Information and Broadcasting Minister Kampamba Mulenga

Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Kampamba Mulenga has said that the lawlessness being perpetrated by the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) has vindicated Government’s position on the need to maintain the Public Order Act.

Speaking yesterday in an interview, Ms Mulenga, who is also the Chief Government Spokesperson, said that the Public Order Act (POA) is an essential piece of legislation that helps in maintaining law and order.

The chief government spokesperson also said that the POA will be amended at an appropriate time and that it should be progressive if Zambia is to maintain the cherished peace.

She said Government will not enact laws with potential to put the country on fire but will always act in national interest to ensure that it remains a safe place for all citizens.

“Those that are pushing for the amendment or repealing of the Public Order Act so that they can cause anarchy in the country should reflect on their positions. We don’t want lawlessness that can make our country ungovernable,” Ms Mulenga said.

Ms Mulenga said Government will cautiously handle constitutional provisions that border on law and order to avoid allowing individuals with selfish and evil motives to plunge the country into chaos.

Ms Mulenga, who is Kalulushi member of Parliament (MP), called for patriotism from all Zambians on matters of national interest and denounce acts that threaten national security.

She said President Lungu has demonstrated his commitment to peace and that his administration will at an appropriate time consider any progressive constitutional amendment proposal.

Ms Mulenga advised opposition politicians to put national interest first and respect the will of the people.

    • This lady is so clueless. Laws should never be made directed at a particular party or person but the general good. She is so dull , she wears evening dresses to the office and sees nothing wrong with that….

    • She is right as well.

      She has proved a materclass if an apointment.

      Terminate HH and UPND and the cadres and this country will be the most peaceful country in the world.

This dumb woman has no integrity at all, one minute she is refuting rumours about ZNBC not up for sale the next she is announcing that 60% has been sold off to the Chines for an EXIM Bank loan.

    • Facts about kuomboka and c’wala.

      Kuomboka is from west, c’wala from east.
      During kuomboka it should rain, During c’wala it should not rain.

      I have been here since morning, anyone who has seen the orange flag here, have seen the Zambian flag, but the presidential flag, i can’t see it.

      Terrible, njimbu any explanation?

    • Whoooo ! I can’t stop being amazed by the calibre of our ministers. How can you maintain a law directed at one party?
      Is she being honest to say that lawlessness is being perpetrated by the opposition UPND and PF has clean hands? Is lawlessness not exhibited by PF? Why then did she not mention PF, just to be objective?
      If some people think she is right, then I am not surprised our politicians are taking as for a ride, and they can do and say what they want knowing very well, that Zambians are so docile and nothing will happen.
      Unfortunately, even the so-called “MBA, PHD” holders are after all empty tins not capable of analysing.

  1. I totally agree with you, without public order act, this country will be ungovernable. We don’t have maturity in the opposition, especially the under 5 party and its kachema.

    • 53 years after independence, Zambia is still using a colonial era legislation to suppress her citizens. That’s why Zambia must remain in the ICC so that Lungu cannot kill Zambians and get away with it. The POA was made by the colonialists to suppress and kill black people. There’s nothing honourable and benevolent about it.

  2. But lawlessness is the Police denying your competitor the UPND the freedom to assemble and you the government who is in charge of the country allow it. If there is a security threat in Lusaka, the bloody Police chaps must provide the security. As a PF member, I get embarrassed by our behaviour

    • Thanks @Judy. We are Zambians first and we all need to make Zambia work. PF are just so intent on suppressing Zambians with opposing views that they can carry out ethnic cleansing.

    • @Judy, I am glad that even within PF there are people like you who are able to stand out and say loudly where things are wrong.
      Indeed, we are Zambians first, regardless of political affiliations. And we should be the first one to tell these incapable politicians if they are wrong and not blindly be following or accepting all the s.h.i.t they say

  7. This woman has lost her marbles. I think getting phucked for a job leads to one not being objective. You are an ignorant f00l. Tell me who was behind the death of our female member killed just before elections. Tell me who was being the stoning of upnd buses and supporters during campaigns in Lusaka. Tell me who was being the killing of zaf officer while in the hands of pf police. Please do not insult our intelligence. You will find that pf is behind all this and tries to hide behind the police when we all know that pf cadres are now in police uniform. You will die young woman

  8. The POA is always convenient when you are the one in power. Wait until you are on the other ugly side. The same monster you are creating today will surely visit you when your time comes. Remember how Winter Kabimba became victim to the same horde of hooligans he was using to get at his rivals? Time is the best equalizer! As you pay attention at the lawless deeds of the opposition, don’t forget the lawless deeds in your own bedrooms!

    • The POA is what will be used to kill PF faster than Unip. Chimp-yongo is setting a very nice precedent of how PF can be suppressed when they are out of power.

