Mumbi Phiri (R)

PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri says the party is ready to provide security to President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and will look after him well than the Police.

“We call on the Police to give us a go ahead to protect our leader if they have failed. President Lungu is not just the Republican President but leader of the Patriotic Front (PF) and we have a very strong Party Security,” said Ms Phiri.

Speaking during a media briefing at the PF Secretariat today, the ruling Party DSG said what transpired in Mongu over the weekend when Hichilema and the UPND obstructed the Presidential Motorcade in full view of the Police shows how unprofessional the Police service is.

She said for how long will the ruling PF be expected to restrain from reacting to the UPND’s continued provocation and anarchy.

Ms Phiri stated that the party is saddened at how the opposition leader could have their own Security Officers outside Hichilema’s Vehicle side by side and yet the window to President Lungu’s Vehicle was wide open without a single office on the door side.

“Why was the window to the President’s Car open? The road was very narrow but HH’s Car had Security outside his Car, how come as per normal procedure under those circumstances, the Presidential vehicle was not accorded the protection it deserves?” asked the PF DSG.

“We have been guided by a qualified Doctor at the Chainama mental health that Hakainde Hichilema is suffering from metal disorder. We will not give room to Hakainde to destroy this Country” she added.

And LUAPULA Province PF Chairperson Nickson Chilangwa has charged that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema should be considered as a danger to national security following his provocative stunt in Mongu.

Mr. Chilangwa who is also Luapula Province Minister said Mr. Hichilema’s refusal to give way to President Edgar Lungu’s motorcade on Saturday posed a security risk to the Presidency.

He said Mr. Hichilema had insulted the Presidency which was a depository of the country’s pride and values.

Mr. Chilangwa said what Mr. Hichilema did bordered on national security and should not be taken lightly as it had consequences.

Mr. Chilangwa said Mr. Hichilema’s behavior had proved that he was a politician who had no respect for the office he was wishing to occupy.

“For now Zambians must treat [Mr] Hichilema as a danger to national security because of his provocative behavior. What kind of democracy is Hichilema practising if he can’t respect the highest office in the land? What happened in Mongu should be stopped immediately, ” Mr. Chilangwa charged.

He warned that if nothing happened to control Mr. Hichilema’s behavior, national security would be put at greater risk.

“Hichilema is pushing his luck too far by by attempting to block President Edgar Lungu’s motorcade and consequences will be too ghastly for him to contemplate. We can’t tolerate it any more. Enough is enough, ” He warned.

    • Mumbi is right. Lungu should rule with an Iron fist and accord UpND and HH the same way Kaunda accorded people that opposed him.

      Lungu being a democrat is being ridiculed and the motor car scandal is the last straw for a lot of the neutral Zambians.

      Zambia does NOT need UPND and HH – who is using every means available to him to avoid a convention.

      Its time for change

      Thanks

    • The real tragedy in our nation today is that the president has chosen to surround himself with the lowest calibre of advisors at both party and national level. Incredible when you consider the greater pool of talent to choose from across the whole country. But then again that talent would tell him the truth while he wishes for hero worshiping.

      Speaking as one who used the road to Limulunga quite recently, the road is so potholed that one would be lucky to drive at 20 km/h on a normal day let alone on the day of the Kuomboka with hundreds of other motorists and thousands of people on foot. Yet Mr Amos Chanda in his statement said HH decided to drive slow so that the president’s motorcade would catch up with him.

      With the talent I speak about as advisors, state house and the police…

      This would immediately have put an end to the noise and speculation while investigations would be carried out quietly to see if there were any security lapses.

    • In this one the Police lamentably failed the test for protective security service of providing impermeable physical security to a vital State asset. They exposed the state President to clear and present danger all at national risk. What justification has IG got to continue in his position when all he can offer is this vulnerability?
      Hichilema’s stunt was the most reckless and self exposing i could ever think of. Presidential protective security is empowered by the law to take down any clear and present danger to the physical security of the President in any scenario.

