Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has strongly condemned the treatment of Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili by the state.

Mr. Kambwili was picked from hospital, taken to Woodlands Police station then court and now under police custody as the matter could not take off.

Mr Hichilema accused the state of abusing Mr Kambwili’s basic human rights by refusing to grant him a police bond since he was charged with 39 counts.

Speaking to Journalists outside the Magistrate Court on Tuesday afternoon after he went to offer solidarity to Mr Kambwili who wanted to take plea in order to secure bail, Mr Hichilema said Mr Kambwili is being treated in a very dehumanising fashion.

Mr Hichilema who was accompanied by UPND Vice-president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba demanded that police should give Mr Kambwili a bond.

“We keep demanding that he be given police bond or bail as the matters he is charged with are all bailable. These are basic human rights enshrined in our constitution that even hardcore criminals are accorded. We appeal to the conscious of those who preach morals and values in our Christian nation to practice what they preach,” Mr Hichilema said.

He charged that these are the activities making the UPND call on the country to unite and demand for a better Zambia.

Mr Kambwili is detained at UTH after he failed to secure a police bond and his medical team insisted that he be taken back to hospital as his conditions is not stable enough.

At Woodlands Police Station, heavily armed riot police officers fired multiple shots to scare Mr Kambwili’s supporters who accompanied him to the police station after he was discharged from CfB Medical Centre.

He was later taken to UTH for medical attention after police refused to grant him bond.

Mr Kambwili is on Wednesday expected back in court to take plea and secure his bail.

Meanwhile, officials from the Human Rights Commission visited Mr Kambwili at CfB Medical Centre before he was discharged.

The HRC officials who visited Dr. Kambwili at CFB hospital were led by Commissioner Muchekeni Zulu who is a former Zambia Police Commissioner for Lusaka Province.

The visit by the HRC team comes a day after the institution expressed concern at the welfare of Dr. Kambwili.

On Monday, the Commission urged the Anti-Corruption Commission to consider granting Mr Kambwili bond, as a matter of human rights.

The HRC added that the offences which the NDC consultant has been charged with are bondable.

  1. Even from you can see that the guy is sick.
    Why PF using Kambwili as example of Jesus before Good Friday? Do all what you want with him, but please don’t nail him to the tree on Friday afternoon.

    • To start with HH needs to condemn Kambwil’s gargantuan BELLY. Additionally, revoke his wife’s nursing license. What does she feed this man, cement? It’s unethical for a medical personal to have such gross disregard for health in their household. Kambwili lacks the simple discipline for taking care of his own body, how can he govern anything else. I rest my case.

    • Why do men put on so much fat and pot bellys

      That is grossly unhealthy and could be contributing to the state of CK’s health.

      I wish him well.

      Thanks

    • @nubian
      You are such a voodo witch, get married and get laid, you will become normal,,, i tell bowman for if you dont mind

    • Lungu, please fight political battles with politics, NOT abuse of police & ACC. In as much as Kambwili’s wealth is questionable, so is Kaizer Zulu’s wealth. A video of Kaizer (a civil servant) flashing a Rolex in a night-club went viral & is enough evidence to start an investigation.

      Why is ACC selective on who they arrest/charge?

    • Why hh sympathizing with ck when it was him and upnd zwd who revealed the corruption of ck. Its like a kid reporting her mum to his dad that there was a man who entered your bedroom and started beating my mum. When the dad sends her mum packing the kid starts crying foul. These are truly under5s.

    • Please add indecent exposure to Kambwili’s arrest warrant. He corrupted children’s morals by exposing his BELLY on social media. Now children will think men can get pregnant too! SMH

  2. Kambwili is a joke! Look what games he is now playing… Childish ones. And HH please do not fall in CK’s trap. He embezzled and all what the poor Zambian like me is to have our money back so we can hve medicines in hospitals and clinics.

