Hakainde Hichilema

Opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has finally been charged with treason by Zambia Police .

Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja told a media briefing that Mr Hichilema has been jointly charged with five other people with treason and three other criminal offences.
“I would like to inform the nation that we have jointly charged and arrested Mr Hichilema and five others with:

1. Treason contrary to section 43 (1) (a)
2. Disobedient to lawful orders contrary to section 127 of the penal code.
3. Disobeying of statutory duty contrary to section 126 of the penal code of the laws of Zambia (rule No. 222 of the High Way Code), and
4. Use of insulting language contrary to section 179 of the penal code.”

Mr Kanganja said those jointly charged with Mr Hichilema are Lastone Mulilandumba, Muleya Haachenda, Walace Chakwa, Pretornous Haloba, and Hamusonde Hamaleka.

He said the police had closely analysed what transpired in Mongu district of western province on Saturday the 8th of April 2017 were the UPND leader Mr Hichilema and other persons in his entourage obstructed the Presidential motorcade.

“It has been established that the opposition leader disobeyed police orders to give way to the Presidential motorcade on Limulunga road in an attempt to put the life of the Republican President in danger,” Mr Kanganja said.

He said the dockets of the case would be taken to the Director of Public Prosecutions for further dealings.

Mr Kanganja stated that the police had been unable to charge Mr Hichilema yesterday because one of his lawyers had requested that the other lawyers be present but they never showed up.

He said the lawyer had then requested that their client be charged today with all their lawyers present.

And 12 other UPND members have also been arrested for obstructing police officers in the due execution of duty which is contrary to section 250 (b) of the penal code.

“I wish to reiterate that the actions by the opposition leader were unreasonable, reckless and criminal. Therefore, members of the public are being warned that as police we are not going to watch such kind of behaviour by any person irrespective of their status or political affiliation. We shall ensure that all those that would want to cause unnecessary anarchy are arrested and prosecuted.” He said.

  1. This fiasco demonstrates the lack of astute political leadership at top level of this nation both in opposition and the governing party. You wonder who advices our leaders in government. The events of the past two days don’t bode well on our economy.

    • If anything one will know by the end of this exactly what kind of country Zambia is. What kind of leadership and opposition exists and what our courts, lawyers and police force are made of. More importantly what kind of security provision was made, how it was used or abused and the mindset of all involved. This is not about how irritating one person finds the other or who thinks who is the true president. The active president believes he is right and is a lawyer. That is the saddest truth. The facts will not support the charge of treason. Another charge might have stuck but not treason.

    • I repeat, the charge has zero dividends to both camps not even to the common man on the streets or our hinterlands. There is absolutely no reason for a Zero option whatever the explanation when the State has so many options at its disposal to contain school yard politics. The state apparatus can politically asxyphixiate opponents found wanting democratically ways. I have never admired politics of HH in recent months because they are self endangering but will never support zero options. Let’s build the country and political constituency on pillars of ideas and love.

      You are very tribal, who told you they are his worker? They are they his relatives, nephews and cousins…….. If you are Bemba, chances are that you relatives will be Bemba…. if you are Black, chances are that all your relatives will be black.

      And nothing wrong with employing your relatives, Sata’s cabinet was 95% Bemba and Lungu has more Easterners in government than any other tribe…..nothing wrong with that, everyone associates with his own. Think outside the box and you will enjoy life.

    • Well a clear plan to kill lungu has now been hatched by the RB camp so that when Lungu is finally assassinated the coup planners will just say its HH and his group who has killed Lungu and yet its the very people like Kaiser Zulu working with RB who would have carried out President Lungu ‘s assassination.

      A high level plan to either poison in beer or just kill Lungu has just been leaked though Lungu himself says its rubbish , my friends can not do that. Well, they say the one close to you is the one who successfully plot for demise.

      The whole plan if successful is to remove all Bembas from power as RB wants to exact his revenge on them for conniving with Sata to remove RB from his presidency.

      President Lungu has just signed his real death sentence by proxy by yielding to Kaiser…

    • Mr President, with all my assurances of the highest consideration, I know you arrested Mr HH to try to evade hearing our Petition, but let me assure you Sir. HH is or was not UPND neither is UPND is HH. SO, having explained myself, the whole UPND family still demands that the Petition should be determined ASAP. If it will call for the temporary calling of HH from prison to be testifying, so be it. We are now under GBM in the meantime. So dont celebrate. We have even been made stronger and united by your arresting our Leader HH. ALUTA CONTINUA!

