Director of Public Prosecution told not to entertain the treason charge aganist HH

Headlines Director of Public Prosecution told not to entertain the treason charge aganist...

Zambia Society for Public Administration (ZSPA) President Kelvin Esiasa has expressed sadness that the Zambia Police an Institution that is charged with the responsibility to maintain law and order has misdirected itself by placing charges that would not stand even in the layman’s language.

Esiasa said charging the Opposition leader with serious charges as stated by the Zambia Police and reported by the media is very saddening.

He has since appealed to Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Lillian Siyuni not to entertain such charges as the charges do not hold any water.

Esiasa urged the DPP not support the charges on the opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema and his aides because the encumbrances are just an academic exercise aimed at politicising the judicial system in Zambia.

He further stated that the charges on the opposition leader are just exposing weakness in the police service and their inability to stomach political pressure in Zambia.

The ZSPA President however noted that the treason Charge on Hakainde Hichilema should be considered as a governance ‘hoax’ whose motive is to divert public attention from Police failure and blaming the opposition.

He explained that the incidence that happened in Mongu is the clear indication of Police failure in their duties, adding that the high command should have been charged in this regard instead of victimizing the opposition over their slumber on duty.

Esiasa has echoed sentiments by some section of society calling for the dismissal of the Inspector General of Police to pave way for thoroughly investigation.

He further appealed to President Edgar Lungu not be blackmailed by the State Police and those in charge of protecting his life because such blackmailing will just cost the President’s image in the international community.

“we appeal to President Edgar Lungu not be blackmailed by the State Police and those in charge of protecting his life because such blackmailing will just cost the President’s image in the international community”

“The charges on the opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema and his aides are just an academic exercise aimed at politicising the judicial system in Zambia and the charges are just exposing the weakness in Zambia Police Service and their inability to stomach political pressure in Zambia and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Lillian Siyuni not to entertain ” Esiasa said

  1. Zambia is now worse than apartheid South Africa. Mandela would not have lasted 27 years in the murderous Mukobeko Prison.

    • Fire her.

      Treason is warranted.

      HH endengeared the highest office.

      We have lost two sitting presidents.

      Lungu was almost the third

      Unless you wanted that – you must agree with me that the book be thrown on HH.

      Our president almost died people

      Think for a second.

      Our president almost bloody died ! !

      Think about that

      Thanks

    • This is Mutembo Nchito’s job and Minister of information should be Chishimba Kambwili. Drunken appointments.

    • It is very important for any citizen to think through what he/she wants to do in relation to the constitution, and country’s laws. If you decide to trash the laws and constitution and go ahead to commit crimes, you only have yourself to blame. We need to start applying the law to all citizens regardless of their status. Cage all people threatening the peace of the country, and send warning to potential criminals in whatever form they are.

    • By the way NEZ should also be BB2016 fuseki ka mushota. The closest to your f.ucking president should be Nicola Sturgeon. What do you want from Zambia? Muselela kwakaba.

    • Only time will tell. This world has seen brutal men their end story are always bad and painful. From the times of Adolf Hitler to the time of Idi Amin, the later could not even be buried in his country such is life in many generations to come. You may not understand what HH is fighting for today but that day shall come when you will come to terms with his fights and wish you stood with him. But that would be too late and too sad. As the bible tells us “life is useless”. When you find yourself born and alive, next thing is to die. But what would be your legacy for the future generation and the generations to come.

    • THIS IS ALL JUST A SMOKE SCREEN. PF IS AWARE OF THE MEDIOCRITY BEING DISPLAYED HERE. ALL LUNGU IS TRYING TO DO IS INVITE INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS SO THEY CAN USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE FOR A FAILING ECONOMY..
      SAD DAY FOR DEMOCRACY.
      SADC WILL LEAD THE INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE..

    • This is a clear case of treason HH has committed.

      What will apply is not road safety but national security.

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

      Don’t think those guys who plunge their cars into buildings in Europe commit traffic offences – No!!

      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, which is treason.

      HH cannot claim in court the he did not willfully refuse to give way but accidentally did so.

      What type of thinking would that be – Mushipe’s?

