By Larry Mweetwa

Minister of home Affairs Steven Kampyongo last evening went on National Television with lies aimed at defaming my name and character.

He told the nation that they have evidence linking me to city Market inferno because I cerebrated and posted something immediately city market was gutted. Again I wish to put this clearly to the public that at no time did I post anything about City Market fire.

UK is 2hours behind Zambia, so it was about 03:00 UK time or 5:00AM Zambian time when city market was burnt.

I only came to learn of the city market inferno after the UPND Media Team contacted me in the morning that Kampyongo told marketeers at city market 13minutes after the fire that one Larry Mweetwa was the mastermind and this was followed by a media statement by Our mother ba Mumbi Phiri-PF deputy spokes person accusing me of having a hand in the burning of city market.

Upon receiving this news I put up a press statement vehemently denying the accusations as I posted nothing related to the burning of the market.

Later in the day I called my cousin who was running my T shirt screen printing business at city Market to find out the safety of our machines and he told me everything was destroyed.

I set up the T-Shirt printing Services purely to assist upnd Candidates especially councillors with limited resources to offer nearly free services to support our great party upnd. All that was destroyed and I can never rejoice to see such damage affecting million lives.

Pre emptying KAMPYONGO!

1. The picture and image Kampyongo is cheating the nation to defame me was initially circulated on social media by Kwacha times a PF propaganda mouth piece.

2.The account is Fake and was created by PF. instead of putting city Market images they put Kamwala Market! Can you see how dull your ministers are?

3. The 6hours time difference when the post was made and the gutting of city market does not match with uk time zone and the time of the inferno.

4. The daily mail further defamed me in their article saying I applauded the burning of Lusaka city market shortly after it started, that is a total fabrication, when in the actual sense I offered sympathy and prayers to our brothers and sisters who lost property in the inferno.

5. In UK we don’t use 3G but 4G gsm and no double sim. The post was fabricated by Mr.Kampyongo.

When a witch doctor fails to remove evil spirits from his patient, he will ask them to bring a dog’s horn. PF should first admit that they failed to offer protection and security of the market. And what Zambians need are answers not shifting the blame on innocent citizens.

What role do carders play in keeping vigil of city market since they are neither police nor armcor?

Why did it take 13 minutes for PF to know who burnt the market? Do they know something we don’t know?

Why didn’t the minister allow the police to carry out a thorough investigation before making unsubstantiated conclusion and worse off skewing the outcome by directing the IG to hunt for me.

Surely, the Zambian government will pay heavily in billions for this character assassination and defamation of my name.

Here below is the statement I posted when city Market was gutted and this is the only post I made regarding the inferno.

I therefore ask all well meaning Zambians to ignore the rantings from this taka taka minister Kampyongo and Our Mother Mumbi Phiri.

Press Statement
For immediate release.

RE:FAKE POST BEING CIRCULATED ON SOCIAL MEDIA BY PF CARDERS ON BURNING OF SOWETO MARKET.
_________________________
I would like to inform the public that the post circulating on social media attributed to me is fake news and has nothing to do with Soweto market.

This is an attempt by PF to avoid responsibility, shift blame and minimise the damage they have caused on innocent citizens of this great nation.

Kindly when you see such fake post from PF, take time and look at the two images they are totally different.

Our prayers are with the people of Zambia who have lost property and income.

    • Agreed. Sue this Kapyongo and PF chaps in their personal capacities. Let each one pay 10 million pounds in damages and donate this money to the poor Zambians. After all, these PF chaps are only doing two things: looting public resources and focusing on HH and UPND instead of the betterment of Zambian lives.

      There is lack of proper leadership in the country the other day it was max calling for the arrest of chishimba yesterday it was lufwekelo all in the name of the president!
      Mwebantu kumbali kutukwa imfumu!
      How l miss Kaunda he would actually fire people osati lungu who has no idea just threats and good at threatening kambwili and HH.

      Larry well done and very possible PF created a fake Facebook account in your name. We know them they planned the HH Treason case as they are very good at break our communities apart, in the same way they have brought tribalism in Zambia. The whole Vice President also caught up in the fake lies requesting for Interpol?? Very shameful. Sue them so that they learn a lesson.

I have told everyone that the fires were the work of PF to blame them on the UPND so that people will warm up to dictator Changwa; but their evil plans will backfire;

  3. Why do you tongalize everything? You are on record not only once of rejoicing in every calamity that many zambians go through because of your foolish and blind loyalty to up and down party. You think by staying in the UK ur clever than anybody. You should know that we are very much aware of how a zambian woman took you to the uk and you later abandoned her. You have been in the UK and terribly failed even to improve your vocabulary. Time is catching up with you thick liped monster.

    • I agree. I don’t really feel sorry for you, Larry, because you have behaved in a manner that is just careless and unpatriotic. If UPND is to come to power, they should not rely on characters like you who have no shame. You have lied so much that some of us who are not PF supporters would not mind you being prosecuted. How do you post a fake jail cell for HH? And those pictures from Nigerian civil disturbances were alarming! I bet you even go church and think that God is pleased with your fake news! Look not all of us like PF but your actions just indicate that UPND is willing to gain power at all costs (even if it means that the nation is brought to the brink of war). You better repent and change your ways.

