A Medical Doctor of Luampa Mission Hospital in Luampa District in Western has been arrested for allegedly defaming Republican President Edgar Lungu.

Luampa Mission Hospital Director Sanki Chihinga confirmed the arrest of the Congolese Dr. Oliver Kanku.

Mr Chihinga said the arrest was made after Dr Chihinga  issued disparaging remarks against President Edger Lungu on his Facebook Page.

“Prior to the arrest the doctor complained of a fake Facebook name that was created in his name with pictures of the President and insulting language purported to be his”. Mr Chihinga said.

He added that the doctor also received death threats on his Watsapp
from unknown mobile phone number, the matter he reported to higher authorities.

The suspect  is in custody at Kabwata Police station in Lusaka pending court appearance.

  1. Very pathetic. Can we be told what the insults were because under this dictatorship saying anything against lungu is apparently an insult. Day by day we are losing our human rights while pf continue to increase their grip on power. People have been criticising me for naming my dog Edgar lungu. I have also received death threats but what I don’t understand is that I did not call Edgar lungu a dog but rather I called my dog Edgar lungu

    • Hmm this is a complicated issue..could his account have been hijacked by one of his workmates from kwahii or the same Congoli Dr is just cheating and he did post those comments himself? @Nez this is why you will never rule Zambia. Your style of insults is not a winning formula. When we were in oppossition the Late Great MCS (MHSRIEP) attacked Mwanawasa and Rupiah on issues- Sata started with the issue of taxes, then he focused on job creation but your Human Hyena god (HH) is a real dunderhead that has been rejected 5 times!!! You must be a bigger dunderhead to follow such a dunderhead.

    • Overt 1 in the charge sheet states that ‘Hakainde Hichilema while acting together with Wallace Chakawa conspired to organise a grand reception for Hichilema so that he declare himself President’
      But the same overt act in the certificate of committal states that ‘Hakainde Hichilema well acting together with Prestorious Haloba did organise an advance party so that Hichilema is accorded the status of President’.
      This has left lawyers wondering whom exactly Hichilema conspired with in overt act one whether it was Wallace Chakawa or Prestorious Haloba. And whether they organised an advance party or a grand reception.
      Whereas the charge sheet says Hichilema intended to declare himself President, the certificate of committal says Hichilema was to be accorded the status of President…

    • This is time to make sure all your enemies are arrested! Just create a fake profile, copy pictures from their social account and post against PF. It’s done!!!!!

      BTW, Why arrest someone who has complained of a fake profile? Hope the police this time did some investigation and not what they did with HH by forgetting to advise their President to close his window so as to pretend he was in real danger.

    • The next charge we’ll hear is that he is a fake doctor and living in Zambia illegally. Some police officers have lost their moral integrity. It’s actually difficult nowadays to trust many police officers for protection.

    • @Panda, it is all about intimidation and it is easiest with foreigners. Lungu has done this before with that Burundian priest from Chipata. People without a local base to protest will be easily victimised.

    • lungu brought this case on HH so he could divert attention of sleepy Zambians as he steals ZCCM-IH through an Israeli Shelf Company called SAPIR CAPITAL

      wwwDOTbloombergDOTcom/profiles/companies/1506041D:IT-sapir-capital-group-ltd

      wwwDOTsapircapitalgroupDOTcom/investment-management/

      Here’s one of FAQ:

      How does SAPIR deliver capital to its issuer clients?

      SAPIR, acting as AGENT, conducts public/private debt/equity offerings which are made available to SAPIR’s Investors who then individually determine whether they wish to invest in an offering. Thus, the amount of capital needed by the Issuer is aggregated through a “best efforts” syndication of participating Investors.

    • Some fellow names his dog Edgar Lungu and some people in their wisdom rush to align the name with the presidents! Leaves me wondering how many people in Zambia could be sharing the same name with the president! Only a dirty mind would want to make believe that the person who named his dog only meant to put the president into ridicule and the onus is upon those who think the dog was thus named after president ECL!