    • Sad and dangerous statement from a senior officer of a ruling party accusing our gallant men and women in uniform. Insecurity breeds mistrust.
      It is folly to think that a group of untrained, undisciplined and jobless political cadres can protect the Presidency better than our national security. The Police knew exactly what they were doing and they divulged information on the need to know basis. At this point Mumbi does not need to know.
      Polishing up the botched photo-shoot somewhere in the South of Africa; perhaps!

If you were sensible, which of course you are NOT, you should have read Dickson Jere’s analysis of the situation instead of always fa.rting and speaking nonsense.
      For the benefit st.upid PF Cadres including you Dickson has cleared the air that the Zambian President generally moves in four (4) distinct ways, which everyone should take note: (1) private, (2) semi-official, (3) official and (4) ceremonial. So I want you to read the whole article and get REAL facts into your sh.it head!! Your mother should have conceived you just a day before her periods started – scum bag of wasted sperms!!

    • Government is failing to display maturity, it’s the oppositions job to point out your failures, it’s their job to irritate you, it’s their job to expose your weaknesses, it’s their job to expose you as long as it’s done within the law.
      The presidential motorcade should have Waited for the road to clear before speeding out. Lots of incompetence on the part of the presidential escort here.
      Knowing very well Western province is an opposition strong hold, much wisdom should have been applied in planning the event.
      Government should take responsibility and own up to its mistakes.
      My opinion is Lungu’s own people let him down.

    • The fact is HH is supposed to show maturity.

      He should not be careless and allow even children to consider themselves more mature than someone who eishes to rule the nation.

      HH is capable of behaving better than he is doing.

      Even the last kicks of a dying horse are far better that HH’s behaviour.

      It is not our problem that his political career is coming to an end without achieving his ambitions.

    • Honestly, I don’t understand this whole madness blaming HH. Why are you not blaming the police or Presidential security team? They should have ensured the road was clear at least an hour before ECL was going to use the road. Did they ask HH entourage to get off the road? Nowhere have I read that he was asked and refused. All I hear is incapable security team discussing option how to or not to hit his vehicle. I am sure they knew they were not right in the first place, and any action would have raised an outcry. The security failed, and its not HH`s fault as he was being overtaken by ECL, was he told to clear off the road? This whole saga is unheard off, can only happen in Zambia. Both PF and UPND, we are fed up with your childish behaviour and lack of leadership

Jail this little piece of trash so we can achieve a little calmer of ice cold chilling shwa shwa shwa. I miss KK and FTJ. The duo would have already put this coward into context.

    • All these accusations by the PF are nonsensical. Like most well-thinking people have already said, where were the police sweepers with their BMW cars and motor bikes? And where was the so-called President rushing to because he spent close to an hour while the Nalikwanda was still doing the traditional rituals of docking? Where was he rushing to? Didn’t he have his so-called security on the Nalikwanda to brief him on the exact time of arrival at Limulunga? Ahhhh… Lungu is certainly CHILDISH. TRY TO GROW UP MR PRESIDENT! EXCITEMENT OF BECOMING AN ILLEGAL PRESIDENT, IMWE SI ISILA? REALLY, GROW UP, YOU ARE MORE THAN 60 YEARS AND YET YOU BEHAVE LIKE KENNEDY KAMBA WHO WAS MOST WANTED IN BOTH MONGU AND LIMULUNGA?

    • @Thorn in the Flesh, completely two different worlds between KK/FTJ era compared to current environment. The KK era was called, one party state and Kaunda was “wa muya yayaya”. FTJ`s world was that of recognising that power was sweat and was bound with making a revenge to KK.
      The current world of ECL/HH is different in that we are learning to be democratic, apples and oranges are not the same.
      BTW, your PF has no justification for locking their HH, if there was any valid reason, I tell ECL will not hesitate. I am sure he is already setting up the trap for HH, this incident is just one of those first steps in that direction. He is building up a case.

      ========================
      Listen to this quack with his low sense quackery comment. I put it to you that this is not over. Police, RTSA and law makers and enforcers must align HH to his status; as a mere citizen. Otherwise the country will be plunged into a nasty chaotcic scene. Is ECL so weak to tolerate HH’s folly? By the way, I have waited for 9 months for a punitive action against the indiscriminate harassment of ECZ by this hooligans.

