about it. He’s a bad boy

    The Fugitive has himself to blame. Using the post he attacked kk,ftj,LPM,RB and brought them down . When we appeared headed for victory he called our party a bantusan a that tag stuck and lost us an election to MCS. His ‘miko’ appointed his ex-employees as ambassadors/deputy and even PS most were ill-equipped for the jobs. His friends became speaker,DPP, director finance zesco.In his mind FM had become a head of state,in exchange for his soul he bought trucks, buses and stopped paying taxes, he became part of the rot we now live with…let him come and face the creature he helped sire! After all a snake recognizes its own.2021 zamfo

      @thechangeweneed UPND So what do you now want us (Zambians) to do for you? Vote UPND? Walipusauka sana! None of these parties PF or UPND will do anything for Zambia! Not even MMD or UNIP (after all, we tried them before)! Mmembe has done a lot for Zambia but he has done his bit and unless Zambia take control of her own destiny, we will keep on making the same mistakes!

    This false, fake news was reported by Lusaka Times as well. A question begs, what was the purpose of splashing this fake news all over LT? without verifying it with the police spokes person. When Zambians say LT is peddling lies to please its master PF government, are labelled ‘opposition’. Please verify facts before reporting as news and in this case LT is blaming Daily Nation news paper feeding us guff news – No its LT peddling lies and fake news.
    Zambian journalists will continue to be humiliated in Zambia because they are used as tools and later rewarded or discarded. In Zambia most journalists have been rewarded for peddling lies, writing fake news and slandering individuals for political gain. In Mexico they are hunted and killed, in Russia they disappear and in Zambia they are…

    It’s just a matter of time..Zambia Police were just in the process of negotiating with Interpol how best they can be assisted to track Mmembe. This can even be done incognito.

    In Zambia journalists are urinated into their mouths. Am not fan of Fred Mmembe but he is Zambian deserving equal rights like Kampyongo, Kambwili, or any other person. However, to spread lies as LT and Daily Nation have done over INTERPOL on Mmembe is to dismiss the two media sources of fake news.

    Richard Sakala has tremendous hatred against Dr M’membe and UPND. No wonder, he has come up with this terrible propaganda against Ba Fred and UPND. I hope Richard is as clean as a whistle in all his dealings with the current PF govt, otherwise his day of reckoning is approaching soon. He has reduced his newspaper to “fake News” as evidenced by such phonny reports about M’membe.

    Lusaka times is also becoming a media cartel that promotes “fake news”. How can you make screaming headlines here about Dr M’membe being on a wanted list for INTERPOL without verifying the facts on the ground? Dont become simply excited over making popular headlines here minus checking with the facts obtaining on the ground. As for Richard Sakala, he has sold his soul to the current PF regime who are likely to achieve nothing for the next five years apart from destroying their perceived opponents like M’membe and others

    – Zambia a country once famous for giving refuge to people being persecuted in South Africa, lebanon, DRC, Namibia, Angola, Zim, Bosnia, Mozambique & even Jews has become a country a victimizer of anyone with a dissenting views & is now creating its own refugees.

    – Zambia a country once reknown for fighting colonialism& supporting liberation struggles in Southern Africa is now a staunch supporter of the only African country colonizing a fellow African country:- Morocco’s colonization of Western Sahara.

    The MMD-led, PF00Lish Regime is such a FAART.

    Just because M’membe is at odds with the PF led government does not necessarily make him a hero. There are times when people should put aside their political colours and call a spade a spade. This M’membe guy should come and prove his innocence in the Courts of Law before trying to portray like he is a person seeking political asylum. Not paying tax is not a political crime. Until M’membe comes back and has his day in court, I will consider him as just a case of a ‘glorified’ thief. I pay my taxes and I expect everyone else to do the same. Just because he supported this or that party is not reason enough for him to be let Scot free when it comes to the issue of paying his dues.

    But the scoundrel is hiding somewhere right? And I hear that part of his “disappearance” is because HH demanded his money back for Mmembe failing to keep his bargain of installing HH in State House. HH probably wants to join the claimants in the Post liquidation case.

    @Czar, which courts in Zambia? Justice has vanished in Zambia. Justice in favour of appointing authorities is the justice we get in Zambia. Mmembe will be killed in police cells as Zambia police killed a ZAF officer. Let the 2016 UPND presidential appeal be heard in Zambian courts, Lungu remains an illegitimate president of Zambia.

      He managed to open the people’s eyes, employed many people, some of them highly paid for that matter.

      However, along the good, he did a lot of bad things in terms of non compliance to paying taxes, probably just like most of the other PF guys. I bet if we checked Kambwili we would find a huge skeleton!