    • @dont care that’s the point. In Zambia we have important people called politicians and not powerful democratic. Institutions. The guys know you can steal as long as you are in government or when out by just keeping quite. HRC is talking about human rights because its politician involved. How many ordinary citizens take yrs just to get bail or bond? So many. Let’s have powerful institutions. If the its flawed it should affect everyone.

    • Illness does not choose bwana. Wait until it befalls you. There are so many fat people around, even in your own families so this is not the issue. The issue is we are dealing with a fellow human being. Unless you are crazy you need to give someone chance to recover. The man is visibly sick and the cases are bailable!

  3. The pot belly is too much. Ndalama zabanthu izi. He amassed too much wealth from stealing poor people’s money through government corruption and its now for payback.
    Disaster!!

    • Everyone who has a pot belly ni ndalama za banthu? You will cry in your death bed one day when you look back at your comments when the final day recons. Lets not laugh at patients. Totally unzambian.

  4. there is what we call in sports good sportsmanship, for eg in boxing, when yo opponent falls down u have to wait until he gets on his feet and then u resume the fight.
    the man may have a case to answer but give him a chance to stand up which I know he will.
    we both much know that this game is very far from over

  5. A patient is a patient no matter the political or tribe or race grounds. Kambwili’s illness is deadly, yet my fellow Zambian’s think it alright to treat the patient in that a manner. I understand we are a developing nation, but our minds and morals shouldn’t be. Zambian’s shouldn’t hate Zambian’s because of politics. One Zambia One Nation.

    • Are you sure he’s sick? When I had a bout of HBP, the doctor restricted me to only 3 visitors ie my wife, and my children. He instructed me to be off the phone. For 7 days I was almost incommunicado. But comrade Kambwili has been all over the show. Anyway I leave to you to decide.

  6. As usual, kainde always looking to score cheap political mileage. It’s not Kambwili he should be looking out for, he faces extinction from his f.0.0.lish antics in parliament with the backlash of that impeachment motion, and that’s what he should focus on. Is it just me or doesn’t GBM look a little lean??? Kaya….

    • Just like the twit himself, even his followers are equally retarded. Kambwili refused to work with hh, so how will these theatrics enhance his political standing??? Kambwili seems to be attracting a lot of attention with his s.t.u.p1.dity and kainde is falling for it and supporting it, how useless can you be????!!!!

    • So for you it is okay for the PF to try and score by trying to evacuate CK to RSA even when Doctors did not recommend an evac and against his will than for HH to just give some support to this guy. May I remind chaps on this forum that Kambwili is not guilty of any crime until the courts have proved otherwise. And where is that s.illy minister of religion that epitomizes our pretentious selective Christian credentials as a nation? She couldn’t even visit Kambwili at the hospital and pray for him.

  7. Try to ask nicely, maybe the reason they are not listening to your demands is because you are DEMANDING. you have demanded for a lot of things but non has been granted. Try asking nicely.

  8. What else can you say Mr HH. You’ll seize every opportunity to enhance your political fortunes. Deep inside you very well know that Kambwili is just play acting and very soon the director will call “Cut”. By the way bail can only be granted by the court and each time he’s about to appear in court Kambwili has come up with something.

    • And your PF controllers are playing right in their hands. Are you not confident of what you have on him? His definitely not faking his blood sugar and high BP! If they had done the simple right thing of giving him a police bond when they arrested him,all this would have been avoided!

    • Ba FDD on the contrary it’s Kambwili’s followers who are causing confusion. They crowding the space. Tell them to give chance to the police to escort Kambwili peacefully.

  9. This is embarrassing and every time it goes on,its more eggs on the faces of controllers of the Police! CK is a BUFFON as someone refers to him and if you have concrete evidence against him,let due process be followed and you will meet him in court. Give him bond already! This Chagwa camp keeps passing the opportunity to do the right thing.Their months are very disconnected with their brains it seems. Just the other day someone was talking about the morals of the country and yet he is instigating immorality in fixing his so called opponents!

  10. Could the relevant authorities for once have a humane heart and let Kambwili recover fully and then allow a medical doctor to certify him fit to stand trial. What goes around comes around.

