Chishimba Kambwili and NDC officials in the office of the Officer in Charge at Kitwe Central Police Station

Opposition NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili was on Saturday evening detained in Kitwe and later charged with an offence of conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

This was after Mr Kambwili and his entourage passed through Kitwe’s Chisokone market to buy dry fish for his home.

The visit attracted a lot of people especially women Marketeers who wanted to greet Mr Kambwili.

This infuriated PF cadres at the market who organized themselves and almost picked up a fight with Mr Kambwili’s entourage.

Mr Kambwili was picked up from his room at Lunte Lodge after he returned from holding a rally in Kwacha.

After many hours of detention at Kitwe Central Police Station, Mr Kambwili was released from police custody around 21 Hours after paying admission of guilty fine.

He vowed that no form of intimidation will make him stop talking on behalf of the downtrodden.

    • Why shouldnt Kambwili go to the market? If Fashion Sakala or Patson Daka went to the market and he is mobed by people, would he be arrested. The pf police should grow up and do some serious work. There are ritual killings in kitwe as we speak.

    • So what is wrong with him going to the market you want him to stop eating PF are just scared they know their time is up the best thing they can do is to start parking their luggage early.

    • Kambwili is just tasting his own medicine. He was spokesman when this was being done to others, so this is fair game. They should have made him sleep over

    • How much is mealie meal today?

      Is load shedding a normal thing to you & the violent & visionless PF bandits?

      What about the economy, how is it performing under the visionless & violent PF bandits?

      Why is the PF failing to pay civil servants & others their own salaries on time?

      Is it normal to wait for your hard work payments for over half a year?

      By the way, have people even eaten a single meal a day under this ruthless, corrupt PF banditry hoodlums?

    • There were 2 political rallies in Kitwe, 1 addressed by Kambwili in Kapoto and the other by Hichilema in Racecourse. Suppose Hichilema decided to also buy lusala from Chisokone? Was Kambwili happy with the commotion that he caused? He lacks wisdom. Thanks Hichilema for being mature this time around

    • The police need to be more honest. They should have told Kambwili “Look we are arresting you for being more popular than the President. At that market of course”

    • Two points.

      1. “…around 21 Hours after paying admission of guilty fine.”
      2. “He vowed that no form of intimidation will make him stop talking on behalf of the downtrodden”
      Man, I don’t know but this sounds like Kashimba Chimbwili was not at the market for the normal thing.
      The two points indicate that Kashimba was testing the Public Order Act.
      To sum it up all, what guilt did Chimbwili admit to for him to pay that fine?

  2. Is it that Dr Kambwili is so fat that he can’t sit straight in a sofa, he has to lie down? Well, then if he is aspiring to be the next Edgar in 2021 he better slim down.

  3. Alick , who donot know that PF and Lungu my brother has been campaigning all his term in office after the so called winning of the 2016 elections which matter has not fully resolved at all, with all the so called working visits all campaign gimmicks, we understand better these things . But he continues to be unpopular every day due to his failure to provide the much needed leadership ,vision and direction to this country. Worse more wants to change the constitution wrongly ,including making sure the opposition only have 30days for campaigns , while him and his Ministers are campaigning .Also that this an indirect third so to us the patriots he does even qualify and should be assured that kuyabele.

    we have spoken what this Bill 10means ,but he continues to be adamant , as he did when…

    • Why is the president campaigning then? Visiting all corners of the country is his constitutional mandate but he holds rallies!
      Mr Mwila too is campaigning all of the country. Why shouldn’t others mobilize? Which law prohibits mobilizing? The late president Mr Sata campaigned non stop after loosing to Former President Banda. No one stopped him. What is good for you surely should be good others, No? Mr Kambwili today is crying foul, really? Why didn’t they change this when they had a chance in Government?

  5. Forecast that’s his country also so he can visit the market anytime he wants. You pf cadres think this country is yours alone no wonder you grab land that’s not yours and take money meant for the councils. Your are worse off than the colonizers, jealous is going to kill you. You cannot be campaigning and donating alone, let others do the same also which l think will put you on your toes because right now you too comfortable while kitwe spirals down the road with gangs, corruption and bad infrastructure

  6. Voting for pf is like going back to your black zambian ex girlfriend who was a leach and dishonest gold digger, when you have a beautiful successful whlte wlfe like mine. It just doesn’t make sense x

  7. Edgar lungu is campaigning in Eastern province under the guise of seeing so called developmental projects. In fact he’s been in campaign mode since 2016. This is more reason he has failed to mitigate the Loadsheding. Politically he’s got ideas but economically next to zero

  8. There can only be one MCS I recall he caused a city to standstill when he stopped at the roadside when the police “arrested” him he claimed he wasn’t campaigning but had stopped to cross the road to buy some groundnuts. Later he refused to yield to allow the then Vice President late George motorcade and thus began the surge. CK must have admired the man to try and replicate his tactics sadly he ck is not leadership material he is good for rousing crowds even hh had more people at his gathering tells much but 21 is coming bring it on

  9. Ati Dr? Kambwili, Kwena pa Zed that is why it will take a long time to develop. Our standards are so low that even loud mouth are consideredas educated. Just for being loud mouth and buying fake degrees. The followers do not even know what those purchased degrees mean.

  12. One thing we should know is that government is you and that it takes you to think big and come up with developmental projects which will supplement government efforts. Replacing President Edgar Lungu with another person will not be the best solution, the solution is you , what have you done which will tell a story of your legacy. There is need for us to work hard so that we contribute towards government efforts. We need to change our mind set. Our generation is to much of dependance and folding arms, in the early 80s people use to work hard they use to remember there villages and farm, no much time to watch a movie, and government then UNIP was tough and that even keeping a dog at home we use to pay revenue for it but now it is free, trade freely and you can purchase a property and no…
