Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has described the allegations leveled against him by NDC as malicious and baseless.

In a statement Mr. Lusambo said the malicious allegations issued by the NDC border on criminal defamation of his personal character and that of the public office he occupy.

He said the scheme to link him to the reported death of an NDC official is not only callous but cheap and a very unafrican manner of mourning a departed colleague. Mr.Lusambo said everyone who was in Roan before, during and after voting knows that he was nowhere near the said violent incident.He has challenged the NDC to produce evidence that will show his role in the unfortunate incident.

The NDC media department reported on its facebook page that their NDC Lusaka province youth chairman Obed Kasongo died after succumbing to injuries inflicted on him by Bowman Lusambo.

They allege that Mr. Kasongo was the party stewart who was on April 11, 2019 beaten with an iron bar by Lusaka province Minister Bowman Lusambo. The assault of Mr. Kasongo happened a few hours before the opening of polls for the Roan parliamentary by election in Luanshya. Mr. Kasongo 52, died at the levy Mwanawasa hospital yesterday where he had gone to receive treatment.

The late Kasongo had been receiving treatment at the hospital following his return from Luanshya a fortnight ago.
He had suffered severe wounds after his attack at the hands of the pf cabinet Minister who personally assaulted the deceased.

And NDC National Youth Chairman Charles Kabwita called for the immediately arrest of Lusaka province Minister Bowman Lusambo.Mr. Kabwita said the NDC had officially opened a docket at Luanshya police two weeks ago against Lusambo. Mr. Kabwita says Luanshya police should now arrest Minister Lusambo in connection with the death.

    • This is a very serious allegation that needs to be investigated. If Mr. Lusambo is guilty then he needs to face the law. Knowing the calibre f person he is, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true.
      On the ccontrary if this is proved to be a false allegation then Mr. Lusambo has the right to sue for devaluation damages.
      But at the end of the day, it’s really sad that PF violence is now claiming people’s lives. This is the kind of leadership our nation has. A bunch of violent thugs. The future of our country is really worrying. We may end up seeing unrest in the country at this rate.

    • If we had a descent government, Lusambo would be suspended pending a full investigation. But because he was serving the interests of Lungu, nothing will come of it.
      Kambwili already mentioned that Lusambo was in Lwanshya and committing violence on election day and the preceeding days.
      If this violent situation being propagated by PF is not checked, it will lead to serious chaos in the country.

    • The charge unfortunately can only be manslaughter, which is a much lesser charge than murder.

      Lusambo should be convicted if he was involved in any way. Even if he was not there himself, he is guilty if he sent those thugs to do harm to the late NDC member.

    • Just keep the dockets, medical records, evidence safe, & forward to I.C.C.
      Not only will their sanctioning Boss Jona Chakolwa face corruption /embezzlement charges when it leaves office, but will be carted off to the Haig, where it will sit in a Prison cell for years, unable to enjoy its corrupt proceeds Chapwa!

    • Instead of rushing to conclusions, carry out a postmortem. Then and only then can you accuse Lusambo of such a heinous crime. RIP Mr Kasongo.

    • This sounds like Kambwili allegations. Most people saw the video of this man were he was explaining that he had been attacked. He said “by people he did not know”. There was no name mentioned. So this Lusambo name seems to be a new discovery by kambwilis

    • #1.3; This looks like premeditated (Murder).
      For the accused to have used a weapon or even picked a stone to cause harm, it was intentional.

    • People get used like toilet paper be they PF, UPND or now NDC. Politics is the devil s game because the devil was the first politician.

      The best leader today that I can think of to rule this country is not HH, not Kambwili,
      not Nawakwi but it is Ngandu Magande but how many people would rally behind him? Very few because most people are sadly f.oo.ls who can’t think objectively.

    • Kasongo was 52, and still call him a youth or behaving as a youth like his murderer?
      Lusambo knew who Kasongo was, that’s why he can’t denie murdering him.

      unfortunately it won’t be so because they are Government in power and in Zambia The”Rule of Law”is not respected especially by the people in power.

  5. The thug called Lusambo masquerading as a servant of the people is a criminal who should step aside and be arrested by the police without fail.

    • Instead of insulting people because they do not agree with your political choices is not helpful. It would be more helpful encourage people to vote your candidate by presenting fact about why others should see what you see and vote with you. Insulting them pushes them further away

  6. Just looking into this case, there should be a witness who saw this tragedy when it too place, the diseased he would have come forward to the police department and report the person of interest. But since no witnesses or officers had reported the incident, I think it is baseless even though I despise this monkey Lusambo .

    • SAMSUNG LUNGU.
      YOU KNOW THAT EVEN IF THE WITNESSES WERE,NOTHING WAS GOING TO LUSAMBO BOWMAN AS LONG AS HE IS LUNGU’S BOOTLICKER.
      IS SAD THAT SOMEONE HAS TO LOOSE LIFE BECAUSE OF POLITICS.
      WE DO NOT HAVE LEADERSHIP IN THIS COUNTRY.
      JUST CHECK THESE PF CADRES ON CAMERA THREATENING TO KILL CK AND RAPE HIS MOTHER AND THESE ARE WELL KNOWN THUGS BUT THE POLICE CAN NOT DO ANY THING.
      LUNGU KUWAYAWAFYE.

