Calm has been maintained in Livingstone after Friday’s attempt by UPND members to protest following the arrest of their party leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso has told ZNBC News in a telephone interview that police have been put on full alert to ensure law and order are maintained.

Mr. Kapeso said the incident on Friday were some UPND cadres were allowed to reach the Livingstone central police is unacceptable and those found wanting in the matter will be dealt with.

He said Mr. Hichilema is not detained in Southern Province and at Livingstone central police in particular.

Mr. Kapeso has expressed disappointment with police in the tourist capital for not acting swiftly to prevent yesterday’s protest by the UPND cadres adding that his office will not tolerate officers who cannot rise to the challenge and deliver because of the

r hidden agenda.

Yesterday some UPND cadres holding placards went to the Livingstone central police station to register their displeasure over the arrest of their party leader.

  1. UPND supporters do not even trouble yourselves trying to get to EL, I tell you the truth, The same PF thugs who put EL in power are the same thugs who will take him out when they start ukunya ameshi, The poverty levels down already but have not reached a level that will awaken the PF thugs to realise that EL is a fake and clueless and the will raise against him, So UPND just buy popcorns and watch the movie unfold. PF will enter into a self-distraction mode when the time comes, Watch this space.

    • Very True!!
      Chakolwa is busy stealing, touring, drinking lutuku, & nursing hangovers while Zambia turns into a Poverty stricken Open Sewer.
      Just wait, remember K.K was even MORE POWERFUL & a Sober Strongman, unlike the alcoholic currently in office, & still hunger turned his most fervent cheerleaders against him, & it was KUYABEBELE!!!

    • Nobody hates ECL. The only thing people that I know hate about ECL are the values he stands for: Corruption, Violence, Tribalism and Drunkeness. Surely, these values must be fought by any normal human being of valor and virtue

  2. During One Party State from 1973 to 1991 Bembas were persecuted by Kaunda . He eliminated them out of politics.
    Kaunda created the position of Prme minister to offer Tongas and Lozis for 17 years. Then The Easterners were given position of Party Secretary General number in the country.
    Today Easterners are back again in power putting Bembas behind and committing violence against Tongas and Lozis. Then Tongas and Lozis are saying Bembas are persecuting them . Lungu is from Eastern Province, is at the helm so Easterners persecuting Tongas and Lozis. And very few descrantled element like Kampyongo, Amos Chanda and they come and pay back.
    Bembas founded PF it is now taken by Easterners.

    • @Njimbu, The country is quiet even after arresting HH because UNPD is not a violent party like PF and most of UPND supporters are educated and want to do things the right way but the opposite is the same, PF is a violent party and full of kaponyas, kabovas and the uneducated who only know violence as a means of survivor, if the opposite had happened Zambia would have been on fire by now, So Waite and see when your EL fails to meet the promises he made to them, Zambia will be on fire and the will raise against the saviour EL, just watch this place PF will destroy itself. By the way the work of government is to reduce poverty and better the lives of its people if Mwanawasa did in the same Zambia why can`t anyone do it, EL is bad for Zambia, he has no vision that is way he is always out of…

  6. JM:keep your tribal politics in upnd!!leave bembas and easterners out of upnd’s tribal politics.PF founded by a bemba late Michael Sata in 2015 and 2016 adopted an Easterner ECL and a Lozi madam Inonge Wina but still more than 80% bembas voted for these two who are none bemba.in upnd that cant happen.ask Sakwiba Sikota and Patrick Chisanga who could have replaced Mr Mazoka in 2006.tongas rejected these two on tribal lines.PF IS NOT A TRIBAL PARTY!!IN 2021 IF ECL AND BO INONGE STAND ON PF,THEY WILL STILL GET MORE THAN 80% BEMBA VOTES!!!if HH is convicted,another tonga will replace him and not GBM though that will mark the end of upnd because then even those few zambians who give upnd a benefit of doubt will prove beyond any limit that indeed upnd is a tribal party!!

  7. Even southerners must be disgusted at how childish their choice of president has turned out to be, a disgrace on their region…..how can they riot for such a shame?
    Bottom line is that NOBODY loves HH sufficiently to die for him. Yhst is why only a few cadres promised some chibuku march on the streets with their sponsors hoping for people to join the si..lly protest. They must be utterly disappointed……its called overrating oneself badaala.

  8. It is enshrined in our constitution that we have right to protest. But in a dictators head any dissent to their views is classed as uncalm. Zambia is a dictatorship . Very sad. But as history has shown all dictators die painful deaths. Lungu is next

  9. Njimbu are you a dullard or what, “povert has been in zambia since 1964 or even before” dont you this country to cbange and poverty levels to decrease. Stuck in the past stuck in your bigotry. That is why there is poverty and instability. Your illogical rants do not douse the fire you inflame it and are actually not helping the president orvthe country.
    I wonder why logic/analytical thinking isnt a subject in our schools so that this country can debate rationally without emotive rants.
    You will need a new keyboard soon, the same figures and letters keep getting touched

  10. @2 Please check your history. KK didn’t persecute “Bembas ” but UPP leaders. UPP was proscribed for promoting tribalism and anarchy. The UPP was formed because someone wanted to be Vice President, but since KK didn’t want one tribe to dominate the leadership, this someone felt he was being blocked from achieving their dreams. At the same time some people from southern province also formed the UP which became violent resulting in deaths among which was Mathew Nkoloma. KK banned this party too and detained its leaders at various prisons. To say that he suppressed Bembas is to twist facts in order to influence minds believe what never happened.

    • Ndanje, So you’re saying even in the past there was a Party from Southern Province that was VIOLENT?

      Is it a coincidence that even the current SP party is naturally Violent? Food for thought, and Thanks for the history.

    • This tribe tag is spoiling our politics. Why can’t someone stand as president without necessarily appealing and depending on their tribesmen and tribal cousins? The “we must rule ” syndrome will only make other people wary of your motives and what you may do once in power.

    • You should be worried because all you want is everyone to support HH. People who support HH are excising their right just as us who support Edgar have.

  16. If they are not happy with his arrest, then they should get rid of him as Party head and choose new one. Anyway that’s what they need to be doing right now, going for a convention for new Leadership.
