Justice Minister Given Lubinda attending the National Dialogue Forum
Justice Minister Given Lubinda attending the National Dialogue Forum

Muvi TV Journalist Kalani Muchima has been summoned to by the Zambia Police Service for questioning.

He is due to present himself at the Zambia Police Service Headquarters Thursday morning.

Ok Sunday, PF Media Director Sunday Chanda urged the Police to “take particular interest “ in the manner in which Muchima reported the matter.

Mr Chanda contended that some aspects of Mr Muchima’s news report contained his own opinions meant to incite the public against Mr Lubinda.

Meanwhile, the case of the five people arrested in connection with the assault on Mr Lubinda took off in the Lusaka Magistrate Court on Wednesday.

The five were arrested on Monday and charged with assault on Mr. Lubinda which happened at Kabwata Market on Friday.

The five accused are Martin Mambwe Kankonje, Patrick Chanda, Moses Mulenga, Goodness Mwange and Major Chanda and they all pleaded not guilty.

Kankonje has been charged with the offence of assault occasioning actual bodily while the other four have been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony.

  1. Name one media in this world that does not give its own view on a matter. All news is based on what the reporter has deduced from the facts around him. Africans are too immature for democracy. My Swiss wife has always said this and I argued with her. Now I have swallowed pride and agreed with her. We had best love making last night. I need agreed with her more

    • Lubinda is on record in that interview saying that no one had beaten him. So why are you arresting innocent people?

    • Arresting him for telling lies. Muvi and prime tv are cut from the same cloth. In Mufulira fake news from a community radio station caused a riot resulting in the burning of a police post and the escape of detainees. I Rwanda fake reporting resulted in the genocide. Lying journalists should be hang by the balls.

    • Please leave the reporter alone, he was only doing his job, conveying what he saw, there was nothing inciting in that report for any sane person to issue a call out

    • I remember when Ntani was reporting on Tunnels at State House.
      Our minds were fresh, and we thought it was a such a huge crime.
      Same like Sunday his minds is still such childish.
      Boyi Sunday grow up, natulukula.
      It is not big deal for Lubinda, he said himself that he gotta no issue with those PF Cadres.

    • The world’s worst police force is in Zambia. In a democracy the lapdog police gets ordered by the ruling party official and they obey.
      When Kambwili asked them to arrest Lusambo for assaulting him they did nothing these toothless bulldogs

    • Let the Police just arrest this IRRITATING Kalan Muchima chap inciting violence against the Minister of Justice. t’s only in Zambia where a self-confessed UPND carder can be allowed to masquerade as a ‘new reporter’!! In fact the so-called IBA should sanction MUVI TV for allowing this kind of malicious/ nonobjective/ unprofessional/ primitive journalism.

      At least Prime TV restored a bit of its credibility by chasing this Kalan chap. Honestly how has some sections of the media in Zambia been allowed to deteriorate to such levels?? Appalling indeed!!

  3. But I agree with the “Bemba” thugs who beat up one “Real” basta.rd Given Lubinda, that doesn’t even know his REAL biological father!! These PF “Thugs” (I call them revolutionaries) are doing Zambians a very good and INCREDIBLY important favour and should be commended for bringing the “bas.tard” down to earth! Lubinda had become so too pompous and arrogant especially after that failed NDF conference BUT these uneducated and uncelebrated heroes of ours have taught Chibinda a good lesson.
    And the PF SG Davies should also be commended for pulling off the rug underneath Lubinda by dismissing Lubinda’s foolish draft constitution changes on Deputy Minsters and The Coalition; effectively throwing the Bas.tard to the Woolves to eat Chibinda Alive! I have no sympathy for that st.upid…

  4. Hehehehe……really laughable just because it involves a senior government official. Every crime has to be reported by the media and to the police. What kind of country have we become? During the funeral of late UNZA student Vespers, Dora Siliya was openly booed and insulted in full view of both media and public but no one was summoned by police

  5. So many innocent unsuspecting citizens have been attacked by PF things and no one has been arrested, but today they beat up Lubinda and they are traced in no time and taken to court. Even in a case where there is a murder the Police have not arrested anyone. Today we see that Police can only work when they want to and not when duty demands. This is sad

  6. PF was a bad experiment.

    This lubinda was a once a humble man of the people. Today he feels like a president of the most powerful country on earth. He has forgotten we gave him the power he is abusing.

