Prof Lumumba

Kenyan Lawyer Professor Patrick Lumumba has revealed that he will be writing to the African Union to protest over his deportation from Zambia.

Prof Lumumba was turned away on Saturday at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport when he arrived to deliver a public lecture on China-Africa relations at Eden University.

Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya later confirmed that Prof. Lumumba was turned away because he was a security risk.

In an interview from Nairobi, Prof Lumumba said he will officially write to the AU this week to protest his deportation.

He said it is displeasing that Zambia, a member of the AU which is advocating for free movement of the people could go against the continental spirit.

Prof. Lumumba also described the statement Ms. Siliya that he posed a security risk as an act of stupidity.

“How do I become a security risk? I only carry ideas. I don’t move with guns. That’s an act of stupidity,” Prof. Lumumba charged.

Meanwhile, opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema says the deportation of Prof. Lumumba is unnecessary shame to the country

“We have studied and fully investigated the issue surrounding the deportation of a highly respected academician and Pan Africanist Prof. PLO Lumumba,” Mr Hichilema said.

“We find the action by the PF leadership to humiliate him in such manner at the airport highly irresponsible, harsh, and goes further to confirm what we have been saying that this Government is led by despots.”

“It is such high profile deportations of our citizens of the world that is denting the image of our country on the international scene, hence shooting ourselves in the foot.”

Mr Hichilema said, “From what we understand, Prof. Lumumba has been giving intellectual discourse in many parts of the world, the recent being in Zimbabwe at an event which we understand even cabinet ministers attended.”

He continued, “So what security risk does Prof. Lumumba pose to Zambia as being claimed by the despotic PF regime. To us, the people who pose security risks are the foreigners who are grabbing our land, grabbing our state assets at the expense of Zambians.”

“Zambia is a global citizen, one would expect that they would treat all nationals from other countries with a level respect and decorum. This is for purposes of good diplomatic relations and security for our citizens who are residents in those countries.”

Mr Hichilema stressed, “As UPND, we value fundamental freedoms of speech, conscious, associations and other liberties as enshrined in the local and international conventions for which we are signatories. Thus PF regime is causing unnecessary shame to the whole world.”

    • This was unnecessary. Should our country be in international news over silly things?
      Guys ba PF, you could have handled this in a smarter and quieter way. Not like this. Investor confidence is already low, and these actions are not helping.

    • I would propose to you all that you may not agree or like Lumumba. But you must have the maturity to tolerate diverse views. When I read comments like “A mouth is more dangerous than a gun”, i really worry. Shouldnt ideas be overcome with ideas? Isn’t that how we grow as a culture? Could it be that this unwillingness to openly discuss and debate ideas is the reason Africa has remained backward. While our friends in Europe debated whether the earth was flat or round, we were busy killing those that questioned why chiefs where selling their subjects to slave traders….

    • ….cont…No, Zambia. We will only grow in if we grow intellectually, culturally.
      Let me remind you all how knowledge grows
      1. Someone comes up with a THESIS.
      2. Someone else develops an ANTI-THESIS opposing the thesis
      3. Someone reconciles the two poles by developing a SYNTHESIS

      4. And so on and so on.

      But we want to be stuck with the same THESIS for ever. No,no,no. We can not grow like that.

    • During His life on earth Jesus was accused of being possessed by Satan and a horde of other evil things by the religious leaders of the day. When he was about to be arrested, one of His disciples wanted to fight back with his sword. Jesus told him “put you sword back in it’s sheath, don’t you think if I wanted to I could summon a legion of angels to fight for me”. The man who had ultimate power was willing to bear scorn, and not unleash his power against those that c walled him names and made ridiculous accusations
      Lesson: Its not always necessary to use your power against your enemies. Sometimes restraint manifest far greater power than force. It’s the power of charector.

    • Firstly I am against dictators and like minded regimes especially those that go to the extent of suppressing free flow of ideas even if such ideas sound incoherent.

