State House advises Citizens and the media to allow due process of diplomacy to take its course on the Rwanda Case

General News State House advises Citizens and the media to allow due process...

State House has expressed concern that despite stating its position on allegations purported to have come out of a court trial in Rwanda, some citizens have continued to issue wild speculations and accusations on the matter.

The State house has maintained that the allegations are purported to have been submitted to a Rwandan are false.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Isaac Chipampe says the Zambian government is dealing with the matter through the diplomatic channels with Rwanda.

Mr Chipampe has since advised Citizens including the media to allow the due process of diplomacy to take its course without any speculation and further unwanted speculation.

On Tuesday, State House is concerned with reports in the media of alleged submission made to Rwanda’s High Court for International and Cross Boarder crimes that President Lungu allegedly provided financial resources to a named Rwandan Organisation to launch attacks in that country.

Presidential spokesperson Isaac Chipampe refuted the claims saying the allegations are false and must be treated with the contempt they deserve.

Mr Chipampe said in a statement that the Governments and the people of the two countries continue to enjoy strong and fraternal relations founded on mutual respect and a common purpose based on shared values and principles.

  2. But mudala uyu has turned into a typical PFool. Chipampe you were there first to come out with an erection of denying statement. We were so disappointed in you, and advised you to shut-de-fvck up, and leave it to incompetent Malanji
    Now over turn with your tail between your balls, to repeat what we advised. That Rwanda story was by former employees; Kaizer, Amos, Chabanama, Findlay.
    Just resign man, leave that place, go get a job in Kigali.

    Who would trust a GRZ that gassed its own people , leading to mass murder and they remain silent on this Grave issue ???

  5. Chipampe and your friends are a big let down. You should have been advising bamudala to avoid associations with individuals of questionable character. Unless ba mudala is stubborn to take your advice, some of the photos he has taken with individuals with international criminal reputations are worrying. He may not have done anything wrong but because of keeping bad company, his name can easily be used for criminal purposes. That’s why you should listen to everybody including the opposition. When people criticize you, it does not mean they hate you. Whatever you say now is irrelevant because citizens want answers about your dark dealings especially with FIC report revelations of transactions linked to terrorism.

  7. Its very annoying to learn that a bankrupt Zambia with unsustainable debt levels can afford to sponsor Mercenaries to fight a foreign African Govt and also run two Presidential Planes, a Challenger Plane and a Gulfstream 650 Plane. With this level of profligacy or wastefulness does this ECL Govt seriously expect Concessionary financing from IMF and other IFIs? This Govt is a joke to say the least.

  9. Mwine Mushi – that bus of stating that Laxy Lungu is surrounded by bad advisers is long gone, he is not a child…the man has always been a let down everytime he picks up the microphone. PF just need to find a suitable candidate for 2021.

  10. How come these Rwandan Rebels singled out ECL the President of Zambia alone? U can hide the Fire but u can’t hide the smoke. How is that a poor country like Zambia can afford to run two Presidential Planes? This is scandalous and wastefulness. With this wastefulness Zambia can forget about getting money from the likes of IMF. Why does Zambia need two Presidential Planes? More questions than answers!

  12. THERE IS A PATTERN THAT HAS EMERGED IN THE PF WHICH IS BEGINNING TO MIRROR THAT OF TERRORIST ZANU-PF IN DYSFUNCTIONAL ZIMBABWE – BUTCHERING CITIZENS, CORRUPTION, NEPOTISM…, BECAUSE PERPETRATORS OF THESE CRIMES HAVE GONE SCOT FREE, THEY HAVE GONE TO COMMIT WORST THINGS.
    SO LET A TRUSTED INDEPENDENT BODY SUCH AS THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT DEAL WITH THE ISSUE IF YOU ARE INNOCENT IT WILL PROVED. OTHERWISE THE TRUTH WILL NOT COME OUT, THOSE INVOLVED WILL GO ON TO COMMIT WORSE CRIMES.

  13. But hw do u minister to the wicked so that they repent if u don’t walk with them? For Lungu to clear his name, Rwanda will demand certain evidence from Zambia. Has Major “Sankara” visited Zambia? If he did, where did he stay, hw long did he stay? Hw did he pay for his stay? Wht do immigration papers he completed whn entering the country say? Rwanda will want to see these papers. This is not over yet. Lungu is not his own president or merely president of PF but President of Zambia. He therefore has to explain to Zambians also because this tarnishes the country’s reputation.

  14. Almost all Zambians find this accusation very difficult to believe but the problem is that John’s choice of friends leaves much to be desired. His name can easily be soiled because of questionable characters he associates with. May be next time he will be careful with whom he decides to be paraded with.

  15. How do you choose Robert Gabriel Mugabe and Yoweri Kaguta Museven to mentor you seriously. Leaders with a litany of human rights abuses, honestly that is a recipe for disaster.

  16. Edgar Lungu is a caught pants down, why he financing terrorist in Rwanda. He is jealous of Rwanda’s economic achievements. Whom does he think he is?

    There is no smoke without fire.

    The terrorist himself mentioned him in court so what diplomacy is this guy talking about.

    Edgar Lungu must be arrested and handed over to ICC.

    PF must go!