    Look at how kambwili abused his powers. Today its the same membes mast giving CK favourable coverage.

    Once lubinda goes back on the street znbc will have no business with him.

  7. Congratulations to the “Bemba” thugs who beat up one “Real” basta.rd Given Lubinda, that doesn’t even know his REAL biological father; and to the PF SG Davies who rejected Lubinda’s retrogressive proposed constitutional changes at the NDF conference! These are 2 INCREDIBLY important favours that have brought Lubinda down to earth. He had become so too pompous and arrogant BUT he now knows he is going our politically and there is no coming back!

  8. This is donchi kubeba govt..

    Its ONLY now that read boz reserved is $1.4b just enough to cover one import s.

    Even foreign has been kept as secret and left to speculation

    We didn’t even know that NDF was a constitution amendment forum.

    PF was formed to deceive, cheat, loot and misinform followers.

    But cadres have now realised PF is a fraud

  10. When jack Johnson , a black mam beat jim Jeffrey in a heavy weight belt there was racial riot across USA in 1910

    Whites couldn’t believe that a Blackman could beat a white man. And the whites didn’t like the media broadcast

    Thats whats happening in PF. They created the beating squad like a sport. And they dont want media broadcaster s

  12. BTW, what happened to the Thugs who were threatening violence and insulting Chishimba Kambwili in the video which went viral just after the Roan Elections?

  13. Instead of Sunday Chanda wasting time on such matters, shouldn’t he be asking himself why each time there is a vacancy he is left out? Shouldn’t you have been the newly appointed minister after all the talking you have been doing? Quantity is not the same as quality

  14. LEFT WONDERING AS TO WHY SUNDAY CHANDA SHOULD BE GIVING INSTRUCTIONS TO THE POLICE.
    THE MEDIA IS THEIR TO INFORM,EDUCATE AND ENTERTAIN AND KALANI MUCHIMA WAS JUST INFORM THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE WHAT HAPPENED TO HON GL.
    THESE PF POLICE IS VERY DULL INDEED.
    DEAL WITH THE PF CADRES AND LEAVE THE JOURNALIST ALONE.
    HE WAS JUST DOING HIS JOB PERIOD.

  16. Whether you like Lubinda or ot, it’s not the matter here! What these thugs did was pure rabid animal behaviour. And I doubt that had Lubinda been named Mwamba, Zulu or Mutubile/a, these Central African baboons would not have descended on him. These rabid fossils are disgusting and need to be put down.

    • This Stone age Mposa Mabwe’ violence is a P.F’s creation.
      They use Cadres to brutalise, those who oppose their misrule, or expose the thieving in Government, BUT when it’s not involving P.F it’s NOT violence.
      Remember the Woman who was undressed in full view of Ba kote Inonge, Mapenzi, Vespers, the mourner who had his hand hacked off by P. F Goons, Chimpyongo led Shiwan’gandu Helicopter t3rrorism x2, & guy allegedly struck with iron bars by Bowman until he expired?
      NEVER DID I HEAR A PEEP FROM JONA CHAKOLWA, OR GIVEN ZA -YELLO!!
      So ndate’ this is what P.F wants, & for sure P.F are now getting. ENJOY!!

  17. I saw the video and I thought it amounted to harassment. I am not a journalist but I couldn’t help but think that he was over the top with his reporting. Arresting him on the other hand would be a step too far.

  18. Muvi owner must be very dull to employ Prime TV’s vomit that caused its closing. Do you need rocket science to deduce your own media station’s downfall with crooked chaps with strong ties to Akainde who incites the public via his useless opinions.

  22. How can you say “Mr Muchima’s news report contained his own opinions meant to incite the public against Mr Lubinda” when, you, yourself, Sunday Chanda, always say things to incite citizens against Kambwili, HH, and other Opposition party members?
    I hope the Police will professionally deal with the whims of this PF “squirrel” (remember the Animal Farm spokesperson?) who has a passionate hatred for objectivity. INDEED A CERTIFIED LIAR HE IS, as hE has been portrayed in some media platforms.
