Police say No Permission has be given for Tomorrow’s Demonstrations as PF accuse HH of inciting Youths

Headlines Police say No Permission has be given for Tomorrow's Demonstrations as PF...

Acting Zambia Police spokesperson Danny Mwale has said that police have not received any notification concerning the planned demonstration which is said to be scheduled for tomorrow.

Responding a query about reports rumours of a planned demonstration tomorrow, Mr. Mwale has advised those planning to demonstrate not to go ahead as procedure has not been followed and that those that will go ahead with the demonstrations will be dealt with accordingly.

Meanwile, UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has been advised not to parade and incite other people’s children to protest while he sits in the comfort of his home.

Patriotic Front deputy media director Antonio Mwanza says it is irresponsible for the UPND leader to put other people’s children in harms way when he can never allow his own children to protest.

“Mr Hichilema has grown up children who are themselves youths and i challenge him to send them to the frontline to protest also rather than inciting other people’s children to protest while his children are comfortably enjoying themselves in the comfort of his home” Mr Mwanza said.

Mr Mwanza who was commenting on tomorrow’s planned protest by youths said freedom of expression has to come with responsibility and advised youths not to allow themselves to be used as political pawns to champion agendas that risk the country’s peace or border on conduct likely to breach peace.

Minister of Home Affairs, Hon Stephen Kampyongo has said the protest march scheduled for this week has not been approved by the Police or his office.

Mr Mwanza has asked Mr Hichilema to mention how many orphans and widows he has helped after putting the lives and security of their fathers and husbands at risk to champion his agenda of inciting the public.

“Where are the orphans and widows of those whose lives have been harmed championing Mr. Hichilema’s agendas. Does he even know what these families are going through in the absence of their bread winners? He is quick to use and abuse the names of the departed for political gain but he has never taken time even to check on how these families are surviving. That is very hypocritical of him as a leader” Mwanza has charged

  1. Instead of always finding somebody to blame first do a self introspection you’ll find that your statement isn’t making any sense at all. Notlong ago some people whom we don’t doubt were sponsored by PF were allowed to demonstrate and petition the Speaker even when they know that Matibini doesn’t pass Bills in Parliament. Now Zambians with another view want to exercise the same right you accuse them of being sponsored? Antonio you’re too young for this kind of idyocy. You’ve a future ahead of you, you can’t thrive through the betrayal of others. What didn’t Nawakwi give you? Those in are too naive to realize that you’ll do exactly what you did to FDD when the hour of reckoning dawns upon PF. PF is in self-destruction mode

  2. Lusaka Times, I still have a bit of respect for you but I think you have a bias towards and against certain people. This story was about police and youths but a word count and analysis suggests that mwanza is the main character. Please avoid using your platform as Mwanza’ mouthpiece.

  3. The question is why have you denied the youths their right to protest peacefully? They have issues that need to be addressed yet you as PF have been ignoring and stepping down on. Why is the PF afraid of the youths protest. Why is the reason for the protests by the youths always blamed on HH? HH’S children have nothing to complain or protest about their futures are well secured by their parents, but for others who do something themselves to live have an issue with government who should be doing their job to secure a good economy for the youths to thrive but are not doing so but would rather prioritize bill 10 first instead. HH is not government, that is the reason the PF has failed so much because they are fixated on HH rather than the important affairs of the country.

  4. These PF cowards will never give you that permission which is not even required under the constitution but ZP will cite security concerns even on a Sunday …at times we have to sacrifice a little to be heard like us youths of yesterday. The problem with us Zambians is we are docile during the gassing debacle they shot pupils and we let it go…to date we dont even know what the gassing was about when 50 people were murdered.

  5. Its funny how people forget with a bit of change in their pocket …this boy Tony Mwanza was UNZA Student President and he is spewing this nonsense…some people will have a lonely existence when PF is kicked out.

  6. I think a hypocrite is you Mwanza because you are accusing HH without evidence. If HH is behind it and you have evidence why are U afraid of confronting him? Police’s job is to enforce the law not to give false information to the public. And if HH is behind it, what is wrong about that? Is a peaceful protest wrong? Or have U become judges of the future? No one has told you will conduct harmful protest these people told you they come in peace. Police U are cowards these days, U are not doing your jobs U are following PF’s silencing strategy.