  9. Lawlessness has mostly being perpetrated by PF thugs especially those that are near the collidors of power at state house, the likes of Kaiza Zulu. How many police dockets have been opened against KZ and how many times have we seeing any action by police on this PF thug? Dora Siliya, how many tribunals has she escaped due to continued shielding of her by those in power? “Nine kawalala wanyoko”, popularly RB, his corruption cases are still in public domain but what is being done about those cases? Nothing and ECL has embraced this disgraced old man. Any way, birds of the same feathers flock together and the two can not walk together unless they agree……………………..

  10. The international community is listening to what this nitwit is puking at this level of governance. So the POA is meat to deal with the UPND? What a callous and ignorant way of thinking. This law was enacted by our colonial masters to deprive us of our rights to associate, assemble, freedom to express ourselves and to stifle our efforts towards self governance. Where did this nincompoop go to school not to understand this simple fact? This is the price we pay for having such misguided, empty tins as our leaders. My heart bleeds, what have we done to deserve this kind of stupidity?

  11. Lungu asking UPND Leaders to recognise first b4 Dialogue is like a Doubtful Father telling doubtful Children to recognize him first b4 doing a DNA Test to prove paternity of the Children. Its madness. Lungu should just subject himself to an Election Petition DNA Test if he wants to be recognized by the Petitioners anf and their Supporters. Ordinary Zambians want to know who won the Election and who is their Legitimate President. They know Lungu lost the Election to HH but is i?legally clinging to State House. Illegitimacy is costly and painful. Lungu is feeling the pain and the pressures. Lungu should set himself free and allow the Petition to be heard.

  13. Does this Lady understand that Human Rights are Fundamental and Universal?Does she understand that the Rights to be heard in Court, to assemble,associate, speak and boycott an injustice in Parliament are enshrined in the current Bill of Rights administered by the High of Zambia? I am Ms Mulenga knows that Lawlessness and violence is the DNA of the Panga Family. Does this Prostitute even know what she is talking about? Get a life and stop defending the indefensible.

  14. No sensible thing makes sense to UPNDonkeys. They will oppose anything and anyone as long as they live. Most sensible thing to do is to let them rant and rant and rant and rant as much as they want about their dead petition and ignore them. In order to ensure peace when they rant, just make it a standing policy that no permit is ever given them to hold meetings and if they say anything unlawful, take them in immediately. HH has said that he has tasted police cells, well I say one night or two is not enough, lock him for even just one month at Kamfinsa then he will understand. Have you heard Elisha Matambo rant since he was released from Kamfinsa? No! He has come to his senses after his family told him to let HH go to Kamfinsa himself not abusing other women’s husbands or other…

  18. HH thinks by breaking the law he can provoke the police and blame it on Lungu once arrested.

    He hopes that by that, the international community can speak for him.

    I advise him to forget – he was once in cells with his new friend, gbm on the Copperbelt just after elections.

    No one from the international community was bothered to speak even a word.

    Instead EU was busy reaffirming their commitment to increasing funding to Zambia, while he was still in cells with his big brother.

  19. Indeed upnd is ruled by under 5 leader, Sata was rite HH is totally ignorant of leadership qualitys for he never went through the Chanel of being a class monitor, team captain, school prefect, club chairman, ward chairman and beyond….! Anyway I can’t say more but I’ll only advise him to humble himself and God will lift him up !!!

  20. chikubabe and if your Lungu won the election why are you failing to unvail the pettition to silence these followers of HH? Ninsonifye. Can you give us or send us pictures of Lungu you clain to be legally elected president in Western province?

    Read the Bible, in the Book of Samuel about Soul and David and you will understand why stolen power pains. Lungu soon will go to the grave yeards to consult Sata who is resting in peace by invoking his spirit

  21. I should have thought about this question; WHY IS THIS LADY NOT MARRIED? Any way that is her business but we perceive unmarried ladies at her age very unstable. You madam Minister should be truthful and tell the Nation what was on the ground in Kanyama. You know the truth, just like in the ZAF Officers death and you have chosen to tarnish the name of the opposition. Ms Mulenga your post should prioritize UNIFYING all Zambians regardless of Political or tribal placement. Your idea should be to avoid polarization of the tribes because this is a recipe for tribal wars as was the case in Rwanda and what pertains in the middle East. That should go at once and the earlier you get this on your agenda the better for every Zambian present and future. Stop divisive politics, I beg you PF.

  23. Was this minister really a “Call Girl?” If this is true then how did she get the position of being a minister? What qualifies her to be a minister when we have thousands of people who are probably more qualified than her with higher learning such as a bachelor or masters degree. I just fail to comprehend how Lungu made her minister unless he is getting services or fruits of labour as they put it.
