Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services and Chief Government Spokesperson kampamba Mulenga
Rainbow Party (RP) Member of Central Committee (MCC) in charge of elections Victor Kalesha has said the attack on Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) by the Minister of Information Kampamba Mulenga is a clear indication that the Patriotic Front (PF) led Government is scared even of its own shadow.

Government condemned Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) over their statement regarding the Information of Article 31 of the laws of Zambia.

Kalesha said in a statement today that there was nothing wrong with the statement issued by LAZ for it to attract the attacks from the Minister.

The Rainbow Party Member of Central Committee stated that LAZ where only performing their duties by interpreting the law in regard to the invocation of article 31 by the Republican President.

Kalesha has since urged chief Government spokesperson Kampamba Mulenga to always differentiate political statements and Government statements.

  1. Its madness of the highest degree for PF bandits of visionless Edgar to tell LAZ that it should form its own political party.
    PF is illegally in power, blind Lungu knows this too well.

    • Have you ever heard of the word “sarcasm” If you have, maybe you don’t understand it’s meaning. ECL was being sacarstic. I can understand where you coming from though….. you lack depth of thought.

    • The problem with LAZarous is that they have never seen anything right with the PF Govt. This is what leaves one to wonder. They would rather be friends of the court against Govt. Search history and you will see that there seems to be a ‘silent attack’ on Govt. When did they ever said anything positive about Govt.? There’s a Cartel trust me.

    • Victor Kalesha should have gone further to condemn President ECL for attacking LAZ, has he intentionally left him out and just focused on Kampamba Mulenga?
      Then the whole condemnation does not have any weight and value.

    • What makes me wonder about Linda’s approach is her affinity to hold press conferences even when she is not sure of what she is saying.

      Why call for press conference and pronounce doubts instead of professionally approaching relevant institutions to seek clarification on matters.

      How can Linda tell the nation that she is not sure if the quorum was formed by parliament during the vote for Article 31?

      Why not seek clarification and verification from parliament, instead of purposefully sowing a seed of doubt in the the public?

      If you are not your about something, why hold a press conference and declare that you are not sure?

      I don’t see that approach to be of a legal mind, but that of speculative politics of fighting over shaping of public option.

  2. Surely what do you expect when lungu, an educated man, takes THUGS as an advisors? Thugs like Kaizer Zulu, Mumbi Phiri, Ex-Katondo Dealer Kapyongo.

    The Malawian Dictator is the dullest lawyer Zambia has ever seen. He hates LAZ bcoz they cancelled his practicing license after he swindled his Widow client out of her late husband’s benefits & drunk the whole money.

    That’s how he went to open a tavern in Chawama & shortly failed to run it bcoz he got high on his own supply.

    Next he tried his luck with politics & the country witnessed the most violent (Chawama) Bye-Elections.

    Today we are a laughing stock to the whole world after the abduction of HH over a flimsy traffic offence.

    The Evil Malawian Dictator’s abuse of power makes Joseph Kabila look like an Angel.

    • I dont think obstructing a Presidential motorcade is a flimsy trafiic offence? Who knows what was the intention. Try to do that in any civilized country and you will be short dead and no one to blame but yourself.

    • @Abena, I think your thinking is already biased. I know exactly where you belong. What evidence have you got that HH committed a traffic offence?

    • In civilized nations, they don’t move with such motorcades unless in special occasions but definitely not one like Kuomboka. Get your facts.

    • @ Abena: It’s all in your head. The law is clear, it’s a traffic offence. Only in the heads of evil lungu worshipers is it treason.
      Zambia Highway code chapter 7.1:
      DUTY OF DRIVER TO STOP FOR THE STATE MOTORCADE
      222. On the approach and during the passing of the State motorcade the driver of every vehicle on the road shall stop and give way to the Presidential and other VIP motorcade. No vehicle shall overtake the motorcade.

      The magnitude of the offence is all in your head. For example you buy a new Range Rover & the next day your step-son takes a pan-brick & breaks the windscreen. In you analysis, you would take a gun & shoot him.

      Why do you wish HH to be hanged to death for a traffic offense? You evil embi.cile.

    • Meanwhile the Under 5 kid is breathing feacal air in Kabwe and it’s working on his brain. Unfortunately the U5 Kaponya (HH) thinks being behind bars makes him a hero.