  17. Oweeee, so KZ advice of lies has backfired, Isaac Chimpambe has capitulated what we all suspected as true. Ba KZ, you do not own the world bragging as you do, about Zambia and its myopic leadership. People of the world own this world and its affairs. Shady deals with your fellow traitors Amos Chanda, Findlay Valden and your principal done in darkness now exposed. Zambians will lobby Kagama to deal with you individually, don’t involve our country,

  18. if HH was mentioned in High Court of Rwanda by the rebel leader, the story could have been treated as gospel truth ….. Probably HH would have been arrested by now. Remember Mosho wrote a letter to International Court of Justice over the so called genocide in Namwala accusing HH……
    Children of GOD, beware of the wicked person who always scheme evil and don’t own up……
    Or brothers in PF claim to worship a true GOD yet Seer 1 was their spiritual powerhouse with his ” Do as I say.”….. You can fool some people always but you can never fool GOD. Your sins will find you out..…. MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN

  19. The trouble with the PF party is Disorganization! Who is the Spokesperson for the party? Why should the party entertain indiscipline where every Jim and Jack in the party can issue a statement? It’s PF that is aggravating the situation because of their own carelessness! Many have advised your PF president to avoid careless associations with individuals with international dubious reputation but he wouldn’t listen. He has been busy taking selfies with every Jim and Jack. Even if he is innocent, his name can easily be used to commit crime in his name. We hope he can learn something from this. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.
    Proverbs 13:20 Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of f00ls suffers harm.

  20. Lungu is an unprincipled tarven drunk thug……as some above pointed out , he worships Mugabe and MU7 ……

    Anything is possible with lungu.
    Look how he watched over the gassing of his own people hoping UPND would get the blame and get banned.

    Only a clear statement from Rwanda will clear his name…..

    And if Zambia and Rwanda enjoy such cordial relations, why the silence from Kigali ????

    Those defending lungu need counciling…..

  21. @Lincoln you are right, there’s a pattern which has been developing. Last month we are aligned to have exported election rigging expert to Malawi UTM Secretary General Patricia Kaliati called on the Zambian High Commission in Malawi to ensure that three top Zambian nationals leave the country.
    Kalyati claimed that former Minister of Finance, Dr. Katele Kalumba, former intelligence chief, Xavier Chungu and former State House Special Assistant for Politics, Kaizer Zulu were spotted in Malawi and have been brought to allegedly rig elections in favour of incumbent Peter Mutharika. Now we have aligations that
    President Edgar Lungu had bankrolled a Rwandan rebel leader accused of orchestrating deadly attacks in his country’s border regions.

  22. A brilliant move by the government. Liars will lie and the haters will still hate but clearly, now they won’t have a strong case. Lungu and PF has effectively put an end to all the speculations!

  23. Rwandan Rebelgate, a fake furore! Yet the opposition tried desperately to accommodate and make a huge controversy out of it, with this, the Government has taken strong stand against these lies, these controversies and the spurious allegations!

  25. The government has once again shown that the media cannot do anything, they are just information-bearers and ideally should act as a bridge between the establishment and the citizenry, no speculation, no opinions, no judging the situation and certainly no lies! #PFShuntsOffLies

  27. Fantastic, what a step by the PF government! On the lines of Lungu’s lines, revenge takes you nowhere so rightly acted by PF, instead of bickering about the futile lies spouted by the oppositon, Lungu has exhibited maturity like every other time!

  29. I am seriously concerned about the uneducated fights that go on on Lusaka times now. Ever since the. Clowns from the sketchy Lusaka watchdogs joined the few sketchy characters we always had on here; illogical discourse is the order of the day. This is a diplomatic role, so the government will quietly handle it. President Lungu does not have to give a press briefing on mere speculation. Also the president needs to stop trying to please everyone. At times refuse to even take photos with fellow leaders with questionable philosophies. kikikiki

  30. The Rwanda delegation sent by Lungu was snubbed and never met Paul Kagame, never discussed anything, kept waiting for more than 2 hours and later a clerk came to hand over a dossier over his sponsoring of rebels in Rwanda, a case before Rwanda courts, defendants capitulating and present details of the sponsor (president Edigar Lungu of Zambia) and others. The delegate was ordered to exit Rwanda. Bizarre, some PF cadres boast the eagle has landed from Kigali – shameful trolots

  31. Its a befitting response by Lungu to these immature and irresponsible opportunistic shoddy leaders and shameful behaviour by non-patriotic people who certainly dont belong to our country.

  32. Diplomacy is not weakness. Neither is it guilt. The opposition has made the loudest noise upon hearing Zambia has a “rebelgate” story. That Government is in damage control mode.
    When the tables turn and the president is exonerated, the unseasoned politicians will hatch other stories to keep watch on “checks and balances” and maintain their perceived relevance.

  33. Where is the proof of any of what you saY? the clerk came , dossier was given? How and why do we speak with this conviction? Were you present? Stop speculating about your President ! if have no other work, speculate about the games the other country may be playing.

  34. Conflicting statements here. Why should “the media allow the due process of diplomacy to take its course without any speculation and further unwanted speculation” if its not true. Mind you this story is all over Rwanda and people there are annoyed with us. No smoke without fire bane. Agree we are in trouble with PF. People have already concluded that there are truths in this case taking place in Rwanda.
    Serious disaster! God help us.

  35. We just need to hand over Lungu to Kagame, so they can sought him out in Rwanda. Lungu is a disgrace to Zambia. Chakolwa wa mu Chawama uyu, should’ve never been allowed anywhere near State House. Kabwalala uyu. Out of 54 African presidents, how can someone just zero in on you, out of the blues? And you want Zambians to keep quiet and pretend like nothing happened? Come on ba mumbwe imwe. We need to clear our country’s name. We need to hear the truth. If Lungu had anything to do with this, he’ll need to resign immediately. Bakabwalala imwe ba PF.

  36. Thats it , u guys wont just lose power next year but ll be assassinated by Kagame too. All bets are off now. U picked the wrong fight, Kagame is not the type of man u ll apologize or tell “Covid-19/Climate change” stories about. You are on the man’s list of elimination now. Anything can happen to u guys from now onwards, and Zambians dont ve the military & expertise for assassins.
