Former Copperbelt Province Minister and newly formed National Democratic Congress(NDC) secretary general Mwenya Musenge has said that his party will not be intimidated nor will it surrender. Reacting to the attack that left his vehicle smashed and its tires deflated, Musenge advised President Edgar Lungu to tame his cadres.

Mr Musenge said that no form of intimidation would deter his party from speaking for the majority Zambians who were fed up with the PF’s style of governance.
“We will not surrender, we will not be intimidated; ine teyine naimbile ulwimbo Koswe Mumpoto [ I’m not the one who sang the song Koswe Mumpoto] that they should vent their
anger on me. Ba Edgar Lungu should take control of the nation, he has been preaching politics of non-violence in this country but meanwhile itis his cadres and members of the Patriotic Front who have been perpetuating the vice. This is one of the reasons the Zambian people have lost trust and confidence in the PF, trust and confidence in Edgar Chagwa Lungu,” Musenge said.

“Ba Edgar Lungu ought to realize that he is not the first President and he shall not be the last President. We give him a lot of respect because he is the Republican President and my appeal to him is that he should take control of this country, take control of the nation, and take control of his cadres. As NDC, we are not going to be intimidated but our desire is to promote a peaceful nation, our desire is to see every Zambian enjoy their right of association, assembly and expression.”

The former Copperbelt Minister further accused the Police of being toothless and compromised. He said he would not report the matter to the Police because of the stance the law enforcers had taken on the opposition members.

“The Police have also become compromised, 5FM is a stone throw from Lusaka Central Police Station yet they only arrived here two hours later. When they were planning this attack, the Police should have quickly known that there was something happening here. The cadres were strategically stationed here and when we were attacked, they took their time to come; over two hours, from a station which is only a minute away,” said Musenge.

“It’s for that reason that today I have protested and I am not reporting this matter to the Police; it is a waste of time. There are people they can respond quickly to and people they cannot respond and protect; and I want to believe that I am one of the people the police has no regard for as Zambian.”

  1. The attack must be condemned in all respects. But don’t do politics of character assassination which fuel violence from your opponents, tell us your manifesto. Don’t just cry, some of you opposition are just as useless as the ruling party because of your foul mouths, especially your party leaders. At least, you Musenge, are sober, you are just a victim of your associates, bad company!

    • Ah! I remember this is how PF started before President Sata handed us to President Lungu. This NDC is really going somewhere.

    • This political Retrovir of repeat and rinse is boring people.

      Musenge is attacking Lungu and here we are again – cardres.

      Take cadres throw the book at the them and stop recognising cadres as these political force in Zambian politics.

      If cadres behave in a way I have read to believe they do – arrest them and throw them in jail.

      Real cadres shouldn’t vandalise or threaten anyone. Zambian cadres are no real political cadres.

      Sick and tired.

      I’m going back to sleep in the arms of my X factor man

    • Some people are political clowns for real. Honestly musenge lost chimwemwe seat on pf ticket how can he convince the nation to vote for him. Kambwili knows that once let go off the roan seat he can’t get it back . These two clowns will never cease to amaze me. By the way why does Kambwili walks with legs apart.

    • The buck at Cadre violences stops at Edgar Lungu. He is Commander in Chief. If he is failing to order his Police to stop cadre violence how can we expect him to solve more complex problems such as the ailing economy?…..any Bakosowe mumpoto!

  2. Aaaahhh…this is the cheap political mileage Musenge wanted. Can he pinpoint yesterday’s incident on PF?? The answer is NO!!! There is no evidence to prove that, he and his usless partner Kambwili could have stage managed this!!! Always playing the victim, this NDC is a product of bittetness, hate, tribalism. This stoneage politics is despicable, Kambwili is just trying to divert attention from the corruption and fraud cases that are pending.

    • In terms of probability it’s likely would haven been PF cadres.

      You have just made yourself look so stupid with your rant.

    • For once I agree with Mushoto. Zambian Citizen has exhibited moronic reasoning. Whether Kambwili is diverting attention or not, violence should never be condoned and if we had a capable Commander in Chief, his police force would not tolerate such acts. Can we for once be civil! Bakoswe mumpoto bafula!