    • But Ba Peace for Zambia, how many people where in that convoy ? If your augment of a vehicle being used to harm the president, why ain’t 60 drivers and all their passengers not being charged with the same case? HH may have damaged himself politically from that action in Mongu, but it is no way no a treason case..,

    • For your information. Those of us who feel aggrieved with this situation have reached a point where we are ready to take up arms. What they did to HH they can do to anyone. If you try to protest the police can shoot you with impunity. We may be left with no options but to arm ourselves and defend our freedoms. Don’t push us any further. This is just a warning.

    • Ask HH what his actions would have been if he was in Lungu’s position.

      Don’t chastise the Police for arresting law breakers. Justice must prevail.

    • Treason is defined as: “the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.”

      To all those *****s blogging out of ignorance which words in the definition fit what transpired in Mongu? If your son refuses to leave a seat when his father arrives home, can you say my son has taken over as a husband and head of the house? What disciplinary charges would you consider? Ubupuba fye bweka bweka. Do not approach such serious matters with partisan ignorance. With impartial Judges, the opposition leader will be cleared of treason charges and allowed to sue for damages to his property and more. Lungu and Kanganja are not the ones who will pay those damages, it is you and I tax payers who will fix the damage. And you are here…

    • Ba Peace for Zambia, or whatever you call yourself, muli chisuushi tata, think through issues and stop being mediocre in analysing of issues.
      Deep down your heart you know that this was just a set up by your P Fools mafiasos to corner HH but here you are pretending not being in the know and shouting crucify him even when you know he is innocent just because of your hatred for the man

      Grow up kapolli iweee!

    • Just look at the name “Kelvin Esiasa”!!we dont have such names in the North or East.so this “Esiasa”,should be one of the bantustans who only think about tribe when it comes to matters to do with HH.SURELY ESIASA IF YOU WERE A POLICE OFFICER IN MONGU,WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE?FORCING HH FROM THE ROAD USING GUNS?IF THE POLICE USED GUNS TO FORCE HH FROM THE ROAD,WAS HH GOING TO VE ALIVE TODAY?WHICH IS BETTER,RESTRAINING POLICE OFFICERS OR KILLING HH AND MANY OTHERS IN MONGU?why is this Esiasa not asking why HH never gave way to the presidential motorcade and why has HH kept on telling his supporters that soon courts will give him the presidency and ECL is in state house illegally?ONLY A F00LISH DPP CAN LISTEN TO THIS TRIBAL THING CALLED ESIASA!!!PLEASE MADAM SIYUNI,LET THE LAW TAKE ITS…

    • For common people dealing with police everyday no one has to force us to understand offence was committed in Mongu. We can see in video & are surprised by impunity with which crime was committed. Even when President is not passing we get arrested for simple offences as minibus drivers or pedestrians on the road & we quietly do time or pay fines where authorities find us guilty. According to some rich people if rich person has committed most serious offence in land he shouldn’t be subjected to same law as common people. Unfortunately for UPND there is pro-poor GRZ which won’t be understood if it doesn’t equally apply law. Even DPP is employed by people of Zambia no just rich people. Best approach is to be civil to avoid prosecution.

    • Test of the Zambian Justice system. Shameful to see that PF are worse than MMD in their actions. Guess this is not the change people voted for.

    • Olo nikufuna recognition si so ba kristu ba lungu, first you deny to give them a permit to use a chopper, when they decide to use a dilapidated rural road which is roughly patched you still follow them even when you had 3 choppers at your disposal in mongu, i only used to see such behavior when i was a kid, when this guy would cry even for the little that you have, so that everything can be his, what pf did in mongu was purely childish.

    • @ 1.8 ManB,
      There was no coincidence involved.
      All the drivers in that convey defied the order.

      Thus, it could not be by mistake all error that all of them refused to obey orders.
      That implies they are all agreed, including the one that was carrying HH.

      The idea to do so could not have been born from a junior person because the superiors had the power to asses and accept only what was right.

      Therefore the idea was issued by or was commissioned or had the full blessing of the superior, who was infact in the participation.

      Thus, it was an instruction from their superior, their command, who was part and oarcel of that entourage.

      Therefore, the command bears the responsibility for the collective act. Leadership comes with responsibility.