    • HH, even after 10 years if being in politics he has remained an under five.

      He always miscalculated. He contradicted the international election observers by rubbishing their findings then calling on them to support his desire to go to State House.

      First of all he undermines the intellect of the international observers that they joined Lungu in his perceived ‘stealing of vote’, and then goes ahead and calls for their support.

      Now it is this miscalculation; he commits a criminal offence in view of the entire nation and even international community by blocking presidential motorcade, which act has been condemned by all well-meaning citizens across the country.

    • But his plan was that when he is arrested people will rise. But how can you openly commit a crime and think people will speak for you, instead of presenting yoursrlf as law abiding to win the support of the public.

      Everything about him and his UPND is ‘dununa reverse’

      No one can follow UPND’s reasoning, not even themselves.

      One time they insulted those who don’t vote for them by calling the d.ull and fo.olish for not voting for HH, but a year later they went back to the same people to bless for votes.

      After their expired petition, HH called the judges, thugs criminals, corrupt, Lungu puppets, etc. But they wish to go back to the same courts to be heard.

      It is reverse, reverse, reverse beyond dununa.

    • PENITENTIARY, JAIL, REHABILITATION CENTER, CORRECTIONAL SERVICE:
      HH IS BEING REHABILITATED.
      =====================================
      I am yet to understand if prison corrects irresponsible behavior. That said, I hope to see HH become a sane and better person after prison. Is a treasonable offence bailable bazungu? If not, I see HH kept away for a long, long time. Now, if HH will make prison a frequent place to be and never learn good manners from there, we have a problem. GOOD NEWS – ADVISE; the last word to all opposition leaders, take time to understand the Laws of Zambia for you to be equipped with the knowledge and chance rule this country. Wild lawlessness and allegations do not help. We shall give you enough rope to hung your hopeless selves with.

    • Last month we were laughing at how dictatorial Kabila was after he issued an arrest warrant for Moses Katumbi. Little did we know we have a weak insecure tin-pot dick-tator in state house.

      Not even Mugabe as evil as he is has imprisoned Tsvangirai to death.

      The arrest of HH is bcoz of lungu’s petty jealous:-

      – HH has a bigger house than Lungu
      – HH is a crowd puller than Lungu
      – HH is wealthier than Lungu
      – HH had a bigger convoy at Kuomboka than Lungu
      – HH’s refusal to recognize him especially especially when UPND boycott his address of parliament
      – HH snubed lungu & left with the crowd just before lungu’s kuomboka speech

      Lungu has failed to solve the country’s economic woes. HH’s arrest is a distraction for the suffering masses

    • HH WOULD HAVE PROMOTED TROUBLE IN ZAMBIA IF LEFT LOOSE. HE DESERVES WHAT HE CALLED UPON HIMSELF. LOSING ELECTIONS UPON ELECTIONS DOES CONFIRM THAT HH WAS NOT ACCEPTED AS A POLITICAL LEADER. IF HH IS A DICTATOR IN HIS UPND- WHAT IF HE HAD TO BECOME A PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA? HE WAS BECOMING A LOOSE CANNON EACH AND EVERY(UBWACHA)DAY. HE REALLY MESSED UP POLITICS IN ZAMBIA. MASSIVE POTENTIAL LOSS OF LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED BY HIS ARREST AND CHARGE.

HH IS A VERY THICK TRIBALIST WHO WOULD HAVE CAUSED CIVIL WAR IN ZAMBIA. GBM IS JUST AN ILLITERATEBLIND FOLLOWER. EVERY TRIBAL ASPECT/TRAIT IN HH IS WRITTEN ON HIS BITTER AND HATEFUL FACE. HH IS SIMPLY NOT FIT TO BE ZAMBIA’S PRESIDENT. THERE ARE A LOT OF INTELLIGENT TONGAS OUT THERE WHO CAN LEAD ZAMBIA IF VOTED TO POWER THROUGH A BALLOT BOX. HH IS A SERIOUS DISASTER IN WAITING.