    • They say lungu is a humble man but evidence to the contrary paints him a vicious, vindictive, heartless, demonic, inhuman. Just think, lungu offered to evacuate Kambwili but at the slightest excuse he wants him dead, or in jail, or both. How many normal humans think this way?

  11. Total idiocity in the PF camp……just give him bond and meet him in court…..lungu too knows what is comming his way when he leaves office and the sad thing is no one will simpthyse with him just like no one is sympathetic to Mugabe’s cries of a coup….

  12. Zambian prisons are a death sentence, if our prisons were clean and orderly as they are in Europe I tell you CK wouldn’t be so scared of going in. All Zambian regimes have failed to improve prison conditions and ironically all have either suffered in the same cells or been under the threat of imprisonment after leaving office.
    Let the State allow an unbiased independent team of Doctors to assess the health of Kambwili because the worst that can happen is he gets seriously ill and dies. Kambwili by all accounts is most likely pretending to be seriously ill- why has his condition suddenly worsened after this arrest? I believe Wynter Kabimba was right when he said CK is a coward.

  13. WHAT IS THIS PF AND ITS LEADERSHIP REFERENT FROM THE SANHEDRIN DURING JESUS’ CRUCIFIXION TIME. ROMANS MISTREAT JESUS- PASSION WEEK- HH WAS MISTREATED DURING THIS WEEK 2017, CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI ALSO PASSION WEEK – , JESUS WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH -GOOD FRIDAY- HH WAS SENTENCED – GOOD FRIDAY, TODAY CHISHIMBA WANT TO BE SENTENCED THIS FRIDAY.

    IS PF AND ITS LEADERSHIP CHRISTIAN OR ANT-CHRIST?

  14. PF WILL HAVE ANOTHER DEATH ON THEIR HEADS. CK IS A SICK MAN WALKING AND IF THEY THINK THEY CAN TREAT HIM LIKE HH THEY WILL BE A SHAMED VERY SOON. THE MAN WILL COLLAPSE AND WILL NOT BE REVIVED. YES HIS MOUTH REMAINS TALKING BUT HIS MEDICAL CONDITIONS (DIABETES AND HYPERTENSION) ARE NOT EASY TO CONTROL IN SUCH SITUATIONS. ANYWAY LET THEM DO WHAT THEY KNOW BETTER

  15. THIS IS NO HEARSAY,

    LET ME WARN GBM, MWENYA MUSENGE AND CK THAT LIFESTYLE AILMENTS (BP or hypertension, diabetes, obesity or overweight etc) ARE AS DEADLY AS TUBERCULOSIS, AND ACCOUNT FOR 60% OF DEATHS IN MALES AGED 55+ YEARS.

  16. i am sick and tired of all the paparazzi surrounding CK and this nonsense of feeling sorry for him blah…blah..blah……!!!! the fact still remains the same…. he has been convicted by the courts and lets them decide whether he is guilty or innocent and move on with the final verdict. His illness has been exaggerated in the pretext of making the public sympathetic towards him and divert our attention that he has abused taxpayers money…..that is if the courts find him guilty….so lets stop all this nonsense of posting pics of him sitting in the cells, ICU and UTH…….GET REAL THERE ARE MORE INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING A HELL OF A TIME IN THE CELLS AND NO MEDIA COVERAGE FOR THEM WHEN THEY HAVE NOT WEVEN ABUSED TAXPAYERS MONEYS……

  17. Ba lungu, u’ll never be forgiven by Zambians. Kambwili is going to die if u continue treating him like this.Do u know suger and Blood pressure ?Why are u treating the man who made u win the elections.Be careful.We want ACC to investigate the procurement of fire trucks but ACC is sleeping.Zambians are now more enlightened and we know Lungu is destroying the country.How i pray that the impeachment process can go ahead and impeach the president.We are PF in luapula, northern n muchinga in support of impeaching Lungu.We don’t want him to be a president of this country anymore.He has destroyed PF.please PF mps from luapula,northern n muchinga,kabwe central please liberate us .ba Lubinda please help to remove this man is not good for the country.let the vise president to take over the…