      The sweepers are enpowered to…

    • The sweepers are enpowered to clear any resistance bro their command.

      Now if they had done so, wasn’t Lungu going to be responsible for that outcome?

      Were you going to say leave Lungu alone, just deal with the specific security person who cleared the obstacle?.

      Leadership baba is not for boys, it comes with responsibility and accountability.

    • Sad how Zambia has been messed up. I was in Namibia doing some consulting work, and one of the guys told me Zambians are regarded as thieves in that country. I told him, “I don`t blame you”. I scared to death to bring back my children to Zambia. Theft, tribalism, no rule of law, name it. What a country.

  2. He completely chooses to ignore what HH did, uses some feel good english then think it males sense. Look at HH as a law breaker on the mongu incident. Say the police must have cleared the road. Do not just say police before looking at the convoy debacle and what HH’s BAE 6099 did

    • In a motorcade of 60 vehicles on the road you single out one and give a charge of treason, this ridiculous to say the least. All this is being done to cover up police and govt incompetence.

    • How many times did PF cadres block RB and Kunda’s convoy when they were in opposition…go back to history. In those instances…completely blocking the road for Michael Sata…was MCS charged for treason?!

  3. I agree with the author of this article. The Police actually failed in this regard. If they are trully trained, they can not fail to handle a few civilians with no military training at all. They were going to remove them way before the President even found them. We as a nation can not support this sluggish police behavior. Treason charge is really a waste of time by the dull police officers.

    • I agree with you and the most important thing to do at this stage is understand the meaning of the word Treason. Was he trying to overthrow the government or had intentions of harming the head of state??????
      1. He as in a convoy and the speed they were driving at should also determine how quick the could stop the vehicles. If the first vehicle applied emergency brakes what could have happened to the cars behind?? It would definitely been a very sad story now.

      I can go on and on. I have respect for both parties especially if it involves lose of life. But police should have done a better job by making sure the road was clear for the head of state to pass.

  4. The presidential motorcade requires both lanes all the time not necessarily for road safety reasons but for security reasons.

    Please understand that, that HH will not be charged for careless driving (after all he was not driving), but for security bleach.

    The argument that he was not driving dies not hold water, because when you are being driven by a personal driver, you are in charge of his conduct in the road.

    You stop this driver when you want him to stop and tells him to turn when you want to.

    You are fully in charge and answerable to any matters that may border on security, while he may answer one or two queries regarding traffic.

    • HH cannot just head towards Namibia, and force his way onto the Namibian side, without stopping at the border checkpoint, and then claim it was not me driving it was my driver.

      While his driver may be given traffic offence charges, HH will answer more serious security breach charges.

      That very act would lead to many charges on HH, because HH is fully responsible for the behaviour of his personal driver.

      So those who joke must stop and think twice, if you think HH has no case, think twice.

    • HH has no case here to do with treason thats our argument but a case to do with traffic disobidience. By the way why have you people singled out HH leaving the entire above 60 entourage which included GBM. Its been long that lungu has been enticing a tribal war to break between known tribes. Remember non of you will be smilling if any civil war breaks. The so called presidents will be hiding somewhere while you crush each other. Never shall you allow politicians to separate you. You will one day leave to regret it.

  5. Just look at the name “Kelvin Esiasa”!!we dont have such names in the North or East.so this “Esiasa”,should be one of the bantustans who only think about tribe when it comes to matters to do with HH.SURELY ESIASA IF YOU WERE A POLICE OFFICER IN MONGU,WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE?FORCING HH FROM THE ROAD USING GUNS?IF THE POLICE USED GUNS TO FORCE HH FROM THE ROAD,WAS HH GOING TO VE ALIVE TODAY?WHICH IS BETTER,RESTRAINING POLICE OFFICERS OR KILLING HH AND MANY OTHERS IN MONGU?why is this Esiasa not asking why HH never gave way to the presidential motorcade and why has HH kept on telling his supporters that soon courts will give him the presidency and ECL is in state house illegally?ONLY A F00LISH DPP CAN LISTEN TO THIS TRIBAL THING CALLED ESIASA!!!PLEASE MADAM SIYUNI,LET THE LAW TAKE ITS…

    • @Njimbu wats wrong you guyz?Though He/She(ESIASA) is not from your NORTH or EAST the fact is He/She is a Zambian citizen.My wife is from North/East and we are very happy to be together stop promoting TRIBALISM.

