President Edgar Lungu proposing a toast to KK.
President Edgar Lungu proposing a toast to KK.

The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) has noted a statement being circulated by GEARS Executive Director MacDonald Chpenzi, allegedly issued by a group of boys, led by Wilfred Chilufya and some Chibomba, purporting to be members of the Young African Leaders Initiative in Zambia.

In the statement, they strongly suggest in the first paragraph that there was a drug-related case in the United States of America involving the head of State. This statement is irresponsible and part of the continued scheme by those who are laboring to link the Head of State to some imaginary drug-related cases in the US.

We want to be clear that the issuance of such a statement under the Young African Leaders Initiative by those boys is criminal as the Registrar made it clear during a meeting attended by ourselves and those boys that the Zambian laws only recognize one Young African Leaders Initiative led by Mr. Ntewewe and its membership is well defined.

We, therefore, find the conduct of those boys criminal in trying to illegally operate in Zambia or anywhere in SADC without official recognition. We shall rake up this matter with the Registrar at PACRA and the Minister of Home Affairs.

However, what concerns us is that these boys are now being used to try and make suggestions of an imaginary drug-related case but also making the reference of the same to the Head of State.

Again, we restate our position that YALI believes the dangerous politics where people with business interests are using an opposition leader to paint the Head of State in imaginary drug-related matters is lacking patriotism and act of opportunism.

    • And people try to accuse Laura, Linda etc of being sponsored by politicians! I mean just look at this “statement” referring to people as “boys”! What reputable NGO would do that?
      Even just the English is not at all inspiring.
      But secondly how is an NGO be so concerned about defending Findlay? And why are they twisting statements? Who linked Lungu to drug trafficking in the US? Its actually them now who are doing it.
      Mr Ntewewe and friends, I encourage you to just stop. This path you have taken does not end well for you. Its not only the nation that will suffer, but you will also face consequence in some shape or other.

    • Maybe he is as clear as possible. Boys are boys. U want him to say men when boys are boys. Real men dont make weird allegations. What I love about yali is they ve a way of doing things own way since olden times. Was yali built by being same with Laura? No. Yali has defended people before even during Sata and RB time. Did we have a problem? No

  2. Chester sang “mwe Lesa chinjeni abanandi” some 10 months ago.
    We were saying that the song is directed at Ba Edgar.
    He builds, but his friends are destroying…
    It is just so sad that you YALI are still childish, you can’t get it.
    If Ba Edgar had cleaned out those trashy employees and friends, there couldn’t have no drug dealer on his plane.

    • There is a drug case in the USA v a certain Goswane and 2 other Indian brothers.

      Findley is a known associate of goswane.

      That is where the findley connection comes in. Zambia is a known place for drug trafficking.

      Now if Some one mentioned in a high profile drug case is always riding in the presidential jet with the president , what do you think people will conclude ??????

  7. But Lungu’s fraternizations with well known drug barons implicated in current Goswami court cases in the Southern District of New York mean he isn’t constrained by the quantum constitutional guardrails of his oath of office. The US must arrest Lungu like they did Manuel Noriega

  8. Yes , the USA should suspect lungu of peddling drugs knowingly or unknowingly in a ZAF jet………

    A person who rides with in that jet is being mentioned in high profile drug cases…..

  9. Seems lungu does not care about the character or reputations of his associates.

    As president , a person who young Zambians look up to, there should be some lines drawn. Morals and integrity codes to uphold.

    Not with lungu.

  12. Some businessmen are well known for their notoriety, even I would be embarrassed even to be seen sharing a drink with them. That is just me, common me, but the standards should be much higher for leaders.

  13. Sometimes when you are eating from dirty sources it’s best to just keep quiet and enjoy in silence. However we understand that one of the terms of pf funding is that you open your mouth uncontrollably to defend pf at all costs. A pure lack of integrity. And these are meant to be future leaders? I pity this generation. You guys are doomed to say the least. And you want me and my white wife to move back to Zambia under such clowns

  16. YALI you wrong. He has put himself in this mess. Show me your friend and I will know who you are. ECL the friend is a drug dealer. Y does Findlay get VVIP treatment by cabnet office? Y did Findlay found himself in between Prince Harry and ECL in foto? Let ECL himself tell the nation over Findlay. Was Findlay elected by citizens of Z? The DEA of america is not comromising as our DEC, chasing whistle blower leaving a drug dealer. the americans are coming wait. So YALI if u have nothing to wafle stay put.