  18. Well,since the president started the idea of standing in 2021 i realized that the man is so selfish.He looks humble but he is now exposed by most PF members.He never wanted pipo like Kambwil coz they started being more popular than him.Lungu if he wants to save PF let him no stand in 2021.He should not be so selfish like this.why are u destroying the party ba Sata loved so much.U’re taxing us like criminals.U don’t care about Zambians as long as the deal will benefit you.We are tired.I was busy campaigning for you but i have realized that u’re a evil and selfish president.If those PF Mps are not thinking,it’s high time they impeached u because u’re just using them.I hope mama inonge can take over the country.Please let us save our party PF by impeaching Lungu.Zambabwe did it,south…

  19. HH sounds well as human being. HH should stand his last chance on PF ticket. He will win a landslide.

  20. The supreme leader of the UPND loves publicity….just a few moons ago the UPND god was shouting at ECL for covering C K against ACC and not firing him…today one of his dark angels is telling the colonial BBC that CK’s charges are trumped up and the supreme leader offers CK a hand !!!! Wow!
    And they wonder why they hold the record of BEST UNDER ACHIVERS in Zambia.

    • it is his modus operandi. Remember when RB was facing corruption charges, HH was on his side but that all changed when RB was acquitted , it was all down to corruption and wako ni wako on Lungu’s part simply because RB did not support him in the 2015 elections, this despite the fact that UPND mps had voted overwhelmingly against the lifting of RB’s immunity in parliament.

  21. Bottom line is that Kambwili is a suspected thief and no amount of hide and seek will make him survive this.

    Is tis why you want the impeachment thing to pass so that you can hide money in paradise or Panama Canal? we wont allow it.

  22. God loves every one…… As an Adventist, I will promote love for both friends and enemies….. I will never support wickedness……………………. Beng kind to both my enemies and friend……………..
    In this world , the powerful think power is absolute…… real power belong to GOD…. GOD will exalt you today and lower tomorrow……..

  23. I’ve noticed that of all the PF renegades, it’s only Kabimba who has not joined with HH. Reason ? Kabimba has broken the rule that only one person HH should stand for president from all the tribes that support the Upnd.

  24. No insults here but CK is NOT SICK. He is afraid of the court of law. Umwaume should have taken a plea and asked for bail with GBM, HH amd Nevers Mumba as surities. Chapwa. Not changing hospitals like this. For us poor people we are used now to such illnesses as GRZ has no medicines but abanensu they go to south africa. For your own info, I have relatives that have been on the waiting list for a long time; surgery, specialist treatment and so on.

  25. GBM Skin will be worse in 2021.He looks miserable and disappointed.He is used to say Ka Edgar.Now Ka Edgar is ruling him.

  26. Several years ago a song went, “I can’t marry a man who has a big tummy like he has children in his belly!” Remember the song? Kambwili and GBM must go to the gym.

  27. HaJay’s father, a lazy bum, begat a tribalist son who is the biggest online tribalist and chief strategist of UPND. Other little tribalists follow suit. But they are all losers!

  28. Lungu has dictatorial tendencies. Fortunately, presidential terms are limited, so once his term is up, he too will be scrutinized & inconvenienced by the next president. He better hide the stolen money very carefully. It’s called karma.

  29. PEOPLE NOW MUST STOP AND THINK WELL THAT LUNGU IS NOT A CHRISTIAN BUT ANT-CHRIST. WHY IS IT THAT LAST YEAR HE INCARCERATED HH DURING EASTER TIME, A TIME FOR RECONCILIATION AND REPENTANCE AS PEOPLE LOOK TO THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST BUT LUNGU IS THE TIME TO PERSECUTE HIS OPPONENTS TODAY IS KAMBWILI,AND NEVERS MUMBA – LIKE ROMAN SOLDIERS THE WHOLE SANHEDRIN DURING THAT TIME.