  6. Simple Question!
    =============
    Did HH give way to the President or Not?
    Keep watching the video of Mongu fracas…….. Esiasa!

    …….. Let’s respect the highest office and stop politicking always……

    A_I2017

  7. Just advise HH that the Bible says obey those in Authority, you will be helping solve this problem.

    But if you will ignore when HH disobeys authority but when police enforce law and order then you complain, you will be helping amplify the problem.

    Romans 13:1-2 says:
    “All if you must obey those who rule over you. There are no authorities except the ones God has chosen. Those who now rule have been chosen by God. So those who opposes the authorities opposes leaders whom God has appointed. Those who do that will be judged.”

    • Romans 13:4 says:
      “The authorities are God’s servants for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of rath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”

      So, God expects everyone to honour those in authority, and those in authority to punish wrongdoers.

      So, show such scriptures to HH if he claims he is a Christian.

      In fact it is the pride of refusing to recognize Lungu as president that gave birth to hiim refusing to give way to presidential motorcade.

      But you know pride goes before the fall.

    • Olo nikufuna recognition si so ba kristu ba lungu, first you deny to give them a permit to use a chopper, when they decide to use a dilapidated rural road which is roughly patched you still follow them even when you had 3 choppers at your disposal in mongu, i only used to see such behavior when i was a kid, when this guy would cry even for the little that you have, so that everything can be his, what pf did in mongu was purely childish. Peace for Zambia stop reading the Bible upside down.

  8. The intention is to harm HH and destroy the UPND. Now there is a statement that HH has been poisoned. Those who hate him with a passion will be too happy to hear that he has been killed. They did the same to Mazoka. So where are the UPND MPs, Party Leaders at various levels, the Chiefs, International Community when all this barbaric behavior is going on? How can a simple traffic matter where no one was hurt be blown to such proportions? These levels of hatred are excessive!

  9. like the game of case, ECL & HH made their moves, but it was a fool’s mate for someone.
    a Good General Knows when to retreat and when to advance……. only fools keep on moving forward even when they see danger!

  10. Esiasia, what do you know about Law? Let the legal minds deal with this issue. It it were in West Africa, East Africa or North Africa, HH and almost everyone in his motorcade would have been dead by now. Don’t trivialize this issue. I urge you to advise HH to respect authority and humble himself before man and GOD.

  11. Eisiasia, whatever they call you, what type of chipasha are you? All Zambians are live to the fact that this thug HH has been pushing his luck way too far and mundende you, the Zambia people who overwhelmingly voted for President Lungu into the Presidency Office have been been seeing the impunity and stup1dity your HH has continued to display.
    The same international community that you keep referring to am sure have seen that nowhere in the world can someone disrespect the Presidency of the country in the manner we saw in Mongu! The treason charge slapped on HH is therefore in order and long overdue. Remember this is the same politically failed leader how has been saying that Zambia doesn’t have a President, just what wrong with you chaps? HH has dared Zambians for so long and now it’s…

  12. @Mushota,
    Sata died not because of anyone else, fyali fya kuiletelela umwine ukutemwisha saana nyele ch.ikala ulya. He like Chiluba both died of AIDS. With Lungu, we all know his HIV status is very positive. I mean who has unprotected s.e.x or just se.x at all with the likes of Dora or Mumbi Phiri? Imagine with Dora, the whole Kasaistan Mupalama has ploughed through and now Lungu through joint metering with the Kasai is now exposed to amalwele a baKasai like Ebola AIDS fimi fimbi! Anyway, Lungu does not need HH to kill him, he is a dead man walking already, lilulu lahae limucile kale inamunungu yoo, akaiseleze!

  13. This matter will make or break the DPP it’s a very big challenge her Legal proffission she has to show her worlthNess than listen to pf cadres , please DPP the legal profession in Zambia and abroad is watching you don’t turnish your name do what is written in law books not listening to uneducated PF cadres. Thank you!

