HH arriving at Lusaka Central Prison to visit Dr Kambwili

Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema on Thursday afternoon visited incarcerated opposition politician Chishimba Kambwili at Lusaka Central Prison.

Mr Hichilema has since demanded that Dr. Kambwili be granted Police bond with immediate effect following his arrest yesterday.

Mr. Kambwili who was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly defaming President Edgar Lungu and has been denied police bond.

“Took time to visit our brother Dr Chishimba Kambwili who is detained at Lusaka Central police on flimsy charges. We encouraged our brother to remain strong and that we stand with him and will continue to do so in good or bad times,” Mr Hichilema said.

“There are so many PF corrupt thieves out there who deserve to be in jail as opposed to people calling for restoration of normalcy in the country,” he said.

“We demand for his immediate release from detention. Our brother has assured us that he will remain strong and not be broken.”

He added, “When in government, we will not waste time and resources arresting citizens who will be holding divergent, views. There are those who don’t agree with us, insult and call us names but we don’t pay attention to their ridicule. Our preoccupation is to take over government and run the country better in order for citizens to be able to afford three meals a day.”

  1. You imbeciles cannot continue defaming the president who is even older and always expect to get away with it. I am bemba and tonga. Lock the bastard because he has been insulting the president ever since he was dropped.

    • You can’t think of anything more intelligent to say. It reflects poorly on you for making that comment.

    • PF leave Kambwili alone and ignore him. He has nothing to offer as a politician but merely a useless Hot-Air, volcanic uproar.

      He actually is using this to make himself important and get attention. So don’t give him the fight but ignore him. And he will die a silent death in politics.

    • In time past, Kambwili could have been called ICINKULA. Any way that’s the way he has lived all his life…very abusive…very rude.

    • There is no democracy that criminalises defamation of the President. A president who feels Insulted must bring civil charges not get the police force to run after his alleged defamers. Even a president who allows such a law is a wimp.
      Why does a president feel he has to be protected by law from criticism? It’s only in dictatorships that presidents demand respect by law. A democratic president commands respect by his work. In a democracy a president isn’t any different from the public he leads.

    • Meanwhile it’s nonsense coming from double h.
      Is defamation bailable or bondable?
      Otherwise, comments reserved.

    • Normal people, who watched the the said video, there’s no mention of of anybody’s president name. Wonder which video they watched. Our President HH, you have done better for visiting and giving courage to your young brother. KEEP THE SPRIRIT BURNING, IN YOU AND YOUR BROTHER CK, ZAMBIA SHALL BE LEBARATED OF THE PIRATES AND BE FREE. We’ve the independence but need the freedom.

    • He added, “When in government ……”
      BUT THAT IS THE PROBLEM.
      HH WILL NEVER RULE IN ZAMBIA.
      ZAMBIANS WILL NEVER ALLOW A RABID TRIBALIST LIKE HH TO BE IN STATE HOUSE/
      HE WILL REMAIN LIFE PRESIDENT OF UPND ONLY

    • Defamation law on a president is only enforced in backward countries like Zambia. Imagine howe many people would be in American jails for defaming Trump. But we have so many backward Zambians as evidenced by comments above.

    • Our fellow politicians who are hungry of powe…are confusing us…what kind of autocritics that give you access to insult the Head of the state? All those who are supporting such absodity need be put in jail…bcz they don’t follow democracy… which freedom of speech can lead you insult and move around in boasting about it? Is this the way our opposition leaders are going also to be treated once elected and take normal ? Malabishi shame on zambians who are condemning the police.. good day…

    • Well! Well! Well! Living in a curve where you see your own shadows as reality. When will we zambians know exactly what can be good for our country to stand the taste of time? Right now, British colonialism is better than**********

    • It’s very unfortunate that you don’t understand a thing about what’s going on. Don’t be afraid to think, just doit you then come to a conclusion. All the best in your thinking.

  2. This is just Persecution of CK thru Prosecution by the Lungu Regime. CK didn’t mention the name of the Dog from Chawama so there is no Case here. The Name “President EC Lungu is not mentioned. The “Dog from Chawama”is not mentioned by “Name” so there is no Proof that the Dog CK referred to is ECL. This is just harassment and persecution of an innocent Man by a Dictatorship in Zambia.

