Heavily armed Police officers raided the residence of opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema in New Kasama area in Lusaka.

Police switched off power at the house, blocked the main roads and the broke down the gates to the house to gain access to the house before firing teargas into the house.

It is believed that Mr Hichilema and his wife and children were in the house at the time of the raid.

Mr Hichilema’s lawyers were initially prevented from accessing the house but Jack Mwiimbu confirmed that he was later allowed inside after 01 Hours.

Around 03 Hours, police officers were still inside the house and it was unclear what they were searching.

Mobile phones belonging to all the people inside the house are now unreachable.

Police Spokeswoman Esther Mwaata Katongo said police will issue a statement later.

And MMD President Nevers Mumba condemned the police action at Mr Hichilema’s residence.

“We are just witnessing more teargas being fired at the residence of UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema and state Police have surrounded the entrance and even his lawyers are not allowed to enter,” he posted on his Facebook page.

“This comes while another opposition leader, Savior Chishimba has announced that he is in hiding for fear of similar intimidation from the Police, Fred Members is in hiding for fear of similar state intimidation and GBM, the UPND Vice president was earlier today teargassed for talking to the press after his court case,” he said.

“Is this why the PF wants to withdraw us from the ICC? We demand that this kind of targeted intimidation of the opposition must come to an end immediately. We also implore the international community to quickly check independently, the state of affairs we are quickly being plunged into as a country,” Dr Mumba said.

      As much as Human Hyena (HH) made a serious error and has been stoking the fire with his usual childish antics at the expense of providing an objective opposition which the nation needs this action was not necessary. You don’t need to use force with a weak cretin such as HH. The President’s advisors continue to provide bad advice to ECL which is sad! HH has committed many other crimes starting from privatisation, the running of his business etc as well as the Namwala violence and it only takes a committed team of investigators to bring him to book on these past issues. Don’t make a martyr out of this chief Dunderhead!

      At some point, THE STATE has to start taking matters of NATIONAL SECURITY seriously! What Ichilema and ‘Katubi’ GBV did in Mongu bordered on matters of National security. If they don’t recognize this fact then they are indeed !D!OTS and deserve to be reminded in and rude way who is in charge—the STATE!

      Even the response given by their SG, Kakoma, shows the lack of maturity towards issues concerning the SAFETY and SECURITY of the REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. The mishandling of which have seen countless countries plunged into untold miseries and wars. HH and UPND need to be very careful.

      Musonda Kateule. You have spoken sense. He brought all this mess on himself. Why pick a fight with the president? It is obvious that the president will want to prove that he is more powerful than you. The Bible clearly tells us to say if it is honour you owe your neighbour show it. Am tired of advising you HH.

      Wait. This over the too.

      Can’t stand HH but this is hounding, victimising and wat over the top.

      The police didn’t do their job protecting Lungu.

      But two wrongs don’t make a right.

      Kanjanja knows because of the motorcade scandal he will likely be fired.

      But this is scrapping so low and unjustifiable.

      While I do not accept the police use of excessive force in executing this action, it must clearly be registered in HH, GBV and the entire upnd that their reckless behaviour had consequences.

      Its undeniable that upnd enjoys massive support in Western province but thats no reason to behave in a cantankerous and foolhardy manner
      Leadership comes with responsibility which must be exercised responsibly.

      This just confirms what I mentioned yesterday concerning the ECL / HH saga.
      “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.”
      That was a setup to justify today`s police action. There will be so many cooked allegations coming out of this search. One of them is “Treason”. I am surprised a batch of these bloggers who yesterday were condemning HH yesterday, now they are changing their mind and calling this victimisation of HH. What made you change your mind?

At your 27 years, you lack experience and your accumulation of papers is just that.MBA should have taught you critical analysis, but I see you lack that tremendously. Just see how you have flip flopped on this case. You blamed HH and then went on to agree with Mumbi, and now you are back to condemn the police for having not done their job. A reasonable person knew this already that Police was wrong, ECL`s entourage was wrong. They are just building up a case to get HH.

    Sadly my fears are now confirmed. The incident in Mongu was always a SET UP to carry out the arrest on TREASON as promised by Mr Kampyongo only last week.

    But you cannot charge someone with treason for merely not recognising you, thus Mongu presented a great opportunity to not be missed.

    This was entrapment.

    Kanganja and his cohorts must be fired for failure to protect our president similarly be fired for brutally harassing a political leader simply because of wanting to do more to please Kampyongo who should also be fired again for putting the name of our abled leader EL through yet another embarrassing episode.