  14. 2 Fuehre

    That’s why we are in Southern Africe and not in West Africa, East Africa or North Africa. And besides, Barotseland is another country where HH’s their beloved subject. He had more rights to be on that road than Lungu. Mwamba also ku buLuba eko a fumine kumo kwine MbuywaMwambwa who founded the Loziz came from, like Mwamba and Mwambwa! So bafana ba Kumawa, muzisunge when loitering on the roads of other countries, stop kulimonesha ta coming with long motorcades blocking other road users from using the roads, ala!

  15. Ku Zambia kwabipa ama politics tayaweme nangu pamo Iyo. What you need to know is that God is not asleep to see all these things happening in our Country. Twachula na Lungu we don’t know where he is taking the Country.

  16. This is a young lady who was hounded by former fat desk lawyer and ex-wannabe dpp. She is sharp I know her to be a well seasoned prosecutor and not one who first sat at a desk had a legitimate sitting DPP removed and then assumed the same office after blowing his cash from donors on an airline he had no clue on how to run…he fell flat owes billions and now has caused his ex-business partner to assume fugitive status having fled from paying his tax obligations! So leave Siyu alone she will work wonders and the sorry piece of an opposition self styled six time loser will face the full wrath of the law!

    • When she rubbishes the case to a mere bleach of traffic rules you will hear the PF cadres screaming and threatening her what a bunch of thieves and hateful cronies. This is the worst leadership Zambia ever ever produced.

  17. Always citing International Community. In fact it’s the same international community that caused the endless war in DRC. This is our problem and we can solve it ourselves without involving the imperialists. Because IC opposition leaders have been detracting ruling government from development issues by their unbecoming and destructive conduct. It pleases the imperialists when they see us expending our energy on trivial things. This way we shall forever dependent on them

  18. The Whole World is laughing at Lungu and Zambia. It has never been heard that obstructing a Presidential Motorcade could attract a Treason Sentence. That is Traffic Offence and not a Treason Crime. This is Set Up to detain HH for long periods and hoping that the State will resolve the Petition Problem with intimidation and imprisonment. The root cause of all this is the 2016 Disputed and Petitioned Election. The imprisonment of HH will not solve Lungu’s illegitimacy. Only a proper hearing of the Petition in an ethical Court will resolve the Dispute and the Winner declared by the Court.

  19. How will one prove that HH committed treason against the president who he thinks is an illegal president?
    Where was Lungu declared president?
    What was the judgment of the concourt? Was the constitution followed?
    The pending presidential inconclusive case will stand on the way against a treason case. The presidential petition conclusion would have helped fix hh. As it is, it is a waste of time by the police and an exposure of incompetence by the powers that be.
    Who can tell me how the petition was concluded? What was the declaration of the concourt as required by the constitution?
    Can the dpp and the police prove that Lungu is the president with support of the constitution?
    This is the beginning of the petition hearing.
    The legal battle line has been drawn.

  20. THIS IS A CASE WITH FOUR CHARGES and ABOUT FIVE ACCUSED! TREASON IS THE GRAVEST CHARGE IS TREASON WHICH THE PROSECUTION MAY EVEN DELAY TO OPEN WITH and before they touch HH, they may start with other co-accused and as we are debating, these FIVE ARE COULD BE KEPT IN SEPARATE LOCATIONS and the FOUR MAY TURN INTO STATE WITNESSES TESTIFYING AGAINST HH that HE ORDER THEM NOT TO LEAVE THE LANE and that is what may complicate things for HH!! Those who may be following issues of post election violence, HAVE YOU HEARD OF ELISHA MATAMBO SPEAKING VOCIFEROUS AS HE USED TO DO BEFORE BEING DETAINED AND RELEASED UNDER NOLLE PROSEQUI?? THAT IS WHAT STATE MACHINERY IS WHEN YOU DARE IT!!

  21. He Committed treason the very first day he refused to acknowledge a legitimately elected President.
    The state (Police) have been very good to him because they kept on ignoring him.

    This time he went too far…

    So let the law take its course. As a nation we ought to be disciplined. Such levels of indiscipline cannot be
    condoned anywhere in the world.

    In other countries, HH and the wailers would have been shot on site.

