National Democratic Congress Vice President Joseph has reiterated the party’s call for Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo to be arrested for his involvement in the murder of its Lusaka Province youth Chairperson Obed Kasongo.

Mr. Akafumba has urged the Police to exhibit professionalism in the manner they will handle Mr. Lusambo’s involvement in a murder case

He said the death of the NDC Lusaka province youth chairman was caused by the assault on him by Mr. Lusambo with a metal bar on April 11th 2019, last month and is regrettable.

Mr. Akafumba a seasoned lawyer and former Justice Permanent Secretary has given police 24 hours to arrest Mr. Lusambo.

He lamented that NDC has previously reported a number of PF cadres for violent behaviour but police have failed to arrest such characters.

However, Mr. Lusambo recently denied any involvement in Mr. Kasongo’s death and described the allegations levelled 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.

    • Please ba Lungu, your minister is a murder suspect, please do something.

    • @Mushota, it’s not always we should be try light up atmosphere.
      This is serious. Lusaka hacking of Kasogo was reported during voting in Luanshya. He didn’t just in the spot.
      What is remaining is for State House to authorize police to arrest.
      Let’s be serious @ Mushota.

    • LUSAMBO’S OWN CONSCIOUS WILL KILL HIM-NDC

      It had to take me this long to write about this comrade who passed on due to the injuries inflicted on him by the Provincial minister of Lusaka.

      “Bowman, walanjipaya” these were his words as he was hacked by the hyper Minister and member of parliament for Kabushi.

      Bowman ordered his men to stop the hacking after he identified Mr. Obed Kasongo.. He’s that person he knew very .

      Inside Bowman’s heart there’s that sorrow, guilty conscience and a permanent sickness That Won’t heal. He knows that he’s killed a father and a husband.

      Bowman can escape the long arm of the law today but he won’t escape his conscience. Don’t get surprised if you see him mad.

      The only help you can offer Bowman is to face the law and not…

    • To those of you making idi0tic comments when a life has been lost. Please just stop! A man has been murdered needlessly. A father has been lost. A husband has been taken away. Have you no shame to start uttering nonsense? Have you no conscience? Please just stop.
      An innocent man has been murdered. Show some respect.
      Lusambo will pay for his sins. It’s guaranteed. Even if Lungu protects him, he will pay.

    • If AKAFUMBA is a legal mind why is he turning this into a public spectacle by issuing ultimatums. Don’t be prejudicial.
      Mean while LUSAMBO is calling it defamation.
      Forks let the court litigate.
      Murder and Defamation are unlawful in Zambia as things stand. Be serious. Fyonse ma politics.
      I wanna see what next when the AKAFUMBA 24hrs ultimatum ends.

    • It’s sad if this is what Zambian politics will come to. The sad part is someone freely said he slapped someone a bible slap meaning if that somebody can do that, what will stop him from getting involved in the same murder. Some times we speak what is to come and for this reason let police investigation get to the root of the reports on ground .

  4. Why did the NDC have to wait for someone to die to accuse Lusambo, doesnt make sense. Before this man died, NDC didnt raise any issue and just forgot about this poor man. Even if Lusambo is summoned by the police, where is the evidence that he murdered the deceased?

    • A total of 13 Dockets were opened in Luanshya all concerning violent assaults occasioned on the opposition and perpetrated by known PF Cadres. Bowman Lusambo’s Docket was opened at Mpatamatu police station, and Lusamba was named in that docket!! A life has been lost and fellow Zambians want to play politics; wait until your own beloved people die at the hands of these tyrants, maybe you will realise then that this is serious.
      Political affiliations aside people, no one should ever play “God” by taking other’s lives. It’s criminal and against the Law throughout the world.

    • Malinso if you keep up to date with current affairs you’ll find that these atrocities were actually reported to Mpatamatu Police and up to now, no suspect has been apprehended or charged.

  5. 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.

    Just what does Lusambo think Zambians perceive him as?? Living in a World of folly is dangerous, if he could only walk the streets and ask the citizenry one-by-one what they think of him, he would probably commit suicide. After his reputation as a former violent MMD enforcer known and MMD Die Hard, to Minister who commits violent acts on the Grounds of Parliament… The Luanshya Incident is not an isolated case!! “Personal Character” my foot

  6. You are asking a government that hosts a Minister undergoing corruption charges to arrest Bowman Lusambo?
    Are you guys normal? You will have to wait until 2021 to get an arrest.

  7. “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.”

    Die Hard Youth, does he have any character to defame? Even the office that he holds, it’s a defamation of the office that he is the minister.

  8. Malinso – Avoid some of these names because you will start behaving like a Malinso. Time and again, it has been reported that this case is with the police long before the victim died. The names were submitted to the police in Luanshya a long time ago and the police have not acted. What else do you want? olo ni bu cadre. Just for once try to have a sense of shame especially where there is loss of life.

  9. Zambia Police really surprise me.Mr. Kasongo was assaulted on 11 April,2019 during Roan by-elections. The matter was reported to Mpatamatu Police Station,a docket was opened,one victim of this violent act has now died.What are police still waiting for to make an arrest ?And now this matter is in public domain and people are debating which will make police work on this matter really dicy. Ba Charity Katanga please this is a criminal case and not a political one.Your delay in taking action will complicate this matter and it will forever haunt you if not properly handled.

  11. ZAMBIA POLICE SHOULD SHOW US SOME PROFESSIONALISM, THIS ISSUE WILL NOT GO AWAY UNTIL THEY ACT DIVISIVELY, WE NEED TO START TRUSTING POLICE ONCE MORE. THESE DAYS IF YOU ARE WRONGED BY A CADRE FIND PLAN “B” OF SOLVING YOUR PROBLEM, GOING TO POLICE IS NOW BECOMING LIKE A WASTE OF TIME, IF POLICE IS NOT GOING TO SHOW US THAT THEY CAN BE TRUSTED WE SHALL FIND OTHER MEANS AND AT THE END OF THE DAY THIS COUNTRY WILL GRADUALLY RECEDE TO THE WILD WEST WHERE PEOPLE MOVED WITH GUNS IN HOLSTERS AND APPLIED JUSTICE THERE AND THEN, WE DO NOT WANT TO REACH THAT LEVEL PLEASE.

  13. Akafumba is a dull lawyer who cannot win a case because he knows what he should provide as evidence and the burden of proof is on himself to provide to the police… And the police have confirmed that the deceased reported the matter to Police where he said unknown people attacked him according to the docket opened…So the dull lawyer Akafumba should link the unknown persons to Chi Bowman Lusambo by providing that evidence… Lawyers should not play to the gallery of group think mentality…And why did Kambwili import the big youth from Lusaka to Roan he should be held accountable by the family, MHSRIP .

  14. Lungu can you fire bowman for now, this is not looking good, at least have some balls man, you can not have a minister in your government being accused of murder and you are seated with folded arms, grow some balls if you don’t have any.

    • Bane , stop thinking it is weakness preventing lungu from doing the right thing ……no , lungu is himself a master criminal and most of his inner circle are criminals.

      Lungu sees nothing wrong with working with drug dealers, thieves , murder suspects and petty criminals.

      The worst president Zambia has ever had and hopefully the last of his kind….

      There are some presidents who do not follow democracy to the letter but are performing well on the economy like kigame , and his people love him……now our lungu is a thief on top of being a hopless excuse of a president…..