  7. Kamo nga nibo!

    The ruling elite do not not any permit to protest. Just last week some disoriented Street adults were carrying placards against their nemesis in apparent support of the archaic Bill 10. Seems each time they think of him they have severe nightmares!! Your nightmares are only beginning; the peak is yet to come as we approach the Second Thursday of August, 2021

  8. This government is nauseating. Zambia is a controlling society like North Korea, where the flow of information is controlled. We have unscrupulous leaders who distract, divert,
    and derail other people’s critical thinking so that they can maintain their power and control. This is exactly what the police is doing currently. They do not allow other people to express their feelings, but allow Lungu and company to campaign perpetually. What a shame? Are police office so stupid that they are always manipulated like retards? We need police officers who use critical thinking in their daily lives, not Kanganja and company. The police is there to protect people . Instead, what we have are grown-up people who dance to Kampyongo and Lungu. Really? Demonstrating can lead to punishment in Zambia? It…

  10. What has education done to us? It is difficult to believe that we are not free to ask challenging questions, and search for the truth. Those in authority are determined to suppress citizens, withhold information and distort the truth using the police in a controlling society like Zambia. No wonder we have folks like Mwanza who do not know why they are on earth. They cannot something meaningful to do apart from associating and defending dictators in order to survive. It is very pathetic.

  12. “……while his children are comfortably enjoying themselves in the comfort of his home” Mr Mwanza said….”

    That is the point , you dim wit. Hachilems children sit conftably at home with 5 meals a day and don’t need to work,

    It is the majority of zambisn youths who want to protest becsuse they have nothing, no jobs, no prospects , no meals ……that is why they want to protest.

    Hachilems children have everything , why should they protest ??????

    You mean youths country wide are as gullible as you are such that they can
    easily persuaded to believe something credulous like you have done.

  18. This is not a jungle. Every country has rules and laws that need to be followed. You cannot just wake up and decide or expect your protest to go ahead. There are lots of security factors, and now even health ones, to be considered before large crowds can be allowed to assemble. There is nothing sinister about this. As for those claiming I am rigging elections in Malawi please provide the evidence, otherwise you are just wasting your bundles

  19. Let’s allow our youths to open up and express themselves freely, we should also not prescribe ways of expressing themselves which suit you not them, like the PAf nonse.nse of saying they should follow channels, what channels? They dont want your channels and that cannot be a crime. If you stop citizens from expressing themselves they tend to store angry bottled up feelings until they explode, then you will see yourselves shooting at your own citizens like it was during apartheid. We don’t want that in our beautiful country.

  20. As for Antonio Mwanza what a disgraceful youth!! Saying things that you dont really believe in must be the most painful job on earth. I dont think the boy sleeps well at night, cant enjoy peace of mind.

  21. QUOTE:”Where are the orphans and widows of those whose lives have been harmed championing Mr. Hichilema’s agendas. Does he even know what these families are going through in the absence of their bread winners?

    THE QUESTION HE SHOULD BE ASKED IS WHO HARMED THEM, WHY AND FOR WHAT?

  22. And PAf youths in Lusaka have been ordered by Paul monger to attack the youths who want to protest, well do they have a police permit? What have their topmost leaders said about violence among their youths? Now there is deafening silence from the same bosses.
    What a way to lose power ba PAf, spending your time fighting and threatening to harm your own citizens? Spending sleepless nights wondering whether you still have support….oh my Jesus!!

  23. There are currently no “channels” to follow in Zambia under this corrupt and totalitarian wannabe PF leadership. A few weeks ago, some youth went to the police to seek a permit to hold peaceful protests. Instead, they got arrested. Only in Zambia can fooolishness like that happen. This clown Mwanza knows that even if the youth tried to obtain a police permit, they’ll not be given at all. What these PF foools don’t understand is that when people are desperate, angry and hungry, they don’t care whether you arrest them or not. PF, your days are numbered. You don’t have anything to offer Zambia or the youth, except corruption, misery, hunger, poverty, mediocrity and hopelessness. You’re worse, and even more dangerous, than COVID -19. Come next year, we the Zambian people will vote…

  24. … you out, and throw your behinds in prison for your rampant corruption. We’ll make sure you don’t rig the election this time. We’ll also make sure that we retrieve all the Zambian people’s assets that you’ve stolen. The borders will be closed. You can’t escape or hide anywhere in Zambia. We’ll arrest you and jail you for a 150 years each for all the corruption you’ve inflicted on the innocent Zambian people. Ethiopia arrested close to 59 government officials, mainly from the previous administration, for corruption and economic sabotage. If Ethiopia can do it, we can do it too. You’re going to prison, come next year.

  25. In a civilisation, this is simple. You allow the demonstration with police escort and approved routes. In fact, that’s what the Public Order Act alludes to. It’s not about getting permission. It’s only notification. But for authoritative regimes with so much to hide, they will use all sorts of stu.pid arguments to prevent rightful expression of freedoms and assembly. With so many skeletons now exposed, the PF literally has no where to hide, hence the draconian measures and control of the police for survival. Time is up for this tiresome tattered regime.