      Was at KKI airport for family issues when the deportation of PLO was allegedly taking place and of course had no idea. I have since reviewed a few of PLO’s videos on his speeches and found that those who praise and condemn him alike have no idea what is discussed in pubs in Zed or other places for that matter.

      The speeches are no different from ordinary bar talk. ECL was doing that on a regular basis before going to plot 1 and I am surprised that he should stop others from doing so …

    • Corrupt clueless Lungu is now a liability to Zambia. He’s causing so much damage and shame to our once great country’s image. Obviously he has been bought and paid for by the Chinese. Zambia is now being run by a Chinese shadow government who are making all the decisions that Lungu has to follow. Most likely they ordered him and his henchmen not to allow professor Lumumba into the country. This kleptocratic regime dared to label prof Lumumba a security risk, and yet they let the Chinese run around with guns in our country, shooting innocent Zambians for target practice. This guy needs to be impeached soon and removed from office, if we’re to salvage our country from total ruin. We need to take our country back from this corrupt regime. Impeach this clueless corrupt guy now !

  2. Entering any foreign country is a privilege and not a right. Kenya has more issues with tribalism and corruption than Zambia. A mouth is more dangerous than a gun. Prof Lumumba is merely a noise maker who has an agenda and doesn’t even practice what he preaches. He was a lawyer for the KEC defending against the purported stolen elections in Kenya. Let him stay in Kenya and stop Kikuyus killing Luos and the deportation of Miguna. His own country Kenya deported a Kenyan born lawyer Miguna Miguna and he has been quiet about it.

  4. YOU ARE CORRECT PROFESSOR THAT THE STATEMENT FROM THIS ZAMBIAN ZONDWA SILIYA IS AN ACT OF STUPIDITY AND VERY MUCH INDEED.
    I VOTED FOR SATA IN 2011 BECAUSE OF THIS FOOLISH WOMAN’S BEHAVIOR WHEN SHE WAS IN MMD.
    SHE USED TO INSULT THE FOUNDER OF THE PF MICHEAL CHILUFYA SATA AND USED TO SAY THAT SATA PUTS ON BLACK BOMBASA AND TODAY SHE IS THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND GOVT SPOKESPERSON.
    WHAT A SHAME TO LUNGU AND DORA ZONDWA HERSELF.
    THIS WOMAN DOES NOT DESERVE ANY POSITION IN PF AT ALL.THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SUFFERED FOR PF WHEN IT WAS IN OPPOSITION AND ARE THE ONES WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO BE MINISTER.
    IT IS SO SHAMEFUL AND COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THE ZAMBIAN GOVT CAN BEHAVE IN A SUCH A MAN TOWARDS A RESPECTED MAN LIKE PRO LUMUMBA.
    HE ONLY CARRIES IDEAS AND NOT WEAPONS AS HE HAS SAID HIMSELF…

    • Every country chooses who enters its country and who doesnt. @Enka you know very well that as a foreigner you can’t say anything that the Americans deem a threat and be allowed to enter the USA. Lumumba made a stupid comment about Zambia and he still expected to be welcomed, no. With the advent of social media you must be very careful of what you post online because it will haunt you in future.

    • Ba Enka please keep quite and respect the rule and law of your country. How many people did trump refuse entry in the US who had varied visas and documents? You never said anything you went into hiding because you were afraid of been deported. But on Zambia you’re busy yapping this and that. Learn to respect the laws of your country whether good or bad. Americans are busy supporting the bad laws of the government, you’re busy selling your country because of sausage and chicken. Shame on you.

  6. There is something wrong with minister Dora, how come that people do not appreciate her intelligence? The latest remark is from an outsider, the professor who has used the word “stupidity” and this is the definition:”having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense”. This is the lady that has a degree in something and she is expected to think like a graduate. if it was Mumbi Phiri yes, we would agree but not you that has seen the university class.I feel so bad when people always disagree with Dora, not that they are wrong but that our minister does not put things she says iinto the test tube of thought.