    • THIS CONGOLESE LEAVES ALONE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN HIS OWN COUNTRY BUT CHOOSES TO COMMENT ON OR INSULT THE GOVERNMENT THAT IS FEEDING HIM. IN CONGO HE CAN NEVER INSULT THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO HIM. IF HE IS LUCKY HE WOULD JUST BE ASSASINATED. IF NOT LUCKY HE WOULD BE THROWN INTO A DEN OF CROCODILES FOR THEIR DINNER. SEARCH ON YOUTUBE FOR ATROCITIES IN CONGO AND SEE HOW PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED WHO ACT AGAINST KABILA. DEPORT HIM BACK TO HIS COUNTRY IF IT IS POLITICS HE IS INTERESTED IN. THERE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH POLITICS IN CONGO. IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT, ASK KATUMBI.

    • Nez, be man enough. Stop dyning now. Do you keep what you blog at LT? You really are a disgrace. If that is what it means to fight for rights then I don’t want to fight. You should know by now that your insults are disgusting. Only a parent who is sick in the head can agree with your vulgar language towards the head of state. I therefore may not be surprised to hear that you have been picked by the PF CADRE POLICE (as you call them). An old adage goes “MWIKALA PATALALA MWINE APATALALIKA” literally meaning, he who seeks good cool surrounding he must take steps to cool that surrounding. Learn how to live with people. Respect every one in turn there will be no threats as you put it. Perhaps you have also seen that each time you insulted some other equally vulgar mouthed individual insults…

  4. We have returned to UNIP days. Now we have to look over our shoulders when discussing politics, even in our bedrooms. Shushushuz & PF00L cadres could be listening. The story is unfolding just like in Animal Farm.

    If Cartoonist “Yuss at Large” was still alive, he would be in Mukobeko now.

    – Roy Clark would have been deported.
    – Jowie Mwiinga would have been dealt with by ZRA
    – Lucy Sichone would have been dealt with by PF cadres in police uniforms

    • Which UNIP days are you talking about? If UNIP was as bad as you are implying, MMD would never have been born and KK would not have allowed early elections like he did.
      KK is the greatest leader the world has ever seen

    • Obviously you were not born when during the mealie-meal, coupons, food riots, then the mwamba luchembe coup & countrywide celebrations. KK was shaken for the 1st time & had no choice but to relinquish power. KK was considerate & wise. Lungu is dull, so the outcome will be different.

    • so let’s do the math together…13 attempts minus 5 attempts = 8 attempts remaining. hh is 56 years and let’s average each attempt to 4 years =32years. add that hh’s age and voila: 88 years!! Will you still vote for hh at 88 years after he has spent 15 in mukobeko?? kwekwekwkekwekwe…

    • Shutt the feck up! There is no tribalism in the USA. You can’t compare hh to Abraham Lincoln…Are you out of your mind??
      Sort out your hatred for other tribes first… How can you always think that one day your hh will be president when only Tongas and Lozis vote for him. You harbour so much hatred for the Bemba and Nyanja peoples, when the ethno-political dynamic in Zambia is very clear that THE North-East mbuya-ship in Zambian politics is so powerful that if you don’t befriend it, you have no chance of entering plot 1. FACT and it shall remain a fact till the kingdom cometh!!
      Learn to love other tribes, you Tongas and Lozis

    • Sakala-mutale

      Lungu only won by a disputed 100,000 votes
      That is same as 3 town ships in Lusaka so not sure if Tonga and Lozis make up that much of the voting population to give lungu that Margin.

  16. His colleagues wanted his job. Can you imagine Dr. Kanku rules the hospital alone over almost one year alone. The Zambian ministry of health could not get another Dr to send there as Luampa is a bush. According to Zambian’s system, each doctor receives a three years contract renewable. His contract ended since February of this month and and he worker two more months without having a contract. When he decided to stop with his duty and went to lusaka in order to start with the process of renewing his contract, then the sad story started. Being the only medical doctor at luampa mission hospital, he performed very well than other doctors in big cities, you can check this with your health minister and he will confirm. I know for sure that his innocent and that God will justify him.