      Mutinta promised us a volcano but no one loves that filthy thug that much to put the country on fire. To risk their lives for the dubious Privatization thief would be irresponsible. Mutinta was misguided in crying for Armageddon. “They want to kill my husband” Please! The PRlCK is more valuable to us alive. Only an executioner can legally terminate his miserable wimp life. Or AIDS from his cell mates

      If U5 can’t mature after his stint at Mukobeko then he should retire from active politics. (HH) will need years of rehab after his prison stint. His next destination is Chinama which is no better.

  4. The biggest problem in Zambia is that there is no difference between the party and its government otherwise known in the world as PIG!
    Our politician can not tell when to speak at party level and when it Government….

  10. Ba Rainbow Party I strongly feel have no moral standing from which to comment on anything about Patriotic Front unless under the in-ward motivation of jealous & envy. Coz the Ruling Party was very confrontational under Mr W. Kawimba as SG then

  11. Zambia is bigger than PF and UPND.Parties will come and go but Zambia will remain forever.Posterity will judge us harshly if we let PF and UPND mess up with the peace we are experiencing.Leaders will come and go but Zambia will not be erased from the map.KK,Chiluba,Mwanawasa,RB and Sata were there as presidents.They left and Zambia has remained the same great nation.Zambia will never be personal-to-holder like the way vehicles are owned.It is not a preserve of the few to be leaders.Zambia will remain Zambia even after the current crop of leadership is gone.Love should be nurtured in leadership for Zambia’s sake.Without love and peace,Zambia will not be a better place for all of us.

  12. UPNDonkeys, just the other day I explained to you in simple terms that the LAZ position was positively flawed. I defined all the terms that Linda referred to for you. You understood on Monday. Now you have already forgotten? With such a short memory retention capacity it confirms that you are really donkeys.
    Even underfive knows that Linda’s English language comprehension in this matter is flawed. And Linda knows that she would be torn to pieces in a court of law. Tell me what case she has won before. I bet she is no better than our very own donkey Musipe.

  13. There is no opposition party that speaks sense in Zambia! All of them have no vision and workable plans to articulate to win voters! They are pathetic and a disappointing lot! That is why they talk only about legalizing weed, Armageddon, people to rise up against the government, etc. None of them can even condemn bringing down ZESCO poles, burning of infrastructure and calling for stiff punishment for vandals and Namwala hooligans! What a shame! The government must continue with their progressive agenda and ignore these failures!

  14. LAZ is an opposition party and a surrogate mouthpiece for UPND! It is not LAZ like we knew the organization 20 years ago! “Kasonde” is a Tonga and like all (or maybe majority) of Tongas, she feels that “Zambia cannot run properly without a Tonga President!” That is what majority of Zambians oppose! If an all inclusive Tonga (maybe one who grew up on the Copperbelt) and understands that Zambia is one and does not behave like these guys (e.g. MPs) and those in offices we see behave, he may have a shot and we Zambians can vote for such! But the way HH and all you present yourselves (even here on the blog) scares a lot of peace and sane Zambians!

  15. LAZ and UPND go to bed together and this is a well known fact. ECL consulted Parliament and he was given the mandate. The invoking of Article 31 has just brought sanity in the country by empowering the law enforcement agencies. LAZ acted very wickedly to criticise the invocation despite them knowing that the situation in the country was degenerating into anarchy when LAZ was quietly smiling. Linda Kasonde is a disgrace to herself and the whole law profession. You have been rightly told by ECL – JUST FORMER A POLITICAL PARTY.

    • I think a professional body like LAZ needs to bring substance to the public, not speculation and adding and creating more confusion which the public is already well able to do. A quite disappointing!

      The public needs legal guidance from LAZ than to hear that they are also confused.

  18. Rainbow wants the same sympathy given to UPND by LAZ to be extended to them. Please do not play hide and seek with the truth. The LAZ know which side of their bread is buttered. So the PF are saying come out clearer by forming a POLITICAL party.

  19. I cannot be faulted if I opine that the statement from LAZ on the quorum is dangerous and misdirected and can be viewed as political because they have not submitted their argument based on legal authority and what our Constitution holds; neither have they noted any lacuna in the law with regard to what happens in approving an Invocation of Article 31 in the absence of suspended Members of Parliament…LAZ made unsupported claims and the blind have fallen for it.
