United Party for national Development (UPND) Livingstone District Spokesperson Neto Halwabala has observed that the Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonnie Kapeso is becoming a security risk to the country’s democracy and unity.

Reacting to a warning statement attributed to Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonnie Kapeso against the UPND’s Monday anticipated demonstration in solidarity of their incarcerated leader Hakainde Hichilema, Halwabala said the UPND has always engaged Zambia Police in a civilized way every time the party have plans for a public gathering in the province, but the response from the Police through Bonnie Kapeso has always been very primitive and provocative.

Halwabala has since accused Kapeso of having no regards for democracy and UPND as citizens in Zambia their constitutional rights has always taken been away with impunity through southern province police commissioner.

The UPND Livingstone District Spokesperson was quick to state that the UPND through Choma Member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa recently notified Police regarding a planned peaceful demonstration over the continued detention of their Party President Hakainde Hichilema, but instead of Mr. Kapeso writing back to the UPND in a civilized and professional way he chose to issue a threat as if notifying the Police over the peaceful demonstration was a criminal offence in Zambia.

He noted that Kapeso’s leadership is a threat to Zambia’s young democracy, adding that his behaviour is just promoting anarchy instead of maintaining peace and order in the Province which said the area has always been peaceful.

Halwabala has however advised the police in southern province to be sober and be professional in executing their duties, adding that the police should have respect for the rule of law.

“Bonnie Kapeso is becoming a security risk to the national unity and democracy” Halwabala said

    • Tonga people are the only.united people in Zambia. They inter-marry and live in all corners of Zambia. They even learlearn to speak other languages.
      Go to mansa and samfya and see agriculture projects by Tonga’s. These arere formerly casava belt, but now there maize, potatoes, onions, tomatoes eMkushi area have been developed by Tonga farmers. Go and check out the Mixed farmers market.

    • Bembas are illegal settlers in Zambia who came from Kola Congo, Cameron up north. Read Simon Kapwepwe’s books and know your background. Nguni and Ngoni from the east come from the Shangani people in Mozambique.
      Now who is the the settler here? Who is the homeless begged? Think check your facts and educate your.

  1. Zambia in democracy has a place for everyone to exercise and enjoy their liberties. I suggest you stop co-mingling your none compatible tonga only tribal dreams from civil liberties.

  2. WE HAVE TOLD YOU UPND THAT YOUR INTENTIONS ARE TO BRING CHAOS IN THE COUNTRY AND YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE IF THIS COUNTRY GOES INTO FLAMES.
    MICHEAL SATA-MHSRIP WAS ARRESTED TWICE DURING MWANAWASA,DID YOU SEE PF CADRES SEEKING POLICE PERMIT TO DEMONSTRATE?
    WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT HH?YOU WANT HIM TO BREAK THE LAW WITH IMPUNITY?WE ARE WAITING FOR THE RULING AND ALL WHAT I KNOW IS THAT OBSTRUCTING PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE IS A SERIOUS OFFENCE AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN JAILED FOR THIS CASE HERE IN ZAMBIA.
    IF HH WILL BE AQUITED ON THIS ONE,IT SIMPLY MEANS ANY PEOPLE CAN OBSTRUCT THE PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE AND GO SCOT FREE WHICH IS VERY DANGEROUS.
    JUST WAIT FOR THE COURT TO CONCLUDE THE MATTER.DEMOS WON’T HELP IN ANY WAY.

    • Yes and he will be acquitted. Why was he not arrested on the spot? Why did police wait until late at night to arrest him and the others if he was endangering the life of Lungu. Case is silly it should never have gone to court.
      This why Africa never advances, focusing on silly political issues goes to ones small head, and the majority follow like headless chickens. Zambia is falling off the chart of progress. A country once known and admired by many for its peaceful mature. Until the Bembas destroyed it like they done Congo

  3. The Zambian people are entitled to freedom of expression and association as enshrined in the Zambian constitution. Rule of law requires that people are allowed to do so as long as it remains peaceful. This a litmus test to PF who cry out loudly that they respect the rule of law

  4. Why not take the demos to CB, Lsk, Luapula, Northern, Eastern and Muchinga – the regions with minority support for HH. Doing so will draw the attention (and conscience) of citizens in these regions to HH’s plight, as well as give the UPND agenda a national character. And the campaign should be spearheaded by a non-Southerner, preferably GBM, being the Senior-most UPND member in the absence of HH. To do otherwise will only re-inforce the long held allegation that only a Tonga can lead UPND. Time for GBM, or his second-in-command to hold the reigns of UPND, not Mweetwa or any other Southerner for that matter.