    • YES! THERE MUST BE A STOP TO THIS NONSENSE FROM HH. HH HAS GOT NO MANDATE FROM ANY ONE IN ZAMBIA- NOT EVEN FROM HIS OWN PARTY. HE HAS NEVER BEEN ELECTED TO ANY POSITION AT ALL. THEREFORE, HE IS NOT ANSWERABLE TO ANY ONE BUT TO HIMSELF ALONE. ECL, IS ANSWRABLE TO EVERY SINGLE SOUL IN ZAMBIA. AS SUCH, IN ORDER FOR ECL TO PERFORM HE MUST BE PROTECTED BY ALL ZAMBIANS AND ALL SECURITY WING MUST ENFORCE THIS RESPECT FAILURE TO WHICH THEY ARE IRRELEVANT AND THEREFORE NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. IT WAS A BIG LATE DOWN ON THE PART OF SECURITY THAT THEY COULD NOT PROTECT THE PRESIDENT. THE WHOLE POLICE INSTUTION IS ROTTEN.

    • Some decades ago at primary school, teachers used to warn us to ignore foolish elements because whenever you engage yourself with them by-passers will not notice the difference between the two of you, you will both be seen to be fools. This is exactly what Lungu has been doing, tolerating HH. But one day the humble river will burst and a lot of lives will be lost. Is that what UPND stands for? Just to go to statehouse?

    WHAT HAPPENED WAS VERY SAD AND THANK THE PRESIDENTIAL GUARD HAS TO RESTRAIN THEMSELVES.
    HH AND HIS THUGS CEASED TO BE POLITICAL PARTY A LONG TIME AGO,THEY ARE NOW A REBEL AND TERRORIST GROUP AND ZAMBIANS MUST BE AWARE OF THAT.
    WE HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A THING SINCE KAUNDA’S DAYS.

The real President went first but on that road going to Limulunga it is not wise to drive fast especially your own vehicle. the road is very bad but because Lungu was using a government vehicle and without care if it is destroyed or no (fya Boma mentality) decided to cruise and caught up with the real President and you ****** want to blame the real President! matole yenu!

  3. The purpose of a political party is to get their candidate elected after which the official becomes a government issue.

    The people responsible for the security of a sitting president are the best of our security services. Mumbi has just told the world that our secret service is incompetent.

    Mumbi’s utterances are a clear testimony of how disorganized our system of governance is: every yoyo is an expert in matters which they are not trained let alone experienced.

We know PF and ECL are choking with envy over the crowd of people that welcomed HH at the recent kuomboka ceremony, they think HH stole the show which ECL should have enjoyed. Unfortunately Zambians are now feeling the pinch of PF poor economic policies. Look at the price of mealie meal compared to to the K35 they found it at, price of fuel, electricity tariff etc…………………….

The greed and Anger and wickedness and bitterness being portrayed by HH and GBM are acts that can bring civil war in this country. What makes someone to be jailed is because they would have committed a crime. What has made Mumbi to say that is because HH and GBM did an act that needs a response. You are busy criticizing Mumbi and not the cause. do you guys really want civil war in this country? uuuh God help us. You behave as if you do not read and watch on many news channels the consequences of this devil you are busy worshiping: Civil War!!! HH and GBM messed up period. They went to Mongu to show off.

  6. The Problem with PF is that it is so dysfunctional and fragmented with too many spokesmen. What does Mumbi Phiri know about the security details when Lungu is attending a Ceremony like Kuomboka? Why was the Road not cleared for Lungu? Lungu’s Vehicle Window was open so that he could have a Full View of HH being assassinated. Lungu just like the violent KZ is a Sadist who enjoys seeing blood being shed. The Western Movie Drama was chereographed by Criminal KZ. Lungu is desperate to retain power in the face of a fatal Petition. In a proper Court, Lungu knows he will lose the Petition and Power. Illegitimacy and the Petition are haunting Lungu and his fellow Criminals big time. # Let the Petition be heard in Court.