    • @Obatala: What is evident that it was PF??? Sunday Chanda distanced the party from this incident by issuing an official statement. If Musenge or Kambwili or indeed the police can tell us categorically that this and this points to PF, then I will believe you; not speculation or “probability” as this Mushota retard has put it. When upnd cadres smashed court premises, it was straightforward because they presented themselves as upnd supporters even when some where arrested-THERE WAS NO SPECULATION, ACCUSATIONS ETC. I do not support violence, but as there are no witnesses to point that the perps were PF, there were no arrests, it’s Musenge’s word against anyone’s. Sunday has issued a statement, and so it shall also be taken as gospel truth!!!

    • Citizen

      You must be one of the only PF caders told off by mushota……..why we know it is pf is because the police don’t arrest pf violence and this is the same gang that attacked a UPND funeral procession…..again no arrests…..

    • First of all, I was not told off but attacked by that retard. There is a difference. Secondly, Mushota is hardly someone with the mental ability to articulate and comprehend political matters, that is why I do my best to avoid commenting on her posts-you can check that!! So her comments on my post are insignificant as they lack the acumen to sway my opinion of the current government.

    • Who cares. What’s that got to do with eating an ice cream ?

      See how irrelevant my anology is ?

      What Musenge is talking about and GRZ allegations have nothing to compare here.

      You need to grow up and think before your type or say anything.

      Another moron.

  7. Political power is very temporary. Mwenya Musenge used to be the aggressor on the copperbelt not a long time ago. Time has now caught up with him. The same will happen with Lungu and his ministers in the near future.

  9. PF a violent party of cadres working with a police force rated amongst the worst ten on the continent. That violence is a reflection of the quality of the leadership in the party. Violence begets violence! Look at what is happening in the DRC. Degenerative leadership and bad governance would easily lead us on that route!

    • At least PF hammers s.t.u.p.id politicians who want to spread lies about them not upnd who smash and burn courts, petrol bomb chiefs who don’t support upnd, beat people from other tribes….

  10. What is Mwenye musenge and Chishimba Kambwili complaining about? That the police service is not impartial? This two f00ls had all the powers when they were in government to change things. I remember when the PF was in opposition they used to cry foul about the public order act. when they are in power now the same order act has become so sweet that they don’t want to change it.
    UPND is complaining about the same public order act and am sure if they were to win elections today they would still maintain it.
    Ask Winter Kabinda, the man is quiet now because everyday he regrets that power slipped off his hands just by a little bit, this time he would have been president of the republic and he would have re-written the whole constitution of Zambia all by himself.

  11. This is how civil wars start….it had to take a private citizen to fire shoots to disperse the PF thugs while police watched………it is fair to say citizens who want freedom of expression and assembly should carry arms to protect them selves and their property and to disperse the violent PF thugs ready to silence everyone…..

  12. Iam really worried about the competency of the police under the current IG. Remember the PF cadres who camped at the High Court, just next to police HQ and the police could not move, numerous attacks on members of the opposition ( even at cemeteries), unresolved fires and deaths etc etc. How I wish there could be a “judicial” review of his competency to hold office. I admire RSA for getting rid of compromised or incompetent constitutional office bearers.

    • It has less to do with Kanganja but more to do with where the ZP is coming from and its structure. Since independence, right through to MMD and up to now, ZP has recruited the same, trained the same, worked in the same colonial structures and offices and has developed an attitude unique with ZP!!! UNZA don Alex Ngoma just the other day called far a complete overhaul of ZP and rightly so. ZP needs urgent reforms if it is to function in modern society. Otherwise, even the next party in power will be accused of the same problem as well.

  13. Mwenya lost a parliamentary election to an independent candidate on a PF ticket, now he has formed a PARTY and thinks he can change peoples mind set. We Zambians are not fools…..this chap should have just kept quite for his own good. A lion remains a lion even if it is soaked, it can never be called a dog, its still a lion. Just emulate your friend Miles Sampa and stop the rubb1sh, you will never and i repeat you will never change anything in our mind. Am just imagining what Mwenya could have been saying had he won the elections….loosing is a very bitter pill to swallow….ba Mwenya ikalenifye you lost chapwa!!!