Learn from your Zim friends whose leaders and public officers used to deport and disposes foreigners for no good reason! The ordinary Zim friends were the ones to face the music when they were being hunted like wild animals for deportation in Botswana and SA! To every action, don’t forget that there is an equal and opposite reaction! Don’t support $tupid actions of $tupid leaders carelessly! I think it’s time we had travel bans for these our misleaders! $tupid

  12. Just recently Laura Miti was denied entry to SA , Tendai was deported back to Zimbabwe and Miguna miguna was denied entry to Kenya , WHY HE DiDNT WRITE TO AU..?
    Again WE don’t want Lumumba to speak on our behalf concerning bilateral relationship with China.
    In fact his father was killed because of the same attitude.Now he’s behaving like his father ( Patrice lumumbashi , ancestor of lumumbashi province Or katanga province in DRC).

LUMUMBA is A POPULAR NAME AMONG ENLIGHTENED and PATRIOTIC AFRICANS, they name their children or themselves after Lumumba TO HONOUR HIM,HIS COURAGE and PANAFRICANISM- JUST LIKE KWAME NKURUMAH!!

  13. Stupid per se is near to Academic Staff Club, especially over a glass of Tusker or Mosi. It is better to remain calm, even when under extreme provocation. It is clear that the two sides were inspired. The professor was saying one thing and certain Government officials were saying another thing. It is better to produce invitation letters at the port of entry (KKIA). As for the university invitation authorities, it is better to meet the professor at the airport. It is better to discuss over the phone. Making things clear is necessary to avoid misunderstandings. In my view, fear of a professor is not unusual. By definition, professors are critical of status quo. They work for a better society and in doing so they offend more Conservative elements in the political establishment.

  19. I have heard this man before. Its a good idea not to allow him in the country. His ideas are disrespectful to protocol. How can he talk about other countries without giving the leaders a chance to replay? He fuels tension which we have enough at the moment. In the meantime government owe us an explanation on whats going on with China not ECL’s attitude of dismissing issues. If you dont give your daughter money for her needs other people will. Address our needs BOMA before bene Lumumba come in

Retrieve the Mandela lecture, The talk that included Kaunda, you will notice that your this guys takes chances. We expect arm chair critics like HH of Zambia to come out very strongly since his strength is on the social media and not in the ballot box. For Lumumba that is his new found career after loosing cases that he presented.

If this is the best government they can afford to assemble to run the affairs of country, yes then let the Chinese come colonize you, this country has no capacity to find leadership in itself, it was a big mistake to have attained independence.

    • I agree with you. You can imagine how low the IQs are that one can support the deportation of a harmless man like Prof Lumumba. He travels countries to give those same lectures to students and academicians, only in Zambia is he looked at as a threat.

    What was the motive of the host of the talk show when everyone is aware of the current trade war against China by the West. And zambia being used as a pone for selfish reasons. The government have the duty to protects it’s gains from people like Lumumba and his financiers. What talk about Chinese investment in africa here as if we can’t didst it ouse lives especially at the hight of sustained media campaign again China and zambia as a point of reference based on a rumor and hatred for China success. Who are his funder. I will not be suprise that he is being funded by Taiwan of or known enemies of China. Did he seek permission to come and talk against China in zambia. What will China think if he is given a platform to come and work…

    • @soso You have a point. Bloggers talking about the IQ of our leaders are actually insulting the collective intellect of Zambians that voted for them. What is so special about a talk show-man (Prof. Lumumba)? our leaders have more important work of developing the nation by building roads, clinics, schools and protecting our country from vultures who are looking for carcases killed by various carnivores. Those supporting the talk-show man should ask him (Lumumba) to send them a you tube video. Zambia has more serious issues to attend to than entertaining a talk show-man. One issue, one can refer to is that the talkshow man wants to write to AU, this shows that this man is an infant. What does he expect the AU to do? ask Zambia not to deport him? who is he? He should also be told that Zambia…

People like you who carry ‘words’ have started conflicts and millions of people have died. For example a person might just say “MY VOTES HAVE BEEN STOLEN” and the whole country can be on if people believe it is trues.