  7. Zambians will respect a leader they prefer who accords them respect too. Lungu and his PF should not take Zambians for granted by posturing as leaders when they impose themselves on Zambians. The respect HH is accorded wherever he goes is not by mistake. Its a reaction to what PF leadership has subjected Zambians to violence and killing of innocent citizens without justice to the victims. This effectively explains why PF want to house arrest HH and harm him as is the standard of PF rule. PF should earn its own respect.

Our presidential motorcade kills a lot of innocent pedestrians because of poor policing! Unfortunately it is all done in the name of security and no one sees anything wrong with that!

How the hell does a party president attempt to block the Presidential Motorcade with impunity? Does he know that failing to give way to a Presidential Motorcade is a serious offence that can lead him even to jail if not being shot on the spot? If he was harassed he was expecting to draw headlines instead of people watching and enjoying the Kuomboka Ceremony! HH can not take Zambia for granted. He failed to prove a point in CONCOURT over the pertition that his votes were stolen within the stipulated 14 days and it was checkmate for him and the UPND!!!!

    This country is truly lead by dunderheads..how can such utterances be tolerated. Does this silly woman know what the Office of the President is? How can a lawyer like Lazy seat there and watch his juniors spew out rubbish like this. If you want to protect Lazy 24/7 let him resign as President then you can protect him with PF resources if you will have any to even feed yourselves.

    This country is for everyone not one political party?
    Pictures and videos are there to see by everybody so va mumbi where is the Presidential vehicle being blocked?
    This propaganda will not help us delver to the people what you promised them.
    It is clear that HH has a following and any attempt to harm him will cause serious problems in the county.
    The only solution is to have the courts allow the petition to be heard so that the matter is settled otherwise you can not force yourself on people and expect people to respect you.

  19. When PF cadres went to endanger Linda Kasonde’s life at the LAZ secretariat, it was not an issue and Mumbi Phiri was as quiet as if she does not exist. Mumbi, let me educate you, everybody is equal before the law, the guy who overtook HH’s motorcade at Kuomboka and Linda Kasonde are equal before the law. so cry for both

OVAL HEAD must thank HE the republican president for saving his life. He should from this day go and kneel to the kateka and thank him. His political career could ‘ve ended in a sorrowful way. And these cretins here are busy ignorantly supporting what their tribal leader did. You people are cursed.

  22. If you look the education profile of PF leaders you can understand why they say things the way they say them. Three-quarters of them are mere grade 12s with some additions of Matero certificates. That’s why they can create a generative theme out nothing. For example, the ICC, Mongu-Limulunga issue, 7 years term, third term and so on and they take turns issuing empty threats. The do not know what to occupy themselves with other than petty issues. Can you confine HH to his residence we see if you really mean business?

  28. The desperation by exhibited by HH is nothing but psychopathy disorder, HH’s brain is rotten and doesn’t know were he is and what he is doing. Zambians did not ask this ugly chap to borrow millions of dollars he spent on the campaigns and the elections he badly lost, he did at his own stup1dity!
    13 million Zambians know and are happy with their President EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU, and what HH and his nephews are trying to portray is that he wants someone to blame for his death.
    Let HH and his UPND nephews realize that he has touched a very dangerous button, ECL is more than loved by Zambians and anyone who tries to plays tricks on him cannot last! HH, you have started fire you cannot quench.

What security reconnaissance measures did the Police take prior to a Presidential Mortocade drive on the route to Limulunga? At what point did the Police relax their security system to let HH and GBM snick into the arena at Limulunga? Did the IG actually monitor the performance of his Officers in Mongu? FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

  33. The fact is HH is supposed to show maturity.

    He should not be careless and allow even children to consider themselves more mature than someone who eishes to rule the nation.

    HH is capable of behaving better than he is doing.

    Even the last kicks of a dying horse are far better that HH’s behaviour.

    It is not our problem that his political career is coming to an end without achieving his ambitions.