    • There is something about Zambia and Zambians that one should not count on. As a citizen the country leadership will not come to your aid when you need it and when it comes to association one should not count on Zambians to save a fellow Zambian! Zambians are a docile breed nowhere close to their Zimbabwean neighbors when it comes to militancy or even West Africans with Nigerians taking the top slot! If as a Zambian you find yourself far from home better befriending a Zimbabwean or West African and you’ll be sure you have someone watching your back! Within country Zambians are deeply divided to fight any cause for the benefit of the nation. I have no idea what could lead to transformation for unity both as a nation and a people united on justice and equal rights! No argument against this…

He is just an ordinary citizen like myself and there is no way he can be obstructing the way for our President. Cage the idi.ot and let him rot in jail. He must know that he lost elections because we Zambians rejected him 7 times now.

  3. HH you are on your own. The bemba man (GBM) fooled you by advising you to be radical. Our great nation has one law for every Zambian. The arrogance you have displayed this far is not befitting an opposition party leader. When you are an opposition you should know your limits. Your under five politics will not do you any good neither will it help our country. We know you came close to scooping the presidential seat but it was not enough.

      When someone is charged with “using insulating language” you KNOW they have got no real evidence and no case in LAW.

      PF has been insulating everyone left right and center. How many prosecutions for “using insulating language” have there been?

      This is the most disgusting miscarriage of Justice carried out by those people SWORN to uphold Justice in Zambia.

You guys who happy with what is happening to HH, you will regret one day when Lungu’s wrath is turned on you. All HH is trying to do is fight the injustice, the lawlessness that Lungu has brought upon us due to his shear incompetence. Do you know why Lungu wants to get Zambia out of the ICC, and why he only associates with Museveni, Mugabe and Zuma? Wake up you Zambian before its too late, Zambia is in deep trouble, you have clueless gangsters in govt who are only interested in serving themselves.

  9. As a PF supporter i really feel bad that President Lungu seems to be so clueless on political strategy. What he has done is ordain HH as the next President of Zambia. During Michael Sata’s time, on the copperbelt cadres forced Rupiah Banda off the road to give way to Sata. If Sata was charged for treason PF would not be in power. The politics Edgar is practicing are small mind emotional politics. Since August elections, 9 months down the line the President and his Minister of Finance have failed to articulate Zambia’s economic programme and the President’s focus will be diverted further on petty things that add no value to youth unemployment. Edgar should come down before he crash lands. His days are getting shorter in State House as each day passes.

  10. It is indeed sad for matters to come this far. As likeable/mildly tolerable, a nuisance HH is in Zambian politics, his conduct has been beneath contempt for state and citizen. Can a Man’s criminal deeds be ignored indefinitely? Never is the answer. HH has had copious chances to pull himself from the edge, but just went on from outrage to outrageous behaviour. He left no stone unturned from Judiciary to State Head in his insults, in an attempt to make himself a victim. You make enemies with and go before the same to be tried when your guilt is long established?

      The political stage has been juvenile to serious criminal long enough to clean it up. If one sudden won’t give up, then one sued must become the overall head. I am sure Zambian Defence and Police are ready to put down a coup. Let Peace Reign in Zambia.

Accepting different points of view is a universal challenge that many, particularly those who like the sound of their own voices…consistently fail at up here. No subject is debated. Just sides shouting each other down with a smattering of self righteousness. LOL.

NOW WITH THE TREASON CASE IT MEANS HH IS POLITICALLY IMMOBILIZED which could have been a different situation had he continued hammering on the wrong deeds of the PF and Lungu instead of lowering himself to the position of “DEFACTO PRESIDENT” WITHOUT REAL POWER! AND NOW,… GBM ACTING PRESIDENT? STATE MACHINERY IS “QUITE BAD” WHEN USED AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL AND IN THIS SITUATION THE STATE MAY DELAY THIS CASE JUST TO KEEP HH IN DETENTION AND THAT IS WHAT MAY RUIN HIS POLITICAL CAREER AND HIS PARTY UPND! They may bring up other cases now related to defaming the President, inciting violence etc.

    • You mean a lesson to Lungu?

      As I said, this is just a serious road traffic offence, it is not a treason case, far from it. And by the way, HH was not the driver. If you are driving and caught for a road traffic offense, you as a driver will face the consequences and not the passengers. Any lawyer, even a student of law at UNZA would win this case.

      Any injustice or law which undermines a people must be fought. It is better to die once for what you believe in than live a million years at the whims of other people. Change doesnt not come without struggle. Even Kaunda had to fight the law of the land so that you and i can have a country we call zambia.