Instead of living an ordinary life, Nkuruma started to live a super luxurious life like sleeping in an all gold bed. The army got fed up and overthrew him. He died in exile.

The Chinese have rushed here in their truck loads selling wares, mining except siring children, the Zim farmers left under Robert and rushed here and still are, Zodwa wanted to come dance here, Kofi also preferred to perform here, seerer One backed by Major 1 also cried foul when denied entry…even Biti a man still free in his homeland cried something….and now PLO is writing to AU perhaps to have Zambia kicked out and whilst he is at it why not write to the Commonwealth, SADC or even Comesa…uhm…am missing something here…my land is lovely or we wouldn’t have so many falling all over themselves to get here.

    • This professor can’t even attempt to enter Angola or Ethiopia the African countries that have the biggest loans from China. Oh why not try Zimbabwe? He can’t even think about it.

  39. PF is slowly handing over power to UPND and Zambians will vote for HH from Nakonde to Livingstone Chipata to Solwezi. This will be a sweet victory for HH only second to MCS victory over MMD under RB. And tribal politics won’t be at play this time around because the low to which we have fallen is for everyone to see. Zambia will unite like no other time. Watch the space, we need sanity to our country these thugs have gone too far. And no one should jump ship but account to every act. Much the same way KK went down when the nation arose so much in the time we shall arise as a nation One Zambia One Nation ????????

  41. The western world is busy laughing at us. The poeple we glorify- the so called professor Lumumba. He is just a conman. Listen carefully you will note how he messes the debts of events. But because Africans we are so bad at reading we accept those terrible mistakes and we cheer. How can 1961 be so close to 1969 and the man just mentions dates and nobody cares to listen or counter check. This the so called professor who says that Kaunda had only $ 8,000 in his account when he lost power after rulling for 27 yrs, can anyone believe that crap from this conman? Infact he was insulting our leader KK.

  42. Misplaced Heritage as Africans,imperilism is bak in africa except and suffice to say in the form of partisanship & investors,whlst i have a great respect for patrice lumumbas interlect on the continent,the manner his deportation was handled is questionable much as government and leadership must answer to its citizens,what is Zambia hiding?? Why would a discourse on chine be a security risk…because lumumba could have been cleared by customs securitywise..Lets weigh issues, be awake for our Childrens & those after them…no partisan politics Will heal damages caused by leadership covering check and balances,,,like those chiefs who sold our Brothers and sisters to slavery,let voices redeem Before doom!! I love Zambia and proudly a zambian.

  43. Has anyone thought of what the minister meant by security risk? What if the govt knew of a plot to kill the prof while in Zambia? That is a security risk. The fallout would have been worse than the denial of entry as the prof says. He was not deported. He was denied entry, maybe for his own security. People have been killed for less.

    I have not heard of anything the prof says that is brilliant enough to topple a govt. I doubt the govt. feared his words. More likely the thinking was that a person who has not even read his works or heard the prof speak might have been tempted to harm him.

  44. WHEN I READ THIS, I WAS DONE GOING THROUGH COMMENTS-THANKS JourneyMan
    “”I would propose to you all that you may not agree or like Lumumba. But you must have the maturity to tolerate diverse views. When I read comments like “A mouth is more dangerous than a gun”, i really worry. Shouldnt ideas be overcome with ideas? Isn’t that how we grow as a culture? Could it be that this unwillingness to openly discuss and debate ideas is the reason Africa has remained backward. While our friends in Europe debated whether the earth was flat or round, we were busy killing those that questioned why chiefs where selling their subjects to slave traders….””

    THERE JUST SO MANY *****S IN ZAMBIA THAT SPIT TOO MUCH GARBAGE ALL THE TIME.

  45. Professor Lumumba is one of greatest speakers I have ever heard. I hope he makes it known worldwide that he was deported because the PF don’t want the people of Zambia to know what disaster lies ahead by giving Zambia to the Chinese. I hope all investors have seen or heard about this let them all withdraw their investments from this Country which is being led by a dictator and thieves!!!
