HH and GBM at a correctional facility to visit Nevers Mumba

The opposition United Party for National Development Leader Hakainde Hichilema has been denied to visit incarcerated MMD Leader Faction Nevers Mumba At Mwembeshi Prison.

Mr. Hichilema has expressed that the state has refused him and his entourage to visit dr. Mumba who is being held at Mwembeshi prison in central province.

He explains that his Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and several other senior officials, arrived at Mwembeshi prison around 12:00 hours and were made to stand in the rains for close to two hours before being told that they cannot see Dr. Mumba.

This week, MMD faction leader Dr Nevers Mumba was convicted and sentenced to three months simple imprisonment in a matter where he was facing one count of giving false information to police officer.

Dr. Mumba was however been acquitted in a matter where he was charged with criminal trespass.

Lusaka Resident Magistrate David Simusamba convicted and sentenced Dr Mumba to three months with an option to appeal within 14 days.

“I have heard with deep concern from the defence team of Mr Mumba. It’s my view that the convict being the former Republican Vice President and the public figure should have avoided that. I therefore send the convict to prison for three months from today and the appeal can be made within 14 days,” Magistrate Simusamba ruled.

Particulars in count one were that Dr. Mumba on November 8, last year, did give false information to a police officer Gladson Mwanza that he had an appointment with a Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) editor.

    • This is a very sad story and a great pity that all the commentators above have trivialized it. The former vice president has been imprisoned for fining his way to ZNBC, a public institution funded by tax payers money! A thug in Kaizar Zulu pulled a gun and at Enock Kavindele and was not arrested and still working at state house. How many senior PF officials have killed people by dangerous driving and still walking the streets. How many PF riff ruff walk on ZNBC soil everyday?

    • Are you normal? PF supporters seem to have brain degradation on a daily basis, like you make a daily brain tithe to a god of dullness somewhere. Nevers Mumba is a political partner of HH and the UPND. You chaps baffle me.

    • Nevermind them…Hakainde and GBM are utter busy fooools, they like visiting hospital beds, court houses, Police cells and Prisons.. forever in the trap of busy folly. Being too busy is like an incurable disease.

    • You have the nerve to call other bloggers rats just because you don’t like their comments? On behalf of everyone else posting here, I feel the need to tell you that there is maturity in accepting each other’s opinnions without being disrespectful. After all, Zambia is not just PF and UPND, it is EVERY ONE of us.

  4. Let’s us be serious for once as Zambians, let’s stop being petty. There seems to be no good reason to deny Dr Mumba access to visits by friends and relatives. It’s this kind of actions which makes fair minded people to be sympathetic to the opposition. It makes people think all the prosecution was politically motivated. How does all this help the party in power in terms of public perception?

    • It helps the party in power to prove to people that s.t.u.p.1dity doesn’t pay. If you want to practice democracy, it must be done with civility. Nevers, as former VP, knows the etiquette of leadership and how to get grievances addressed. He chose to put that aside and follow a failed perpetual loser who had no evidence to prove anything. Nevers’s case should appear on Nat Geo’s “Science of S.t.u.p.1d”!!!!!

  5. The biggest let down by the opposition in Zambia is to think like cadres or thugs. I am sure if what Nevers did or had been doing if it was between 1980 and 1990, he couldn’t have done them! THis is because he was under authority of God which, he eventually traded. HH must be fortunate too. He could have a criminal record by now. THese opposition leaders do not distinguish between being thugs and literate leaders. They all live in the land of Hallucinogens, like their online cadres, chief among them the child of a lazy bum father of HaJay.

  6. IS THERE NO VISITING TIME AT PRISONS? OR YOU CAN SNEAK YOUR WAY INTO THE PRISON ANY TIME YOU WANT AS IF YOU ARE ENTERING YOUR OWN CATTLE KRAAL.

  7. It is important for LT to also investigate and publish the reasons that the correctional services advanced for denying them ENTRY. Did they meet all the requirements for visitors? Failure to do so just makes people to comment on incomplete information leading to wrong conclusions.

  8. HH was imprisoned at Mukobeko he said the conditions were hellish .So when do these big people care to visit the regular Mutinta ,Chirwa or Kapijimpanga who are holed up in prison?

  9. H H was the only one who was not around to enter because he did not posses any identification card (NRC, Driver’s licence). The rest entered and visited Dr Mumba. It is very shameful for H H to complain that they were denied to enter the prisons when others were allowed because they produced identification cards. That is why he is not liked because he does not tell the truth, imagine just on a simple issue of not carrying his authentication cards he started blaming the Government. In fact the Prison wanders who did allow him to enter without such documents must be promoted for being professional.

  10. How were they “made to stand in the rains”?

    Couldn’t they sit in their cars? I doubt very much that HH and GBM walked to the prison.

  12. There is nothing wrong with a prisoner getting visitors within the terms and conditions of the law.There seems to have been some politics involved here–which should not be. HH & GBM are friends to Dr. Mumba and share nearly same vision on how to save Zambia from the current dullards in charge. In the near not so far distant future, we will have a different but more humane headline from a government of smart leadership that respects human rights
    We hope the headline will be: “PF SENIOR OFFICIALS ALLOWED ACCESS TO EDGAR LUNGU, BUT HIS FAVOURITE PASSTIME–JAMESON WHISKY WAS FOUND ON THE VISITORS, AND CONFISCATED”.
    The world rotates, if you have lived on this earth long enough!