    What we as Zambians need to know is we have institutions and we expect these institutions to perform and once we have institutions being non functional we end up with crises like this.

    Lungu should not be blamed for this he can’t have a hand in this now. He can only pardon after the courts rule.

    @5 Chisenga, if the police behaved professionally in Mongu then they know what they are doing and professionally too. Why else would they need a sledge hammer to kill a fly. If they suspect something fishy it’s their duty to find it, otherwise if something happens we will be the first people to accuse them of failing to do their work.
    So if the search or whatever yields nothing, they can apologise, no problem.

      In a democracy the opposition plays an important role. Kuomboka attracted thousands….Many on foot… Traffic would be jammed in a region where roads are deplorable…Good thing is nobody was hurt. So let’s focus on developing tolerance towards others. We are a Christian Nation….If HH committed a crime…You don’t gas his house at night when he has a history of reporting to police stations whenever summoned. We can do better than this

I am PF but I confess that this is a finished country. It is not necessary anymore in this century for Police to be using stone age colonial methods to silence opponents of the government.

The whole transport issue could have been handled wisely by his team e.g use a helicopter instead of unnecessary confrontation. The truth is 50% + of Zambians do not like or recognize him as a legitimate president. It took PF and MDD combined to steal the votes. Now people will remember only the PF-UPND drama about the 2017 Kuomboka. I don’t even know what the ZP IG and ECL’s chief of protocol are still doing in government offices.

    It reminds me of Mugabe set his police to beat up Morgan Tshvangirai, or when Museveni police brutalized opposition leaders or even the last days of FTJ when he felt powerless & used police brutality to intimidate opposing voices.

    Zambia is a officially a Banana Police Republic. LUNGU who just last month was at Jesus’s tomb praying in tongues, only knows police brutality:-

    He used police brutality on Fred Mmembe
    He used police brutality on GBM
    He used police brutality on UPND cadres during election campaigns

Look protecting a head of state is something else. if we do not want to resspect our leaders let us forget about voting.

So say Lucifer was chased in heaven because He never respected GOD’s authority as used this on HH case is tantamount to blasphemy for President Edgar Lungu is not GOD.

    HH IS AN ATHEIST, BIG TIME. HE CLAIMS TO BE AN ADVENTIST ELDER, A SABBATH KEEPER. ASK HIM WHY HE ADDRESSES PRESS CONFERENCES AND POLITICAL RALLIES ON THIS DAY.
    WHAT WAS HE DOING IN MONGU INSTEAD OF CHURCH ON SABBATH?

    DID YOU SEE HOW HIS CAR DANGEROUSLY SWERVED OUT OF THE TARMAC ROAD WITH ONE SILLY CHAP CLUTCHING TO THE DOOR?

    You are all forgetting the despicable state of the road on which these two gentlemen were being driven on. If you had spent money on improving road infrastructure, you wouldnt have had this problem. That road is all patched up and I wonder where HH motorcade was supposed to go in order to give Lungu space….was he supposed to take cover in the bush so menomeno can pass?

    After Adolf was again misled by the Great Bag of Maize aka Fat Albert, I phoned Pastor Pole Pole. I advised him to tell his new found friend to prepare himself for any eventuality. He assured me that Adolf would be advised accordingly. We met with obvious in Kamfinsa broke bread as we filled them in on the mongu debacle. We agreed that much as one might want to express discontent it should be done with dignity and not to refuse to yield to the presidential motorcade, hurl insults at ‘hyena’ and then walk out of the program when it was his turn to address the ceremony. He called his lawyer malita mu ship way but she has no chambers so he called jack. 2021 zamfo

    When all is said and done, Zambia is bigger than both H.E ECL and HH. At the end of the day, no politician in Zambia is worth dying for. We must cherish our lives and not allow selfish politicians to divide us. The same sweet speaking angels we see in opposition are the same devils we see when they ascend to power. So much time and energy is wasted fighting ourselves over people who don’t care that much about us.

    In his timeless 1810 novel entitled “The Curse of Kehama”, the legendary poet Robert Southey coined his immortal phrase, and quote: “Curses are like young chicken: they always come home to roost.” Nearer to home, Lungu should go ask Chiluba at his grave just how this statement came back to haunt the diminutive Iturian pygmy! He out of malice incarcerated Kaunda (Not that KK himself was a noble leader), he fixed Kasonde, McTribouy (for screwing his hippo). He them went on to dribble Zambians by illegally installing Levy who in turn naled Kafupi> The chap was so stressed he swallowed an overdose of mtototo to pleasurize himself but alaz he kicked the bucket. All these sins Lungu is committing, they will come back to haunt him one day.

