FILE: The PF MPs based on the Copperbelt during a news conference at Protea Hotel in Ndola

Patriotic Front Members of Parliament on the Copperbelt have called for the arrest of Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili for defamation of the President.

Speaking on behalf of the other MPs at a press briefing held in Kitwe yesterday, Mufulira Central Member of Parliament Evans Chibanda said Mr. Kambwili should not continue insulting President Edgar Lungu and making statements that amounted to defamation of the President.

Dr. Chibanda has urged law enforcement agencies to protect the office of the president by professionally executing their duties based on their evaluations of media statements made by politicians.

He stated that it was high time they put an end to Mr. Kambwili’s unwarranted attacks on the head of state.

Dr. Chibanda has challenged the Roan Member of Parliament to bring up imperial evidence on the corruption allegations that he is levelling against President Lungu.

He stated that Mr. Kambwili was trying to destroy the image of the President instead of explaining to the people how he was going to change the lives of Zambians with his political party.

    • Opposition in Zambia means insulting the head of state. Hh was in courts for insulting the president and evidence is there. It’s only Sinkamba who is playing his cards right among the opposition.

    • This is a pure example of politically motivated arrest !!!!!! This should be happening, issuing directives to Police?? This is wrong.

    • When will zambians learn that winning a case of defamation of character in the courts of law is not as easy as ABC or 123.

    • Yes ba PF, Copperbelt chapter, arrest CK for opposing the wrong doing in the party and government. In fact that is what you should charge him with. On the charge sheet you should also say CK has been arrested for not being a boot licker. Fast track his case in court, Dunderheads drinking tea at Protea Hotel. You are embarrassing your President. Mwefipuba mwe! MCS would have called you useless, I miss the man.

    • You are a bunch of *****s.You think that by shouting loudest Lungu will reward you with ministerial posts?
      Did you hear of Mwanawasa taking Sata to court for defamation for calling him a cabbage?
      His Excellency Sir Seretse Khama Ian Khama will be leaving office in 2 months. During his tenure, he was insulted but never answered back.He silenced his critics by diligently serving the nation of Botswana.
      You bunch waste time drinking zikolo in a hotel just to show your foolishness. Grow up!

    • When people are arrested for defaming the president then you know you are not in a democracy. Rule of the people means everyone is equal. If for example Pilato can be defamed without any criminal charges on the ‘insulter’ the same should be of the president.Noone should be more protected by the laws than other citizens of the nation.

  2. Usesless. A leader should be prepared to be insulted if not ready quit. Those MPs just met to discuss how to steal Mukula. What can come from Lusambo and his cohorts?

    • Try insulting leaders of your own family and tell me if you think your parents will smile. Insulting is not morally right. If you think otherwise, I think you were not properly raised to learn to be noble even in the midst of extreme pressure. There is need for respect in politics too.

    • Poor example. Parents didnt sit down with their children to elect who will be the head of the house and who would be the ‘subjects’. The president lifted his arm to enter that office. He wasnt granted the office by nature or by God. Kids dont choose their parents

  4. @ Mushota: Now I agree with you Mushota these people have nothing to do. If every one starts chasing Kambwili who is going to see that development is taking place? The Police are there to see that every Zambian follows law and order. Police will deal with him accordingly imwe just continue developing your constituencies and voters will appreciate your efforts:

  6. Leave kambwili alone. Just concentrate on your shoddy works in your constituencies. Come 2021, we shall teach you a lesson and it will be you to go to prison for the rampant corruption in your government

  7. We need to b schooled on wat amounts to insulting the presido. Th fora’s spokesperson has jst cited corruption allegation which according to him nid to b substantiated. Is dt th only insult? If substantiated, does it change frm insult to respect?

  8. MPs having a cup of tea in Protea Hotel just to denounce Kambwili. Surely do these chaps have anything better to do than squandering government resources?

  9. GOOD,VERY GOOD Copperbelt MPS your ECL will now be totally exposed by the court process.This is what Zambians have been asking for.The only loser will be ECL. Only him can defend himself against the numerous allegations of corruption mainly by people who until quite recently were very close to him.This will boomerang and aba ma MPS will be in s.it

  10. Indeed its now too much from Kambwili and Kainde.being an opposition leader does not mean you have to be insulting the sitting president on daily basis.nobody shall vote for Kambwili or HH because of them insulting Edgar Lungu.all one hears from these clowns everyday is Lungu this,Lungu that,etc.Hey,what is your manifesto bo Kambwili and Kainde?
    I really miss Michael Sata in opposition because his politics were issue based and gave clear hope to Zambians.Sata explained very well in simple terms how he would do things better than MMD leadership if voted into office.Many Zambians saw much sense in what Sata was saying and hence voting for him in 2011!!!NOW WHAT SENSE CAN ONE HEARS FROM KAINDE OR KAMBWILI?NOTHING!!!
    Hence,we must continue voting for PF even in 2021 and 2026 because the…

  11. Mps, Mpigs! Do you care for the emperor? Do want Mweemba to undress him using the court? You think the emperor is quite for nothing? Ask Nawakwi what happened when her and Fred were dragged to court by FTJ. I dare you to arrest him.

    • A president worthy his position can’t be answering back to a ngwangazi. By the Kambwili is not even your hero, he’s just a door mat you want to use to step into state house. Deep inside you know that Kambwili is just a hooligan. If Lungu has stolen, he will be arrested when he leaves office and the court will prove him either guilty or not. It happened to KK(no evidence), it happened to FTJ (case under appeal). Basically Kambwili’ out bursts are out of long standing bitterness which he’s now coming out carelessly.

    • Lungu is the only leader in the world who does not seem to mind being called a corrupt theif……and you wonder why there is so much corruption…

      The man has zero integrity..

  13. If someone accuses you of corruption, is that insulting? Why not take the person to court If you know that you are not corrupt? Just like in South Africa, there is STATE CAPTURE in Zambia. Kambwili is speaking for many Zambians who think corruption is excessive under PF!

    • Unless you didn’t listen to his utterances, you can say what you’re saying. And for which people is Kambwili talking for? Maybe you as his follower. I know you people think talking rubbish about other people is talking for the masses.

  17. Comrades, no need to flog a dead horse. The case against Kambwili is very serious and without doubt he will get ka ten years with five suspended. Automatically after conviction, he will be stripped of his parliamentary status. So no need to get worry.

  19. A blogger named ndanje khakis already knows the out come so when pipo talk of corruption, you khakis,have actually confirmed pipos concerns about the objectivity of the judiciary under the pf regime,this actually confirms lubindas statement about the judiciary, where he actually says that it can be influenced by the government but not by public or individuals
    What a strange democracy we have in zambia, a Christian nation. Sorry nearly chokred on my fillet steak laughing.
    Khakis how is the steak in zambia, the land of perfection .open your eyes and see reality . But what do u see when u are a bootlicker, can you tell us please,

    • Thanks, but I can tell you it’s not rocket science that Kambwili will go in. Those papers he used to sign are real. I am not a bootlicker but a realist. Maybe you’re HH’s bootlicker, if I may ask.

  20. Have these MPs nothing to do? CK has been ranting for months, PF through the President Lungu is still working. Are these MPs joking? Do your work stop boot leaking for God’s sake. I rest my case.