  19. The charge are not well crafted and the DPP will drop some and leave others. Treason does not hold in this case. The grounds have no basis. This is a traffic offence that does not amount to treason……
    Look at the issues of Mutembo tribunal and how the state lost . The Mutembo matter is not indictable at law. The state will never prosecute the case.
    Equally , this treason case is not going anywhere. probably the traffic charges . The right charge may be dangerous driving.
    Read section 43 of the Penal Code and study the elements of treasons. Capital offences which carry death sentences need highly prosecution evidence which must beyond reasonable doubts that there was mens rea and actus rea.

HH HAS BEEN INSULTING EVERY INSTITUTION OF GOVERNMENT. HE CALLS ECL AS A HYENA. HE SAYS THERE IS NO PRESIDENT IN ZAMBIA. HE INSULTS THE JUDICIARY AND THE CHIEF JUSTICE THAT THEY ARE THUGS AND CADRES. THE SPEAKER HAS BECOME A NONENTITY TO HH. AND THE POLICE ARE INSULTED DAY AND NIGHT. THESE ARE INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN RESPECTED BY MANY ZAMBIANS WHO NOW FEEL OFFENDED BY HH. THIS WAS A SERIOUS MISJUDGMENT BY HH. NOW THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
      1. THE CASE WILL DRAG ON AND ON
      2. UPND WILL SPEND THE REST OF THEIR TIME GOING TO COURTS OF LAW. AND WE HOPE THIS TIME THEY WILL NOT BE CAUGHT UP WASTING TIME WITH IRRELEVANT PRELIMINARIES.

  22. And ladies and gentlemen, this is how the Bembas took over a Tonga Party.

    They first got their own into a Tonga party and ensured he was vice President. They ensured that the Bemba party exported the most violet ambassador known as GBV. Alas , GBV did not disappoint and he literally turned the Tonga party into a violent lot with cadres with marks similar to PF under Sata in opposition , something totally strange to the old members of the Tonga Party. But since they old guard Tonga boys feared their leader who bank rolled the party, they could only stand and watch.

    The last straw was to cause mayhem in the Tonga party to attract a treason charge. And now with the Tonga leader incarcerated the person in charge is now a Bemba boy.

    That is how the Bemba took over a Tonga party…

The Lord will see this and He might be upset with you and decide not to punish your enemy. @ Nubian Princess: With that hatred God will punish you and all those rejoicing with todays event. Mind you one figure in your heart is pointing at HH, but 3 fingers are pointing at you. Sober people just feel sorry and will continue to pray for the Nation at large. Lesa alitwafwa tapali chachitikepo ichabusanso. Pray for HH – God is able to change him to sober. Why has this happened during this Holy Week? To believers these are the signs of the devil trying to bring confusion in our Country. God Protect Zambia: Amen

    How do treason arise in the purported obstruction. I thought the other motorcade was speeding without obstruction otherwise it would have not overtaken
    How many people were on that road.
    So what instruction did the traffic police give the other motorists. Did they signal them to stop or give more space?
    Chiluba used to drive himself sometimes without asking anyone to move off. I think it was during mwanwasas time that roads started to be closed and a police stand at every road

I think people have forgotten what went through as a nation when the then VP, LP Mwanawasa (MHSRIP) was involved in a car accident on his way to the airport. The same could have happened again with the Presidential Motorcade. The HH entourage then arrived after the President and Litunga had arrived at the arena and proceedings were already underway. I feel even if he does not recognise ECL, then he should have at least respected the Litunga. He actually de respected the Litunga as well. Just my opinion.

This is no longer an emotional hullabaloo but an issue that tests the very sanctity and security of our nation. Whether you support Lungu or you support HH is nolonger the issue now. This is about the soul of Zambia. The law should not be ignored because you support Lungu and neither should it be enforced just because you are HH. If we lose sight of this reality, we belong to the jungle and not fit for a democratic dispensation. RULE OF LAW SHOULD BE FOR ALL ZAMBIANS INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT. So please let us approach this issue with the facts and realities that are there and stop political hallucinations. It is not good for our nation.

    He always miscalculated. He contradicted the international election observers by rubbishing their findings then calling on them to support his desire to go to State House.

    First of all he undermines the intellect of the international observers that they joined Lungu in his perceived ‘stealing of vote’, and then goes ahead and calls for their support.

    Now it is this miscalculation; he commits a criminal offence in view of the entire nation and even international community by blocking presidential motorcade, which act has been condemned by all well-meaning citizens across the country.

