  1. The question that all CK’s sympathizers have failed to address is that: Did Kambwili do what he’s been convicted for? If he did it then where is the persecution? It’s better he just accepts that he’s guilty. His supporters have put hope in a wrong solution, bail pending appeal will just grant him temporary relief. But are the chances of his appeal being successful? 1 year on each count is a fair sentence so I doubt whether it can be overturned on appeal. What I see is that the Higher Court might confirm or increase his sentence. So I advise CK’s supporters to sober up. Emotions don’t solve problems. Now his wife and daughter are behind bars, that wasn’t necessary. Lawyers will still send their bills, whether he’s jailed or not

  6. My earnest recommendation is don’t appeal this sentence, when God shows mercy take it, it’s many times better than the alternative. The high court will change it to 5 years. One year is not a long time and you can be out in 6 months for good behavior.

  7. We have confidence in our independent courts. Let the judge rule and follow the law to the letter. It is called rule of law. The wlfe should not have been advised to attend in her emotional state. Doesn’t the family have advisors. She is tired from long flight and not in right state of mind.

  8. Mr. Kambwili must be missing his afternoon trips to London to have tea.

    Let this be a lesson to all you politicians, including the ones serving in government.

    This Kambwili thought he was untouchable. Busy insulting Tonga people and threatening citizens. Today, he is someone’s b1tch in prison.

  9. If anyone is in doubt, PF is not going out of power through the ballot! The signs are there for everyone to see. The next elections will be rigged and Zambians will just laugh about it. How can political leadership get arrested at will and all it’s citizens can say is “iyeee chapiba ba Kambwili”? Watch the space….

  10. When I lived in the village, there was only one indication that it was likely to rain any moment. The computer age of today pridicts rain for anything that happens including the jailing of a criminal.

  11. IN ALL THE CASE KAMBWILI IS UNJUSTLY SUFFERING FOR ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH NATIONAL PLUNDER. WE ARE TOLD HE ONLY MADE FAULTS WITHIN HIS OWN COMPANY AND FAMILY TRANSACTIONS IN 2013, AN ISSUE WHICH ONLY AN ACT OF CAUTIONING OR ADVICE TO CK. AND TH FAMILY AT LARGE. DURING THE 2016 GENERAL ELECTIONS THE SO CALLED ANOMALLY OF CK FAMILY PAPER WORK FOR CK’S COMPANY WAS WELL KNOWN BUT NOTHING TAKEN WRONG SIMPLY BECAUSE CK WAS THEN A HENCH MAN OF ECL AND USED AS A KING MAKER. SURELY AND UNDER NORMAL GOVERNANCE OF JUSTICE CK IS NOT SUPPOSED TO SUFFER IN THATWAY! YES IF ALL THE WELL KNOWN NATIONAL WEALTH PLUNDERERS WERE NOT BEING SHILDED OR PROTECTED BY STATE PARTICULARLY BY THE PRESIDENT NO COCOMMENT WERE NOT TO BE MADE. IMAGINE THE MINISTRYVOF LAND WHICH IS ALSO MANAGED BY THE PRESIDENT…

  12. The current situation defeats the whole purpose of us being independent . We are now enslaved by the ruling class, yes, we are enslaved, since justice being selectively administered . It is only yesterday when one person attacked an entire police station and was treated with paediatric gloves .

We need to hold accountable the office bearers at some point in order to stop this trend.

  14. The problem with CK is he did not
    Bring himself down.He kept opening
    His mouth to please the media and
    His supporters. Respect the government of the day.He kept on
    Talking about the judge also contributed.lastly the wife and children know that police will not be
    On their side so should have humbled
    Themselves.