    @Zero Boyz: You are really up to date with Prophecies. These things happen for a purpose. Zambian Christians (Not Christians for Lungu or HH). Every thing that happens be at a family level or National level to those with Spiritual eyes will see something. These things are happening all over the World in different ways. However Ba HH if blood is shed in Zambia God will ask you to pay for that. Be a patient person. If leadership is there for it will come the way Ba tata Ba Sata waited for Gods time. (MHSRIP) but if you want by amaka even the devil will laugh at you and yet is the same one tempting you. HH and GBM be patient for your time.

    Can they lock up that lawyer too? He is one of architects of HH’s antics which you can trace to his petition lawyers. You see, HH’ so lawyers abandoned him and his petition case a few minutes before midnight leading to and contributing greatly to his mischief. The lawyers knew that Hh had no evidence and therefore they failed to prosecute the petition within the given 14 days in the law. But instead of just admitting failure and close the chapter, they withdrew and abandoned their client thus giving the impression to the retarded donkey HH that the petition “had not been heard” and
    was yet to be heard. This is where we are now, with all sorts of claims, noise and excreta coming out of every possible hole in the UPNDonkeys who are incapable of thinking on their own, as donkeys are…

So what they have resolved to do is to do all manner of childish and dangerous Manoeuvres so that they bring mayhem to our beloved country. They have no shame and have nothing to lose because they already lost the 2016 elections.

    Edger Lungu will never work for the betterment of this country but will spend all the years of his presidency fighting his perceived enemies or those opposed to his views. Zambians please for once, wake up and see through the intentions of your president for this country. We have had presidents before but we have never reached such lowest levels of lawlessness where private citizens have gone into hiding for the fear of tyrannical type of leadership………………. They went for Fred M’membe on the pretext of not paying taxes, Dr Savior Chishimba for speaking out about the ongoing corruption, Dr Nevers Mumba for going to ZNBC, for Stephen Nyirenda of MUVI TV for GBM and HH for various accusations including provoking him on the road when he and his team were heading to kuomboka…

    This is what frightened tinpot dictators do. Lungu is so scared of his own shadow, he is using state machinery to prove how powerful he is. That’s how insecure in his own skin and stolen presidency he is. Only school kis use ‘I’ll teach him a lesson, we shall see who’s the boss and who’s more powerful’. That is a very dangerous behaviour and abuse of state power. ‘With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility’

    When HH refuses to publicly acknowledge the duly elected president Lungu, you call it democracy and freedom
    of speech. But when the state stands up to defend the integrity of the office of presidency you call it barbaric. So so hypocritical. That’s all I can say. You can’t grant HH democratic rights by taking our the state’s right to protect the president’s democratic rights. It’s not either HH or Lungu. It’s both. HH should bear responsibilities for going around the country blatantly disrespecting the president to cause his followers to disrespect president lungu. That’s not leadership, bupuba.

    This is preposterous! Its also shameful that some people on this forum can support such action. The reaction is barbaric, over the top and illegal. This is regardless of whether anyone has done anything. There are due processes and procedures that need to be followed – which this police force has rarely respected. Why not arrest someone normally instead of subjecting him and his family to such uncivilized show of ‘power’? Obviously this is from instructions – what a shameless government! Its not about what, or if any crime or disrespect was committed, it is about a lack of reasoning and a horrible reaction that could now have dire consequences.

    The Mongu saga is not on HH but on the Office of the President (OP). OP is supposed to protect the President. They were supposed to “sweep” the route the President was supposed to use and ensure that there was nothing that would endanger the President’s life. The advance vehicles should have stopped HH convoy. There is nothing to suggest that this was attempted and HH refused. OP failed to do their job so put the head of OP to task instead of harassing HH.

    I have taken few minutes to read the above article and comments from other people from both the UPND and the PF. Not in a position to judge anyone but it appears my future president HH is a victim in all this. The man and family is very rich I hear so. What exactly is he fighting for? putting his own life and those who love him like family and we supporters at risk? I for one I wouldn’t like any man under the son to die for me because one perfect man Jesus already did died for me and I have hope to live forever.

You have guts to even call us wild animals, considering the atrocities that Europe has had over the centuries. The latest having been the holocaust. I don’t remember any Africans being involved in this shameful event. The crusades that claimed so many lives in Britain and most of Europe all in the name of religion, or the roman empire conquests. What on earth are you talking about? Please for the sake of all that is good and peaceful shut up and mind your business. This is not your war. You are too outspoken for a visitor. We don’t need your opinion in this case. So its best to keep quiet.