      No one can follow UPND’s reasoning, not even themselves.

      One time they insulted those who don’t vote for them by calling the d.ull and fo.olish for not voting for HH, but a year later they went back to the same people to bless for votes.

      After their expired petition, HH called the judges, thugs criminals, corrupt, Lungu puppets, etc. But they wish to go back to the same courts to be heard.

  58. God is watching.HH my brother it is written in Hebrews that he will not abandon you no forsake you. God is your tower of refugee, man’s plans are not God’s plans. We are praying for God’s intervention. The Lord has used you to help the poor, his eyes are not deem not to see your good deeds. Don’t worry God will visit you in your trials. Those who are jubiliating will be put to shame. God can turn the tables in a brink of an eye. Stay strong God bless you.

    • A thief is caught by police, then you say to him don’t worry God is watching over you.

      Man’s plans will fail, they will not succeed – are you sure.

      Those words work better where no offense is committed. Not when you are being prosecuted as reward for commuting offences.

  59. You reap what you sow and HH has been insulting almost every Govt institution and ECL has not been responding despite him provoking him everyday. Sata was different and you cannot use someone else’s strategy to win support – when you provoke things you cannot handle don’t cry foul when they backfire in your face. The only problem we have in Zambia is that everything is tribal especially between Tongas & Bembas; insults and name calling is the norm so until we realize that we’re but brothers & sisters we’ll continue to witness these ugly scenes for a long time to come. HH is not a saint neither is ECL but be real guys let’s respect each other and allow the love of God to flood this nation…then we can truly say Zambia is a Christian nation. God bless Zambia!

  60. Lungu is useless, HH is useless and a tribal man not fit to be Zambia president, all opposition parties and leaders are useless too but the most useless of all are the youth, majority of the uneducated citizens and policemen that are allowing this. Police in Zambia are working for Presidents and not the Zambian People. When I come back to fix all these atrocities in Zambia, I will first fire all the useless Police and Soldiers..we actually don’t need all these soldiers that are leaching the already broke Zambia, then we will actually start afresh by rehiring only qualified Police personnel that are going to work for all Zambians, not just me and my party. They will respect the law. We will build Zambia to where it should be, not all this nonsense and always begging from the West…

  61. Treason carries a death sentence.
    the other offences section 126 and 127 carries each a two years sentence and section 179 carries three months.
    The simple questions is that section 126,127 and 179 can never be the elements of treasons and stand one as felonies.
    Treason have elements separate from sections cited. when one commit treason, he must be prosecuted under section 43 and it takes precedence over those sections

    • Now precedent is not a natural phenomenon,

      Precedent has a starting point, that is the first judgement of a particular kind of case may set precedent which may also be called judge made law.

      So if this king of offence committed by HH is the first of its kind where someone refuses to give way to the presidential motorcade, which is willfully posing danger to the head of state or willfully threatening his life, the the judgement cannot make reference to any precedent as is will mark the beginning.

      How, in future if another man decides to willfully pose danger to, or threaten the life of the head of state and the security of the nation by refusing to give way to the passage of presidential motorcade, then the ruling of this case may be cited as precedent.

  63. POLICE SHOULD NOT HESITATE TO USE THE TOOLS IN THE LAW BOOK
    ===============================
    No one is above the law, not even ECL, MCS post-humus,RB, FTJ post humus or KK.
    Remember KK was incarcerated by FTJ who used a piece of legislation to fix KK. From that moment the later in his old age has learnt how to behave soberly in this high politically charged terrain. There is no excuse to tolerate HH’s irresponsible behavior. Something had be done to protect our laws, stop future overzealous political newbies and to put HH and a few of his surrogates or UPND pundits into context. The LAW shall apply to all emotionally charged political Zambians in all areas.

  64. The belief in non recognition of Edgar Chagwa Lungu should not be an offence of treason, it is a matter of conscious and can not be forced on Zambians. I am one of the millions of Zambians who believe should not recognise Lungu as a legitimate leader of Zambia. This is as true a fact as his failure to charge all the millions of Zambians with treason.

    • What reconciliation do you want Lungu to make?

      And reconcile with who, and over what difference or conflict?

      Can you just walk in the streets and ask someone to say mwana katuchita reconcile without having had any conflict or difference.

      If Miti says to John, ‘mwana how can you marry this woman? As far as I am concerned you are not married, and I will never accept that you are married’.