    • Sekunjalo…expecting to be insulted comes with the nature of the job. If you don’t want to be insulted, don’t run for political office. It’s that simple. There’s what’s called freedom of speech. You ignoramus.

    • Every regime that has ever ruled Zambia is a wrong government.lt has an evil tag on it so we say.. But looking on the statistics of development, the PF government has done a tremendous job.Unifortunely, like one professor said we Africans think that development is a knife through butter, problem comes and go the worst thing one can do is to change governments like clothes..it is through labour and painful effort by grim energy and resolate courage that we move on to better things.There is too much politiking,a worrying occupation.

  7. Look at the picture, look at Gary Nkombo, look at his excited face, if they were not walking he would be kneeling and paying homage to HH.

    And look at HH, is that a face of presidency? NO. Ati HH demanded this demanded that, the guy’s is always demanding but no one pays any attention. Just a few weeks ago he demanded and gave a two week ultimatum, he has forgotten about it together with his sleeping headless disciples who cant think for themselves. Yaba! This world!!

  9. “When in government, we will not waste time and resources arresting citizens who will be holding divergent, views. There are those who don’t agree with us, insult and call us names but we don’t pay attention”
    But sir already Zambians hold divergent views by refusing to vote for you as a president more than 4 times. Why cant you give opportunity to others to lead the UPND? ???
    or you will change when you get into state house????? just asking

  10. Birds of a feather, both jail birds and both corrupt otherwise what else links them?

    Oh sori I forgot, both empty mouths, both fake news purveyors, both power hungry and the last is what will tear them apart in 2021, with the fat one left with no choice by HH but forced to rejoin the corrupt PF. All these politicians are corrupt be they in the ruling party or the opposition party, with the opposition “can’t wait to lay my hands on the loot when I become President or when I become minister.”. Except our future leader 2021 whom we shall name and whom ALL Zambians shall embrace instantly.
    HH go and rest, your time is gone, the other one can tour the world all he wants. ..hahahahahahehehehe

  11. EVERY NORMAL PERSON WILL BE DISAPPOINTED TO SEE HH SUPPORTING CK WHO CALLED PRESIDENT DR ECL AS A DOG FROM CHAWAMA. HH CALL THE DEFAMATION CHARGES FLIMSY. SUPPOSE SOME PEOPLE CALL HH AS A DOG FROM DUNDUMWEZE, WOULD HE AND HIS SUPPORTERS BE HAPPY? THE WORDS IN THE VIDEO ARE VERY CLEAR. CK WENT ON TO SAY: HE HAS EVEN PUT KAMPYONGO AS HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER. SO IS IT NOT PRESIDENT DR ECL WHO APPOINTED CK?

    NORMAL PEOPLE WILL BE DISAPPOINTED IF CK IS NOT JAILED AND SENT TO CORRECTIONAL CENTRES. THE SOBER AND SOFT SPOKEN CORRECTIONAL DEPARTMENT COMMISSIONER GENERAL CHILESHE WILL DEFINITELY CORRECT CK’S WARPED MIND, WHICH KNOWS NOTHING BUT INSULTS. LET HIM BE LOCKED UP.

  12. It is wrong to arrest Dr Kambwili for perceived defamation of the president because he didn’t mention any name or any one in particular.Nevertheless,we all know that Dr Kambwili was referring to the president when he uttered those words.The man is a father,grandfather,uncle etc he should learn to use good language even when aggrieved.He should be a role model to us who aspire to be politicians one day.He should know that not everything our minds conceive should be said.

  13. My view this morning is that what the man did was wrong let’s learn to respect our leaders and that’s the beginning of peace and development not just were we wake up each morning thinking of insulting our leader.

  16. HH and Kambwili should not be allowed to campaign in Chawama since the people who live there are dogs according to these two dudes… If HH won an election in 2026 and someone implied he was a dog including the people that would have voted him…how would he feel including his supporters … If an honest answer could be given then they would know how those who support the President are feeling…Take it or leave it…