  22. You know what those who say treason charge is fine for HH, i think they are still children because an old man or woman cant think like that. who was almost died? what are u talking about? everyone was waving and laughing, please if you were not there its better you keep quiet. you can throw someone into the river but life state that someone else will throw u into the same river. You could have ordered the judges to keep on adjourning the petition case not to silence HH like that. PF are celebrating, what do you celebrate when a fellow Zambia like your self is charged with treason then you start signing around remember we all have one master and that is God, in all situation God is above

  23. What’s interesting is that most of the comments are coming from people living aboard. I thought you have learnt how to behave in a civilised why? It’s sad that you low yourselves to this level.

    Mushota you need Jesup in your life, this is Easter hope you will receive salvation.

  24. the way people comment one can clearly tell that they first look at their partisan affilliations. if one is pro ruling party then you know which side of the coin and opposition the same. its not about the issue at hand. some bloggers dont even read. anyway social media at the disposal of ignoramuses can be a lethal weapon for a country’s self destruction.

  25. PF has always been trying to arrest HH and GBM, so they have ever been looking for an opportunity like what transpired in Mongu. These bunch of hypocrites are really determined to silence the voice of the opposition in this country. The biggest problem with the entire PF govt and it’s cadres is hipocrisy. They think Zambians can be led simply by making simple good political pronouncements here and there whenever pipo question their misdeeds. PF minions, God will harden your hearts “The Pharaoh” style over release of isrealites from slavery to an extent that you will be failing to distinguise right from wrong that’s when the almight God will strike on you and if you dare resist his will over the Zambians you will die like king Saul when he tried resisting the annointed David as the king in…

  26. Viva ESiasa..sense ..please pump sense in that ka gal..we know she’s under duress from the pf thugs..but let her use her heart and mind to judge..ka mushota kalihule fye..get lost

  27. @Chilankalipa wHt HH did in Mongu was endangering his life and worse enough of the Presidents life which puts the country in danger. You have restricted your analysis and based on that you do not recognize ECL and as far you are concerned nothing can happen if he dies. It may even be more Treasonable if it was vise versa. Sorry. HH has entered political oblivion and irrelevance. He failed to understand his limits. And if he is left scot free on this one the guess of the situation which will prevail is not difficult. “Simply no President and insult the President the way you want”

  28. POLICE ORDER VS MENTAL DISORDER

    If HH suffers from some mental disorder, as madame Deputy Secretary General of the ruling party alleged, why harass the poor soul?

  29. President Lungus approach to politics clearly shows Chawama mentality. You do not do that shame the devil if you are a child of God as you repeatedly claim. Prove you are a child of God remove politics, legalities and what you call separation of power. Let’s see God and your intentions.

  30. I’m a layman but the moment I heard that HH had been charged with treason I laughed it off. This case will not go anywhere. For me the indictment should be against the police and the president’s handlers. Never is the history of this country have I ever heard of the presidential motorcade overtaking other vehicles and for that matter a convoy of vehicles. Why did the police not clear the road before the president’s motorcade used it? It the road could not be cleared, the president had the option of a chopper? Where was intelligence is this whole saga? This are the questions we should be asking and not just be subjective and political. The president’s handlers failed in their duties and the axe must fall on them.

  31. Yaba ba Zambia it’s a shame! You have no capacity to think and do the right things for yourselves. Governance, business, politics etc are all a sham because outsiders and foreigners have to do and speak for you while you continue bickering. Over a straight forward issue you debate without basis and insult each other to death. Always blaming one another, pointing fingers to others and hating others with such vengeance as a pride of lions on a carcass! You just support so you can ‘eat’ to the exclusion of others who are either quiet or have dissenting views. This country with this current leadership that at least does not inspire me is headed for doom. Is it really lack of education or what? Even educated fools can’t seem to reason with their heads when eating but with their bellies. I…

  32. I would have spoken to the President but my voice is very faint ,I will talk to God to talk to the President.
    A M E N…

  33. OK Ok OK. We are all arguing which shows there are strong arguments on both side.

    Let me put one question to all of you .

    IS DEMOCRACY APPROPRIATE FOR AFRICA ?

    SHOULD WE GO BACK TO PRE-COLONIAL AFRICA WHERE THE CHIEF IS OUR LORD AND HIS SON IS THE NEXT CHIEF. FINISHED. Meaning we have a leader who rules like a monarch with absolute power.

