United Party for National Development (UPND) Deputy Secretary General for Politics, Patrick Mucheleka has lifted the lid on his recent incarceration at Kasama’s Milima Prison a few weeks ago.
He says he still doesn’t know yet why he and his counterparts (Elias Mubanga and others) were arrested and charged with a non-bailable offense of aggravated robbery during the recent Lukashya by elections.
Speaking when Lusaka Province UPND youth delegation paid him a visit at his New Kasama residence this morning, Mucheleka stated that Zambia’s criminal justice system needed reforms as it had led to wasting of human capital due to the high number of youths being imprisoned.
Furthermore, Mr Mucheleka, who accused the PF of having degenerated into a full blown dictatorship, stated that his 1 month stay at Milima Prison had heightened his desire to fight for a safer and fairer Zambia.
He also encouraged the youths to ensure that they went flat out to encourage Zambians to go and register as voters, stating that as the majority in the country’s population, it was incumbent upon them to ensure that the country was rescued from the shackles of tyranny and delinquency had engulfed the country under the PF government.
Mucheleka also revealed that the walking stick that he was usually pictured with during his court appearances whilst he was at Milima Prison, jokingly adding that the majority of the youths who were serving prison sentences due to drug-related offenses revealed that they resorted to drug abuse due to lack of employment in the country.
He said that his one-month-long incarceration had made him ten times stronger.
Leader of the delegation, Anderson Banda, whose the Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson, expressed displeasure at the unjust manner in which the PF arrested and imprisoned Mucheleka, but added that it was gratifying that he (Mucheleka) had finally walked to freedom.
He said that the youths were proud of the leadership that he continued offering to them as deputy SG of the largest political party in the country.
Magdalene Banda, who’s the vice chairperson for Gender under the youth wing, said the youths, who looked to him as a father figure, were relieved to have him out of prison.
Does not require multiple choice, it is just the side you belong. How can that be aggravated robbery on any day sure?
Instructions from above. Just set up a truth commission after taking over power in 2021 so that the person who issued those malicious instructions is identified and accounts for his actions
This article is full of mistakes, unfinished sentences and generally not fit to be an article. What is wrong with LT, do you proof read? Do you have editors? Or do you just exist to destroy important news involving the opposition? Awe naimwe, bupuba ubu, mulebomfya ba grade 6?
Teka umutima Mucheleka. Wilatoloka nga chilemba ashilapya mumpoto.
Mucheleka you don’t know the reason really? That arrest was intended to disturb your campaigns for the Lukashya seat for the advantage of the ruling PF. That’s why people are saying this Government is even worse than the colonial Government
I belong to the PF but an objective member. The reality is that as a ruling party we have failed both on food matters and governance. Unemployment unacceptably very high and no breakthrough insight, the country is just choked with RECKLESS BORROWING. We currently in PF do not have a competent leader that can take us out of this mess. Don’t be cheated please
Remain strong. Atleast don’t be bought like PEP.
The level of ignorance is concerning. This f00l has clearly not learned from his past wrong doing. He is showing lack of insight into his crime and is therefore still a risk to society and the public. He shouldn’t have been released. There is nothing more dangerous than a criminal who doesn’t know what wrong he did. It is called a psychopath
Guys did find Tutwa yet, arrest him. Boyi Chola Katanga you need call umuguzi Tutwa for insighting violence in Kanye. I don’t like people who bark threats. I like people like Kaiser, who publicly assault people. Kaizar takes it in his own hands, not involve cadres to use pangas.
But, under ESAF, the Chiluba government has scrapped food subsidies, causing prices to soar way beyond what most of the nine million Zambians can afford. The staple corn flour, for instance, shot up from 215 kwacha per 25-kg bag in 1991 to 15,000 kwacha this year.
I TRUST ALL THESE ARE HALLUSINATION OF PF AND WILL HOUNT AT LAST ECL BECAUSE HE DOES NOT KNOW HOW HE MUST STOP THE VICE AND HARM DONE BY HIS PEOPLE. KAMPYONGO HAS DONE MORE HARM THAN EVER.