  7. Truth be told,its actually UPND which is a great danger to our democracy-Mr.Halwabala!!what is practiced in Southern is not democracy but TRIBAL COLD WAR!!If HH is a national leader,why are people in 7 provinces not seeking permission from the police to demonstrate?am sure even those in western and N/western are not interested any more!!
    HH was said to having broken the law,so why cant his fellow tongas wait for the court to clear him?of the 3 charges he was facing,he was won two so far,meaning justice is prevailing.wait for treason case on monday to be committed to High Court or dropped.is that very difficult?FRED M’MEMBE WAS 100% RIGHT WHEN HE CALLED UPND A TONGA (BANTUSTAN) PARTY!!
    To ECL once IG Kanganja is dropped,please sir consider Mr Bonnie Kapeso or Mrs Charity Katanga in…

  8. @ANYOKO:so now you have taken tribalism to football too?shocking.
    What you fail to understand is that Northerners and Easterners dominate in Lsk,Kabwe,and CB towns where Zambian football has been played a lot since 1964.its only now we are having premier league teams from southern and N/western.U20 Conlyde Luchanga(Tonga) was discovered by Perry Mutapa in Southern 2 or 3 yrs ago.since he is talented,he has been given chance.We have had Kennedy Mweene,Hichani Himoode,Kennedy Mudenda,etc in national team.A COACH CAN ONLY INCLUDE A TALENTED TONGA,LUVALE,LOZI,IN NATIONAL TEAM BABA AND NOT EVERY JIM&JACK FROM THE SOUTH!!

  9. But why pipo run away from justice even when they see it clearly that there is justice prevailing? Kapeso and part members did u ask SPPC as to the reason why?

  10. Why are some people simply hostile to Tongas? This is the lack of democratic mentality that is slowly becoming prevalent in some quarters of Zambia. A few people would like to think they speak on behalf of the majority. There is simply no evidence of this except that some people have a tendency of being very vocal as a vocation to protect their insecurity. It is making some of us with mixed tribe marriage homes very uncomfortable. Every time Tonga this, Tonga that. Kids are asking difficult questions in homes and there seems no authority coming down to put the record straight. Government in particular must be seen to be level headed & be there for every Zambian. There are no second class citizens. We have always held peaceful demonstrations in Livingstone. Why should it be different now?

    • Becoz tongs are very very bad pipo. Ask those who have worked in institutions headed by tongs. Eg Anglo American Central Africa _from days of Mazoka upto today…. Tongas practice extreme Tribalism and St.upid.ity. From CEO to security guard all tonga…Imagining a tonga HE… It scares most non tonga Zambians.

  11. Halabalwa, hope I have written the name correctly, seem to complain against the platform the commissioner took to respond to a confidential correspondence to him. Obviously, courtesy here is not at work, and the commissioner should take note of this next time. On the other hand , while case of HH is under mandated wing to dispose of it, l believe it could be regarded as attempts to sway verdict by protesting. The public domain in which Mr HH is tried I believe have its face to save by resisting any forces to deviate from the law. Let harmony flourish among all Zambians!! Good day beloved Zambia

  12. Let’s not categorise tribes..all people have the same character flaws HH and FTJ both took part in the striping of state assets, VJ a former drug dealer just like GBV, those who say Bembas are thieves are pretenders who have never heard of cattle rustlers who are always Tongas or Ilas but then most illegal poachers and illegal fishermen are Bembas or Lundas from Luapula (wrongly classed as Bembas).
    On the other hand we have educated and hard working Bembas, Tongas, Easterners and Lozis etc in every field or career.