      How does it become John’s duty to reconcile with this man called Miti? Should he on that account tell Miti, ‘yes am not married mwana’, so that he can reconcile with Miti?

      Come on, what reconciliation are you talking about?

But standing on top of an anthill to tell the whole country to toil your line is treasonable because you are preaching anarchy. Worse still, you engage in activities that put the life of the President in danger just because you have chosen not to recognize him.

  65. I just cant wait to see the in-coming UPND President assuming power and lead us to State House in 2021. The UPND President-in-Cells clearly stated that UPND was not going to go for a Convention meaning GBM is the Sole Presidential Candidate for 2021 !
    I am sure I will be insulted etc but by now one must understand the position that HH is in:-
    1. He will not be convicted for Treason but the other lesser offences thus permanently removing him from the Political platform forever. (Edgar being a godd Christian will later pardon him BUT the conviction will stick)
    2. The UPND Constitution which GBM shall have to abide with bars a Presidential candidate with a criminal conviction to lead it leaving him alone to stand and he will choose a Running Mate who is not from the Bantu Botatwe posse…

  66. Both HH and ECL were at faulty. My only advise is that we should respect the office of presidency which does not belong to ECL or HH but the people of Zambia. In this case, both used the office to settle their scores. HH was at faulty to obstruct the motorcade but one wonders, where was the police, OP & other security agencies to allow the such a situation because they must have seen this coming? My take is this, ECL team were well aware of HH schemes & knowingly played his game. In short, HH played them & they saw an opportunity in this in this. We would like to see a full report of what really transpired and why the police failed to perform their duties properly. This is not about politics or settling personal differences but its about our country Zambia. I would challenge the IG to…

  68. HIGHWAY CODE: CHAPTER 7 RULE 222

    DUTY OF DRIVER TO STOP FOR THE STATE MOTORCADE

    222. On the approach and during the passing of the State motorcade
    the driver of every vehicle on the road shall stop and give way to
    the Presidential and other VIP motorcade. No vehicle shall
    overtake the motorcade.

    What HH committed is a simple traffic offence NOT treason. At no point did any vehicle in HH’s 60-cars convoy try to force LUNGU’s vehicle off the road. Actually it was the other way round. The video is there to see. Unless your opinion is biased.

    • And what will apply to the treason case is not road safety but national security.

      What HH committed was not a traffic offence but a national security offence.

      Don’t think those guys who plunge their cars into building in Europe commit traffic offences, dont deceive yourselves that the guys are charged with traffic offences and failure to obey highway code – No!!

      What HH committed was not a traffic offence. HH refused to give way to the head of state after being commanded by the presidential motorcade sweepers.

      That means HH willfully chose to endanger the life of the head of state, thereby willfully threatening the security of the nation.

      That is the case if treason he has been given.

      HH cannot claim in court the he did not willfully refuse, but that he accidentally…

    • @peace for zambia: Which car was being driven by HH? Maybe as a passenger you expect him to telepathically control 60 cars?

      If HH’s convoy of 60 cars had intent to cause harm they could have easily crushed Lungu’s 8 cars. The video is there.

      HH is not the 1st zambian to ignore a presidential motorcade. Don’t tell me the man who ignored FTJ’s motorcade in the 90s was charged with treason! Or maybe the law is applied different according to how you hate that person?

      HH is a Zambian citizen just like you and I.

      How do you bring in the issue of tribe here?

      Who told you that HH used ‘tribe’ to refuse to give way to the presidential motorcade, and chose to endanger the life of the head of state?

      Even if it was any other person who chose to lead a delegation and did what HH did he would have been carpeted.

      Would you have said that his tribe is heated?

      Everyone belongs to a tribe, now are we going to be saying each time that a thief steals that a tribe has stolen?

  74. What are the grounds for this, to amount to treason? Lungu worshippers and vuvuzela’s of a good for nothing government do not understand that the real breakers of the law are the pathetic failures themselves. Contrary to what some people are saying here, violence, uncivilised and barbaric behaviour came with the arrival of the PF -which is a rag-tag collusion of individuals mobilised from all sorts of unsavoury callings, to share resources while pretending to exercise a form of governance. What rule of law? – when we know cases of PF individuals in government ‘dying a natural death’. Very convenient to ignore corrupt practices and criminality involving PF politicians but ready to go with all guns blazing to tramp up charges or perceived ‘unruliness’ in the opposition.