    • In Zambian we believe the police should use social media to arrest. Not reporting to the police also I think there is a mistake..52 is not s youth.. can even be a grand father.. all the way from Lusaka..to copperbelt .this is very sad..

  7. 52 years old and he’s youth chairman? When are the real youths going to be allowed to take these positions? Coming to the story, I still don’t understand why Zambians have continued to butcher each other on behalf of some politician. My late grandfather never allowed us to attend political gatherings, even to stand by the road to watch a politician passing by. Please keep away from these ugly sites. A life has been needlessly lost and no amount of accusations or denials will bring it back.

  8. First of all Condolences to the family of the deceased. Secondly, Zambians must stop killing each other over political differences. Our forefathers fought for our independence must be turning in their graves seeing Zambians dying over politics 54 years after independence. We can differ politically but that is no reason to assault let alone kill an opponent.
    We must from today retire all political cadres and conduct massive political education in all parties.

  9. Sad
    Lusambo is not a character a Normal president can entrust to deliver quality leadership to people in a country or society. because,he is violent, thug, useless human being doesn’t respect the rights of fellow citizens.
    Unfortunately the Zambian police can not arrest him because there is no separation of powers in Zambia.

  10. Someone has died, leaving the family asking questions and in other problems. Meanwhile, the people who have caused this death are busy justifying their evil acts of violence. When the Priests says there will be violence in 2021, the same people who are killing others are in the forefront condemning the statements. Now you see!!!! My the soul of our beloved brother rest in internal peace. God rewards accordingly.

  11. This should be a wake up call for everyone, particularly these so called cadres. You will die for foolish causes. Unfortunately for the deceased, his family has to suffer the consequences of his demise. Politicians will continue to benefit from people’s foolishness

  12. The maxim, “Onus probandi”, simply requires that he who alleges must prove.
    My longevity of years on earth have also taught me that the allegation and the proving is do not reside in social media.
    Neither does the plea.
    Those who know the suspects, please move in quickly before water tight alibis are mooted.
    A human being has been murdered in our land. By election. In a Christian nation?
    No wonder Gandhi indicted us Christians.
    I mourn with the family.

      Kwatako amano iwe PF cadre. Leka ukutuka uwafwa. Lelo it may be Kasongo, tomorrow it may be you. Have respect for the life of Kasongo. He had a family, children and friends. Do not be insensitive to their feelings in their time of sorrow and helplessness. PF also had people coming out of Roan. Do you say they should also have been killed like Kasongo who came from Kapiri?

  16. Saddest party of society is that no political party wants to admit to a wrong. On this issue instead of feeling sympathy for the deceased and his family, all I see are innuendo and threats. This kind of behavior will only worsen the situation. Let’s educate our people to say no to all politicians whether opposition or ruling.

  18. Kalaba, it’s sad that you can demonized the dead just because it suits you.
    I’m a very qualified forensic psychiatrist and I can assure that Lusambo has a long outstanding history of both verbal and physical violence and has not shown any remorse or accepting his wrong doings. Lusambo if he was in a developed country could have be referred for forensic service to have index offence therapy, relapse prevention, and more importantly counselling. Major Kachingwe suffered from lusambo brutality, even Michael Sata. Lusambo uses his inadequacy, shattered image, using violence behaviour to suppress those the people in power maybe fear to hold on to power. Violence exhibited by lusambo is within his DNA. Lusambo enjoys and feels happy when he inflict pain on others. Die hard mentality is…

  20. In this country we need spiritual intervention. We need serious prayers to transform our culture and values. For example, insults on social media platforms are actually fuelling a very serious problem for the country. Imagine where someone says ” Twanaka, Lungu ne mwa shakwe balonge” meaning we are tired Lungu with his dogs must pack and go. The pf fools, *****s, sure these are alarming statements. There are so many examples particulary vented on the ruling party but few on the opositions. Now thesr insults are published the way they are said by an individual in the pretext that its a political party which has said that. This is a dangerous precedent being set.

  21. Is Bowman a killer? I don’t think so? Is he a violent man? Could be, after his former name was Die Hard Youth which can also be translated as Die Hard Cadre.

    Now, why wasn’t Obed Kasongo evacuated to South Africa? Surely there must be a Sourh African hospital befitting his status? I mean even one in Soweto suburb.

  22. Lusambo should be taken court as an individual since he was the one heading PF in Roan Elections.He will defend him self court.The family or NDC should do so, otherwise violence will not end because there is too much lawlessness in the country.

  25. PF never respect the law. The court ruled that Ministers who remained in office pay the money, and up to now nothing no one talks about it and they have completely ignored court ruling.
    Now they want MPs who did not participate in NDF , should be arrested and imprisoned. Edgar does not mean well in this nation. He does not respect humanity and the church.
    When time come for election ECL will be troating from Church to Church so that he is voted onecemore. He has nothing to offer.Zambians work up. the guy is bussy stealing.