We all stand to lose and at the end of the day many lives will be lost. It all starts with neighbour rising against neighbour the way it all started in Reanda! To Mr President and those close to him, LOVE is the only thing that establishes a presidency! HATE diminishes it. Mwanawasa was called all kinds of names – Cabbage, muwelewele, etc and suffered all kinds of humiliations at the hands of Sata, but we never saw the kind of hostility and state brutality PF is using on all its perceived enemies. We want the current president to succeed and leave a great legacy. This will not be achieved through the methods…

  39. This will not be achieved through the methods PF government is using today of oppression. What PF is doing is not different from what the colonialist did to our forefathers. The buck stops at the President! He can initiate the peace process. He must start to embrace all citizens. Love your enemies. Do good to those who may be giving sleepless nights so that there may be brotherly love again in this beautiful nation. It is very easy to say we go to war as some are already saying but do you know how wicked war is? Have you ever survived on grass? Have you ever been in a situation where you have to run for your life with bullets following you? We must be kicking in a very bad way. We should never take that route I pray.

  40. It all starts with hate manifested through injustice where you exclude certain ethnic groups from the economy. When people are made to believe they are nothing but second-class citizens, that becomes the point of irritation which leads to what we are going through now. We plead with those in the driver’s seat of this country to be more magnanimous, to use words that work towards building unity and peace! Let justice and love be without partiality. My citizenship is what should count and not my political affiliation! May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be on our leaders and all the citizens! May the love that has waxed cold in us be rekindled so that we may co-exist in love. If we love only those who love us, of what profit is that?

      You are impressed with HH’s leadership over UPND?

      And you think that he can carry the same to state house?

      He may be a businessman but as for political leadership, may be at patty level, and that party can only be UPND.

      And that is where it ends, no more than that.

  46. This Plan was hatched the Night b4 and ZPS, KZ,Lungu etc were part and Parcel of the Scheme of Arrangement to assassinate HH hoping to solve Lungu’s illegitimacy Problem. Lungu and KZ’s warped thinking is that having stolen the August 2016 Election they can solve Lungu’s illegitmacy problem by wooing foreign Heads of State to visit Zambia and Lungu visiting them. Lungu also thinks that Petitioners can be forced to recognize him and withdraw their Petition in Court. There is a definite thinking in the Lungu’s Camp that the Petition can be resolved by intimidating the Petitioners and in need eleminate them altogether. Lungu is risking plunging Zambia into a Civil War which will consume him, his Criminals and Election Riggers. Lungu is playing with fire and fire will burn him soon.ICJ…

    Any one who thinks Lungu is “a vital State asset” needs to take their head to Chainama to have masalamusi syphoned out! As for Mumbi Phiri, I can understand, it’s a diet of oral cum from Lungu she is swallowing that is dementing the wh.ore, she is sick!

  48. What can I say! Blowing non-issues out of proportion. I guess we have so much time to waste around an issue which Lungu himself didnt see it to be one. Why do i say so? Lungu was able to open the window and enjoy the so called “blocking, over-speeding debacle” coupled with the excitement accompanying the Kuomboka without any fuss. Who are we to waste time on such? I guess, i forgot that we waste time on trivialities. What can mediocres spend their time on anyway! Zambia the mediocre country!

This motorcade issue was planned by the dictator of Zambia out of jelousy when he saw that HH had stolen the show from him in Barotseland.

  53. Arresting HH and GBM over the Motorcade issue will further complicate matters for Lungu. This is another demonstration that there is no longer respect for Rule of Law, Human Rights, Good Governance and Constitutionalism in Zambia. If Lungu thinks that arresting the Petitioners will kill the Petition and give him the Legitimacy he is looking for he will not get it. He will find out that this will quicken his departure from State House. That will help the Petition Hearing Process in that International and Regional Bodies will see the urgency of hearing the Presidential Petition at the ICJ. Lungu should know that those who live by the Sword will die by the Sword.

Lungu and team have been warned on several occasions by many well-meaning Zambians against their crusade of replacing professional security officers with untrained cadres on ethnic and partisan lines! The clueless and unprofessional chaps he has for security should have known how you move a head of state! Don’t you sweep the road the way you do in Lusaka? How do you allow two motorcades to move at the same time? Is this how you move heads of state when they come for some meetings? To make matters worse, you leave the window open. Anything could have been thrown in there! Whoever was in charge of the president’s movement was too reckless and Lungu should get concerned with such security lapses in his security team and act…
