We have today put to rest Joseph Kaunda who was shot dead by PF thugs dressed in Police uniforms last week.
His demise and that of State prosecutor Nsama Nsama Chipyoka add to the list of many other citizens that the PF has killed.
It is a sad moment for our country but we want to assure all those whose loved ones have been killed by the PF that we will do what we can to continue supporting the families and PF must stop killing people.
And our message to professional police officers out there is that please do not kill your brothers and sisters. We are not fighting you but fighting for you together with generations to come so that all can have a better life.
And to the PF, we can only say that the blood of all these people you have killed will forever haunt you and if you think your decisions pleases God, Almighty as giver of life, may you continue doing so but you shall not stop a decided population to democratically remove you from office next year.

Rest in peace Joseph Kaunda, Nsama Nsama Chipyoka and many others killed by the PF.
May God bless you all.

Hakainde Hichilema
UPND PRESIDENT

  1. This what happens when you militarize the police. Zambians don’t own or curry guns what should the police carry heavy machine guns?

  2. This I don’t understand. First police shot. Then now it’s pf thugs. Let us mourn first. Don’t make us to start debating, on this matter until we are done mourning.

  3. Heartbreaking pictures. I said this before and I will say it again: human beings are their worst enemies. They will fight a disease like Covid with great sensitivity and intuition, even impose lockdowns and all but they won’t hesitate to unleash force to oppress and humiliate each other for the lust for power.

  4. Doesn’t anyone this nothing wrong with the way the police present themselves …dressed like thugs even using military jungle camouflage covering, these are outdated crowd control techniques …but what would you say when you have a handpicked nobody as an IG picked by a lazy man who is masquerading as a Head of State.

  5. A murderous government. Where did we find it, in the yellow pages?
    … and the gassing and the lynchings, lest we forget.

  6. Nine Chale aka Nenah Cheery – Who are you talking about…why can’t you speak out and articulate what you are trying to say …you are not in your home in Germany where your German wife/hubby has you under her/his thumb.

  8. Tomorrow is Monday let’s see if La7y Lungu will have the balls to state what is in the Police Report…he will just shelf it like all the rest of them as he already knows the truth and his handlers know it as well.

  9. The presence of ZP at the funeral especially in their in the very intimidating military fatigue makes a mockery of the people in mourning. In recent years the Zambian police force, as well as political caderism has become highly militarised. The government should really do all within its capacity to reign in this trend before the elections. The starting point would be the ruling PF to disband its militant youth wings (the American?) by outlawing or military combant uniforms within its party regalia and thereafter ensuring the opposition follow suite and in tandem having the police tone down. Otherwise the current situation, which may only grow worse as we move towards elections is a recipy for disaster and anarchy.

  10. Unnecessary deaths caused by that desperate pillock HH. I hope the police can see the danger this small boy hh poses when he loses next year. This is why we procured riot gear as we know he won’t accept defeat next year. We just ask the police to do their job diligently to ensure the country’s peace is maintained. The country is bigger than one cow called hh

  11. We have mother fcking thugs in leadership! We need to get rid of them at the next elections! These are thieves that have brought all sorts of problems we never had before. Lungu and Kampyongo are the imbeciles leading us into abyss! We shall stop them in the tracks next years. Arsewhores!!

  12. Police dressed in menacing form of jungle camouflage as if at war yet meant to ‘protect’ the citizenry! This intimidating posture has alienation effects on public trust and appreciation for the law and order institution! The Lord be praised that the deceased was put to rest in a peaceful and dignified manner. Zambians must not forget or erase these images.

  13. Lungu is a murderous thug who has dupped his followers with a bible he carries in his pocket and the humble tag

    The man is the worst , ever.

    No other president has presided over so many political deaths like lungu, infact all presidents combined can’t match the number of citizens murdered under lungu by police and his PF thugs…

  14. And it ends there, he has campaigned. If the widow makes a mistake to call on him for a bag of mealie meal he’ll chase her like a dog, just like he did to Kuchunga Simusamba. We know him

  15. WTF were the police doing at the burial? Did they think UPND were going to loot the graves? That was very disrespectful and very un Zambian.They killed Joseph Kaunda and then have the audacity to supervise his burial? PF and their police are really upsetting Zambians!!! Even those who never cared much for UPND are going to become UPND supporters.

    • The police with their arsenal concealed in their ‘limousines’ had a mission to agitate the mourners for cause to unleash mayhem since a reason has to be found that would put a lot of the UPND leadership especially HH behind bars! Just connect police actions when it involves the opposition parties even when not invited there is more than enough police presence that is never available when requested for to help in maintaining the safety of gatherings! Police followed the mourners wishing hard that chaos ensues to reward them a field day breaking bones and their sniper fire picking out the marked targets!

  16. Cowardly school yard bullies dressed in full battle dress. Other nations are fighting Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and ISIS, you come to intimidate a funeral gathering. Just pathetic.

    But it is to be expected from our overmatched wannabe emperor at State House. Can’t stand up to the IMF, but wants to test his manhood against unarmed citizens and a peaceful funeral.

