STATE House spokesperson Amos Chanda says opposition alliance chairman Charles Milupi will have criminal and civil legal actions instituted against him.

Announcing at a media briefing at State House yesterday, Mr Chanda said he had instructed his lawyers to commence civil and criminal proceedings against Milupi for accusing Mr. Chanda of running and funding a militia group with sole purpose to perpetrate violence.

“As for Charles Milupi, in my personal capacity, and also as a State officer, he will be hearing from my lawyers pretty soon. I also know that both civil and criminal proceedings may be brought against him. We do not know under any legal terms the Opposition Alliance; it’s a formless and headless grouping of people just desperate to get power! So, there can be no legal suit brought against such as a formless; it has no legal personality! So, Mr Milupi, who we saw in the video, will be hearing from my lawyers pretty soon. They will bring both civil and criminal proceedings against him. So, in his personal capacity, civil and criminal proceedings will be instituted against him,” Mr. Chanda said.

“The Zambian people must learn that, every action must have consequences; every word you say, must mean something; you can’t just go on a platform and accuse other people of doing something.”

“I was not in the country during the Sesheke by-election; in all my life, I have never been to Sesheke. How can I command a militia in a district that I don’t even know how it looks? I have never been! I was not on the campaign…But even those that were performing duties like Mr (Kaizer) Zulu, Mr Kampyongo…Mr Kampyongo commands the police force as a political head of (Ministry) of Home Affairs; there are police commanders who answer to him; he does not command a militia!” he vehemently started.

He said Milupi would have to answer and pay for his reckless statement noting that his counterpart Hakainde Hichilema threw him under a bus because he knew the recourse of such reckless utterances.

“I know Mr Hakainde is a clever man! He was cheering on this senseless man (Milupi) making those allegations without recourse to the consequences of his words. So, those are the steps that have been taken. But just in summary; it is to state that there is no element of truth whatsoever,” said Mr. Chanda.

  1. What will you achieve by suing Milupi.

    This just politics and never act from your position of strength.

    We are intelligent enough and we dont courts of laws to define lies

    In courr he will simply answer: NO COMMENT. And what will have achieved

    Am a non firable, non partisan political consultant.

    • Be level minded you upnd cadres we need leaders who will speak to truth to the people not lying to gain political mileage. Whether Amos Chanda is a small boy or what Mr. Milupi and hh or anyone has any right to lie against him. Amos has every right to sue Milupi, if Milupi has evidence let him present it in court so that Amos can answer. Ukusaila is not good, I know upnd is good at that. Learn to speak the truth. I don’t support pf in most cases but why should I support upnd in my normal senses with this kinds of behavior from the leaders. Leaders whose arm is get to power by all means, lying to the people and to the international community and never take responsibility of anything. I think am smarter than that. Only headless people join such parties.

    • Great. Let Milupi and his fellow Delusionals prove that Sunday indeed commands a militia. These are serious allegations and he should sue for millions of dollars for slander and bankrupt Milupi and see if the Delusional Dictator HH will even give him(Milupi) bus fare!

    • Chanda should sue in his private capacity. Don’t use our money for your own personal agendas. The opposition should be checking that our money is not wasted like this

    • Zambian politics is primitive and self-centered egoistic enriching adventure. None of the politicians and their minions are in politics to work for uplifting the downtrodden, rather all of them use them as vote-bank to enter statehouse and parliament and then treat them as their Bonded Slaves, throwing crumbs at them while the Elitist Politicians led by Monarch President live in luxury, globe hopping and shamelessly taking away the last morsel from the plates of peasant farmers, workers, street boys and girls, children, mothers, sisters, daughters, parents, grandparents, retired and destitutes.
      Shame on Media Savvy intellectuals, busy taking partisan stand and not thinking and working for the majority of Zambians living in abject poverty!

    • Short memory, do you remember?
      DISGRACED State House Aide Kaizer Zulu his counterpart Amos Chanda, Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo and Minister in-charge of National Development Planning Lucky Mulusa on Tuesday night celebrated the arrest of UPND President Hakainde Hichilema in style at a pub on 8 Reedbuck road in Kabulonga.
      The four senior PF officials took turns boasting how they had made sure they had fixed the opposition leader and how they were controlling state institution.
      The officials who were in the company of another mercenary, Lewis Mosho and some former Post Journalist and what looked like prostitutes, drunk the night out and only left 8 reedbuck after midnight.
      “Natuka chita ka cikala…kalemona kwati ni ka President nako. In fact Ba (kakoma) Kankanja is very weak…

      “Natuka chita ka cikala…kalemona kwati ni ka President nako. In fact Ba (kakoma) Kankanja is very weak if I didn’t direct him upto now that ka cikala would still be enjoying the comfort of his house,” Kaiser Zulu was heard bragging before Kampyongo interjected,
      “Awe kachepa sana. We are in charge …we are serious operatives. In fact kulefwayika fye kafwile mu jele. Ni mweba Amos you are too soft this should have been done immediately we came from Mongu,” said Kampyongo.

  3. Sunday Chanda you are just an overzealous small boy who has just joined politics in Zambia. We know the politics of Zambia a lot better. We have seen and experienced what you haven’t. And now you Sunday Chanda in your corrupt and stinking OF government you think you are Lungu’s effective Vuvuzela to trade in lies and scare the indigenous Zambians who are crying for the best for our Motherland.
    Sunday Chanda your cup will be full soon together with your corrupt boss.

    • Iwe ka TRUTH, BUFI BOBE! If you didn’t vote, then hang them! Follow the stooges in the diaspora at your own peril. The bulk of them are ill-informed or have lost touch with our country and seek solace in foolish posts.
      They’ll never see our govt’s had work coz they live in fake luxury. So they want our govt to change Zambia overnight for them to come back and continue their gluttony down here. MA RUBBISSHHI!

  12. PATRIOTIC FRONT IS A GROUP OF TERRORISTS. Violence started when Stella Lebogani was dropped as IG for being SOFT with the opposition. Kanganja was then appointed with clear instructions. I will not VOTE for TERRORISTS AND TEARGASSERS.

  16. Amos Chanda is a very junior officer at State House, there are other senior officials doing their work quietly but diligently. He shouldn’t entangle himself in politics nor receive gifts of Land in foreign countries

  18. This is one pathetic and arrogant clown who got too big for his boots and over – extended his mandate as he massages the ego of his press – averse corrupt boss. Amos epitomises a rotten and dysfunctional cabal of a thieving “elite” who have gotten so rich while the nation got poorer. A day of reckoning is coming when he and his lot must be hauled before the courts for fleecing the people of Zambia who entrusted them with resources to manage, but they voraciously abused the people’s mandate with maddening greed.

  19. As a civil servant Chanda is not supposed to go political – no. Why he is mixing civil service job with politics is something that leaves me with no option but to just think of how dull the man is. He should just stay away from politics and mind his job otherwise he will be bruised with these politicians – big time.
    Its a disaster mwee!!!!

  20. Every Zambian has a right to sue, even stooges and rich presidents of briefcase parties. Let Amos Sue, and Milupi be on the defensive. Our lawyers will make money, which then the spend to boost the economy of Zambia.