  9. Reality has finally caught up with you Larry. You kept thinking you were untouchable and that you could dupe the Zambian people and government…
    **First, don’t lie to the Zambian people about the TIME DIFFERENCE- This is now British Summer Time and hence the time difference between UK and Zambia is only 1 hour (It will become 2 hours from October).
    ** Secondly, your postings from time immemorial has only been anti- Bemba-Nyanja and all others opposed to your supreme leader HH + UPND…
    ** Thirdly, anyone with any shred of intelligence would conclude that you and your Cousins working from City Market had a hand in this inhuman behaviour. YOUR TONGA LOT ARE A PROBLEM!!

  11. in grade 5 we read a story about Muno who use to lie to villagers about a lion coming to attack the cows. he lied for four times or so. the day the lion came to attack the cows for sure, muno shouted at the loudest voice ever, no villager believed him. he was telling them the truth but his past actions made them not believe him. the villagers lost their animals. this is the the same with you bro Larry. pipo are failing to believe you now because of your past; you actually might be telling the truth; but your previous commentaries on issues concerning your pipo and Zambia makes a lot of pipo not believe what you are trying to defend your self. my advice, for now take a low profile because whatever you say a number of victims still think you know something about it. it may true or it may…

  13. Larry:
    The best you can do is to come back to zambia and defend yourself. UK authorities have already taken note of you and from now on you should be very careful on what you say and do in UK.

    The fact that u have strong connections to City market not to say but simply printing free UPND T-Shirts is an indication of political sabotage because campaign time is over but you still busy printing things.

    Your words betrays you and I doubt your intellectual capacity too.

    • I do not know this Larry, what I gather here is that he is an economic refugee living in UK, try to make a champion of himself through the suffering of his people. It’s so pathetic to have people running away from their countries and thereafter start looking down on where they have come from. I know the economy of UK is far much better than Zambia, but remember we are in the building process, we need to be patriotic. Moses in the bible refused to be called as one of the pharaohs because of patriotism. He had all privileges, but refused to fall for that for the freedom of his country( Israel). Promote peace Larry, do not stir more hatred between PF and UPND.

  16. Complete nonsense and not newsworthy. You can nearly smell the fear from Larry. The chap doesn’t even realise what time zone he’s in. FYI Zambia is only one hour ahead.

    This man is a trifle DELUDED and has an over inflated idea of his own importance. You made your bed now lie in it! Don’t expect any sympathy from the people you’ve been calling all sorts of names just because they don’t support UPND.

Mweetwa may God forgive you and embrace you into his kingdom and deliver you from the possible link to satanism and mason ism as only people who belong to the aforementioned sects can have the odesity to celebrate the suffering of other fellow humanity.
    For the Bible in Jeremiah 33:3 says call on my name i shall answer you . For real from the day fire gutted city market , we have not gone to sleep we have totally submitted to almighty God THROUGH the love of Jesus Christ with a serious petition to deliver Zambia from such calamities and answer by fire to expose the perpetrators the way we did with the ritual killers of zingalume. The same God who nightly exposed the Zingalume killers within 7 days of our petition prayers, has…

God has heard with anger the cries of all the 1900 traders and he is about to manifest his power to his glory he is about to crash down the devil and his agents . I decree and declare God has answered our petition and is about to show the world that he is lord of this second Israel mother Zambia for no weapon formed against this land shall prosper . Withdraw your earlier statement and repent God needs you as he is God of second chance i for one will pray for Gods mercy on you . God has arisen for Zambia he is king of glory he is about to deliver Zambia . Amen and amen.

  23. Larry, assumptions have limits, and you don’t tell them like they were empirical truth in social media, unless your aim is to mislead the masses (which in this case is called propaganda). But one thing I know is that professinal propagandists have quick and analytical minds to swing and confuse their unsuspecting victims; I doubt if you are one. You do only manage to reinforce the mindset of the people you share your idealogies with – those who hate the current Lungu and like Hichilema (not that such people have reasons for the hatred or liking).

  24. Bo Mwetwa,
    according to your explanation you received a call in the morning informing you about the fire , But you only called in later in the afternoon to find out how safe was your investment in city market. this is not a normal explanation.
    its like you are told that houses in your location only to find out 4 or 6 hrs later if your house is affected.
    therefore your explanation doesn’t carry water

  26. Ama Zambians mwalitemwa uku kunkuluda. Its for the accusers to prove that someone has done something wrong. Not the other way round. A very simple principle of justice which many of you have serious difficulties in grasping. Or is it selected amnesia, or convenient for your selfish motives?
    Anyone who maliciously accuses someone of something they can’t prove deserves to be sued mercilessly. If you have evidence, put it together and show that it holds. Witch hunting is not a part of due process.

If he came to Zambia, many Zambians he stole from will be very happy to have him so that they take him to the police to recover their money. UPND is full of conmen like Larry Mweetwa.

  32. I am an ardent reader of literature and follow quite a number of posts on both Social media and otherwise. Some of those i follow are Larry Mweetwa, Emmanuel Mwamba, Chilufya Tayali, and the list goes on, and to be honest i get dismayed at the level of intellect that each one of them exhibits. they are so different in their levels of analysis and their take on everyday occurrences. In my opinion, and i stand to be corrected, Larry behaves like a teenager who is just trying to identify his place in a society with a hodgepodge of different choices. I have watched Chilufya T. and Emmanuel live in some interview, i don’t think Larry can manage a live interview. By the way, that’s my opinion