  34. By virtue of telling the DPP not to proceed with the case, you are are interfering. Let the DPP do her work and let the courts do theirs.

  35. How did this Esiasa become president of this queer organization? Is he Congolese or Somalian? Stupid fool he is.

  36. some *****s kwena, so you thought hard and this is what you could write Esiasa? i think you seeking attention you foool, where the hell is the pride of our nation if we are going to allow citizen behave the way hh did? you must be drunk, we need to send a msg out thre that you dont mess arround with number one’s motorcade, had the president crushed and died what because of hh’s stupidity and bigheadness what would you be saying today, or is that what you wish for?

  37. PFs are in two categories, those who are Thugs and Cadres! Their language is shallow lacking substance!

  38. When there is a security breach and the president is exposed, the first thing to do is to establish what led to the breach. What was the security plan for the function and what went wrong? Summon everybody who failed to perform their duty and charge them accordingly. For example, Amos said that a decision was made to overtake the other cars and that did not put the president in any danger. Who made the decision to overtake in such a hostile environment? If you are driving a president in risk area, how should the motorcade move? I want to believe that, firstly the windows will be closed, PERHAPS the eagle plate will even be removed so that no can tell easily which vehicle is carrying the president, was driving the president along that road the best option? I think the Chopper was the best…

  39. contin
    was the best and the safest for the time. It’s the first time I have seen the presidential car with an open window. Was the window open so that the video can capture the President which will go to prove that his life was threatened? If the tinted windows were closed, one could have needed proof that he was actually in the car. Anyway, whatever the case, it was a risk not worth taking. One day things might just go wrong.

  40. It’s academic exercise.Vexatious and frivolous charge..there was no attempt coup détat like what Mwaba Luchembe did to Kaunda’s govt or Steven Lungu alias captain solo did to to Chiluba’s govt they both annouced that they have taken over govt.unlike hh he is just being persecuted in this caseFor him he was travelling to a ceremony if he commited an offence there where 600 police men+ those already in Mongu area to mount a roadblock and impound all the vehicles in that convoy but that never happened.Now as usual there option is to target one man Hakainde in the whole Scenario.Democracy in Zambia is slowly being killed in order to silence all those in opposition.

  41. Zambia Society for Public Administration (ZSPA) President Kelvin Esiasa! All these mad man societies in Zambia.

    No respect to rule of law or the duty of judiciary. Why and under what authority did this buffoon instruct DPP not to ‘entertain’ a treason charge. What role in prosecution does ZSPA play? Observe if you must, hold an opinion if you wish, but that opinion is yours alone.

  42. when god rejects you, you can do all sorts of things in the eyes of the people but the lord all mighty god will save you . remember the story of king…. and david . when you try to treack god you cant go anywhere. may the all mighty god s hand prevail on this.one..

  43. What is treason? In summary, treason is to overthrow an elected government through unlawful means. Now that means to take over completely. In the Mongu issue, let’s assume (God forbid, ECL was killed), Inonge Wina would’ve taken over and of would still be in power. This means treason doesn’t apply. The proper charge should be failing to obey traffic instructions & endangering the President’s life. The President himself has said that Zambians don’t read & I believe him. Most people don’t even understand what treason is….

  44. If the Pertition is heard and comes out that in fact HH won the elections and not ECL should they continue to charge ECL with treason? Things change bane the very weapon u make against someone can turn on you. God is great. Do to others as u would want them to do for u.

  45. Common knowledge is not common,and education is so important which this government lucks,do these guys understand the meaning of treason,this IG sound like a grade 5 kid,treason treason shame on you

  46. Some comments are so imature. Just wondering whether they’re helping or worsening the situation at hand. If Lungu is wrong, he is wrong, if my mother, father are wrong so they’re. If hh is wrong so be it.By the way, can they prove it that he was in the vehicle purported to have blocked lungu? More money to the lawyers.

  47. If there was any failure to be cited on the part of the police on the presidential convoy in mongu, it was failure to eliminate the obstacle (including by gunshots). UPND and HH must be grateful to the police for not following through with recommended security protocols!
