New Labour Party Leader Fresher Siwale spent his second night in police custody on Wednesday after he was picked up by police on Monday.

Mr Siwale who along with People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti have launched a campaign questioning the nationality and identity of President Edgar Lungu was arrested picked up at his Chelstone home on Monday.

Heavily armed police officers stormed Mr Siwale’s house with a search warrant to search for a National Registration Card (NRC) which is believed to belong to the “real” Edgar Lungu.

It was not clear whether the NRC was found at Mr Siwale’s house after the search but he was immediately taken to undisclosed police station for further questioning.

From Monday, no one including his immediate family members where aware of his exact whereabouts as Police did not disclose where they were holding the opposition leader.

But on Wednesday afternoon, Mr Mulongoti managed to track Mr Siwale at Chilenje Police Station in Lusaka after going round almost all the police stations across the city.

Mr Mulongoti liased with the Officer in Charge who confirmed that Mr Siwale had not been charged yet.

When reached for a comment, Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo said the Police is not issuing any statement on the matter at this stage.

And Mr Mulongoti has stated that he is not aware that the police are after him.

He said there is no need for the police to launch a man haunt on him as he is readily available.

Mr Mulongoti said he does not under why the police had to storm his office and Mr Siwale’s house looking for an NRC as if the duo was Mr . Lungu’s guardians.

He stated that the police should go ahead and charge Mr Siwale so that they could have their day in court.

“We have been waiting for this. We would just like the police to quickly go ahead and charge Mr Siwale and myself if they have anything against us and allow us to appear in court where all the evidence we have will be presented,” Mr Mulongoti said.

      I’m slowly starting to believe Mulongoti & Siwale after seeing Lungu’s response. Lungu can’t dialogue without abuse of police.

      One day the same police will refuse to carry out your dirty jobs. Remember in the last days of UNIP when police refused to cancel MMD rallies on behalf of KK?

      Achimwene, just provide evidence instead of using brutality.

    • @Nubian Princess
      When Ayoub Mustafa becomes a president one day, don’t complain.

      Lebanese (Ziko ni yanu, Ndalama ni watu) also have NRCs & were born in Zambia & went to Zambian schools. We need to protect the highest office in the land from abuse by foreigners.

      KK, a foreigner is responsible for taking Zambia 27 years backwards as he started copying leadership style from his home country, Malawian dictator Kamuzu Banda. Lungu’s dictatorial tendencies, abuse of police, illegal detentions are Malawian by nature.

    • 1. Lungu is a Miracle baby born from both Eliza Jere and Zanalesi Zulu,
      2. Lungu was born at a Whites-Only Ndola Central Hospital.
      3. As an adult Lungu is a unique man who has not had a funeral, wedding or graduation ceremony of any relative. Very, very strange.
      4. Lungu has no real relatives besides Tasila & his immediate family. No real uncles, aunties, cousins, etc.

      Mulongoti & Siwale have a point which only Lungu himself can explain.

      Alot of Zambian diasporans in RSA are being dispossessed of their legally obtained RSA IDs at the borders. Imwe that’s when you’re busy kissing foreigners bu.mz

    • why should the POLICE search and arrest siwale if that was not true. These allegations are not new in the history of Zambia regarding the nationality of presidents but how the current commander in chief has reacted leaves more dust to stay around. There is always a way of handling such issues if you are innocent than use the POlice

      21

      5
    • Chulu, in the past the allegations were based on the issue of parentage. Banda did not hide where his parents where born neither did Kaunda. Chiluba’s history was know so was Mwanawasa. The fact of the matter is that everyone who has come out to defend Lungu starts at knowing him at Mukuba Secondary school. None seem to have know him in primary school. None played with him in Chimwemwe. The other gap is that after secondary school Lungu went to national service no one has come out that i was at this national service camp with him. Equally most people don’t know that Lungu tried to join Zambia army and was discharged. He suddenly appears at UNZA. He does not know that Edga Changwa Lungu was partner in a law firm in Livingstone. The is no smoke without fire….

    • Mr. Siwale’s looks authentic man. I start to get confused.

  3. Mulongoti, Mulongoti what are you trying prove? Why then did you campaign for President Lungu if you have reservations about him? What has changed? Is it because the appointment you desperately expected never came your way? Leave President Lungu alone and give him space to work and develop our country. You guys had your time and you wasted it bad kind. You cant just believe your eyes that President Lungu is so focused and transforming Zambia for the delight of every citizen, mwanya mwembushi mwe. Viva ECL, Viva PF.

  4. Let him tell the nation how he obtained that nrc. There was a time an officer from the registration office connived with a postal clerk by forging an NRC which they later used to receive money sent to some woman by her son. The two were eventually traced and imprisoned. So it’s easy to forge an NRC especially that the civil service is infiltrated by Upnd sympathizers. Like it or not this can happen and is happening.

    4

    14
    • I am also wondering why Mr. Siwale is keeping somebody else’s NRC, and why he did not bring this up when ECL was Minister of Defense.

  5. We have too many adult f00ls in Zambia. Just talking total rabbish like street kids who smoke petrol. Mulongoti and Siwale are just ba.st.ards

    15
    • if Mulongoti and Siwale are talking rubbish why arrest Siwale? It is his democratic right to ask about the president s nationality and it is the president s right as well to sue Siwale and Mulongoti for evidence on slander. why arrest him over that, this is the sort of behaviour that is making this matter very suspicious.

  14. In this day of so much happening around the net all kinds of stuff, documents, etc, can be procured, can be created to look like the real thing. So people must not be excited with purported ‘evidence’ of the existence of documents, paraphernalia etc.

    1. Why did Mulongoti and Msoni campaign for ECL when they had the evidence that he was not Zambian?
    2. Why are so many UPND losers not trekking to Petauke to verify the origins of this man who has shamed them twice?

    Young man, Mulongoti is not in detention. Why?
    Siwale was arrested and he is now in detention because after the search at his house, police found fake documents, NRC, passport etc with fake numbers. Where did he get them from? This is criminality and serious.

  26. If any ***** steals my NRC or passport, I would wish him the same fate that has befallen Siwale. In the mid – 1990s, some *****s connived with other *****s at the Department of National Registration to produce an NRC with my details and then use it in their attempt to cash a stolen cheque to Indian shop owners at Kamwala Shopping Centre. Fortunately, the Indian shop owner was suspicious and reported the matter to the police, resulting in the arrest and imprisonment of these identity thieves. I am therefore totally shocked that some morons here should sympathize with Siwale’s theft of ECL’s NRC! Do these morons fully understand the gravity of this offense?

    All our parents came from the federation of Nyasaland and Rhodesia. We were one big Country. This is why we have Baby Shona as well all over Chongwe, they are not Zimbabweans they just got caught in the other side of the fence when wall was built.

  32. Fresher Siwale? That’s what? Is he Zambian? No, of course not. I have irrefutable proof that Siwale is not his real name, his registration card is forged. His real name is Freshman Tshwete, a South African conman hired by Maimane last year to discredit the government of Zambia. He sneaked in while Maimane was deported. He was given intensive training in one or two Zambian languages and some indigenous dishes like nchunga, kapenta, cibwabwa and kalembula. I went with him to the same primary school in Eastern Cape where he failed his matric while his twin sister went on to become a successful Professor of Economics. Their parents died 18 years ago and they went to the same primary school with my mother in 1953 in a squatter township school in eastern cape.