  15. What happened is wrong, however I would like to remind mwenya musenge that these are the seeds he planted in PF when he was a member. Remember how you used to harass the opposition members, how you used to cow the police and border officials at Kasumbalesa when smuggling mealie meal into DRC? You only rip what you sowed. This goes even for people like Davis Mwila. Learn to live in peace.

  16. Mwenya Musenge shouldn’t complain so much because yesterday he was in that same team and in fact even smuggling mealie meal to a neighboring country for his selfish motive and gain. How can he even dare to complain today just because he lost it himself due to lack of grip!! He is NO longer a favourite in the Zambian politics. He should rest in peace

  17. what do you do to your enemy when you have more power? urinate on his bed or break his cars’s window?
    Are you more christian when you support evil? Come on the day of worship, which GOD allows you to curse your enemy and call for his death?
    Call yourself a best christian but measure yourself against the truth.

  18. Be good and do good. Never join the multitude to sin. leave a life of God fearing all the times.
    A gift of life is from GOD and it is GOD who gives it and takes it away. You may be in UK like Mushota or in Chibolya or Garden like Proud, your life is in the hand of GOD. Do as He says for He will judge you one day.
    Do good to others and never pride in demeaning others where you are bemba , lozi nyanja or tonga. You never chose to be born to a particular tribe. In fact you are told that you are this or that tribe by the people you deem to be your parents.

  20. I do not condone violence. The bottom line here is incompetence by ZP. failing to react in good time to an emergency of violence.Police should act professionally but it is not like that any more because the minister is a cadre and the IG is afraid of of losing his job. No matter what the outside world will say about the ineptness of ZP our IG will not bother as long as ZP is following what the PF is saying kwasila. Remember bwana IG that after this others will ask you to explain and defend your behavior of onesidedness. See Zimbabwe now, Mugabe has an amnesty, has it been extended to his stooges? No!!! MUKALUBULULA MWEKA , LUNGU TAKABEKO. Deal with violence the way it is supposed to be dealt with. LWENU BA IG INE NAMWEBAKO FYE !!!.

  21. God gives breath to everyone because we are all his by creation. however ,some creatures wants to cut short others’ life because of Mr Lungu .Who is greater between Lungu and GOD? Lungu was nowhere when GOD was creating this world. so was I . therefore why should some people adore Lungu more than GOD. Lungu will go but GOD is eternal….. which side are you on? GOd or Lungu….. Tell the world and tell it top GOD’s face if lUNGU IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ZAMBIA THAN GOD….
    PEACE IS DETERMINED BY GOD NOT LUNGU…..NOT EVEN HH, WINTER OR TAYALI

  22. ” What if I form a party and become its president so as to enjoy some form of immunity?” I asked myself. Which majority of people am I fighting for then? But if I were fighting for majority of Zambians, then I would not be fighting the people’s President. Otherwise I have become like one of the caterpillars and cankerworms trying to frustrate the people’s development which the people are yearning for. Then I said inside my heart, ”It’s better for me and my pot-bellied colleague to focus our attention on securing valid credentials our buildings, houses and plots which we have scattered all over Lanshya, Baluba, Chiitwe and Ndege, for they have been acquired through questionable means.

  23. IT IS EVIDENT THAT A PF MEMBER CAN INSULT ANYONE AND TALK ARROGANTLY BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY HAVE APPARENT POWER FROM THE PRESIDENT… NO PF CAN BE PUNISHED….
    NO NON PF MEMBER CAN INSULT THE PRESIDENT OTHERWISE THE WHOLE ZAMBIAN SECURITY CAN POUNCE ON THAT PERSON. PF SHALL CALL FOR YOUR BLOOD. THE PRESIDENT AND HER OLD VICE PRESIDENT SHALL JOIN THE BAND WAGON CALLING FOR YOUR BLOOD…. WHAT A COUNTRY…..
    THEY EVEN WHAT TO REGULATE WORSHIP AS IF THEIR GOD IS THE BEST GOD IN THE WORLD. EVEN TRUE ISRAELITES WHO HAVE EVIDENCE OF JESUS PLACES ARE SHOCKED BY PF ZEALOTS….. CAN GOD OF THE PF BE THE TRUE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC, JACOB AND DAVID?