    • Banda, forwell, I doubt it if you are Banda. Bandas are never vindictive. Rupiah Banda is an example. Kindly never spoil our names for vindictiveness we are not like that. Edgar Lungu has nothing with Nevers Mumbas imprisonment. He broke the law, it is in the constitution never to give falsehood to a police officer. Nevers is just plain stupid. He is in a hurry to become president. He preaches godly patience but he fails to do so himself.Even when he was VIP during Mwanawasa’s time he behaved the same

    • Late Sata was in police custody when he was arrested allegedly for theft of a motor vehicle when the offence was non-bailable. We never heard of drama at Chimbokaila arising from not allowing visitations because he was never denied this right. Same prison system under another a lawyer president who respected the rights of even those who didn’t like him but different result. We have a proper scientific experiment here with even a control as part of it.

  13. “…and were made to stand in the rains for close to two hours before being told that they cannot see Dr. Mumba.”

    For your own info double h, dullo gbm should have informed you that while you were incarcerated, your chief Mukuni tried to make those same strandedist moves. Facility managers have a way of operation. You are not allowed to see any incarcerated fellow at will rest you kill them and blame it on boma.

    • Flashback. Not too long ago we had this headline on LT.

      “GBM, Chief Mukuni and Chief Hamusonde stopped from visiting HH at Mukobeko”
      “GBM, Chief Mukuni, Others Try To Visit HH At Mukobeko Prison, But Refused Entry”
      Does that sound familiar?
      These dullo individuals, tefintu.

  14. Tour of duty from court to prison, hospital to the market, wherever they can find votes, the only place they will not visit is the graveyard because no one will vote for them.
    Wonders will never end, and GBM was saying Nevers is a former vice President the court should not have sent him to jail, and they preach the rule of law.
    Zambians be careful with these kind of leaders.

  15. Boma must arrest o of them since they seem to love prisons. Hh’s 3 months was too short. It should have been to beyond 2027. GBM should also taste jail for his militia gang that he boasted of ordering them to guard now-dead-now-alive kambwili. Kambwili should have been left to spend the Easter inside, just so he can sober up.

  16. WITH NO DOUBT HH AND GBM ARE GREAT TEAM , AND THEY CAN MAKE A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN LEAVE HISTORY. ITS A PITY THAT WE ZAMBIANS WE TAKE TIME TO SEE WHAT IS GOOD.

    U SEE MICHEAL SATA, IT TOOK 10 YEARS , TO FIND THE GOOD THING IN HIM.

    GUYS / ZAMBIANS LETS STOP THIS TRIBALISM THINKING MENTALITY , I THINK WE ARE ABOVE THAT. LETS LEARN TO SEE WHAT IS GOOD IN PEOPLE.

  20. What’s unsettling is that the opposition are making headlines on wrong topics and for wrong reasons. They want to gain political sympathy and mileage by demonizing Edgar even when he hasn’t done anything wrong. You don’t just drive a prison and demand to a prisoner at any time as if you were a spouse. Kakoma went to see Hichilema at Lilayi with a firearm, and he made the same wild claims about being allowed to see his boss, but when he was searched a loaded pistol was found him. To date he hasn’t explained what his motive was

    • Ayatollah, you and your minions are stealing our resources and abrogating our constitution, right now the country is an animal farm with no proper laws, you can be jailed for drinking water just like Kambwili’s 33 charges no one knows about. The ACC has just been turned into a tool to use against opponents. Look at the injustices your so called introvert leader is inflicting on poor citizens, how can all of the sudden bailable offenses become unbailable or using a road you pay for become treason. ECL has turned the country upside down, the courts are a mess, the economy is not doing well and no one wants to borrow ECL money as many fear their money might end up creating genocides and other evil acts.

  21. Now PF with their cadre judge have messed up big time, many Christians are not happy with such treatment of a man of God. Fake christian Lungu is going to regret this move as the man of God is going to have the last laugh. These chaps talk about tarnishing the country’s image which they do day in and day out. If I was a PF cadre I will detach myself from such a ruthless government there is no way a normal human being can associate with such a government that almost killed someone then claim to be sympathetic by sending them abroad. These are snakes, It’s good the citizens are reaping the rewards of voting for vision less leaders who are busy stealing their little resources. Next time they get cholera I will laugh the hardest at them, in this modern time you cannot vote for anything just…

  22. Other corruption and stealing, Zambia is a leaderless nation in a backward motion with high lawlessness in GRZ.
    It just baffles me how somebody can continue supporting corrupt elements like ECL and PF!

    ZNBC is a public institution.
    By Zambian law, prisons are entitled to visitation.

    Why is ECL focused on digging his own grave instead of being a good democratic leader.
    Just focus on being democratic and delivering results to the people.
    This is what corruption and being illegal leads to – always suspicious of unknown shadows.

  23. Dr Mumba should be of good cheer. It’s only 3 months in which he can reconnect himself to his Priestly duties. God just wants a few hours with him. Bless him and hope he’ll do better when his small ordeal is over.