  17. I couldnt help but shed tears. My country people, where have we gone wrong? Chilufya Tayali, Stephen Kampyongo and Kakoma Kanganja answer the question that God asked Cain after he killed his brother; Genesis 4v9-10 ^GOD said to Cain where is your brother?….What have you done? Listen your brothers blood is crying out to me from the ground} Indeed, Kaunda and Nsamas blood is crying out loud from the ground, it is calling for justice, Our Heavenly Father doesnt sleep. Even if this case may be cover up, the Heavenly Father willstrike His justice at His appropriate time for this guys who had a big hand in this deaths

  18. HH’s family is safe in their new Kasama fortress while poor cadres are sacrificed. The dead cadre was ferried from Chilanga

  19. Lungu and the rest of his PF gang had hoped for only the deaths of UPND supporters….

    Then the kind of posts you see above from the PF rats would have flooded the airwaves blaming HH …..

    Unfortunately their plan backfired because a public prosecuter was also murdered by a stray bullet ment for the UPND….

    Karma always comes back to bite the evil….

  20. The problems in Zambia is that we have politicians who profit from the deaths of people, these were a calculated deaths now they are happy very happy God doesn’t take delights in such people.
    Any one who participated in those deaths is a devil he is cursed he will never see any good thing in his political career .
    The blood of those innocent souls will haunt him, you don’t take advantage of those suffering to further political intentions.

  21. May the cries and tears of the mourners not go in vain
    Your name is Jehova, your heart must be broken even as we try to understand these circumstances
    For those of you cannot see beyond your partisan stance, lelo it’s Joseph Kaunda’s and Nsamas families, tomorrow could be you and yours. Remember God cannot be mocked and neither does he need the kwacha.

    It is sad but true that many people will die for their democratic freedoms….

    Let’s put it another way for you …..

    ” there are some politicians who are willing to murder citizens with impunity for merly exercising their democratic rights so as just to cling on to power…”

  23. Look at the PF thugs above……

    Trying to blame people for not breaking any laws……

    Why should one be murdered just because he has escorted his leader to the police ????

  24. MAY THE SOUL OF JOSEPH KAUNDA REST IN PEACE. MAY THE PERSON WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER ROAST IN RESTLESS PROBLEMS BOTH HERE AND HEREAFTER. MAY THOSE WHO WANT TO CLING TO POWER USING DEATHS OF CITIZENS LOSE POLITICAL POWER. WE NEED REAL PEACE IN OUR NATION. SO GOD HELP US!!

  25. Just the Language coming from UPND leader HH….. “PF thugs dressed in Police uniform”…… learn to unite people in times of tragedy…you will need the same Police officers protecting you once you become President…or are you going to have your own tribesmen protecting you…looks like HH hasn’t learnt anything since 2006….respect the men and women in Uniform…whilst there’re bad Policemen…we also have good Policemen….REST IN PEACE my dear brother

  26. This is what Politicians want and we all know them….now HH has a voice taking advantage of the dead person….for this reason i hate all Politicians….PF,MMD,UPND etc….all useless..deep down his heart HH is rejoicing and he wishes more can be killed so that he can gain his Political Mileage

  27. This regime and it’s disgraceful cheerleaders everywhere, including on this blog, need to be rid of now! This has gone far enough.
    History is replete with people have expressed nothing but peaceful protest but have in the end been pushed too far and have had no choice but to pick up arms – especially with regimes that will never allow a level playing field

  28. The picture of the mourning boy sums up what this government has reduced Zambia to. The perpetrators, commanded by their power lustful leaders even hang about in their terrorist fatigue in the background. And then there are some despicable characters on this blog who go at preposterous lengths to defend such.

  29. Kaizer, who pulled the trigger? Whose instructions? Your former boss is always pulling strings in these matters!! So don’t point the finger elsewhere it is No 1. Next is his minister!! Then the PIG and finally You!!

  30. Human life under PF does not matter. after killing Joseph Kaunda in cold blood the police command has got guts even to.supervise the burial ceremony. This type of action if not curbed will just distance Pipo from PF grz. Even the statement from,Kampyongo, police command and PF officials is like the death of Joseph Kaunda is worthless. The PF police have teasted blood and will continue shading more blood. Ester Katongo is behaving as though she is not a mother. This country.is being destroyed fast by PF thugs who are busy trying to prevent one man from standing as Presidential candidate come 12/08/21. H H is destined next president no amount of threats and arm twisting tactics will prevent from achieving God’s objectives. Every day the PF are campaigning for HH through their actions. This…

  31. Deeply saddened by the two deaths. May God strengthen the bereaved family during this trying time. It’s horrifying to lose a loved one in such a manner. MHSRIP.

  32. Mhsrip. But then what business did he have escorting the boy hh to police offices? You mean the boy hh could not go alone with a lawyer? Who is suffering now? Not the boy for sure. People should learn not to be used by these thugs. Ask yourselves, was mutinta anywhere near her husband on that fateful day? No. Any of hh’s children escorting their father? No! Wake up Zambian fools or you will die for nothing. What a waste of life!

  33. DYING FOR ANY POLITICIAN IS JUST…., I DON’T KNOW.
    WE MUST BE ASKING OURSELVES VERY SIMPLE QUESTIONS:
    1. ARE THE CHILDREN OF A POLITICIAN YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DIE FOR AMONG THE GROUP AND IF NOT WHY NOT AND WHY ARE YOU THERE YOURSELF?
    2. IS YOUR LIFE THAT CHEAP?
    3. IS THE CASE PRIVATE TO THE POLITICIAN OR TO DO WITH PARTY FUNCTIONARY?
    MIND YOU, A POLITICIAN YOU ARE DYING FOR HAS LEFT HIS CHILDREN HOME BECAUSE THEIR LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOURS- THAT IS WHAT HE/SHE THINKS.
